Satyamev Jayate – Theme Songs
The New Show of Amir Khan ‘SatyaMev Jayate’ has created a rebel. Amir has touched very very sensitive and horrifying issues like Female foeticide and child sex abuse. At the end of each show a new fresh composition is being sung. These songs are also very touchy. Here are the videos of these songs :
Episode 01: Daughters Are Precious
In this episode Aamir talks about the killing of unborn girls, or female foeticide, an alarming and frightening reality. It involves the collusion of families, doctors and a social structure that encourages the desire for a boy child – at any cost. The result has been the death of over 3 crore unborn girls since independence and a generation of young men, many amongst whom will find it very tough to get a life partner.

Child Sexual Abuse
Episode 02: Break The Silence
The sexual abuse of children is a horrible reality, and many are unaware of its extent. Research has shown that as many as 53 per cent, or one in every two children, are victims of child sexual abuse. Contrary to belief, the home is not the safest place for a child, as many abusers are trusted by the family. A strong and specific law against child sexual abuse must be put in place to protect the child and vigorously punish the abuser.

Big Fat Indian Wedding
Episode 03: Marriage Or Marketplace?
Most people dream of a lavish wedding but the reality in India is that expensive wedding celebrations and heavy dowry demands end up making brides’ lives miserable and ruining their families. The very concept of marriage has been turned into a transaction, with no value placed on the people or the relationship. But this can change, and it is up to girls and their families to say NO to dowry, to insist on simple ceremonies and restore the sanctity of the wedding bond.

Every Life Is Precious
Episode 04: Does Healthcare Need Healing?
People trust medical practitioners, believing that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to safeguard their health. But when this knowledge is misused to exploit this trust, medical care becomes a nightmare. The profession is riddled with unscrupulous doctors and hospitals out to make big bucks at the cost of patients, but there are still medical practitioners who stand up for the Hippocratic Oath, and those who want to clean up the profession.
“Masoom Si Naav”, by Ram Sampath
Intolerance To Love
Episode 05: Is Love A Crime?
The simple act of falling in love opens up a world of emotions and reactions which sometimes culminate in crime – the death of the couple. Even if they escape death, lovers who go against religious and community barriers still have to face harassment and censure from society and, due to this pressure, rejection from their families. But the law is clear, that consenting adults are free to marry. And there is an organization which protects couples, helps them fight harassment and gives them shelter so they can marry freely.

Persons With Disabilities
Episode 06: We Can Fly!
People with disabilities have the same zeal and appreciation for life as the rest of us do. They can, and want to, participate in all aspects of life along with the mainstream. But people with disabilities get shunned, doubted, mocked and insulted. Access to public places and buildings is restricted and often impossible. Doors are closed for schooling and employment. India does not appear to be mature enough and understanding enough to recognise people with disabilities for what they are – people.
“Chanda Pe Dance”, by Sona Mahapatra & Shadab Faridi
Episode 07: Danger At Home
For countless women, entering married life often means the beginning of a stressful, violent existence. Beating one’s wife seems to be ingrained in many men’s mindsets as the appropriate behaviour for a strong male, but the consequences are misery for the wife and children, and often a broken, unhappy home. The concept of domestic violence is based on the notion of patriarchy, which needs to be converted into equality.
“Sakhi”, by Meenal Jain
Episode 08: Poison On Our Plate?
Every bite of food and sip of water we take is important for our health and well-being, right from the time we are newborn infants. Yet, for decades our food and water have been contaminated by powerful, harmful pesticides which have been promoted as necessary for better agricultural output. But the reality is that we don’t need pesticides for better yield, and the use of these pesticides is not only deadly for health but results in expensive farming methods. The solution is to adopt organic farming, which is possible and profitable, as the state of Sikkim has shown.
“Mitti Bole Maati Bole”, by Krishna Beura & Ram Sampath
Episode 09: Think Before You Drink
Alcohol consumption is associated with having fun and enjoying life. But excessive, irresponsible drinking takes away that very life itself. Many alcohol addicts have climbed back to normal life, proving that it is possible to live happily without alcohol. Help for alcoholics is available, free, at Alcoholics Anonymous. Even the occasional drinker must never drink with the aim of becoming drunk. And under no circumstances must you drink and drive – that is the road to disaster, literally.
“Aye Zindagi”, by Ram Sampath
Episode 10: Dignity For All
For a country which has been independent for 65 years, it is a matter of shame that we have not yet shaken off the tyranny of caste-based discrimination. Countless people have to live in degrading conditions, children are unable to go to school, employment avenues are closed, and even education does not open bigoted minds. No measure of progress can be true unless the question of people’s equality is factored into it. And we can only be considered a progressive nation when we refuse to accept caste differences.
“Kabir Vani”, Keerti Sagathia
Episode 11: Sunset Years, Sunshine Life
Our parents are the ones who have brought us up and made us what we are. At least out of consideration for that much, we should be good and kind towards them. But countless people all over India don’t think so, going by the numbers of abandoned old people taken in at old age homes. Then there are some older people who take matters into their own hands – be it romance or adventure sport.
“Bahut Yaad Aate Ho Tum”, by Jaswinder Singh
Episode 12: Every Drop Counts
After air, the next most vital thing for our survival is water. While at the moment we have enough water for our needs, a time is likely to come when our water supply runs out and we have to buy water at a price similar to fuel. This is a situation which already exists in some parts of the country, and ‘water wars’ are a common occurrence. The solution, which some people have implemented, is to save and store rainwater.
“Jal na Jaye Jal” by Sukhwinder Singh
The Idea of India
Episode 13: We The People
When India’s leaders envisaged building a new nation after Independence, the Constitution was the foundation stone of this endeavour. We had resolved to establish a sovereign, secular, democratic republic with justice, liberty, equality and fraternity for all. Enough Indians have been putting these principles into action, that the country can find hope to awaken into a ‘heaven of freedom’.
