I have read a few of your posts in the forum..really loved the one on Yayati complex as debates on mythology really leave me intellectually fulfilled..
Coming to your diatribe on dadi's characteristion and khushi's tears.. To be honest on a personal level hated dadi..but I cannot refute the fact that modern India has characters like those looming large and casting their dark shadow on ppl's daily lives..should I call the character a reel reflecting the real or should I call it the truth portrayed but with a fictional note.so I was not surprised by it..wanted to know whether you live in India or abroad,..see however educated a girl is,she is asked to compromise at her inlaws place..if not directly then beneath the layers of so called modernity
Secondly everybody would vouch for the fact that I adore khushi..she is my sunshine girl..probably relate to her on a personal level too..I started watching this show due to her..when ppl were criiticising her so called OTT..I was one of those who defended her..every character undergoes transformation or else should say grows according to the track requirements ..the track requirement is such that khushi's character is confused right now..she is wondering whether she is responsible for the entire fiasco..so the tears..deep down she is scarred too..but masks her hurt with OTT.but today she has somebody who she can openly show that she is hurt or should I say somebody who reads her behind the mask..so the tears..for me dadi's taunts to khushi is natural progression of arnav to correct his mistakes..but what u may call redemption..acc to me a character like like arnav needs a mirror a mirror to show that his mistakes..he needs to know that he is living in a glass house too..the correction is required there..I hate justifying this..but am doing it so because it is the need of the hour.
One more thing..there are execution mistakes on this show and the script has its own faults..so which script doesn't ..I am not saying your stance is wrong..because there is nothing wrong or right in one's POV ..all I am saying is that don't take this show to heart ..enjoy the good moments and throw the regressive one aside
I came across this post..I was going but stopped by...Here most people at DC are older to me...by age and by experience..and hence I with my lack of experience and more fan girlish attitude can be on the wrong path...But whatever understanding I have of human nature...I can just tell...these two characters..Khushi and Arnav...they are both mirrors for each other...What Arnav did to Khushi...was beyond acceptable...But tell me WHY DID KHUSHI FALL IN LOVE WITH ARNAV IN THE FIRST PLACE??No one asked her to,did they??Again Khushi is like a mirror for Arnav...who makes her see HIMSELF...The real ARNAV SINGH RAIZADA...If Khushi's never-say-die spirit,her sunny nature has her past behind it...ASR's wrath,inner turmoils,his isecurities too has his past behind them...
If today..any injustice meted out to Khushi...catches our eye,we should also have the courage to accept that Arnav wasn't born this cruel man..and that there's a reason behind it...Today people are bashing Daadi because Khushi is being tortured..When Arnav was kidnapped and tortured inhumanly...where were these people??Then "Arnav was paying for the injustices towards Khushi!!"right??!!Ridiculous,I say!!Because this forum is more a battlefield these days...I love this show for Arnav and for Khushi...and if I stand beside Arnav today,tomorrow I won't hestitate a bit to stand beside Khushi...I know I have that courage...
And kudos to Gul...Who in this world of pseudo-feminism could introduce a character like Daadi...who though totally loathsome...is a reflection of most elders in Indian society!!
BTW...I hope my friends at DC understand I was NOT bashing anyone in particular...Just felt the need to say this!!
