wow good old Manchanda has been missing from the scene for a while now ..
and getting him to do the kanyadaan would be a great idea .. lekin i dont know why my heart is still stuck on geet's own father ya ..
he was a helpless victim of what all happened, and he was after all the man who had the guts to send her away amidst all the pressures and tensions .. he was the man who urged her to live her life her way .. he was the one who risked his own life and forced geet to run away from home .. given their family and the way it functions for him to do this was a huge deal..
Yes Geet's anger was justified when she realised they readily believed she was dead ...
But then, he was the man who called Manchanda and asked him to take care of his beti ...
When Geet was back at HP, Rajji tells her they had all gotten used to living without her, but nothing was mentioned about whether the parents knew she was around .. thats why the story can easily be twisted ..
Marriage for a girl is one of the biggest events of her life, and after all its just been a couple of months since she has left home ...
Anger at times is justified and so is pain .. But i have always believed parents are parents ...!! esp in this case, since Geet's parents were mere helpless victims, they shouldnt be punished ... they have every right to be a part of her happiness ...a rush of impulse would prod us to think and say, they didnt support her.. but does that mean we stop loving those two people who brought us into this world?? i know i am getting a little emotional as i am writing this .. but .. in Geet's case .. i have always had this stance .. that given a choice, Geet's parents would have given her a much better life had they not been the younger ones, and the ones that didnt have that kind of a hold in their family !!
They cannot be punished for this ... Thats not fair ... when geet has to choose a saree, she says, kaash maa hoti ...
In the conf room Geet remembers her darji .. but bringing him in is outta question ..
her father goes out of his way to find out who these Khuranas are ... at the risk and cost of being yelled at in front of outsiders .. He was not allowed the choice of making a choice though he was a male in the household ..
How do we today blame him for it ? Should Mohinderlal be denied the right to give his daughter away and honor her choice?
Should he not be brought in at the last moment to see how happy his daughter is, how well she is doing for herself ?
cant there be an angle added where they were made to believe she was actually dead ??? I dont know .. there is so much more to it ..
At times i wonder what this forum has done to us .. we are ready to say Geet's father and mother are to be equally blamed .. may be... but when we make mistakes dont our parents forgive us ??
Please guys ... lets work towards atleast bringing her real mother and father back at her wedding ... cos no matter what one says .. i think a girl would feel lost and incomplete without her mom and dad at her own wedding ..!!
Sorrry Viju ...
this was not dirrected at you, but i was just venting my feeliings .. tu samajh rahi hai na ? i hope you do .. if ur okay, ill make a sep post of it later iin the day .. bata dee ...i only used ur post as a platforrm to say what i felt meri PKB-JKS partneer ... i had to share these thoughts ... cos they have been running in my head for a while now ..
