The Epic Battle.
Last week I was ordered by my remote command post (my parents) that we should call India every week instead of every alternate week, now that my wife is going through a tough pregnancy.

For those of you who are not familiar with MahaBharat, it is the great indian epic, a battle of good over evil, which was captured in over a gazillion episodes in Indian TV as a Mega Series in 1989. What is going on is the rerun !
I cant believe my phone call got bumped by a television series rerun. Not that much happens in these mega serials (soap opera's). Guy walks from the far end of the hall in the palace to the kings throne and the episode is over !!
Goes to show you the impact Soap Opera's have on every day life in india!
