Cheers to TV moms

Amrita Mulchandani, TNN | May 8, 2011, 12.00am IST

Change is the order of the day. Even on television. 

While prime time dailies might have graduated from saas-bahu tearjerkers in urban setups to stories about small town and rural India, but our telly moms too have evolved over the years. The docile and timid figure whose responsibility ended after she had dished out yummy delicacies and who had no qualms about staying in the periphery without interfering in family matters has been replaced by a strong, independent spirited woman who balances home and work place responsibilities comfortably. Today's small screen moms are vibrant, vocal and equal partners. Here's a quick look at some women who've made an impact in their screen mom role play. 

Indira Krishnan (Krishnaben in Krishnaben Khakhrawala) 
An independent Gujarati housewife who carves out her identity and rules her family and work place with an iron hand, she's also a godfearing, loving mom who will go to any lengths to ensure her children's wellbeing without compromising her ideals. "It feels fantastic to play such a realistic character. Today 60 per cent moms are independent. In real life I am a lot like Krishna. I am a positive person and maintain the work life balance," says Indira. 

Even as moms graduate from making aloo paranthas and kheer and become stronger people, one thing hasn't changed about them — their deep-rooted love for their children. Love them, hate them, but you can't ignore telly moms who straddle tradition and modernity and create their distinct places in our hearts every night.
