Satyamev Jayate

As most of us know, Satyamev Jayate is a popular show that airs every Sunday and is hosted by Aamir Khan. Ever since it has started, I have heard a lot of varied views about it. Some people found the show extremely depressing and disturbing. Some felt it was just an attempt by Aamir Khan to hog limelight and earn crores. Some said it was just another talk show that would be watched and forgotten. Well, I have watched all the episodes of Satyamev Jayate that have aired so far and all I have is respect and admiration for the makers of this show. Each episode throws light upon a social issue, issues that we are aware of but we refuse to ponder upon. I am really impressed with the kind of research that is done to highlight the impact of such issues on our society. Girl foeticide, child abuse, dowry, honour killings, etc are nothing but the brutal reality of our society. Hence, it is very important for us to be aware and alert so that we can prevent ourselves from becoming victims of these social evils. We cannot turn a blind eye to them. Life is not like mushy-mushy and lovey-dovey movies where everything is beautiful and out of this world. We cannot assume that these incidents cannot happen with us and therefore it is extremely important to be wary of our surroundings. I don't understand why people who enjoy watching all the mindless reality shows, turn their faces when they are shown the "real" reality!! For Aamir Khan I would say I have become his bigger fan now. He is a celebrity and he has every right to hog limelight. He is a star and he has every right to earn crores. People do not realize that this guy is using his stardom for a noble cause. There are many celebrities who host/judge reality shows and do all the unnecessary drama to gain high TRPs. And here is Aamir, hosting a sincere show, where facts are not manipulated and hidden truth is unveiled fearlessly. Maybe he is earning crores, but undoubtedly his words have reached and motivated millions of people across our country. Some days back i read an article that said Satyamev Jayate has not managed very high TRPs. But truly, this show is beyond TRPs and according to me, every episode is a win for the makers!! Salutes to Satyamev Jayate, a must watch for all the Indians!!
