At a time when most of â€œusâ€ seem to be swayed away by the western television series, there lies another distinctive group who swear by the Hindi daily series. In fact, compared to the magnanimous amount of people who love their Hindi daily serials, we, who swear by our Game of Thrones and Castle, simply stand nowhere. But donâ€™t you think that those serials are sheer mindless crap and nothing else which propounds patriarchy and imposes a false, and sometimes even utopic, portrayal of the society? Here we have got a few reasons which are well enough to convince the government to ban these serialsâ€”
At a time when people are slowly understanding the worth of being independent, most of these serials end up showing marriage as the sole motive of life. Be it a career oriented guy, or a modern and realistic girl, marriage seems to be their main target. And, funnily enough, sometimes, they even get geared up to marry the person they hate so that they may teach a lesson to their â€œpartnersâ€. Of course, after a few days, this hatred turns into immortal love! After all, the hero and heroine HAVE to fall in love with each other. It happens only in India.
Most of the serials that are on air are mostly about the richer than the richest people around. They own an array of cars, they are always decked up from top to toe even while asleep, and yet, the women spend most of their times either in the kitchen or at the prayer room. Now, how patriarchal can it get? Besides, nowadays, there seem to be only two group of people aroundâ€”the middle class (who never has a penny saved for the future) and the richest (whose patent dialogue is, â€œWhat a middle class mentality!) Grow up, man!
