Curse of the sands 19 August 2021: Siya sees them mingling too well and thinks looks like they are dependent on each other. She walks to Mann’s room, but Mann arrogantly warns her to get out. She then walks to Ram and expresses her concern with teary eyes. Ram consoles her.
At night, Siya is asleep with Ram when she hears a sound outside. She opens door and sees Mann walking, so she follows him silently. Mann meets Gopika who asks if he is not getting sleep and takes him into her room. Siya rushes to Ram and waking him up says Mann is in Gopika’s room.
Ram asks her to relax. Siya says Gopika calls Mann as her son and is influencing Mann. She takes Ram to Gopika’s room. Gopika acts as asleep Siya pulls bedsheet and without looking at bed asks Ram if he saw Mann now. Ram asks where is Mann. Gopika wakes up and asks why she is doubting her so much. Ram scolds Siya and takes her away. Gopika sees Mann sitting on cupboard and remembers hearing Siya’s voice and hiding Mann on cupboard.
Siya takes Ram to Mann’s room and tells Ram a small child cannot sleep locking his room, she is sure something is wrong. Ram says Mann is disturbed after losing his friend Mansi and takes her away from there. Gopika hearing their conversation laughs and pampers Mann. Mann pushes her hand and angrily says rasgulla/Siya is very good. Gopika brainwashes him that Siya is evil and troubled her. He angrily calls rasgulla. Siya hears his voice and searches him, sees him on her bed, lifts bedsheet and is shocked to see blood on Mann’s mouth and evil eyes. Mann holds her throat and strangulates her.
Siya dreams that Mann as evil child strangulating her and worriedly walks up. Ram asks what happened to her. She says she feels Mann is in danger and thinks she has to protect her son. Gopika walks Mann and tries to pamper him.
Mann angrily pushes her and punishes her for trying to mislead her that rasgulla/Siya is bad and instead she is bad. Gopika thinks she will make sure Mann hates Siya soon.
Guruji tells Sumri that he needs to end evil child and Gopika somehow and needs Mallika’s help to enter back haveli, where is she. Mallika hypnotized by Mann stands still while Mann tries to harm her. Gopika asks not to trouble her, else she will die. Mann flies food plate in air. Siya enters and asks how was plate flying. Gopika says Mann threw it. Siya asks not to lie as she saw plate
flying. Gopika provokes Siya purposefully asking her not to worry about Mann and teach her wrong things. Siya warns her that she is Mann’s mother and not her and to stop acting as her mother or teach him wrong things. She scolds her to be guest her and not act oversmart. Ram enters and apologizing Gopika takes her away. Gopika thinks she will some more insult to turn Mann against Siya. She provokes Mann that rasgulla is really bad and if he saw how she scolded her.
Mann instead of getting angry reminisces rasgulla’s love for him and says rasgulla is good and he doesn’t know why she scolded Gopika. Gopika thinks she failed to provoke Mann against Siya, but will keep trying and make him against Siya.
Siya confronts Ram that Gopika is not good for Mann as she is teaching him wrong things. Ram says she cannot allege Gopika wrongly. Siya says she knows what is best for her son and will not let Gopika near Mann. Ram says he will support her every decision, but she will wait for 2 days till he returns from his traveling. Siya agrees. Gopika hears their conversation.
Sumri walks into Mallika’s room via window and asks why didn’t she go from here when Guruji asks her to go; Guruji has found a way to end Mann’s evil nature. Mallika speaking like villager trashes him to think bad against Mann and stabs him with knife. Gopika panics thinking she cannot go away from Mann and will apologize Siya instead. She then laughs and reveals she was just acting and thinks Siya cannot dare kick her out of this house; Siya is trapped in her plan and is doing whatever she is making her to do; her plan was to provoke Siya so much that she will kick her out of this house, then Mann has to choose between Siya and Gopika, she will see if Siya’s good upbringing will win or her evil birth.
Gopika thinks she will create so much hatred in Sautan/Siya’s life that she herself will kick her out, let us see if Siya’s good upbringing or her evil birth will win. She hears Mallika shouting and walks out to check. Mallika tries to kill Sumri for ill speaking about Mann. Jhumri on time stops her and rescues Sumri. Mallika thinks to make her plan successful, even pandit came. Ram leaves on business trip telling Siya that he will return soon and to take care of herself till he returns.
Jhumri takes Sumri aside and asks why did he go to Mallika’s room. Sumri says he came to meet her. Their romance starts and they stand looking at each other’s face. Gopika walks to them. Khumri gets nervous and sends Sumri away. Gopika says Mallika tried to kill Sumri so ruthlessly.
Jhumri requests not to inform anyone about her love affair with Sumri. Gopika asks her to go and meet Sumri. Jhumri says Bindu, Siya, Maya or anyone may catch them. Gopika assures no one will.
Gopika then walks to Mallika’s room to check on her and sees Mann sucking hypnotized Mallika’s blood.
She stops him and asks to have pomegranate juice instead, else if Siya sees him having blood, she will punish him. Mann asks why will Siya bother. Gopika provokes him against Siya, but he doesn’t deter. Sumri returns to Guruji and informs what Mallika did. Guruji says Mallika is under evil control and herself cannot do this.
Gopika returns to Mann who pleads to give him blood as he is very hungry. Gopika provokes him against Siya. Gopika seeing Siya walking in slaps Mann. Siya angrily shouts how dare she is to slap Mann. Gopika says Mann is misbehaving and insisting her for more food, he is troubling her a lot; Siya should prepare food for him instead of running behind kanhaji. Siya drags Gopika out and pushes her out of house.
