New Delhi: Re-telecasting of old shows on Doordarshan has been a fruitful decision. With millions thronging the TV sets on more time to watch their favourite epics Ramayan and Mahabharat again amid the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc – these narratives certainly brought some peace and wisdom at homes.

‘Ramayan’ received so much love from the audiences back in the late 80s and early 90s that even today, when the government decided to re-telecast it amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak – the show has topped TRPs.
