Anupama 7 September 2022: Kavya returns from office, sits on sofa resting her legs on table, and says it was a hectic day and she is tired. Baa taunts to keep her legs on her head. Kavya requests not to start now and tells Vanraj that she saw his missed calls. He says she forgot something. She says she paid his mobile bill. He says today was his interview, she didn’t even bother to call and find out how it went, it was terrible. She asks what is her mistake if he didn’t get a job. He says she should have at least called and found out. She says she was busy. He asks her to prepare tea for him. She says she is tired and he himself should prepare it for him. Baa offers her tea to him. Vanraj shouts at Kavya that he is having a headache.
She says even she is having a headache tolerating boss and Kinjal’s tantrums. He says even Anu returned from school tired, but prepared tea for Baa and Bapuji. She says she is not Anu and he married her as she is different from Anu. Bapuji asks them to discuss their personal problems in their room and not in front of everyone. Kavya says when they are discussing about Anu, they should in front of Anu. Vanraj warns her to dare not speak rudely with Bapuji. Kavya shouts she wants to hire a maid and cannot work both in office and house like Anu. Anu asks them to stop. Kavya says everyday is not the same, sometimes guests will come and sometimes there would be more work in office, so its not possible.
Vanraj says she forgot that Anu single handedly did all the work. Kavya says she had Jhilmil’s support. Baa says Jhilmil has gone to her village and not to jail and hence will return in a few days. Kavya says god knows when will she come, there lives will be easy if they hire a maid.Rakhi enters and says she is right, even she suggested Kinjal to hire a maid to stop issues in the family. Anu says Khilmil will return in a few days. Rakhi taunts there cannot be a better maid than Anu, she means nobody can cook or take care of house and family like Anu, but new maid will do something at least and they can remove her once Jhilmil returns.
Anu asks Kinjal and Kavya to take a decision, but she doesn’t need a maid and herself will serve Baa, Bapuji, and children. Rakhi asks what about when she will be in school or in dance class, she doesn’t want her daughter Kinjal to spend her whole life in kitchen. Anu says even she doesn’t want Kinjal to work in kitchen, but Kinjal and Toshu can take care of themselves and she will take care of Baa, Bapuji, Samar, and Pakhi. Kavya says its final that she will hire a maid, asks V if she is right. He asks if he has to hire a maid now. She says he cannot expect her to cook 3 times and work in office like Anu as its not possible for her; she taunts Anu that she should not overexert herself in this age and rest.
Kavya says she will pay maid’s salary if they can’t afford it, but will not let Kinjal exert herself. Kinjal asks her to stop and says let Kavya hire a maid, she and mummy will manage themselves. Kavya says they can work if they want to and suffer each day, but she will not and will hire a maid. Anu says getting work from a maid is difficult task, they need to explain work. Baa says they need to tolerate her tantrums and eat whatever raw food she prepares. Kavya says Baa is talking about Jhilmil, but she will hire a professional helper who will be well trained. Anu says even she needs to be explained about each family member’s needs and literally force them to work. Kavya says she knows to handle people as she manages many employees under him. Anu says good if she uses her skills even at home.
Kavya says she will as to be a good bahu, one needs to be smart and not a good cook. Rakhi leaves. Vanraj looks at Kavya.Baa angrily walks to backyard. Bapuji asks her to calm down and asks what happened. Kavya says till now she thought its her house and her opinion matters, but a maid is being hired without her opinion, maide ki katori came just 2 days ago and started taking her own decisions without seeking her opinion, Anu was the right bahu of this house, elders need respect and realization that they are still humans and not furniture, Kavya made her a furniture from MIL. Anu walks in and says her place is not only in the house but in the heart also and will always be, she knows Baa is hurt, but it is also Kavya’s house now and let her do whatever she wants to.
Baa says how can she let Kavya force a maid on her. Anu says she should think that her son will get a hot food on time and everyone has right to think about themselves. Baa says Kavya should have took her opinion. Anu says if she wants others to listen to her, even she has to listen to others; she says she doesn’t consider Kavya as her bahu, but wants her to obey like a bahu. Baa asks not to advocate Kavya. Anu says her son will get hot Gujrati dishes daily. Baa says she is right, Kavya will make Vanraj as Vanar raj/monkey else and says she will spy on maid sitting on her swinger.
Kavya hugs Vanraj from behind and asks if he is tired. Vanraj remembering interview says it was a bad day. Kavya says even Dholakia yelled at her, she wanted to throw resignation on his face, but controlled herself as getting a new job is difficult and Vanraj doesn’t have job on top of it; says she feels peace in his arms. He asks if she will not ask how did his interview go. She asks how was it. He says when he has to forcefully inform her, there is no use of it. She thinks she thought women are sensitive, but men are more sensitive than them.
Toshu tells Kinjal that Rakhi mummy is right that she should concentrate on her career instead of keeping herself busy in kitchen. She says she and mummy will manage till Jhilmil comes. He says she can spend more time with him if she hires a full-time maid. She asks if he thinks she doesn’t give him time and asks if mom said him something. He says mom is worried for her. She kisses him. He gets romantic and holds her. She says she needs to go to kitchen. She jokes that she accepts Samar baba’s gyaan.
Samar sees Anu decorrating her room wall with cards and says she is acting like typical middle class and should think big if she wants to become big. He asks why is she preparing toffees. She says its for her school kids as return gift and they are healthy home made toffees. He sings Teri Meri Aisi Judgayi Kahani and shows decorative lighs near her bed. She gets happy. He dances with her. Vanraj passes by and watches their enjoyment. Anu walks behind him and says everything will be alright; just like good days don’t stay long, bad says don’t stay long; she knows its difficult to say but follow, she just wants to say that when she can do it, he is much more talented than her and can do it, he shouldn’t lose his hope.
He smiles and thinks he will not lose hope and will have to bounce back. Kavya noticing him smiling thinks what did Anu say that he is smiling, she needs to keep a tab on her.Anupama with Kinjal serves breakfast to her children, Baa, and Bapuji. Bapuji scolds Samar and Toshu that they have gone on Vanraj and just eat instead of helping Anu and Kinjal. Kinjal says let it be as they will increase their work load instead. Samar asks if Bapujised used to help Baa in kitchen. Baa says he used to think peeling onion is help. Samar says he will will help by serving himself. Bapuji jokes again. Vanraj munching bread toast sadly watches his family enjoying sumptuous breakfast jovially.
Kavya asks him how is the breakfast. Baa says let him come out of the shock of her preparing breakfast early. Kavya’s hired maid Geeta walks in playing on mobile with her bag and asks if this is Kavya Shah’s house. Kavya says finally her new maid came. Baa says this is Vanraj and Anupama Shah’s house, didn’t she see the name plate outside. Geeta says she forget checking as she is busy updating her social media status. Pakhi asks if she is on social media. Geeta says she is a hifi maid. Kavya informs Baa that Geeta is their full-time maid who will stay with them 24 hours. Geeta asks can she discuss her terms and condition first. Kavya asks her terms and conditions.
Geeta says she was told there are only 2 people, but she can see even old people here. Baa scolds her that she can perform garbha on 6 songs continuously. Kavya says she needs to serve only 2 people and rest will serve themselves. Geeta says she needs her own room, will not share her charger with anyone, will not eat whatever they eat. Baa asks if they are hiring her or she is hiring them. Geeta says she doesn’t like interruption and after work she will watch her favorite TV serials. Baa says she will not let her touch her TV. Geeta says she will watch online as she is a hifi maid. Kavya accepts all her terms and conditions and asks her to start work from today.
Baa calls Geeta and touching her head says she takes oath on Geeta that if Kavya’s maid creates any issues, she will not spare her. Children laugh but stop seeing Vanraj. Baa comments that Kavya’s maid is weird like her. They discuss that their privacy is gone for a task with Geeta’s stay here 24 x 7. Kavya takes Geeta to kitchen and explains her work, then seeing Anu instructs her that she will work for only her and her husband and will not follow any other’s instructions. Geets nods okay. Kavya gives her apron and warns her not to clean her hands with her clothes. Geeta says even she needs to have same food, so she takes utmost care of hygiene. Kavya asks her to prepare breakfast and walks away. Anu asks Geeta to ask her if she needs her anything. Geeta arrogantly says she herself will find out. Anu offers her tea.
Geeta gets impressed and thinks she worked in so many houses, but nobody offered her tea in their own cup till now.Kavya informs Vanraj that she informed Geeta to prepare breakfast for them. Vanraj asks how can she keep a maid 24 x 7 here as everyone will feel uncomfortable, she would have asked him or Baa once before hiring a fullt-time maid. She says he should get habituated like he did 25 years ago when Anu came in his house. Vanraj says Anu was his wife. Kavya says she was working like a maid, he will get comfortable even with Geeta like Anu soon. Geeta serves them breakfast. Kavya asks Kinjal to go alone to office as she will have breakfast and then come. Geeta serves them lotus root sabji.
Vanraj starts coughing. Anu rushes to him with water and says he is allergic to lotus root. Kavya says she didn’t know. Anu says she ahd informed her during Rakhi’s party. Kavya reminisces the incident. Anu asks her to write it down if she can’t remember. Geeta thinks Anu knows more than his wife and asks Kavya why didn’t she inform her about it, she would have been blamed else. Kavya shouts shut up. Geeta says she doesn’t like attitude if its not her mistake and she will complain against her in union, then nobody will work for her. Kavya apologizes Geeta. Family laughs, and Baa mimics Geeta. Vanraj gets a interview call that they are waiting for him. He asks Kavya why didn’t she inform about this call.
She says she denied them as its a small start up company and she will manage until he gets a good job. She walks aside to pick her boss’ call.Anu walks to Kavya and says regarding Mr Shah’s job. Kavya says she shouldn’t show her right on her husband as she got his house and not her husband. Anu says she doesn’t want to show any right on her husband, but she cannot her children’s father’s and Baa/Bapuji’s son’s insult in front of them as her children will not respect their father following her, so she wants her to maintain a decorum at home. Kavya yells to stop lecturing her. Kavya says protecting her family’s interest is her duty and she is doing same. Vanraj walks to them ready for interview and tells Kavya that he is going for the interview in a small company as he thought its better to get a high designated job in a small company than getting a low designated job in a big company.
He looks at Anu, and she approves it with her eyes. He leaves. Kavya warns Anu to stay away from her husband. Anu says if she had to be near him, she wouldn’t have left him. Anu says she is boasting as she got a part of the house. Anu says she is bothered about house but not about family, she should think of winning family’s confidence.Vanraj visits his friend’s cafe and says even small companies need young blood. Friend says he went through same situation and hence he took loan and opened this cafe; says if he is so desperate, he can work in his new cafe near his house as a sales marketing head as its difficult to get a job at their age. He takes Vanraj to show him new cafe’s design. Nandini with Samar sitting in the same cafe worries for Vanraj.
Samar says he was so arrogant and insulted mummy when she got 5000 rs bonus, one has to pay for their sins in the same life. Nandini hopes Vanraj’s problems solve soon or else it will affect their whole family.Kavya orders Geeta to serve snacks to Vanraj when he returns home and gives her wifi pasword. Geeta asks what will she do till then. Kavya says she needs to serve only 2 of them and nobody else and should rest till then. Kinjal offers lift to Kavya in Toshu’s car. Kavya agrees. Baa recites a poem against Kavya. Geeta laughs. Kavya yells at her not to insult her in front of maid and walks away yelling. Children walk away.
Anu ready for her job requests Baa to stop calling Kavya as maide ki katori in front of children. Baa says if she doesn’t control Kavya, their hearts will break like their house.
