CV's are just showing South because this is being aired in the southern states also.
Which is why they should not show Southern stories- because they are showing it all wrong.
Maybe for viewers in North India it does not matter who Kartikeya romanced with- but it matters a lot for us. Because the Murugan- Valli romance is splattered all across Tamil Literature.
Imagine if a serial showed Krishna wooing and cooing with Satyabhama on the banks of Yamuna. Your insides squirm isn't it? Your mental picture gets deranged, right ? Because we have been used to equating Krishna, flute, Yamuna with Radha- not Rukmini or Satyabahama. That is the kind of mental derangement we Tamilians are facing.
I think the CVs have merely heard these names - Meenakshi, Devasena -and have not bothered to read their full stories.
And jayvenk- I have come to the happy conclusion that this Kartikeya too is another fictional character like the Meenakshi they are portraying. Just like the Meenakshi in the serial is not he goddess (despite having Malayadhwaja for a father), similarly Kartikeya too is not the God we worship. He is simple another figment of the CV"s extremely fertile imagination.
