I love Hindi Serials.
I love the way they elongate “Nahinnnnnnn” longer than the time duration the accident would have taken to occur.I love how the protagonist reacts to a mere incident of power-cut,giving the expression of shock,not once but thrice,with such loud music in the background,that we almost fear she saw a ghost.Here are the life lessons Hindi serials have taught me and given me such sanskaar which even my parents couldn’t deliver.
It doesnt matter whether its a funeral or some severe mourning scene in a hospital,the GHAR KI BAHU( bride of the house) will be wearing 24 carat thick gold necklaces and heavy saree with kantha embroidery.One doesn’t simply be a bahu and not wear atleast 5 gold ornaments to bed.
2.DESTINY TESTS TRUE LOVE
The college lover of your husband who had gone back to NYC 20 years ago,and had ditched your husband for unknown reasons,will come back 20 years later only to get her love back,and your marriage will be put to “agni pareeksha” with lots of tabla beats in the background.
3.THE INFIDELITY OF INDIAN MEN
Your husband will definitely have a secret love child,which will be revealed at a later stage in life when your kid and that love child will end up co-incidental being classmates.
4.THAT RNA INTERFERENCE IS NOT NEEDED TO STOP AGING
No matter how old your kids grow up,and how old their kids grow up,you will still look the same like you did when you first got married,only with 2 or 3 grey hair in the front of your head.
5.CONCEPTS OF REBIRTH
You shouldn’t worry if you lost your husband,in some days he will come back taking a “punar janam”(re-birth).And this time with louder tabla beats playing in the background.
6.MEMORY LOSS CAN BE CURED BY TRUE LOVE
If you love some one too much,in the right time he will lose his memory and wont give you a damn.But if you keep “VISHWAAS IN SACCHA PYAAR”(faith in true love),the whole universe will conspire,and his memory will return.But till then you would already be having another man in your life.More test of true love…to be continued 😐
7.HOW TO BE IMMORTAL
That if you want to be immortal,you have to compulsorily be in the position of BAA of the family.
Oops,sorry. That post is permanently occupied.
8.THAT YOU CAN CHECK IF YOUR “DEVRAANI” IS EVIL
The villain will always make faces and smirk like a bitch while thinking of an evil plan,so that you know she is a villian.But the irony is,you still wont know,cause you are too “adarsh”(ideal) to think of anything so evil about your “APNEY”(own).
So many lessons.So little time before the diya extinguishes.
