.yes i felt that Sugni being insulted by her self for doing it, because she againts it before...but in other hand sardhaki is a social tradition all the bednis and Takurs involved...the society they are living is not accept it as insult how outsiders judge it as a insuiting event...??
Just because it is accepted by that community doesn't mean it is not an insult to women, both the bedni women and the thakur wives. The Bednis who are born into it and do not know better will continue to do it. However, outsiders who do KNOW better can comment and try to help them. If you are speaking from the show's perspective, then Sugni insulted her self by announcing her sardakai. Aditya, who grew up in the city also insulted her and his mother by doing Sugni's sardakai.
From a real life perspective, it is a huge disappointment to know this practise is still around in the 21st century. An it's only OUTSIDERS who can help educate these bednis and help them to lead respectable lives. The Thakur men who are enjoying themselves will never object to the practise so its only obvious that OUTSIDERS will comment and make the difference in these people's lives.
i applaud you julieD very well said !! that only OUTSIDER can help and educate them the thakur men who are enjoying themselves will never object this practice ever . and here vikram was the one who tried to support, help and educated this bedni's but what to do sugni the bedni never understood his pure intentions . and what a shame aditya was a very well educated person but he did her sardhaki and left a girl friend like amrita . there is no difference between him and a illiterate villager instead of opposing it he followed isardhaki practice ( is aditya's actions reflects an action of a hero who can bring subah according to CVS ? obviously no ).
