Influence of TV Serials
Television has become an inseparable part of our life. Especially the daily soap Hindi serials are so much popular; as a result every one of us watches one or other TV serial at least once in a day. It is mostly popular among the housewives not only in India also in Bangladesh as well. Almost 90% of these women desperately wait to watch these serials in between their daily chores These serials are related to our day-to-day lives, presents their happiness and sorrows of simple middle class families and also taught them to deal with the big and little issues of life and present before them a real picture of our lives. But now a days most of the serials are just full of so much craps. Since most of theses serials show the family relationship and also shows the problem of the struggling women but they try to show too much of the real picture which is actually destroying the sentiments and image of the women.
In most of the serials it shows a person to be idealistic in the first place but after some times there is a twist and it changes the whole story by showing the same character is against all the good things. What are these stories trying to tell or prove us; that we should not believe in idealism or the person who thinks about the welfare of everyone always has to suffer? The most hated thing in these serials; they always try to focus on how money, power, and reputation can be earned by choosing the wrong path. The funniest thing they show a person who dies in few serials back returning after sometimes to bring a twist in the story. Is it really possible to return after death life? These are just so funny. The most important thing to mention about these serials is that there are too many advertisements are given in it like the costumes, jewelries, looks of the actor/actress. Even sometimes the looks of the character does not goes the role such as when they are sleeping or cooking they are wearing heavy make up and jewelries.
Well my point here is to talk about if they (serials) are not solving our purpose, what is the reality and significance of these serials. Why can’t they make some sensible stories instead of those unrealistic dramas that will help us to choose a right direction rather than going for the wrong paths?
