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 characters.
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 regarding it.
Dusahobas airs from December 19 and will be screened from Monday to Saturday at 10 pm on Aakash Aath.
