I thought of writing a post defending Talli, seeing as she gets a lot of flack for being annoying. When Talli was young she thought of Kesar as her best friend and tried to prevent him from doing the wrong thing. Kesar used to take a bit of advantage of her sometimes but Talli tolerated it. The girl got a family and mother who loves her like anything after her father passed away, she would have been happy with just that. But Gulaal the great had to tell her when she was very very young and had just lost her father that she will never have to go to another house after marriage because Gulaal promises to marry her to Kesar.
Obviously this is a very strong thing to say - Talli was so young and has now grown up for the last 10 years thinking of Kesar as her husband and has fallen in love with him without even knowing him, she is in love just with the thought of being in love with him. Another thing is that she knows she will never leave this family and house and her beloved Sudha and Gulaal if she gets married to Kesar. What more could a young girl who has lost her entire family want? Gulaal knows full well how much Talli loves Kesar, and keeps bringing up the promise of marrying her to Kesar, leading her on even more despite knowing how Kesar is now.
Talli is a sweet misguided girl who aligns herself with Kesar only because of Gulaal's promises. Once she realizes how much Kesar loves Gulaal, she will step back especially because she loves Gulaal and Jamna's words that she is a burden. She would give Kesar and Gulaal space if she was not so insecure, she doesn't know if Kesar loves her and she is madly in love with him. Obviously she wants to spend more time with him. He doesn't pay any attention to her and teases her just like a friend. But his approval means the world to her. Its such an unfortunate situation for Talli, and I have full sympathy for her. I hope she finds out sooner rather than later about Kesar's feelings - she doesn't deserve to be in the dark anymore. I fully blame Gulaal for ruining this girl's life, Gulaal is over-confident in her right over Kesar and herself being right all the time but has no clue.
Nice post :). @bold...this is something I am contemplating too given her deep love and concern for Gulaal. Lets see what's in store for us.
I absolutely agree with you about the insecurities in her mind for Kesar and I am guessing that she is not the one to turn negative after finding out that he loves Gulaal. She is a bit more subdued for that..she'll plainly accept it and internalize her pain.And yes...its all Gulaal's fault even if she had the right intentions behind it .Its only going to complicate things further.
