I am not a regular viewer of this serial but do read the updates and watch the episodes sometimes. I only have to say that, think from an Indian family's perspective who are anyways not liking the girl their son has gotten married to ( Leave Kalyani out of this) . Kalyani is well educated and an OB/GYN, she clinically understands a woman's body and emotions too to some extent. But Dadi, the other daughter in law and the father represent an average Indian who would not understand a woman at that emotional level. For them, Nandini had relations with her sister's brother in law and she hid them until now. They have not accepted her anyways so forget about understanding her as a rape victim.
To me, the way Prem found this out was so horrible. And the way he went to bring her back the very next day was very surprising. No matter how much one loves his/her spouse, they all need time to digest the bitter facts of life. This one is real bitter for Prem who always saw Nandini as a quiet docile and shy girl. I appreciate his understanding but at the same time this is not a real life Indian spouse who does not try to get to know the circumstances or the name of teh person.
And Nandini should come out more open and honest with Prem without worrying about the relationship of her sis in law who is just going to be related to Krushna, her own fiance is better than Krushna.
Its very easy to watch the whole story and sympathise with one character as we know that she is the victim but in real life we are the jury who happen to see both sides and most of the times it is difficult to judge as we get biased with our understanding of the characters who need justice from us.
