I must say, very nice topic!
Well, I don't think Balika Vadhu is sending any wrong messages at all.And i don't think that child marriages have increased because of this show either...as weird as this may sound, i feel like that's what the government is saying to ban this show.I mean come on, this show has been on for a while...and now suddenly they want to ban this show?...What in the World?
Someone other than them have exactly put an effort on letting everyone know about child marriage by simply making a show about it...which in my opinion, is a topic that the authorities [the government] have kind of put less attention to. Child marriages STILL happen. 40% of the world's child marriages occur in India...and THAT'S a proven fact. I don't know why the government is wasting their time on trying to ban this show when they could use their time to STOP child marriages...if things like this weren't happening in India then no one would have made a show about it...child marriages are still happening in India and there is no full stop to it yet so why can't one make a show about it?...Why can't one let everyone know about it?...I feel that Balika Vadhu is showing us as it is...they showing us the facts!...Which i totally appereciate and give a big hand to everyone that is involved in this show!
...This show touches eveyrone's heart...doesn't it?...I know more about child marriages now than before and its only because of this show...I am now aware of how big this situation is...I am now aware of how wrong this is...and i am now aware of how stopping child marriage is not impossible, it IS possible...Aren't you?
And the other thing is...I don't know why people forget that this is a SHOW too...I feel that, to keep this show going Balika Vadhu is doing a FANTASTIC job...its true that they are showing every little facts possible...and they are also showing a little different elements like the love life of the Anandi & Jagdish...Sugna& Shyam etc!...and some of us here think that that's giving a wrong message but i feel that its not giving any wrong message...after any kind of marriage stuff like this DOES happen...its natural and i think everyone should except that.
..I mean what did you expect after a marriage?...i know they are too young and all but they have been put in to that situation.
That's all i have got to say!
And please do remember that its only my opinion..!
