Satyamev Jayate 3rd Rendition-Marriage or Marketplace !

After hard-hitting and eye-popping episodes, the 3rd rendition of Aamir’s “Satyamev Jayate: Truth Alone Prevails” Series was the about the crude and evil practice of “Dowry” which has become the inevitable truth of the Indian Society.

 

Ofttimes, it has been making news that women are burnt, beaten up, thrown out of houses, tortured, blackmailed and put to test in every aspect just in order to get dowry out of them and their families. Women are conceded just to be no less than a commodity which is sold off and bought off in order to get rid of her.

 

Aamir opened the episode on a light note and started by asking the audience what sort of marriage do they look forward to. Many veritable as well as wild responses were registered from the audience comprising of youths nearing their marriage age and some already eligible; like big fat Indian wedding to coming in a Helicopter to pick their bride.

The show strung serious note with the tormenting stories of Paramjeet and Komal. Paramjeet married off by her parents to a well-sought after guy whose ever-increasing demands and greed for money has no ends. Tortured by her in-laws,Paramjeet bore all the pains and sufferings and her parents kept on shoving money up her in-laws’ mouth, just to wait for a day when the guy demands divorce on Internet. On the other hand is Komal’s heart-touching tale, of being left succumbing to her hunger and underweight issues in US by her husband with a miser bent of mind even after earning $65,000 a year.Komal endured all the distress and discomfort with an implanted thought in her mind by her mother that no matter whatever happens, never return home after a fight or because of a certain issue she disliked or had differences with her husband. Komal was left in a house with not even basic facilities like food and water by her tight-wad and
pitiless husband who loved nothing but money.

She knocked the doors of Woman Shelter in London who were all set to help her out even after knowing that she was penniless.Her parents had given away around Rs.60-70 lakhs worth jewelry to her in-laws leaving aside the cash, and still Komal’s groom was dissatisfied.

 

Cases of suicide, attempt to murder, domestic violence,setting the bride to flames, mentally as well as physically torturing the girl for dowry, etc all have been reported not in the recent past but these problems have roots in the historic past even before democracy was achieved by our nation.

 

Aamir spoke to several victims,and Balwant Singh Ramoowalia, President of the Lok Bhalai Party in Punjab, with whom Aamir conversed via 3G video conferencing, revealed that around 30,000 women in his state are languishing at their in-laws, being forced to do labour because their parents were too poor to meet the dowry demands of their in-laws.

 

Again the show took a comical bend with the strange tale shared by Santosh who was kidnapped by the bride’s parents so that they could marry their daughter off with paying dowry, This was termed as “‘pakadwa vivah” and Santosh is now living happily along with Ruby, who takes good care of his family.

 

The strong-willed, Rani Tripathi and her narrative about how she refused her in-laws the dowry they were demanding along with an extra-step forward conducted a sting operation bringing to the people’s eyes by means of media the real faces who 

were yelling and demanding car,Rs.5 lakhs cash, renovation etc is truly inspiring and shows the women power in her. Her brother had left an open invitation that if anyone was interested in marrying off his sister without dowry can step forward and marry her on the set wedding date. And hence stepped in Rani’s dream man, Pawan Tripathi who fell in love with her eyes and proposed marriage after sending in an application on seeing her on television.

 

Tanzeem Khuddam-E-Millat that believes in “No band, no baaja, no baraat” and stands by the thought that marriages should be simple and had started this community along with Indian Independence in Burhanpur, and the founder claims that it is their record till date that no women there has been troubled for dowry. Same trend is followed in Bhiwandi, Maharashtra.

 

People from the North-Eastern states and part of the audience spoke of how simple their marriages are and how sober they keep it without any pomp and show, and their culture is free from such vices.An Assamese,Durlov Baruah, remarked “Being a man, I prefer death to accepting dowry.”

 

As usual the show ended on a musical note, composed by Ram Sampath and powerful voicing by Sona Mahapatra “Mujhe Kya Bechega Rupaiyya” shunning the world of dowry and singing free from its shackles.

Throughout the show the tweets that kept of appearing on twitter are:

Aamir while bidding adieu made a humble request to parents; that they should invest the money in educating their daughters rather than giving away their savings to greedy dogs whose ever-increasing demands have no end ; to men that are they incapable of earning their own living and feeding themselves twice a day with their own earning that they have to spread arms in front of their wives; and to women that they should gather courage and say no to dowry and abstain people who accept dowry.

  1. It is correct that dowry system is prevalent in India. But millions of People in India are against dowry system and do not accept dowry in cash or kind. But women organisations are making so much hue and cry, so that gender bias laws in favour of women remain in tact . Due to these gender bias laws,judiciary system and police network extort heavy amount from husband family as bribe.I personally know several cases in my circle, where hardly anything was taken as dowry , but ladies claimed huge compensation and demanding property on the pretext of dowry act . Section 498A & DV act are gender bias laws in India,in favour of women, wherein any women can file complaint of demand of dowry and harassment,leading to arrest of any no. of persons and even against animal. Offence is non bailable.Mere on one complaint of estranged lady, 10-12 persons of husband family members are arrested and put behind bar. It is Hercules task to get bail.90% fail to get bail and remain in jail,even if they are innocent.If someone get bail, he/she remain so much depressed, die before finalisation of case.Circumstances leading to complaints are as under.
    a) Brcomment_IDe having affair with someone and do not want to live with husband.She want divorce after getting heavy compensation from husband.
    b) Greedy parents of girl want to marry her and then extort heavy amount /property as ransom.They spent 1 Lac and then demand 1 Crore.Law enforcing agencies demand lacs to arrange bail for each person of husband family. After every divorce, they will plan to trap someone else.
    c) Parents of girl do not groom their daughters and girls do not habit to work as house wife. Their expectations are very high. Girls expect every thing. Smart and good physique husband, high income group,big house, big car etc and no other member in family.Parents , who have great expectations and aspirations of peaceful married life of their son, are shown door by their daughter in law.
    d) Girls do not want anyone to point out/tick.They prefer to remain separate from inlaws, so that they can live life, meet/mix with any one, even may call her old boy friend, when her husband goes on duty.
    e)Financial status of girl & her boy friend is low and want to become rich over night.They plan to trap rich boy to marry. They will make hue & cry during the marriage or immediately after marriage, to file case of dowry or DV act,put all members of husband family in jail. Then they demand huge sum and property and compensation to become rich over night and then marry with boy friend . Majority of innocents& emotional fools are trapped and loose finances,property and mental peace.
    Supreme court have noticed that 98% of cases under Section 498A & DV act are false and fabricated . If you track above cases presented in Satyamevjayte , you will find out that majority are false,fabricated & nothing but a drama.
