Bigg Boss My Insights


We are now around half the way down of 11th edition of Bigg Boss TV Show with a troupe of highly tele-branded & mediocre celebrities from across the nation who bring in the aura of versatile human psycho-drama on the screens. Well! Ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys, if for Salman Khan Bigg Boss is a place to host the show then for me as an anthropologist Bigg Boss is an ideal fusion to scrutinise the tantalising human behaviour under varied circumstances of emotional plethora. Due to busy schedule of mine I couldn’t follow all the episodes of Bigg Boss but I often tend to lure along with the on goings in the Bigg Boss House during the weekends especially when Mr. Khan takes up the stray.

I love to face the cameras as a sports commentator or a spiritual orator as facing camera had always been a matter of honour for me, but sometimes I just wonder of how life would be in the capture of cameras 24*7 as it is in the Bigg Boss house? Huh! The thrill of this imagination itself rushes the adrenaline wild. I won’t be drafting about the content of the show which will surely become a matter of debate, rather I’d love to sketch about the context which is its ‘emotional insights’ of this seasoned show of the Indian television. These emotional insights actually form the real backbone of this show which pertains to energies of uttama purusha (high-esteem) or adhama-purusha (low-esteem) with ebb of trust in every unconscious action of the performer in the house.
One notable feature of this game is that one has to play as a team and later win as an individual. The tasks which are given should be accomplished and the results have their own pros and cons affecting the contestants in the Bigg Boss House. Being in our own house along with our family members when the circumstances show us the mirror of uncertain paradoxes, it is that time our true character is put in the fire of test. Only when if we pass the test of this fire we are valued, rated, respected, or otherwise we are just ‘otherwise’.

Human life is a mixture of variety of emotions. As the Indian Classical Dance – Bharatnatyam  depicts about the nine different emotions as Nava Rasas – ‘Haasya (Laughter, Joy, Sarcasm, Humor), Adbhuutha (Wonder, Curiosity, Mystery), Shringaara (Love, Devotion, Beauty), Raudra (Anger, Irritation, Stress), Karuna (Sadness, Sorrow, Compassion, Pity, Sympathy), Veera (Heroism, Courage, Pride, Confidence), Bhayaanaka (Fear, Anxiety, Worry), Bhibhatsa (Disgust, Depression, Self-Pity), and Shaanta (Peace, Calmness, Relaxation). These emotions are essential aspects of our mind, body and soul. Every individual possess all these emotions quite naturally, it is only the wavelength of thoughts in proportion to the frequencies of these emotions makes one person different from the other on which we label and analyse ‘Character of the Person’.

Though I had never been a Bigg Boss contestant but by playing the game of life all these years what I can say is, “If we play to win the game of life with the intent of being ‘self-oriented’ (Duryodhana) or ‘others-oriented’ (Bhima), we can never win; but if we play to win the game of life with the intent of being ‘life-oriented’ (Lord Krishna) then victory is surely of ours”.
