Balika vadhu as Cultural rethinking

Balika vadhu from start till now has got many varations in its culture, this serial has got different cultures. The story deals with Child marriage, a social custom that is still practiced in some parts of India although being banned by law. It is one of the most popular shows and has been running for more than four years. The show is set up in rural Rajasthan and based on the practice of child marriage. It is about Anandi, a young girl married to Jagdish (Jagya), the only grandson of Kalyani Devi (Dadi Sa) and Dharmveer Singh. When Anandi reaches her sasuraal (in laws home), she finds herself listening to her dadi-sa, Kalyani Devi. Little by little, Anandi's childish blunders get her into trouble in the hands of Kalyani. When anandi supports jagat for studies and he leaves foe Mumbai, there he meets Gauri.
For a long time in the serial, there was a lot of love between Jagat and Gauri, something which developed over a period of many years, and one could see that Gauri did love Jagat a lot. Though, at the same time, she was also aware that the relationship between Jagat and her was a bit shaky and so she had to push his family away from him. So, over a period of time, she did a number of activities that either pushed them away, created more distances between Jagat and Anandi and also created emotional blackmail to get Jagat more to her side. Even when it was revealed that Bhairon had actually funded her education, she hide this from Jagat; and then on one occasion when Jagat almost got to know details about Bade Papa and his funding, she became very angry.

On the other hand, the Anandi's life was improving, Shiv was in love with her and got his parents and family to accept her. Now, it was exciting to see when Jagat comes back at the exact time when there are preparations being made for the marriage activities.
"The show is progressing towards the highpoint focusing on Shiv-Anandi's married life. Given the hectic shooting schedules the show demands at this stage, Pratyusha has been unable to commit the required time.
‘Balika Vadhu’ is riding high on TRP’s after Anandi married to Shivraj Alok Shekhar, essayed by actor Siddharth Shukla.
Meanwhile, Pratyusha said that she has no plans post 'Balika Vadhu' .
 A actual example of Cultural Rethinking.
