Homemaking is a tedious full time job but often in India, the sacrifices of a women looking after the house go completely unnoticed. These are familial obligations, which in India only a woman is supposed to shoulder but the drudgery a woman experiences eternally in a marriage as a housewife is never a matter of concern. She cooks, cleans, runs the house but has no say in the important issues. She is the hands, legs and eyes of the family but has no voice. She dutifully looks after her husband, her children and her in-laws, only to be scorned at or completely ignored. Eventually she cries out of the tedium of household chores that are forced on her by all family members until she starts feeling that marriage has become a trap rather than a loving relationship.
Such is the story of the protagonist of ZEE TV's new offering Hello Pratibha! All of 36, Pratibha is now a mother of two grown up children. Family is her sole priority and she has spent 17 years of her married life raising her children and looking after her in-laws with hardly any time for herself. She has excellently fulfilled her duties for the past 17 years with a smile. She loves her family and feels immense pleasure in being there for them at all times. However, to her family, Pratibha, who before her marriage was a girl filled with hope, ambitions and joy is now a blind spot in the house. All she wants is to be valued by her kids for what she is and not for what she does for them. She wants to be appreciated for the sacrifices she makes for her family. She wants to be an equal voice in decision making and above all, she does not want to be taken for granted!
Hello Pratibha starts Tuesday, 27th January 2015 every Monday to Saturday 7:30 PM only on Zee TV.
