I am thinking of what other alternatives
How would it be if
II and vandu had told Amma, you go with Appa, we will take care of him in DII .
Would Mr. IYer have agreed to this. Probably yes.
But Amma would hv said no, I feel. She would hv said it will be tough on you , ishita with your pregnancy and not much help. Amma would hv thought about how tge dude and Ranjanji would feel if they were to go to Madurai leaving periappa sick and a pregnant daughter to take care of him.
Feel for Amma here.
So true Kalpana
In a way Appa doesnt give his own daughters enough credit. He is willing to shower praises on Bala for just as much as CHECKING on them. But when his own daughters step in and take charge he feels offended. Typical patriarch, you know

Some things if damaad do its a matter of pride and joy, if daughters attempt the same things its "too big for ur boots"
