"Behind a strong hatred, there has to be a strong love". As mentioned beforein the topic of "Viren's mental burdens", this sort of hatred can only arise from a strong love, which underwent a massive pain before. I guess is Viren loves Sid now also because if Sid had not mattered anything to him, he would not have come back with this plan of revenge, His whole mind is revolving around Sid. Today, Vandana said that Viren, as a child , though quiet, used to run after Sid always and wanted to become like his elder brother always. A misunderstanding creeped in and Viren's love for Sid did not meet his expectation. Could be he did something wrong, and Sid did not side with him and child Nivedita sided with Sid saying that "Sid is right", and the end result was he being sent to boarding school. His love turned into hatred for Sid.
and now who is to be blamed: I guess, no one yet everyone.
DS is not a criminal, so he does not have ulterior motif against Viren. Sometimes, parents think taking a strong decision, will benefit the child. DS probably tried to do that for Viren. But, if after that incident, child Viren did not want to come home for vacation, DS should have intervened and tried to pacify the matter. I think he failed to feel the gravity of the situation.
Sid and Viren: A very loving elder-younger brother relationship was nipped at the bud. What they coould have grown, but what they grew up into? Definitely Viren will realsie that the path he is walking is not good, but when he realises, he will be too late. He will never be able to justify that he tried to frame Sid or use Nivedita. And he has to live with this guilt through out his life. Sid also would live with a guilt, but since that was done in the childhood, he would still have a consolation. But Viren will always bear this guilt that he schemed and planned against the family.
What could have been the solutions:
1. from DS's part, he should have understood the gravity of the situation and tried to bring back Viren many many years back and try to give so much love to Viren, that he forgets all his pain.
2. Adult Viren: he is a normal human being, he should not have schemed or planned, but should have severed relationships with these people. And explained to them that his severing ties is because of the treatment he got in his childhood. Schemes and plans cannot be justified. HE has every right to get upset, and should have told all these on their face, rather than scheming and planning.
whoever reads this post:
this post is not to demean the character Viren, but to discuss his child psychology, and what should his action be as an adult! Like the movie "Shakti" of amitabh bachchan, where he hated his father throughout his life, but very late he admitted that he really could never hate him, as he loves him a lot.
