Gangaa Written update Saturday 16th March
Ganga is headed towards the kitchen but Palash stops her. Mehri just fed the baby. I think the baby is missing its mother. Ganga says ok. Mehri is tensed while Palash relaxes a bit. Ganga gets a call from Pulkit. He asks her to come home asap. I have to discuss a very important thing regarding the case. She agrees. She excuses herself. Make me talk to Mehri Didi when she is home. He nods. Mehri cries when she realises Ganga has left.
Baba does some black magic. He passes out as a part of his plan. Amma ji sprinkles water on him. he says I am fine. Don’t worry about me. There is an evil spirit in your house. It is none other than your DIL Janvi. I just had a word with her. She said she will take revenge. Amma ji is irked. How do I free myself from this girl? She dint leave us even after dying.
Baba hears her and smirks. She asks for a solution. He gives her something to wear on her hand. you will become your grandson’s shield this way. She does so blindly. He says the effect will soon begin to show. I will call you once again for another yagya. She agrees to do anything for Sagar and leaves. Baba picks up the gold bandle.
Niru talks to Ratan. You have to get Yash’s fingerprints anyhow. Police wants to match it with the fingerprints on the syringe. Ratan is sure Yash cannot do it. I don’t think he will kill anyone. Ganga says we have to find out this only. If he hasn’t done it then it will only be a relief for all of us. You also want the same. Please help us this much. Amma ji has heard their convo. She scolds Ratan. Sagar is in jail because of your son! Yash has always trapped us since the beginning. We have always let him off thinking he is from this house only but not anymore. I will hand him over to police. Ganga says Mama is not at fault. Pulkit nods. It isn’t proved yet that Yash has killed Janvi. Amma ji says it will happen eventually. Prabha has spoiled her son. I will send Yash to jail as he sent my Sagar to jail. Her health worsens. Niru politely signals Ratan who leaves. Ganga gives water to Amma ji. Don’t get angry. Everything will be fine. Mehri Didi has agreed to give her statement. Sagar will be out of jail once the fingerprints match. Everything will be fine. Amma ji thanks Baba mentally. I will be indebted to you for life if Sagar comes home.
Ganga keeps trying Palash and Mehri’s number but they are unreachable. She gets worried. I should go and meet Didi myself. Supriya does not let her go anywhere without having food. It is too late already. Meet her tomorrow. Ganga knows Supriya hasn’t eaten as well. Supriya says its been so many days since we have eaten peacefully. Supriya eats food. Ganga gets lost for a second but Supriya tells her to eat.
Maharaj ji comes inside. Everyone hears a lot many ladies protesting against Chaturvedi Family and Sagar. Niru goes out to check. Janvi’s family has brought them. Pulkit tries to calm the ladies. You are misunderstanding us. Our family has not done anything. The protestor (lady who is leading them) talks against the family. They have killed an innocent girl. People begin to throw stones at them. Niru gets hurt. Pulkit takes him inside somehow. Everyone gets worried. Pulkit tells them everything that happened outside. They speak of dowry demands and killing janvi because of the same. Madhvi tends to Niru’s wounds. People have no work other than meddling in people’s affairs. Ganga wants to handle the people but Pulkit does not let her. Someone throws stone at the windows also. Everyone gets scared. Supriya gets dizzy and falls down. Pulkit and Ganga hold her. Niru makes him call Inspector Dwivedi to handle the situation.
Sagar’s inmate asks Sagar why he looks tensed. Sagar wonders what happened. I told Ganga to take Mehri Didi to our home. No one has come till now. I hope everything is alright. His inmate tells him not to worry. Entire day is still left. Sagar says I know. She must be coming. She went after augmenting with me yesterday. She wont be able to sit peacefully.
Inspector Dwivedi manages the situation outside Chaturvedi House. The situation is same outside police station. Ganga says I will go to meet Mehri Didi but Inspector tells her against it. People are still outside. Let them go. Amma ji thinks of Baba’s words. She asks Niru to take him to Sagar. I will make him wear this black thread right away. Niru tries to make her understand but she insists. Inspector suggests taking them all with him. Staying here is unsafe. Madhvi packs some stuff for Sagar. Niru thanks him. He requests Inspector to drop Pulkit and Supriya to hospital. We will pick them up on our way home. Inspector agrees. Sagar thinks to get Sagar out of jail anyhow.
Ganga comes to police station at night. Everyone is asleep. She steals the key of Sagar’s cell and stealthily goes inside. Sagar is still awake. Ganga opens the lock of his cell. He is surprised to see her there. She asks him to come with her. He says how I can come like this. She keeps her finger on his lips to shush him. They share an eye lock. Come with me quietly. He says what if Inspector sees us. She says everyone is sleeping. We will leave quietly. They both go out carefully avoiding making any noise. They get scared as the constable drops his stick in his sleep. Sagar says what next. She tells him to do what they were going to do. Let’s run as fast as we can. Sagar and Ganga run together on the road holding hands. Constable informs Inspector. Inspector chases them. Stop Sagar or I will shoot now.
Inspector chases Sagar and Ganga. Sagar stumbles in his step and sits up with a start. It was his dream. Amma ji and everyone meets him. She ties the black thread on his hand. He asks his family what happened. how come you all are here suddenly? Niru explains what happened at home. Amma ji got all stubborn afterwards. She wanted to meet you. Sagar is shocked. I cannot think Janvi’s family could stoop so low. Niru reasons that there are many families who think like this. the pressure of media has increased after what happened today. court needs proof but this will add up the emotional pressure. I have spoken to Ratan. I have made him agree to bring Ratan’s fingerprints. If they match with the fingerprints on syringe then our case will be strong. Ganga adds that Mehri has also agreed to give statement.
Sagar asks her if she is still at Palash’s home. Ganga nods. She is safe there. Niru asks Ganga to call Palash. Ask him to bring Mehri here right away. It is better if we record her statement asap. Ganga tries his number but in vain. Niru tries Palash’s number too but it is out of reach. Ganga leaves to bring her from Palash’s house.
Ganga notices all the mess outside Chaturvedi House. She goes to Palash’s house but it is locked. Both Sir and Mehri Di are unreachable. Plus this lock now. Where did they go? Is Sagar right? What did I do! No, it cannot be. Palash Sir must have gone to office. He would have taken Mehri Didi with him. She goes to his office.
Amma ji waits anxiously for Ganga. Niru shares that she went to Palash’s office as his house is locked. Madhvi wonders where he would have taken Mehri. Niru says it isn’t safe to leave her alone at home. He did the right thing. Niru gets a call and goes aside to attend it. Amma ji asks Madhvi to bring water for her. She thinks both Palash and Mehri should not disappear together. it wont be right for Sagar. Baba is right about Janvi’s spirit. I will talk to him. She goes in her room to call him. He asks for more money for another puja. She readily agrees for it.
Ganga finds the door of Palash’s office locked too. Where would he have taken Mehri Didi and her kids to? She calls him again but no use. Was Sagar right? I found Mehri Didi after so much difficulty and made her agree. Is it that Sir does not want Mehri Didi to give her statement? How do I figure out?
Amma ji wonders where to get money from. Niru wont give me any money. Madhvi comes there. What happened? Are you alright? Amma ji nods but Madhvi is sure something is wrong. Maharaj ji asks Madhvi to give her money to bring ration. Madhvi gives money to Maharaj ji. Amma ji peeks from outside. Madhvi and Maharaj ji leave to get the stuff. Amma ji stealthily comes in the room. I am stealing my son’s money only! I will have to do it for Sagar come what may. She is going out but finds Niru at the door. I don’t know why you are doing this and I don’t want to know. I understand that there must be a very big reason behind it. I would only like to say that I would have never said no to you if you would have asked me. Don’t do anything which will embarrass you in front of your eyes. She says I know you will never stop me from taking money from you but you also wont agree to why I took it. She tells him about the Baba. He gets angry. It would have been better had you not told me about this superstition. She calls it her belief. I have done it earlier too. We got to know everything afterwards only. I would have done something good only because of which it happened. He knew everything about Sagar even before I met him. He was even talking to Janvi’s spirit. She nods. He only will help us win. Niru gets thinking. Who is this Baba? I will have to believe you to meet him.
Ganga is all panicked as she comes home. NIru asks her what happened. Ganga shares that Palash is neither at home nor in office. I don’t know what is happening. Was Sagar right? Did I make a mistake by trusting him? It is the last hearing tomorrow and there is no news of Palash Sir. Did I do a mistake by giving Sagar’s life in Palash Sir’s hands? Madhvi cries. What will we do now Babu? How will we save Sagar? Amma ji blames Janvi’s spirit for it. I will make Baba do another puja. Niru shouts at her to stop this superstition. She is surprised. You only said you want to meet Baba. He nods. I only want to prove him fake before you. I don’t want to talk all this stuff in my house after today. Will your Baba come in court to fight the case? We have very less time and have to do a lot. He tells Ganga not to cry. You trust your Babu right? She nods. He assures her he will bring Sagar home. Madhvi says hope it happens or I will never forgive you. I will die without my son. He tells her to have faith. I wont let anything happen to him. He is my son as well.
Ganga is massaging Supriya’s feet. She is doing it absentmindedly. She does not find the bowl of oil and turns to look. Sagar gives the bowl to her. She gets teary eyed seeing him. He sits down next to her and wipes the tears off her face.
In jail, Sagar writes Ganga on the wall. Ishq-e-nashin plays. He imagines Ganga standing there with his blanket and is all surprised. She covers him with the blanket and wipes his tears.
Sagar kisses Ganga on her forehead. She ends up smiling because of him and keeps looking at him lovingly. She holds his hand as he gets up to go. Please don’t go. Take out all your fears. You will be in your home soon. we will fight till the end. We wont give up.
Ganga caresses Sagar’s head in her lap. He says I will never lose hope till you will keep looking lovingly at me like this, with this faith in your eyes. I will never give up till you are with me. His inmate asks him who he is talking to. Sagar looks around startled.
Ganga says this is what I want Sagar. This hope only will bring you back to your loved ones. Supriya asks her who she is talking to.
Chaturvedi family comes to court. The women are protesting there as well against Sagar and Chaturvedi Family. The ladies surround them. Sagar also comes with police. All of them are taken inside safely by police.
Janvi’s parents are talking to their lawyer when Chatruvedi family comes in. All of them look uncomfortably at one another. Ganga calls Pulkit. He has no news of Palash or Mehri. He agrees to call her as soon he gets some info. Has the hearing begun? She shares that it will start as soon as judge will come. We don’t have a judge. How can Palash Sir disappear on the last day of hearing? What will happen now? Sagar comes and stands in the witness box. Judge takes his seat. He asks for both the lawyers. Sabharwal gives his intro before him. Judge asks for Sagar’s lawyer.
Otherwise the decision will go against him in the absence of his lawyer. This court cannot delay the decision anymore. Niru walks in surprising everyone. I am Sagar’s lawyer. Sabharwal gets tensed. I couldn’t do it as a judge so I resigned. I am a lawyer yet again. He presents the papers to judge. Sagar has signed them. I am his lawyer now. Judge checks the papers and then starts the proceeding. Ganga wipes her tears.
Sabharwal presents his side of the story blaming Sagar for killing Janvi. Chaturvedi family is rich yet they demanded dowry from Janvi and her family. It dint stop even after marriage. Niru tells Ganga they have enough proofs like Janvi’s phone call record, the money transfer from Sagar’s account and the fingerprints on the syringe which doesn’t belong to Sagar. We only need a witness. If Mehri comes then we will surely win. I will manage things here somehow. I will try to get another date. If you are able to bring Mehri till then, then it will be good. We have to stop judge from delivering a verdict today. I will try to engage him for 2 hours. Go and bring Mehri till then. She nods.
Outside, Ganga speaks to Pulkit. The hearing has started. If we don’t bring Mehri Didi in two hours then everything will be finished. Pulkit says Palash’s house is still locked. I couldn’t even reach Palash’s mom. She tells him to find Mehri from anywhere. She says we checked everywhere. She reasons that someone might have seen her going out or something. I will go and ask in my locality. He thinks to go to her home in Banaras to find some clue. They end the call. Ganga is waiting for rickshaw when a kid gives a letter to Ganga from Palash’s side. He asks her to come to meet him at some specific place. Ganga is confused. Why is Sir calling me here?
Niru speaks in court about all the clues he has. He points out that there was some third person in the room as well. NIru and Sabharwal counter question one another. Judge asks Niru if he wants to present some other proof or witness. Niru agrees. My witness will take some time to reach here. Judge gives him time till lunch.
