Well, Krishna never considers her mother as apt mate for intellectual talk. That is given and understood. No argument about that.
We have seen plenty of times, Krishna reacting to Saraswati only in bounds ..she either will give in to her mother's wish or will not. It will be either yes or no. Never will she have any argument with her.
Why would a girl do that when she had plenty of evidences before, like getting the cerificate torn etc...
And that is the reason why she stops her father from arguing with her mother day before yesterday. She keeps the matter between herself and her mother and chooses to stay quiet at that minute, but then next day does not stop even for 2 minutes deliberation before visiting Pinto.
My point was ..I get it that Saraswati having got the role to be nurturer, has become like the way she is. But my argument is qualitatively this is not good. A woman reduced to not use her finer intelligence, but just take care of mundane responsibilities...its tough, I get that. When Krishna became BDO and Saraswati saw her on Television, she forced herself to see things differently. She remembered the torn certificate scene. This is character growth. Earlier in giving the undiluted milk, she showed yet another growth.
Sarwaswati is now falling to new kinds of challenges...having to deal with a BDO daughter. I guess its going to be difficult for her also, from now on. There is no tradition here to follow. So what kind of fall out we will have between these two women, we will have to wait and watch.
So I have collected my thoughts to see Saraswati from this poor mother's struggle point and how she manages, what are her means to ends, how much ego she allows for herself and where can she let go of her pride or ego or for that matter allow love.
When in school, one of the all time favourite hindi assignment for our teachers was asking us ti write essay on "GARIBI EK ABHISHAAP" .. (Poverty is a Curse). OMG, it used to be the most boring one and head racking one on what to write and what not to...So I am kind of now in that state watching Saraswati and Ravi.
And would you guess why that essay was so important ? It was because of Indira Gandhi so famous "Garibi Hatao"
Political campaign post emergency period. So it was a political subject and children like us forced to understand Garibi and its implications, ramifications and how to get out of it.
