Gangaa update Sunday 26 April 2020

Gangaa 26 April 2020: Babli says my eyes are weak and I wear specs but still I cannot tell this to the groom’s family as Prabha Mami has told me not to. I am not fond of cooking, sewing but I will have to agree with others as they want it to be that ways. It is my life but someone else is taking all the decisions for me.

<< Gangaa Saturday 25 April 2020 update

Maybe this is what happens with every girl. no one thinks about what she wants or thinks. Ganga gives her Akshay’s test results. I will pass her if you say so. Babli sadly says it doesn’t matter. Bau ji wants this alliance to happy. it doesn’t matter what I say.

Babli’s father decides to talk about what all will be given in the marriage. Niranjan disagrees. Dowry is wrong. I cannot let anything wrong happen in my house. He almost gets into a verbal spat with his BIL when Akshay’s parents tell them that Akshay is also against dowry. He will get upset if he finds out that we are talking about it. He is our only son. we want a good wedding. Niranjan feels good. Akshay’s mother wants to hear it from Akshay if he likes Babli or not.

Sagar leaves from the room when Babli comes there. Ganga meets Sagar. She refuses to go with him to eat breakfast and goes towards the room. Akshay tells Babli about Delhi. It is a very good city and it means freedom. I am the only son of my parents so I came back here. What have you thought? Tell me something about yourself. What are your dreams? Babli starts crying. She runs out of the room without saying anything. Ganga is standing by the door.

Akshay asks Ganga what happened to Babli. Did I say something wrong? Ganga nods. Ask me about her. She shows Babli’s result to Akshay. Didi wants to study but her father is pushing her for marriage. Akshay is taken aback. No one has told me anything about it. She replies that how will anyone know when they don’t ask her anything. She is a girl so she has to do what she is told. She hasn’t cooked any of the items that are there downstairs and she has not sewn at all.

She cannot see without specs which is why she dropped tea. This isn’t right! Akshay very sweetly asks her what he should do. She folds her hands before him. please tell everyone that you don’t want to marry her. You are a boy so they will listen to you. he reasons that Babli’s problem may not go away that ways or she will be happy or her father wont fix her alliance somewhere else. I have a condition if you want me not to marry your sister – you will have to marry me! Ganga shakes her head in shock. He smiles and leaves from there.

Sagar asks Ganga if everything is fine. She remarks that everything has gone wrong. This guy is very bad. Sagar finds him good but she says that guy is very smart. He dint ask you for marriage so you don’t mind. He asked for my hand. Sagar is taken aback.

Akshay comes downstairs. He tells his parents that Drishti is not the kind of girl that he is looking for. Everyone is shocked. Babli’s father looks upstairs at Babli. Niranjan and everyone talk in Drishti’s favour. Akshay says she knows everything. She is way too good. She cooks everything at home so I wont be able to go outside to have food. I like branded clothes whereas she likes to sew. Amma ji confesses the truth in haste. It was all Prabha’s plan.

We made a mistake. Akshay says my parents made the same mistake. They spoke too highly of me. I am not a genius like your daughter. Papa got me admitted in the college by paying donation. Drishti is very talented. No one has asked for her opinion. That should happen as it is such an important matter of her life. I too dint realise it but that little girl explained things to me. Amma ji and her SIL gets angry hearing Ganga’s name whereas everyone else is happy.

Drishti is much better than me in everything so it should be her decision actually. I will also agree for this alliance if Drishti says yes. he directly asks Drishti if she will say yest o him. Babli is all shy. Her father is angry by Akshay’s behaviour but Akshay tells him clearly that his decision will be acceptable to his parent’s. You can call and tell my father what Drishti decides. He leaves with his parents but returns to pick up his mother’s phone. He adds that he wont mind it if Drishti agrees to marry him and wants to study afterwards. I have done MBA so my wife too should be a graduate atleast. I think specs will suit your face a lot. Babli is smiling shyly after listening to his words / opinion.

Amma ji finds it all rubbish. Niranjan happily explains to her that Akshay has liked Drishti. Prabha takes credit for it but goes quiet after seeing Babli’s father’s straight face. They all enjoy jalebis. Niranjan personally feeds his BIL sweets. He goes to his study room. Amma ji and her SIL look at each other.

Babli thinks of Akshay’s words. She is all smiles. Sagar and Ganga come there. They decide to tell Ganga’s version of truth to Babli. Don’t marry that guy. He is very smart. when you ran away from the room crying then he asked me to get married to him. Isn’t he over smart? Babli smiles. I too would have asked you the same question if I was a guy? Ganga tries to explain but Amma ji interrupts her. you are upset as Akshay agreed for the alliance? Babli’s father yet again calls Ganga a servant. Amma ji scolds Ganga for talking to that guy when she had told her against it. you proved us a liar. Who are you to speak in between my family matters? Babli tries to say something when her father angrily tells her to go out of the room. Niranjan comes there. Amma ji blames Ganga for proving them a liar before Akshay and his family. Ganga reasons that she only told the truth. Amma ji and Mami had lied.

Prabha adds fuel to the fire. Amma ji’s SIL says I wont be able to bear it anymore. One’s respect in their own hands! I don’t want to talk to servants or I would have shown her her right place today. Amma ji tries to take Ganga away to punish her but Niranjan tells her to let it be. Everything turned in our favour in the end. Ganga not just helped us but she also helped Babli in a way. It is a good occasion so we should let bygones be bygones. I will talk to her. She wont do it again. He takes Ganga to his room.

Ganga asks Niranjan what she has done. Why is everyone scolding me? I only said the truth. It isn’t wrong to speak truth. My Bappa always used to say that I shouldn’t be scared or fear anyone to speak the truth. This is what I did. Niranjan points out that Ganga said so only because her Bappa had said her to. You weren’t scared of Amma ji, babli’s father or me? Ganga nods. He continues, it is good to say truth. You have that confidence too but where did it disappear when Amma ji was stopping you from studying? Why dint you tell me the truth then? You were quiet as you yourself don’t want to study.

Ganga nods again. he explains that one cna do anything that you really want to do. No enemy, obstacles can stop him. I can see the same spirit in you. You can do whatever you want to. You dint want to study so you dint! We have decided not to push you for the same from now onwards. I wil tell the Master ji not to come here. She asks him if he will be upset with her in case she doesn’t study. He replies that it is no point scolding her if she doesn’t want to. Ganga is thrilled. She runs out of the room happily.

Madhvi is confused. We cannot ask kids what they want. We have to explain them and make them understand. You listened to Ganga so easily? He knows that Ganga is different from other kids. She will come to me herself when she will feel like studying. The day will come real soon. As far as I understand her, the day will come real soon when she will understand the importance of education. No one will be able to stop her then.

Ganga comes to Sagar’s room happily. She shares the good news with him. He is thrilled. The day went by nicely. Dadi and Fufa ji got angry but Babli Didi is very happy. She likes the groom. He asks Ganga what kind of a groom she wants. Ganga gets thinking. He should be like Babu. Sagar says such tall and a guy with moustache? She denies. No moustache but he should be good like him, Chota Babu! Sagar smiles. I will tell mummy that you want a groom like papa. She feels that Madhvi will get happy after hearing it. Sagar laughs at her cute answers. You are a little mad.

Babli’s father is reading newspaper. Babli is doing puja. Madhvi is happy to see her do so. Who taught you this? babli says my mother used to do puja like this only. Amma ji calls her daughter Suman a diamond. She left us in such a young age though. You are just like your mother. I think of her after looking at you but you too are leaving us now. Niranjan reasons that they will be happy to see Babli happy. He turns to Babli. We all liked Akshay and he liked you. You must have heard what he had said when he was leaving. The decision is in your hands.

Ganga is watching everything from a distance. Babli’s father interrupts them. The elders of the house make all the decisions of life. What will Babli say? Niranjan wants Babli’s opinion as she has to spend her life with Akshay after all. Did you like him? Babli looks at Ganga who shakes her head at her. Amma ji sends Ganga away. Niranjan asks Babli again. Amma ji says Babli will anyways feel ashamed before her father.

Babli’s father gets up angrily. I have decided. Babli will marry Dubey Sahab’s son. He walks out from there. Amma ji and Madhvi go to do something. Niranjan tells Babli that he is going to court for now. I will ask you again at night. You can tell me what’s in your heart without fearing anyone. I will handle BIL.

Sagar is waiting for Ganga. She hasn’t packed my bag yet. She comes running. I was drying the clothes. It is Sagar’s last exam today. keep the kites ready. Pulkit is irked with Sagar for always depending on Ganga. Can’t you do anything on your own? Sagar replies that Ganga readies everything nicely. She knows what I like and how. I don’t have to tell her anything. Sagar gives credit to Ganga for doing everything perfectly for him and on time. Ganga smiles hearing it.

Drishti comes to help Madhvi. Madhvi asks about her opinion. What have you decided? Babli too found him good. He seems to be a simple man. It isn’t enough to make a relation for life. We don’t know each other that well yet. Madhvi replies that this is what happens in arranged marriages. You have to trust on time and get married. You will get to know everything about each other eventually while living with each other. Everything falls in place easily when you start understanding each other. Don’t think too much. Just follow your heart and leave everything else on God. Everything will be good. She goes to check if the food is ready as the kids will return home hungry. Babli is in thoughts.

Ganga instructs Maharaj ji what to make for Sagar and how he likes it. She goes to ready kites for Sagar. He will shout for it otherwise. He cannot do anything without me. Maharaj ji smiles while she runs out hurriedly. Madhvi comes to ask Maharaj ji if he has made Sagar’s favourite dishes. He replies that Ganga has reminded him atleast 10 times since morning. Ganga comes to tell Maharaj ji about another dish. Madhvi teases her about her concern for Sagar. Ganga repeats what Sagar had said in the morning. Madhvi is relieved. Now I don’t have to worry about what Sagar wants. You can ask Ganga. Ganga goes out to check whether Sagar has come or not. Maharaj ji thinks of Ganga’s attachment to Sagar. She thinks that only she has all the rights over him. Lord please take care of this little girl’s pure heart.

Babli’s father comes to Amma ji’s room. She gets up when she notices him. he talks to her regarding Niranjan. I am a little concerned about him. what was the point of asking for Babli’s opinion? This is not an age for one to understand what’s right for wrong for himself. Babli is at a very tender age. She can fall for anyone’s words in this age. That girl was instigating her yesterday. I cannot understand why you have kept her in the house. She agrees with him. Niranjan felt pity for her and brought her home. His wife too had to support him so she showers motherly love on her.

Sagar too has become fond of her. He never plays with anyone else now. You know about Sagar so I thought it is ok if he is happy because of an orphan girl. He nods. I am happy if he is happy. he asks her if Sagar supports that girl a lot. She nods. Sagar cannot bear it if anyone says even a word against that girl. Niranjan scolds her if she is wrong but no one dares to say anything to Ganga before Sagar. I wonder what black magic she has done. I have given up. He asks her what if these two kids get into a fight.

They are kids after all. They will understand what we will tell them. The kids have no brains of their own at this age. There is only one weapon to explain anything to kids – love and affection.

Maid comes upstairs to clean but Ganga tells her to do it later. I am readying the kite for Sagar. He will play with me as soon as he is home. They bicker as usual. Sagar returns home but he sits down with Ganga to look at the kite. Amma ji and her SIL come there. Amma ji tries to talk to Sagar about his exam and showers love on him. Pulkit walks by after telling them that his exam went fine. I am going to my room to do online chatting with my friends. His Fufa ji is irked with him for talking in English. Pulkit apologizes saying he has no idea what it is called in Hindi. Sagar begins to go to fly the kite when his Fufa stops him. I thought you will come to learn chess from me. Sagar agrees to do it in evening. I want to fly kite as of now.

Amma ji diverts him saying it is very sunny outside. Fufa ji lures him for teaching him smart techniques. You will learn it easily. It is a game of intelligent people. Sagar agrees and leaves with his Fufa ji. Ganga calls out for Sagar. I have got kheer made for you. He tells her to send it in Fufa ji’s room. Amma ji is happy to see her sad. Maid comes back to tease Ganga again. You were so anxious to play with Sagar. What will you do now? Ganga confidently gives her fitting replies. He has agreed to do it in the evening. What if he faints in this heat?

Fufa ji and Sagar sit down to play chess. Fufa ji talks about Niranjan. He is a very good player. You too must know about it. Sagar answers his questions correctly. He talks about the King and Vazir (commander). It is a Vazir’s dharma to fight for his King but in the end, the King is the winner. Sagar is confused. Fufa ji talks about equality. Fights happen between two kings. These soldiers, Vazirs, etc are merely pawns in the game. He gives Ganga’s example intentionally. Fufa ji calls Ganga a servant. Sagar denies but Fufa ji tells him to understand his importance after all. You are a King. No soldier can match a King’s order. It is his duty to follow his King’s orders. One should always keep their soldiers at a distance. You too don’t have to be so nice with Ganga. Make her do all the work but think of yourself as above her. Always make the other person bend down before you if you want to rule. Sagar is in thoughts.
