very interesting observations from everyone. it seems as if PN is full of symbolisms. i don't think we've exhausted all possible analyses of that house.
as for the blackout, this is very, very interesting. i'm sure that they could have done the july 20 episode without the power outage. the CV's probably thought of putting it in because so many power outages have been happening in india due to the storms. however, it is a stroke of genius to put in the blackout to achieve a foreshadowing effect, leaving a foreboding feeling in the audience.
before i forget, bangles have always figured prominently in the show. wafah discussed bangles in her thread entitled "Cuts and Bruises"http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1729021
finally, i've been looking at the montages with guddu and runjhun in it. it is interesting to note that in the last four, before the new one, guddu was always behind runjhun. guddu always seem to be looking at runjhun, while runjhun at times looks sideways at guddu, or looks to the front. in our new montage, it is the first time that guddu and runjhun anre face to face.
