Traditionally speaking, it is the responsibility of the son to obey his mother. So it is no shock some one who takes this laterally walked into water.
What I did not understand is the role of father /husband in this set-up.
Again traditionally speaking, it is also the responsibility of son to obey his father (more then mother? I don't know). So why Suraj did not stop when Bhabhasa asked him to stop from going into water?
There is no logical answer, only an emotional answer that Suraj is more emotionally attached to his mother than father since childhood. So it emotions over dharm here.
Once again traditionally speaking, a wife is to obey her husband as much as a son has to obey his parents. How come Bhabho, who is the epitome of traditions, doesn't obey when Bhabhasa asked her to tell Suraj to stop?
The only logical answer could be if Rajasthan business families are strongly Matriarchial.
Is it the case?
The way Bhabho treats Bhabhasa with disdain also points to this.
Somebody who has the knowledge, please throw some light on this.
