One could say, Gutta needs to re-examine her priorities in life. But then, could one even trust her to make a sensible re-examination? I think not. She needs to be forced to make a choice, now. Anything less will not work. And being the contrary type of person she is, it would be best for BAI if they just let her go. She needs to prove herself as worthy of any partner. She needs to let go of her conspiracy theory soapbox and let her results do the talking. A prima donna attitude can work -but only if it is backed up by dedication and effort. Gutta got nuthin'. And as a result, as you (oldhand) say, Ashwini got nuthin' but trouble.
