Khushi is well aware that Arnav spouts out only when he is
really affected or riled up. She has been igniting his patience since one whole
day, and it was bound to erupt soon.
In the last few minutes of the episode you can see that
Khushi almost tastes success in making Arnav finally charge up to her. We'll
have to wait and see tomorrow if he does say 'Happy Birthday' to her.
Why would she otherwise keep turning away from his efforts
unless something good comes out of it... something good... for him?
Something good for Arnav... she wants to make him angry at her...
so that he doesn't feel like interacting with her... so that... ... oh-oh-oh... I now
If she still believes that Arnav is serious about their 6
months contract, then:ONE:
She may be doing this to make it easier to break away
when the time comes.
f it's for his good that she is doing it, then it can
only mean that she knows how he really feels about her... and if she knows that,
then she would know that he isn't serious about the 6 months contract - which makes this then an invalid point!
It could of course be to drive him closer to his sister, but
that too is a slightly invalid point as she knows that Arnav won't just drift
away from Anjali because of her.FOUR:
maybe she feels that right now Anjali is drifting away from Arnav - or
that Anjali would be feeling left-out, and alone. So, she may be doing
it for Anjali via Arnav!
The last point in this theory is that she is doing it for
herself, to spare the pain. But Khushi has always been selfless, and doesn't
really think about her needs and happiness. 'BUZZER' - INVALID POINT AGAIN!
My mind is twisting around like Khushi's jalebi's now.
I think the best conclusion I can get from my above
contradictory views is that:
Khushi is doing both the points - driving him to say 'Happy
Birthday' aloud, and trying to create a distance between them.
I thought some more about it, my twisty jalebi mind wasn't
at rest, and I came up with one last theory... please bear with me...
theory is that Khushi is just frustrated that Arnav is using secondary methods
to wish her instead of straight out to her face.
I put myself in her place and
could see that even though he gifts the bag, the rose, the thoughtful decoration and cake, the coochie-coo midnight kiss
and all - it would all certainly make me happy, but maybe not happy enough.
Even then, I would love it if my man came straight up to me,
looked deep in my eyes, held my hands and said... "Happy Birthday Nia!" - Swoon and
flat out dead I would be... after my heart performs a dancy-wancey jig and
All of us cherish and love it when someone special vocalizes
their feelings and words for us, right? There's just some magic in it, to have
your lover by your side, to have your love show and say sweet words of love...
the soft whispers, or even a drawl... as long as they say what you want to hear
This is the same with Khushi I feel... she really longs to
hear the love he has for her from him, with his own voice, by himself! That's all!
Okay, I really like this last theory the best.
doesn't mean that I have discarded the first few theories. Par phir bhi I'm not totally satisfied with the theories. There is something missing!!
Let's see which one
comes about in the episode!
First few minutes:
The first scene brought bittersweet tears and a smile on my face. Poor Arnav,
unable to express his deep love for Khushi when she's awake. And Khushi,
understanding him, and yet trying to break him from that closed door of
expressing his love for her. Smart, mature, understanding woman!
Also, the kiss reminded me of Sleeping Beauty being awakened
by her Prince.
Khushi's Rajkumar kissed her before midnight! Sho shweet!
hayye, the kiss... uff... off in dreamland dreaming about it!!!
Subtle hints of
romance, intensity and passion in this scene, setting the tone for future love
NK and Nannav:
heee... my dream come true, always wished for them pairing up - WHAT THE!
haahaa, good one... I'm loving their conversations!
A hint of Arnav's
The way he spoke about it, it was happy days then. A glimpse of the
childhood Arnav was shown to us today. A softness in voice, a boy requesting
his grandmother to prepare his favourite dish. Loved this scene!
first I thought that it was for Anjali he had in mind, then at the dining scene
I remembered Khushi's names for Payal's babies: Aloo Kumar and Poori Kumari'
something like that, not sure about the 'kumar' and 'kumari' part! But Aloo-poori
were definitely there!
Naaniji's brain is
back! : She has noticed the tension between Khushi and Arnav. Thank gawd her brains have returned...
"To my dear wife
Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada":
Floored me again with the 'My Dear Wife'!
Anjali: The sense
of abandonment and no longer being the 'duniya' of her Chotte's world is really
breaking her bit by bit. She hasn't recovered from her husband absent from her
life, when now her Chotte too is slowly receding from her. She is losing/lost
her 'control' over the two most important men in her life - and that is
cracking her world even more, it is showing her that you don't always have
things under your control alone.
Payal has not been very attentive to Khushi's troubled marriage (some months
back), but Khushi has always had Payal's back, and will continue to do so. Today,
Khushi witnessed that all was not well in her dear Jiji's married life
- the ever
ray of sunshine, Khushi will try to bring happiness back for her Jiji and
Green saree/dupatta from Payal, green spinach on ME, and now green gift wrapped present from Arnav:
Either, it is about growth, freshness, revival and new life for Arnav-Khushi... or, they are missing Doodleberry (DB)
was laughing the whole time at these two kids!
She is bent upon giving him a
hard time, and he is bent upon making her happy. Classic 'never give up' game
played by both husband and wife - EQUALS!!
Barun Sobti: You
ees too good! The perfect expressions of pain, love, irritation, tenderness and
boyish charm! Just please, cut your hair a bit. The gel and the flick is
getting a bit too much even for a patient person like me. Sanaya Irani: You
know I LOVE YOU any which way you are! You bring Khushi to life for me, and
today you were PUUR-FECTO!!!
Karan mere bhai (said in 'Nannav mere bhai' tone)... I will recite my roz ka
demand: Please be a permanent character on the show! I'm loving Nannav-NK
scenes and today's was ROFL-worthy!! You are amazing - the way you bring so
much freshness to the whole episode! Loved your warm, enthusiastic 'GOOD MORNING'
to RM vaasis!!
CV's: A good
blend of relationships today... along with humour, nok-jhok, misery,
understanding and love! Lovely episode - simple with a good impact! Keep it
Kal kya hoga? Arnav-Khushi alone at home? The ladies at
Satsang, NK off for a date, Aakash at office, HP with Laxmiji in a corner?... 300th
episode!!! Biting my nails in anticipation!
