Coming to ashi....well think she was a revolution...she changed a lot of lives, not least mine....I think she brought out the mischief in me the most....earlier I was all quiet and shy and even though I am still shy and all, yet she has brought out the mischief and the laughter in me...and she has also made me bolder and I am more prone to being braver, bolder and gutsy than I was before ashi.
Ashi was such a refreshing change from the cry babies ruling the roost on tv in those days...I related to her on many levels...from her tom-boyishness to her feeling of being different from everyone else and also her image of having a tough exterior but a soft soft heart inside...I feel I am like her in that context...
Apart from that, just her mere presence on tv...and her dialogues and her attitude and the way she set me rotfl-ing all the time in every episode and also all the unique relationships she had with everyone in the show...were so heart warming....I think she was the only person in the show who had the most unique and different relationships---Leo, Sonia, Ranveer, Yuvi, even her brief friendship with latika, RD sir and many more...and the best of the lot for me was ofcourse her friendship with MP and Vrinda...each of her relationships with these characters was unique and different and so "awwww" inducing
Also one of her chief character traits...her rebellion....her care-a-damn attitude for what people thought about her..and her 'follow your heart' and "be real" mantras and the way she taught that to us in a total non-preachy manner....was inspiration to the core....She cared little for societal norms and she reached out to the "ignored" and "shunned" set of people in college and thats one of the main reasons she is adored so very much..she turned prejudices on their heads in a way. She lived life her own way...ad she lived life king size!
That's not to say she didnthave her flaws and that is also why I love her because her character was so well rounded....she had issues with her mom, she had a great temper, she could lash out suddenly somtimes and hurt people, she was impulsive and made disastrous decisions and many more...which made her character realistic to me and to so many people!
Ashi is that and so much more...to me and to so many other people!
Ashi is inspiration, rebellion, attitude and so much more...and above all, she is real!
She made me wish I was a red-head
And I really want to applaud the original writer of her character who actually ahd the brilliance to frame such an amazing amazing character
and I do not care that we had an "adaptation" of the original because it just goes on to show what a brilliant character and what a brilliant show it is...since the original show Rebeldeway (Argentina) has been to use your (kateleode) word "copied" the WORLD over...tere have been remakes in so many countries apart from India!
There can be no other "remix" and definitely there can be no other "ashi"
harshu ... this is for u ...
I cud NOT have said this any better than u !!!!
