They simmer in ways I cannot explain
For that which I cannot claim
I seek not the quenching of the flesh

My vision blurs and from the corners of my eyes
A shadow passes he's in disguise
Life has chosen to withhold those ties
It will come I only have to wait
Patience; then I will surrender to my fate.
She has watched on as relationships broke. She fears yet another loss. She fears being instrumental in causing pain to the only person who stood by her, who taught her to live and ultimately became her life. She is finally ready to accept her fate, ready to watch on as another relationship breaks. "Aur Yeh Rishthe Ko Bhi Tutthe hue dekhoongi.", says she.
He has been asking her what the matter was, why she was so upset. He wanted to be given a chance to wipe her tears, break her fears and bring back her smile. Instead, he heard these words uttered from her mouth and, he felt like a wounded lion because he was under the impression that she was referring to their own relationship owing to the fact that she has asked him to leave her alone, has been avoiding him, and has been refusing to share her fears and concerns with him.
As she uttered these hurting words and started to leave, he stopped her and started a dance full of passion and pain. Each movement was meant to remind what he means to her and more importantly, what she means to him. He invoked her passion for him, reminded her that he is always there to hold her when she falls, and swayed her to the tune of his love.
Even as the passion is getting invoked in her, she is still burning with the anticipated pain of her beloved when he watches yet another relationship with his family breaking away. She is still blinded by the fear of seeing him cut off from his entire family the way she herself got cut off from her own family. The pain is still raw in her and she gently pushed away his hands and started to move away from him. His eyes at this were full of painful questions that remained unanswered. What happened that makes her walk away from him? What can he do to take her back in his arms and make her feel at peace? His eyes seem to say - How can I ever keep you safe from any hurt, my precious?
The moment she walks away she realizes what she has done. She realizes how her walking away can hurt him more than the hurt from which she is trying to shield him. She runs back to him to give him the assurance that it is not him that she is walking away from.
His eyes still hold the same unanswered questions. They express so well what the lyrics of the song behind depict:
Judd ke bhi tu mujhse juda sa
Milke bhi tu kyu hai khafaa sa
Aaja meri baaho me aaja re
She finally finds solace in his embrace. He lifts her up in his arms, makes her feel secure by seating her on his lap and then gently reminds her of her former words of wisdom uttered during a more happier time. She then realizes his dilemma and clears his doubts by telling him that it is not their relationship she was referring to. She is not able to share anything else beyond this and runs away as the pain becomes unendurable for her. He, being the smart fellow that he is, goes on to find out what is bothering her by reflecting on and putting together bygone moments of observation and conversation.
Today's dance is full of passion and pain, depicting a oneness amongst a range of emotions. It stands out on its own and reminds us of the splendor of the Kurba Hua days. Where as Kurba Hua was a dance of anger and infatuation, today's Mahi Mahi dance is a dance of pain and passion. I hope you have all enjoyed it as much as I did. Thanks for taking the time to go through my post.
i also felt the pain associated with passion in this dance which makes it different from KH. There were different emotions. Both GC and DD did a fab job
