Hindi TV soaps can be injurious to your health. They can induce hangovers, even though there’s no alcohol involved (did that saas really go ballistic because her bahu wanted to study? Study = unpardonable crime? Er...)
They can make you so depressed, you may be driven to drugs and drink (did the bahu just take all that s**t silently?) They can make you lose it, so much so that you want to hurl something at the TV (why is that heroine so annoying? Why can’t she be normal?)
But they can also make you laugh. Check out our Sari Sindoor Glycerine TV Awards. Last year’s edition was such a big hit, we just had to come back with a Season 2! (Plus we had a blast putting it together). Send us your nominations too.
