Mata Ki Chowki
The Hindu shastras call this the age of Kalyug; an era where evil prevails over good and humanity seems to have lost all moral values & spirituality. Starting Monday, 9th June, ‘MATA KI CHOWKI’, from the SaharaOne stable will embark on a journey of the restitution of goodwill. The story revolves around Vaishnavi, an orphan girl who is found by the Pandit couple of Vaishno Devi shrine who are childless even after nine years of marriage. As the story progresses, Vaishnavi develops immense interest and faith in Mata Vaishno Devi. She is popularly called “Katra Ki Beti” since she’s actively involved in preaching about Mata, sings Jagrata, motivates people to follow preachings of Mata and rescues people from pain and misery, all of which are seen as miracles by the masses. The story takes a drastic turn when her fate lands her on an unexpected path of life. In an unprecedented turn of events, Vaishnavi marries in to an house where she has to negotiate against all the evil misdeeds of her in – laws, in order to protect her loved ones. Disaster after disaster seems to strike her life – being blamed for her mother’s early demise; taking on her younger sister’s responsibilty by marrying a man who doesn’t love her in order to save her father’s pride & honour; horrified by the dark deeds and ills prevailing in big cities; and finally, threatened with becoming a martyr to fulfill someone’s greed. Her faith in Mata sees her sail through every possible hurdle that life throws at her while at the same time her good deeds towards enlightening the masses raises her divine personality amongst them. The journey of Vaishnavi in the enlightened path of Mata will go on forever and ever, even though she has to take another birth.
