Agree, main reason why I try to avoid indian shows/movies as much as I can.

There''s nothing empowering to women.. it''s all like these shows where girls just married off at the age of 22 and withhold no life of her own.. They just cook/clean for their husbands.. like wow, is this the 40''s?

Nice Article...The old BMTD give all of the audience a message about illiteracy &Education. And, that is the only reason Ariana Television in Afghanistan dubbed it in Persian/Dari. Also, in terms of Education Afghanistan has a lot of girls that are illiterate and BMTD helped to give out the message about educating every child in those kind of countries. But now the show is just boring and meaningless.

bmtd is giving the wrong message, but Balika Vadhu,Bidaai,Uttaran give good messages in an entertaining manner without boringly preaching. Even Shree is quite entertaining to different from other shows it has drama,romance n horror factor which makes it a good watch n that''s what we want. So instead of criticizing lets applaud their efforts n all the shows u mentioned have really high TRPS so they''ve already won the audience hearts

excellent articleI am very glad that someone has pointed out these very facts and how they are shown in the serials. I do think we have swayed from what the mass communication can achieve. Yes, all these serials portray the ills that exist in our society and yes they should very well do that, but they should also show how we can overcome these ills. that is what is lacking! we do know that caste, color and rich and poor differences exist. we also need to know a path/solution on how we can move above these.

Simply creating a character and having all the family support her is very idealistic and frankly unrealistic!
Moreover, i think what the article missed was the concept of husband-wife relationships shown in each serial. recently, in banu main teri dulhan, the serial''s protagonist is okay with a marriage and is encouraging her husband to have a bond with the other female that he married as an act of protection. How is this in any aspect a representation of strength, courage and a woman''s self confidence or let alone a representation of Indian/hindu culture?

I definitely agree with the last section - Women liberation. I don''t really see too many female professionals, and the few that are shown are usually shown in negative light.

Well then it shows that sharing ur sisters husband is ok. TB Kajol was after Payal''s husband n in KS Pia well every1 knows she did get him 4 a night. As for the women thin, some new show on sony that my dad watches has strong girls, but then there r some that do show that.

No I dis-agree with the article. Uttaran is not jus encouraging any sort of TRPs shows the truth of the darker side of India , thru the story of the girl Icchha..even if its encourages the does it matter when we get to see & learn the desires of such ppl..orelse.. who will even turn an eye for such ppl in this busy world? In that way Uttaran is doing a fantastic job so there is nothing to fault in it or in what they show.
