Mumbai, July 30 (): The final and the thirteenth episode of the show Satyamev Jayate showed Aamir Khan playing a proud host to the unsung heroes, who the world had not known, whose noble initiatives changed a number of lives and is continuing to do so.
Aamir Khan threw light on the persistent work of many social workers, who contribute their life for the betterment of the country and the community, without expecting any returns. By illustrating the common vision of our freedom fighters, Aamir also reminded the audience of the fundamental rights of an Indian citizen.
He said the common vision of our freedom fighters was – The dream that was India. Unluckily, the people in the country are still under the discriminations on the basis of religion and caste.
But, after 65 years of getting our independence, Aamir brought the question in our minds – are we even close to that dream of our freedom fighters? The discrimination between castes, religious groups, sexes is still seen. In addition to it, corruption in our government bodies form a major problem and last but not the least, the lack of education in our country.
The final show highlighted the basic views of the constitution that promises equality for all.
Aamir Khan in his last episode saluted the courage of The Sarvodaya Trust, which gave shelter to both Hindu and Muslim children after the 2001 shattering earthquake in Gujarat. The Trust is now a unique shelter that offers unconditional support to the children of the minority community and treats them as equals.
In addition to it, he also appreciated Sunitha Krishnan, a social worker who looks to rehabilitate rape victims and prostitutes through her anti-trafficking organisation Prajwala.
Sunitha is a rape victim. She said that irony is that “people want to make documentaries and movies on these girls, but no one wants to own them.”
The show ended by describing the work of Naseema Hurzuk, a wheelchair bound lady who runs Helpers Of The Handicapped, an organisation helps disabled.
The curtains of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ are drawn down temporarily but the effect of the show is bound to create ripples in the country and hopefully bring in more change in the way we perceive India now.
