Well said, Ana! I agree with almost all your points !
I love it when you say that, Appu. Makes me excited for what is to come from you
See, dint I tell you Ana that telling Dutta the truth is going to be risky. You said all Nakku needed to do was tell him that she saw the snap, but I
knew somewhere inside me that Dutta would still not believe her!
Now, now, darling. Before you get Kala-confident... I strongly believe that Dutta would've believed her eventually had she been honest from the start. She might've followed Nana and, when she got home, told Dutta the truth - he would've gotten angry, etc., but there would've been no lies between them. Neither from her nor from Baji.
Technically, she told AS the truth about going to the mandir, because she did. The fact that she went somewhere else asides from that is a whole other debate. I'm not saying that was wrong either.
Dutta does believe Naku, deep down. It just takes him more time to accept things. Which is why she needs to persistently rub it in.
Dekha, tumse acha main jaanti hoon apne darling ko !
Pssh. Whatever you need to believe *pats your head pittyfully*
Now just imagine, as you said, if Nakku and Baaji had ACTUALLY told Dutta before going to find the truth, you really think they would have been allowed to?
Maybe not, but then they shouldn't have done it. I stick to my belief. Means must be right to reach the right end. I know you'll use the "what if someone you loved could die" theory here (although that theory can't exactly be applied here as there're other factors involved when creating a hypothetical situation - and I feel that most hypothetical questions aren't useful, especially 'cause they're, well, hypothetical. What if, what if, what if. You know?)
But for the sake of debate, let's assume that someone I loved was in danger.
Now I could choose to do something wrong and save that person. Would I do it? (This is a matter of spiritual beliefs as well, mind you. It's a matter of your perspective on life and death and morality.)
Personally, I believe that two wrongs don't make a right. Thus I wouldn't do wrong to save a person. What I would do is put my faith in God and do everything that I possibly could in the right way, with the right means, to save the person - and leave the rest to God. It's my faith Him that sustains my strength throughout whichever test/trial I'm put through. You do what you can, in the right way, and if that wasn't enough, then you leave it to God.
And if they dint, they would never have found the truth that they found now. So Dutta's reaction has proved that Nakku-Baaji were right.
Perhaps they were right because they lied to him the first time, so he had two blows in his face followed by Nana-Damodar revelation?So its Dutta's limitations (related to listening, understanding,
trusting, distrusting, handling emotions, etc.) that forced Nakku and
Baaji to do things without letting him know. So if Nakku and Baaji are
wrong, so is Dutta.
This I agree on. All parties are wrong in their own ways
