Over time, the values, traditions and the way of life in society have changed. In today’s day and age, a small family has become the accepted norm. But this norm of a small and happy family with no more than two children has also raised some serious questions. Post marriage, girl is expected to leave her parental home and take care of her in-laws. In such a scenario what happens to parents who have no son? Should such parents spend the last years of their lives in an old age home or should they live a helpless life when they need help the most? Addressing this issue in our society is this subject of our show, Ek Ghar Banaunga.
The protagonist of the story, Poonam is faced with the dilemma of how to provide for her parents when she is not around and her only brother is in the U.S. As luck would have it, a solution arises when she is helpless. Her parents are left alone to cope with their situation when her husband, our male protagonist Aakash sees her concern and decides to bring her parents’ home. The problem starts when both parents and the in-laws of the protagonists start staying together. Will this arrangement be smooth for everyone or will it lead to souring of relationships, brewing of troubles and questioning by society. Ek Ghar Banaunga elaborates on this very topic.
