In the show “Baatein Kuch Ankahee Si” produced by Rajan Shahi, the character of Vijay, portrayed brilliantly by Yatin Karyekar, beautifully expresses the profound emotions and the unbreakable bond he shares with his daughter, Vandu, portrayed by the talented Sayli Salunkhe. Vijay’s words resonate deeply, touching upon the societal perceptions of daughters and the true essence of their significance.
In one emotional moment, Vijay challenges the stereotypes and labels often associated with daughters: “Burden, debt, outsider—people have given these synonyms to daughters.” He reminds us that society has lost sight of the real meaning of daughters, overlooking their true worth. To Vijay, daughters like Vandu represent something entirely different—respect, dignity, blessings, and unwavering support.
As he shares his heartfelt thoughts, Vijay expresses every father’s dream—the desire to see his daughter married in a grand and joyous manner. He longs to provide her with all the happiness in the world. While he acknowledges his inability to fulfill this dream, he admires Vandu for not complaining or dwelling on what they couldn’t have. Instead, she exemplifies the strength and resilience of daughters who do not bemoan their fate but work diligently to shape it into something extraordinary through their hard work and talent.
As he tells the poetry he wrote on Vandu’s birth, Vijay’s words become even more poignant:
“Tapti mitti par, baarish ki saundi khushboo hoti hai betiyaan.
Ghee ki roti par rakha gud ladoo hoti hai.
Yeh bojh nahi, maan hai. Karz nahi, sanmaan hai.
Yahi puja hai, yahi Vandana. Prasad bhi yahi, yahi dua.
Dil pe jo cha jata hai, woh jaadu hoti hai betiyaan”
In the portrayal of this father-daughter relationship, Yatin Karyekar and Sayli Salunkhe convey the profound love, understanding, and emotional connection that define Vijay and Vandu’s bond. Vijay’s words serve as a heartfelt tribute to daughters like Vandu, illustrating that they are not just equal but often superior to sons in their ability to overcome obstacles and shine brightly. The show beautifully showcases the enduring strength of this father-daughter duo, highlighting the deep love and respect they hold for one another.
