Amruta babes, good post.
Gosh girl, we waited for a passionate and wholsesome sequence of G&M, and what are we being informed through the article. CVs sure know how to grip the tension and ride it with eyes wide open and heart racing quicker !!
My points are added without an iota of judgemental attitude and after objective observation.
Let us start with Dev as he is the cause of a lot of speculation with regard to his good versus evil nature and then to the more sensitive issue of forgiveness (as the article reads).
Dev: For the crimes he committed, he has to be punished and I always believe the power of constitutional law without any corrupt underdealings, has to be invoked. No better person than Maan who is very poweful and influential, to deliver this one act.
No to continue on your topic. Dev is shown to be a repentant man who is doing his best to come to terms with the reality of the situation he is now in. He knows the facts of having committed so many vicious deeds and the karmic factor of these actions. He truly repented and cried out that Bro and Geet are suffering his misdeeds. He tried to give advise to reconcile Geet to the agony she is going through. Here I believe repentence is strong in his heart as we see that Abhinav as Dev was doing just that earlier. At least this is what the CVs would want us to believe. He deserves to be judged according to his actions and the process of repentence is life long. And the ensuing difficulties in people understanding him is the karmic effect of his actions. No peace from external sources. He has to find that peace within himself. No acceptance in a jiffy. He has to cope with it and make patience his virtue. Its a fight of his self to the end, a non-violent battle. His only problem is that he can be swayed either way, and needs strong people in his life to influence him. He has a habit of looking for shortcuts, and tires of the long and good path easily (as we have seen him do as Abhinav in early episodes).
Geet has every right to allow her process of thought in the matter. In order that she be free of her own agony of the loss, she needs to clear herself of everything thats catching spider webs in her memory. Inorder to be free of pain, she has to stop giving pain to others. This is wisdom at its best. Foremost its Maan who needs to be given that strength to cope with his pain and her thoughts and she has to allow him through her understanding of the baby she has lost, to express his pain also. She knows both of them are agonizing. Otherwise why would she say that she is sorry that she gave up the baby that papa loved so much (on hospital bed). Maan knew that he had to be there if the baby was to be protected, and he always did just that. Geeto needs to realize this very truth. He accepted her with her past and she has to live this in her heart to the end. She is not to be bound by this but she has to accept this reality. She has to give an ear to Maans wisdom.
If at all, as the article says, she forgives Dev, this has to be dealt with in fullness by dialoguing with Maan first or even immediately after. Just as Maan has internalized his pain and is allowing his wisdom to be spoken to her, she also has to dialogue and express her thoughts to him. He may have stored away the baby things, but he learnt her pain and expressed it later to console her, first by dialogue and then by letter.
Maan understands forgiveness, otherwise he wouldnt ask it for himself from Geet. Maan is a ideal personality. An ideal husband, an ideal lover, an ideal grandson and a very ideal bro who has allowed his objectivity of the situation to deal with Dev. He may find it difficult to forgive Dev but has done so because Dadima has requested. He sees a far fetched wisdom in it. I see Maan full of this character of praiseworthy ideals by which he lives. He wants to share how best to overcome the darkness in their lives.
His only problem lies in the fact that personal life cannot be made a business. In accumulating prime opportunities in his way, he allows himself to exult in grabbing these opport. He gives no time to the opponent or opposing forces to thrive. This cannot be applied in life. Waqt and time needs to be applied for healing in life. Time to live the moments, memories is of prime imp. in healing the scars of life. He has to allow that time. He cannot apply to Geet his methods. Maan has long learnt to store the past, hang it up, and move on. He has not learnt to live the pain, and gradually make them strengths within. He abhors anything that has given him a bad flavor in life.
EACH OF THESE PROTAGONISTS HAVE LESSONS TO LEARN.
AMRUTA, I ENDORSE EVERYTHING YOU SAY. I ENDORSE THAT GEET'S FORGIVENESS IS TO LIBERATE HER, SO THAT SHE IS NO MORE A SLAVE TO HER OLD BAD THOUGHTS WHICH INCLUDE DEV. SHE FREES HERSELF IN CUTTING OFF THE UMBLICAL CHORD OF AN UNFORGIVING ACT BY FORGIVING.
YES AMRUTA, I ALSO AGREE THAT DEV, REQUIRES THAT FORGIVENESS, AS HE REPENTS.
THESE ARE FACTS OF LIFE BUT THE CVS COULD TRANSIT FROM THESE ISSUES AND BECOME VERY FICTIONAL. SO OUR IDEAS ARE LIFES WISDOM BUT THE CVS ARE DEALING WITH FAN FICTION AND FAN MINDS.
Cheers Amruta. Loved your post.
