She wants "laddoo in both her hands" and that's perfectly ok to wish for
That is Devki for u . And she is as naively idealistic as Baa and Master .
Baa and Master represent idealism . IMV represents materialism .
Devki is the pupil of former .
If this serial proceeds by showing idealism winning , it will soon become predictable , boring and unrealistic .
Just look at it . A chit of a girl ...with intelligence , a fresh graduate from London's business school , constantly defeating an established A,mbani kinda businessman .
Degrees are NOTHING in front of experience . This is MY experience in life .
Her two defeats are so EASY . By outbidding him with reverse strategy in a bid and now giving a flamboyant speech in front of aviation commitee ...why wud they drop an established company over a novice BEATS me .
Well , is there gonna be a THIRD defeat too ? and a FOURTH ? Coz then , this serial gets PREDICTABLE .
She is a nice girl , but at times she is too idealistic is my only criticism of her .
Honestly ...do Master and Baa and Manhar's philosophies work for even ONE day in this kaliyuga ?
Nope . The day Manhar left the house , and mind u , IMV had made it clear he wud have to leave two days earlier ...he had no clue WHERE he was gonna go , that too with BAA in tow .He was sitting on the roads with hischin in his palms till BB coincidentally drove up .
Don't tell me Manhar didn't even know how to look for rentals .
There r far too many such co incidences in this serial . BB driving up was one ...Manhar on committee and favoring Devki was one .
Was that really Devki's acumen or was it her luck that she met a fellow idealist ...the son of Sri Krishna Baa on that commitee who approved of her idealism ?
And strongly disapproved of his brother's materialism ?
So was Devki's second success actually a get together of ISMS ?
No one will ever know the mystery .
I feel CVS flawed Devki's first success by putting Manhar on that committee .
They shud have shown a neutral commitee and Devki winning this on her own .
Why does Devki wear typical saris when she is such a young dashing girl ? I expect more from this serial that dared to show non bitchy women for a change .
This serial is not about WOMEN Vs MEN at all . Its about two different approaches towards life ...idealistic and materialistic .
While I don't denounce the latter totally , I do not applaud the former either . I never applaud anything thats impractical .
Anup , ur right . Ego is not just about MONEY . Ego on a subtle level can exist regarding many things ...values , sanskaars , truth , ideals ...children , capability !
IMV's parents have ego about their values , their way of upbringing , their way of cheerfully accepting poverty .
What they cannot really accept is their offspring ...THEIR product , rejected THEIR way of thinking and thought independently on his own . IMV saw the same poverty with different eyes . He saw his mother's struggle differently . he chose not to glorify something over which he had no control . He chose to fight it and turn his back on it .
if IMV says constantly IMV ka BETA etc , so do his parents keep saying MOTILAL MASTER KA BETA or BIWI etc .
Tthis ego battle of names is often seen between Father and middle aged son .
I often get the impression that Baa is angry with IMV as he doesn't really think his father is some one special . Thats the aura THEY both created but IMV didn't fall for it . He had his own mind . That HURT Baa . IM loves his father as a son ...that filial feeling is there , but he doesn't hail him like a god as they wid like him to . He has a silent contempt for his father's SOCH . That rattles them .
IMV's punishment for this is ...they ostracize him . They r sarcastic towards him . They sit , eat , under his roof and hold contempt for his materialism . They do not grant him the latitude to have ego for whatever he accomplished in life .
He was a simple matriculate from a remote village in Gujrath ...Mangrol ...he was no London Business School graduate like Devki .
His success will ALWAYS be greater than Sid , Vaibhav or even Devki's .
Many will laugh at me for this but I see IMV as a victim , not just as a villain . No one really understands him . His mother does , but she is too full of HER ego battle with him .
If IMV is accused of trying to control his sons , Master and BAA r STILL doing it by being actively involved with the sansaar of their middle aged sons . Baa has a say in both ...Ishvar and Manhar's life when ideally she shud be doing Hari Hari .
I wud like to see Devki winning but also losing some . I wud like to see some realisations dawning on her mind too .That , as Anup said , she cannot have laddoo in both hands ALL the time .
One more thing . I really DO NOT see BB as a bichara old man . He was perfectly entitled to refuse Ishvar if he had big plans for his daughter and Ishvar was penniless .But the way he insulted Ishvar was hurtful .
He married his daughter to a spoilt young man named Dalichand who had vices .
His daughter DIED due to that painful marraige .
IMV' hatred of BB arises from his love for Chandraprabha ...he thinks BB is her murderer . Which , in a sense , is true .
IMV faced a personal insult and also saw the horrific death of his Loved one .
BB killed him .
I dunno why , but I am sure that in the end , when IMV has all the power and planning to really crush Devki , he will NOT do so and walk away , really free .
If I had been the author I wud have ended thisstory this way .Dunno how Harkisan Mehta ended . But anyone read Wuthering Heights ?
Heathcliff loses interest in revenge in the end with Cathy's daughter who stands against him .
