What: Fever Radio Ramayan, tune in to Fever 104 FM to listen.
Why: Because an army of super talented theatre personalities (Anupam Kher, Ratna Pathak, Jayati Bhatia) have come together to resurrect the lost age of Ram, so the least you can do is listen in. Sit patiently through the intro bhajan, and you’ll be rewarded with a gravelly-voiced narration by Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah’s deliciously sinister Raavan. Epic!
