The TV serial establishes the womanhood and fight of a woman in the worst society of women. Sprit of womanhood focuses Meera serial from the real character of history. I just want explain two more TV serials – Hamari Devrani and Ladies Special that celebrates the modern sprit of womanhood. However, there is no match between both serials to Meera. Meerabai chooses the way of devotion rather than becoming a perfect bride in that society. Costume, characters and reality of the Show is the best but character of Meera in this TV serial is very artificial.
