2. They are promoting progressive values.
3. Indian TV soaps increase enrollment of little girls in schools.
4. They lead to more women considering domestic violence as unacceptable.
5. Rural and semi-urban women who watch TV soaps are more likelier to make their own decisions than be subservient.
6. You must read Prof. Emily Oster’s research here http://www.chicagobooth.edu/capideas/apr 09/3.aspx

But what I feel is that people watch them just for entertainment. Nobody is learning anything from it and its definitely not creating any positive or negative effect in the society.People following western culture will continue be the same and will never try to be some heavy duty saree clad idealistic daughter in law. If such serials are creating regression then why don’t mythological serials create idealism?

The men too are very weak and love to let their mothers rule them and to break down in tears at the slightest difficulty. Why is it that every Indian’s ambition just seems to be how they can take over the family house by tricking the owner into signing some fraudulent deed. Is that really how absurd life in India really is? And to think you export these sort of shows to America and other developed countries where the citizenry of those countries will only be laughing at Indians as if they’re the greatest fools.

Indiansoap operas these days, are all about saree-sindur-mangalsutra-clad decent bahus and their equally over-dressed mother-in-laws! Can someone give “K” serials a pause??

Balaji soaps should be banned for they instil wrong values and corrupt the nation. Ban these greedy pdoducers for they are the cause of Indian ills. Indians,as a whole,are truely blind they need to face up to realities of life and live as opposed to dwelling in a fantassy world. Enmass switch off is the answer. Get Balaji rubbish of the airwaves and we are all better off.

These soap operas are no use in helping our nation grow. The broadcasters must forget money making from such soap operas and start focusing on supporting women development.
