As if television was lacking regressive ideas and here we get a number of more such ideas that showcases various ways to raise the bar and standard of domestic violence through Star Plus’ Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon…Ek Baar Phir. So much for promoting the ‘Nayi Soch’ of the top GEC on television? ‘Love and Hate’ stories are nothing new on television. But with each new show exploring this genre, the ‘hate’ part is slowly drifting towards ‘superstitions’ and ‘cruelty’. Didn’t we have enough stories on this genre already? The mere necessity of showcasing this extreme range of regressive stuff is unacceptable and completely uncalled for.
In the upcoming week of Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon..Ek Baar Phir Aastha (Shrenu Prikh) will be instructed to eat in the same plate in which Shlok (Avinash Sachdev) does. Being the loyal ‘bahu’ of the family, she is expected to follow the family traditions and this being one of the great traditions in the family, Aastha needs to abide by it.
But wait, the trauma doesn’t stop here. We have to stoop down more to watch further regressive stuffs. Aastha is also asked to clean Shlok’s feet in order to perform the ritual of ‘Pati Pujan’. Moreover, she is also forced to drink that water after cleaning his feet considering the water as the holy ‘charanamrut’.
While we are still wondering about why the makers are promoting ‘superstitions’ just to press the button of ‘hatred’ more in the storyline, you can choose whether you want to watch this episode or not.
