Ruqu and her alarm clock

Post by ShaliniRobinson on 2013-11-06, 00:25

What Ruqu missed...
 
Man!! Alarm clocks weren’t invented in those days --- but if they had been, Ruqu darling would've been responsible for the invention of the Snooze button.

*
Snooze #1
She thinks that now Jodha's status goes down several notches and she'd wait in some miserable corner of the Harem for another 'Khema' night.
She tells Jalal to stop playing the game now with 'bechari' Jodha Begum.
 
Madam Ruqu... Jalal is playing but the game has changed. He is now playing you, you silly girl, and he’d been doing that since before he left for Amer!!
 
*
Snooze #2
Even to the pointed hint that she should be 'jealous', Ruqu - blinded by her pride - doesn't see that Jalal refers to Ruqu being J as his wife, not just the Malika-e-Khaas.
She’s missed that the message she sends Jalal’s way is that she is only looking at the matter with the eyes of the queen, not the wife. As a wife, she is not even bothered – though, of course, she was rather much bothered.
I guess that'd call for even more confusion and hurt, when she'd see that neither has Jalal's interest in Jodha decreased, nor is Jodha in any miserable corner of the Harem awaiting another night.
 
She's out in the open that very night, enjoying the Vatavaran and staring dreamily at the Chandrama, soaking in Chandni, and getting Shantiiiiiiii -- with Jalal.
 
Of course, Jalal is getting his share of Sukoon of a different kind, by staring at a different Chandrama and soaking in a different Chandni - of which Jodha is unaware, erm... apparently, on second thoughts.
 
*
Snooze #3
Once again - when she learns that Jodha is cooking for Jalal, she calls it being equated to baandi.
 
Dear oh dear! Jalal has really stooped too low then! He shared his plate with a so-called baandi, even her kind of plate - eating food that she likes.
 
Ruqu has missed that Jalal shared a plate with Jodha, and Jodha did not refuse!
 
*
Snooze #4
She’s proud that she makes the Shah-en-Shah wait; she doesn’t wait for him.
She was proud last time when Jalal came back, having married Jodha – that Jalal always comes to visit her before anyone else.
This time Jalal has no idea of the time - he is busy discussing Gyaan with Jodha.
This time she is forced to look around for the Shah-en-Shah, she is forced to wait.
 
*
Several Miscellaneous Snooze Hits:
 
* Ruqu has clearly missed that Jodha and Jalal are now having plenty of communication - which was one of the many crucial missing bits in their relationship earlier.
* She's missed seeing how Jalal assured Jodha - who was still taken aback - that if no one had supported Jodha, he'd support her.
* She's missed seeing that Jalal had agreed to step down from the throne, but refused to force Jodha into changing her religion. (Something even Sharif-ud-din sees!)
* She's missed seeing what Jodha had also missed seeing - Jalal didn't need games or toofans or khemas to claim his right as a husband. Jalal has clarified this to Jodha (and as Moti very well pointed out - it is the man's right as a husband, for cryin' out loud! Of course, and as expected - Jodha accepts that this is her pride :))
 
~~~

LOVED:

* LOVED the way Jalal accepted he’d never understand women. Ha ha!

* LOVED the way Jodha goes on in her self-righteous speeches about her wife duties.

* LOVED the embarrassed understanding on Jalal’s face when Hamida announces that everyone leave Jalal and Jodha tanha

* LOVED the way Jodha sneaks a glance at Jalal while she serves his lunch.

* LOVED the way Jodha begins to thank Jalal and Jalal goes Qubool Hai before she's finished - Aww moment!

* LOVED the way Jalal now (quite often) hastens to explain his compliments to Jodha, before she explodes in anger. He senses what comments would result in fireworks and rushes in with mitigation plans.

* LOVED the way Jalal sends off his guards with a nod when he sees Jodha reading by the moonlight - almost as tho, 'get going boys! the wife is here!'

* LOVED the way Jodha imitates Jalal; and LOVED the way Jalal admits that he would've stated the very same and in the very same way - slightly sheepishly :)

~~~
By The Way…
 
BTW #1
Moti's reaction to Jodha's self-righteous speeches and even to Jodha's explanation to Salema was fantastic!!
Even Salema was quick to point out that Jodha had been a wife for a good few months before this fact dawned on her one bright morning that it was a wife's dharma (or something) to cook for her husband.
Jodha, of course and as usual, missed that Salema was pointing to Jodha's own changing feelings for Jalal and was only teasing her as a friend would.
 
*

BTW #2: It was nice to see Jalal get the kind of attention from Jodha that he'd been yearning for.
It was nice to see Jodha finally treating the palace as her home, and this comes with her acceptance of Jalal as her husband.

*

BTW #3: I'm a tad amazed - though not much - that Jalal didn't care to state the truth to Ruqu. He didn't tell her that he'd been teasing her. He’s lied again – or rather, he’s told Ruqu that truth that he did share the Khema with Jodha, but he’s let her come to her own conclusions – he’s not cared to clarify or dissipate her presumption.
It seems
1. He is not accountable to anyone, least of all regarding his nights with his wives; and
2. Is he bent on proving to Ruqu that just because of the one night he’d not lose interest in Jodha? That Jodha is more than a mere conquest or an interest? That what he’s been (and Maaham’s been) pointing to Ruqu is about being wife – a wife that Jodha is becoming and Ruqu never did?

Oh for love of humani... erm... power, or whatever works for you, Ruqu - Wake up!!
*

What a post Shalini. Love it. Ruqu surely needs lots of alarm clocks to get that wake up call. Maham , Adham and even Sharifuddin have understood but not her.
It's her pride and overconfidence which is not letting her see. She is still under the impression that Jalal does not have a heart and has missed the vital signs of he having one.

Actually, I feel - I might be wrong but - that Ruqu's eyes might only open when she realizes how far the 'damage is done'.
Jalal had a habit of being a parrot and relating everything in his mind about Jodha in front of Ruqaiya. He told her even the conversations he'd had with Jodha.
Now... for quite some time, Jalal has been guarding his privacy with Jodha. He does not tell Ruqu everything. He denies her the haq of telling him what to do. He chooses to tell lies or half truths to Ruqu. He has noticed Ruqu wanting to rule his relationship with Jodha and he has not appreciated it.

In effect, he is not letting Ruqu in between him and Jodha.

The day Ruqaiya sees that she is no longer number 1 on Jalal's list of people he trusts, or that she is no longer one of the three pillars on which, as per her, Jalal stands - it might be... and already is too late.

Loved your post Shalini. Loved every bit of the episode. OMG, you can see the love in Jalal's. Eyes for his begum. Mashallah, to die for looks ! Ammijaan is playing Cupid to the hilt. Love it. Both mother and son trying their best to put some akal into their bahu's head.. And she is slowly but surely coming around. Hey, no one seems to have mentioned the fact that Jalal asks Jodha to not waste water when she was pouring water to cleanse his hands. Hey, here is the environmentalist from the 16th century who knew even then that water is a precious commodity. Hats off Jalal.

Rajat, as always, you rocked it man! Love you much. Falling in love with you each day. God bless! And Paridhi, didn't know you were so good at mimicry. You came pretty close to imitating Shehehshah's sexy voice. You go girl!

I agree! Love is so plainly visible in Jalal's eyes, I'm surprised that Ruqu hasn't spotted it. One can only think that she's too focused on Jalal's dimaag that she's completely blinded herself to the fact that Jalal found his heartbeat, and it beats for Jodha.

Too soon, she may remember the day when Jalal joked with her about - Hum mohabbat karte hain Jodha begum se.

and Oh yeah! the king does have his head in the right place regarding environment too. I missed that detail and thanks for pointing it out :D


Rajat has been a tremendous actor. He is literally breathing, eating, walking Jalal. Thanks to the people who are drawing out the character, Rajat is also able to add dimensions to Jalal that were not initially visible. He's becoming more human than just a one-facet character.

Yes... anything she does now to get Jalal away ... will probably only result in further closeness of the two.

I felt.. perhaps Jalal was just testing to see how Ruqu takes it. The last time he'd talked about being in love with Jodha had Ruqu having a near heart-attack. I think if we saw the envy on her face, so did Jalal. But i think he really wanted to see how Ruqu would react to the news.
