The path that we pave toward destiny is often the result of our choices, the rest is mere tenacity. The life that we yield is the outcome of the perspectives we had and the decisions we made in accordance with them. Decisions that we make for ourselves, or in the capacity of a relationship, decide the future of not just one person, but also play cause and effect in other people’s life. It also involves your concurrences to the choices and decisions made for you and the consequences you harvested from them.

HUM TV’s drama serial “Agar” extensively discusses, and sparks astute conversation, about the choices that can transform yours or the lives of someone you love. A single mother’s decision might seem selfish to not marry her eldest daughter for her own monetary reasons, but one keeps rationalising the possible alternative she might have determined, but in vain. The only explication that seems plausible is that. if she had been educated enough to run the family solely after being widowed, then she might not have taken such desperate step of depriving her own child from the splendours of youth and companionship. Being ripped off from that privilege, she was left with no choice but to do the inevitable and that lead to the chain of choices made by her children.


Every choice that a person makes has consequences, both positive and negative, that can impact their future in a variety of ways. An endless chain of reactions resumes from them sometimes altering multiple lives altogether. Ultimately, the choices that a person makes can define their future by shaping their opportunities, experiences, and outcomes. It is important to consider the potential consequences of their choices and make decisions that align with their goals and values to create a positive future for themselves. Selflessness being the driving force of decisions or choices is often considered to be virtuous and noble, but the redundancy of even such novelty can results into disappointment.

Agar emphasizes on the discourse about the choice of career and marriage, and how increased inclination towards one, leads to adverse consequences. The idea of balance plays a crucial role. Right choices at the right time, and the absence of either, can play heaven or havoc in one’s life. So just like Ainee was compelled to focus on her career defying the wheel of time and age and she confronted severe ramifications, likewise, Hooriya’s rush for marrying at a young age and not focusing on education or career lead her to a devastating state.

The question is not to pick and choose from the two, but to be considerate enough to maintain a fine balance between the timing and placement of the two in one’s life. Like Chandni always keeps a balance in her demeanour and predilections and hence is acknowledged and peaceful.

It confers to the fact that career is an essential aspect of a woman’s life, as it provides numerous opportunities for personal growth, financial independence, and social empowerment. There is no qualm about the element that a career provides women with opportunities to learn new skills, gain knowledge, and broaden their horizons. It does not just help them develop a sense of purpose, confidence, and self-esteem, which are essential for personal growth, but can also prove to be the ultimate support in time of adversities or unforeseen calamities.
