In addition, people know abortion happens in India because some families prefer boys to girls. They believe it happen only in village or country side. It is not truth. Even in big city like Delhi or Mumbai, educated people do it.

There must be many realities which people don’t know even if they are Indian. Now, I started to understand why people say Aamir Khan is brave to be appeared in this show. It can be big impact for this country to make reality clear. It can make sense that this program mainly spoken in Hindi. However, it is worth to watch for foreigner like me as well.
