Gangaa 16 October 2020: Ganga drops the tray and falls on the floor. Sagar rushes to her side. He pushes the puja thaal that was in Janvi’s father’s hand away while running up to her. Everyone gathers around Ganga. She is unconscious.
Sagar keeps trying to wake her up but in vain. Janvi’s parents feel uncomfortable seeing Sagar all worried for Ganga. He picks up Ganga in his arms and takes her to Amma ji’s room. Everyone follows them. Janvi tells her parents that she will just see what happened to Ganga. They look worried. Prabha remarks that a small spark can ignite a big fire. We only have to blow on it.
Sagar keeps patting at Ganga’s face. I don’t know what happened to her. Amma ji sits down to check. Her nails have turned blue. Sagar points out at the same to his Dadi. Madhvi wonders if some poisonous insect bit her. Amma ji notices the mark on Ganga’s feet. She got bit by a scorpion. Maharaj ji tells them about Ganga getting bit by an insect in the kitchen. Pulkit cannot reach the doc. Niru suggests taking Ganga to another doc but Amma ji stops them. I know how to get the poison out. She tells Maharaj ji to heat the tong and bring it. Sagar tells her not to try the homely ideas on Ganga. We cannot take risk. If anything happens to her then will your Vaid ji bring my Ganga back?
Janvi looks at him in shock. Pulkit manages to get in touch with a doc and updates him on Ganga’s condition. The doc is on his way. Amma ji asks everyone to go out. Sagar does not want to go but Pulkit takes him outside. Only Supriya, Madhvi and Amma ji stay inside. Supriya and Madhvi hold Ganga’s feet as Amma ji touches the heated tong on her wound. Sagar is pained seeing Ganga reacting to the heated tong. He hits his hand hard on the wall. Janvi notices him getting hurt in the process. I will put ointment. He leaves from there feeling helpless (not with Janvi). Prabha decides to make use of this opportunity.
Doc gives injection to Ganga. You will feel drowsy because of the injection and medicine. Don’t be worried. He gives her an ointment too. He leaves. Maharaj ji sits down to tie the bandage on Ganga’s feet. She tells him against it. you are elder to me. I wont like it. He insists but Sagar offers to do it. Maharaj ji leaves. Sagar is about to put ointment when she tells him not to do so. I will do it. He tells her to be quiet. You are stubborn in everything. He applies the ointment on her wound. She feels pain so he blows on it. They book look at each other. The theme song plays in background. He puts the bandage next.
Everyone talks of the scorpion biting Ganga. Niru tells Janvi’s parents that she is Sagar’s childhood friend. They don’t mind it. you get to know of people in times of problem only. He takes so much care of his friend so he will obviously keep his wife happy. She is lucky to have Sagar. Niru calls them lucky too. We got a DIL like Janvi. Madhvi shares that doc has checked Ganga. she will be fine by morning.
Sagar tells Ganga to sleep. I will sit by your side. she tells him to be with Janvi’s parents. He does not want to hear it from her what he should be doing. She folds her hands to request him. He angrily leaves from there. Ganga is in tears. Outside, Sagar thinks of Ganga’s request. He hits his hand angrily on the wall again. Prabha smiles seeing him. What happened? Is everything fine? He heads upstairs without saying anything. Prabha smirks. She goes inside the room to talk to Ganga. The fire is equally lit on both the sides. There will be a storm in the house when Sagar announces his love openly for Ganga. the happiness of this house will end just like they ended the happiness of my house.
Janvi seeks the blessings of elders. Madhvi says the house will be empty without her. Janvi’s parents say it is only a matter of few days. she will be here after the wedding. Amma ji says it is good or people will talk about it. Prabha seconds her. She thinks Sagar and Ganga’s love will blossom only when Janvi will leave. Niru tells Sagar about Janvi leaving with her parents. Niru, Madhvi and Amma ji are also leaving for some place. Ganga stumbles in her step. Something falls. Sagar immediately rushes to her side. why did you come out? Doc asked you to rest.
She says I wanted water. He replies that she could have asked someone to bring it. He offers to stay with her at home. You all can drop off Janvi and her parents at the airport. Janvi looks uncomfortable. Madhvi asks Sagar not to do this. You cannot leave your would be in-laws like this. Ganga tells Sagar to go. Maharaj ji is at home. He tells her to be quiet. I did not ask you what I should be doing. Prabha offers to take care of Ganga. don’t worry about her. Niru also asks Sagar to come. He goes with them.
Prabha asks Maharaj ji to bring water. Ganga is sleepy. Prabha makes her take the medicine. She assures Maharaj ji she will manage things here. Ganga lies down to sleep. Prabha looks at her. Sleep peacefully princess! Your prince will come when you will be asleep and wake you up with love. Sleep well!
Prabha sends Maharaj ji to market for some work. He is reluctant but she says Ganga slept. She wont wake for 2-3 hours. Market isn’t far. He leaves. He asks her to watch the coal (which he left on gas).
Prabha brings the hot coals in Ganga’s room. She closes all the windows and door of the room next. I am so smart. This smoke will set fire now. She leaves.
Janvi pulls Sagar aside. I don’t want to leave you. I will miss you. But I am happy that I will be back as your wfe soon. His phone rings. He is shocked. In Ganga’s room? Prabha lies that there is fire in Ganga’s room. She is inside. She isn’t opening the door. I am scared. He leaves for home. Janvi wants to go with him but he does not even listen to her. Madhvi asks her where Sagar went. Janvi replies that Ganga called him to her on some pretext. Are you sure you will handle everything? I mean, Sagar and Ganga?
Sagar drives in full speed. On the other hand, Prabha peeks inside Ganga’s room. Maharaj ji comes home. Prabha shouts his name. Ganga can hear her voice but she is too drowsy. Maharaj ji knocks at the door. Prabha tells him to break open the door. Sagar enters just then. Prabha hears him. she shouts Ganga. He rushes to her room. Prabha asks Sagar what if Ganga dies. He says nothing like that will happen. He tries to open the door but in vain. Both Maharaj ji and Prabha go to bring something to break open the door. Sagar asks Ganga to get up. She coughs and tries getting up. He is panicking with every passing second. Open the door. The door is finally opened by him. He picks her up in his arms and brings her outside. She is coughing badly. He asks her if she is fine. She nods.
He asks her what happened. Do you know what happened to me? For a second I felt you will leave me for forever. They share a hug. Why couldn’t you understand what was happening inside? Why weren’t you opening the door? How can you be so careless? How would I live if anything had happened to you? She says Sagar. He holds her face. Ganga I love you! She is stunned. I love you. I cannot lose you at any cost. I wont be able to live without you. If anything had happened to you then your Sagar would have died without you! You were right Ganga. I understand everything slow. I was mad. I called our relation childhood friendship but I have realised it today. it isn’t friendship but love. I realised it today why I worry so much for you. Why I feel pain when you are in pain! Why I am restless! I got all my answers. This is love. I love you Ganga! I really do! Tears fill her eyes. They hug again. She realises something and pushes him. This cannot be! He is taken aback. I really love you. She tells him not to say anything. This cannot be! He asks her why. Ganga runs upstairs while he keeps calling out after her to stop. He stands there shocked.
Ganga rushes upstairs. She thinks of Sagar’s words. He asks her why she came here. Who are you running away from? Now? I ran from this truth till date. I acted all blind to my feelings. Today, when I got strong enough to accept it; when I figured out you are the one I have been looking for, you are running away? Don’t do this. You cannot run away like this! She says you find all this a joke. You call me youor friend some times and lover on the other. You are thinking of your feelings today also. You did not think of my feelings ever. He knows he has hurt her a lot.
Everything will be fine now. She denies. It is too late. They hear a car horn. She says everyone has come. I have to go. Prabha smiles from a distance. She hides so they cannot see her. Ganga tells Sagar not to say it again for the betterment of this family and himself. It is good for you to stay away from me. She heads downstairs. Prabha thinks that the time for this family to cry has come! Amma ji was right. This girl will bring their downfall one day. That day isn’t far.
Amma ji and Madhvi question Maharaj ji on what happened at home. Niru dismisses it. It is good that nothing happened. Ganga joins them. Pulkit asks her what happened. She is all quiet. Ganga says nothing and leaves from there. She comes in the kitchen and wipes her tears. Supriya and Pulkit come there. What happened? Ganga still does not say anything. She tries to busy herself with something or the other. She keeps wiping her tears all along.
Sagar thinks of Ganga’s love confession; of him telling her that he likes Janvi; of whatever happened after that between them and of what happened just now.
Yash is shocked to know Sagar loves Ganga. Your doubt was right. She says I said it in childhood only. Ratan is all quiet. She asks him if he is melting towards his sister again. You gave up again, right? Ratan replies that he can never forget what they did with him, his family, especially Madhvi. They put my son behind bars for a stranger girl! They are very proud of their family name. I wont sit peacefully till I destroy them. He changes the sim card of his phone. We have made arrangements to hurt one son of the family. How can I spare someone else? Ratan calls Pulkit. He has covered his phone with a kerchief and talks about financing his business. He asks for 1.5 lacs from him first. Pulkit needs a week’s time but Ratan advises him to arrange it asap. He shares a fake name – Rajiv Bhardwaj. Pulkit agrees to call him back.
Pulkit thinks of the deal. It is good but what good is it for me. I am good for nothing. I cannot spend money on myself! Supriya hears him. She gives him her jewellery. They will cost more than 1.5 lacs. He does not want to sell them for his business. She says he can get her many more later when his business is set. This isn’t greater than your happiness. He is reluctant but she makes him take it. He thanks her. You don’t know what you did for me today. Thank you so much. She says I dint do it for you. I did it for us. It is an amazing deal. Just go for it. He smiles. I feel as if I got some jackpot. They both smile.
Ratan knows that this deal is very tempting for Pulkit. He will get money from anywhere. Poor guy, he doesn’t know how much it will cost him!
Ganga has still kept the ashes of the things she burnt some time ago (of Sagar and her). Amma ji wakes up because of the mosquitoes. She also asks Ganga to close the door. She gets up to do so when she notices Sagar outside. He covers her mouth. Amma ji turns around so she immediately lies down. Sagar is lying next to him only. She tells him to go but he insists upon talking to her right away. She again pretends to lie down as Amma ji turns in her sleep. Ganga again asks Sagar to leave but in vain. They both go outside together.
Sagar brings Ganga upstairs. She says what madness is this. why did you bring me here forcibly? I said I don’t want to talk to you. He shushes her by keeping a finger on her lips. He agrees that he is an idiot. I understood things late but I finally did. She wants to go but he asks her if she remembers what happened 10 years ago. Flashback is shown. Sagar had made her wear one anklet. He had kept the other one with him. Flashback ends. You broke all the ties and gave it back to me when I came back. He shows it to her. She recalls doing so. Either Sagar will make me wear the pair in both my feet or I will never wear it. He says you think I forgot everything. No, I kept every memory related to you with me, including this anklet. I was waiting to make you wear it.
I took time in understanding the real meaning of our relation. But I did understand. It isn’t friendship but love! He makes her sit down and then ties an anklet in her each foot. Tears roll down her cheeks. She stands up. She removes the anklet and hands it back to him. Relations, memories, you kept them all safely to come to me when you will realise it. Ask me what it is to stay away from you. I have learnt to bear this pain by staying away from you and even after your return! 10 years, 112 days, 34 hours and 25 seconds – I have only loved you!
