I know Indian TV serials have illogical and unbelievable stories. I never watch them. In our home, we have Tamil Sun TV only. This is for the benefit of my wife. She watches a few serials.
My wife briefs me once in a while what is happening in those few serials she watches. Here is one story in a serial that is beyond unbelievable.
There is a girl. She gets married and lives with her husband and his parents. They (all 3) ill treat her. They ask her to go back to her parent’s home permanently. She refuses. Why she refuses? Here is her reason:
Her uncle thinks she is happily married. She does not want to disappoint him. Therefore, she will stay in the in-law’s home and willing to suffer.
Now, the husband and his parents are taking advantage of this. They tell her that she will be treated as a household servant in their home. She agrees. She should address them Amma and Ayya (Tamil words for a servant to address the masters). She agrees. Husband should be addressed as “Sir”. She agrees
They find a second wife for the son and the son marries the new girl. The second wife treats the first wife even more harshly. The son and his parents enjoy this.
The son and the second wife goes to the bedroom every night and the first wife sleeps in the hall, on the floor.
Why the first wife willingly goes through this? She does not want to disappoint her uncle who thinks she has a happy married life. This is happening in 2013? Give me a break.
If you can think of any more bizarre incidents that can be added to this story, please let me know. I will forward them to that serial’s director.
Seriously, come to think of it, I enjoy the story for pure fun. I won’t watch the serial. My wife’s weekly synopsis is enough.
