I would like to elaborate on my previous post, as it seems
the discussion has moved ahead from the point I was trying to focus on. In my
previous post, I was trying to explain why, given the circumstances, SurYa's 'secret
study' decision was not completely wrong/nonsense/unrealistic. As for the
consequences, it was obvious that their decision would have some unwanted
consequences; even SurYa realized this (recall SurYa convo at the college). And
the CVs have done well to keep things real by actually playing out these
But the point that is often being forgotten is that going
down the alternative road, of getting Bhabho to agree, would have also had some
serious unwanted consequences. The least of these is the loss of a year of
studies. More importantly, Bhabho would not have taken things lying down. She
would've fought back, as she did before. As Einstein said, 'the definition of
stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different
results'. Suraj had already tried to convince Bhabho twice. As for
blackmailing, the success of this was also not certain. I'm not saying Bhabho
is not a good mother, but her ego is damn big!
I wouldn't have been surprised
if she called Suraj's bluff on closing down his shop. With the secret studies
idea, Suraj must've thought of trying something different. At least by starting
the studies, SurYa would have something concrete to work with; for instance, as
Sandhya suggested in last epi, she can prove to Bhabho (and perhaps herself)
that she can be a good housewife, while continuing her studies.
Lastly, with regards to when Suraj will tell Bhabho, I don't
think Suraj's plan was to secretly go through the entire IPS process, and then
just show up one day at the Rathi Mansion, with Sandhya in her IPS uniform, and
say to Bhabho: "Hey Bhabho! You are NOT going to believe this! Guess what your
beendni and I have been doing these past few years! Go on ' guess, guess!
also don't think Suraj really planned when and how to reveal his secret to
Bhabho, but he must've been thinking of revealing it as soon as he sees an
opportunity. From today's epi, I think he realized that opportunity is not
likely to show up, and judging from the precap, it looks like his plan is to
create that opportunity himself. But again, I don't like speculating about the
story ahead; I rather allow the CVs to do their job and present the story, and
then see if they make any sense.
' phd romance!
Oh and Hi-five!
btw, great discussion by everyone!
keep it up!
