Gangaa update 24 January 2020: Shiv places a rod on the thief’s shoulder and beat them, the three attack at Shiv together. Shiv fights well but they beat the back of his head with a rod. Radhika and Ganga move forward with huge wooden sticks, Shiv cheers heading the siren of police van. The inspector takes Shiv and family along to be dropped home. Shiv comes to hug Radhika.
On their way back, Ganga sat as Radhika slept on her shoulder. Shiv asks Ganga why she left where he told her to stay. He had spotted the goons already, he went to inform the police and found Ganga there. He complains she never listens to him.
Ganga stares, then says someone promised to never scold again. She is upset she filled a pot of water for those Pakhandi’s, she must have bathed herself over the well. Both smile.
Pratab speaks on phone that Radhika was found. He was curt at Ganga, Savitri says if they needed will kill Ganga as well. She has spoilt their plan for once; and was ready to teach her a lesson tomorrow. They notices someone’s presence and goes out alert, a vase lay there broken. Savitri says they must focus on tomorrow’s cooking task for Ganga now.
The next morning, Shiv finds Ganga’s bed empty and looks around for her. She had been pouring tea for Shiv. Shiv says he likes to do his chores, she doesn’t need that. Her foot is already hurt. Ganga says she wanted to have tea, and made for him too as he is used to have tea. Even Shiv is hurt and needs rest. Shiv says he is used to it. Ganga says everyone compliments him to be nice, she is only attempting to be as nice as him. Shiv says he would ask Savitri not to make Ganga do any hard work today, she might take rest. Shiv visibly likes the tea.
Kushaal was untying the second knot from the tree. He says Ganga has made them really proud. Pratab says if this goes on, Ganga would soon rule the house. Savitri comes to tell her about the third challenge; Ganga would prepare the whole food for today. Its Maha Aarti in the evening, and Ganga would participate only if her food is liked. Till Maha Aarti, she can’t take a single sip of water as well. Savitri asks Ganga if she is hurt, she may take rest. Ganga says her feet are hurt, she will surely cook in time.
Pratab and Savitri wait outside Math. Savitri asks Pratab if Ganga is unable to cook, he must keep a backup. Jhumki comes to take Ganga along as Savitri called her. Inside, Shiv stood enraged. The food had all been mixed with dead animals and dust. Savitri scolds her for not keeping the food well. Ganga replies she took care of all the food. Shiv says its time to think how bhojan would be arranged. Ganga was ready to cook again.
Savitri asks if she would cook for 70 people in an hour, she can’t put her family’s grace at stake. Ganga qualifies they will have to get the food prepared from outside as well. Shiv says Ganga only has one hour. Kushal and Dai Maa helps Ganga as she prepares the food.
Shiv comes to see the prepared food and smiles. Savitri and Pratab were shocked. Shiv heads to take the food. Everyone go inside. Ganga tells Shiv she had covered the food, people don’t trust her but Shiv must trust her. Shiv tells her to stop blaming others, she must not compare herself with anyone.
She must be happy to serve others. Ganga asks if Shiv doesn’t value her efforts, this means she has failed today. Shiv leaves. Savitri watches this and says they would now see what happens to Ganga during Pooja. She was sure Shiv himself would forbid her sit for Pooja with him.
At home, Jhumki comes downstairs with an empty water pot and poses to fell in the middle of the hall. She slaps the pot heavily on floor. Ganga comes to her concerned, and tries to wake Jhumki. She then pours water to make Jhumki drink from it. Savitri comes there with Pratab and asks Ganga what she has been doing; Jhumki is fasting today. Ganga was about to reply when Jhumki wakes up and cries about having her fast broken.
Ganga says she had been asking for water when unconscious. Jhumki beats her head crying. Ganga was left worried. Savitri says Shiv was right, Ganga is not worthy of taking such a huge responsibility. Parvati always fulfilled her responsibilities well, but Ganga didn’t bother to ask for making Jhumki drink water. Shiv seconds Ganga, as they can’t blame Ganga for what happened.
When someone has fallen sick, Ganga helped her. One must not exert their health for the sake of rituals, had there been Parvati in place of Ganga she must have done the same. He announces everyone would do the aarti, and asks Ganga to have water as there is a lot left to be done. He doesn’t want her to put herself in trouble.
Shiv leaves, Savitri was curt. Ganga comes to Savitri and asks if she must bring the third knot for Pooja as well. Savitri had been fuming and doesn’t respond
During the Pooja, Ganga happily stands beside Shiv. Savitri tells Pratab this is a minor victory, she hasn’t played her best yet. Pratab says no one can stop Ganga from sitting in Pooja. Savitri says there is a man everyone at Math is afraid of, even Shiv can’t deny his orders and he must forbid Ganga to sit in the Pooja.
An old man is shown walking on dark streets. Ganga gets Aarti to everyone. A man comes in to inform about the old man’s arrival. Shiv asks how Karoni Baba arrived. Savitri says he didn’t arrive for last three years, this time Ganga has to do the Pooja so she called him here. Ganga wonders why everyone worried is hearing his name. They all go to welcome Baba. Dai Maa tells Ganga he is a great Sadhu, Savitri must have called him here as Shiv is also afraid of him and may reject any of Ganga’s work.
Inside, Baba says Savitri invited him here saying the new daughter in law would welcome him to family. Ganga brings water for him in glass. He scolds her for not bringing metal glass. Ganga leaves to get metal glass, Baba says he now realized she lacks devotion. Savitri tries to second Ganga but he interrupts her saying its not easy to take Parvati’s place. She abide by any of rules, every girl is not eligible for this. He stands up to take rest. Shiv comes to Ganga saying Karoli Baba is strict about rules, each of his work must be done accordingly.
Dai Maa comes to call Ganga for bringing Baba’s luggage inside. Jhumki enters the room and throws filthy water over his bed to get Ganga disgraced. Ganga and Dai Maa carries the bags inside and were shocked to see the tea stain over the bed. Dai Maa says they can’t trust anyone in the family; she says they were left with a single mattress. Ganga asks what they must do, Baba would reach here in half an hour.
Ganga runs to get the mattress. At home, she folds her mattress to carry it for Baba. People watch Ganga carry the mattress with much exertion. Dai Maa was annoyed where she would sleep tonight. Ganga says it’s her duty to take care of a guest. She brings new bed spread, and hurries outside.
At midnight, Shiv returns home and notices Ganga sleeping on floor. He tries to wake her up, then finds her shivering with cold. He carries a heater to Ganga trying to warm her, but all in vain. He finally carries her to his bed, Ganga holds his hand there. Shiv sits beside her bed and fell asleep there.
The next morning, Shiv was still sleeping with his hand in Ganga’s. Ganga wakes up and finds herself on bed while Shiv sleeping in a sitting position beside the bed. She leaves his bed at once. Shiv also woke up and explain she had been shivering out of cold. Ganga says he could have slept inside, or woken her up. Shiv says he is used to it, Ganga was tired of hard work. Ganga thanks him.
Ganga tells Shiv firstly, she never understood him but now she does. Earlier, she didn’t work with much passion but she would. Dai Maa comes to inform Ganga that Baba called her to Math. Baba tells Ganga Parvati wished for a Pooja that Ganga must accomplish now. She must walk to the top most temple, would she be able to take the challenge. Dai Maa was worried about Ganga’s injured feet, but Ganga takes the responsibility.
Baba says he would wait for her in temple. Savitri was determined not to let Ganga succeed. Ganga begins the tough Pooja barefooted. A man comes to Ganga concerned for her and tries to snatch the idol off her hand. The idol fell off her hand.
