I do not have much time today...so will only say my piece on Yash and Aarti in short. I do want to mention that I loved the episode...and I liked whatever little progress they have showed in Gayatri's thinking. To think as a woman for your bahu and to try to understand what her so-called indiscretion might have stemmed from and also to ultimately be able to see and acknowledge your son's shortcomings...Gayatri has come a long way. Today she proved herself to be a worthy spouse to her husband and the first lady of the family.
I don 't know what they are called, the spaces between seconds...but I think of you always in those intervals.
Yash knows about Prashant, or at least he knows Aarti was never a widow to start with...and he knows he is in love with Aarti. Of course, the latter he suspected first and was comfortable with whatever path it was taking...till he hit upon the biggest truth regarding Aarti. Yash defended her dignity today...he wouldn't be Yash if he hadn't. He has loved her...and he has hated her...but he would never subject her to the indignity of such a low thinking that will cast aspersions on her character. Yet Yash couldn't mouth the words in front of everyone that would implicate her and her family. He is a disappointed, broken man today..."It's best that this remains between us...because if this comes out, this relationship will have no existence (wajood)...so better it remains as is and runs the parallel course that was meant to be. You and I cannot have a common destination"...and then "Ask yourself...what sin you are hiding within you." These are strong words...and very pointing. Yash will put the existence of this relationship under scanner only if he knows for sure that Aarti betrayed him... And if he comes to know about Prashant...she did, didn't she? He doesn't have to know all the details...all he has to know is that Prashant...her once-upon-a-time husband and Ansh's father...is alive...and that would be enough to push him over the edge in the vulnerable, fragile transitional condition that he was in. That would mean the very foundation of this marriage was based on a lie...right from her performing that puja as a widow during the marriage to her admission of love for him. He trusted Aarti...believed in her...held her hand when she pulled him out of the darkness...and followed the path lit by brilliance by her. Now even if he wants to he cannot turn around and walk back into that abyss...she ensured that. That's why he cannot take refuge in Arpita's memories anymore. He is well and truly out of that frame and standing where Aarti is...only her lie stops him from entering the new frame with her. According to him...they are destined to stand at both ends but never walk in together to complete the picture. Now one knows why he suffered that extreme agony that almost took away his senses...Aarti gave him life and snuffed it away the very next instant...leaving him standing in a living hell. He keeps seeing her back playing in rains through a mist of longing...He had realized his creeping-in feelings then, but then he lost her to those very rains...because that vision has now become a lie. Who knows how much Yash knows...but this so-called deception has put Yash in such a quagmire from which he cannot get out of.
Ansh is once again the catalyst..."Papa, are you angry with me also?"...was what he had asked after he had tried to uplift Yash's mood the day they came back. Did Ansh think he said something after which his papa's mood changed? And now...it seems he knows about Prashant. Whatever it is, if his and Palak's reactions are anything to go by, Yash is making a big mistake by thinking that he and Aarti can walk parallel paths...Palak won't let Aarti go...and Ansh won't let Yash go...and these little bridges will ensure that their parents stay connected...always...forever!!!
That's it friends...Whatever is in Yash's mind, we'll know soon enough... Que sera, sera...whatever will be, will be. See ya later...happy discussing.
Have a nice day.
