I'm glad you've sort of depicted a whole shopping list of focal dialogues and key ideas regarding Viren. Prior to the supposed "evil" Viren revelation, we'd all like gush and be in total awe as to how supportive/protective/on a mission our Viren is or how he's on some deeper hidden agenda to give Nivi the justice she is ever so worthy of. Post revelation, however, I think we're all unjustly bogged down by the fact that Viren is "traumatizing" Nivi so much so that, I feel, we've been blinded from actually thinking about some of the discrepancies as you have portrayed- be it Viren's dialogues, his attitude towards Nivi and solely Nivi, and ofcourse the quite salient hints of remorse, hurt, gloom and melancholy observable during the round table discussions and family gatherings. I mean clearly those odd behaviours have to attributed to him being a victim of injustice courtesy of his kin and that too at a very critical age, developmentally speaking. And really I wouldn't venture to elaborate on the portrayal of exactly how he could have been victimized because, really, by now it should have been a dogma that Viren fell prey to childhood abuse. End of. There's been too many posts and discussions on this and I, for one, am proud to be one of the many proponents of this theory. What's critical to pint out here is the fallacy here in tagging Viren as being the perpetrator of traumatizing, abusing, victimizing, hurting Nivi. It seems that we all agree that there could be extenuating circumstances that could possibly explain Viren's behaviour, yet we all can't seem to do away with the whole Viren "traumatizing" Nivi bit. Even the articles seem to have splayed the same message across their pages so I really wouldn't blame the readers here. To be honest and succint, I am going to vociferous in my condemnation of this prevailing notion- I disagree. I suppose I have been rambling about this in my previous posts as well and really didn't need t go about reiterating on this issue again but sometimes I feel I totally have to. The reason for my outcry (literally) today is the article that came out yesterday regarding the whole new twist this coming week etc etc. My first reaction after reading the article was that of jubilance- I was pumped, psyched and seemed to have gotten all more the reason to procrastinate. Not that I am not on a high anymore or anything, infact I seem to have gotten even more impatient and anxious...so much so that I am beginning to question my sanity
I have I-dont-know-how-many tests to cram for and here I am on Naveen Baji's YT channel revisiting the ever colorful NivRen moments. Not to digress or anything, but we're close to 15k views for the Doli Saja ke segment w00t! Anyway, back to the point. Yeah so I was/am excited because I wanted NIVI to find out the truth herself, CONFRONT Viren herself. But I want her to confront him in a way that he finds more appreciative for him to actually reveal his true, I wouldn't say intentions, but SELF. Like I don't want Nivi getting the shock of her life, and Viren finding ways to circumnavigate around the issue and try to like give some sort of a bad explanation about it trying to maintain his "innocence" in the matter. Viren is battling with himself inside. On one hand, he can't do without Nivi's love and on the other hand he has to put through all this. I know that he never meant any direct harm for Nivi- it's impossible. Yet, he had to resort to certain measures in his effort to fulfill an agenda. As I've been saying in the past, I'm pretty sure it has to do Nivi being his childhood love and the very fact that he can't see anyone toying with her feelings then getting away it (hint hint Mr Sid) with a substantial portion coming from the whole childhood abuse, negligence and deprivation of love or family support. What Viren needs right now is almost like a confirmation on a paper that if anyone, Nivi LOVES him, will stay by his side come what may. Hence, it's crucial that Nivi approaches Viren with caution who I assume will be scared to death thinking Nivi, like others, will leave and run away knowing the truth. Heh, I actually found one the threads on the forum quite ironic since it read : "It's upto Viren now" or summat and I couldn't but stifle at the irony. I mean I'm sure the content of the thread was great (I actually didn't happen to read it unfortunately as I was pressed for time) but it was just the title in the context of what I was thinking at that juncture that had me really shaking my head. Anyhow, so yeah, it is all in NIVI'S hand now and I'm pretty darn sure she'll understand and will see through the fact her trauma, her troubles are/were nothing compared to what Viren had gone through from the time he was supposed to be happily playing around with toys and beaming in reverence of his family's love and support. To my mind, it's absolutely essential Nivi doesn't let any feelings of her "trust being broken" get the best of her. She has to think through this, decide and pledge upon finding the REASONS for Viren's behaviour. If she truly believes Viren can NEVER hurt her, then I'd say she's good to go. I know she wouldn't go about pointing fingers at Viren, she doesn't need to instigate him because that will only make matters worse. The fact that she knows and appreciates that Viren loves her is enough to make Viren spill the beans. After all, that's what Viren needs. LOVE. Hence, the reason for my insanely jubilant mood
because I TRUST BOTH Nivi and Viren and I know - or really really really hoping for - that after an initial shock, Nivi will approach Viren with caution and a true desire to know as to why, knowing that he loves her, yet still he felt it necessary to take such measures. The answer I am hoping he gives will ofcourse be something along the lines of his undying love for Nivi, moulding out a new Nivi, and to make anyone who dares toy around with her to bear the brunt of his anger muahahahahaha
Oh and of course, before anyone throws the question as to why he needed to put Nivi through the whole "trauma/torture", let me first start by telling it wasn't a "trauma/'torture", well not if you think about the whole intricacies and not be fooled by what appears on the surface. This was needed, honestly. It was absolutely necessary for Nivi to realize that there is something known as an inner strength and that certain circumstances deem it necessary that you be steadfast and strike through the obstruction rather than succumb under the pressure. It was important to let her face her fears and come out of it. Questions need to asked when one is victimized of injustice. In a way, he was making her more resistant and willfull. And honestly these are not like fancy made up idea. Infact, I am going to throw some psyhcological principles at you guys again
, psychological phobias of many kind are treated just this way i.e by actually exposing the patient to the very same fears he is apprehensive of and then go about making him realize the fallacy of his beliefs. So yeah I mean I rest my case.
If you've been following this post of mine closely then you must be wondering as to what my second reaction was after reading the infamous article. Well, it was something along the lines of um being mad? And that's because the author resorted to explaining Viren's behaviour as "traumatizing" Nivi when he clearly is/was not due to the reasons I mentioned above. Not only that, but the whole forum seems to have developed the very same notion which I just felt I need to say something about. I am by no means saying I am going to be right, because sadly I am not the script writer or one of them CTs
but yeah I mean I am almost certain about my radical ideas
because they definitely do sound way more appealing *bats eyelashes* and I dunno I guess appreciative to a person like me who has lately been doing anything but think about NivRen
So yeah I mean in a nutshell, I'm REALLY looking forward to next week
If only I didn't all those midterms lined up
And IF ONLY this stupid weekend goes by at jetspeed...Ooh jetspeed remember? The jetspeed couple?
Ok I shall stop
Adios my fellow denizens of this thread...I say good day!
PS: Mucho sorry for the insanely long post
