Taking me back to childhood. #Ramayan and #Mahabharat on @DDNational with the entire family! This was our routine weekend plan. 😍 so glad it’s restarted, great way for kids to learn Indian Mythology. pic.twitter.com/ZFc4X0oTFl— Kajal Aggarwal (@MsKajalAggarwal) March 28, 2020
However, not everyone was happy with the government’s focus on the telecast of Ramayan when hundreds of thousands of migrant workers are walking miles to return to their homes.
As the worldwide cases of coronavirus approach 6 lakh, the number of cases in India has also been rising steadily with more 20 deaths reported so far. The United States has now the most number of cases across the world with over 1,700 deaths reported till now.
