Desi moms are amazing. They are among the most innocent creatures on this planet. When they get passionate about something it gets beyond politics or any other thing happening around 😀 Same is in the case of their choice for entertainment 🙂 No matter how much their children argue about the clash between India. Their love for those glittery dramas and shows won’t die 😀
Since the ban on Indian shows has implied our moms wander around the house like ‘Jag soona soona lagay’.
They are missing everything they once had and now it’s gone 🙁
Big Boss :
If it was some other time of the year maybe it would be different. But this happened just when the 10th season of Big Boss was about to start.
Now every one of us knows how much our moms love and enjoy those phaddas in the house.
You can argue for a lifetime and keep asking them to make you understand the concept behind all the fuss. But you will only get “Main poochti hun tumse jab tum wo angraizi dramay daikhtay ho sara din kaanon main laga kay” 😀
For a long time my mom was lost and sad like she lost her pet or something 😀 But she took the initiative finally 😀
She found a website to watch her favorite show and now she is that happy go lucky one again 😀 Trust me , I always thought only I could finish a season in a couple of days , but I swear she gave me a tough competition 😀
Gopi Vauu 😀
Our moms are literally missing their very own Gopi Vauu 😀 Now that show was not worth finding on a website and watching it. But sometimes we can still hear them say, “pata nahi kahan puhanch gaya hoga Gopi Vauu wala drama ” 😀
There is an old couple living next to me , completely harmless and they do not have much to do. So they used to watch Indian shows like “Tarak Mehta Ka Ultah Chashma” . It kept them company and I could hear them laugh from my room. Now they only watch news channels 🙁
How sad it is 🙁
Music channels :
There is a time from 10 am to around 12 am when our mothers can relax just a little. (by relax I mean do the house chores without worrying about the time) At that time they turn on the music channels that plays Indian music which energizes them while they work. Now that those energy boosters are gone , it takes almost half an hour to find a channel that plays good music back to back.
The only time moms watch a movie is when they are bored (or there is no Gopi Vauu happening) 😀 And they watch it mostly if they are switching through channels and get a glimpse of something like “Baghbaan” or “Hum Sath Sath Hain”.
Moms do not go through the fuss of searching a movie , then finding a better print and then streaming or downloading them. That was kind of the only way they have. I bumped onto the cable wala movie channel couple days ago, and there was a black and white movie :/ That’s sad :/
Also , apart from our moms, there is a large amount of people who fights over India vs Pakistan for more than an hour and then inbox others to ask , “bhai yeh ae dil hai mushkil ka link tou day dain” . Seriously ?
The Final Word
I’m all for Pakistani Media and Pakistan Industry. But I believe entertainment does not have boundaries. Also , our moms just miss a little entertainment. Whether it comes from a Hum Tv ka Bin Roye or Starplus ka Gopi Vauu .
