Who says only Manik can be the confused soul in this showLOL...Nandini is giving him very tough competition in that department these days.


In today's scene with Abhi, Nandu talks about what she feels love SHOULD be...Love should be happy, love should be pure...it should make you bring out the best in each other...our conditioning shapes a lot of our perceptions...Nandu has grown up idealizing what her parents shared...that is her definition of love...two people utterly happy and at peace with each other...not constantly at each other's throats like she feels her and Manik are.


Now one can't help but pause here and wonder...can Nandini ever have this with Manik?LOL  The immediate answer would seem to be no...because Manik is anything BUT an uncomplicated, simply happy soul...he's as complicated and messy as they get...but Nandini knew all this...he never hid any of his monstrous sides from her...she fell in love with him inspite of all that.

So is this track supposed to be about Nandini realizing that love in fact is NOT ideal? That it's just as much pain as it is joy? That it's actually quite messy?  Especially when you choose to love a monster?

Nandini is an idealistic character...her principles, her belief system in general is totally at odds with Manik and the way he thinks...is it fair on her part to expect an idealistic version of love from Manik?  Or maybe I should backtrack a bit and ask...does she still even fully understand Manik's love for her when he is yet to verbalize it to her?


Nandini seems way too overwhelmed by what is there b/w her and Manik...she wants to tell herself this can't be love cuz it's not HAPPY, it doesn't bring joy...but then why this need to heal his every hurt and pain, Nandini?  Is love not about healing too?


The scene today had some food for thoughtSmile

Good post. Agree with you.
Pure love is when two people love each other despite their differences. Nandini, though she wants to stick to her ideologies and expect a relationship like that of her parents, she simply cannot because she has already fallen for the monster. She views love in terms of logic and about how there needs to be perfection for a happy relationship to thrive. Little does she know that, she can find love only in manik and that too with flaws. 
And as per today's episode, Abhi triggered Nandini to ponder upon her love for Manik and here on Nandini is going to realise what she actually needs to seek for. A jealous Nandini followed Soha all the way to Manik's and that too why? Coz she can't accept another girl in "her" Manik's life.
It's about time she realises it and express it to Manik. :))

The thing is when Nandu started to fall in love with Manik (after she she discovered that he was 'not a monster), that part of their story is pretty idyllic.. They were hidden away from the world, lost in their own bubble and it was comfortable and private.. he was 'simply Manik' with her and she got to see his best side.. so it was easy for her to believe that this is what it's going to be like to fall in love and be with him..

But the first break up was a rude awakening for her..he seemed to have reverted to his monster self and she was left questioning her own judgment..once the truth was revealed, she felt anger and hurt of course, but also a certain amount of relief that she was not totally wrong about the man she thought him to be.. which is why she even comes down after dropping that scarf..  

Nandu is idealistic but she is not impractical.. his monster side doesn't scare her.. in fact she has embraced and accepted that aspect of him too.. Like during the revenge plan, she didn't expect him to suddenly change his ways and become all sensible and respectable, she just tried to tame the monster and keep him from going over the edge..

Also, Nandu is very aware of Manik's capacity to love deeply, selflessly and unconditionally.. she has seen it in action with all of Fab5 and especially with Dhruv.. in fact, that was the very reason she even started to have a change of heart about him in spite of his monster facade with her..
She even understood his reasons for the 'sacrifice'.. she never held that against him.. what hurt her was that he made the decision himself without 'sharing' it with her..his leaving her alone broke her heart not the thought process behind it..
So she doesn't really doubt the feelings.. she knows they are real and intense.. she questions whether they are a good influence on each other.. especially after the hospital drama.. she feels that they bring out the worst, the reckless side of each other.. and she wonders if long term they will end up hurting each other more in their stubbornness rather than making each other happy..

But what this track will bring her to realize is that for better or worse, they are IT for each other. The heart wants what it wants and it has already made its choice. Once she faces that being apart hurts worse than any other pain (just as he did during the sacrifice track), then she will be willing to take the risk.. sure their life together will not be 'ideal'.. but the truth is, she doesn't want it to be either.. If she did, then she would have picked Dhruv and they would have lived happily ever after.. but she didn't.. she chose Manik.. because she loves who she is with him.. she just can't see it yet because like Abhi said today, "she is trying to analyze it all logically". But if she stops doing that and just goes with her instinct which she eventually did (when she landed up at his house) then everything will fall into place for them and they will invariably find their way to each other like always..

Okay wow, did not intend on a such a long replyEmbarrassed

Thank you :-)

Love is so multi-faceted, there is no one ideal version to it...it means different things to different people.

It is easy to idealize love based on fantasies but the ground reality of love is messier than that...it needs to be nurtured and accepted with all it's flaws.

The purity, the joy is all there already, Nandu just needs to learn to look at it in the right way...because if she applies ideal definitions to Manik or her love for him, it will never fit...this isn't something to be SLOTTED.

And I understand why she thinks the way she does...Nandu IS a logical and level-headed girl by nature...so for her to want to make SENSE of all this is but natural.

She will have to realize however that it beyond the scope of her logic scales...there is a force beyond her and Manik's powers binding them together...pulling them towards each other so strongly that both of them are helpless in front of it...like Manik could never help running after Nandu to check up on her even after the "break up" happened, same is the case with Nandu...if anything, her need to go to him, to touch him has only intensified since she's started her attempts to leave him.

And Soha is just accelerating the process of making Nandu realize that she cannot bear anyone else with Manik.

This is where nandini confuses me,  You remember she said to cabir if it doesnt hurt it isnt luv ?  these little inconsistencies throws me off from the pic i try to make of nandini.  Maybe she,s too small to make these statements cause you are bound to view things differently as you grow up n experience more.  
Anu i know you from laagi times n always enjoyed reading your perceptives,  you will do a service if you can write moreWink
