ILKDM # 36 - Two queens !

Post by Tanthya on 2013-11-06, 16:51

So a new chapter beginneth in the tale of  Jodha-Jalal , The slate is being wiped clean , ready  for imprinting a new chapter, a chapter of learning, of understanding , of being friends ..Love is far away, a tiniest speck in the distant horizon , unapproachable, remote  and unattainable  but never mind ... The way of attaining love is  through the kitchen!


The contrasting personalities of Jodha and Ruqaiyya was brought out well in y'days episode , it also laid the ground work on why Jalal will get drawn to Jodha and WHY jalal should be drawn to Jodha.

It is not a hidden fact that Jalal  has not felt anything approaching 'Mohabbat' towards Ruqaiyya  nor has he ever  treated her like a woman who had to be protected, cosseted and treasured, It has more often been a business transaction .. U do my thing/u please me ..I reward you with  xyz  on Jalal's part  while Ruqaiyya has been ..I have done XYZ thinggy for you and u should   reward me with ABCD thinggy.. compounding this factor are other traits..Jalal  who has grown up with Ruqaiyya considers her as his partner in crime but not a companion for life, He values her mind , her counsel  but thinks there is nothing to value or respect in her character or emotions. Not far behind is Ruqaiyya who loves Jalal  for what he stands and not for who he is , To her he has been a play mate who is instrumental in keeping her happy, her puppet who will do her bidding, a means to maintain her sway  over the harem, the opium that intoxicates and exacerbates  her thirst for power. Ruqaiyya is a woman who is so confident of her own status that she remains oblivious of the impending threat to her monopoly of Jalal. Jalal being his forthright self has given her a clear hint stating that she should  be jealous of Jodha as a WIFE but Ruqaiyya has pooh poohed away such a suggestion..sending out a clear signal to Jalal that she is more of a partner than a wife to him, She is a woman who sees her profit in every wheeling dealing , A woman who worships herself first and foremost and then worships herself again . conceited, puffed up complacent and sorely tempting the wandering furies to set her up for a fall and a gigantic one too.

In the pantheons of Greek lore, Goddess Hearth  is one of 12 great Gods  she is the one who keeps the home fires burning ,  were she to move away the whole ensemble would fall down, she and Hera keep the family of Gods Intact and in good humor, Hearth provides that vital aspects , contentment, satisfaction, She was considered to be a giver of domestic bliss and blessings.. somewhat like Jodha .. A great princess herself  yet bestirs herself and does the menial task of cooking for her husband  without an ounce of consciousness or embarrassment, not for her the trappings of power but the intentions behind the actions  that matter , A woman who has the ability to look outward , a humility to learn and a honesty bordering on brutality to state the bitterest of truth  damning the consequence that arises out it.

Jodha is a woman who will willingly sacrifice herself for the sake of other people's happiness , who will walk the thorny road to save her loved one's  She is the mother to the orphan Rahim , A woman who showers love and affection with no strings attached , Is it a surprise then that Jalal is attracted to her??  A woman who has no expectation from him, who does not expect  any rewards , who does not mollycoddle him and flatter him for selfish gains ..A woman who has seen him at his worst and is yet to see him at his best nonetheless treats all HIS relatives with courtesy, respect and affection.A woman who is not swept away by the royal splendor and wealth  and  looks only at him ! Why will he not yearn for her approval , for her acceptance .. for it  is not his prowess that Jodha is looking at rather it is his heart, for the first time a Amer princess is searching for the route to that heart  buried deep within the layers of loneliness, sadness, isolation, hurt, pain, mistrust, cynicism ...Jalal has sensed the strong currents and his heart so long buried is tearing down the obstacles , eager to meet that one soul which dared to look at him, into him , to learn  from her the language of love, of trust , of acceptance and soak in the moonlit courtyards filled with the scent of peace, calm  and Belief.

Ruqaiyya will be the queen of Mughal Sultanat but Jodha will forever remain HIS queen  !

Loved the ending lines. Ruq and Ja share a relationship where there is room for much much hota hai type of restlessness. They are over comfortable with each other be it what ever role they want to play with each other that they have completely taken the H and W role for granted.

With Jo, the situation is completely different. There is nothing normal about their acceptance of eacother or their relationship.
Ja hasn't reached a stage where he would seek her approval.. Right now, he knows her as a lady who wouldn't stop being her even if the hell turns over and for the first time, he is loosening his chains to be himself around her too. Slowly they are reaching there
