Very very sorry for the late reply. I told you I would give it on last monday, but after returning home got stuck up with some work and here too at office got hold with work.
I read it in a hurry and replied you shortly
(it is long compared to others but for me short reply
when I was at my grandma's home.
I wanted to read it again aaramse and enjoy it and then reply. I said it in kool di's thread too.
Now I have read it. Really loved loved this part and admire at your efforts for writing such a long part. really its long. didn't realize it before as I was in the urge of reading yours and that I dont get tired reading your story how much long it might be.
But now saw it while reading it again. Really you have put great efforts.
Every part was wonderful in its own way and had its importance in scenes and dialogues.
Either be it Manav- Savita, Manav-Tarun, Manav-Mano Baba and finally Manav-Archu,
Scenes and dialogues were so strong and I liked and loved it all.
First Manav-Savita aai. As I told you earlier , reminded of kool di's posts on sav aai where she said this hard core was the result of sav's marriage with damo.
This side of Manav-savrelation is a new view which I always thought I will see one day. You have portrayed it well. And hope soon the importance of that ten rupees is known to archu and she helps in mending the relation between manav and sav aai.
Yes, though it seems so selfish on sav aai's part and get so angered for what she did to manav,
atleast for manav sake ,and considering the circumstance she has gone in and the bond they shared from childhood to now, I want this relation to be smoothen up with end result of sav aai remorse for her doings and realize she was wrong once and do things straight.
The beginning scenes of sav aai as new mom to manav and their consecutive scenes was well written and how they get along also very good. how they together shares things and the family burden ,everything goes fine.
Felt sad for manav. Could feel his turmoil. Thinking about all these flashback and thinking whether he has been used all along and does the love was fake, anyone at his position will feel so.
Hope he gets the required strength and peace he wishes for. Mostly I expect from archu to help him get this. I felt so sad for him when he said his baba, I want peace and not love or anything else. Poor fellow how much he has gone thro. But Manav,this time archu was there for you just like your baba said. be cheerful and strong.
I loved it. when did Tarun become archu's lawyer, just like manav asked. surprised. But Tarun as always impressed us. A true friend and a centric fellow looks for the welfare of his friend.
Loved Tarun's POV about archu and how he conveyed this to manav. Yes looking from archu's side , she wasn't too wrong at all. Everyone(readers) know about manav and thats why everyone still not feel comfortable with archu or fully trust her just like manav. But when we think of archu alone, then her doing was to be appreciated just like tarun said.
Tarun's hate for manju greater than his anger on archu...Liked it. Tarun reflects most of the readers feelings. Yes one would hate her as she rejected manav and gone thro divorce proceedings but now as she has return back and as she loves manav and manav loves her, why one will hat her now.
Mano baba's convo with manav was also fine. Mano baba accepts this relationship of her daughter but looks for the benefit of his child.
Then comes Manav-Archu's.
This was the one I most loved.
Really felt good on archu's talk and the way she makes manav feel he did matter and he and his wish is to be prioritized and is prioritized now.
She boldly speaking to him, you cant handle everything as you wish for as you too are a normal person and that I wasn't asking for a best option,I was asking what you want. Love this from her and she taking him out for refreshment and the compliment on his smile .too good. reminded of Sushant and old manav , here when you talk about smile.
Then loved Manav's statement where he give a stress on MY Archana. The way he conveys he doesnt want to see HIS archu in pain. oh manav sweetu , still love flows through all your doings though you try to hid it or control it.
Nikki, As usual you nicely explained everything along with the festival related things too. Still I remember the way you explained that Janmashtami dahi handi thing and Manav's visit to that darga.
Waiting to see Ganapathi festival and the hope and good it brings for ARMAN.
And waiting for this Lal Bagh visit too. wasn't aware of it Nikki.
Totally loved your parts,FF ,your efforts and you.
