Chidiyaghar and Taraakkaultachashma are probably the only two television serials which continue to sustain the interest of viewers who care for some humour and the message they convey. The first brings out the importance and maintenance of relationship among members of a joint family and the second focuses on team spirit among diverse people residing in a colony. However it was shocking to see the turn of events in the first serial with an introduction of an extortionist who tries every means to force the family to part with their property offering an exorbitant price but fails in his attempt. Then he threatens to perish the family and resorts to his ‘supernatural powers’ to take vengeance on the youngest member of the family, a school going girl because she makes fun of his offer by asking for his mother in exchange instead of the fortune he offers. It is frightening and scary even for adults to watch the girl behaving in a weird manner. I feel such scenes should be withdrawn in the interest of the viewers, especially children.
