I remember the day when the first TV was purchased with the great fun fair by me. The date was 25th January 1987. This date is memorable for me because the Ramayana serial telecasted its first episode on that day.

I was posted at Sheoganj in Rajasthan on those days, I along with neighbors used to gather in front of my newly purchased TV to watch the iconic shows Ramayana. Later on, we all enjoyed the TV serial Mahabharat as well. I was living there alone and TV became a great and useful friend of mine.
