Sunanda is not wrong when she says that Ankita married Naren for his money. That is exactly what she did. She married Naren so that her family can have financial security. She refused to marry Shashank claiming that she wanted to carry her famlies burdens and not hand her responsibility to anyone. But when Rushali came with the offer that she marry Naren and Rushali will take care of her family's needs, Ankita jumped and took the offer with both hands. She must therefore suffer the consequences of her deeds. Shashank is correct in saying this.
But, Sakhile, Ankita would also have married Shashank for money as she didn't love him but would have married only for security. So she was presented with two proposals, both for security and she chose the latter.
I think that is what arranged marriages are supposed to represent. You don't marry because you love someone, but to ensure status, class, and financial security. It was a bit unusual in that Ankita was marrying outside her class, but also Shashank was outside her class according to the script. And unwanted by the parents of Shashank. Not a good arrangement at all. While I personally am not an admirer of arranged marriages, they are pretty much the norm for this soap. Archu married Manav as an arranged marriage but then fell in love. The marriage between Arjun and Ovi was supposed to be an arranged marriage which a lot of people supported. (not me but that's another issue
What happened with Archana and Manav is what is happening now with Ankita and Naren.
What consequences of her deeds are you meaning? I don't quite understand your point i guess.She did exactly what society expects of young Indian women, and she is now falling in love with her husband. She should suffer then? She shouldn't care what happens to him? She shouldn't try to protect him when he is in trouble?
Shashank is just jealous and angry. His argument is only based on personal rejection. It isn't a valid argument from any larger perspective though as far as I can see.
Shashank offered to marry her because he loved her. She had been stringing him along for two or three years. Whe she agreed to marry Naren, she knew that he wasn't marrying her but rather he was marrying Ahana. She agreed to the charade, the deception.
I don't think this has anything to do with the concept of arranged marriages. Thus I will not discuss the concept or my views on it here.
Ankita will have to put up with people saying tha she marreid Naren for his money, because that is the truth. As to taking care of Naren etc. it has nothing to do with the discussion. I do not believe that society expects Indian women to marry insane men who believe they are someone else. This is a completely unnatural situation.
Shashank's anger is just and fair. It is natural that after you have been in a relationship with someone and are then rejected you would feel hurt and angry.
I donot wish to start WWIV, but these are my POVs.
Well i wasn't intending to start any war i was just commenting on the post.
Shashank was reacting to Ankita's concern that Naren would be hurt or be ill. She wanted him to remove the reporters and get Naren out because he was being hurt. His argument was that she married him for her family's security so she should suffer the consequence of seeing him be hurt. What sense does that make? Taking care of Naren by Ankita had everything to do with what he said.
All the issues aside about the marriage, what kind of a person would stand by and watch another person be put in a situation where they will be harmed? From a human standpoint, Shashank was completely wrong.
Ankita always told Shashank she only considered him a friend, and that she didn't want to get married. The stringing along was only in Shashank's mind. If she married him it would only have been for her family's security just like marrying Naren.
Sakhile, I view the Forum as a way to discuss issues and the story. I didn't realize you don't want people to respond to your posts, It would have been helpful to know that and in the future i will refrain from discussing the issues with you. Sorry.
