She says she spoke a lot without speaking, every year he celebrates birthday with family and leaves her alone. He says he will never leave her alone as he loves her. She says she is just his love and not priority. He says if she was not his priority, if he was staying with her leaving his family; he broke up with Anupama and not family and family still has right on him. She asks what about her right. Kinjal informs Baa that she has a business meeting at a resort and whole family has to accompany her. Baa says resort doesn’t suit their family. Kinjal says its necessary. Anu asks when they have to go to resort. Kinjal says tomorrow. Baa says not tomorrow as its sasur Vanraj’s birthday tomorrow and she has arranged pooja, so Toshu and Kinjal has to sit in pooja. Kinjal asks why she arranged pooja at our home. Baa says when they are celebrating birthday here, will she keep pooja in Japan.
Anu says like every year, they will celebrate Vanraj’s birthday here. Kinjal asks if she is okay with it. Anu says yes as she doesn’t have a right to speak between mother and son. Kavya continues her emotional blackmail and tells Vanraj that he is concerned about his children and family always, he should pay attention towards her also and she is celebrating birthday for his happiness; he doesn’t send Pakhi home, so he denies her permission and always ignores her. Vanraj consoles her. Pakhi watches that and thinks if papa will send her home for Bestie, neithr of her parents love her. Kavya pleads Vanraj to give her one day and celebrate birthday with his family next day.Baa insists Kinjal to take leave tomorrow to sit in pooja. Kinjal says she cannot. Anu explains that job is a responsibility and Kinjal cannot ignore it. Baa asks then why did Toshu take a leave from job tomorrow. Kinjal says Toshu works in her mom’s coaching instiute and is literally its damad/SIL, so he can take leave anytime. Toshu enters and asks till when he will be taunted for his job. Kinjal says she is not taunting him. He asks why don’t she try to take a leave for papa’s birthday. Kinjal says she is a project head and its important for her to go.
Baa continues to insist. Kinjal says she can’t and will call papa and wish tomorrow, thats it. She walks away. Baa says if Kinju baby is going to resort, even maide ki katori Kavya will go, so her son will be alone. Anu thinks if Kavya is going, even Vanraj may go.Kinju packs her clothes. Toshu hugs her and says he knows she is serious regarding job and doesn’t mix personal and professional life, but once in a blue moon she should take a leave for him, they will perform pooja in the morning and will go to take gift for papa after that and celebrate birthday with whole family, he won’t feel good without her, they fought a lot and let us start afresh. Kinjal says even she is tired of these fights. He says then she should agree. She asks what did he gift mummy, he even forgot her birthday. He says there is no connection between these 2 issues. She says she is seeing is so excited regarding papa’s birthday, its good that he loves his papa as even she does, but she doesn’t differentiate between her parents; they ignore one person’s sacrifice in this house and praise other, she doesn’t like seeing this double standard and doesn’t feel like taking a leave.
He asks that means she will not take a leave then. She says she is not differentiating between mummy and papa, but can see how family ignores mummy and don’t even remember her birthday while mummy thinks of everyone, so she will think of mummy; sorry she cannot take a leave, but will accompany him to buy gift if he wants. He thinks mummy made Kinjal like her.Samar video calls Anu and says he misses her and its the first time he has gone away from her. She cries saying even she is missing him and asks when will he return. He says 7-8 days. She asks 7 or 8 days as it makes a difference and she can cry 1 day less. She then asks how is Mumbai, if he saw something. Everything is good, but he doesn’t have her there. She cries again. He says mummy’s eyes means tear tanks; he says he heard Mr. Shah is celebrating his birthday at home, if he was there, he would have taken her out somewhere and not let her face him. His friend calls him for dinner and he leaves. Anu reminisces wishing Vanraj happy birthay at 12 exactly while he is asleep and he in sleep murmurs that Kavya presentation is tomorrow.

Kinjal says she feels sorry for her if she thinks so, everyone in this house loves her and don’t want to hurt her, but if she doesn’t tell truth, it won’t be good for her. Kavya asks what truth. Kinjal says she herself is responsible for all her problems, she is not happy even after doing whatever she likes because she thinks only of herself.Anu walks out. Vanraj asks if Pakhi is fine. Anu says she spoke to him and its better if he also speaks to her.
