Thank You...and as always, such a beautiful response from you, Indrani.
I think / hope they don't have black villains in this story, barring dear Khosla...whose hukm ka ikka, thurp ka patta, doesn't go beyond Varun!
That is for sure. This serial is not going to paint anyone as all black. Though they have various shades of grey. Case in point, Chachi has a wonderful relationship with her DIL yet she thinks so selfishly about Shravan. Reasons are multifarious yet they stem from the fact that she is a mother, albeit a foolish one at that
Sumo's mom's debts happened 20 years back...10 years later only Ramnath's wife left him...so I don't think they were connected in any way...Shravan is already scarred about his mom...don't want the poor boy going through a repeat of that regarding his dad...
I remember there there is a time lapse of ten years. But, this serial has revolved around certain issues. One amongst them is the fact that Sumo's own perception about herself has oftentimes been questioned on account of her being the daughter of a person who was constantly borrowing money. Shravan in the party had also charged her with being a golddigger. She is constantly counting her pennies.. either at home or at the office. In fact, her very identity is locked up with this issue of money.. And in friday's episode, Sumo is again badmouthed by Chachi on account of her class as being below than her pyaara puttar Pushkar or Shravan.
So, thats what made me think that some sort of money angle can be there between these two families.
But...Look at the TIMING! ...I mean..JUST LOOK AT IT!
Ten years back the wife left Ramnath...and within a day or so, Shavan left for London! Who was she and why did she leave? And why did she not come back for her son???...Is there any chance of the parents reconciling?
I would want the mother to be alive. Reconciliation is possible, since the premise of the whole show was based on reconciliation (Sumo and Shravan). I would like to know why did his mother leave? Ramnath said his mother was like that and also adding that I dont know with whom she might have gone with? That is too disparaging a remark from a father to a son whose world was already shattered. Is this a way to reassure a son who was broken completely.. I am not very sure. It was crass and for me, cruel too. Also, we know that Rmanath and his wife were constantly at loggerheads, a fact which came out in the open during that school incident. So, it was over a period of time when his wife decided to move on. But, why didnt she once came back to her son? Why didnt she try to establish contact with him? What stopped her?
Would love to know the reasons.
We should make some theory on that too.
Yes, lets do form various theories and see who is correct
Chick, your thinking and writing skills are super.. smashing
Thank U, once again...
So, here goes:
1. Shravan's mom was a lawyer too, and she felt suffocated by Ramnath's idea of ideal wife...As he himself described once to Nanu...good girls sit at home and look after the needs of their family...what he sees in both Kamini and her Bahu as well.A lawyer... probably. But, i am not very sure. If she is is as you say a better lawyer then Shravan and his family would have known. I mean like I am in the academic circle, i get to know who is the best in the field. So, if the mother is a lawyer at least Ramnath must be aware. Is he? I agree with you that she might have been a financially independent individual. And his earliest introduction did point towards this definition of a good girl... one who must stay put at home
2. Ramnath misinterpreted his wife...so when he said, she was always on the verge of leaving, all he meant was that she was never interested in sitting at home...but he did say that in a derogatory way...I can still remember the inscrutable expression on his face when Shravan talked about his mother having left them...Even if there wasnt anything sinister, his explanation was so wrong. I remember Shravan himself told at that point that his mother couldnt have left him. So, even though Shravan's anger towards his mother might have clouded his judgement, there shall be new interpretation formulated of his mother in times to come.
3. I feel Shravan's mom has done well for herself, and is probably a better lawyer than Ramnath by now..but in some other place.
4. The mom was a strong woman and felt it was best if Shravan didn't get dragged between his parents...especially since Ramnath sent him abroad the very next day...she would have kept away for her son's peace of mind...
Might be.. I agree with the strong woman analysis and your reasons are also logical. But, then she is also a mother... emotionally it doesnt work for me. Though Shravan left for London immediately and that too for ten long years.. I dont know why I feel there would be more to come out about this angle later
[/QUOTE We are moving on with our theories, arent we?
