Very true, Neha! This show's main USP is the fact that it is so close to real emotions and I wrote the same for the review of first episode as it instantly connects you with the plot! The desire to have a brother is again something that many like myself can relate to and I have had an experience similar to that of yours. I was about 3 yrs old when I went to gurudwara in North with my parents and I noticed people lining up to book an Akhand Path (Special prayer that is done in 3 days at a stretch without any break) as they get very busy so people wait years to get their path done. I remember asking my parents why are they doing this and they replied saying people do so to request something special or do it to offer thanks once their wish is fulfilled (kinda like doing a Sukhna or a Mannat). I instantly said "Baba Ji, we will do Akhand Path as well if you will give me brother"!; my parents were quiet surprised that I unknowingly made a wish this big!
And since I am from Amritsar, I know of that Gurudwara that was mentioned in the show today by the lady where everyone's wish to have a child is fulfilled. That Gurudwara is named "Baba Budha Ji" and it is about 45 mins away from my house and we went there as well to pray for a child (i wanted a brother so i prayed for a guy lol) and that gurudwara has a significance that everyone's prayers are answered; they give special parshaad to all the ladies who are expecting and they do get a child. So, my mother had that same parshaad and soon enough, my brother was born! Once he grew up a little, we all went back to the same gurudwara back in North to fulfill our promise (the one I made) and did an Akhand Path!
So, all of that they are showing is quiet close to reality- real emotions! Ranvijay's desire to have a sister encompasses emotions of many in the audience and I am sure that is something that would take this show to greater heights! Like you said, showing a guy wanting a sister is an interesting concept as usually girls pray for their brothers but this new concept puts an interesting spin to the whole thing!! Today's episode was again nothing less than yesterday, I enjoyed watching it! Looking forward to see what is in store :)
