Tu hai toh tedhi medhi raahein ulti pulti baatein seedhi lagti hai
Tu hai toh jhoote moote vaadein dushman ke iraade sacche lagte hai
Jo dil mein taare vaare de jaga woh tu hi hai tu hi hai
Jo rotey rotey de hasa
Tu hi hai wahi
Jaane kyun jaane kyun dil jaanta hai
Tu hai toh I'll be all right

~A Jagdish-Anandi Appreciation Thread~
Anandi is the protagonist of Balika Vadhu , a bubbly and vivacious girl .The only child of her parents , Anandi has lots of love and affection showered on her , and leads a perfect life.However,all that changes drastically when , at the age of eight , she is married off to an equally young boy in accordance with the system of child marriage still prevalent in parts of India , and , at the age of eleven , sent to her in-laws because of her mother's fears and insecurity.Now Anandi must adjust to life in a completely different environment : new people,new relationships and heavy responsibilites , while no longer having the care and support of her parents . A monumental task for a eleven year old , but the burden is somewhat lightened because of the friendship and bond she develops with her beendh , Jagdishya .
The only boy in his family , Jagdish , fondly called Jagdishya and Jagya , is pampered and fussed over by everyone in his family , and his Dadi-saa in particular.Thus , at nine , he is as big a spoilt brat as you can ever find.But the stubborn and moody Jagya meets his match , literally and metaphorically , in his feisty lugaai Anandi , who is as pampered as him , and just as headstrong , in her own way.Jagdishya fully expects his life to be made even more difficult now , with the addition of a new enemy , but as it turns out , the nakchari chuhiya only smoothens it out , and becomes his playmate,homework-doer and best friend.
.:.Jagdish and Anandi a.k.a JaAn .:.
When Jagdishya gets married to a bandariya named Anandi from a neighbouring village,the initial euphoria of new clothes,good food and numerous gifts dies out soon when he finds out that he is expected to live with that bandariya , and take care of her , for his entire life !
And when Anandi comes to what her mother calls her saasraa,the biggest thorn in her side is her beendh Jagdishya , a nakta and akdoo bandar , who makes faces at her whenever his Dadi-saa looks the other way and in general , persists in making life hell for her.And , to top that , Dadi-saa wont even let her eat until she serves him !
A series of pranks,scoldings and tears later , a transistor and an offer to help with homework marks the beginning of the cutest relationship ever on television.Though Jagdish and Anandi are formally beendh and beendhni , their relationship is perhaps everything but that : classmates,student and teacher,in Dadi-saa's eyes Mischief-maker-in-chief and her Deputy,and best friends,of course.
For a couple whose combined ages total 25 years , Jagdish and Anandi are remarkably mature in their own way , because they stand by each other whenever the other is in trouble.This thread is dedicated to
Jagdish and Anandi , and the unique chuhiya-bandar relationship .
