I am not trying to write anything like you awesome writers do. I got curious about why you chose these two words. Yes, there was Lord Ganesha witnessing ASR accepting the power which is above us. He finally understood that somethings are not in our control. But isn't it true that 'nothing is in our control?' - "Tena vina trinamapi nachalathi".
Then when I checked what exactly Guha means, it is another name of Lord Muruga - Son of Shiva and Parvathi, Ganesha's brother. There is another story about a character named 'Guha' in ramayana. I read that a boatsman named Guha helped Rama cross the river when he was abandoned. Does it mean Khushi is the Guha helping Arnav realize that everything is not in his control? To me, she is. She is the first person to tell him on his face when he was wrong, she was the first to teach him many things that were against his ideology, first one to make him laugh and first one to make him cry. She was the only one who fought for him. In my view, it is very similar to Heer Ranjha dialogues they had. Without Khushi, there is no Arnav. Arnav's life will be meaningless without Khushi.
I couldn't relate Vinayaka to anything here except the Lord showing his blessings. Vinayaka also means lord of lords. That is the reason why we do Ganapathi pooja before starting any other God's pooja. Lord Ganesha fought with Shiva and his troop to protect the dignity of his mother - Parvathi (He was guarding the bathroom door when she was taking a bath). Is it Arnav's turn to fight with his own family to restore the dignity of Garima for Khushi? Interesting it will be for sure.
On a side note, I have lost a baby in the 5th month of pregnancy. I know what it is to be told to push the baby out when you know that the baby will not survive. I could relate to Arnav's weakness saying he cannot face Di. I also would hate the man to the core if he blames his wife who has just lost the baby. It is very clear what he is trying to do to her. Emotional blackmail. Already brainless Anjali is going to be like a drug addict without drugs. She will plead and scream till she gets him back. Question is whose words will come true? Shyam's or Arnav's? Shyam says the remarriage won't happen until he is alive and Arnav says Shyam won't come home until he lives. I guess the time only will tell.
I can understand how much u can empathise with Anjali.. It is very difficult to deal with an abortion.. I am sorry for your loss..
Redux is like a maika for most of us! come here any time..
I absolutely agree with the red bits!
