Sex ki Adalat Wiki
Sex Ki Adalat (Court of Sex) is a hindi web series on Sex Education. The Web Series Sex Ki Adalat focuses on menstruation, masturbation, pornography, virginity, and the preference for a male child. Sex Ki Adalat “builds on the impact and success of the edutainment show Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon by the Population Foundation of India (PFI) and creator-director Feroz Abbas Khan. It discusses critical issues related to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of youth and adolescents. It uses the entertainment – education format to build awareness and start a healthy discussion on social media platforms.
Sex Ki Adalat First Episode (Case No 1)
First case of Sex ki Adalat is related to preference for a male child. It is an obvious pun on senior journalist Rajat Sharma’s talk-show Aap Ki Adalat.
The first episode debunks the misconception that a woman determines the sex of her child. If you paid attention to your biology teacher in eight grade, you’ll know that only a male gamete – or sex cell – can contribute a Y chromosome. That’s the chromosome with the SRY gene, the code for a protein involved in testes growth and the inhibition of female gonad development.
THE DANGER OF IGNORANCE
Gamete? Chromosome? Gonad? In a country where the knowledge contained in high school textbook isn’t easily accessible to every citizen, the performing arts, and especially those oeuvres that use vernacular languages, have a vital role to play in educating the citizenry.
As the repentant husband tells the judge in Sex Ki Adalat’s first episode, “Hum ko yeh chromosome-wali baat nahin maalum tha. X kya hota hai, Y kya hota hai, hum ko nahin malum tha (I didn’t know about chromosomes. I didn’t know about X and Y).”
Sex Ki Adalat 2nd Episode (Case No 2)
Population Foundation of India has released the second episode in the series. Case number 2 in this courtroom is aimed at questioning the notions regarding virginity. The Episodes exposes the double standards of our society where the virginity question is only raised for women and never for men.
A report said a woman had been thrashed with hockey sticks, allegedly for giving birth to a girl. And in 2017, female foeticide and infanticide are still far from being things of the past. The numbers paint a damning portrait. A recent report from the Statistics and Programme Implementation Ministry says that the sex ratio in the 15-29 age bracket has been on the decline since 1991. It was 939 (939 girls or women for 1000 boys or men) in 2011, and could be as low as 898 in 2031, according to the World Bank.
So, shows are Sex Ki Adalat are necessary weapons in the fight against the ignorance of biology, and all the dangers this presents.
