Love “The higher you build the walls around your heart, the harder you fall when someone tears them down “
Love knocks when you least expect it to. In the case of Ahem, love is coming like a slow breeze and washing away all doubts, insecurities, and negative vibes he had for Gopi. Most importantly his pride is taking a back step as he is slowly realising what Gopi means in his life. Ahem has always given his status and stature more importance than anything else. Anyone or anything below him has always been unacceptable. Can we blame him entirely? No, because any educated, well defined guy would expect a decent educated girl. So if Ahem desired this, it was not wrong. Gopi just got caught unfairly in this battle. But when destiny decides to intervene and make two opposite people come together, one has very little say.
Ahem didn’t have to try very hard to hate Gopi. He put up various defences,a whole suit of armour so that nothing could hurt him. He kept on humiliating her so that she would stay away. Her raw, clumsy and silly little things were enough to annoy Ahem and make him walk in the other direction.
Time passed by. Gopi’s dedication to study, her nature to do good, her innocence in being happy with simple things around her started to pave way in Ahem’s heart. Unknowingly Ahem’s heart started to skip a beat. Gopi with her changed attitude or should we say, Ahem with his changed outlook started to perceive and see Gopi differently? She created and stirred something inside Ahem which he is not been able to understand.
In an interesting twist in Saath Nibhana Saathiya, filled with drama and suspense, looks like Ahem is finally all set to melt towards his wife. In an episode that went by, Ahem was seen rushing Gopi to the hospital after a couple of slabs landed on her in the process of wanting to save Rashi.
When Rangmunch team contacted Ved Raj, the Writer of the Show, and asked him about the current track, this is what he had to say. “Ahem as a character has been very arrogant, egoistic and staunch in his beliefs. However the only person who affects him the most is his mother Kokila and she is the sole reason he agrees to marry Gopi. At the moment the bonding that we are witnessing between Ahem and Gopi is not Love, but is more of concern and affection towards one another. But we also know that eventually this will culminate into a love story. It was a conscious decision to take the story slowly and show a gradual progression in their relationship. Also as per our Indian society, Love after Marriage is a slow process and widely accepted by the audience.”
Will he see this as just care or love? With her being in the hospital, will Ahem break the barriers of formality and step towards Gopi? Will the inevitable happen? A new journey for Ahem and Gopi is definitely in the making.
