Second episode of Satyamev Jayate better than the first
The sensitive issue of the second episode of Satyamev Jayate compelled people to look at an ugly..

THE SECOND Episode of Satyameva Jayate took the show a notch up from where it left the first time round. While the first episode fueled a lot of debates as to the show and Aamir Khan playing the intecllectual ringmaster but this time round, it was the subject that actually took precedence in the show. It talked about a subject that is so rampant, prevalent yet under a veil of silence. This time, people were actually able to look beyond Aamir Khan's persona and concentrate on the people who shared about what they went through and how people around them reacted to it.

“After listening to the statistics that 53 percent of Indian children are sexually abused for the first time I thought that except for reading a Pinki Virani book I have never thought how lucky I was to fall in the minority percentage,” said Nikita Maheshwari about the second episode of Satyamev Jayate.

Vineet Kumar Singh, who was bowled over by the first episode of Satyamev Jayate, told that he couldn't be more awestruck with the second episode. He not only appreciated the fact that people are brave enough to share such intimate details of their life but also they are sensitizing a large number of people with the show. “The second episode was more uncomfortable, hard hitting and to speak the truth Dil pe baat sach main lagi iss baar.” While he asserts the fact that Aamir has a huge role to play the confidant and take the show to a new level and that no one else would have done it he also said that the nature of the show is much bigger than the host.

Ashim Sunam, on the other hand feels that an anchor should control his emotions so that the person who is narrating a heart-wrenching story are not moved further seeing the tears. However, as it was a reaction that sparked tears to glisten in the perfectionist's eyes, Sudipta Sengupta believes that tears sell in India.

It seems that the second episode of Satyamev Jayate has certainly converted some of the critics into liking the show, and it is a constructive effort to talk about issues that no one talks about in Indian society. While talking to a parent about the same it was understood that she felt uncomfortable about the entire thing as she herself has a baby and cannot think of a situation where she would be confronted with anything like this. However, she added, “Had it not been shown I would have behaved like a normal mother and would have asked my baby to keep quite supporting the criminal, but now I know better.” Whether people will act or not is difficult to say but it was important that we talk about it. The best part of the second episode was the workshop of Good Touch and Bad Touch as it showed a path for the parents to teach their babies to be safe.
