: You've left me speechless again, both with the compliments and your additional comments! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your love and support (and for your patience!). Comparing me to Picasso? Goodness! You're a Neruda, if we continue with the Spanish-speaking legends comparisons!
Aarti is most certainly a "chalta-phirta disaster" and although I was fondly smiling away while reading that description of her, there are heavier connotations to that phrase as well, from some characters' POVs...Anyway, on a lighter note, yes, I very much believe that Yash has come to accept Aarti's imperfections, clumsiness and all, and the fact that he is sensitive to the point of looking out for her when she is about to stumble or commit even the smallest blunder (like the steam iron or teacup incidents lately) makes me think that he's taking small steps towards love naturally, almost reflexively, because Aarti's nature and personality is so radiant and warm that he can't help being drawn to her, the enigma that she is. He may not call it love per se, but slowly that void of a "companion" is being filled. He won't know when he crosses that thin, barely perceptible line...Just like Aarti didn't know until she crossed the bridge and looked over her shoulder and saw that everything looked the same yet different...
Your contrast between Arpita and Aarti is spot on! I will take it a little higher by going back to an old description...While Yash put Arpita on a pedestal, he and Aarti are on level ground together, on equal footing. That's much more exhilarating, if I may say so myself!
@Zetter: Aww, thanks for always reading, hun! I think noting details is the only thing I can naturally/automatically do on a daily basis - glad to know that they may be of some interest!
@Mitul: I am hoping that Aarti eventually reacts the way she did with Mansi and gently but firmly tells Shobha to give the relationship time and space to simply exist. Aarti doesn't have any expectations and is perfectly selfless about it, and she's being quite practical and realistic, actually. One positive sign was definitely Aarti ending the phone call and leaving her mother hanging!
@SONOMAKTER1: Thanks for stopping by!
