Vikram Aur Betaal was a children's television programme aired on DD National. The series contained stories from Indian mythology that aim at teaching kids lessons of life while entertaining them. The concept of the program was based on Baital Pachisi, a collection of tales about the semi-legendary King Vikram (identified as Vikramāditya) and the Vetala, a huge vampire-like being.
For centuries, people have looked towards the East in their quest for knowledge. The past is rich with tales of brilliance, both entertaining and educative. Betaal Pachisi, written nearly 2,500 years ago by Mahakavi Somdev Bhatt, are spellbinding stories told to the wise King Vikramaditya by the wily ghost Betaal. The tales of Vikram and Betaal possess a wealth of pageantry and splendor of long ago. They are eternally enthralling stories which parents insists their children watch and share all the wealth, wonder and wisdom of this series.
Children and adults everywhere can experience the same sense of excitement, learn the same infinite lessons we here anticipate week after week, lessons that plant a seed of knowledge that flourishes while it excites their imagination, evokes their curiosity, King Vikram and the Ghost authentically re-creates the grandeur of that long-ago time when kings, queens, princesses, sages and countries strode the earth, larger than life itself.
