Hi Impressions. I liked the way you expressed yourself. I think you said it better what I wanted to say. I know there are a lot of Gauri Fans. And believe me, I like certain things about her too. But what most Gauri fans misunderstand is that CVs have changed her personality and are now showing her as negative. It may be true. But it may also be that Gauri is this way. I feel this way because:

I completely agree with you. But I have often wondered about one thing. What if this is the real Gauri. A person's real personality comes out in a crisis, when there is a problem or when life beats them down. We have seen several problems in Anandi's life and we KNOW how she will react. But this is the first big problem Gauri has faced (as an adult). Maybe this is the real Gauri. Remember how she was gettting so worried/depressed/frustrated when she could not find a house in Mumbai?
Hi all, I have been an avid reader of all your posts and finally couldn't resist any longer from joining the forum.
Therefore, I dont think that the CVs have just suddenly changed her personality. I think the CVs have slowly shown Gauri's real self.
I respect your POV. Just thought I will write mine too !
I completely agree with the above quoted post about the character Gauri being herself rather than a sudden degradation by the CVs . This character was bound to buckle under pressure. She was always hyper, be it in excitement in college ( some of you might call it chirpy and cheerful), or be it convincing her parents to get her married to Jagat or even while forcing the Singh parivar and Jetsar people to accept her. A go getter, determined character that cannot accept failure at any cost ( not after her annulled child marriage). A person who believes she is always right (even if she is wrong) and can't take no for an answer. Very persuasive and hence restless and even short tempered. And all these traits did manifest once things didn't go her way. Her ultimate mission was to get back what she had lost in her childhood i.e. being accepted by Jagat and his family.
I remember one particular episode, aired long time back just before Jagya professes his lover to Gauri, where she meets her Bade Papa and complains to him about her parents forcing her to get married. That very time I found her to be quite hyper. Maybe due to her high pitched voice. But it also showed her irritability and strong determination ( not wanting to even listen to others). It took great efforts for her Bade Papa to convince her to meet the guy who had come to see her.
1) Earlier Gauri had Badepapa her life. He was the wise one who steered her towards wise and mature decisions. He is absent now and she has started making mistakes and dont know how to handle them.
2) Dadisa...also found her to be impulsive. Dadisa has her own reasons to dislike Gauri and use these reasons to get her out of their lives, but that does not mean that she is wrong.
3) Gauri's own mother and sometimes Gauri herself has been shown to say that she needs more patience.
I started watching this serial about 9 months ago when Gauri's role had just started to be important. I used to find her personality okay even then, because I didnt find her very mature...mostly girlish. Which was okay for her to behave then because she didnt have any problems in life. A person's maturity is revealed only when they have to face problems. I am sorry that Gauri crumbled when she had to face these problems. It is not entirely her mistake. Badepapa is absent. Her parents are useless. It is her misforturne that she likes a spineless person like Jagia.
I really hope that no Gauri fans find this offensive. I didnt mean it that way !
