Now a days TV channels are broadcasting Series on Historical Figures but they mix so much fiction in the facts that the Series no longer stays Historical but it becomes a work of fiction so I hate to watch the current Historical TV Series. Today I was watching some random channel and saw an episode of Chandragupt Maurya, to my horror, the real facts were completely missing in the show and lot of fictional work was included and that too copied from different shows.
In the episode I saw (I watched it for only 10 minutes and couldn't bear it) that the Magadh Emperor Dhanand has organised an open arena, the design of the arena is 80% copy of the Ludos of Batiatus in Spartacus TV Series and the color tone, Audience and the situation shown on the Chandragupt Maurya show was ditto copy of the Spartacus Gladiator scenes.
Now the facts: Indians have Wrestling (called as Kusti) and that too was always friendly, but the scenes shown the Chandragupt Maurya showed what we call fight to death and that too Gladiator style. Also during the reign of Dhanand on Magadh there are no proof at all for such activities. Even in later period also there is no such events. Also in one scene it is shown that King Dhanand has ordered an Archer to kill Kid Chandragupt Maurya, while in realty Dhanand never knew about Chandragupta in the early years.
So if such wrong facts are being showed on TV Channels then how can our younger generation would know real facts. Previously I saw Jhansi Ki Rani which also showed a lot of wrong situations and displayed then as true facts which they are wrong.
I still remember the old days when Serials were informative and they carry real facts rather than fictional creations of writer to get higher TRP.
I loved the old TV Series which were aired on Doordarshan like Chanakya, Tipu Sultan, Mahabharat, Betal Pachchisi, Vikram aur Betal etc. they carried so much of information which enhances knowledge but current TV Serials fill garbage in minds of viewers.
I hope that Censor Board may also impose some regulations regarding providing wrong information on programs which are showing Historical peoples.
What you all think???
