Am so glad this thread is back.
Topmost Frust first..
Too many threads are complaining about Ganga's fondness about Dactarsa.
So much so that they think she doesn't even deserve the protection of this place coz she has ambitions towards the son of the house.
But tell me - don't they say love is blind? And also - don't they say - you can't chose who you fall in love with ?
But here it seems - only the well off can afford to announce the object of their affection and the rest have to shut up and bear it.
Example 1. Sanchi fell for Jagya even though he is completely unsuitable for her.
Sanchi doesn't think that is at all a problem coz she is confident she can change anything that she doesn't like. So far she is proving that correct too. She has gotten thru her own family's red tape and now Jagya's family's red tape and now she has a free ride ahead.
Example 2. Ashima fell for Shiv.
Now here - Ashima is still hurting and so she stays away. Its not she can't find other equally handsome guys elsewhere. But her heart was lost here and so she pines.
Why don't we hate Saanchi's tears - Oh ! maybe coz she never cries. She is a go-getter. She is getting all she wants - Crying is for tohers not her type.
Why don't we hate Ashima's tears ? Coz Ashima is well-off enough to stay away from the family and shed her tears in private. Ashima cud not have kept them at bay during the wedding - so she was absent - but never the less she still cries for him and we are okay with that.
Why do we hate Ganga's tears ?
Coz she is dependent on these people and she has to be around to help n serve and so her control when it slips - shows her pain. Ganga too like Ashima does not have the luxury of telling the guy that she loves him coz he's spoken for.
But Ganga still hurts RIGHT ?
So how dare people take away her right to even show her pain ? If Ganga did not stay here and was not ahelper - she cud have afforded to stay in her room or her own house and wet as many towels as she pleased - just like Ashima. But coz she hasn't got that - she gets to be insulted by not just Saanchi n Sumi but also our forum ??
Grrr !!!!! This is what gets me the most...
