Poverty, Ambition, Sensuality and Commercialization of art:

Prakash Saput's Sakambari- Much fury!


April 17, Kathmandu-

“Two things I ask of you, LORD; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.” David asks of the Lord in Proverbs 30:7-9, and not without practical reasons in this fallen world.

Can one be forced into unwanted professions by the sheer pressure of poverty?
Sakambari, the latest buzz by the famed Prakash Saput, tries to comment on this issue- capitalizing on the plight of the poor village girl and clever male vultures, has drawan millions views, thousnads likes – and equally heated flakes this time!
Fulmaya, a village girl is brought to the Capitol city with the enticement of becoming a model and artist, emerges as Sakambari, learning the tricks of the trade perhaps too soon.
Some have appreciated Saput for honestly bringing out the tragic and pathetic reality of poor girls who have the responsibility of becoming the bread-winners for the family on the one hand, and have a lurking ambition for fame and fortune on the other.
 Others have criticized him for having a narrow mindset that questions the girls as to who gave them their pendants and how they could afford for gadgest like freezer and vehicle, etc.
But one this is clear; the same person who showed her the dreams of the tinsel town also ravaged her physically, so he has no right to ask her about her morality
If every artistic portrayal were to be taken to claim that all the characters of any given group are corrupt, immoral and so on, then no art, no literature and no movie, music video would be possible without being accused of having a sterotypical mindset, being sexist and money-minded.  Art should be taken as art and analogy can only be drawn to a certai  extent.
