One of the best shows on TV right now that I can think of is Satyamev Jayate. It means victory in truth. It's about the social evils in India but it's relevant to many societies and hosted by actor Aamir Khan. It's in Hindi/Urdu but mostly Hindi and some English. When it comes on Star World, it has English subtitles. So far I've only seen 2 episodes. One was about the craze behind having male children in India and the extent people go to kill or abort females and the affect on current and future generations. One of the affects of lack of women in certain parts of India is leading to women being bought and sold from one part of India to another. And they lose their basic human rights by being distributed around one household between men. The current episode I'm watching deals with child sexual abuse. In a study conducted in India, 53% of children have been sexually assaulted or abused to some degree. And 53% of children exposed to this tragedy are boys. Many children are unable to talk about it with their parents. And often the attackers are well known and trusted by the family. Some of these stories are really difficult to hear but the fact that it's so common makes it important for us to be aware of. Have you seen this show?
