That temple scene was extremely stupid and it did not make sense.....if the idea was just to show the badi bahu to choose Radhika then they could have done that with Radhika singing and the badi bahu listening to it...they just used it to show Radhika standing quietly and the badi bahu misjudging her quietness for meekness and then choosing her.........Radhika was quiet because she was overwhelmed.She tried to give an explanation but that lunatic kept on barking and there was a hostile crowd in front of her and that most probably overwhelmed her. If they are showing social ills then they better show retribution or solution.
The pandits dictat regarding the child marriage has been somewhat take care off by Mansarams stubborness regarding Radhika getting educated and his continuous refusal to not allow anyone come in between Radhika and her education. He does not want her to stay at home and do marriage rituals but wants to go and study. If they are really building up caste as an issue here then show Rohan getting married to Champa as a form of poetic justice.
The creatives have no idea of showing intelligence. So their way of showing Maheswari that Radhika is meek is done in this idiotic manner where anybody would be overwhelmed when confronted by an angry mob.
The non-regressive way would have been to show that Maheswari sees this girl from Gurukul singing a song and enquiring about her as she seemed very cultured. Then they could have shown Maheswari observing some confrontation between Mansa and Shanti or Shanti and Radhika where Radhika remains silent as it is her regular way of dealing with Shanti. Mahewari could have misunderstood Radhika's quietness for meekness. In fact that was my take from the promos of Radhika singing that she would be chosen by Maheswari. Otherwise using it as a Kanha's tool of sending Radhika to Mathura was ridiculous.
I am ok with the way child marriage was shown as it was accidental where even Radhika got convinced only after the pandit brainwashed her. Her father is an uneducated man who thinks these pandits are authorities on marriages and stuff and so it was logical for him to believe that. Despite everything, he was concerned about Radhika's dreams of education and made sure that she had a decent childhood. Of course the burning act was reprehensible but after that it was ok for Radhika. He can't force Shanti to treat Radhika nicely and he protects her as much as he can.
But again as Misti has mentioned, it is the PF that is the portrayed as most illogically. Hope they show Chada making Rohan marry her or he doing it willingly to make up for that regressive stuff shown on Friday. Please show that Radhika or Dev make people accept Chanda's marriage to Rohan.
They need to stop this mob mentality and try to show some progressive attitudes. I know caste system is still prevalent in India but even in small cities it is changing and is not exactly the way they show in these serials. Here I am not talking about small villages where the caste system is more rigid.
