Anupama 2 January 2023: Anuj drops Anupama outside Shah house and leaves. Anu thinks why only woman should always divide herself between parents, husband, in-laws, children and can’t get everything at once. She remembers Vanraj and Baa’s allegations on her, she proposing Anuj, Kinjal informing about her pregnancy, and Vanraj ordering her to stay at Shah house till Kinjal’s delivery and thinks whether a woman bends or not, a mother can fight with the whole world and even herself. She prays Kanhaji to take care and walks into Shah house thinking its only a matter of few days. She touches Bapuji’s feet and wishes him happy Mahashivratri. Bapuji wishes her same and says she flew out of the cage with great difficulty and has to return back into it. She says she is free to walk out whoever she wants to this time. Bapuji if Kinjal had not needed her, he wouldn’t have let her stay here. Anu says a person is mostly caged by the mind and not by the body.Samar says people will taunt that Anupama’s story is regressive and back where it started. Anu says it’s a same place with a new story and new Anupama; she left from here with tears but returned with price; people will taunt, but she is a mother and will do whatever she has to do for her children. Bapuji says after Kinjal gets well, he will tell everyone what she wanted to tell during her birthday celebration; fathers just don’t read newspapers, they read daughter’s mind; he will announce her wedding and will perform her kanyadaan; Kanhaji sent her back so that he can farewell her doli/palanquin from here. Anu feels shy. Bapuji blesses her. He prays god to give him courage to get his daughter’s happiness, he trusts god, but a father is afraid that something wrong may happen.
Anuj video calls Anu. Anu says he just left her here and already is missing her. He recites shayari for her and talks about marriage. She feels nervous and asks after marriage what will he do if she visits her maika. He says he would visit there as a damaad and will not let his wife go away from him even for a second. Vanraj barges in and wishes happy Shivrati to Anuj. Anuj replies him same. Vanraj says his shivratri is happy, but unfortunately their shivrati is sad as they separated on Mahadev and Parvati’s union day. Anu tells Anuj if Vanraj is feeling so bad, why don’t he come here with his bags. Anuj says its a brilliant idea, he can see anything but not Vanraj’s pain and will come there right now. Vanraj warns him not to come there. Anuj warns him to stop troubling Anu then as he will not tolerate that. Anu disconnects call and warns Vanraj to stop his nonsense as she is here only for Kinjal and will not tolerate his misbehaviors.Vanraj gets ready for pooja. Toshu informs him that contract results will be out today and hopes they win the contract. Family joins them for pooja. Kinjal feels guilty that she has to stay here for her sake. Anu comforts her. Vanraj performs Shiv pooja and performs aarti with Kavya followed by Toshu Kinjal, Baa Bapuji, and others.
When Anu performs aarti, Anuj joins her leaving Vanraj frowning and Anu happy. Anu says starting pooja is a virtuous deed, but end pooja is a good luck. Jealous Vanraj says its his pooja. Anuj says its Bholenath’s pooja and anyone can attend it. Vanraj says if its in temple and not at someone’s house and strangers are kicked out. Anuj says what if he is a guest as Bapuji invited him. Vanraj and Baa angrily look at Bapuji.Anuj and Vanraj get a call at a same time. Anuj rejoices and Vanraj stands shocked. Anuj informs that he got a business contract. Vanraj says he snatched it from him. Toshu says this is the same contract which they were working hard on. Anuj says he didn’t know they were also bidding on it, its a business, and wishes them better luck next time. Vanraj alleges that he used wrong means to get that contract. Anuj says he doesn’t have money but has truth, courage, experience, discipline, gratitude, friends, brain, heart. Vanraj continues alleging and asks why didn’t his company get that contract. Anuj says its Mukku’s company.
Vanraj asks Anuj if he didn’t do any conspiracy, how did he get the contract and not Malvika’s company. Anuj says people look at his track record and trust and give contract. Vanraj says he is giving pravachan like his girlfriend with just one contract. Anuj says if one truly loves each other, their qualities exchange; he could get the contract because of Anu’s encouragement. Vanraj says he is not habituated to lose. Anuj says he should accept his defeat gracefully like him. Vanraj says he accepts defeat as he is habituated to it. Anuj sasys its not a habit but sharafat/nobility. Vanraj says he is naming fear as nobility which can be misused. Anuj says Vanraj can try if he can and he lacks nobility. Anuj stops them and says Anuj didn’t know that Vanraj is bidding that contract. Vanraj asks what would he have done then. Anuj says he would have worked hard twice to get that contract. Vanraj shouts Anuj’s name. Anuj shouts back Vanraj.Bapuji asks Vanraj to calm down. Baa says Anuj is at fault. Anu says its not Anuj’s mistake. Baa says she has invited enemies home. Anu asks shall she leave. Kavya says she should. Baa asks who will take care of Kinjal if Anu leaves. Mamaji taunts didi learnt to bent. Vanraj says he didn’t though. Bapuji asks why Vanraj has problem with Anuj. Anuj says someone/Anu liked him, which Vanraj couldn’t digest. Baa asks Anu and Anuj to back off if Vanraj is not backing off. Anu asks why should they back off always when they know that Vanraj is always wrong. Vanraj shouts to stop their drama and blames them for spoiling their Mahashivratri pooja and coming to his house just before result is announced. Anu warns him to stop his blame game as he cannot fly high anymore as Anuj has taken over him.
Baa asks them to go home and party after spoiling her son’s festival day. Anu asks what about Vanraj ruining her life. Baa says she is standing here happily. Anu asks if she should cry, she will not. Baa says she still laughs and giggles with her son. Anu says she will to prove that she is still a mother and has many other relationships left and hasn’t broken down after his verbal and physical attacks. Baa says what about her and Anuj hurting Vanraj. Anu says he himself is responsible for that and if he doesn’t accept his mistake and change himself, he will be in trouble again. She then prays Mahadev with Anuj. Baa asks them to leave now. Anuj asks Anu to accept elder’s anger as prasad and leaves from there greeting everyone.Paritosh/Toshu starts his drama next and blames Anu for ruing his and Vanraj’s dreams. Samar asks what is mummy’s mistake if they are not competent. Toshu says mummy’s mistake is she didn’t think of her son’s life and career and thought of Anuj instead. Samar says he is ungrateful to mummy’s favors. Toshu says mummy just followed her duty as a mother. Samar says he should understand his duty also instead of insulting mummy very often and stop blaming his fate instead of hard work. Toshu says when he was born, he had got promotion to papa, but his baby even before being born got a disaster in his/her father’s life. Everyone are shocked to hear that. Samar says he ruined his own life and sought job from his MIL and father instead of finding a job himself. Toshu continues blaming his baby and calling it as inauspicious and says he wanted to focus on his career but now has to spend money on his baby’s diaper and food when he doesn’t have any money in his account. Vanraj says they have money. Toshu continues.
Vanraj slaps him and warns to stop. Toshu asks him not to interfere as its his baby. Vanraj says he is his father and will not spare him if something happens to his grandson. Samar asks what is wrong with him, he will take care of baby and will not let anything happen to him/her or else he is not his mummy’s son. Anu warns Toshu to dare not talk nonsense again and make sure Kinjal is not around next time as baby can hear them even in a mother’s womb. She says she and Kinjal will take care of the baby and not say anything which will make him fall in his baby’s eyes. Toshu says its easy to speak, there won’t be anyone for this baby when Kinjal goes to work. Anu says she is still alive and will take care of grandchildren; he is humiliating every father, especially his father who cannot hear anything against his children. Toshu says as usual she is great and he is bad, she is right and he is wrong and walks away from there.Baa blames Anu and Anuj again for all the issues. Anu says Anuj saved this house and stopped them for getting homeless, he saved Samar’s life, and gave job to her son and DIL. Bapuji says Baa always supports Toshu and Vanraj and hides their mistakes. Baa says Toshu was angry and they shouldn’t feel bad when someone is angry. Anu says if she should slap Toshu as she is also angry and says they should stop considering boys as right always and when a woman an control her anger, why not a man; Toshu should learn from his father’s slap or else he will get his mother’s slap next. She walks away from there and hears Vanraj consoling Kinjal and apologizing her for Toshu’s misbehavior.
