Oh sigh! I'd hate a rona dhona ballad inspired by this AnYa track where Anant remains oblivious, but Navya realizes - but I thin left on their own - she will come to the realization first. Acceptance is another matter - if Anant figures the doings of his heart, he might.
So this is my understanding. He's enjoying this out of character change in his life. He likes Navya - she's his kind of girl, in almost every way - the kind with whom he can be in a position where Sonia was opposed to him, where he gets the upper hand in taking first steps, making the moves, and not being over whelmed by the boldness of the other... I suppose he's lacked control all his life. Not in the subservient way - no he's not the bow his head and listen guy. But he's just been the good son, who genuinely believes and respects all that is told and taught - and this is the first time really, that he's just being impulsive... The high feeling of it is sort of meddling with his reason and logic - so much that even when he thinks and confesses he's different with Navya than he usually is, he doesn't question it...
Then again - we should give more weight-age to how many times he's repeated his query of whether he's making her mad, or annoying her, or being too pushy... and the likes. Its almost proof of his deep and distant understanding of the changed person he's become - but till she keeps being agreeable and letting him push her around his way, he'll never really come to question it seriously - I think...
So for now, he's just enjoying this first of doing his own thing feeling in his life - and everyone who he's conversing with is all encouraging about it - Nimi, his friends, even Navya... so even if there was that tiny conscience trying to ebb its way up, it wont really succeed this way. As for Bhabhi and Shagun's repeated insinuations and mean remarks, he'll probably just brush them off as unwanted interference. The kind of hurdles one has to be aware and careful of, while having his side fun - just like when he told Navya they weren't committing a crime coming to his place together, then within seconds, he told her to come by herself... so he's just going to sidetrack them - they aren't important enough to him. He needs a real eye opener - his parents, or Navya... one of the two - to jerk him out of this new found high!
My take on Anant there. It sort of explains his paradox existence. Where he gets all tongue tied and gets all chatty within seconds of difference. He's escaping the inevitable and impending, and he might be just just just aware of it - but he's pushed the cognizance too far away from himself at the moment to bother himself. But he does bother about her. The fact that he knows there is trouble in all this, and can be more, is evident from how he keeps checking on her end... not just in concern for her - but in unknowing awareness of what will eventually happen!
Its funny that way - but personally I think many adolescent love stories are like that. You know them all the time, when you look back in retrospect, but in the middle of their making, the obvious just continues to evade you for the longest time...! And the reason i think Navya will come to realization sooner, is because she's not completely shutting herself off from the consequences of the change in her life, and her person. She lapses into temporary dazed phases when he's around and being his charming endearing self - but her reality checks are far more vivid at the moment... And Navya, in being Navya, is going to figure this out. Cause she just can't help but wreck her poor brain with persistent over time, thinking, thinking, and thinking some more phew!!! I do run on :| But these are interesting characters with potential. Like you, I have my apprehensions of their story in future being executed half baked, and that would be so unfortunate! But for now, I'll just be optimistic! Its never too bad to be hopeful, yeh?!
