Nakusha's faith vs Dutta's cynicism

I really dunno why I'm writing this, but just had to get it all out!
I remember reading a thread on Tuesday or Wednesday, about Naku's silence. Sorry, forgot who had posted it. It's been on my mind all week, and so I thought I'd write about that and a few other things.
When Naku first came to know about Kala, I thought she'd retaliate, speak out and try and expose Kala to Dutta! We all feel he needs to know the truth, this time atleast. I was apprehensive, coz I knew that Dutta wouldn't believe Naku. And Kala would as usual twist the truth and make Naku look like the worst kind of liar. Naku surprised me by doing what no other soap heroine has done. She hasn't exposed Kala, she hasn't retaliated, she hasn't tried to find out what Kala's upto! Instead she's fighting her battle her way.
Naku's faith defines her. She is one character we've called superstitious, silly, and utterly ridiculous at times. There've been moments we felt that she isn't worthy of Dutta. With all his emotional complexities, he deserves a woman who'll equal him, in every sense. Naku, with her quiet patience, simply pales in front of him. Naku is in no way the firebrand Seema was, or the cunning go-getter Supriya was. She is something else.
She's got this quiet dignity to her, something that makes her far superior to Kala. She's a doormat when it comes to Dutta, as in we've questioned her apparent lack of self-respect after the scenes where she took his abuse silently, even defended him. I've wanted to shake her and ask her, tum kis mitti ki bani ho, Nakusha? If I were in her place, I'd have left that man for disbelieving me and my love! But she has prevailed. So has her love.
She's foiled every evil plan, without even raising a finger. Deflected every danger that has come her husband's way, set right every wrong, outlived every accusation. She is a superwoman, and that I'd say even if I hadn't seen the scene where she drove the jeep. I've said this before, it takes faith of a different kind to be able to believe in something with all your heart. Faith so powerful that it makes cynics pray! She has been blessed with it. With all her naivety and blind superstition, she also possesses a heart that's chaste. Her faith is untouched by cynicism or hatred. All she knows is to love, and to fight for goodness. Even in the moments she challenges Kala, it's not because she hates her or wants her defeat. It is because she loves Dutta, with all her being.
Now, Dutta deserves someone as complex as him. Instead, he has this woman whose essence is simplicity. And yet, he's lost in her, finding something new about her everyday, falling a little more in love with her everyday. This woman has intrigued him like no one else. And herein lies the answer. Dutta's all tangled up, and this paradox is what is setting him free, from the chains that bind him. She has, in all her simplicity, enchanted him. He has been enraptured by her, from the first meeting. He admitted it. Even during the earliest days, he's treated her differently. Staked his claim on her, branded her in a hundred different ways, unknowingly. Deep down, it's been her he always wanted. The peace she has brought him everytime she smiles, the way she clears his muddled thoughts with her advice or comforting words, he's always wanted it.
They say it takes something powerful yet intrinsically simple to unlock the greatest of mysteries. And so, it has taken a girl as simple as Naku to bring Dutta down to his knees. She has, with her unswerving love and faith, humbled him. He's realized that his hatred and cynicism are no match for her love. She is the answer to all the prayers he's never voiced. Now he will know that all the pain he's known, all the darkest nights he's spent alone, it was all so that he could be worthy of a love so magnificient. A love so chaste and intense that he will be awed, overwhelmed by his own response to it. For he believes that he has no love in him. This woman, will set all his fears free, unlock every dark chamber in his soul, and he will love her with passion and longing, the way a man is meant to love a woman!

WOW....CAn i say WOW?

How do you do it 1 at night?....write something so beautiful...Oh liz...i think when you'll fall in'll love like's just how you see things that makes your post beautiful.

Ok..coming to post. bang on again..nakku is so unlike what dutta had seen all his life that he couldn't help himself from loving her more eachday....and therein lies the jeopardy...he saw her as unfalliable and pure and put her in a pedestal and when her truth came out he felt that pedestal crumpled...

but little did he know..that nakku didn't love him to rise on pedestals..she loved him because her heart told her to love him...because she saw wht others like seema and supriya couldn' integrity and honesty that looked and judged things beyond their face value...She called him her chand...that in itself should be telling about her love for him...She doesn't even have to do anything special to make him fall in love with her again now...she is just being herself, honest,simple, chaste and innocent of worldly wiles and he can't stop himself from falling head over heels again..he said he didn't want to see her face..didn't want food from her hands..
look at him now..he can't can't see her..her face just stays in his mind like a fixature... he still searches her out albeit with traces of anger and hurt(which i saw mellowing last week)...he can't eat anything that she had not touched..only being fed by her fills him..
and all these without even trying for it...that's power of her love.

Dutta....we call him a gadha...but really is he a gadha.?...he knew how to show his love without the flowery words...he knew how to defend her honor when his sister called her names...he knew how to believe his wife's character before she asked him...he just didn't erase those questions when the time came..he nipped any doubts that might have crossed anyone's mind when suresh came to him with that pic...his anger when he talked to his mother about the reason for being angry with nakkusha seemed justified to me....its not easy to forget the hurt that the one person whose trust you craved the most didn't trust your love enough...but then...he has not yet counted on the fact that where nakku was concerned his heart was just not his was hers...just like her heart had always been his to protect, to wound, to love and to cherish...he had done it all to if she did a little of that hurt back with all the love and can he complain?

but there lies the difference between their love...nakku's love silently endures till the dam overflows and washes away his anger...duttta's love burns so deep and fierce that its intensity burns him and in the process bruises him some making him lash out in pain...

but both the kind of love is great in its own and fire.....candle and the moth...

Incredible post, Liz!!! Clap
After reading your post and Shilpita's comment, my admiration for Nakusha has been reinforced yet again. I feel the same way about Naku's simplicity - I love her silent strength and overwhelming love for Dutta. Hers is an honest love, deep and true. No matter what life throws at her, she'll bear it all for Dutta's sake and fight adversity in her own way to protect him...
What remains to be seen is how long Dutta is able to fight his fate...How long until the last brick in the wall crumbles?

It's beyond me how and why anyone can think that Nakku's 'lack of complexity' makes her unworthy of Dutta's really is. If Dutta is complex, does it mean that someone worthy of him should also be just as complex? If Nakku had issues that ran as deeply and sorely as Dutta's do, how would she ever be able to be what she is to him? If she was a firebrand with overwhelming attitude, how could she ever be the balm that promises to soothe his wounds, the peace to his restlessness, the wisdom to his impulsive, reflexive nature? If she was as scarred an individual as Dutta, how would he ever look beyond the mire he himself is in to heal and complete her? To say that Nakku is bland or lacks complexity is unfair too, because she has problems, she has different facets, she makes mistakes as well...and for that, there is a Dutta for her, whose being is a foil that completes her, gives her reassurance and love and the security which she has vied for all her life, just as she completes him in return. She is more sorted than him and maybe that comes across as too 'simple' in front the maze that is Dutta, but her sortedness helps him sort himself. He needs her calmness and silence and a trust like that to work through his hurdles. If they were both the same, how could they ever become a 'whole'? 

Many people read into her silence and inaction as weakness...I think she is an incredibly smart woman, without even trying to be one. She is assertive, she knows when to push (cliff/charitr scene) and when to retreat and let time work its way. There's a reason why she is the only one who has been able to get through to him while all of the Patils, Baaji Rao, and even Surpriya couldn't do so in numerous years. The way these two characters have been written, they solve each other...and just as much as Nakku gives to this relationship, Dutta also gives in his own unprecedented way. There is no question of worth between them.

Well said everyone! Naku is all what Dutta always wanted...a simple girl...But because he found her so late she and he have to battle the prejuidices and deep rooted fears he has built over the years.
