Pavitra Rishta…..1st June to 17th June!!!(Ed.)

As i have mentioned earlier, this serial “pavitra rishta” is all about a simple down to earth maharashtrian girl and a boy who will be entering her life ( that’s sushant aka preet from Kis desh mein hai meraa dil’) In the first week we saw  the introduction of Archana’s family and also that how Archana gets refused just because she is not well educated……………and as destiny has written for them they get to pray together at the famous SIDDHI VINAYAK mandir although they dont get to see each other…..

…then in the fifth episode we witnessed how Archana helps a poor boy jo ki chori karta pakda jata hai and usse bachati hai hamari Archana….and right here usko dekhta hai Manav (aka Preet aka Sushant) ….

par woh Archana ka chehra dekh nahi pata bas uski aankhen dikhti hai Manav ko and he’s all into her after this……

*Edited* 10th June:

In the second week we got to know that Manav (Preet) isn’t a rich bloc but a garage owner and he doesn’t believe in the word Love as he wants a simple girl for himself who can manage his home in 15-16 thousand with 5-6 mouths to feed,…..yet his friend forces him to have faith that he will find love in his life………

Or dusri taraf Archana’s mom is makes preparations to go for Ajit’s engagement;…………on the way in the local train again Manav (aka Preet) is there; he recognizes Archana who’s standing with her back towards hi by a burn mark on her wrist however this time for second time he is not able to catch a proper glimpse of her (here, the background music from movie LOVE is perfectly suited).

At the function Archana’s mother where she notices a suitable boy for Archana (Satish an acquaintance of Manjusha’s mom) and woh Manjusha ki mom se Archana ki baat chalane ko kahati hai……………….but she doesn’t instead she makes her aware of some realities and being rude she goes on to say that Satish would never want an illiterate girl for himself as he himself is a Management graduate……………..and here this conversation is over heard by none other than Archana……..

Later at their place Archana tries to console her mother but her sister-in-law (bhabhi) hears it and all this takes the shape of a big fight with Varsha and Vaishali joining in to support their mother…….….as this argument increases Archana bursts into tears and apologizes and asks them to stop fighting over her …….

11th June:

Next morning Archana’s father tries to make her realize that her mother and sisters love her and so they were just standing up for her……..right then enters her friend Madhuri to call her to find a boy who has ditched Swati, their other friend.

Although (in rainy background) the person they are encounter with is no one else but Mannav (Preet) and this mistake lead to coming face-to-face of Manav and Archana; She tells her friends that Manav is not the fellow who has cheated with their friend. They apologize to him but Manav is too happy to meet the girl of her dreams and is completely mesmerised with her; yahan aapna hero  barish mein bhegti heroine ko help karte hue usse umbrella offer karta hai…….

Swati notices the name of Ajit from Archana and gets even more alarmed when she tells her that ajit’s full name is Ajit Lokhande…..

12th June:

The next day, at the wedding Swati is there and she tells Archana that her boyfriend and Ajit are same persons; she creates a scene by raising finger at Ajit and also adds that she was helped by Archana………..

*Edited* 15th June

Well jaisa ki last episode ki ending ke baad hum sabne socha tha, something similar happened that Swati created a scene and so calling off the marriage of Ajit and like we thought sara ka sara blame Archana par aata hai (Swati commented “Archana ki vajah se mujhe Ajit ki sachhaai pata chali hai);

And after this again a lot of crying – (rona dhona n all) with Manjusha’s mom shouting and blaming Archana that whatever happened it was all because of her and she did on purpose coz being 26+ she wasn’t married yet, not only she insults Archana but her mother too…..that their family being poor doesn’t have any values and blah blah blah!!!!

This finally evokes Vinod, Archana’s brother to stand for her sister and to say,” Agar aap Archana ko aapne ghar se nikal sakti hai, toh mein bhi Manju ko………” this leaves Manju (his wife) in shock;  he’s stopped by his mother saying that we aren’t like them and we have treated our daughter-in-law as our daughter from the first day……..she also warns her other two daughters (Varsha and Vaishali) not to be offensive or rude towards Manju when they reach home………after all this drama they all leave for home;

Now, there’s a Manav (aka Sushant) scene that portrays how he was able to concentrate on his work……so enters his friend Tarun, to ask the reason for the same, and to this he replies, “Yaar, aaj meine usko dekha”

Tarun, “Usse matlab”??

Manav, “Ussi train wali ko”…

Tarun, “Jiski tu sirf aanken dekh paya tha, chehra dekhne ke liye taras raha tha (desperate to see her face, he meant)

Manav, “Yaar, aaj meine uska chehra dekha, usne mujh se baat bhi ki”……this gets tarun all excited to ask a chain of questions like who is she, what’s he name, where does she live, etc…..

Manav, “Nahi puch paya, yaar”………… “But why”, asked Tarun and Manav replied, “Arre Tarun, kaise puchta yaar, sharm aa rahi thi mujhe uske samne khade rahne mei; (he was embarassed to stand in front of her) is, is halat mei gaya tha; agar kuch bolta nah toh mawali samjhti muhje, aur waise bhi naam puch ke mein karta kya…..use raaste toh mujhe jana nahi hai”

Tarun, “ Raaste par toh tu nikal chukka hai, ab bekaar ka drama matt kar;……pasand karta hai naa tu usse (manav is silent) ….chal fir uska thikana dundte hai”

Manav, “Yaar, tarun kya bol raha hai yaar tu”

Tarun, “Yaar, mein chahe job hi kahu, tu chahe kuch bhi bol, kitni bhi baar bol,……….lekin tere chehre se saaf zahir ho raha hai kit u kya chahta hai”. “Yaar Tarun chahne se kya hota hai” says Manav…………just repeating that what’s the meaning of thiking of what he cannot get and blah blah……finally saying, “Toh kya hua ki who meri zindagi mei nahi hai, meri aankhon mei toh hai nah who. Jab bhi chahuga aapni aankhen band kar lunga; sapne tutne se acha hai who palkon mei hi ghar kar le”.

Next scene, at Archana’s house it’s an atmosphere of tension; Manju again thinks that all of this happened because of Archana and decides to make her life a living hell..

Let’s see what happens next…….!!!!

16th June

In this episode, both parents of Archana discuss on what happened at the wedding; as they go to sleep she starts crying, thinking all what was said to Archana. In the morning, she wakes up to see Archu again to her routine work; she thinks “don’t these things affect Archu or she has adjusted her life to all sufferings”. She helps Archana in the kitchen where she observes that her mom had been crying all night and so consoles her. Then she takes her niece school.

Again a lady, neighboring Archana takes on the same topic and tells her how this could affect Archana’s marriage prospects……this overheard by Vinod (Archana’s bro)…..leading to another argument with his wife Manjusha, who like her mother blames Archana for the calling off of Ajit’s marriage.

After what happened with Archana at Ajit’s wedding her father tries to change the view of his wife, of finding a rich, educational boy for Archana; and so takes on the responsibility of her marriage and says that whom ever i choose for he may not suit your conditions but Archana will be happy with him; at this her mother gets worried.

Tarun and Manav going to work when they stop at a signal and Manav notices Archana (dropping her niece at school) and as soon as tarun hears it, he takes a u-turn to follow her and see her stopping at a store – tarun notices her to be the same girl he saw at saree store(mall), at this Manav says that he 1st saw her on the road, then, in the train and then at the coffee shop…….tarun all excited what man “baar baar milna, its all Kismat Connection”; after she leaves, he very quickly goes to the same store to enquire about her and finds out that she lives nearby.

Again, a convo between Archana’s parent’s about her marriage…….its interrupted by a call for Archana’s father at the neighboring kirana store…….the call is about a marriage proposal for Archana, hearing this her mom starts asking all questions and worries.

17th June

A = Archana

A’s = Archana’s mother

The episode begins with Tarun asking Manav to get fresh and come along, and that too without telling him about the place they are going….Manav agrees.

At Archana’s home, her mother is all tensed thinking about the coming boy and prays for her daughter…..

Next, Manav again asks his friend about where he’s taking him….

Vinod reaches home to know about the proposal for Archana and talks to his mother, consoling her that if the boy is not suited according to her then they will not think further…

Next, in the car Manav thinking of all the moments he saw Archana (with a sweet smile on his face)…

The boy who arrives at Archana’s place for marriage is none other than Satish, (whom A’s mom liked for A); she’s surprised and tells Vinod about it……..he says may be God has answered their prayers, she thinks otherwise and decides to tell all truth about A’s education to the boy.

A’s mom tells Satish n his family that she doesn’t agree to this alliance……when asked for the refusal by Satish, she replies how up until now many proposals came for A but things didn’t go well as they found about A being only 8th pass………and it always hurts A and her family.

Satish proves her wrong by telling her that he witnessed what happened at wedding , how A was being shouted at by Ajit’s mother but A didn’t utter a word instead she was trying to look out for her mother and family image…….also how he was impressed by how she takes care of her eight family members, always with a smile on her face and keeping in mind likes n dislikes of all. He continues, “my mother is also a house-wife and he knows that if house-wives stop what they do then no man in the house will be able to go out and earn….” A’s mom is all in tears and realizes she thought wrong about Satish.

Next, Tarun brings Manav here, at Archana’s place and tells him that she’s just like him in status n all. But instead he finds out about Archana’s alliance with Satish and is devastated (poor guy)……
