Social issues have always been a mainstay of Colors channel's magnum opus Balika Vadhu. Initially, the serial was panned for notching TRPs by exploiting, and thereby propagating, a social evil like child marriage. Writer Purnendu Shekhar says it took a while for people to get the irony of Anandi's situation. "When we started, people said we were glorifying child marriages. They couldn't see the irony that this child had no idea of what is happening to her life. When you go to a doctor, he first diagnoses the disease and then treats it. Similarly, we had to first talk of child marriage and then show what it does. In that sense, regression is the first step to progression."
Four years and 1,000 plus episodes later, the show has kept its word. In Balika Vadhu, every episode ends with a slogan summarising the theme (Shekhar's father Meghraj Shrimali writes the slogans). "Initially, people used to say this makes the show preachy. But if you are being entertained through the episode, at least at the end of it, something should make you think. If we are taking a stand, we have to remind people about it again and again," says Shekhar. Interestingly, when Shekhar wrote the original story in 1992, there was no divorce in the plot. The thought came as they shot the show, "the realisation camethat kachchi umar ke pakke rishte sahi nahin ho sakte… Anandi Jagiya ke saath nahin ho sakti (Relationships forged so early can't last. Anandi and Jagiya can't stay together)," he says.
