Satyamev Jayate - Victory In Truth show

Recommended Posts

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?

Welcome. :)

 

I think one of the most shocking things I heard in today's episode was this Dr. who went to prison to find out the attackers' psychology and mental process during the attacks. He said they have no sense of guilt or that they did something wrong. And they think the children enjoyed the assault. The other shocking thing was that there are no well defined laws against child molestation and rape in India and the double victimisation of the children by the lawyers, doctors, etc. I really hope these episodes bring about a change in Indian society.

He is Muslim but that's irrelevant to what he's doing and the initiative he's taken.

omg this show is making me cry.

even though i know this stuff happens.

 

Yeah both episodes are tear jerkers which is why it's a good show. Unless people feel the anguish they wont do anything about it.

 

Positive effects of the first episode so far:

Shinde has written to the municipal commissioner Mahesh Pathak demanding an explanation as to why the cell was dissolved.

The cell, formed as per the instructions of the state government on

June 1, 2011, was responsible for makings visits to sonography centres, checking registrations and licences, conducting sting operations to check sex determination tests and submitting reports to the government.

The civic body’s PCPNDT cell had a team of four doctors for monitoring the effective implementation of the Act. The cell was dissolved in January this year and zonal medical officers were given the responsibility to see that the Act is not violated.

“The zonal medical officers already have 22 other jobs on their list. How will they be able to manage this additional responsibility? Keeping a check on sonography centres in the city is an important task.

The telephone in the office of Ahmednagar-based NGO Snehalaya has been ringing incessantly since last week.

Its website crashed for two days due to increased number of visitors and to top it all, it has received a donation of Rs 64 lakh within a week to carry forward its work against female foeticide. All this happened as Aamir Khan had appealed people to raise funds in his television show Satyamev Jayate.

Jaipur: The entire government machinery on Wednesday tried to show that it has gone on an overdrive to curb the menace of female foeticide by taking brisk action against health care centres and officials who have been involved in illegal sex selection in the state. Meetings were held, show cause notices were issued to 23 centres and even licences were suspended of 5 sonography centres.

 

On Wednesday, show cause notices were issued to 23 health care centres in the state for alleged violation of the (PCPNDT) Pre conception and Pre Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Prohibition of Sex selection) Act.

 

Interestingly, action against all these hospitals, sonography centres and officials have been pending for years.

While Khan himself met Rajastan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to petition his government to act against the social menace, the Madhya Pradesh government on Wednesday terminated the license of 65 Medical Termination of Pregnancy centres in order to check the Sex Determination Test (SDT).

Meanwhile, journalist and economist Rupa Subramanya, in an article published on the Wall Street Journal website, argued that contrary to popular beliefs about Islam being anti-women, the sex ratio among Muslims is better than any other religious group in the country. Subramanya writes: "An interesting twist to the sex selection saga is that India’s Muslims have close to normal sex ratios, not nearly as skewed as the population at large or upper-caste Hindus in particular. According to the most recent data that's been analyzed from the 2001 census, the sex ratio among Hindus, who account for almost four-fifths of the population, was 931. The comparable ratio for Muslims, who make up less than 15% of the population, was 936."

A difference of five girls per 1000 boys may not come across as the most convincing piece of data to prove Muslims treat their daughters well, but if we take into consideration other factors that constitute the census, we see a general pattern of the gender divide and discrimination being less prominent among India's Muslims than the other religious groups. "There’s persuasive statistical evidence that the difference of five girls in 1,000 boys isn’t a fluke or an anomaly. This is interpreted as evidence as Muslim culture or values work to lessen the impact of son preference compared to the majority Hindu community," says Subramanya in her piece.
