I would like to say, a la Aman, HEY, RELAX!
have no proof that this is the reason Yash is angry...none whatsoever!
This is all conjecture by Aarti and Aman. I still have a feeling that it
something bigger than this. I don't think Yash doubted Aarti's
character, but then even if he did, it is a good thing because Aarti can
finally treat him like a person and not a god.
See you have to
see the situation from Yash's perspective. Aarti said she was going to
the mandir and then obviously met Aman...only to have her clothes
returned the next day. It really does look like she lied just to meet
Aman and left the kids with Yash, which is why he made that sarcastic
remark when they left about her not being the only one who cared for the
kids. And I think the clincher here is that she didn't get a chance to
tell him. If she had told him up front then I think he would have been
totally fine, but she didn't and it must have looked like she was hiding
it from him.
I think this makes a lot of sense actually because
it explains the waves of Yash's anger and madness. I think the real
craziness set in when he realised he had given up on his magical
connection with Arpita's stuff for Aarti, only to find that she had
"cheated" him. And he got more and more aggravated because Aarti was
"pretending" not to know what happened when he thought she did it on
Something important to remember is that Yash does not
mind Aarti's mistakes as long as they are unintentional, the perfect
example of this being when she broke Arpita's picture frame. When that
flashback had aired I had said that it was sort of a reverse
foreshadowing of what had actually happened to make Yash angry. There,
Aarti did not commit the mistake of breaking the frame on purpose and
Yash forgave her immediately and tended to her cut. Aarti also knew
precisely what she had done wrong so she was able to fix it immediately.
Here the opposite happened. Yash thinks that Aarti betrayed him on
purpose and Aarti had no idea what she had done wrong so she had no way
of fixing it...and so the situation got worse and worse.
all relates back to the fire episode too for the symbolism of the wiring
and the geyser, i.e, Yash's deep seated problems (the faulty and old
wiring that needed to be updated) and Aartis' carelessness, the two of
which collided to create the explosion that led to the fire. Yash did
not communicate the depth of emotion he was feeling towards Aarti, how
could he when he had told her so definitively that he could never care
for her? So Aarti had no way of knowing how sensitive and volatile his
wiring was. And by not telling him (which I do believe was careless of
her) she "left the geyser on." As a result the newfound faith inside
Yash was burned in a blazing fire that erupted within him, and that
faith was more necessary to him at that moment than even Arpita's
memories because it was the thin thread he was holding onto that was
leading him back to life and light.
So it is a combination of
Yash's faulty wiring AND Aarti's carelessness that led the fire to break
out inside him. And it flared up so fast that neither he, nor anyone
else could even try to control it. That is why he never had the good
sense to ask Aarti for an explanation. He was completely consumed by
this fire and had no faith left to spare her. Then when he returned to
Bhopal, he found he had also lost his connection with Arpita, not being
able to go back to sleep after being thoroughly awakened during the
Mumbai sojourn. Now every time he looked at Arpita's pictures he
remembered only his own loneliness and isolation...the grave he thinks
he dug for himself. He told Aarti he could never feel for her and as a
result he "lost her" to another just as she was making a place in his
heart. Then to make matters worse, he realises he also lost Arpita by
letting her fade into a pleasant memory, in order to embrace the present
with that same Aarti. This is his own, self-made hell, where he has
nothing and no one all because of his own stubbornness. That is why he
is punishing himself, that is why he says he has no right to punish
Aarti: because even if she did go off with Aman, Yash knows she didn't
technically betray him by his own definitions. And yet he trusted her to
wait for him, without him having to ask her. So he feels betrayed but
knows that he has no right to, and that feeling of betrayal is the
punishment he is talking about, I think.
The point I am trying to
make is that it doesn't matter to Yash what Aarti did with Aman that
night. What is torturing him more is the possibility that opened up,
that Aarti could go off with someone else, and that he could do nothing
to stop her by his own definition of their relationship. And if she must
go, I think he wants it to be as easy and quick for her as possible,
just like he did with the almost divorce, so he is pushing her away with
his anger and his madness, hoping that she will be pushed to stop
standing by this marriage on principle and be actually happy with a
person she loves (shout out to Kirthi...it makes total sense now!), and
not have to sneak around.
About the agnipariksha thing, it sucks
but it goes with Aarti's character to a tee. She is always waiting for
these dramatic moments to punish herself and prove her love. So maybe
while on other shows I feel like they are showing injustice, here I see
Aarti's character sort of justifying her own humiliation sometimes. She
totally gets a high off of these types of moments.
I don't think
this is regressive at all to be honest because it is showing regressive
behaviour, but always in a negative light. Why do you think everyone has
taken to Aman so much? Because he is being portrayed as a ray of hope
in a regressive quagmire.
Also, I finally saw some depth to Bua
today. She was totally projecting her own desires onto Aarti. Did you
see the look on her face when she saw Aman? Her eyes nearly popped out
of their sockets. Everyone is basically projecting what they would do on
to Aarti and so misunderstanding her, which I find fascinating.
