I wish to slap ratan for learning nothing from her mistakes. That woman is ready to accept veera if her two timing husband comes back but has no qualms rejecting a five year old who is not at fault for anything going wrong in her life.
Further more Ratan herself ran everyone away from her life with her unbending stubbornness and if truth be known, despite her driving a truck, a tractor and what not, the woman is a weakling. By the way half the woman living in rural punjab, work in the fields, alongside men. Actually in every second village you see examples of many single women parenting their kids and working in the fields, for their livelihoods.
She is a weak woman because she does not know how to forgive people and move on in her life in the real sense of the word. So, she may be a feminist or whatever but she lacks a basic human virtue I.e. the heart of a mother. she behaves like a thwarted wife all the time but never like a mother. she may be a provider but she is no caretaker otherwise she would not call a little girl the sole reason of her destruction.
Modernity is a state of mind and liberalism is an attitude and this woman is far away from both. She is also a typical starplus bahu trying to prove like pratigya and akshara and Sandhya that she is the best of all, and how she has borne all ills and given shelter to the illegitimate child of her late husband. But the fact of the matter is that it is her son's affiliation to the little baby that forced her to allow veera in her house, and not some intrinsic feeling of goodness.
She is a typical housewife who is still keeping true to petty feelings instead of rising above them to experience true liberalism.
She who is so ready to blame veera for her husband's abandonment of her is totally blind to the fact that she herself is the reason for breaking kartar's marriage. She is hurt by gurpreet's hatred for her thinks of herself as oh so innocent in all that mess. On the contrary she is so eager to blame a 5 year old child for being a home wrecker. Shame on ratan she's no sherni she is a bloody coward hiding her own weaknesses and insecurities behind an innocent child.
If she had been woman enough for her husband he would still be with her.
