many scenes that i have enjoyed in HD have been well hashed out, even the character dynamics too!
but there is one sequence that i would really like to explore. in today's episode, indira's eyes happen to flick over to rishi's photo in which he is indicating the viewer to smile. indira then mentions why is it that everyone she meets ends up disappointing her or not understanding her & why she has to be stern. indira had termed it as "backstabbing." she was truly upset, and i felt really bad for her. there ishaan is lying in rishi's bed..the same ishaan who she loves a lot & appreciates because he doesnt expect her to be "soft soft meethi meethi" but is very upset with her. although, at the end of the day, ishaan fully depends on indira to help him reach his own bed safely. he trusts himself with her to take care of him in his sleepened state. his mother is not there, his father is not there & his other family members dont even hover around him either to question how he is ... only indira. (seriously, more grandmothers would dote upon their grandchildren but here we have this dramatic granny praying for her philandering husband .. while his mom is too busy eating or trying to be all heroine to her mannu).
then there is this totally new individual, not new only to her home but to her neighborhood, & he has taken such a stance against her (mocking her, going against her, immediately calling her out for her actions being too stern) .. its like she cant even get a break from anyone. maybe she could have tolerated his opinion better if he spoke to her without her entire taunting and poor excuse for a family around her. she would have been less hurt.
the next scene is when she leads ishaan down the stairs carefully while the next-door grandma is watching. this grandma is so concerned for indira, you can tell that she expected rishi to be a positive in indira's life & not another reason for stress. she prays to god for indira to have her shoulders lightened of some of her sorrows, to find a messiah that could help her on her tenuous path of life.. & POP comes rishi. herreaction towards rishi is less inviting than her first meeting with him. she had happily blessed rishi & told him to take good care of indira, but this time - she dismissed him. clearly, she even felt disappointed in rishi's actions. her doubt in rishi is conveyed when she says she was praying for indira to have someone help her and he had to step inbetween her dua. he's confused & left thinking. this grandma seems to be indira's well-wisher whom she doesnt even know exists .. kind of like a fairy godmother overlooking a child & praying for the best.
im sure i could delve more into this, but at the moment this is all i can properly say .. i really feel like this scene was poignant. especially indira's dialogue & her expression of sadness & disbelief, along with the next door grandma's dua & frustration while dismissing rishi
