Do you remember Maya Sarabhai? I knew you would remember her!

For those who are still wondering who she is – Maya Sarabhai was a character in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, an Indian sitcom which created it’s own space. It was about a family which had ‘upper class’ saas, Maya Sarabhai, whose son marries a ‘middle class’ bahu, Monisha.

The sitcom was about daily lives of Sarabhais and how Monisha would her ‘middle class’ life and how Maya’s ‘upper class’ life was intervened and their lives interfered with each others’. It was an interesting juxtaposition of two ‘classes’.
