Since ages people have raised questions and some have even concluded that " Ramayana and Mahabharata are fiction hence do not have relevance in our life."
But the faithful have said and challenged the faithless by assertively stating "that these scriptures are true and factual. ". 
The Ramayana and Mahabharata are not only events of the past. Events are also facts and the relevant question is what is the impact of these facts. 
Facts without impact are nothing but  fiction for the present. Chronological events without impact have occurred and forgotten over generations.
But the great Ramayana and Mahabharata are beyond fiction and these facts have created impact since time  immemorial because  they not only deal with the past, they deal with life. Since life exists in all time zones,  these great literatures stand the test of time and go on creating impact for one and all.
They are heart churning , intellect stirring, mind absorbing and senses stunning. These literatures have created revolution in the society  by building it and not breaking it. When the Rama Lila and the stories of the Pandavas are enacted all over Bharata in festivals no one questions whether they are facts or fiction.
The literatures are soaked with impact. The atheist and theist both cry, laugh and are completely absorbed.    
A great justice once remarked , " my dad divided our property, my brother  received wealth and I received education, confidence and the Ramayana." 
The followers of Ramayana do not bother too much to prove the events of the past they  just go on experiencing, Sri Rama and His fascinating stories. They become  a part of the essence of those stories .
Choice is ours---  Fact, Fiction or Impact?
