Curse of the sand 23 Sept 2021: Ananya moves ahead to kiss on Shiv’s cheek and forehead, who was startled at her act. Amar irked. Ananya walks out of the room, wishing Amar Good night as well.
Later at night, Shiv comes upstairs to find Ananya standing there, lost in a deep thought. He comes to speak to her but Ananya’s hand falls over the cactus. Shiv spots the blood on her hand and his eyes flash black at once. He pushes her hand over the cactus plant, laughing in joy over her scream and pain. His nails were elongated, tooth grown larger. Ananya falls on the floor, fainted. Shiv enjoys drinking her blood. With a jerk, Shiv backs up and realizes it was only a day dream.
Amar comes to Shiv and says Ananya is a good girl, why he isn’t ready to marry her. Shiv says he is aware of her love for him, he would prefer dying than to hurt her.
He doesn’t want their love defeated in hands of fate. He is a son of a witch and a human, he can suppress his devilish powers but can never get rid of them completely. Amar was happy about this, then comes to hug Shiv. He thinks when hero is backing up, villain can easily take the heroine.Ananya was asleep when something hits her head from the window. She was upset and doesn’t move from her place. She was hit again, looks towards the window but no one was there.
She sits up wondering what if Shiv has left because of her attitude. She goes out of the room, happily looking around for Shiv and spots a shadow on the floor. She follows the shadow leading her into the store room. She comes to hug him from behind and says she knew he would agree to marry her. it was Amar, not Shiv. Ananya soon realizes this and backs up. Amar turns to face Ananya.Ananya hugging Amar, thinking of him as Shiv. She says she knew he would agree to marry her. Amar replies he never said a no.
Ananya backs up asking what kind of joke this is. Amar says why Ananya is in such a hurry to marry, she must find a girl for him so that he doesn’t do such cheap jokes with his sister in law at midnight. Amar says he is really considering to marry now. Ananya inquires about the qualities he wish for in the girl. Amar says she must be a good cook, prepare best sweets in the world and pretty. He offers to show her a reflection of his liking, turns the lights on and unveils a mirror, cleaning the dirt off. He points towards Ananya and demands a girl exact carbon copy of Ananya.
But Ananya is a single piece in the world, why she doesn’t marry him. Ananya turns to face Amar and slaps him hard on face. She forbids him to stay in his limits and not to do such cheap jokes with her again. Sunanda comes to Amar. Amar says Ananya didn’t like his expression right now, but will soon realize her love. Sunanda asks if this is how much he loves her. Amar says she is his life, and he can remove any hurdle from his way, be it Shiv. Sunanda was taken aback, and with tears in her ears she complains that he forgot about his mother, and only cares for his love. Amar hugs Sunanda and says he recognizes her worth, she is really important for him.
Sunanda was still crying and sends Amar to sleep. Afterwards, Sunanda smirks he is no one to kill Shiv, Shiv will instead kill him. This time, she will work for his powers and he will inconsiderately kill him and Ananya this time.It was late at night. Someone opens the room door and enters Ananya’s room. It was Amar who stuffs Ananya’s mouth so she can’t make a noise and pulls her outside. Ananya wakes up from the nightmare, and terrified she decides to tell everything to Shiv.
The next morning, Amma ji finds Shiv looking for a matchstick in the temple corner. She tells him it’s under the stairs. Shiv smiles. Sunanda was preparing breakfast for everyone. Rekha comments it seems she gets all the oil for free. Kamal silently eats and thinks he wish Sunanda had given equal amount of love to his family as well.Ananya joins Shiv in the temple corner. She thinks of all his care and love for Amar, then prays for strength from God so that she can tell Shiv the reality.
Sunanda brings the breakfast for Amar, which she had prepared in heavy oil. Amar tells Sunanda he is sleepless these nights because of Ananya. Sunanda was upset again. Amar kiss Sunanda’s hand, and asks her their next prey after Devki.Shiv laughs in his room. He asks Ananya why Amar will have a problem with their marriage, he is his younger brother. Ananya says she thought about it a lot. Shiv says Amar came to him yesterday and asked why he wasn’t marrying Ananya. He goes to give Prasad to Amar. Ananya felt helpless as Shiv had been blinded by the love of his brother.
Sunanda tells Amar they must remove the Rudraksh from Shiv’s neck. Later, they must ignite the devil inside Shiv. Shiv walks to Amar’s room and was shocked to see Sunanda stand there. Sunanda asks Amar to ask for anything else in breakfast if needed. Shiv asks Sunanda what she is doing here. Sunanda replies she came with Amar’s breakfast. She recalls spotting Shiv in the mirror opposite to the door. She thinks she was saved today, but must be cautious for next time. Shiv removes the thaal and tells Amar not to eat from this thaal. Amar tells Shiv to relax, he hasn’t eaten nor did Sunanda asked him to eat. Ananya comes and finds Shiv and Amar in a hug.
Ananya comes to Sunanda’s room. She was upset and says Shiv isn’t ready to hear anything against his brother. Sunanda bolts the door, then tells Ananya she is innocent. She says a woman must know the right time and right way to speak to a man. She must bring Shiv closer, seduce him in the music of her jewels and create an atmosphere that he can’t see anything but her. Ananya asks how she will do all this. Sunanda whispers in her ears. Ananya was happy, and cheerfully leaves the room. Amar rushes into the room and questions how can Sunanda do so, he loves Ananya and no one can stop him from getting her.
Sunanda tries to stop Amar who was furious and breaks the mirror in the room through his fist punch. Amar says he loves Ananya dearly, and still Sunanda sent her to Shiv; Ananya belongs to him only and no one will be able to stop him. After Amar had left the room, Sunanda smiles repeating ‘Mohini ki Maya… Koi Nahi Bach Paya’. Late at night, Sunanda was preparing her tantric potion.
Mishra watched through the window. Kamal returns home. Sunanda prepares the hot hypnotic potion and thinks she must give this to Kamal at any cost. She comes to the room, wipes Kamal’s sweat from his forehead and requests him to wear the drink she prepared for him. Mishra ji who stood behind the door deliberately pushes the door, and the glass slips off Kamal’s hand. Sunanda was irked. Mishra ji apologizes and leaves.
Sunanda thinks she can’t do anything right now, she needs to prepare for the night as it’s the first step of her destination. Tomorrow, she will work on Kamal’s medicine once again.
Late at night, Sunanda had set up the tantric corner. She laughs that its Puranmasi night. Shiv had just returned home. He receives a call from Ananya who called him for help to the forest. Shiv hurries to the forest. Sunanda says today, Shiv will turn into evil once again. And in his furor, he would either kill his love, or his brother. Shiv follows Ananya’s voice for help and runs there. He reaches a spot where Ananya had set up a romantic platform for them. Shiv complains he was tensed because of this. Ananya encircles his neck and apologizes. She didn’t intend to put him in trouble, but since Amar came home Shiv doesn’t give time to her. She wanted to take him at a far off place and spend some lone time with him.
Shiv apologizes, as she was extremely excited about Amar. She replies one must never apologize for spending time with family. She leads Shiv to the table where dinner had been served. She tries to attract Shiv, who finally carries her in his arms to a swing. They spend some cozy moments inside the tent camp.
Mohini held two puppets, rubbing red sindoor over them. She places them under direct moonlight, and says death is written for any one of them under this moonlight. The devil will kill at least one of them.
Shiv felt cold in the camping tent. Ananya covers them under a single shawl, placing her head over his shoulder.
Amar watches this from behind the tent. He recalls Sunanda had taken him back into her room. Sunanda told Amar that its full moon night, Shiv will be overcome by his devilish powers. He will attack Ananya and Amar can save Ananya. He must rest assure the Rudraksh isn’t there in Shiv’s neck. Amar recollects obtaining the Rudraksh by placing a hurdle in Shiv’s way over him he slipped. He takes a photo of the Rudraksh and sends the snap to Mohini.
Shiv spots the full moon. His smile vanishes at once. He tells Ananya its full moon night. Ananya tells Shiv they need to overcome their fears now. He must get rid of this idea that he can hurt her. She wants to hold his hand for lifetime and marry him. Shiv thinks about all his dreams. He was at once uncomfortable and denies marrying her. Ananya wasn’t ready to hear a no.
They will marry each other as soon as Dai Maa is here. Shiv walks ahead, annoyed. Ananya says she loves Shiv, doesn’t he love her and wish for her companionship. She grabs his collar but he gets rid of the grip and moves ahead. Ananya questions why Shiv is falling so weak. Their companionship is difficult, their relation isn’t normal; but it’s not impossible. Shiv replies he is afraid of losing her, or hurting her. The thought takes away his life that… Ananya wasn’t ready to understand. Whether their relationship is fated for marriage, or their ways are apart from right away. Shiv minds Ananya he can’t push her into death well deliberately. Ananya turns to see the lit fire. She thinks Shiv believes he will take her life. Today, she must prove to him that her death can reach her from other path too.
