Bigg Boss 13: Flop Or Hit? The Answer Lies In The Voyeurism In You And Me!
Bigg Boss 13 is underway. Now, this reality show (if at all it is) is a show whose deeply-studied analysis would emerge only after a certain amount of run. Not the one to get into any Twitter war with those who like it and those who do not (in the past and present), I, on the other hand, have been trying to rather run in my head: 'Why does Bigg Boss click year after year?

Why has Colors earned from it, as per expectations or lesser, even when it had contestants who were not famous? Why has it been Appointment Viewing for many, while that may have lessened with technology growing by the minute and giving access to us about everything with just few taps on our phone screen?'

Overheard in a local train, recently. 'Bigg Boss mein maza aata hai kyunki jaise show aage badhta hai, logon ke asli chehre pata chalte hain'. Pray, why do you need to see people unmasked?

The answer is: We  humans are a very complicated species having a high dose of voyeurism in our blood, it trickles us and anything that tickles is always loved isn't it? And mind you, voyeurism is not something always related to sexual interest. Look up the meaning of voyeurism in the dictionary if you haven't used it until now. It also means enjoying the pain or distress of others. It's a synonym for curiosity. The fact that we humans are innately curious— particularly about the people around us— is the main reason why social media is so popular.
