That is what I love about you, you are exactly like the boy on the burning deck whence all but he had fled. I admire such a never say die spirit, which is miles away from the vapid and frantic fulminations that flood this forum.
It is very tough to defend Purvi these days, she changes her stand with such bewildering rapidity that one gets dizzy. She has now abandoned all her concern for Ovi is order to save her aaji's old house, as if it was the Taj Mahal. Houses are pulled down and rebuilt all the time, and it is not as though those prized yaadein
are somehow glued to the brick and mortar of the K chawl. And what if Ovi has a breakdown as a result of this grand revelation? Suddenly, this does not seem to matter at all to our Ms. Mahaanta. Bizarre is not it.
I am glad to see that even though you persist in the ways of folly wrt Purvi, your daughter has inherited your otherwise clear-eyed good sense! As for the French girl, if she has read George Simenon's classic Maigret stories, nothing in PFR will faze her!
Arjun of course has long ago abandoned any claim to a mind of his own, so there is no use bothering about him. Onir too seems to be going the same way, but still there is a kind of limpid serenity about him. as if he knows the idiocies he is committing but will commit them regardless, not out of helpless enslavement to his Mishti,
but because he will stand by her come what may. No matter that she does not think about his interests at all. It is admirable, such self-abnegation, but it is intensely irritating as well.
Of course Sasha had a lot of fun; that boy knows how to get exactly what he wants, and on the rare occasions that I jib, his patti immediately takes his side, with predictable results!

Shyamala & Varsha, lol, I am the lone sentinel standing guard over a fort that has been deserted and almost razed to the ground! :) even my daughter asked, "amma, is there something wrong with that girl? ", traitor in my own nest! :)
Waiting to pick up our French exchange student, maybe I can get her hooked on to PR too! Shyamala, that would be marketing skill indeed, if it could be managed :)
Looks like Sasha had a fun time in India with his paati and you :)
