I do not think Ankur is selfish. He is rather practical and whatever he said was correct but the only thing that does not gel well is now he is the only blood relative and support for Sandhya and him arranging the marriage in just 15 days. No sensible brother would do this. Things may go wrong with hasty marriages. It would be okay if the marriage is arranged in a family well known to them or a close relative but that is not the case here. Also, Ankur is not going to US for long, he said just two years, then why hurry. He can make some other arrangements like living with any relatives also.
I also thought Sandhya would offer to stay in PG or hostel. Donno whether they will present this idea in tomorrow's epi or not. But in Ankur's point of view, marriage would be the best solution for relieving his responsibilities fully.

I think I would have felt that he was being rather callous had he just decided to get her married without the Damocles sword of 15 days , But that Sword is hanging and there is a presentiment that his dream may slip right thru his fingers if he does not set his affairs right ...In such a scenario I can understand his rush to hand her over to another family...I do not think he has become hasty as yet ... since he did go back to saumni's to check up on their relationship and also he did the proper thing of hiring a broker .. Right now he is scouting around and has not agreed to the first one who has come in the horizon... So lets give him the benefit of doubt until then !!
As for Hasty marriage.. That depends .. I have seen alliances fixed after proper consultation , checking Bg of both the families , and the Astrologically suitable jodi's crumbling like 9 pins ..whereas ppl who confidently predicted that a marriage will not even last a month re certain jodi's going great Guns...
He is going for 2 Years , 730 days . He just cant leave her alone [ I really am curious about the lack of relatives ] and going to relatives does not seem to be an option entertained here ..U know even if Ankur does not have relatives, Ankitha might be having, they could have left Sandhya there ..but then again CV's are not looking in that direction ..
Ankur does say that Sandhya has to get married sooner or later , then why not sooner ...I think he is trying to do the best for both of them but his best is not sufficient ...
