Happy New Year, Ladies!!
PS: Doc, I can guess what scene got to you. It got to me too.
"A boy needs a father to show him how to be in the world. He needs to be given swagger, taught how to read a map so that he can recognize the roads that lead to life and the paths that lead to death, how to know what love requires, and where to find steel in the heart when life makes demands on us that are greater than we think we can endure."
Ian Morgan Cron
"My father nodded. His nod was for me. Different. But not different at all. My father understood. Maybe he had known. Maybe he hadn't. It didn't matter anymore. He understood. I knew he understood, just from his nod, just from his eyes on mine, making his eyes kind for me, and the wave of pain went away for a moment."

"My son, there may be a time when I explain these things to you, because there may be a time when I understand them."
"It's my responsibility to cultivate the man in my son. I can't be passive about that."
"Father to teenage son: "My relationship with you is more important than anything I've got to say to you."
"Parenting has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection isn't even the goal, not for us, not for our children. Learning together to live well in an imperfect world, loving each other despite or even because of our imperfections, and growing as humans while we grow our little humans, those are the goals of gentle parenting. So don't ask yourself at the end of the day if you did everything right. Ask yourself what you learned and how well you loved, then grow from your answer. That is perfect parenting."
The Feels with Adi are just too much.
I don't quite understand why everyone seems to be in a tiff over the current direction of the story. I AM LOVING IT (yes, the Caps were required. You understand.) Yes, RKB's ex living in the house is bizarre, but it's an Indian daily soap, so why are we surprised?
For me, this entire track is about Adi and the psychological consequences of this parents' divorce and years of misguidance. The issue needs attention, and I'm glad it's getting its due. I don't think Ishita is being too maahan this time and I'm not irked by the lack of IshRa romance (not that it's lacking. these two set the screen on fire regardless) because, what can be better than husband and wife working together to solve problems and better the lives of their children and family?
Sorry for the snarky comments. Maybe I'm just irritated over the lack of love for Adi. This child needs some TLC. Who better than Raman Papa and Ishima?
As you said, RKB is a natural father. I love him in Papa mode, whether he's scolding his children or coddling them or engaging in mischief, the man oozes love for the children - Shravu & Ananya included.
You can see his need to reassure Adi in his body language when he's around the kid. He's so desperate for some faith and understanding from Adi, but it's such a delicate situation he can't fathom how to proceed...where to even begin when trying to explain the mess (especially since his son has been fed all kinds of misguided info about his 'lack of concern' all these years). But more importantly, he simply loves his son - despite his attitude, actions, demeanor...indifference, he loves his son, as he is supposed to - unconditionally. Like any father - parent, he simply wants to give his son the best of life - including the right guidance, confidence, faith - through circumstances and in himself, a chance at the best life possible...but perhaps most of all, the most crucial thing for any child: security.
As for Adi. What can I say about this child? He's breaking my heart. I just want to hug him and tell him it will be ok. I want this kid to understand that while Shagun loves him, she doesn't know how to channel that love properly, hasn't been able to love him the way a mother should love her child - with zero ulterior motives. I want him to understand that contrary to the lies that he's been fed, My RKB loves him unconditionally, always has, always will. I want him to know that Ishima has his best interest at heart and loves him as her own. All in due time I guess. As for now, I'm thankful for the catch-22 that he seems to be in - battling with himself over whether to believe the words of his mother or the love he sees reflected in the eyes and actions of his family. Sooner or later, the truth will win out - as it always does. In the meantime, I'm happy he's in the Bhalla house surrounded by the love of his family. At last.
Most of all, I am thankful for this track because I see it hopefully ending with My RKB finally making amends with his and my jigar ka tukda - Adi. Hopefully, it will end with the last bit of the guilt My RKB has been harboring for 7 years finally being washed away...and, perhaps more importantly, a troubled 12 year old child learning the true meaning of parental love, and family.
I could go on and on about Adi-Raman, but, well, I think I've made my point.
[Side Note]: The "Tum Uski Maa Kyoun Nahi Ho" KILLED me. Oh My RKB. My Heart. The Feels. I Can't.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, Everyone!
PS: Apologies (though I know I'm not supposed to) for the rant.
..and about your rant about the track... Same pinch here... I always say that I can put up with any ridiculous drama so long as the story is kept intact.. Kudos to the Cvs for touching upon a very sensitive subject of counselling in indian TV... (Raman's initial reaction to ishita 's suggestion about counseling .. Is a very honest one.. True to the the stigma people often relate too treatment for mental health .. Loved Ishita's reply to that . ) Adi needs help.. And finally looks like he's going to get some...so I can't understand the forum reaction at all... This track is more about highlighting the parent child equation wrt Adi... They couldn't have showed that without forcing them under the same roof...so we get Shagun drama.. Well a soap will have its protagonist and antagonist to keep the drama quotient in... Otherwise just 6 days of sweet love will give us.. As RKB says...diabetes ..
I get people 's dislike ..each of us react to things based on our individual perception .. But this constant hatred for a 12 year old to the point people ask for his death.. That's just too much ..that pushed me to react as initially I ha d no plans of posting because I couldn't watch the episode yesterday at my usual time... And the name calling that goes on in this forum of characters.. Especially of the leads.. Just amazes me... Khair chhodo.. To each of his/ her own
