Update - 6th August 2009, Thursday
Continues from yesterday. Kasthuri tells Dhanam that she had been to her house and her MIL had spilled the beans. Wants to know why such a big problem was not brought to their Dad's or her notice. Dhanam did not want to burden others, so had kept the matter to herself. kasthuri wants to know what transpired between them to bring such a situation. And likens the punidhamaana husband wife relationship to a mirror, whoever breaks the damage- the loss is done. Dhanam says her husband did not treat her as his wife, still she lived with him for a year... ( TK.. engeyO kaNakku udhaikkudhu..seriya calculate paNNu man !) she walked out only when she realised her husband did not understand her at all. That he kept supporting his mother all the time. Kasthuri tells when Dhanam mentions as his mother- it should be also Dhanam's fault, neither did she say athai, my MIL nor treat her as her mother. Time for flashback... Dhanam is cooking, her MIL comes and asks if she had her bath because it is amavasai and have to do padayal for her husband. Dhanam "the enlightened" says that she is yet to bathe and that manasu should be suththam to do the padayal. This turns out to be an argument between MIL and DIL. Dhanam comes all dressed up and invites her MIL to do the prayers, MIL refuses, saying how can she keep that food as padayal. Neither will she keep it as padayal nor will she eat it herself. Dhanam leaves for work in a huff.
Dhanam's husband Shiva comes home and sees his mother reading a book. Enquires why she did not have her lunch. Mummy replies she had a tummy a upset, he further probes. Dhanam comes in and says her MIL is upset because she cooked before her bath. Shiva shuts her up and tells he will talk to his mother. Dhanam says she will talk because they are urutting her head. Shouts at her for not adjusting and asks her to go inside. Dhanam says she will go but out - packs her bag, picks her son and leaves. Shiva tries to stop her but in vain.
Back to the present. Our vaathu says she would deal with it. Asks for details of Shiva and her son. Shiva is working in a hospital in Poonthamalli and the son is in a boarding school. kasthuri makes a trip to meet Shiva. Shiva recognises her, says it is the first time he is seeing her after the facial transplantation. Enquires about each other's well being. kasthuri mentions of her visit to his house and of his mother's intention to get him re-married. He did not want to send the divorce notice. Shiva says he is not at fault, Dhanam is the only wife in his life. Says Dhanam is good but she does not have the sagipputhanmai. Everyday quarrel between his mother and wife although as individuals they are good. He tells Dhanam to adjust because she has age on her side, she must be able to understand better. If he tells his mom it would be difficult for her to adjust and has nowhere to go. As a son he has duties too ! Again flashback, Shiva goes in search of Dhanam, comes home and asks his mother if Dhanam returned. Says he is not able to locate her... his mother says she will come back because she cannot find an yemaaLi like him. Shiva shouts at his mom saying that she always talks wrong about Dhanam, both of them make a mountain out of a molehill..that she should treat Dhanam as her daughter...if something happens to Dhanam then both sonny and mommy will have to go to the abacus school. back to present... Shiva asks Kasthuri how can he send his mother to an old age home..then he would be a sinner in God's eyes.. Kasthuri wants to know if Dhanam wanted to send her to an old age home, Shiva negates. Says that we reap what we sow... only if they take care of his mother, tomorrow their son would take care of them. He changed his job because Dhanam said she would do so if he did not. Kasthuri asks why he did not mention this to her dad or her, Dhanam said she would commit suicide if he did says Shiva.
Vaathu comes home, and DG kusalam visarruchufies about Dhanam. Vaathu lies to him saying that Shiva takes care of her on a golden platter. DG says he is very happy that all his SILs are very good. He was worried about Kasthuri only, her life is also well settled now...
