Barrister Bahu 28 July 2022: Episode starts with Master ji lying to Anirudh. He says she is naughty, she doesn’t want to study, she ran away, I went after her and fell down, my glasses fell down, she took advantage of it, I can’t see without specs, she tied me up, she broke the vase also, I think she was prepared. Bondita signs no. Master ji asks who does this with teacher. Bondita says no, I came running to study. Anirudh says she has no reason to do this. Bondita says I didn’t do all this. Master ji says she doesn’t want to study, ask her, she told me that you want her to study and forced her. Anirudh asks did you say so. She says yes, I said I don’t want to study, I m learning on your saying, this vase broke by my hands, I didn’t tie him, he has beaten me with the stick, I didn’t tell him anything, he is lying.
Master ji says fine, I m lying, she isn’t educated, she doesn’t know learning, she has insulted knowledge, I can’t stay here where there is no respect of education. Binoy signs him. Bondita says stop master ji, I couldn’t write, even then I wrote, he had beaten me, my hand was paining, even then I tried to write. Master ji says enough, no need to lie more, I will not teach you if you don’t want to, I didn’t beat my students, I taught Saudamini at her home, ask her, did I ever beat him. Binoy says no need to ask anyone else, anyone here would have seen. He asks Batuk, Koyli and Bihari did they see the master beating Bondita. Bihari says I had seen Master ji hearing Bondita with peace and patience, she said she doesn’t want to study, I was happy that she is in right hands. Binoy looks at master ji. Master ji complains about her misbehavior. Trilochan shouts what are you saying about my Bahu, will I hear anything you say, she is a kid, she is young, she is naughty, how dare you call her bad, how dare you take her name. Binoy says you are getting angry for no reason, listen to master ji, he didn’t say anything wrong. Bondita says if he isn’t lying, then are the signs of the stick fake. She shows her hands.
She asks how did these marks come, tell me. Master ji worries. Anirudh looks at her and says Bondita…Trilochan says stop it Anirudh, how can a master beat our bahu, how does education help if it gets her insulted, its fine if she doesn’t want to study, does this marks suit her hands, look at her hands. Bihari says her hands turned red due to grinding the flour by Chakki. Trilochan stops him. Anirudh says Kaka, you can’t make me quiet, it means you have made her grind the flour, her hands turned red due to the household work, does this suit her. Bondita says but… Binoy says we can talk later, we shall send master ji, also end your wish to educate her. Anirudh thinks I m not able to understand, is Bondita saying right or master ji, I have to find the truth myself. He apologizes to master ji for Bondita’s mistake. He says forgive her and come tomorrow to teach her, give her another chance. He says I won’t let education get insulted, Bondita will study hard, I will be with you two. Binoy nods to Master ji.
Bondita says but… Anirudh says I will be with you, trust me. Master ji says I can’t step back from teaching students. He goes. Anirudh picks the books. Bondita says I didn’t do anything, he had beaten me. Anirudh asks will he beat you in front of me. She asks why don’t you believe me, I don’t want to study from him. He says this can’t work, you have to study, I will sit with you, master ji can’t even scold you, I will know the truth, education is imp, I won’t let you be an illiterate, I won’t let anyone come between you and studies. Bondita thinks I won’t study from the bad master ji.Trilochan asking Bondita to come for the household tasks. Somnath comes and says Saudamini has gone on the terrace. Everyone runs to stop her. Binoy smiles. Anirudh and Bondita ask her to stop. Somnath and Anirudh try to open the door. Bondita shouts stop, don’t go ahead. Bondita opens the window. She goes in. She rushes and stops Saudamini.
Saudamini acts. Bondita takes her to the room and makes her rest. Anirudh and Somnath come. Anirudh asks are you fine. Bondita says don’t worry, I have saved her from falling down, but why did you climb the terrace wall, we were shouting. Saudamini says I felt like I m in deep sleep. Bondita says I will take care of you, I will make everything fine.Saudamini’s dad comes and asks her to stay away. He scolds Bondita. He asks Anirudh to ask her to leave. Saudamini says let it go. He shouts and asks Anirudh to take his wife. Bondita says Saudamini always helped me, she needs me now, I can’t leave her alone, do you think I m so bad, Saudamini loves me a lot, she handles me, if I don’t care for her, will it be right, I will stay here. Anirudh asks her to just go home. Bondita comes home and sees the diyas lit. She cries and says aarti is done, I will get scolded today. Trilochan looks on. She apologizes. She says I know you will be much angry on me. He asks Maid to get that. Bondita asks what will he make me do now. Koyli gets something. Bondita gives her hand. She says don’t beat on my hands, I will grind flour again, I won’t eat sweets for a week, for four days. He stares at her. She says fine, I did a mistake and will get punished. She closes eyes. Trilochan applies the lep on her hands. She smiles.
He says its chandan lep, it will heal your wound, I m strict, but I m family, I care for you. She cries happily. She says you are really nice, this lep is relieving me a lot, really. Trilochan says you are also nice, bahu, show me your hands. He gets angry on Master. He says who teaches like this, will you study this way, you made good chunar for Maa and got bhog also, you tried to make Luchi well, I taught you, you learnt it. She asks did I become good housewife. He says a bit, but I m glad, can anyone do everything, men and women are made different.Bondita thinks. He says men do work outside the house better, women do work inside the house better. She asks who decides this, I have seen women working in field and men cooking in the marriage, how will we know what girls are capable of, girls don’t get chance to do work outside, if we give them a chance, we will know their capability. He says I know your capability to argue, leave all this, think if you became a good housewife, then you can cook food for yourself, Rasgulla, you can make it and eat it. She smiles. He says if you study, what will you make and eat, Master’s beating daily. She signs no. She says but Anirudh wants me to study, I want to show that I was saying the truth and master ji was lying.
He asks her to pray. He says I know you were saying the truth, but what shall I do, masters are such, they scare the students, if you don’t study, then master will go away, I can see that you can work hard and become a good housewife, can you study a little and become doctor or barister. She thinks. He says if you listen to me, then you will be praised for your household work, your mum will be proud, people will praise your mum.Bondita smiles. He asks will you make your mum proud. She nods. He says then its your decision, do you want the house keys or master’s stick.
