Star Plus' Aap Ki Kachehri Kiran Ke Saath a show about real people, real disputes, real drama and real emotions will premier on Decemeber 1. A first of its kind on Indian television, the show offers open hearings of civil disputes and a compassionate yet firm and lawful mediation and arbitration by Dr. Kiran Bedi. This journey from the despair of dispute to hopeful resolution is laden with the promise of fascinating insights into human behaviour and values of our society today, along with promoting a better understanding of our rights and laws.
Each episode will see disputants bringing forth their conflicts, stating and arguing their complaints and demands themselves. As the human stories unfold, common predicaments and real dilemmas will be laid bare. From calm reasoning, heated arguments to raw emotional outbursts - helplessness, anger, despair, and often, relief – Aap Ki Kachehri encapsulates a variety of human behaviour and emotions.
At the helm of the show as mediator/arbitrator is India's first woman police officer and Magsaysay Award winner, Kiran Bedi. While dealing with the disputes, she plays the role of a questioner, counsellor, mediator and arbiter, all rolled into one. Her dealings though compassionate, rest on firm foundations of the law, rights and social equity.
