Love or Poison 18 May 2021: Viraj holds Sitara’s hand. Why don’t I see the same thing in Nethra’s eyes that I see in your eyes? Why is it happening? A lady knocks at the door thereby breaking their eye lock. Sitara goes to meet Rani Sa. Viraj thinks he is so comfortable with Sitara. Why don’t I feel this way with Nethra?Nethra / Chabeeli is seated for the haldi ceremony. Yamini looks at her suspiciously. Nethra / Chabeeli smiles back at her awkwardly making her wonder what has happened to Nethra. Nethra’s mother applies haldi to Nethra / Chabeeli. All the other ladies follow suit. Nethra / Chabeeli smiles at Sitara. Sitara finds her behaviour strange. She has never spoken to me this nicely before. She does not even like me. What has happened to her lately? She recalls Rajguru’s words and wonders if the soul of one of the Vishkanya’s got inside Nethra.
A lady asks Rani Sa to help Nethra. Sitara promptly offers to do it. She takes Nethra / Chabeeli with her to help her wipe the haldi off her body. Chabeeli holds herself back from blessing Sitara. Sitara is looking for some mark on Nethra’s body to find the clue that Rajguru has told her about.Surili wonders what Chabeeli is doing. How can she act so foolish? Albeli says Sitara is right now under Rajguru’s spell. What if she sees the mark of earth element on Nethra’s body?Sitara is cleaning the haldi off Nethra’s body when she finds a mark on her back.Vrinda tries to hide / wipe the mark from Chabeeli’s unconscious body. They all join their energies and start chanting loudly. The mark suddenly disappears from Nethra’s body. Sitara wonders why she felt as if something was there?Vrinda pats at Chabeeli’s body.
We must be extremely careful. Our one mistake can ruin everything! Neither the royal family nor Sitara should know that your soul is inside Nethra.Viraj’s haldi is also done. He begins to go to his room when Samrat offers to help him bathe. Aryan teases him too. Ratan cutely advises them against it. Viraj is elder than you. Be careful. They tease Viraj a little and then leave him alone. Viraj comes to his room. A fly distracts him and gets in his eye. His vision gets blurred. He collides with the table when Sitara holds him. His haldi gets smeared on her face too. She offers to help him clean his face. She take him to the bathroom but slips on the wet floor. She lands right in his arms and mistakenly switches on the shower tap. The get drenched together. She tries to go but he does not let her go. He caresses her face and they lean closer (for a kiss). She recalls how he had kissed Nethra in the past and steps back. She runs from there.
How can I fall so weak in front of Viraj? This is wrong! Viraj looks on.Albeli says Chabeeli has gathered many elements with which we can open the doors. Vrinda compliments Chabeeli on her work. Now you have to bring something from Ratan’s room.Nethra / Chabeeli enters in Ratan’s room and starts looking for the shell. Someone is peeking at her from the window. Nethra / Chabeeli picks the shell kept in the bowl. She hides seeing a servant pass from there. Vrinda instructs her to steal the second thing from that room. Nethra / Chabeeli steals a pearl necklace and a gem from one of the cupboards. Someone is keeping a tab on Nethra / Chabeeli all along. She begins to go when she notices Rani Sa coming upstairs. She hides next to the door. Rani Sa enters and receives a call. Chabeeli manages to get out stealthily from the room.
Vrinda is happy thinking that no one can stop them from getting out of here once Chabeeli comes here with all these elements.Chabeeli returns to the place above Vishloka and passes on the stolen things to Vrinda. Vrinda remarks that the last thing that they need is Gyanendra’s blood.Chabeeli smiles thinking no one will be able to hold them captive once she gets hold of Rajguru’s blood. Someone is keeping an eye on Nethra / Chabeeli.Yamini asks Nethra / Chabeeli where she is coming from. Come clear with it or I will tell everyone that you were stealing! She holds her hand while saying so. You proved that low people think lowly only. You bring them in a palace but cheap people like you don’t get over your cheapness ever! I am making plans to make you the Maharani of this palace but you are stuck with your small plans. Nethra’s eyes turn blue. Yamini asks her what new trick she has learnt. I can see that you are turning weirder. Answer me! Nethra / Chabeeli lifts her hands and her nails grow right in front of Yamini’s eyes.
She slits Yamini’s throat using her nails in one go shocking Yamini. Nethra / Chabeeli says I told you not to mess with me. Now bear the consequence! She pushes Yamini down the stairs. Her husband sees her thus and rushes to her side. Nethra / Chabeeli hides just in time. Samrat’s father shouts out to everyone.Everyone is gathered outside Yamini’s room. I don’t know how Yamini got hurt. There was no one near the stairs when I caught hold of her. Samrat vows to kill whoever has done it. Viraj tells him to relax. Rajguru wonders if the culprit is the woman in whom Chabeeli has entered.Nurse allows the family members to meet Yamini. Doc tells them that she is out of danger as the wound was not deep but she wont be able to speak for a while due to shock. It will take time. Samrat gets emotional. Yamini’s husband asks Yamini how it happened.
Yamini starts breathing heavily recalling the incident. Doc advises her to stay calm so she can recover soon. Doc leaves. Ratan vows to punish the culprit once he finds him. He asks Yamini about it. She is having trouble but keeps trying. Rajguru asks her to write the name of the culprit on a paper as she is not in a condition to talk. Sitara and Nethra / Chabeeli are looking at her from far. Yamini decides to tell Nethra’s name as she isn’t around. She takes the pen and starts writing. She write N in hindi when Nethra / Chabeeli shakes the door
a little to catch Yamini’s attention. Yamini drops the pen out of fear. Sitara follows Yamini’s gaze. Rani Sa asks Yamini to share the name. We will punish the culprit. Sitara wonders why Yamini looks so freaked out after seeing Nethra. Nurse sends everyone outside as Yamini looks tensed. Once everyone leaves, Nethra leans closer to Yamini. I could have killed you in one go if I wanted to but I spared you. Don’t dare to tell anyone about me or I wont leave you fit enough to utter anything in future . She acts nicely in front of the nurse. Sitara sits lost in thoughts as she makes tea for Viraj. Why did Yamini seem afraid of Nethra? Did Nethra hurt her? Viraj notices the cup overflowing and warns her.
She apologizes to him while avoiding looking him in the eye. She sits down to make another cup of tea for him. Your sherwani is kept on the bed. Baba says that after this ritual the bride and groom are joined in an unbreakable bond. The same is going to happen with you and Nethra. They look at each other for a moment before she looks away. She holds out the cup for him. He stares at her blankly and does not hold it well. The cup falls down and breaks in pieces. Viraj advises Sitara against collecting them but she does not pay heed. She ends up hurting herself. He is about to suck the blood off her finger when Rajguru advises him against it. He holds himself back from spilling the truth. He sends Viraj to get ready and tells that he will get Sitara treated. Once Viraj leaves, Rajguru advises Sitara to remember the limits to be maintained between a prince and a servant. She nods sadly. Rajguru was about to mention the word Vishkanya but holds himself back. He leaves from there.
Vrinda and her sisters are anxiously waiting for the last element – Rajguru’s blood. Once we find it we will be able to get out of here very easily. Surili is pensive but Vrinda is positive that Chabeeli will make it happen at any cost.Viraj looks at Sitara during the ritual but she looks away. Chabeeli looks at Rajguru. I cannot go back to Vishloka without his blood. How will it be possible? She notices him standing under a chandelier and gets an idea. Pundit ji gives holy thread to Rani Sa and Nethra’s mother to tie on their kids’ hands. It will unify the relation. Sitara looks on sadly as it happens. Chabeeli has to look away from the chandelier in order to touch everyone’s feet. While taking Ratan’s blessings, her eyes turn blue. Sitara looks at her curiously. Am I right about the fact that Vishkanya’s soul is inside Nethra only? Chabeeli looks at the chandelier which falls over Rajguru’s head in the very next seconds. Rajguru lets out a scream. Everyone rushes to his side. Nethra / Chabeeli keeps a piece of cloth over his wound to stop the bleeding. Ratan wonders aloud as to how the chandelier fell down. Sitara is confused as well. Am I right? I saw Nethra staring at the chandelier and that is when it fell. I have to talk to Yamini now to clear my confusion.
Nethra / Chabeeli leaves from there with the bloodied kerchief. Sitara thinks to meet Yamini asap to find out the truth.Everyone takes Rajguru to his room. Sitara rushes to Yamini’s room and sends the nurse on a break. She proposes to take everyone’s name one by one to know if the culprit is from the royal family. You can nod your head to tell me who it was. Yamini’s eyes widen hearing Nethra’s name.Chabeeli collects Rajguru’s blood in a small bottle. Vrinda and her sisters smile. Vrinda hopes that no one should now cast an evil eye at their happiness.
No one can stop us from gaining our freedom now!Sitara asks Yamini to tell her if it was Nethra who attacked her. Yamini was about to nod her head when she notices Nethra passing from there in the window. She shakes her head in negative. Sitara thinks it means I was wrong. Who else could it be then? Chabeeli understands that Sitara doubts her now. I will have to send the 7th element to Vishloka before I get in any trouble.
Surili asks Vrinda why she isn’t telling the truth to Sitara. She is currently acting as Rajguru’s shield and is creating trouble for us. Vrinda says truth is always told at the right time or it loses its significance. We will tell her on this special Purnima and that is when it will be most effective. We will show her the proof and share our backgrounds. I am sure she will believe it then. If we try to tell her anything today then Kuldeep and Gyanendra will turn it into a lie. I want her to be with us asap but we must wait for the right time. We will tell her everything at the right time. We must wait till then.Sitara covers Yamini with the duvet. Nethra might not have attacked Yamini but something is going on in her mind. I dint imagine anything outside. Something is indeed strange about Nethra. I have to find out about it.
