The second episode of sathyameva Jayate has been aired, so far so good.
The media and blogsworld has gone frenzy with it,
There have been people who have been silently working in the very same area people have seen things happen in around and around them, it was easy to ignore a single soldier, but when Aamir wanted a sure fire hit he gets one, suddenly people realize that these issues are around!
Good for the cause,
I wonder what the fall out be, right now it media speculation and coffee table debate, the focus has remained Aamir Khan and the issue, what happens from now.
When Mr.Khan tackled female foeticide I see an unanimous response, of young netizen’s they pass the buck on to the culture, and point fingers at the dowry system. Yet the girls wait for their parents to find the right match, from their clan and preferably backyard, the boys still talk of dowry.
When we talk of the bride being bought we raise eyebrows, but dowry is buying your groom, think about it. There have instances in Bihar where educated boys were kidnapped and forcefully married.
We are so pseudo-shocked that the doctors do this, but have filed an FIR against the doctor who has done this? Have we informed the IMA yes, I do agree IMA and police have got corrupted, but many times just a legal letter scares people.
Lets assume the bill gets passed do know that there will equal number of cases of victimization of the doctors, and parents-in-law this has happened in dowry harassment cases, I can cite at least three to four such marriages, where the girls have filed false cases and got away with it.
its not the law that will make the difference it us the people. There is a whole gamut of things that work here.
- Choosing to marry a person of your choice is taking the risk at your responsibility.
- The person could say no.
- You could have post marriage problems, this can happen even in arranged marriages but then we can conveniently point the finger at our parents, there are dollops of sympathy oozed on you and you come out smelling of roses,
The reaction of Taslima Nasreen the Bangladeshi writer was the most idiotic, people are working on all the issue’s that will be dealt. And think of Aamir Khan as your publicist.
