21st century was the break for TV series in India. All the great serials of our times came into existence during that time and they stayed for a long time. They did that with the help of time leaps, resurrecting dead characters along with some immortal ones, and other miraculous tricks. While you are reading this, some scenes from your mom's favorite daily soap are probably flashing in front of your eyes. We are sorry you had to watch all of that but admit it – you are also guilty of enjoying them since decades.
Time is one thing no one can stop nor can we control its pace. Time has this very weird property of changing pace according to the situation. It will pass slowly as you wait for a serial but the serial gets over in a jiffy. Theory of relativity works for TV serials as well; who knew! But one thing this tells us that time flies and the series you think you watched last month were actually broadcasted decades ago. Do not believe us? Let's have a look at our favorite daily soaps and the time they were aired.
