Sesky, I like your style! What a great discussion. Thanks for showing us your POV on Ahem. I personally think, like Shelley, that he's fighting his feelings for Gopi. I can only imagine what it would be like to have an arranged marriage, let alone a marriage to someone who cries all the time! He's not perfect and neither is she. Somehow, they need to mature enough to meet in the middle.
Favorite comments from your post:
1. I also agree that there are values other than education, clearly, that make a person. Infact, I would never suggest that educated people='good' peopLE. That's preposterous, I mean, just look at the worlds leaders....
2. When you're lumped with someone who's basically the antithesis of verything you'd have looked for ina life partner, and then on top of that the life partner doesn't exactly mke things easier by proving the contrary, that she does have something to offer, and instead is basically a monotone, cookibg, cleaning machine on autoplay, then I can understand. This baffled me too. Yes, she's pretty and demure. That's two pluses. She cries non stop. That's 10 gajillion minuses. :)
3. I fully expect Ahem to 'magically' fall in love with Gopi, and for the show to vindicate that yes, Gopi, being the perfect bharatiya naari of self sacrifice was the victim all along, and big bad Ahem was the villain all along for not recognizing the 'gem' he had right infront of her. Why is it that we all like to tie everything up into nice, neat little packages? Real life sometimes sucks! I guess that's why we watch the show. It's an escape mechanism from our real lives.
At any rate, I've enjoyed this discussion and would love to hear more members' points of view on this...
