‘Satyameva Jayate‘ – Truth alone Prevails : Truly soul stirring show, aired in India. When I watched the first episode of the show, I could feel the strong current of emotions gushing down my veins and leaving my eyes moist. This show deals about various problems like Female foeticide, Child Sexual Abuse etc.
You feel a pang of shock, with each revelation that sometimes comes in the form of a disgusting story, statistics or a video clip that Aamir’s team recorded while doing their research. It’s not that we haven’t read about such incidents before in newspapers and television. We have, but what’s different is that the show succeeds in convincing people of the outcomes of such practices better than a government campaign.
Aamir Khan is the USP of the show. He is able to connect to millions of viewers all over India. It’s a sincere effort that makes people hope and gives people the courage to stand up against the unsocial.
If you have not watched this show, I strongly recommend to everyone.
