Gangaa 7 June 2020: Amma says God please help me. She asks people to save Ganga. Sagar gets happy to see his Dadi supporting Ganga. Sahyogi’s men hold Amma ji. Sahyogi continues asking people to see Devi’s blessings. He turns to Amma ji. You should be happy.
people don’t like widows but see how they are touching Ganga’s feet today. Why should I stop them? Ganga says she did what Amma ji wanted. Amma ji denies. I wanted to save both of you. Bal Mahant is the son of that mother and then you! I kept asking everyone to stop the competition but no one pay heed to me. I am helpless. I cannot help you even though I want to. Sahyogi announces that it is time for Ganga’s Jal Samadhi. Sagar, Amma ji and Ganga are stunned.
Niru hopes that nothing happens to Ganga. She hasn’t seen anything. I hope we aren’t late. She should be fine.
One disciple pays drum while pundit ji blows conch. Another disciple opens one door. They bring in a big box. Sagar requests them not to kill Ganga. Leave me. Niru asks Inspector to hurry up. Ganga’s life is in danger. Ganga is forced to sit inside the box. Ganga and Sagar scream each other’s name. Amma ji looks on in shock. She continuously prays to God to save Ganga. Bal Mahant feels bad for her. Sagar suddenly shouts that there is a snake around. Everyone runs helter-skelter. Sagar opens the box. Run away, Ganga. Listen to me today atleast! Sahyogi asks everyone to calm down. Catch that girl. Sagar is happy as he knows how fast Ganga runs. No one will be able to catch her. Sahyogi’s men are after Ganga but they lose track of her. NIru and policemen reach the ashram.
Ganga hears someone calling out for help. It is Bal Mahant’s mother. Ganga frees her. Who is she and who locked her here?
Sagar tells Inspector that he helped Ganga flee or these people would have killed her forcefully. Inspector corners Sahyogi. You fool innocent people. You will be punished for your misdeeds today. Sahyogi asks him for proof. Ganga walks in with Mahant ji’s mother. She is the witness. Mahant’s mother slaps Sahyogi. You are a cheater! You trapped my son for your benefit. You wanted to kill my son just the way you killed Mahant Sadanand ji? You lied to everyone. You have cheated everyone. You have done adhrama. You will never be happy. People will never forgive you. Pundit ji is shocked to know the truth. Police arrests Sahyogi.
Mahant ji hugs his mother. Ganga quietly leaves from there. Sagar begins to talk to Ganga but does not notice her. Where is Ganga? Amma ji too looks around.
Barkha is looking at the old pics. She appreciates Niru. He still looks the same. His age has stopped. I want a husband like him only. Madhvi is more worried about what will be happening in Matth. Barkha tells her not to worry. Jijz will take care of everything. Madhvi cannot calm down be her words. Barkha notices Amma ji entering inside. Niru comes with her. Madhvi can see that he looks angry. Hope everything is ok.
Niru is upset with his mother as she did not tell him about Jal Samadhi. Thankfully, Sagar called me. Would you have stopped them on your own? Amma ji replies that she could not think of anything at that time. I don’t like her but I cannot force her to die. Sagar could not find Ganga anywhere in the house. He had thought that she would have been here. Niru reasons that Ganga wont come as she could not fulfil her promise. Sagar nods. Ganga is arrogant. She wont come back till Dadi brings her back. Niru offers to do it. I will bring her back with me at any cost. AMma ji asks him if he will yet again go against his mother. Niru nods. Your words are important but it is equally important for me to fulfil my responsibility towards the girl whom I had brought home. Amma ji knows that Ganga wont come. She did not fulfil my promise. You know my stubbornness but have you seen how stubborn she is? I can bet she wont come back. Niru knows how much Ganga loves her self respect but today she will have to come. He leaves.
Prabha is telling her friend about Ganga. Amma ji is very strict. She never listens to anyone. She wont let Ganga come back ever. She notices the beautiful cup set. Her friend shares that she got it from Germany. She asks servant to clean the mess as Prabha spills the tea. Her friend has got the rest of the stuff from UK. Prabha mistakes it for Uttarakhand. Her friend excuses herself to attend a phone call. Prabha rues that she dint get lucky like her friend. My husband is good for nothing. Her friend wants to meet Prabha at her home too. Prabha does not want her friend to come to her small house. I will have to do something else. She lies to her friend. My husband is not back from Singapore yet. I will call you over to my house as soon as he is back. Her friend asks her the connection between Indian Railways and Singapore. Prabha cooks up a story. Prabha thinks of doing something to make an impression on her friend.
Ganga is in the ashram. She thinks of what all happened today. She is sad as she could not fulfil her promise given to Amma ji. Sudha and all the ladies come there. Sudha gives guava to Ganga. I know you don’t like alms. I have plucked it from a tree after taking the permission of the guard. Ganga takes it. Sudha asks her if she knew the last answer. Ganga nods. Sudha hugs her. Why did you keep quiet then? Anything could have happened with you. Weren’t you scared? Ganga denies. You all were there to help me but Mahant ji only had his mother by his side. She was crying badly. What would have happened to her if he had died? It is good that Amma ji stopped me from giving the answer. Sudha talks about her promise to Amma ji. How will you go back in that house then? Ganga replies that she can never go back in that house now. Niru asks her why she is saying so. I have come to take you with me.
Madhvi brings milk for Sagar. He is sitting by the window. She asks him to have milk. You have been running around all day without eating or drinking anything. Plus, I will be really upset if you do anything stealthily next time. He says sorry to her. I was worried for Ganga. You had told me not to go so I went without telling you. He is not in a mood to drink milk. She tells him not to worry. Papa will bring Ganga. Sagar knows how stubborn Ganga is. She wont listen to anyone including Papa. Madhvi has faith in Niru. He too hopes that his father is able to bring back Ganga. It will prove if her self-respect matters more to her or my friendship. Madhvi hopes that Ganga agrees to return home.
Niru reminds Ganga that it was he who brought her home from ghaat. I took all your responsibility back then. I too have the same rights today too. You are right. Amma ji has not asked me to bring you back yet I will do it. You will live with us. She could not fulfil her promise. How will I face Amma ji then? I will be a liar then. I miss all of you a lot. I can live in ashram while missing you all and crying for you but I wont be able to live in the house without fulfilling my promise. It will eat me from inside. Niru nods. I know how much you love your self-respect. I had understood it on day one only that you wont compromise on it even if the situation is worst. Still I came to take you with me. I thought you might change your mind but no problem. I wont pressurize you. Follow your heart. You will tell your Babu whenever you need something? She nods. He tells her to take care of herself. He sadly leaves from there. Sudha and all the ladies are moved to tears. Sudha stops Mamta from going after Ganga as she runs inside. Let her stay alone for a while. She wont cry before us. She knows that she only has blocked her way to go back to Amma ji’s house. She must be hurt. She will feel better if she cries.
Sagar is not happy to know that Ganga dint come today too. Our friendship stands nowhere before your self-respect!
Ganga looks out of the window. She reminisces the old times with Chaturvedi family. Sorry Babu. I hurt you by refusing to come with you. Sagar too must be angry with me. He will never understand why I said so.
In his room, Sagar thinks that Ganga will never consider him her friend. You dint do right with me. I wont forgive you even if you apologize to me 10 times.
Next morning, Sagar has kept kites and the wooden bicycle on the bed. He looks angry. Barkha brings Banana milkshake for him. He refuses to drink it. Let me do my work. I am going to return her all her stuff when she does not want to come back. I am going to return it all to her. Barkha stops him. Ganga will come one day. Let her stuff stay here. Sagar denies. She has proved it what she finds more valuable. I am going. Barkha fails in stopping him. You worry so much for her. You think you will get her out of your life by returning her things to her? No, it cannot happen. Her phone rings. She picks up the call and simply says that she is coming.
Amma ji lights incense sticks before her late husband’s photo. Like every year, I wanted to do your shrad following proper rituals today as well but I wont be able to do it. Please forgive me. Hope you understand my problem. Niru joins her. She sits down on the bed. Niru and Madhvi pay respect to Niru’s late father. Maharaj ji comes to tell Amma ji that someone has come to meet her. She does not want to meet anyone but he suggests her to see the person once. You may get happy after seeing that person.
Amma ji is pleasantly surprised to see Bal Mahant and his mother waiting for her. He says he isn’t Bal Mahant but Gaurav. His mother thanks Amma ji for saving her son. He adds he has come to do her late husband’s shrad.
Gautam (Bal Mahant’s real name) says I am not a Mahant but a Brahmin for sure. I know all the rituals. This was what was decided for the competition if I lose. Niru says you won. Gautam shares that Ganga helped him win.
She is great that she helped me win by telling me the answer. She won in reality. I should be doing this much atleast. I have come to do the shrad but only if you allow. Amma ji nods. She asks Maharaj ji to make all the preps. Gautam wants to meet Ganga first. I got free from Bada Panda because of her only. I got this life because of her. I want to thank her first. Where is she? Everyone is quiet. He wants to know if she went back to the ashram to live with the widows. Amma ji asks them to sit. Ganga will come. Niru asks Gautam to sit. Amma ji thinks that Ganga will keep on creating problems for her even if she is away from the house. Mahant ji wants to meet her. What should I do now?
On the road, Ganga thinks of today’s shrad. I failed my promise. Now I wont be able to go back to the house. Barkha engages in a fight with auto driver as he is charging more money than necessary. Ganga intervenes. She actually helps Barkha is gaining extra 20 bucks back. Ganga leaves. Barkha calls out for Ganga but she is gone. Barkha gets a call from the person she has come to meet. He is late. Barkha thinks that she couldn’t even say thanks to that girl. She was so cute. Maybe she was a widow. She realises that it must be Sagar’s Ganga! Good choice, Sagar! She is something.
The ashram ladies feel bad for Ganga. Now she will have to live all her life in ashram only. Sudha is worried till when Ganga will stay hungry. She does not eat anything from the alms that we get. None of them have seen her since morning. Ganga enters just then. Ganga says I wont be able to go back to Babu’s house ever now. I need money to sustain my life and studies. She got work from her. I will get money for my expenses by doing something and other.
Amma ji asks her who will do household work if she will be busy in all this. Have you decided to trouble these ladies now? Only I can handle you, not them! Come now. Let them all live in peace. Maharaj ji has aged before his age. Mehri is good for nothing. I have a lot to do for shrad. Come with me. Ganga and everyone is thrilled that Amma ji has come to take Ganga home with her. Ganga broadly smiles at Amma ji.
You said you will never come to take me. How did this happen today? Amma ji gives her no straight answer. I don’t want to change my mind. Ganga yet again asks her if she came as she defeated Mahant ji. Ganga knows that she will scold her but never say that she misses her. Amma ji gives her answers in her style. I don’t like carrying problems with me all the time. Come with me if you want to. Ganga nods. She hugs Sudha Bua and Pishi Ma. Take care both of you. She runs to get her potli. Ganga remarks that Amma ji looks someone else till she acts angry. Let us go home now. We have a lot to do. You don’t look good when you talk sweetly. Everyone smiles hearing their bitter-sweet convo.
Ganga enters Chaturvedi Sadan. She thinks of the old times. I am back to my house, my family now. I used to miss them all so much. Now I will live here forever. Niru and Madhvi, Maharaj ji and Mehri come out to welcome her inside. Amma ji remarks that Babu started showering his love again. He asks them all if they want to take Ganga’s aarti. Let us all go inside. Ganga asks Madhvi how she is. Madhvi nods that she is good. Bal Mahant ji is waiting for you. NIru holds out his hand for her. She gladly keeps her hand in his. Title track plays. All of them get inside together. Ganga thinks of Sagar. He used to ask me to come. Now he hasn’t come down to meet me. He must be in his room.
Sagar comes to ashram. He returns Ganga’s stuff to Pishi Ma. Tell her to keep her things with her only. Tell her that I am angry with her. I don’t want to see her face or ever talk to her. Sudha Bua says this cannot happen. It all went wrong. Amma ji took Ganga home. Sagar is thrilled to know it. I should have been at home to welcome her. He runs out. Sudha and everyone smile.
Gautam thanks Ganga for what she did for him. Amma ji thinks that this wouldn’t have happened if she hadn’t stopped Ganga at the right time. Gautam’s mother tells Ganga that she got selfish that she asked Amma ji to stop you in time. Ganga replies that she did what she felt was right. My Amma ji is very good. She is like coconut. She only had sent Sudha Bua to call police. She is so smart. Niru feels proud of both Ganga and his mother. They took the right decision on time. Gautam wants to live his old life. I will study now. Bada Panda had trapped me. Ganga is amazed to know that he studies. Gautam’s mother shares that Gautam is very good in studies. Bada Panda had trapped my son for money as we aren’t rich.
Prabha is shocked to see Ganga back inside Chaturvedi House. You stooped down before her? How and why did you give in before her? Amma ji rues that now she will rub salt to her wounds. Ganga says it wasn’t a game. Prabha is irked by her talks like always. Amma ji asks Madhvi to make preps for the shrad. Ganga assures her that she will take care of everything along with Maharaj ji’s help.
Niru remarks that the house has become so alive after Ganga’s return. Prabha makes faces. She tries to instigate Amma ji but she doesn’t let her utter even a word.
Ganga makes all the preps for the shrad in the kitchen. She even stops Maharaj ji from doing anything. Prabha says she is working as if this is her own house. Amma ji is impressed by her work. How did you so good in all this? Ganga replies that she learnt everything from Sudha Bua and Pishi Ma. I will do anything if you say it sweetly. No one can force me to do anything if they are angry. We will have to clean Mahant ji’s feet today as he has come to do the shrad today. He is older than us after all.
Gautam does the shrad. Sagar excitedly enters calling out for Ganga. She asks him to stop there only. Amma ji nods. The puja has begun. She sends Ganga to bring something from inside. Sagar feels sad that Ganga is already busy in her work. I came to welcome her. Gautam guides Niru about the rituals. Amma ji sends Ganga inside the kitchen to make bhog. Sagar is worried as Ganga got busy yet again. When will she talk to me?
Ganga looks after all the preps of the bhog. Sagar came so late. How do I talk to him in between all this? Sagar looks at her. The puja and lunch finished. Will you come to talk to me now or is there still more work?
Ganga apologizes to Gautam. I spoke rudely to you that day. He too knows he behaved badly with her. she says they are at equal points now. Gautam smiles. Sagar thinks that she doesn’t have time to talk to him but can talk to Mahant ji. Gautam leaves with his mother. Before leaving, Niru thanks him for doing his father’s shrad.
Ganga thinks of talking to Sagar now but cannot see him around. He is bad. He dint even wait for me.
Niru tells Raghav ji that he got a little late. I will leave for court pretty soon. Barkha greets him good morning with a side hug. Madhvi looks uncomfortable. He asks Barkha where she has been. Barkha lies that she went to market to buy something. I met a very strong character girl in the market. Auto driver was charging me extra and that girl scolded him! Ganga bluntly asks her what she is doing in her house. Why did you hold Babu like that? Madhvi was about to tell Ganga about her sister but Barkha is way too excited. I was talking about you only. You are Sagar’s Ganga, right? Amma ji and Prabha hear it as well.
Prabha emphasises on the last line. Ganga nods. But who are you? Barkha is amazed at her attitude. We will rock together. give me high five. Ganga refuses to shake hands with strangers. Niru and Madhvi smile. Madhvi introduces Barkha to Ganga. Ganga looks at Barkha from top to toe. She doesn’t look like you (Madhvi) at all. Look how she speaks to Babu. Barkha and Ganga cutely fight over Niru. He has to intervene to calm the situation. I am her Jija just like I am your Babu. What do you want as a gift? You have done such a big think. You should get a prize for coming back to house. Ganga is more than happy to be back in the house. Barkha asks her if she met Sagar. Ganga denies. I cannot meet him as I have a lot to do. He would have come to me if he wanted to talk. She leaves. Barkha asks for juice from Madhvi. She goes inside to bring it. Prabha leaves for her house.
Niru asks Barkha not to take Ganga’s words to her heart. She is a little but has a very pure heart. Barkha dint mind it at all. I am also like her. Amma ji thinks of 2 problems that are inside her home. She has pain in her back. She asks Mehri to bring water for her. I need to take medicine. She watches Niru and Barkha talking happily to each other. Mehri decides to talk to Amma ji now only. This is the right time.
Barkha is waiting for her friend outside the court. Raghav ji meets Barkha. He recognizes her as well. She is a little taken aback to see her. He says Niru isn’t here yet. She makes an excuse and leaves from there. Raghav ji is confused. If she had to meet Niru then what was she doing outside some other lawyer’s cabin.
Barkha tells her friend that she couldn’t wait outside for long. Barkha ends the call as she spots her college mates. They ask her where she has been. You dint attend internship duty since last few days. Barkha lies that she was unwell. They tease her as she is outside a court. People go to doc when they are unwell but you are here. Did you fall for any lawyer? Barkha makes an excuse and leaves in an auto.
Mehri goes to give water to Amma ji in her room. She also tells her about Barkha lying to her sister about going to university. She was nearby Babu’s office only. She lied to her own sister about her whereabouts. But why? Something is wrong. Madhvi overhears everything from outside the door. Amma ji asks her not to meddle in her household affairs. Madhvi gets thinking. What prompted Barkha to go to Niru’s office? Why did she hid it from me?
Barkha thinks of buying a perfume. I am confused about the brand though. She calls Niru to ask him about the perfume he uses. Prabha meets Barkha there. She is upset to know that Barkha has come here for shopping. I know you have come to buy something for your boyfriend. Barkha fumbles while making excuses. She leaves.
Prabha is sure something is wrong. Barkha was cooking up stories. Sagar gets to know what Ganga said to Barkha. She is arrogant. I waited to talk to her but she doesn’t care. Barkha suggests him to tell Ganga how happy he is that she is back. How will she know if you don’t show her how you feel? He asks her if he will have to do something. She nods. Buy a gift for her. It will show your happiness. He reasons that Ganga too can do something. Barkha denies. Guys have to do it all. Girls want them to show it all the time. They don’t understand things on their own. Trust me. Sagar gets thinking. You (Ganga) will get to know how happy I am by seeing my card since you have come back. I will give her a welcome card. Barkha agrees.
Prabha is checking out her sarees. I cannot wear any of them to Ginny’s kitty party. I have nothing to wear. I will have to buy a new one. Raman has no money and is anyways a big miser. Raman comes inside talking on phone. Prabha helps him find the file he is looking for. He looks at all the mess she has made. She acts all sweet to him. Raman asks Prabha what she wants. She asks for a new saree. My friend Ginny has invited me for a kitty party. She is so rich. Her friends are also very rich. Raman doesn’t have money. He goes aside to attend a call. Prabha makes up her mind to buy a saree anyhow.
In the ashram, Sudha calls out for Ganga. She realises that Ganga has gone back to Chaturvedi House. She gets all sad. Why am I thinking so much about her? It is good that she went away. She wont get anything except darkness here. She will get happiness in that house only. It is good that she left.
Ganga is in the balcony. She too thinks of Sudha Bua. She only would have lit diya. She must have done everything on her own as I am not there. She is a very good and a strong person. She doesn’t know it though. She looks at the moon by joining the thumbs and index fingers of both her hands. Sudha Bua too can get moon in her palms. Right, Bappa? Sagar keeps his hand on her shoulder. She asks him if he finally got time to meet her. He says the same to her. You only had no time for me.
You had been talking to Mahant ji. She reasons that she was talking about puja. How could I come to you between work? You left by the time everything got over. He shares that he had gone to ashram for her. I woke up early morning to return your stuff. She points out that he dint want her to come back here. This is why you went with all my stuff. He calls her mad. I was angry with you back then as you dint listen to me. People would have killed you by drowning you in water. You dint even think once what will I do if you die! He goes quiet as he realises what he just said. They both look at each other.
