Shrushti, thanks for the update!
The Trilokpati thing - I thought that Nahusha inherited that once Jalandhar was dead and Indra abdicated his claims on the deva throne. In other words, Nahusha is still that, since he did not turn it over to Durgasura. So how does the latter become that indeed?
Narada is really the most irritating PITA in this serial. When Mahadev has himself handed over the reins of Kailash to Parvati, who the hell is he to go and lecture Suchimati & Vishwanar to release Tripathi?
If he doesn't understand Leeladhar's leelas, he should get the hell out of the way - why does Narayan repeatedly allow him to go anywhere he likes and be a loose cannon?
Kalratri was fine, but if she's talking about the duties of a messenger, she ought to have restricted herself to just delivering the message. Yeah, Parvati too didn't help things by sending a messenger who was just going to arouse Durgasura - maybe sending Nandi might have been a better idea. At any rate, it was funny to see Durgasura propose to Kalratri - I wonder what was her reason for refusing
Durgasura duplicating himself I didn't get - how does that work? Only one is real, and if the real one gets killed, the fake one, which is a creation of maya, is automatically destroyed. So once Parvati killed Durgasura, wouldn't that have automatically taken care of the one Tripathi was struggling w/? Another big thing - didn't Parvati get the name Durga after slaying Durgum (if we are to assume that Durgum & Durgasura were the same asura)? So how does she tell him that she is Durga? "I will slay you and your name will be mine"?
Both Vishwanar & Suchimati know that Tripathi is Mahadev himself, and as such bhakts of Shiva, it just defied any logic that they'd be scared of Tripathi getting killed by Durgasura. Equally irrelevant was their telling Tripathi that he was a Brahmin - maybe he is, but Mahadev is not a Brahmin - he's casteless and can do anything. Also, Suchimati could have simply allowed Tripathi to fight Durgasura w/o releasing him from their family. Also, if Mahadev could give them this bit of wisdom about adopting a son and loving him - a beautiful message - couldn't he have done it b4 he decided to join their family?
The battle - in all the battles involving Ma Durga, she's fought and slaughtered her enemies w/ her various weapons - in this serial, she just vaporizes them. W/ Mahishashur, she fought him alone in this serial, and so far, she hasn't fought Shumbha & Nishumbha, just Dhoomralochan & some other messengers. In today's battle, she just vaporized Durgasura's army (unlike Mahadev, who left Jalandhar's army intact) before fighting him.
Once Durgasura was dead, the rest of the episode was pretty dull. Ravan's antics just didn't make any sense, and he is now becoming an annoying distraction - honestly, they'd do well to drop any ideas of showing Ramayan in this show, since it's totally tangential to the story about Mahadev.
On Kartikeya's & Ganesh's gurukul education, a lot of questions came up. First of all, was Brihaspati ever their guru? Weren't they taught by Mahadev himself? Also, Kartikeya went through a complete education b4 he fought Tarakasura - how does it make sense to send him to a guru now, especially since they've shown him w/ Meenakshi becoming the chieftain of the south - whatever happened to Senapati Murugan? The new Ganesh that they show should look younger than Rushi. Similarly, Ganesh too has undergone a lot of learning, as shown in this serial. So why send them to Brihaspati now? DkDM doesn't know what they want to show us next?
Mahadev singing a lullaby to Ganesh? Let me get this straight - he beheads him when he's just a few days old, and now, after all these years, he sings him a lullaby?
Anyway, thank you Sadhil for entertaining us, and good luck towards your future.
Anyway, the serial is getting dull from here - I'm not excited about any of the future events. Ganesh's marriage could be interesting if Kartikeya's precedes it. The Ravan track is totally boring, and so is this new one about sending Ganesh & Kartikeya to Gurukul. Why not instead show us the Ayappa and Manasa Devi tracks, and introduce other members of Mahadev's family?
