What is NOT a good message to give out is showing that ladies can be this foolhardy and get away with it so self righteously like Pratigya and Arushi .
IMO no one would be so stupid so as to believe what is being shown is what OUGHT to happen in reality....and incidentally, how can you be so sure that Arushi will indeed get away with it, knowing what we know about Shakti? Wait and watch......How can u be so sure that no one wud be so stupid ? Day in and day out we read and see about films and media affecting the minds of youngsters ..maybe u and I are not so stupid but how can u be this sure of ALL ?
Who condones rape ? Not me ! Nor u or anyone .But what I felt was if some reality is shown with these TV characters ...........many innocent young gals , brimming with spirit and idolising TV characters like Pratigya will think twice before they copy such foolish things .The actress Pooja Gor herself admitted that some gals decided to deal with eveteasing like Pratigya did . U see , Viewers r very naive and believe fiction .
Are you suggesting that girls or women that stand up to men sexually harrassing them are naive??? I suggested nothing dear .And as a matter of fact SOME ARE . If a gunda whips out a bottle of acid and disfures the face of a gal , she may have other thoughts later .
I sincerely hope not. I happen to be one of the people you therefore refer to as I would most definitely stand up for myself, defend myself and take positive action against a bloke that tried to sexually harass me. Good for you then . But I would not advocate that for girls in UP , Bihar kinda states dealing with GUNDAS . They r not college boys doing harmless teasing . Thats MY OPINION .
What would you have girls do exactly? Have written loads of posts earlier I dont care to go into that NOW . If ur interested look them up or just let it be .
You cannot possible take this show as seriously as you do as being representative of or being influential to young girls as showing what to do in a like for like situation. The character that is Pratigya has made loads of errors of judgment, and has done loads of nonsensical things purely to move the story on for the purposesof entertainment. Hell if we take it that seriously then her marriage itself is utterly ridiculous and should be a million to one chance of happening in real life....surely everyone knows this?Again ........I see u vouching for ALL . How and why , I dont understand .I am saying some like u and me understand it but many gullible uneducated , different kind of people watch this show too and media is a strong influence . And if u dont agree with me and feel that ALL UNDERSTAND , we differ strongly .
It is awful to enter marraige with purposes like teaching lessons or showing family members spite . This is the run of the mill pathetic stuff most Indian serials are made of!!!
What's new here???? Is it so distasteful here because they are showing a female doing it instead of a male?There is no question of male female here , Whats wrong is wrong .
This show did show awful reality ..the blackening of face , domestic violence , Kesar's marital rape , abortions etc .So why not show some more to warn people of the real consequences such a foolish action would merit .
Why?? Are the CVs our parents that they have to teach us good values and morals? Do the CVs have some mandate or political agenda to propagate moral standards that they should tell us "the real consequences of such foolish actions"?
I dont think so. They dont say "do as Pratigya does" and frankly no matter how much they say or anyone else says this show is either based on reality or is realistic, it is a daily soap, a drama or whatever else you may call it and its principle purpose is to attract viewers for entertainment and to presumable make the makers some money and fame - not to take on the reponsibilty of educating girls as to how they should live their lives. My dear I know CVs are not our parents and so do like minded intelligent people on this thread who agreed with me . The purpose of films and such dramas is to entertain yet they have censor boards to show them their limits ..........why ? Coz whatever the purpose ..to entertain or to make money , THEY END UP INFLUENCING THE MASSES TO SOME DEGREE and so Censor forces them to take a certain amount of responsibility . This show was publicly applauded as a woman empowerment show and how Pratigya was a role model for women on an open podium . Well if they say it publicly , we voice our opinion that differs on this forum . Thats all .Surely if they have a right to say their opinion we have one to voice ours on a forum open only for discussion ? And lastly ..Lets agree to disagree as we are on two parallel tracks here . I see no point in discussing further .
