Hindi serials are known for setting new trends which other shows follows.It is almost like a snowball effect. Everything right from taking a leap, to love-hate relations to love scenes in a jungle, all stories use old tricks to get higher TRPs.

The latest visible trend which is going buzzing in Indian serials is the abortion/miscarriage tracks. Surprisingly,  it is very rare the lead actress successfully delivers a child without any hindrances. It is either an abortion or a miscarriage.Watching these soaps, the audience does ponder upon the thought if getting pregnant is a Herculean task

Shows like Bade Acche Lagte Hai did go show before the leap about how Natasha (Sumona Chakravarti) doesn't want her child as it will affect her professional life and decides to undergo an abortion. However her decision leaves her with the grim reality of never being able to conceive again. When we asked Sumona she said, "Bade Acche Lagte Hai did not use the abortion track for the sake of TRP, definitely. It was a track going on since a long time which started when Natasha's pregnancy was discovered before her marriage. Yes it is a sensitive topic and Natasha's pregnancy/abortion track has been handeled very carefully and sensitively and not recklessly. It never sent out any wrong signal. It is  a reflection of reality and that's what we showed".

On the other hand Simar (Dipika Samson) goes through a miscarriage in Sasural Simar Ka as Khushi (Jyotsana Chandola) wants to take revenge from her, resulting in Simar's inability to conceive again. Now the show has shown the surrogacy track with Khushi being the candidate for being the surrogate mother.

The list doesn't end here, Anjali (Daljeet Bhanot) in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon recently went through the same as her husband Shyaam (Abhaas Mehta) wanted to take a revenge from Arnav (Barun Sobti) and Khushi (Sanaya Irani) and decides to use his wife to target the two.

On the other hand, Jeevika (Krystle Dsouza) in Star Plus' popular show Ek Haazaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, has decided to abort her child in order to save her sister, Maanvi's (Nia Sharma) life. But who knows maybe creatives might just end up showing that Jeevika cannot conceive again. It's all a mystery.

Other shows like Balika Vadhu where Gauri (Anjum Farooqi) goes through a miscarriage, Dil Se Di Dua Saubhagyavadi Bhava? witnesses  Jhanvi's (Sriti Jha) miscarriage after her husband (Karnvir Bohra) brutally beats her up.

The trend of abortions, miscarriages and pregnancy has spread like wild fire on the small screen. The audiences will now be waiting to see something new, interesting and masaledar on their favorite shows.
