I am so late in watching today's episode.. But I loved it. Not just because of Urmi's diabetes news.(of course that was part of it
) I loved the other parts.. The parts where Mota Bhabhi talked of the family.. It was so aww
Not just that.. they really meant it. The expression on Baa's face when she refused Urmi's food offers (that cheapo
) and that on Hetal's told the tale..
These people love Koki.. Baa is just another mother to her DILs.. The way that Mota Bhabhi discussed Koki with Ahem.. everything gave a feeling of oneness and family.. Modis are amazing
They remind me of people back home
For me more than Urmi's Karma just biting her, the other highlights were,
* Mota Bhabhi and Baa's love for Koki. From Gopi, it was expected. She is a sweetheart and loves her Maaji.. but these two proved just as sweet and maybe more
* Ahem's quick decision. His shock and worry when the specialist was looking at Koki's result and then the genuine smile at the good news. Ahem really loves his mom and Nazim brings that out perfectly. He is worried, concerned for her and he really, genuinely feels happy for his mom.. Great expressions
* That split second when Koki told Gopi not to worry. Gopi's nod but her face still remained clouded and that final look Koki gave her just before the scene cut to UrShi.. Rupal Patel.. Hats off
Koki's love for Gopi, her child was seen in that one split second. Watch it closely. Koki assured Ahem, yes and smiled as he nodded but she knew Gopi would not be satisfied even after that assurance. A mother knows her child. Gopi worries for others and Koki knows that and deep down she loves the fact that her Gopi vahu loves her to pieces.. I am really touched by GoKi today. They are the mother-daughter pair that make me all choked up
(I am in that mood for family and goodwill.. Can you guess
.. Diwali symptoms
* The hand over of responsibility... well the most surprising but most happy part today. It has been decided that the younger Modi bahu's will take up responsibility from the older ones.. Baa's decision and we see no dissent from Mota Bhabhi or Koki. It is a family tradition.. Gopi and Rashi have been DILs for almost 3 years now and they elders want them to manage the house and the other responsibilities.
I liked how this is being done. Starting with a festival the responsibilities will be given off slowly. The DIL gets time to learn and adjust and make their own judgement. The fact that they did not entirely give the responsibility on Rashi is also good. Rashi is the book keeper. She gets to do the math. Gopi is the consultant.
In future these two girls will have to take over the Modi house from their MILs. This is just the first step (Seems like a serious one as per the ME tagline
From the things I could see, Gopi is more enthusiastic for Diwali. While Rashi is looking to cut costs and take some money herself (but how? I thought the girls had to maintain accounts
), Gopi is into dreams of lamps and sarees and decorations
I liked her explanation for getting bigger lamps. The girl should know .She has done this for 2 years running
If Rashi just does this right, she may learn something. But I am sure that is not what the track is. I am waiting to see how the Modi Bahu's fulfill their first responsibility. This is exciting
