SATYAMEV JAYATE episode 3 to deal with dowry

Aamir Khan will bring up another burning topic this Sunday, something that unfortunately affects more people than we would believe

Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate has been the talk of the entire country since its debut two weeks ago. The actor shocked everyone – and at the same time made us proud – when he took up topics that are usually not discussed in the public domain and brought them to the fore. He spoke about female foeticide and infanticide in the first episode and about child sexual abuse in the second. Now we hear in the third episode Aamir will discuss the important issue of dowry death. The custom of demanding dowry from a bride’s family when a wedding is fixed has been prevalent in India for several decades. It often takes an evil turn when the bride is tortured or killed just because her family is unable to meet  demands from the in-laws. Even though there are laws in place that have made giving and accepting dowry a criminal act, this social evil continues to flourish.

Aamir has already created an impact with his first two episodes – everyone on social networking sites is talking about it and making it trending topics, government officials are retaliating at being exposed for their failures, social activists are finding help in unexpected quarters, and cynics are accusing the actor of making money out of other people’s woes. What cannot be denied is that in just one-and-a-half-hours per week, he has succeeded in focusing attention on certain social evils which governments, NGOs and even other TV shows have not managed to do. We just wonder what impact his expose of certain home truths about dowry death will have on society… and all of us.

    heard that the thing is very prevalent in the south indian communities..where the amount of dowry proportionally increases with the degree and higher education of the boy and number of overseas degrees..the apparently most educated section of our country seems to be most back dated in this matter..

    • sk

      lets see whether aamirs research limit with in up,maharastra,rajasthan,,,,or extends to south….::)

    • Thomas

      Please do not stand on a pedestal and find fault with south indians. Do you want me to list the oceans of faults the average north indian suffers from. For the north Indian it is merely GRAB AS GRAB CAN – be it a woman, money, power, property, car, space,land, anything at all that gives the north indian whatb he wants, No ethics at all

      • Shreya

        Be it North Indian or South Indian, it is still part of the “custom” to take dowry in an orthodox country like India. I’m quite surprised by the fact that there are so many intellectual people, but sadly they all get carried away by the illusion of money, where they should be the ones to ban this ludicrous system of give and take! Hats off to Aamir Sir for putting his best in this show.

  • RUCHI

    FOR INDIA.

  • sk

    the is not so as expected…it hardly take 4 days to complete 2nd episode(AAmir told it took 2 yrs for 10 episodes)..no brief research in 2nd episode(although in 1st episode some researches were there)…so a big fan of AAmir starts doubting him….so sad

    • dude

      Dude..research was done for two years..what they are doing now is to just present the facts from research..

  • Samudra Bordoloi

    Whatever the reactions from the cynics, how can you deny that our society is being benefitted by the show. Then why not thank Aamir ?

    Aamir Khan,

    Great show and great presentation. I too was a victim of a situation of child abuse and my blood boils when such a thing happens or I come across such incidents.
    I wish I could punish all such criminals who have no right to live on this earth.
    I just hope things will improve after this program telecast.
    All the best and expect to see many more good episodes of Satyameva Jayate.

    Do something for Jharkhand. Here the main problem is maowadi and other this type,s parties. and mainly region of development of these parties is only and only polyticion.agar aap kisi garib place ke liye khuchh karte ho to apko bahut dua milegi aur ek bat waha to bachho ko mara ja raha hai lekin yaha mata aur pita mare ja rahe hai jis karan yaha ke bachhe jite ji mar mar kar rah rahe hai.
