Sita, the first-ever Indian under lockdown! India’s internet generation is celebrating the reruns of Ramayan with memes and hashtags.

We’ve all heard stories from back in the day about people taking off their footwear before the telecast of Ramayan and women doing aartis of their TV set when Arun Govil, who plays Ram, appeared on screen. In today’s India, Ram and Sita are being celebrated with hashtags and memes. Here’s proof.
