Bubbly!! What a post!! So much of time and effort it must have taken for you to put come up with this!! Thanks to Yasmin Banu we got such an insight!! This is brilliant!! You have made me think about it too..! Although I must say I have given it some thought earlier as well..! You know it!
Now its true.. that his past holds the secret to all his present actions! We have not been given any glimpse or clue to that! But I think this will come into picture when the truth is out before Anjali and he explains either in fury or in repentance why he is like this!! And then they might focus on past incidents! We cannot deny that he uses the extra cash when he needs it.. and gets it through Anjali and from Arnav's pocket! And his desire for Khushi is all evident!! He has announced it himself!!
Now I for one, do not want that angle to come true.. his perseverance in psyching Khushi to believe in his love and turn to him willingly when she needs a shoulder to cry on!! God!! This thought might give me a sleepless night or two!!
I would like to put forward what I think about it.. Well..if he says the truth while fooling everyone, which he does, to save himself from the web of lies and also to prepare his case in advance that he never lied about his intentions, its just that nobody believed him.. then I think thats what he did to Khushi too!! He told her this marriage suffocates him!!! That nobody knows the truth, the real story of the marriage!! He used lies to prove that or in your own words he used the truth to cover up the lies, but maybe that is how it is!! He feels suffocated by the zealous, bordering on crazy, brother-sister love, by the constant guarding, the fierce protection!! Maybe he has to live under the raizada roof which is something he doesnt want! Its only for Anjali's comfort that ASR has made such an arrangement!! We saw him living quite happily with Buaji and khushi and all in a small house, leaving all the luxuries behind!! That says a lot about him, doesnt it?
He said.. Kuchh galtiyan aisi hoti hain jinhe hum chaah kar bhi nahi badal pate!! Which he might quite mean!! He took a decision due to circumstances maybe, and then cudnt get out of it!! Coz he knew it was dangerous!! ASR would not let him take any decision!! We have also been shown what a control freak ASR is!! Maybe he controls Shyam's life too in a way, which Shyam doesnt like!!
We have not forgotten but the characters have been trampled with recently! Shyam was shown as a self respecting character not really interested in ASR's money in the beginning!! In fact thats what everyone admired so much about him in the Raizada house!! He has also been shown as grudging ASR his power and arrogance!! It was
quite eveident on the day ASR left Khushi in the middle of the road and drove away!! The day Khushi did the Mausi ji act from Sholay!! She
later tells Shyam about why she was upset and he says.. Arnav Singh
Raizada, I will teach you a lesson someday for all your arrogance!! He also showed some of those shades recently when he mocked at his helplessness in telling the truth to Anjali!
Now, His desire for Khushi.. Ahh.. maybe its love, just the obsessive kind!! Again he admitted that himself to Arnav! May be this is his first love too.. love at first sight!! He cant help it!! Maybe Anjali has always only been an adjustment or compromise, an obligation!! While he feels not just attraction, but tender love too for Khushi! But the forbidden fruit factor has turned it into obsession!! She has been shown in the serial as someone who could affect the hardest of hearts!! ASR is one self proclaimed heartless, emotionless guy!! He has fallen for her madly, against his wishes!! Maybe, its like that with Shyam too.. he fell for her, and couldnt help it!
In any case, I always believe Shyam is just a few shades darker than what Arnav is!! They are very similar in most ways..! I am scared to say this lest people start shouting at me!!
This topic made me run away with my imagination and my burble!! I could so go on and on..!! Please bear with the length.. Oh Bubbly you entice the thinker in me!! I hope these musings made some sense!!
