The announcement of re-telecast of the epic show Ramayan is a dream come true for those who wanted to relive the nostalgia. The mythological series created, written and directed by Ramanand Sagar will be re-telecast during the 21-day lockdown in the country. PM Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a nationwide lockdown in the wake of coronavirus. There was a huge demand to begin the re-telecast of some popular shows including Ramayan in this time of crisis. People mentioned how life on Sunday mornings would come to a standstill when it used to telecast on Doordarshan National. Ramayan was hugely popular during its time. Hence, re-telecasting a mythological show will help reduce stress when normal life has paralysed. The series originally ran from 25 January 1987 to 31 July 1988.
