Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has achieved the milestones over the years for a reason, and here's me, trying to decode how and why has that happened.

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is one of those shows that has always been way ahead of its time in more than just one way. Over the years, the show has taken n number of leaps, the count of which is only available on Wikipedia, but with each leap, even though the leads were shown separated, the situations were different and so, the content was as fresh as new, and there never seemed to have come a major roadblock in its way.

Now, if we talk about the generation leap that was brought about, something we'd say every show does come to at some point or the other, the link somehow breaks apart, and the show suffers a road that only leads to its downfall. However, with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, as long as Hina Khan and Karan Mehra were the leads, the audience hooked to it included not just a specific generation, but towards the end, when we saw Shivangi Joshi and Mohsin Khan enter the show, it did keep the original audience intact, but at the same, invited a new generation of people who weren't very familiar with the show.

Talk about relatability, and there are a lot of things one might not find very practical, but you've got to give a show credit and see it for what it is. At the same time, it has picked up so many issues that need to be talked about, something that was done in line with Star Plus' mantra of rishta wahi, soch nayi and the others that it has had over the time period. We all remember how there are issues about girl child that have been highlighted, molestation from someone inside the family that has been talked about, and so many issues which need a voice, and to reach to a larger audience, what better than television as the medium?

The team has done so much more than just stuff leaps, separation, or kitchen drama in the show, and the focus has been on more than just being called that. The show has seen growth in terms of content, the graph of how things have gone during various situations, and of course, the idea that is put out there in the audience. We can't finish talking about a television show without taking into consideration how the TRPs have been and how low numbers have always been taken care of by adding a wave of fresh content and maybe, that is one major reason why the show is what it is, and stands where it does.

In a time when progressive content is what is the talk of the town, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has been going on in the right direction.
