Exactly 29 years ago, In 1984 Doordarshan, then the only television channel In India, began airing the soap opera Hum Log. Woven into its lengthy narrative were various threads of women's empowerment. The show attacked the dowry system, encouraged women to get educated, decide for themselves how many children they would have, and promoted gender equality in the workplace.Basesar Ram and his family entered Indian drawing rooms and became part of every home with a television set.Badki, Chhutki, Dadi, Nanhe and every other character of Doordarshan's first soap, 'Hum Log', continue to be remembered fondly.
The Show Cross The Barrier Of Society & Came Up With New message, The sanctioning of the notion of women as autonomous and equal citizens, while also endorsing the idea that women are around to be gazed at, is the contradiction that has lessened our potential since the days of Hum Log, and the many other shows that followed. Even a strong and well-made serial likeSaas, Udaan, In The Year 1990-91 which tells the story of a woman aspiring to be an Indian Police Service officer, could not make a long-term impact on viewers. Nothing has changed for the better. In some ways, television has fostered the spread of the liberation movement through its vast amount of coverage of women through seemingly 'progressive' talk shows, discussions, debate and detailed news reports. At the same time, television has done more harm than good to women's potential as individuals by putting female conformity to convention and tradition at the forefront.
In Year 2000 Then With the arrival of Ekta Kapoor, the story lines changed dramatically. Her serials hit the bull's eye. She revolutionized television with Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, and Kasautii Zindagi Kay, shows spinning around one female protagonist, and which continue with their never-ending stories. As viewers flocked to her serials, others started toeing the line to keep abreast. This flood of essentially similar shows turned off a lot of viewers, and a large segment of urban Indian women now find these serials regressive.
