Married Again 15 July 2022: Arti takes the kid her lap and slaps ishita, who is at a loss for an answer. Everyone asks ishita where ayu was being taken. She says that she was in fact bringing him to arti. She says that she couldnt see arti’s sadness, and hence she got the baby for arti to see, and concocts up a story. She asks akash to tell arti of her noble intentions. Arti talks to the baby, saying that she wouldnt leave him now. Akaash reprimands her for her foolishness, and says that had something happened to ayu, he would have and almost raises his hand, but is stopped by yash. Arti says that she wont let ayu be in the incubator. Yash consoles her that he would immediately talk about the same and takes her to her ward along with ayu. He casts a fleeting glance back at ishita before turning his head away.
Ishita wonders if yash has started doubting her, and thinks that if that happens, then her game is over, and she cant let that happen at any cost, and would have to win back his trust.Radha asks arti and ayu to relax. She helps arti seat along with the baby, while others looks on happily. Seeing their tensed face, she asks whats wrong, but arti assures her that everything was alright, and skips the incubator story. Radha says that atleast now arti would be able to rest easily. The kids marvel at how small and soft their brother is. Yash thinks about ishita’s justification. Yash excuses himself from the family and leaves.
yash confronts ishita that he didnt say anything in front of arti, but akash was exactly right in reprimanding her for her doing. yash asks whats in her mind, and what does she want. Her eyes fill up with crocodile tears, and yash apologizes but sternly also tells her that what she did was very wrong, and she shouldnt repeat that mistake ever again. Ishita agrees. He takes out a handkerchief, while ishita thinks that this is a symbol of the fact that yash’s heart has melted seeing her tears. But he goes to akash and asks him not to be angry at ishita, and asks him to make up with her. He asks her not to cry, and then asks her the reason for it, and then says that he understood it, even if noone else does. He says that he knows that she would be a very good mother, and that he would support her in this dream of hers. He asks her to smile and goes off. Ishita is very frustrated with the latest turn of events. She takes the hankey and crushes it under her feet.
The nurse tells the family that only one person can stay for the night with the patient. Arti signals, much to others’ amusement, yash to stay back. Pankaj and prateik suggest radha’s name for her maturity and experience in handling such things. But yash and arti, both convince that radha is very tired and should rest. But his brothers tell that radha indeed should stay back, for any kind of problems in the night, as the kids are also habituated to sleeping with their own parents. Arti says that the kids are very comfortable with radha, and they wont bother her. Radha too insists that she needs to be with arti, more than anything else. She asks yash to go. the brothers take fun in yash and arti’s predicament. They take yash out, but he makes an excuse of some things remaining behind, and goes by arti’s bedside. Radha asks what is he searching for. She makes up an excuse and leaves. yash gives her the message needed, hurriedly, and leaves when his bothers holler out for him and he kisses her hand and hurries out. She smiles in glee.
Later in the night, radha asks arti not to miss yash so badly, as arti seems so lost, and says that she understands the love between them, and wishes that noone should cast an evil eye on their relationship, and their love stays eternal.
Location: Yash’s residence
Yash hits prateik and is angry at both prateik and pankja, for seperating arti from him tonight, while they tease him wholeheartedly. Ishita thinks that tonight yash would be all alone for her, and this would be the best time to get close to him.While yash is undressing, ishita watches him from hiding, and revels in the sight. She thinks that tonight she wont be abel to wait any longer, to make yash his. Ishita goes to his room, with food, and is about to knock, but then stops. She thinks that it would be good if yash opens it, as then with every step that they take, distances between them would vanish. She knocks on the door, and looks on expectantly. as the door opens, and she steps in, she is stunned to find a picture of arti, and ansh telling and his sisters, hogging on the food, while yash is busy reading something. Ishita is frustrated to see her plan failing.
The kids asks her to feed. But on yash’s insistence not to trouble ishita, they start eating themsleves, and ishita comes to yash. She says that this isnt a trouble, as the kids would miss their mom. She asks him to eat, but he says that he isnt hungry. She says, coming loser to him, that if he tastes the food, he might feel the hunger. But before she can come in any closer, the kids barge in and say that there’s no taste at all in the food, and not at all like arti, who gives them delicious food. While ishita is frustratewd with the kids, interfering in her plan, yash asks the kids not to talk like this. She thinks that soon, this problem of the kids would be over as they doze off to sleep. But she is surprised when she hears the kids making plans with yash, to stay up all night and play, as arti isnt there to check on them. Ishita says that they should let yash sleep as he’s tired, and then arti would feel bad if she knows that they were up late. she takes the kids to put them to sleep in their room.
Looking at yash, ishita smirks at her planning. While boiling milk, ishita thinks that another eye has been cast, as she now is in love with yash. She thinks that tonight yash and arti’s love story would be over, and he wouldnt know how indiscreetly a new story, and a new love seeps in his life, and the old one vanishes away.
ishita concocts an evil plan about how to get yash into her trap, and mixessomething in the milk, thinking that once yash loses sanity and becomes her, then he would forever be hers, and it would be a new day for him, and her, and arti and the whole family. she takes the milk to his room, and finds the covers drawn, thinking that it seems that the kids have once again come to sleep with yash, but she is determined to make yash hers tonight. She places the milk by the stand, and calls out to him, Yash. When he doesnt respond, she takes over the covers, and finds the kids awake. She asks them where’s yash. They tell her a top secret. The kids tell her that yash hs gone to the hospital to give a goodnight kiss to arti, as he wont be able to sleep otherwise. They say that they want to sleep and draw the covers again. She breaks the glass of milk, at which the kids ask her to leave so that they can sleep. ishita is frustrated.
Ishita frustratedly throws things around in the kitchen, which wakes up buaji, who comes out to find ishita, and asks why is she in such a tantrum. Ishita doesnt want to talk, but buaji reprimands her for wasting the things that arent hers. As buaji turns around, she breaks a few more. Buaji asks ishita not to test her patience, as she would have to face the consequence otherwise and leaves. Ishita thinks that she would find it very difficult not to kill buaji first, before making yash hers. She is very irritated at her plans failing.
Location: In the hospital
As a person draped in doctor’s masks picks up ayu, arti comes upto him from behind, and facing him, is puzzled about the man, and asks who is he? He keeps a hand on his face, to stop her from screaming and then taks off his mask to reveal himself. Arti is surprised to see yash standing before him. He comes close to her, and she keeps drawing away. they get into their romance again. Arti keeps drawing away teasingly, whenever yash keeps coming to her. They both caress the baby, while yash trying to be intimate with her. Finally arti releases herself from his grip and runs off. Yash keeps searching for her, and finally finds her at the bedside, of the cushion where radha is sleeping. She dares yash to come now. Finally yash too accepts the challenge, and is about to trip, and wake up radha, much to arti’s horror, but manages himself in time. Arti goes of f to sleep, on her bed, pulling the covers on her. As he comes close to him, she again keeps toying with him. They finally get into an embrace, and together marvel at the baby.
The whole family is excited to hear yash’s car honk, announcing their arrival. Radha asks yash to wait, while they do the proper ritual, before they enter the house, along with ayu, who would further strengthen the bond. She asks ishita to get the arti thali, but prateik gives it to her, having prepared it already. Radha does the ritual, and asks them to step in. Vedika asks what is radha doing. Buaji tells her that this is to proteact the couple and the baby, from any kind of trouble.
Ishita says that the trouble has now started, as this isnt a hospital, where someone can stop her, and no amount of rituals can save arti from it. She thinks that due to the baby, yash couldnt be hers last night. Hence she would take the baby out of the picture, so that for arti, its forvere darkness, whereas her life lits up with yash’s company. she resolves to do this tonight only.Yash takes arti and the baby to the room. Arti is very happy to see how nicely yash has decorated the room, for her and the baby. Arti explains her doubts on whether ayu would be able to adjust along with them on the bed, and if that space would be enough for him. Yash again gets into a teasing mode, where she says that arti has grown fat. When arti comes to hit him, he sits by ayu, on the bed, and asks her not to misbehave in front of the kid. Arti is very angry at her being teased.
But yash gets into a joke and pleases her. Yash says that the best phase of a woman’s life is motherhood, and that she should cherish and enjoy every minute of it, as she’s lucky enough to experience it, unlike other unfortunate ones. Pari, standing on their doors, hears this.Pari is crying in her room, when prateik who has just entered sees her like that, and asks her whats the matter. Pari, after not wanting to talk insistently, breaks down in front of prateik, when he makes her swear on him, saying that she has hidden this truth from the family, saying that they dont want to take this responsibility of a child, but it is in fact the truth that she can never be a mother. Pratiek consoles her saying that everything would be alright soon.
Buaji, who overhears this, thinks that they hid such a big truth from the family, and that one of the daughter in laws in infertile, when everyone is in the hope of playing with prateik’s child, and pari cant give them that happiness and God knows how would the family react, when they find this out.Pari thinks that there must be some way out, in a world where science has developed so much. Prateik tells her that sopon everything would be alright and find a way out. He asks her not to talk about this, as anyone might hear it, and get sad in this time of happiness. She says that he has always preferred his family over her, and has he ever wondered how she feels seeing others become mothers. He asks her not think like that, and enjoy the occassion right now. Buaji hears all this.
All are getting busy for the celebration and its arrangements. Arti asks her not to waste, and instead spend this money to the poor and the orphans. Radha says that they would do the both, as they want to celebrate this happy moment too. Vedika asks where is ayu. Arti says that he’s in her room. radha asks her to be with ayu, as he’s very small, and needs constant care. Arti leaves.Meanwhile ishita approaches the bay, in arti’s room. Looking at the child, ishita thinks that due to him, yash couldnt be hers last night, and he would forever be a barrier in her plans. She says that arti already has completely won over yash. she thinks that hence, he would have to get out of her way. She takes the baby in her arms, and tunrs around to leave, but is surprised to find her face to face with arti, and she becomes speechless.
she remembers arti’s slap. Arti again looks at him suspiciously. She asks ishita to stay away from Ishita tries to make an excuse, but arti says that she doesnt want to listen to her lies, as she doesnt know what her intentions are with the baby.Radha asks her not to get angry like this, and asks her to compose herself. She tells ishita that its good that she came to look out for the baby, but it would have been better if she had told arti. She asks ishita to come along, telling arti that she should rest, while they make arrangements. As she turns around, ishita thinks that when, in the evening, when everyone’s busy with the preparations, she would fulfill her plan. She thinks that she cant see arti in her yash’s arms anymore. she is about to slip, when she is caught by yash, seeing which arti is at discomfort and she smiles in jest. ishita composes herself and leaves.
In her room, ishita is frustrated, thinking about arti’s smirk and decides to take her revenge on her. she feels where yash touched her to catch her. She desperately waits for the evening, when her plan would succeed.All are hurrying through preparations, looking around to radha for help. While the band lady asks for an advance, for the show in the evening, ishita sees her, and radha going to get the money for her. Ishita thinks that such a business woman can be put to her use. she approaches her, and says that what radha is giving her, she would give way more than that, if she agrees to do her job, neglecting everyone else’s. This tempts her and she says yes. Ishita tells her the plan.
Yash is ready, and checks on arti, who’s getting ready. He comes to her, and looks at her. Arti asks if she isnt looking alright. Yash replies in negative. Arti asks him what is it. Yash tells her that she’s perfect, and looking very beautiful like a fairy. Arti smiles up, as he starts teasing her. He asks her to look in the mirror, and see that she looks like a college girl. she proudly says that she’s a happy wife and mother to 4 of his children. They get into nonsensical banter, while yash reminds that she should also say that she cant live without her husband, just like she said that she cant live with the children. Aryi says that she would have to think about it before having said it. As radha calls out to them, yash says that he was to call her only, but forgot it in her beauty. Finally arti releases herself from yash’s grip, and goes down when she hears herself being called for.
The ritual begins with the priest enchanting, and making the family perform the needful. the family come sone by one to bless the child. yash, pankaj, vidhi, prateik come one by one to bless ayu. As pari goes to bless the child, she is stopped by buaji. pari asks why is she stopping her. Buaji says that she cant participate in the ritual, as she doesnt think that her blessings would be fruitful to the baby in any way, as she doesnt want yash’s son to be cursed instead of being blessed. Vidhi too asks what is she talking about. Yash sends the kids to play. Arti says that she doesnt know what problem buaji has, but she wants everyone to bless her child. Buaji asks her not to argue unnecessarily and understand that if she is saying anything, then there must be a reason behind it. yash too asks why cant pari participate in this ritual, buaji blurts out that pari is infertile, shocking pari and everyone else in the family. pari looks helplessly at a helpless prateik. Radha disbelieves her, but buaji asks them to ask pari and prateik. she says that they dont even need to ask, as their faces tell everything.
Arti asks prateik and pari, but when they dont answer, she says that their silence speaks for itself, conforming buaji’s statement. she refues to believe it. Vidhi asks pari why did she hide such a big truth from them.she asks why couldnt she confide in them. Buaji says that pari doesnt deserve to be talked like this, when she cant respect relations, being modern, and hiding things from the family.Buaji reprimands pari for being ultra modern, and not wanting to sire a child, under the influence of western culture. Pari looks at buaji with hurt in her eyes.
