Hmm your post definitely made me ponder. There are several different directions I could go.
Firstly, I am not so concerned about Renuka's early marriage, if it happened within legal age limits, by her choice, consent, without any coercion etc and if the husband is a decent enough chap. Because, believe it or not, there ARE some benefits associated with being married in your early twenties. I am more concerned about her early pregnancy. That definitely puts a damper on her future plans to study, work, spend time with your life partner or do anything a girl in early twenties would do. Having kids is most definitely not something that needs to happen at the age of 23, like Dadi had once said. Maybe that's a lesson for all the ladies out there. It is a HUGE commitment and Renuka was clearly not prepared for it, being so young and inexperienced about life in general. Renuka's behavior post pregnancy was unreasonable due to a condition called as postpartum blues, where it is normal for females to get agitated, jittery and/or depressed. To add to that, her husband not showing up to pick her up from the hospital was not fair AT all!
Secondly, like I posted elsewhere: Renuka must've cooked up an excuse for Navya becoz: . 1) She must've
known the truth (or at least guessed it) and probably wanted Navya to
live life on her own terms. 2)That's what sisters do. They cover up for
Thirdly, re: Navya - One could not help but relate to her. She wanted to go, yet was bound by her obligation to her family. She thought she made up her mind not to go, until Anant showed up in front of her building! Pretty sure she's going to feel guilty for having lied to her family later on ... As far as her budding attraction towards Anant goes - I'm going to let others describe that "ehsaas" in detail.
But I must admit, Anant and Navya have this subtle chemistry which is kinda sweet - not explosive sparks flying types at all - just sweet.
