“यदा यदा ही धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत, अभ्युथानम् अधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् |
परित्राणाय साधुनाम विनाशाय च: दुष्कृताम, धर्मं संस्थापनार्थाय सम्भावामी युगे युगे ||”
This verse from the Bhagavad Gita is ironed into my mind and most of the people who have watched Mahabharat TV serial. I never understood what it meant never even tried, I still don’t know the meaning but I would learn about it gradually as I study Sanskrit.
Coming to TV serials the kind of following they had in the 90’s that is really impressive and hard to find today, but back then it was just Doordarshan that we watched there was no distraction of so many channels bombarded on you that you are lost of choice. Ramayan, Mahabharat, Chandrakanta, Malgudi Days, Chitrahaar, Jai Hanuman, Bomkesh Bakshi, The Great Maratha ….. the list just goes on, feeling nostalgic a ride through memory lane.
