A beautiful young girl with glitter eyes weaving a fairytale on the ashes of a man's past whom she is destined to love and get broken to pieces. A princess who permanently sits on pink fluff clouds a la Juliet , transported to another world of romance , poetry and happily-ever-afters by a man who no longer believes in love. And as she sits waiting for her Prince Charming , her innocence doesn't know that she will have to be a lady-in-shining-armour to the man whom she is beginning to love , whose magical voice flutters her heart and knocks at the vaults of her feelings. Today, that's Dr. Shilpa Malhotra for you.
A graceful, sensitive , evolved and happy young wife who lives her love for her husband whom she has come to love, respect , protect and hold as precious as her life. She has surrendered herself to the man who stood by her through her worst , bore with her through her ugliest and gave her hope and life when she had convinced herself this was the end. She handles her past with tender care , hugs her present with a love that knows no words and looks forward to her future with her husband. She is a woman who may not have lived life on her own terms and done her share of blunders , but when life hugged her , she screamed back from ever fiber of her existence ' I love you. That's Dr. Riddhima Siddhanth Modi for you.
A carefree spoilt rich brat from the palatial houses of USA who got transformed into a man of word , man of responsibility and man of honour as soon as a wounded woman stepped into his life like a hurricane. He hated her , he fought with her , he hurt her and then, in that one reckoning moment that separates lions from lambs , he married her , knowing fully well that he maybe destroying his life. But his wife fell in love with his goodness and soul purity that could melt mountains. She made him believe in her and he made her believe in his love for her ' a love which came after a trip to the worst roads that life can send you to. And now this child-man , merging Peter Pan with Dumbledore walks this earth a happy man ' his original purity still untarnished. That's Dr. Siddhanth Modi for you.
A dreamboat in motion ' a merchant of love and dreams straight out of a poet's most cherished work , he stands for everything that symbolizes love in all it's beauty. A man of a million roses and very few thorns , he is the stuff that fairytales in books are made of. He has always tried to see only what is beautiful and lovely in life and he invested all his beauty and heartbeats in a woman. And today , when she belongs to her healer , he smiles at her face , hops around with her husband but holds on to that time gone by in quiet dark corners. Being the man that he is , he tells that woman and her husband everyday that he is happy and that he has moved on. Little does he know that he cannot move on until he has somebody to embrace , hug , love and splash in rainbow waters with once again. And as he kicks that used coke can on a lonely dark road, a beautiful princess with glitter eyes gets under his skin ' to force him to hope again , live a new lifetime that is beautiful. That is Dr. Armaan Malik for you'..
What flawed and amazingly beautiful people. Aren't they?
Well, what is there to say about today's episode? It was resonant and resounding enough for the sensitive , sensible and soul-o-holics to understand'.Whatever the episode stood for has been summed up in my take in the characters above. Still'.
Armaan is letting go off all the dreams , hope , beauty and love that he stood for because what he dreamt of is somebody else's reality now. He cries in corners , lowers his eyes in denial at the mention of what SR share and is beginning to hate the very idea of love ' he is only human' understandable. But unknowingly , the ashes of what he is burning are creating a mirror image Armaan in Shilpa who is falling in love with him and is consumed by this lover with a magical voice. And as Armaan gets filled with fury and a vacuum believing that he will perhaps never feel again , Shilpa is diving deeper into the waters that she thinks can be nothing but beautiful. Infact , today , while reading Armaan's letters ,she closed her eyes, trying to feel him'. She became the voice of his heart as he had a conversation with Riddhima about Sid, Shilpa and what has gone by. Armaan thinks he has gotten rid of all that was lovely but no'.... he has just passed on that beauty and passionate intensity to Shilpa and one fine day , all this will come back to him with full force through Shilpa reminding him that fate has her own designs but we can never kill the original us. After all, didn't Riddhima say that Shilpa was Armaan's female version?
Siddhanth learnt to keep friendship and his profession apart and it was good to see him in that avatar ' that is the beauty of this man. You want to see him at his best? Pile him up with responsibilities and see the man behind the boy unfold. And little did this man know that in some corner of Sanjivani , his darling wife is talking about him fondly , glowing in his love , as she sits next to her past dream and her present friend Armaan.It is because she believes in herself , in her marriage and in Sid's love that she can sit comfortably with Armaan and talk over anything and everything under the sun ' ...be normal. All this strength and sensibility has come from the faith and hope that Sid has filled her up with by telling her how much he loves her and taking her home. And because her present is so beautiful and her future so gloriously hopeful with Sid , she can look back at her past with fondness , a big smile and wish him well. Love gives you faith and the continuous reassurance of it that every morning when you get up , he fills you with a tenderness that moves your soul gives you the strength to face anything. Riddhima can be normal with Armaan today because Sid is right next to her '. Or rather slipped onto her finger.
Shilpa, Riddhima, Sid'. All three of them make such a beautiful picture today. Armaan does not . Here's why'.
Yes, Armaan should move on '. BUT HOW? Now, you'll say that if Riddhima could move on with Sid , why can't he'. THAT'S THE CATCH ' " WITH SID". When Riddhima was at her breakpoint , with no wish to see the next morning sun , Siddhanth Modi came to her life ' forced her to feel , even if it was anger and hatred , took her life by a storm , held her hand like a saviour , stood by her through thick and thin , married her , affected her to an extent that she began to feel sunshine and he became the anchor that she holds to till date for her dear life. He healed her and as time went by , she realized that Sid is the center of her universe , her new life and that's how she came to love him and live again'. As Lennzie, says, the woman Armaan sees today is Siddhanth's Riddhima , put back to life brick-by-brick, thread-by-thread.
And Armaan? Whom does he have? What does he have? NOBODY and NOTHING. There is nobody to listen to him , to hear him vent out how he feels inside , to help him deal with what is no longer there. There is nobody to hold his hand , heal him , keep him in an embrace so that he stops crying. Not to forget Armaan has never been emotionally stable owing to his childhood. This is the reason that he is running in this vicious circle of moving on and not moving on. There is no anchor in his life , just radars that are going off everywhere.He needs roots once again to find an emotional footing from where SR appear as beautiful to him as they do to Shilpa.
Shilpa is that anchor , she is in Armaan's life what Sid is in Riddhima's life. But it will take time'.she is under Armaan's skin and she has attacked RAW Armaan and that exactly is his road to recovery. And as CZ says , once Armaan crosses that heartbreak bridge , his story with Riddhima will appear a saga of some other lifetime to him.
I know many SR fans were upset when Armaan said that SR had no love story , just marriage but we must not forget that Armaan was not around to witness the SR story , he has no idea what happened between them and how they have evolved into what they are today. He doesn't know their profound history and hence his refusal or rather denial to acknowledge the depth that the SR bond has. It's not that Armaan doesn't know that SR love each-other '. He does' and he has witnessed some deep moments between them but for now , he'd rather not think about it. Armaan is NOT alright and that's why his worst behaviour comes out with Shilpa , that's why he goes on a defensive with Sid in the elevator and that is why Riddhima tells him to take care of himself.
Lastly, if Sid could teach a shattered Riddhima to live again, then, Shilpa is made of similar silks. She will teach Armaan to be Armaan again and after that just as Riddz knows no life without Sid , he will not know a single day without Shilpa. When healers come , they take over your entire being.
Love and luck always to everyone,
GOD bless everyone.

Oh my God, what an artistic way of analyzing the emotion that each of the protagonist is playing.
You have a dissecting/ inquisitive brain and also a flare to write. These two together is dangerously contagious.
Your post captivates me and I get lost in your words of wisdom which only a wise person can write.
