Taslima Nasreen loves getting into
controversies and she did it again. The author of the controversial
novel 'Lajja' says that women shown in the Indian Television
serials depict weakness.
Taslima has slammed the television serials saying that they love
showing a women weak or submissive and do not show them as strong.
She believes that women today are much stronger than the men so
they should be shown as strong, independent and warrior like
Nasreen says that in her television serial Dusahobas,
she would show women as powerful and much more authoritative than
shown in the television serials now. She does not want to glorify
the submissive woman in her serial.
She says that people, who are misogynist, who see women in bad
light, probably make such serials. According to her, the serials do
not show women as doctors, engineers or philosophers and their
characters are relegated to the roles of housewives. She challenges
and tells that she will not do the same and will show the
chauvinist society how brave women are.
She suggests the makers not to make serials according to what is
popular with the audience rather make better and unique choices
Dusahobas airs from December 19 and will be screened
from Monday to Saturday at 10 pm on Aakash Aath.
