The Aaj mere dukh ki koi seema nahi meme originates from the 1987’s Indian TV Series Ramayan created, written, and directed by Ramanand Sagar. In episode 8, Janak (the character played by Mulraj Rajda) was disappointed with the kings and princes who had come to his kingdom Mithila to complete his challenge of lifting, bending and stringing the bow of Siva to marry his daughter. He says,”Aaj mere dukh, meri nirasha ka koi paravar nahi.” It means that today his grief knows no boundaries. During the 21-day nationwide lockdown, the series was re-telecasted from 28 March 2020 with a one-hour episode during the morning and a one-hour episode during the night on channel DD National. According to DD National, the show achieved a world record on April 16, 2020, when 77 million people watched it in one day, breaking the previous record set by the American TV series Game of Thrones. The huge popularity paved the way for memes that were relatable since the upbringing and traditions of Indian families are inspired by the ancient Indian Sanskrit Epic Ramayana. The popular use of the Aaj mere dukh ki koi seema nahi meme is to mock someone/something who is in pain and agony.
