A few days ago, I met with an old friend of mine after so long. I certainly realised that in the hustle and bustle of daily life, how often we stopped rendezvousing. Belonging to the middle class, we too had to face many financial challenges where our social lives stuck between being mad with what we have and struggling for what we did not. Moreover, I was no different. Although, that flocking was not the long one, but was long enough for me to realise what has been changed. There was a time when we used to rendezvous for hours and talked nonsense. Now, we had only a few minutes, and we discussed only concerns and career. Life has now been more egregious than we ever thought it would be.
Remember those Sunday mornings when our 11 AM slot used to be booked for DD National to listen to that baritone voice of Mr Harish Bhimani narrating “Main Samay Hu”.
Yes, you got it right! I am talking about the greatest TV series of all time, Mahabharata.
Mahabharata, the most epic mythology was the ancient Game of Thrones (GOT) for 90s kids. It was probably the best epic of ancient India. In the late 80s and early 90s, Producer B.R Chopra with his son Director Ravi Chopra portrayed Mahabharata on the small screen and immortalised the same in the heart of all the mythological lovers.
