Quite significantly, even after 38 years, the Ramayana magic is still alive. Ramayana trended both on social media and on Twitter and thousands of Twitterati shared pics of their images while watching Ramanaya were shared. Several have tweeted their thanks to the DD for airing Ramayana. "Thanks Modi, Thanks DD" went viral on the first day of Ramayana.
This 78 episode serial has shown that it still retains the same magic. "There were several homes where the people offered Harathi and performed poojas before the serial started. It has also helped in building a movement in favour of the Ayodhya issue," recalled an oldtimer.
