We as a nation love to talk, chat, discuss, debate about any issue under the sun....and mind it without being a part of the solution of course!!. I read an update in FB by some person after the third episode of Satyamev Jayate was aired which states that Amir Khan should have spent more episodes on each issue....only 1.5 hrs is not enough to discuss such serious topics. I just fret....why we want to discuss more?? How would that have helped more if Amir had covered these social evils like female foeticide, child sex abuse, dowry spread across tons of episode?
Then there are these bunch of cynics who frown since the first episode. There are so many
craps crabs around. They shout over the top
of their voice against this 'push -button activism'. They tweet, update, blog,
speak how Amir Khan is trying to hog the limelight by pulling the strained
nerves of common man...yes saying this strangely they accept the
existence of these 'strained nerves'. I was never an ardent fan of Amir Khan ,
but liked him as a performer .....(I must admit however corny it may sound but
I had been a huge fan of SRK for many years and still have some soft corner in my 'Dil' for him !!!). But
personally I like the initiative & research done by Amir Khan to construct
this show. Even if he is trying to grab the attention but still I prefer his
choice of work to do that is better than some Yoga- guru who keeps on
oscillating between Pranayama-politics-black money. Amir is doing a fairly decent job
by making people go through those issues which we are aware of but always prefer to keep them in back-burner.
After crabs, there are ostriches who live in their rosy world and keep on saying "Arre Amir kitna gandh dikha raha hai!!!( what crap Amir is showing!!)". This species did not welcome this concept of reality shown on TV...they prefer scripted Rakhi Ka Swayambar or Bigg Boss more!!!
Third episode Amir took up 'Dowry'....quite a balanced episode where he not only showed perils of this evil but also other crooked customs born due to it like 'Pakrauwa Vyah (kidnapped marriage)'. As per me dowry is an evil which has taken many lives till now and is the mother of 'female foeticide'.
So, in a way this show is conducting a crash course on the so called 'Gandh' of our society which has engulfed our society & lives like termites.....The whole syllabus is far more ugly but the need of the hour is requesting us to attend at least the crash course which covers the important points for final examinations.
