Mandira is fortunate to have two good children who turned out ok as far as their basic nature is concerned. As for other things in life like happiness, success , wants and wishes, it's always a seesaw. For whatever time she has given to Ashvin or not given to leela...She has pretty ok kids. All the family bonding they did when the dad was alive is still keeping them close knit .
But with our kind of system lots of equations have to be managed on a day to day basis. We even if , left to our own , will still want to be connected because most of us have observed only that while growing up. It's going to take somebit of perseverance to get the family to not just look at them as a couple but also accept them for who they are. Time's running out for Mr. Shanbag's y&y and it's truly catch 22 for Trisha
Yes, very true Kalpana - Mandira is fortunate to have these two. I see the love for his mom in Ashvin. He defends for Leela when Daddu interrogates. They might fool around, pick on each other but that's all part of a healthy sibling relationship. Basic character is important, others are sprinkles on the icecream!
Leela has come in with a high energy. Let's see what impact she makes to bring these two closer.
