Are Ramayan and Mahabharat relevant during lockdown?

 

With Ramayan airing on TV during India's lockdown state, many people have questioned the motives of the producers and networks. Some folks feel that the evergreen program is meant to inspire the new generation as it did when it first aired on Doordarshan in the 90s, while others feel it is meant to engage the population and encourage people to stay home. The latter is certainly showing its effects. Back in the 90s, Sunday mornings at 10 am meant the roads were empty and Mahabharat would be on in every household. Today, the same shows are having the same effects - certainly a good thing when social distancing is the biggest challenge for the government. However, is it still relevant in today's global and digital world? Nitish Bharadwaj, whose portrayal of Lord Krishna in the original Mahabharat enchanted millions of people, certainly seems to think so. Check it out.
