  1. She is different and just for the same reason she is so interesting!…I had once asked the same doubt…regarding the thrashing one…the wife on screen seemed to be fit and healthy yet she was bearing all the thrashing coming her way from her husband(who by the way would have flung into air even with a gentle breeze :D)…and I had declared then and there that I would defend or give it back if I were in such a situation…luckily(for my husband 😉 ), a situation as such didn’t arise… 😀

  2. “The Unfit Miss” would turn out to be the most Fit Miss in this Unfit World 🙂 🙂 Seems like as if I have heard this before in various conversations 🙂 “Why” and “why not” are the predominant questions, and that is how people grow!! Very pertinent points raised and yet there seems to be not just one answer to them!!
