PILLAR OF STRENGTH: Vasudha (Pratiksha) shares her woes with Rajlaxmi (Prabha Sinha).

DAILY SOAPS are a major source of entertainment for all those avid television viewers despite their lengthy and contrived situations.

The serial, Kahani Nahin, Jeevan Hai, based on ETV's popular Telugu series, Idi Katha Kadu, successfully completed 100 episodes in July this year.

Produced by Provideo, the serial has been a big hit with ETV's Hindi channels. Provideo, run by Venugopal K. Thakker, a cinematographer from FTII, Pune, has always been associated with programming which is popular as well as meaningful and pertinent.

Quality and excellence marks Provideo productions that have been associated with industry biggies like Shyam Benegal and Basu Chatterjee.

Provideo is known for its earlier programmes like Amaravati Ki Kathayen, Forts of India, Gangapur Ka Gangaramand Mamata Ka Aangan, and its documentaries have won many awards.

A National Award for Tobacco Habits and Oral Cancer in the category of Best Educational Film in 1977 and Rangula Kala for the Best Telugu Feature Film in 1983 are a few distinctions of the television software production. Directed by Ashish Patil, who has serials like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahin Diya Jale Kahin Jiya to his credit, Kahani Nahin... boasts of excellent production value and aesthetic content. It is a sorrowful saga of Vasudha, a woman of strength and confidence despite being confronted with problems.

How she boldly faces these circumstances forms the crux of the serial.
