ki lakshmi betiyann Menika

Menika is the woman that ruined the peace of saints in Indian myths. Using her name as a reflection of her character, Menika is the second wife of Surykant and is extremely deceitful. She is connving and sly, and adopts the persona of the villain for she deliberatly creates problems in the household.

Important things to remember about her are:
*Despite being a female, she still discriminates against the four daghters by considering them inferior to her son.
*In the latest storyline she discovers her son has actually married a prostitute and has decietfully gained access to the whole Garoria wealth and fortune.
*She is now being badly treated by her daughter in law.

Surkyants first wife, whose name stands for Lord Rama's dutiful wife. She adopts this role perfectly, obeying all of her husband's wishes and trying her hardest to keep the family together.
Taking on the mother and wife persona, it is interesting to see how she has indirectly passed on her qualities to her daughters too. -They become suppressed housewives who readily accept their fate just as she once did.

Suryakant's mother and the instigator, along with Menika, of the familys main conflicts. She too places importance on having a heir and through this mistreats the daughters and Savitri badly. She stands for the traditional norms of an indian society, enforcing them wherever possible at all times.
Saat Phere is Hindi serial that airs on Zee Tv. The serial is based on the discrimination and degradation of women that still continues in India today and the protagonist, Saloni, is one of the girls who faces this situation.

Saloni is a 24 year old girl who has a dark complexion and the story shows how Saloni's courage and strength lets her continue to overshadow her complexion and also to get on board a journey to search for her own identity hence the tagline - "Saloni ka Safar" which means "Saloni's journey".

Zee Tv explains the programme as:

Saat Phere is a story of a girl’s struggles against the stigmas forced upon her by society and her quest for her unique identity. Although India has progressed in various fields of technology, science & education, discrimination against women remains the root cause of regression in many societies in India leading to degradation of women.One such story is that of Saloni, a dark complexioned 24-year-old girl. Salonis’s talent is overshadowed by her complexion. Faced with such a situation, Saloni is determined to not let society's will be imposed upon her and ruin her life and has the will, spirit and the courage to embark upon the journey to search for her own unique identity.
Zee Tv's synopsis defines the cause of my study and in itself, presents neatly the conflcit between modern and traditional values. It seems that the world has moved on yet women remain strongly at the heart of discrimination and at severe disadvantages.
Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyannis a story of a Gujarati family that depicts the mindset of individuals who still believe that society can be run and governed by men only, thus introducing India's patriarchal beliefs.

Concept & Story:
Betiyaan is a story of a Gujarati family that depicts the mindset of most of the middle and upper middle class families of the society.

Suryakant Garodia is also one of these. He is a known, respected businessman whose family since past four generations is into the business of making traditional Gujarati 'bandhanis' and because of this reason he is one of the most respected and richest individuals of the area. For him its just not a business but matter of pride.

But what worries most to Suryakant is that will this honor and family business end with him? Will there be no one else from his next generation who will follow this decades old family pride and bussiness?

After giving birth to three daughters, his wife Savitri once again is expecting a child and Suryakant this time is very hopeful of having a son. In fact, his family pandit has predicted that this time there are no chances of anything going wrong. Finally the day comes. It’s Diwali. All are hoping that this Diwali will mark the entry of the heir to their family. Suryakant’s mother, too, is very hopeful and pressure is building up on Savitri. However, finally as Savitri gives birth to a girl, all dreams, expectations and hopes are shattered for one more time.

The newly born baby girl is called ‘Laxmi’, one who is not welcomed by anyone in the family except her mother and sisters. Though Suryakant always wishes to have a son but at the same time he is even fulfilling all his responsibilities towards his daughters, but as a man with orthodox thoughts he thinks that girls aren't really members of the family and one day they have to move on (marriage).

Things become more complicated when doctors declare that because of some biological problems Savitri will never be able to conceive in future. His family’s pandit suggests very soon will be blessed with it but for that, something has to be done…. something very drastic. And as expected, worst hits the family and Savitri when, one fine day, Suryakant walks in the house with Menka… second wife.

Savitri is shocked and helpless. Suryakant’s mother as well as sisters supports Suryakant’s act. Savitri is helpless and accepts Menka in her life and family. Menka, after few days gets pregnant and… on the next Diwali, much to the family’s delight, delivers a son, Yuvraj.

Suryakant’s life changes and now he is the happiest man on the earth. Menka becomes dominant in the house and Savitri and her daughters are pulled down. Suryakant & his family, least bothered about the existence of his first wife and four daughters, is happy in their new world with Menka and Yuvi.

It’s in these circumstances that the children grow up under the same roof… a brother whose every wish becomes the command at home… & his four elder sisters, whose every wish is sidelined & sacrificed. While the elder three sisters are too afraid of their father to raise their voice against this blatant injustice, it is Lakshmi, the effervescent, bubbly youngest of the lot, who will stand up for herself… & her sisters… in fact, for all daughters & women… & stake claim to their rightful place in their family, society… & the world!
