Agni Pariksha is a talk show on Zee Bangla which focuses on the problems that women in Indian societies typically have to face all the time. Essentially, one sees that there are numerous kinds of atrocities which these women are subjected to, from time to time. Instances include being beaten up by the men folk, being forced to fulfill all the household chores and so on. Further, a peculiar problem in India pertains to that of dowry wherein married women are expected to get money from their parents and give to their husband or the husband’s family. In cases where they are unable to fulfill this obligation, they are beaten up and sometimes killed as well.All this and more forms the backdrop of Agni Pariksha. Agni Pariksha essentially means “fire test”; it is a metaphorical reference to the fact that women in Indian societies, be it in Bengal or any other place, invariably have to go through so many different challenges in life. The way they actually handle all these challenges and eventually either emerge unscathed or face numerous trials and tribulations along the way forms the backdrop of Agni Pariksha.No doubt, all this makes for some truly interesting viewing, especially among the women themselves and that is certainly a major reason for which the popularity of the program has continued to soar in a really big way. Otherwise, we have seen situations where women simply give up and give in. But the women of today do not want to do so very easily and that easily forms the crux of Agni Pariksha – women who want to fight the system and actually change it.It is against such a backdrop that we find Agni Pariksha soaring as far as the television ratings for Bengali language programs is concerned. Women in Bengal have particularly felt marginalized for myriad reasons and that is exactly where we feel that it makes a lot of sense for people to have a sense of awareness with regard to the atrocities which are being committed against women. This awareness and inspiration invariably gets instigated when placed in a public setting and that is where we find Agni Pariksha being so successful. After all, it is easily able to bring together women from various walks of life on to a platform where they can easily share their woes together and then move on in life in terms of getting to a stage where they are actually able to feel more powerful and important.In this regard, it becomes rather obvious that Agni Pariksha is one program which you would not want to miss, especially if you have been religiously following the program for long.
