A hidden agenda?

TV Serials have become very popular in India, though they are, invariably, the same stories repeated or rather old wine in new bottles. The whole drama happens between two diametrically opposite personalities. At the one end, you have an extremely cultured broad-minded person (mostly a woman) who is as embodiment of sacrifices but very talented too. The viewers hold their breath when the hero overcomes one obstacle after the other. At the other end, of course, there is a villain or a vamp who would not let the hero live peacefully. These villains have their henchmen who would carry out any orders from their ‘masters’ to frustrate the good-hearted heroine/hero. I too may be repeating these well-known facts, but that is not the point. It seems some directors or playwrights have a hidden agenda. Most of the villains bear the names of god’s worshipped in India. So are the names of their houses too. What is their motive? Some humour at the expense of a religion?… or a mild insult?… I leave it you.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.

  1. Soaps are certainly not creative outcomes Sir, they are as a result of a certain perversion, which, I’m sure you will agree, is always the underlying theme of every such episode, in the form of manipulation, molestation, ill-will, and a whole lot more!

  2. Usually these serials are good ways to push the NWO agenda down the throats of public

    Materialism, feminism, rebellion, worshipping of female body beauty etc are easily noticeable in these serials

    Atleast I have noticed the following:

    a. Rebellion against elders and well tested and good ways of life, shown as __freedom__

    The hero/heroine rebels against elders and is shown to succeed in his goals. This is shown by showing the person taking up jobs that are usually the vehicles for spreading/encouraging new age agenda (a model, a call center job, an event management job, or choreographer)

    b. A mix of women who dress in both conservative (but mildly revealing and attracting) outfits (sarees with almost all of the back visible etc) and directly modern outfits (jeans for college girls, short skirts etc). Again the concentration is on viewing woman as a tool for sexual satisfaction. Women selected usually act highly emotional, display inner feelilngs openly, talk very clear language (complete words in right accent) and show perverted expressions on their faces

    c. The woman is usually displayed as:

    a. A go-getter who can do anything to achieve her goals (in the position of a villain, but shown as succeeding in her goals in almost all the episodes)
    b. A rebel
    c. If displayed as conservative, such women are shown as being opressed
    d. __good__
    e. __suffering__
    f. Un-approachable
    d. Above law
    e. Staging conspiracies

    d. Men are usually displayed as:

    a. A villain who usually fails to achieve his goals almost through most of the episodes
    b. An old man who is stuck to his way of life or is being trampled by youngsters. A man with a broader outlook who allows female freedom is shown as being encouraged by females around and usually shown as __good__
    c. The failures/mistakes of men are usually highlighted
    d. The __good__ man employs women in his __office__ most of the times and listens to their comments/suggestions with a lot of carefulness, whereas the __bad__ man is usually stuck in a long quarrel against a woman
    e. Old (and young men sometimes) are expected to be __asking__ for suggestions from women; Any instances of the men doing things without asking suggestions or advices from women are usually displayed as causes of failures in business etc
    f. Law is almost always applicable only to men; If it is applied to woman, she is displayed as an innocent victim of it
    g. Men are displayed as being manipulated/controlled by the conspiracies staged against them by women

    They are clearly pushing feminism down the throats of unassuming public
