DD National to telecast a show on women issues featuring Aamir Khan..

If you give us 100 educated mothers, then we can build a stronger nation”. The meaning of these words spoken by Vivekanand was reiterated by a special Women’s Day show called  'Swayamsidha' to be telecast on DD National on 14th March at 8 pm. Renowned Bollywood actor, and maker of thought provoking show ‘Satyamevjayate’ appeared and made some significant comments on status of women in society.



Shot in Doordarshan Mumbai, and anchored by Neelam Sharma, the show originally was telecast on 8th March at 10 pm, with couple of well known women achievers from different walks of life, who gave their views.

The women who participated in this show were IPS Meera Chaddha, Former Election Commissioner and writer Neela Satyanarayan, actor Vikram Gokhle whose recent film ‘Raat Van vaiche’ was telecast on DD Mumbai, Advocate & member ‘Beti Bachao Movement’ Varsha Deshpande, Dr. Shweta Mahapatra, Communication Chief, UNICEF, Kalpana Saroj, owner of Kamani Tubes, famous lawyer and women rights activist, Flavia Agnes and Mona Khot who is the producer of ‘Stree Shakti’ telecast on DD National.

Aamir started the show by focusing on not just the importance of girl child education, but also little boys who need to learn to respect women. He said, this will inculcate a healthy relationship of equality amongst the boys and girls.

Many issues were touched on the show “Swayamsidha”, while the over arching point made was that it’s important to change the mindset, strengthening the role of women in relationships, family, society and nation at large, it is first of all important to educate and empower the girls and women. If daughters and sisters would be strong, they will become stronger mothers and mothers in law.

Aamir and all the members spoke freely and concluded the show with a promise that every woman would try to empower the other men and women, and that’s how the condition of women would improve in our society.

The show’s upcoming telecast is at 8 pm on DD National, on 14th March 2015.
