Cheers to TV moms

Amrita Mulchandani, TNN | May 8, 2011, 12.00am IST

Change is the order of the day. Even on television. 

While prime time dailies might have graduated from saas-bahu tearjerkers in urban setups to stories about small town and rural India, but our telly moms too have evolved over the years. The docile and timid figure whose responsibility ended after she had dished out yummy delicacies and who had no qualms about staying in the periphery without interfering in family matters has been replaced by a strong, independent spirited woman who balances home and work place responsibilities comfortably. Today's small screen moms are vibrant, vocal and equal partners. Here's a quick look at some women who've made an impact in their screen mom role play. 

Usha Nadkarni (Savita Deshmukh in Pavitra Rishta) 
Outspoken and brutally honest, Savita might have an in-your face personality, but she's the earth mother. Nothing matters more to her than her family and her children. She might want the good life and enjoy the little skirmishes with her daughter-in-law Archana, but Savita is also someone who's helpful and warm. Usha admits that playing such a character was something of a "challenge. As a woman I believe in the equality of sexes and find it amazing how some women have managed to maintain a perfect balance between their personal and professional lives. I think everyone needs to salute such women not just today, but everyday of our lives." 

Even as moms graduate from making aloo paranthas and kheer and become stronger people, one thing hasn't changed about them — their deep-rooted love for their children. Love them, hate them, but you can't ignore telly moms who straddle tradition and modernity and create their distinct places in our hearts every night.
