first of all! Rinky great post, finally was able to watch the episode & i think this was the true show stealer. From the break of realization to Indira finally back in her home addressing her family members, simply brilliant!
As the previous comments stated, everything was so well hashed out and discussed so there is not much I can add ..but i will say that I noticed that clenched fist. In my mind, I think Indira was steeling her nerves and keeping a hold on her inner emotions (the daughter aspect mentioned) , and kept herself prepared to do and say all she had. Honestly, Indira isn't heartless, her stern actions does have an effect upon herself - not just those she deals with & so it is very probably that when addressing Inder Sharma's shortcomings, as a father and as individual, she had to keep a stone upon her heart. This person, instead of projecting the honorable and revered image of a father, of a protecting husband, she must view his shame, his past hopeless state, and his reducement of influence. He's not worth even the same space that her feet are at, but one step below. He can look at his daughter in her eyes - he keeps his own eyes and head bowed in front of someone so much younger than him - ashamed. He's been reduced to a joke, a fool & Indira is the one that must deal with even this. No one else could do this, only her. The best part was that, Indira reveals her vulnerability towards her family members, "You all think I take great joy in being Hitler didi, you assume that I like ruling and bossing everyone - but I do not. I have to be this way to keep this place a float, I need to be this way to pay and compensate for Inder Sharma cowardice."
Well Written Riddhi...
Its soo difficult for a daughter to see her own father at her feet & yet stand still.
if it was some other situation, whr a father might have tripped, koi bhi daughter waha apne hath aage badathi to lift her father...but here Indira had to keep all her daughter feelings aside & stay strong...tht clenched fist was depicting tht thing...and as she told woh behcare bhi nahi rahe. She couldnt evn pitty or sympathise with her fathers conditions. But she had to let him knw & realise his condition, and through tht she let out all her feelings & pain at the same time too.
and then Continuing with tht Scene...she told her whole Family abt the reason behind her being or called as Hitler didi too, which we all knw, but those family members never thought nor realised. The way she told the fact in such simple & straight words was lovely. I hope atleast frm now Family member will understand & appreciate Indira for wht she has been doing & will continue to do. Am waiting for those scenes jaha hum yeh dekh payenge ki Family members bhi Indira ki sach mein kadar kare aur unse pyaar se baat kare.,,,without any selfish thoughts or greed of money.
