Episode Two: Progressive Factors
Acceptance of Pre-marital Pregnancy
Although Mikesh and Tanya belong to middle-class Indian families, Tanya’s pregnancy does not become a matter of disdain in the household. Everyone accepts it with brief resistance from Mikesh’s grandfather (Asrani) and a worrisome Mikesh’s mother. No one blames or judges the girl. However, the duos’ parents wanting to get the two married at the earliest gives a hint of societal pressure even if it is not overtly spoken of.
Tanya’s father who wishes to marry her aunt expresses his concern over what-the-people-would-say if he marries at a rather old age but soon he overcomes his fears as he recalls how he had forgotten to live for himself while living for his daughter. From playing cricket with neighbourhood kids after his wife’s demise to marrying again, he had supressed his desires until gaining confidence to facing it and getting encouragement from Mikesh and also Tanya as it turns out to be. It tells us that age is just a number indeed.
The Post-Modern man
A man who cries, cuddles and acts cute, according to Mikesh, is the Post-modern man which he suggests Tanya’s father to become. He shuns the idea of being a macho man and declares that the most powerful weapon for a man is tear(s). His father-in-law accepts the idea and hey! It works well for him. They prove that a man who can freely express his emotions, is a man after all and in no way compromises his ‘mardaangi’. What is mardaangi anyway?!
