It is said that eyes talk. Kumud found out in today’s episode that indeed they did, or at least Saraswatichandra’s eyes spoke to her. They spoke to her of his solitude, his pain, himself. And just like that- she fell in love with them. Whether she is in love with Saraswatichandra himself, remains to be seen.
What this is that she feels she is not sure, but she is surely intrigued by the idea of Saraswatichandra as her bridegroom, her life partner. So much so that she has already started dreaming of him. It was just yesterday when she had said there was no man that she would say yes to, no one who would be worthy in her eyes. She was cut above everyone else. She wanted the man to prove himself before she gave him any regard. And yet, we find Kumud’s heart melting just at the sight of his eyes. She dreams of him- of his eyes but can’t see the rest of him and wakes up with a jerk. Her heart is beating frantically in her chest, busy anticipating the time when she would see him in person.
Saraswatichandra, on the other hand is in a tussle of his own. He has promised his late mother that he would always accept and obey his father’s wishes. But this one wish goes against everything he wants- peace, solitude, spiritual awakening, etc.
How can he live the life of a monk, how can he attain peace for his tormented soul, if he is bound tightly to this material life? How will get away from it all if he commits his life to another soul’s wellbeing? Desperation and frustration run amok in his veins. He runs in the vast expanse of the Dubai desert and declares that he will not marry that girl. To me, he is like a child who knows in his heart that it is right but won’t accept it.
The character of stepmother Ghuman, played by Monica Bedi is shaping up quite nicely I’d say. After being in the limelight for lots of wrong reasons, finally Monica has hit jackpot with Sc. She is portraying the stepmother of Saraswatichandra. She has risen from the low rungs of the society to riches, by seducing a rich tycoon Laxminandan, whose son Saraswatichandra is. All she wants now, is to remove Sc from the road to complete her goal. Her son studies away from home and she is soothing his path to becoming sole heir.
We’d seen yesterday that she doesn’t want her stepson to get married. Today it became clear why. She wants him to take the path of a Sanyasi- to leave everything behind and becoming a monk. She wants him out so that her son becomes the only heir of her husband. I shall wait to see what she does to stop Sc from marrying Kumud.
