The "Ramayan" was back on television on Saturday, recalling for many those epic mornings an age ago when entire families, and even neighbours, gathered before clunky television boxes for their weekly fix of television and religion.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar on Saturday tweeted that he was watching "Ramayan" at home but deleted it later after people criticised him and brought his attention to the plight of migrant workers.
Actor Kajal Agarwal said the show brought back memories of childhood. "Taking me back to childhood. Ramayan and Mahabharat on @DDNational with the entire family. This was our routine weekend plan. So glad it’s started, great way for kids to learn Indian mythology," she wrote.
Marathi TV actress Akshaya posted on Instagram the glimpses of the show and it seems like Akshaya went back to her childhood after watching the show.
Dipika Chikhlia aka Sita asked her fans to enjoy the TV show once again and learn something from it. The actress signed off her video by saying 'Jai Shri Ram'.
