There are some credulous people we would have come across in life who believe in meaningless sentiments. The one which is really horrid is that natural happenings are correlated to sentiments.A cat walking across,power shut down when speaking about important things or taking important decisions in life ,if we happen to see a widow if we are stepping out for some function are some extraneous reasons cited by people for failures in life.All these are not planned activities in our life.Going a step ahead and insulting a women in the name of sentiments is indeed a heinous act.An educated and a cultured man should fall into this sordid trap. Even when the world contorts ,these hasty sentiments will never die unless we put an end to it. In television,especially in serials the sentiments are highlighted more and were given too much importance.What is painstaking here is that they never try to give a positive message.Instead they awaken the sleeping minds and try to corrupt the people.I would like to narrate a scene in one of the serials telecasted at noon. A parent is eagerly searching bridegrooms for their daughter who is of the marriageable age.For one reason or the other the proposals are going out of hand. The girl (bride) visits temple with her mother,the camphor lit off when the priest brought near to her.Her pity mother complains of “sagunam” and felt dejected.The proposal was cancelled again.So the media itelf conveys that sentiments are true.There is no moral conveyed rather than making use of squalid sentiments ,speaking and adorning the petty politics.I can only conclude that sentiments are an obscure promulgation(law). So friends,what is your opinion?
