Yes she doesn't think what problems that her helping nature will land her in - is it because she is stupid or is it because she doesn't think about herself?
Ummm... if we are talking of only Anandi, then she is one character who NEVER thinks. Either she acts out of impulsiveness or sits on some important information leading to a serious damage (mostly beyond repair).
But I am not talking about just Anandi here or just this Anandi- Ratan promise situation. I am talking about how CVs only show extremes in every situation, when most of these situations are quite controllable or have simpler solutions. Not just Anandi or Ganga, but to show a high-voltage drama, suddenly either characters appear as emotional fools or those who have lost their thinking capacity, or otherwise characters become selfish and insensitive.
I have never been convinced on the below situations and many others:
- How Shiv managed to get fooled by Rasika and how Rasika managed to come across so bold?
- Why Shekhars agreed to marry their daughter to a two-timed divorcee and an ex of their current DIL
- Why Singhs simply bowed down to SaJa alliance, without assessing its compatibility or awkwardness
- Why Anandi chose not to expose DB after the drug drama
- Why she did not think of leaving her sick daughter at home instead of taking her along to save Pooja's wedding.
My point through the above questions is that, to create a traumatizing situation or an action-packed drama, CVs leave obvious loop-holes, which makes it hard to accept the situation or feel sympathetic towards any character.
In this particular situation, there was no need for an uninvited drama of Anandi promising something that's actually not her call and Ganga getting all hyper about it. The same situation of Ratan requesting to meet Mannu could have been handled more subtly. The focus of drama in this situation (Ratan-mannu) is not between ganga and anandi, rather it is Ganga against Ganga.
As for Ganga's character, I have found her to be opportunist during her initial phase with Singhs, but then I would also give her the credit of putting with her husband's ex in the same roof for 11 years, and can understand her current outburst wrt Anandi.
Since enough and more has been said about all those issues happened pre leap
Will confine here to this particular situation.
Don't know whether Anandi meeting Ratan was an unvited drama or not since Ganga would have reacted the same way who ever came up with this message that Ratan wanted to meet Mannu.
Or may be Ganga would not have been so belligerent if it had been someone else.
Anandi's intention was not to interfere had she wanted to change the things that are happening in BH she would have done long time back.Over 7 years they have given enough evidence about Anandi's perseverance and how she can persuade people but it doesn't look like she has done any such thing.in BH and Jagya Ganga's lives.
She herself made a promise it is her basic nature to reach out to people in distress and that is what separates her from others her personal losses she doesn't count and that's what is essence of Anandi and that is the reason her story is worth being told.
She made the promise without stopping to think not because she is stupid she only saw a deperate dying man but she herself realised that it is not possible for fulfilling that promise.
She told Jagya and Ganag why she made that promise and Ganga didn't see it the way she saw the issue and she left it after apologising to Ganga.
Ganga was angry with Anandi because according to her Anandi could only see Ratan's pain and did not remember what she went through in Ratan's hands. How right was Ganga to accuse Anandi of that. Ganga was a stranger to her when she got her son back to her and now Ratan is a stranger to her when she decided to help him.
It is Ganga;s resentment which plied up over years that is speaking Anandi had been same way back then and now too. Only now that Ganga has stopped trying to be Anandi and her mask is falling off.
As a member of that household when things were happening right in front of her eyes like they way Jagya Ganga were arguing at the breakfast table she may have stepped in to diffuse the situation or she may have given suggestions now and than when the conversation was happening right in front of her. So the question interference doesn't arise there.When people are living together willingly or unwillingly they have to make an attempt to live together in harmony sharing ideas and accepting suggestions..May be Dsa and J found her suggestions more acceptable than Ganga's so what is she to do about that? By her own admission Ganga herself said that Jagya listens to Anandi more than herself. If Jagya Anandi happen to be on the same page what can Anandi do about it?Does she have to change her thoughts or live like a stranger? By Anandi's talk with Dsa it was quite obvious that Jagya heeding to Anandi was the problem for Ganga and is that called interference?
Shivam ringing up Jagya for ice cream or Mannu asking Anandi aout her opinion about his decision regarding schooling which were just a by product living under one roof and comfort levels.Do we say interference in all thise things?
Is Anandi butting in and disrupting their lives or is it Jagya and Ganga bringing Anandi up in their conversation to score points against each other?
We can't really say all this happened over night.Ganga's resentment of Anandi and her paranoia didn't happen over night and if it happened not because of Anandi it happened because of Dsa and Jagya.
