See, here is how I feel. If I get my daughter engaged and she is feeling extremely agitated about it, I wont try to force it down her throat. Garima has no clue of reality and we agree that most conservative Indian families want to atleast meet some relatives from the boys side to get to know him better. How come none of them insist on that? How can they take his word for truth? Its bizarre, and it almost seems like they want to wash their hands off Khushi.
Garima's dialog are well justified if she has done everything in her capacity to make sure Shyam is a the right guy. But this is like false optimism, you want to believe what you want to believe.
Anyway, I may be out of touch with middle class indian family ethos, but i know when my daughter is sad and unless i am total brute, i would not rest until i find out from her what is bothering her. Waxing poetic does not count as good motherhood.
I completely agree with you that I would never do this to my daughter. But that does not mean Garima is bad either. From the point of their current situation, it seems to be the right choice. Babuji health is not good. Payal's wedding is already broken. They don't have their shop. They are depending on buaji for help. Khushi is working in some place to survive. and on the other hand there is this guy who is giving them hope and being their support at the worst period of their life. he does not expect anything from them and is also ready to get married to khushi on Buaji's request. He likes khushi and is also ready to ignore all those habits that buaji finds irritating. From yesterday episode, it looks like he is spending money for the wedding too. If I remember it right, Shyam also mentioned that he does not have a family in Delhi so they did not bother to ask him about the family. Above all this, Buaji and Garima are completely smitten with Shyam so thinking anything bad about him is not possible. Considering all this, why would Garima see a red flag?
Also, like to mention that, if Khushi is my daughter, i would advise her against getting married to Arnav . He has his baggage from his past and needs to get his head checked. :) .
