Satyamev Jayate: Only truth shall prevails
The first episode of this new show brought to you by Aamir Khan and his media production strives to fight against Female Foeticide in South Asian communities. The show exposes the evil practice of female foetecide in the form of forced abortion.
Myth 1. It is usually uneducated/ poor people who commit female foeticide. False.
Myth 2. It is usually people from rural/ more religious communities who commit female foeticide. False.
Myth 3. Doctors and health workers are often found encouraging female foeticide (forced abortion) instead of objecting to perform it. Fact.
Myth 4. Doctors and people caught involved in forced abortions are punished legally or socially. False.
Myth 5. Female foeticide is now a growing industry. Fact.
Myth 6. Female foeticide is derived from, and supported by religions such as Hinduism and Islam. False.
So much courage. Salute to all these brave mothers.
“Humne tujhpe hazaaro sitham hai kiye, Humne tujhpe jahaa bhar ke zulm kiye, Humne socha nahi, Tu jo udh jaayegi, Ye zameen tere bin sooni reh jaayegi, Kiske dum pe sajega mera angana…Ooore chiraiya ,Nannishe cidiya, Anganame feer aaza”
“We put you through misery, we treated you unfairly, we did not think that when you would fly away, this land would go dry, my garden would lose its source of joy…Oh birdie, little birdie, come back to our yard.” (I am sorry for the very rough translation but this song is too gorgeous to not share).
Currently, there are no subtitles to the show.
