Gangaa 16 January 2020: Shiv notices Ganga’s anger for him. Radhika brings the plate, everyone compliments her for helping her mother. Kushaal informs Savitri that tomorrow is a good date for Pagri event. Aashi comes to the table and denies taking as much pulao. Ganga says she would change. Shiv offers about exchanging the platter, Radhika was still worried. Ganga switches the plates.
Shiv exchanges his plate with Aashi. Radhika tells him not to eat as rice is not good, but he still eats. He finds it very spicy, but continues eating thinking Ganga has cooked for first time. Later, he goes from there. Radhika follows him and gives him water. She accepts that she was behind all this as she wanted to trouble Aashi. She apologises for it.
He explains her that she shouldn’t do things like this that can hurt others. She knows Aashi can’t eat spicy food. She says she won’t do it again. Ganga is hearing all this. Radhika questions Shiv why he continued eating even after finding it spicy. He says he insulted Ganga for no reason and would hurt her more if he rejected food made by her. He tells her to go and eat. Radhika goes. Shiv sees Ganga standing there. He tells her he would never be able to give her Parvati’s place, but promises that he would never disrespect from now.
Chachi is cleaning up. Radhika comes and says she still has to eat. Chachi tries to find out what happened earlier from her. She says food is not good, that is why Shiv left in middle. Radhika tells her everything that she made food spicy so Aashi gets angry at Ganga, but Shiv ate that food. She says it’s all her fault. Chachi fumes her against Ganga saying it was Ganga’s mistake. She could have removed some rice from Aashi’s plate instead exchanging. Ganga comes with food for Radhika. She gets angry and says she doesn’t want to eat. Food is not good. She leaves.
Radhika is crying and talking to Parvati’s photo. She says she will get lonely if Ganga snatches Shiv away from her.
While sleeping, Jumki kicks Pratap off the bed. Her husband gets mad. She apologises to him. Someone knocks the door. It’s Shiv. He tells Pratap to come outside. He wants to talk. Jumki wonders what Shiv wants to talk about.
Shiv tells Pratap there are mistakes in accounting. Pratap checks and says everything looks okay. It’s just 1000-2000 rps difference. Pratap says for him even 1 rps matter and says he will find out. He gets a call that Chotu is sick. He leaves to go to him. Pratap says tomorrow it will be last day for Shiv, then he will take his place.
Later when Shiv returns late night, Daima tells him he didn’t eat anything and asks him to eat before sleeping. He says he is not hungry. Ganga comes. Daima tells Ganga to give food to Shiv, but he says he is not angry and asks them to sleep. He leaves. Daima tells Ganga don’t know what Shiv punishes himself for after Parvati left. She tells Ganga to eat something as well, as she also didn’t eat. She too refuses.
In morning, Jumki is complaining she has to do all work even after new bahu came. Pratap comes there. Jumki asks why he got so ready.. he won’t be getting any attention. Pratap tells her to do her work.. time will tell who is ‘king’ him or Shiv.
Shiv is talking to his father’s photo. He takes blessings from him and says he will never be like him, but he will fulfill all his responsibilities, especially his responsibility for Ganga that his father gave him before passing away.
Ganga is getting ready. Daima is helping her. Ganga gets some rough memories from her past as she puts mangalsutra, sindhoor, etc. Daima gives her necklace and says all will recognise her as badi bahu. Daima goes for some work. Ganga is not able to close the hook of necklace. Shiv comes there and sees her struggling. He says he will send someone. Ganga says they don’t have time and asks him to do it. He hesitantly does it. Daima smiles seeing them.
Shiv helps Ganga with the hook and then starts leaving. Ganga thanks him. He stops and says she is looking pretty in that sari. Radhika is not happy seeing this. She recalls Jumki’s words that Ganga is very cunning, she is trying to make Shiv hers. She says she wants to look pretty, so Shiv praises her, but she won’t let that happen.
Amma wants Shiv to lose confidence on himself and then their win will be easier. Pratap says her not to worry.
Radhika plans to drop cold water on Ganga so her makeup spoils and she doesn’t look pretty while family is doing last minute preparations. Amma tells Ganga to get something from outside. Radhika is all set to drop water. Jumki says Ganga is trying to impress Amma too, but she won’t let it happen. She tells Ganga she will go and get it. Water gets dropped on her.
Radhika gets shocked seeing her instead Ganga. All family members come there. Radhika runs away. Ganga sees her. She goes to her and tells what she did is not right. Shiv told her not to do such silly things, still she didn’t listen to him. Radhika says, so what? she will go and complain to him? Ganga says she won’t do anything such. She’s just telling her what she is doing is not right.
Whole family is doing puja. Daima is happy for Shiv. After puja, Amma was going to put pagdi (turban) on Shiv’s head. Just then a villager comes in and says Shiv doesn’t deserve that pagdi. He killed his innocent child. Everyone’s shocked. The villager says Shiv gave medicine to his child..after which his health got worse and he died before they could do anything. Shiv says he gave ayurvedic medicine, so it’s impossible to get any harm from it.
He wants to check the child, but his parents don’t let Shiv touch and tell all villagers that he doesn’t deserve this position. They leave. Ganga sees child’s face and she says it’s Chotu. Amma does drama and tells Shiv what he has done. Shiv has nothing to say and leaves there in disbelief. Pratap and Amma smile at each other.
Family returns home and they are having discussion. Kushal says they should have at least checked the child. How they can just believe what they said. Amma says what would happen by seeing the child? Would he become alive again? Jumki says since Ganga has come to that house, one or another thing has been happening with them. They all leave from there except Ganga and Daima.
Ganga says she can’t believe no one except Kushal trust on Shiv. No one thinks about him. Family should help each other especially during bad time, but here no such thing is happening. Daima asks Ganga whether she trusts Shiv. She says the way she saw him working, she doesn’t think he can do such thing. Daima tells her to go and talk to Shiv them. He must be sitting beside Parvati’s photo.
Ganga comes to Shiv. He’s talking to Parvati and blaming himself for killing an innocent child. He disappointer her, his father, everyone. He’s not worth of getting all respect that villagers give him. He finished all. Ganga feels bad for him. Kushal comes there. He tells Ganga that Shiv always thought about others and today this.. with him? Last night he got call that a child is sick and he went to help him late night. Ganga says it sounds strange that ayurvedic medicine killed someone. Kushal says it’s impossible.
Shiv’s medicine works as magic. He gives medicine mixing in milk. Ganga recalls Chotu telling her someone (didn’t get name) gives him medicine in milk daily and it tastes very bitter. She feels something is not right and decides to bring back Shiv’s respect no matter what.
