Satyamev Jayate, a quintessential example of Indian consciousness, in today’s issue of ‘Road accidents or Murders?’ has put forward certain obvious yet reassuring prospects about safe roads, better drivers, tested vehicles and to be discreet sensible human beings. Otherwise this issue would not be better explained with much sensibility, support and involvement of one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, Aamir Khan. You cannot expect too much of drama or more of the usual statistics from this show because that’s not the whole point of Satyamev Jayate. If that were the case, then why would anyone provide hard-earned information while our host, Aamir Khan, publicly displays a much intended reaction to us?
Satyamev Jayate may not have gained as much support and importance as other entertainment television shows but somewhere down the road, it has gained the audacity to portray social, political, and economic and safety conundrums without actually having to “force” people to watch it or provide feedback. What it does is extremely simple, it characterizes people firsthand; it makes the subject more personal than subjective and sketches out intimate life-experiences of those people for others to understand. Then the subject moves on to those people, without whom, the subject wouldn’t be public anyway; many sincere and up-front questions are asked to officials working for the concerned departments, supported with evidence and visual confirmation about various doings in India.
Satyamev Jayate, considering the desperation of Indian mentality, is vital and much needed. We may not know the importance of change but change is most needed where Indians are not just common civilians of a country, they’re more susceptible to drown in a world where there isn’t proper empathy and logical goodwill. As the title suggests, everything is possible, you just have to try. Try harder.
