This is by far the best part of this FF
.It just brought back some old memories from my past when i was facing the same sitaution,i guess majority of students in India go thru such phase in their lives.
Mumbai heat has already affected Dutta tabhi toh aate hi itna gussa ho raha hai.He is really impatient naa,but then i am also like that.when i used to stay in india ,i hated waited for bus ,rather i prefered walking if it was managable.But,more than waiting he was actually upset becaz of Nakku's bad health & Nakku's non-attention was certainly aggrevating this situation.
Nakku & Kalatai meeting was such a heart-warming sight,just like maa-beti.Besides Kalatai was seeing her 1st time after marriage,so naturally both of them were overwhelmed.Its one thing to talk on phones ,but meeting each other face to face brings out the real emotions which cann't be conveyed on phones.Though,as soon as i read the next few lines,i wished kaash ye meet kisi different situation me hota,jahan Kalatai thik se Nakku ki happy married life dekh paati.But,good she is staying for few days,so she will get to see her happiness.But,loved her look at Dutta as if he had something to do with Nakku's sulking face.U know,i sometimes really forget that Dutta is her brother,for her he is more like beti ka pati
Now running away from home is very bad idea sonu.
what if something bad happened,will her family ever get to know.But,then today's teens lack this one quality -TOLARANCE.Bas,jara kuch kisine jor se bol diya toh bura maan lete hai.Kalatai's outburst was completely right from her motherly POV & like any other mom,except her child,everyone else is to be blamed.Same way she to blamed Sonu's teacher.
But,then nobody gave the chance to sonu,so that she can say her side story.I cann't imagine what she must have felt when she was all alone on Raipur station,probably awaiting her family,knowing full well,that they will scold her & nobody is going to defend her.Nakku was in complete shock & pain.She had never expected something like this from Sonu.I felt so bad for her,just now she returned from her honeymoon,spending some happy moments with love of her life & this is what she had to face.But,then such is life naa.
Thank god Leelatai & Dutta were rational about the whole thing.I mean someone had to have calm head while trying to sort the issue.Dutta's initial reaction was justified seeing Sonu's age & besides she is outspoken & smart girl.But,then the way she is been brought up,its difficult to imagine that she will do this for some boy.I loved Leelatai one more time,what a way to show Dutta that when u are in their shoes then only u know where exactly it hurts.But,for a moment Dutta's outburst about his daughter not going to co-ed & no boyfriends brought smile & relief on my face.
Dutta has changed so much in past few months,now we all know that the reason is Nakku.But,for the change to happen ,he too was willing naa.His good qualities were sort of taking sleep,which were awakened by Nakku.I agree with Dutta,if the spring is stretched so much then the rebound effect is always out of control.He quickly saw thru Sonu's inner rebel which could come out any moment.I felt slightly disappointed by Nakku.I mean she is the one who always handle every situation calmly & here without giving chance to Sonu,she to started making her feel guilty.But,then again i could she her sisterly concern for her well-being.
The convo. between Nakku & Dutta brought out some of the things which other wise were hidden.Dutta till date never knew she wanted to study history .He knew she left studies becaz of her 2 siblings,but to waht extent she had let go things in her life,he had no idea.I was in tears thruout reading this.Between the form & her brother's color box,she chosed later & for how much rupees just 20
.Her comments about all the rates of rashan just made me wonder what tough life it is for the people who have to decide between food & study.
Pet ki bhookh hamesha gyan ki bhookh se badkar hoti hai
I was very angry with Dutta's harsh comments about nobody had asked her for sacrifice.It was so easy for him naa,he always got everything he wanted.waise bhi sacrifice & being eldest sibilng goes hand in hand.It is always directly or indirectly pointed to the elder one that he/she has to understand,do the samjhota.If by chance no one points,then it is their own conscience which make them sacrifice & for that they don't expect any returns.Becaz it is their choice.May be sometime later on in their life they regret ,but that doesn't mean they want any returns.Haan ,par ye bhi sahi hai ki kabhi kabhi jab bade kuch sacrifice karte hai toh ,they wish that their younger one appreciate their gesture verbally or may be thru their behaviour.This expection don't make the elder sibling selfish.This is strictly my POV,becaz i am elder one in my family
But,to certain extent Dutta is right,Nakku cann't dream on behalf of Sonu.She can dream for her happiness ,but the route or the path to that happiness is Sonu's choice,Nakku can be her guide if she wish,but not the decision maker.Dutta had echoed today's generations thoughts so well thru hsi words.Hats off Shilpi,i wonder how much research u had done to right such meaningful words.
Despite Sonu's naivity,i was impressed by her clear mind & much clear thoughts.She is so focused & sure about her dance ability .The way she said about science being the only thing in parents mind,is right till date,becaz it still helps u earn stable job & good future.I liked the way Dutta was talking with her considering her as an adult.For the 1st time ,she felt she too has voice of her own,her opinion do matter.I am not saying Nakku or Kala don't listen to her,but then the way Dutta gave her freedom was different.I could understand her desire & her surity to pursue dance in her words.I also liked the fact that Dutta told her that he will help her ,but for that 1st she had to complete her 12th.Education is also necessary naa.Besides afer 12th only u can choose the faculity u want to pursue.
Nakku heard their talk,i hope she heard complete convo.warna aur ek problem ho jayegi.
Dutta still smokes,tilluji how much ever u change deo or anything,she is ur aardhangini,u cann't hide from her.Ab toh aap gaye kaam se.LOL at his comment about military training
Once again,hats off to u
