As I switch on my laptop and play this video a stirring question pops up on the screen.
Would you ever cheat on your wife if she never knows about it?
What would he say: YES or NO? A tough call. But after making his mind he answers the question.
And after that he does not know what to do whether he shall smile or grin or remain quiet. Then waits for Rajeev (the host of the show) to say “Aaiye dekhte hai polygraph test kya kahta hai”. And during that time you can see the faces of his family persons who have come a long way to know about their INNOCENT child. If it comes right then again the same situation: a smile (because he is winning the cash) or to keep his head down (because he is losing respect in front of his wife and family). He even does not know that a little mistake can destroy his childhood friendship (case of Vinod Kambli) , can ruin the husband wife relationship, can dilapidate the kinship between son and father. We can do anything for money. We do not care about what can happen tomorrow for this today’s effect. And for this we simply and completely have to rely upon Polygraph machine, which may not be true at all times.
I was recently watching this chat show and this idea of writing ran into my mind. I could not resist myself to share my feelings. I would have posted this a long ago but you know my laziness always halter me to do the right things. My post is bit gloomy, albeit the weather is very idyllic. However this (weather) is the main reason of my today’s post. I did not take a good sleep today but I do not want to sleep as I do not want to miss the opportunity to relish this awesome weather.
Let me tell you that for this a great drama has been enacted by the politicians at the parliament on 30th July to ban the chat show.
They are saying this as “moral policing”, “misuse” of public interest and bla bla bla…BJP member S S Ahluwalia even said that the programme is unethical and completely against Indian culture.
But why blame Television channels? At the starting of every show they mention: Parts of this program may be for mature audiences. Parental guardians are advised. So if you do not like it, better do not watch it. Who forces you to do that?
Today in India corruption is at its height. If you do not agree with that then there are many shows which run on TV and are more life-threatening than this SACH KA SAMNA, literally ruining our youth. “So for few things in life democracy is not the best policy”.
We make movies like Dev D. I do not know where Indian directors are vacillating. They make movies not for the welfare of society but for their own benefit. And now India decriminalizes gay sex and they give the reason as individual freedom. So according to me that day is not far off when incest will become legal. Oh my god in which genre India is advancing. It is like a bill which is always capricious. I do not know whether Dr. kalam’s vision to make India a developed country till 2020 is accomplished or not but it is for sure that till then India would not be the same as it is now.
For supporting my above mention facts you can look up to the poll of Times Of India:
Is reality show is a mirror to what happens to society? : Yes- 34%, No- 65%, Can not say- 1%. (Dated 10/08/09)
And another one:
Is Bollywood moving away from comfort flicks to darker genre? : Yes- 83%, No- 13%, Can not say- 4%.
So by catching these two polls what you can conceive, I think you are worthy enough to decrypt it.
So first we need to iron out the flaws then only we can start a well tomorrow.
P.S. I am too offspring to write about this issue so please do not mind if someone hurts from this.
I shall take a leave now.
