Lets start from the start of the week! Silly suicide threats and implied confessions later Arnav admits to having married Khushi to save his sister! Yeah Right!!! Why didn't he humiliate her and throw her out instead? The same old lines of being the gold digger and opportunist would have done the trick minus the marriage. But what made Arnav marry her? It was his own hurt ego! He knew someone had hurt him so bad, he wanted her to know what it felt like! how dare a woman make Arnav Singh Raizada walk the path of love and then change course mocking at him saying " it was never you"... Takes me back to second promo on the show where you see a stark contrast in their personalities ...
Khushi: kisi ko apna banana ho toh pehle unka dil jeet lo
Arnav: khareed lo usey ...
... and that's what both of them are doing right now. While Khushi after an initial fit of anger and out burst realized it was her love for him that was more important, Arnav chose to conquer the situation by brutally snubbing it. Inference: The problem is same, only the way the two set out to find a solution seems to vary thanks to the people they are!
This week at least set a few things in perspective for me.
Khushi has finally managed to realize what she feels for Arnav and what he thinks of her is of utmost importance to her. When you are in love, you don't care for the world, because your world lies in the person you love- whether the person embraces you, bruises you or abandons you, you take it all in the stride of your relationship! It becomes that one relationship that you are willing to die for. This if you ask me, is half the battle won!
For all this while, I would often wonder how the makers would bring about the realization of love in Khushi's heart. In the last two weeks they neatly and smoothly did. Even though it may have been an amateur suicide attempt, one thing became evident, Khushi Kumari Gupta was willing to die for the sake of the happiness of the man she loves. She was willing to forgive him for all the pain he put her through in a blink because, in her going away she thought would lie his happiness.
Lets now talk about Arnav. He poses an exterior that claims nothing about her matters to him. He wishes to believe he is merely doing his duty by marrying this girl who is otherwise a trouble maker. But to what extent has he managed to keep it that way? When she is in pain he cant sleep, and when she sheds a tear he runs to her rescue to wipe them! The thought of her wanting to end her life makes him rush to the spot to save her and clarify his stance. Why didn't he leave her to die presuming it to be good riddance? After all she was the one sole cause for all the problems in everyone's life according to him! What was the need for Arnav to explain to Khushi that he perhaps never loved Lavanya? Why was her safety so important to him? Why the hell did he agree to go and live in her little house giving up the comforts of his palatial home?
Well too many questions already posed, here are some answers as I understand them. To Arnav until the entry of one Miss Khushi kumari Gupta his heart was merely a commodity that the human body struck a deal with to keep life going! The inconsistent pattern that the little thing took subsequently is what has always caused immense agony in Arnavs life. Every now and then he has to battle with the conflict of interest between his heart and his head. He, Arnav Singh Raizada could not have loved a wrong woman! He could not have let his heart get away with feeling whatever it did.
This week more than cemented that when Arnav almost thrice blurted out how it was what she did in terms of betraying his trust and breaking his heart that made him miserable. He wanted to be the most important person in her life, but on learning she had given that place to someone else, he could not take it. This is pretty evident when he puts himself first while questioning her and asking her how she could do this to him and her family. The Main here being the key word! "Tumne mujhe batana zaroori nahi samjha" he pleaded helplessly. That expression almost gave him away as the little boy in him couldn't pose a tough exterior anymore.
Through out the week, as he kept silently praying that all the accusations made against her would be proved wrong by some stroke of magic wherein he could ease the pain inside him as well! She is the key to his happiness as well as his torment! He didn't want to hate the woman he has begun to matter the most in the world to him! And today as he kept debating time and again, he wanted things to become alright somehow!
A man who cant take a change in her behavior, her attitude or her actions clearly shows Arnav Singh Raizada is a goner. With time he has slowly accepted her for who she is and will always love her for the person he knows her to be! So where is the problem? He loved her running all the way to the airport to stop him. He was thrilled at her wanting to prove her innocence. All of this because, she was doing it for HIM! He was the focal point and it was him she was holding at priority!
Arnav Singh Raizada is like a child that needs constant pampering. He needs love, and attention. While he has all his favorite toys around him to play with, his mother will always be his most important play mate! He will always want to have her in sight. If he doesnt get to see her he will kick up a fuss and cry and make sure she gives him all the time even if it means she will have to skip cooking lunch for that day or do her daily chores. Khushi has almost begun to become that in Arnavs life. Thats why he felt the pain of going away from her. Though everything around him was defying logic his heart was almost screaming its lungs out asking him to believe her!
While he may not be her Mr. Right, he is still Mr. Raizada alright! I now await the day Khushi will let Arnav know her haal-e-dil and would then like to see what effect it would have on our man! As Anjali rightly put it, it will now be Khushi who will have to shed her ego and drive things for the sake of their relationship and by the looks of it Mrs Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada seems more than happy to be doing that!!! Will distance only make the heart grow fonder and feelings deeper? We are all set to find out ...
