I'm posting here the original letter written to the CVs when SNS was just four months old. The letter, though written in October, is still relevant, it only requires a few changes to bring it up-to-date. Do give your suggestions for making the said changes.
Dear CVs,


In our attempt to get you to understand your fans, we submit to you the following wish list:


1.  Develop the Modi Family into a real, honest to goodness family.  Let their interactions be real and not so very esoteric.  The parents should be a good example of what a good marriage is like for the young marrieds.  Let Koki respect Parag as she should.  They are adults!  Let them communicate with each other!   No one in this family laughs, or has a heart felt smile.  Let the young couples interact outside of the home and build relationships!  There is not a scene shown when one person isn't in fear of some kind!  Or sad, or crying.  None of the relationships share any kind of chemistry.  Not the older couples, not the younger couples, not the siblings, not the parents for their children.  Plain and simple, there is no love in this home!  Every family has their moments.  Every family endures hardship.  But love is what holds it all together. We fully expect this family to fall apart before our eyes due to lack of love.  Is this the image you want?


2.  Remember that Aham/Gopi and Jigar Rashi are the leads of the show.  While the other characters are somewhat necessary, don't focus on them.  We were lead to believe this was a show about the dreams of two young women who are newly married.  If this is true, why are we constantly show everything and everyone BUT them?  Why, after all of this time, has Aham not had a real conversation with his wife?  Jigar is not much better with Rashi.   Why is there no time spent in developing these vital relationships?  We don't care about Umang, Kinjal & and Dhawal.  In fact, they annoy us and we wish they would just go away.


3.  Continuity Various tracks are started but then forgotten conveniently. For example:

Why did Gopi rub the cream on one side of Koki's face only to have the other side react?

Why was the sheera, hidden under vegetables by Rashi, never discovered?
Kinjal's letter to Gopi which she couldn't read was abandoned.Why did Aham let it go, just because she was illiterate, but if he didn't write it then who did?
The necklace from Ahem which Gopi didn't order so then who did? And with the necklace was a card from Ahem to my lovely wife Gopi. Again forgotten after all the drama.
Jigar knew Rashi was not in the house the night of the disappearing sandook, then he discovered her outside and he was suspicious of her explanations. What's happened with that? He's acting like everything is normal between them.
Aham won a contract in Switzerland for a catering service (and they are into what business construction), so who is going to head the catering business? Why did he insist on his Mom accompanying him to Switzerland? Is she going to head that business or what?
When Ahem had taken a Swiss local sim card, then how come he got a Rs 80,000 bill? Also, such sim cards are usually active for a short duration & are pre-paid, then how come Ahem got a bill?
4.  Please spend more time on making the characters consistent!  Koki is a ticking time bomb, Aham can't make up his mind whether to be mean to Gopi or not, and Gopi acts like an idiot most of the time, when we know she's not.  


Regarding Gopi, we know she is not educated, but that doesn't mean she's not smart.  Why do you continue to portray her as a two year old who knows nothing?  Why in the world would she wash Aham's computer?  Gopi is not stupid.  She wouldn't wash a toaster, or a TV.  Why then would she think it would be okay to wash a laptop?  Gopi's character is no doubt naive.  She helps everyone with the best of intentions, and doesn't want to see anyone in trouble.  This behavior earns her nothing but scoldings and tears.  So apparently, nice, decent people are to be looked down upon, right?


With regards to the Modi men, are they so castrated that they can't have an opinion?  Chirag and Parag are an affront to men everywhere!  What man would sit by and watch Koki destroy a young girl without saying anything?  You had a great opportunity for Parag to step up and be a father to Gopi and you let it slip through your fingers.  Aham's cruelty to Gopi is unpardonable.  Jigar just smiles and nods like he's not quite all there in the head.


Hetal is another matter entirely.  Can you say wishy- washy?    Kinjal - We know you think she is important to the story, but frankly, we don't care about her.  She's evil.  What kind of daughter purposely plans to harm her mother?  Is this really what you want to portray?  That this kind of behavior is okay?  Because so far, she's gotten away with everything.  Rashi is everything that is wrong with her generation.  Spoiled, pampered, vain, deceitful.  And yet, she seems to get away with everything.  Nice life lesson.  Bravo.


5.  Romance/Passion.   So far, zilch, nada, none.  We're not looking for ripped bodices and passionate kisses.  But can't the leads at least be civil to each other?  When offering ointment to your wife is the most passionate thing we've seen on the show, it's kindof a letdown.  At this point, I'd be happy if Aham could be in the same room with his wife without scowling or yelling.  No eye-lock required. Can't he even have a decent conversation with her?  They've been married for how long?  


6.  Social Responsibility As long as you continue to portray Gopi as you are, there is little hope for the young women who are actually in her situation.  When a young bride has no worth in her family, and that devaluation is consistently shown, what message are you portraying? Good is portrayed as stupid and uneducated and evil has no consequences.


7.  Redundancy.  We keep going around in a big circle.  Nothing has changed.  Kinjal still hates Gopi, so does Aham and Rashi.  Rashi and Urmila are still plotting evil.  Gopi gets yelled at on a daily basis.  Koki is reputed to be a good MIL.  Parag and Chirag are cardboard cutouts.  Hetal can do little more than smile.  These things we know.  You have pounded them into our heads for the last oh, one year.  We get it.  Now move the story along!  Show us something different. 


Please do not treat your viewers like you treat Gopi, i.e. assuming we are stupid.  By turning over such bad quality scripting and episodes, the implication is that you think that as TV viewers, we will swallow bad writing, illogical sequences and unrealistic characters and situations.  Please understand that whilst we watch your show, we are not asking to be treated with the contempt you presently seem to be exposing us on the basis above.

Hi Rana,

Under Continuity, please write more loose ends.
  • Sheera that disappeared (Rashi took it and hid it on the food trolley under the vegetables from the boxes to be given at the pooja to guests) I would have liked Gopi and Mani to discover it later and dealt with it either by informing Kokila and an investigation to happen (I know more Rasode politics but it wasn't good to leave that loose end). 
  • The Kinjal letter to Gopi that Gopi couldn't read, that should have come up again, why did Aham let it go just because she was illiterate, he didn't write it who did.
  • The necklace, she didn't order it who did, and on that necklace there was a card from Aham to my lovely wife Gopi, that should also have been produced.
  • Jigar so Rashi was not in the house and was outside the night of the sandook disappearing, and he was suspicious with her explanation, so what's happening with that his acting like everything is normal between them.
  • Aham won a contract in Switzerland for a catering services and they are into what business construction, who is going to head the catering business. Why did he insist on his Mom to go to Switzerland is she going to lead on that business or what.
I want future episodes to lead on nicely from past episodes and not leave so many loose ends.

If others can think of more to write under continuity of the story, it will be good to bolster that part of the letter.

Yes, Simran the story has become quite stale & characters need to be developed further.
