In making Paro who she is, I think the unconditional love of her mami has been really key. Her love has been nothing less than a mother's love.
and I really like that it she was a mami and not a masi...These relationships are so easy to portray as lacking, wanting or somehow less than what real love demands. But in this, that's not the case...and I really thank them for that. Paro did not lack love growing up; Rudra had to fight his AND his father's demons all along. Of course there's love between father and son. A gruff love, that is always veiled, never demonstrated, but true love all the same. just unacknowledged openly.
so, in part, different journeys were shaped...
Ahhh I love your perspective!
Yes the mami thing was so done beautifully and was such a different relationship to show. Paro was raised, cared for and loved unconditionally by a woman who was an outsider into their family. She has had such a huge hand in Paro's development and will power to keep loving even when things get rough! Her mami is a great supporting character.
I agree with Rudra's relationship with his father. There is still love there even if it is marred by the betrayal of Rudra's mother. We have seen Rudra reach out for his father, and call him and upon his father not picking up Rudra smiled ever so softly. There is something there, something true, even if it is not always visible.
