First of all sorry for being late to update. Thank you but Hey no apologies please..I'm glad you could make time to post.
"The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother,you are no longer the center of your own universe.You relinquish that position to your children."
Ishita is the mother her, not Shagun and Shagun can never be. As you have quoted, "being a mother is an attitude". Apt quote Gan. I couldn't find an apt quote other than you have quoted. I loved that quote the 1st time I used it...and it's perfect in this situation...so I reused it. I love your quote too!
Ishita became selfless in a complete way when she became a mother to Ruhi...when she felt the tinge of motherhood when Ruhi was around her. Ishita's character itself is a selfless one, but she became more and more selfless when Ruhi came to her life. She for Ruhi, could ask sorry from her Adi and his biological mother.At the time she knew her amma's accident was done by Adi, she could only forgive him...the love for the child was much more to her... Very well put! And the day she got the notice from the court for the Custody case reopened, I loved her anger directed at Raman(I know she got a lot of bashing here for that)..because he was trying to protect his wife's name which jeopardized the security of his daughter...Moms are fiercely protective of their children...Ishita was a mom with her 'selfish' need to have her daughter in her life...Ishita has a mother's soul...even to Adi who has been always so rude and hurtful to her.
Now as much as Raman yearns for Adi's love, that much she too yearns...yes she does.
A mother was drinking at night purposefully, to show others that how much is she tensed for her son...in that course of time she din't even mind to peep into the room of Adi...
The mother who was told that to keep a distance with the child as he is not comfortable with her presence couldn't resist herself from looking how is her children sleeping.
The moment the mother came to know her one child is missing and the other is tensed, she consoled her, settled her and without wasting any time she ran searching him. when she found him, she consoled him,brought him to his father, gave him medicines and settled him too. The biological mother dint knew anything... Yes that is precisely why I loved this episode as the CVs put the contrast between the two mothers so well! Kudos to them.
What a mother Shagun is...Ruhi too is her biological daughter, not a second has she tried to ask her "how are you Ruhi..."
She was busy making her son insecure to make her secure and in that course of explaining, she couldn't even had the patience what Adi was trying to tell her. He was constantly telling her that he did some mistake...but she never asked what was the mistake he had done. Not a second she thought or asked her son what made him to sleep near Raman, because at night he was sleeping in Ruhi's room. Shagun's narcissism has been highlighted so well...till now we guessed but didn't have a clear picture of how Shagun manipulates Adi's thinking, his insecurities...I even had thought that probably in her passion to climb the social ladder she's lost perspective that she's doing damage to probably the only person who she loves besides herslf...but the other day when they showed her monologue where she clearly was scheming to utilize Adi's insecurities to garner sympathy from the bhallas and yesterday when she was badgering her son who was already visibly upset about being 'charity case' and losing Bhallas' charity because of him not being a good boy...I could have samacked that woman if she was in front of me...and I'm usually a very calm person
This track is about Adi...Adi getting a new mother, Adi knowing what love is and Adi knowing what is right and what is wrong. Its the time for him to claim his mother...Ishita. Yes ..if only the CVs can tone down the Shagun melodrama a bit to yesterday's level...then this track would be a great one.
