Dear Dairy,

Finding true love in the modern dating world is extremely difficult. This challenge intensifies if you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community due to societal norms and pressures. Remember how, in our childhood and teenage years, queer relationships were considered taboo? Thankfully, things have changed, albeit with ongoing challenges.

Amidst these reflections, I decided to watch an amazing docuseries titled “Rainbow Rishta.” Now, you might be wondering about the series. Let’s delve into that and find out more.

Why did I love Rainbow Rishta?

First, let me explain why “Rainbow Rishta” piqued my interest. If you’re familiar with “Made in Heaven” Season 2, you might recognize Meher, also known as Dr. Trinetra Haldar Gummaraju.

I’ve been a fan of hers since I started following her on Instagram. Dr. Trinetra Haldar Gummaraju, who underwent gender affirmation surgery at 21, is a trailblazer as Karnataka’s first transgender doctor. Her involvement in the docuseries was enough to draw me in.

Each episode of “Rainbow Rishta” reveals a new narrative, ranging from Daniella’s wedding preparations to the enchanting story set in the lush monsoon season. Among these, the story that truly captured my heart was that of Sadam Hanjabam.

I won’t divulge any details about it because the series itself is a must-watch to appreciate these narratives fully. However, I found one specialty – often, docuseries or documentaries can come across as scripted, but “Rainbow Rishta” stands out for its authenticity.

The struggles are real…

It chronicles the real struggles faced by members of the LGBTQIA+ community. From the outside, it’s easy to pass judgment without understanding their experiences. Have we ever truly considered what they might be going through, the challenges they face in their lives, or the stories that shaped them? This series invites us to reflect on these important questions.

Indeed, our understanding is often limited. In a world where queer relationships are frequently viewed negatively, “Rainbow Rishta” offers a more balanced perspective. Watching the show, I felt a sense of hope for all the couples featured despite the hurdles they faced.

Some struggle with societal issues like finding a house to rent due to their queer identity, while others face personal challenges, such as gaining acceptance from their parents. This series sheds light on these diverse experiences, emphasizing the resilience and love that these couples embody.

Overall setting of Rainbow Rishta

The overall setting of “Rainbow Rishta” is truly mind-blowing. What stands out most is the series’ masterful handling of transitions from one story to the next. These transitions are executed so subtly they keep you deeply engaged and eager to learn more.

As you’re absorbed in one narrative, you find yourself simultaneously curious about the developments in the other stories. This seamless storytelling not only maintains your interest but also skillfully weaves together the various threads of each individual’s journey, creating a rich tapestry of experiences that is both captivating and thought-provoking.

One particularly heartwarming moment in the series, which had me reaching for a box of tissues, involves Soham and Suresh. I apologize for the spoiler, but it’s worth mentioning. In their story, Suresh’s nephew and niece play a pivotal role.

Special mention

What’s so special about this, you might ask? These children, despite their young age, display an inspiring lack of judgment and a genuine wish for the best in life for Suresh and Soham. This moment touched my soul profoundly.

It serves as a reminder of the innate innocence and wisdom of children, who, with their unfiltered view of the world, can teach us invaluable lessons in acceptance and love. The sincerity and empathy shown by these kids are both heartening and thought-provoking, highlighting the inherent goodness that we can all learn from.

On a parting note…

The docuseries, undoubtedly unscripted, presents an array of heartwarming moments that prompt deep reflection. While there are instances of heartbreak, these are handled with care and are highly informative.

Despite the fact that same-sex marriages are not yet legal in India, the Supreme Court’s directive to “end discrimination against the queer community” marks a significant step forward. As members of society, it’s crucial that we embrace this directive.

After all, love truly has the power to conquer great heights. This series not only sheds light on the struggles and triumphs within the LGBTQIA+ community but also serves as a poignant reminder of the universal power and resilience of love.
