At last something worthwhile!

                                                                                                             Watched the Aamir Khan show,' Satyamev Jayte' on television on Sunday. Must say, it touched my heart . It must have had the same effect on  other viewers as well. Aamir was right in saying,' DIL PE LAGEGI TO BAAT BANEGI.' We were all expecting it to be good and so it was. The fact and figures of the female foeticide are terrifying and depressing.
It is commendable that a celebrity is trying to draw attention of the people, on a national channel of the worst social evils of our society. Everyone should take a note of it and try to root out this particular evil of female foeticide.                                                                                                                                                           It is not that we are not aware of this menace.of our society. The real challenge is to change the mindset of the people. How far these shows are successful in bringing about that change is yet to be seen. Many social activists have been trying to bring positive change in this regard. But the fact remains, when a celebrity speaks, people do listen.
I hope many more meaningful and worthwhile shows are telecast on our T.V. channels. This should be shown in the areas worst affected.
