    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College- Part1

    Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the […]

Kaun Banega Pati Aur Lakhpati

| September 9, 2014 | 4 Comments

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (Sometimes informally known as Millionaire) is an International Television game show franchise of British origin, created in 1998 by David Briggs, Mike Whitehill, and Steven Knight.

Kaun Banega Crorepati (Who will become a Millionaire; popularly known as KBC) is an Indian television game show based on the UK game show Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) was first aired in 2000.

In order to participate in KBC one needs to have knowledge on topics related to science, sports, great personalities, geography, music, arts, literature, mathematics mythology, politics, current affairs and many more general knowledge questions, along with a bit of luck. Those who are shortlisted have to undergo a written test followed by video audition that paves way to get selected for fastest finger round and a chance to take the hot seat with Amitabh Bachchan.

However, even before the advent of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Kaun Banega Crorepati”, another game has been much more popular in the Asian Subcontinent since very long, known as Kaun Banega Pati Aur Lakhpati ?

In this game show (KBPAL), only two questions qualify a person to become a Pati (Husband) and he automatically becomes a Lakhpati or even a Crorepati purely based on his answers.  Even those two questions are publicly known.

What are those two super duper questions?

      1. What’s your Qualification?

      2. What’s your Salary?

A majority of Parents educate and prepare their sons to be the biggest winners of this game show (KBPAL).  The sponsors of this game show (Girl’s Parents) leave no stone unturned in order to accumulate money, property and all sorts of gifts to appease the winner of KBPAL.  As a matter of fact, many sponsors (Girl’s Parents) feel very proud and satisfied by hosting this game show even if they have to sell their property or avail huge loans from banks and pay interest for several years.

This is one of the simplest and most rewarding game show on earth wherein the selected person not only gets:

  1. A life partner to provide him and his family members with all household services.
  2. A fat cheque as part of dowry payment (amount based on his answers to above two questions),
  3. Becomes the owner of wealth and property apart from several gifts that are given during the marital journey.

Many individuals and Organizations are constantly educating such sponsors (Girl’s Parents) not to encourage this game show. In Kaun Banega Crorepati after the verification process around 1400 contestants are shortlisted.  However, in this game show (KBPAL) every household that has a Son stands a fair chance to be the contestant. 

This popular game show has given birth to GREED and other forms of evil practices in the Society including murder of the girl for lack of dowry payment. Dowry deaths are deaths of young women who are murdered or driven to suicide by continuous harassment and torture by husbands and in-laws in an effort to extort an increased dowry.

Dowry death is considered one of the many categories of violence against women, alongside rape, bride burning, eve teasing, and acid throwing.  It is widespread in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and some regions of Africa. Pakistan has the highest reported rates of dowry-related deaths of women in the world.

If you truly understand the pain of millions of parents and spinsters, please resist from participating in this game show as well as educate others about the evils of dowry system that has become the mother of all evils in the Asian Society.

    How easy it is to put price tag everything in our country! Wedding is the only industry which never faces recession and is booming every year, sadly so.

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Very true Saru. Indian wedding industry, estimated to be a staggering US$ 25.5 billion (Rs.1,42,596 crore) – the economy of a small country – and growing at the explosive rate of 20 to 25 per cent a year as reported by Hindustantimes.com
