Jalan – the story that we love to hate. But is it still teaching us something, amidst all the sensationalism?
Please note: this article is bordering on, if not a heavily sarcastic take on the content of this drama. So please don’t take it to heart … and skip it if you really can’t bear the advice! (though you’d do well to read between the lines here)
Here are 5 Things you might want to pay attention to. (Well, if you’re watching, you might as well take note, right)?
1. A lesson for young wives to never take a relationship for granted
2. Know that your husband is in love with you, but …
He’s not a Saint, so keep an open mind when you spot something off between him & another person
3. Be on your guard & STAY paranoid that someone might steal him away from right under your nose.
P.S. this was a semi sarcastic point for those who will get jazbaati
Even in your own home & sometimes, that person could (seemingly) be very close to you too).
4. Child favouritism & spoiling by parents has long lasting repercussions on the child’s personality (when he/she grows up).
So learn to say no as a parent, right from the start
5. Yes, some situations need to be addressed with a tight slap.
Even though you are totally against any form of violence.
And there we have it. We leave it to your discretion, which advice you think is aptly given.
Dramas like Jalan have provoked much debate over the questionable content that is aired on our Prime Time television. Should we object or should we just stop watching? After all, if we don’t watch, the content is bound to fail, right? So, the question is, how far are we responsible for the success of a story line? If you feel strongly about something, you’ll know what to do! The answer, dear Watson, lies in the question itself – to watch or not to watch – you answer that one and it’s all sorted!
