dubbed him Indias Oprah Winfreywho gets people to display their lives and troubles on national TVgiving him an opportunity to emote The show comes at a time when many important actorssuch as Amitabh BachchanShah Rukh Khan and Salman Khanhave realised the potential of television It is not that these actors need more publicitybut TV gives them a forum to build a different persona for themselves a persona that is their own and not only that of the many film characters they play Television is attractive because it takes you straight into the viewers home In the case of Aamir Khans showthe topics have been such that even Doordarshan has found it worthwhile to tie up with him There is a social transformation agenda at the heart of the showwhich is creditable India needs transforming especially in the areas that Khan has chosen to bring forth for discussion He is right when he says that we have a rapidly changing societya huge youth population (the demographic dividend that may turn into a demographic disaster if we do not pay it sufficient attention) and people pushing the envelopewhether in the rapid exploitation of resources to make moneyor in demanding personal freedom in families

womans right not to have a conceived baby if she so wishes Yet others may feel that by focusing on the shortage of brides in states like Haryanahe may be placing undue importance on the necessity of marriage or reiterating that women are simply instruments for reproduction and labour And finallymany believe that male patriarchy and its role in influencing decisions is not sufficiently exposed when only women sufferers are brought on the screen Where are the missing male culprits the husbandsthe fathers-in-lawmen indulging in child abuse or NRIs who abandon wives after exploiting them If one were to admit many such lapses in research on complex issues which require both theoretical and ideological stances should one say that the show therefore has no merit and may even be sending out wrong messages In recent visits to Kurukshetra in Haryana and Kangra in Himachal Pradesh to study the issues of imbalanced sex ratios and their impact on societyI was surprised to come acrosswithout any prompting or referencepeople referring repeatedly to Khans show In village Khanpur Kolian in Kurukshetraa group of women struggling against dowrysex-selective abortionsalcoholism and the lack of
