I never had a problem with Arjun-Purvi marriage, but there is no way I can support their wedding given  the situation. I understand Arvi is a popular couple with lots of fans and the couple have really good chemistry. Their romance makes TRPs go off the top. But if the CVs had all along planned to unite the couple they should have never showed Arjun-Ovi marriage, Ovi pregnant and having a still born. I don't think any parents would happily get their daughter married to their other daughter's ex husband whatever the history is. The most sickening is the fact that both sisters were pregnant with the same guys child. And the sister whose child survived got the man at the end and the family whole heartedly supported them. With high TRPs I believe Indian audience not only accepted the storyline, they are enjoying every bit of it and would probably do the same within their families. I am not Indian and I got to know about Indian culture only through movies and serials. If Pavitra Rishta is what Indian Culture is
about then I am very happy that I was not raised with Indian cultural values.

Why are you even relating a serial with Indian cultural values?

It's fiction, remember!?! I just don't get it why people start relating real life with a fiction based show LOL

See I'm not being rude but your last line is going to be taken as an offence. I'm born and brought up in India and its rich culture. Sorry but not hearing a word against my country and its values taught to me.

Wow before generalizing about Indian Culture remember this is FICTION and a SOAP made by EKTA KAPOOR.
People watch these shows for entertainment not to get values and learn about other cultures generally.
The type of situations shown in soaps are unrealistic and would most likely never happen in real life whether your indian or not.
Fiction serials do not define a culture. I'm very proud to be an Indian.

Hi serialcraze, I understand what you're saying about what the show is saying.

However, I think you're being unfair to the Indian culture and people by generalizing them completely due to ONE show.

I am not a fan of a lot of what has happened on the show and I do share many of your opinions (about the show only, of course).

However, let's just leave this serial to be what it merely is...a TV serial. India is a diverse country, filled with culture, traditions, so many different types of people. I am not Indian but I am definitely not going to use this show to learn about and form an opinion about the Indian culture.

TV shows, movies, other types of entertainment are not accurate ways to learn about a culture. They are just entertainment.

Yes, completely agree with you.

@ bold, could be construed as offensive. 
 
Please remember this is just aTV show. It is like saying daily soaps such as Dallas and The Young & the Restless reflected society in the US or even sitcoms like Friends or How I Met Your Mother or The Office is how life is carried on here.  While we enjoy The Office, I am sure most of us work in organizations that will not tolerate anything remotely akin to the lackadaisical work ethics of that show. 

So please a friendly request to not equate Indian culture and values with what is shown on this time pass show.
