Very interesting updates Nisha. Story is getting interesting.

I liked their walk from MM to Sam's. He realized that he should not be talking about his past escapades with II.
So as far as Raman is concerned his father is as much dead to him as his mother is. To him Ranjan is probably nothing more than a caretaker of the house now. 
I am not sure about Ranjan either. It feels like he may not be guilty.  He misses his wife terribly . But he sure acts guilty before his son. II is his only hope to bridge the gap between them.

May be Chachu is right. Raman does not seem to fit in India. He does not like selling cars. He is a straight forward no nonsense  kind of guy and he does not talk. He cannot suck up to people neither can he tolerate people sucking up to him, which is much needed to run business in India at some point or the other. To be honest his knowledge and intelligence will be wasted in that business. Venture capitalism is much more challenging and rewarding. He seems to be so more at home in Paris.He behaves as a guest in MM.
The mystery around Ranjan's scandal is the only thing that might pull him back to India.

But I cannot imagine II as Parisian. She belongs in India among the family. I like their stolen moments in the midst of everyone and everything in India better than their honeymoon in Paris.

Manny appears to be a little distrustful of II now. But she might come around later once she knows II.
So Ranjan gifted Appa and Amma an apartment in chennai. I am not sure if it is Punjabi/rich people tradition to give realestate as wedding gift, but I personally did not like it and I am sure appa and amma won't like it either. Who would want to live in the house gifted by their daughter's in laws?

Ranjan gifted it to her to display his affection for her, and to endorse HER love for her roots, its was harmless he is a good father in law, exponentially wealthy, he is worth 500 crores probably, a Nungambakkam apartment for 3 or 5 crores is peanuts for him, truly. Yes the R&B II relationship is doomed in so many ways... II didnt even open the scroll, its an apartment, Manny has already assumed II wants it

You can only do the right thing in life, you know, you cannot change people's perceptions of you
II is silly and enthusiastic and reckless but is not an idiot

I agree. I am not saying Ranjan did it on purpose to demean Iyers.I feel he is a good man and a softie. He wants to take care of his family and keep them happy. That is why he tolerates chachu's family. Now Iyers are his family too . So he wants to take care of them. But before doing that he should have thought from Iyers's perspective. He knows Appa is not too happy with this marriage.
Ranjan should have left him be for sometime. That gift is an expression of his happiness that his son got married to a fine woman like II, but it might be misconstrued by Appa. II might have to pacify Appa.

Appa doesnt know, he never will, unless Manny tells him, so for now II is safe, Appa's honor is too

I like that Smile. II is one smart woman. She knows what to reveal and what not to reveal to Appa regarding Bhallas.

Okay...page 1 unres! 

 lets talk the update!
I so wanted this sister in law to call up!
It happens...
And...II in despair after the call...
Have read many viewpoints...All matching mine...I have nothing new to say..
I am simply waiting for the relations to unfold...Dramatically or otherwise...
I was amazed at the interpretations made by Errant for a while LOL, well all that being REAL...I could not deny!
Manny has been skeptical...II co-worker hi theek hai uske liye...She has her own concerns...She is not very elated about II being at MM...
for her RB is what matters...She could be happy that her brother is happy or she could be devastated at the answers given by II regarding the house work done taking them way too seriously and deciding her brother is really, actually very much in love and further her hatred towards II..
I dont know...Ab kuch overboard hi ho gaya...
Let me leave Author sahiba some space to roll out the next here ROFL

Dreams of a crazy heart

Sam finally took the baby off her lap wondering how she could sleep so long without being fed, II prayed Sam would leave the blanket behind
She didnt, she held her shirt together and walked in, briskly, bumping into Tan & R&B... without pausing she shut herself in the bathroom

Stood staring at the mirror after fixing her clothes... let the water run... to pretend she was busy

She leaned on the plush marble walls and stared at the make up room like lights around the mirror LED and huge...
the sink was a glass bowl... the hand soap was the expensive Modern Bazaar kind, all natural... hand crafted

She found her eyes filling up with tears at the thought of Appa listening to Manny's conversation with her, what a simple dignified man.
Oh! How much will he hurt... just tremendously... just for the simple reason she chose R&B...
even the two Chithappas hadnt ever spoken to him like that or Jaya Athai's husband, the wealthy film distributor (5% as wealthy as Ranjan though)

"What a HUGE price Appa is having to pay... in Manny's thoughts, but still... her opinion of him would be of a man who raised his daughter to "nab" a wealthy chap

"Ayyo Appa" she muttered...

She was "entitled" to the riches being R&B's wife, but she hadnt for one moment ever accepted or acknowledged or celebrated such ill gotten wealth
She was always cognizant of her status of this floating object in R&B's life... her anchor was hanging loose... Manny did not know that

She stpped out... it was 8:20... "hame chalna chahiye" she said to Sam...

Sam looked at her curiously "Aankhon mein kya hua?"

"I used the natural soap too naturally" II lied

"Oh no! It has neem in it love" Sam cried

"I will be OK" II smiled... looking at Sam in awe, wondered if the same thoughts ever crossed her mind?
 If she ever wondered WHY II married her brother?

Does she also allow herself to think I married him for his money?  
At times when it seems incredulous to her does she let her thoughts stray? Does Manny call her?

She put herself in Manny's place and wondered how it would be if her brother married  the "poor".
She couldnt even conjure up a vision, coz she didnt know what being so wealthy even meant

Tan: they can ride with us, they shouldnt walk

II: SHANTIPATH mein kya hoga I see PCR jeeps every 5 minutes or less

Nyaya Marg Kautilya Marg etc are not patrolled much Ishita" Tan said worried

"Umm... its a short walk" she said

"Ferrari nahi hai but BMW convertible hai" Tan joked

"i am sorry I didnt mean that" Ii said almost tearing up, still smarting from the singing words of Manny

"Heyyy are u OK. I was joking kid!!" he hugged her

II forced the lump down...

Her husband stared curiously...

"Polama?" she asked softly
He nodded... thoughtfully... watching her go wear her shoes... by the door

She rode quietly with Tan in the front, Nandu in the back
 R&B and Sam drove with the baby.

Akka had texted her asking when she should come pick up Shravu

"Saapdave ille... innum... please give me an hour ka?" she begged (we havent eaten)

"OK fine... can I send Bala at 10?" she asked

"NO... I will drop him" Ii said

"NEEYA?" Akka asked shocked

"I can drive" Ii mocked over text

"WHAT HAPPENED?" Akka asked...

" It looks like its going to rain" II said quickly changing topic
Vandita was extremely perceptive... but she let is pass for now

The Chef was getting ready to lay the table... Ranjan was overjoyed

"ONE more reason I love you beta" he told II

She smiled warmly "thanks" "R&B is just being mean", it began to pour outside

R&B chuckled as Sam punched him, handing her Dad the baby...
She was now wearing a orange shorts and green striped tee with orange heart in the center, II's Paris shopping

II walked into the kitchen to check if she can feed Shravu

R&B watched her go quietly

She came back "Will u guys eat now?" "Abhi nahi na?" "Baad mein?" she corrected

He nodded... feeling her cheekbone with his index finger, it was the quiet somber... pensive wife

"U won didnt u" he teased

She stared shell shocked for a minute thinking if he was saying something Mannyw ould

"Oh! woh oreos waali baat? Haan"

Shravu and Nandu were in the second floor
Chachu appeared with the CFO, and Samar and Trehaan their wives had arrived too Sam talked with them, II chatted for a bit too

"My bouganvillea will get soaked" she complained looking out

Sam smiled understandingly...

She went up, he followed her in a few... she had played her ipod, Swanand Kirkire, explained how a crazy heart dares to dream

Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna
Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna

She walked up to the balcony leaning over...
she gently pulled the plant to the inside

... and went back to touch the rain with her hands...

He leaned on the doorjamb hands in his pockets, quiet like a mouse...
just watching, when she bent to pull the flower pot her braid slid to the front, it was now soaking... she felt it softly

She folded her capris upto her knees and set her foot on the rail and watched the rain flow knee down...
over her toes, she spread and joined the toes quietly.

Bavre Se Mann, Ki Dekho Bavri Hain Baatein
Bavre Se Mann, Ki Dekho Bavri Hain Baatein
Bavri Se Dhadkaane Hain, Bavri Hain Saansen
Bavri Si Karwaton Se, Nindiya Door Bhaage
Bavre Se Nain Chaahe, Bavre Jharokhon Se, Bavre Nazaron Ko Takna.
Bavra Mann Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna

She folded her arms across her chest and stared out, like she waited for a cloud burst, or for the skies
to part and grant her wish... she looked up for a star? or the moon? or something?

Bavre Se Is Jahan Main Bavra Ek Saath Ho
Is Sayani Bheed Main Bas Haathon Mein Tera Haath Ho
Bavri Si Dhun Ho Koi, Bavra Ek Raag Ho
Bavri Si Dhun Ho Koi, Bavra Ek Raag Ho
Bavre Se Pair Chahen, Baavron Tarano Ke, Bavre Se Bol Pe Thirakna.
Bavra Mann, Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna

Gently wiped her face, the trickle from her parting crimson..
she  caught it from the tip of her nose and smeared her capri to see the color and smiled

Bavra Sa Ho Andhera, Bavri Khamoshiyan
Bavra Sa Ho Andhera, Bavri Khamoshiyan
Thartharati Low Ho Maddham, Bavri Madhoshiyan
Bavra Ek Ghooghta Chahe, Haule Haule Bin Bataye, Bavre Se Mukhde Se Sarakana,
Bavra Mann, Dekhne Chala Ek Sapna

The song ended and another one did not play...
She turned and found him staring at her soaked form

"You are here?" she asked, not at all expecting to be the object of his undulating attentionShocked
"WHERE would I be?" he thoughtEmbarrassed
