Ashish is at children’s NGO. He gets Hasmukh’s call. Hasmukh says I need to talk something imp, Dayaben called me at office and asked me to explain you, if you fall this time, she will not save you. Ashish asks what did you say. Hasmukh says I said I will try, problem increased after engagement with Neela, Dayaben will not accept Asha and Avni, what did you decide. Ashish says nothing, I can’t forget my daughter. Hasmukh asks him to think well. Ashish asks what would you be if you were in my place. Hasmukh says I would have settled Asha and Avni somewhere and return home.
Ashish says it means you could not understand my problem, thanks. Hasmukh tries to explain, and Diksha hears him. Ashish ends call. Diksha doubts on him and questions. He jokes. He asks her not to doubt and convinces her.
Ashish calls Asha. Neela sees Ashish. Asha gets down the taxi and answers his call. He says sorry, I could not read your message on time, is everything fine. Neela says you here, its my lucky day. He asks Asha to wait. He gives cheque to Neela for her NGO and says I will go. Neela asks him to come, and takes him. Ashish says I have ongoing call, wait. He tells Asha that he will call later and ends call. Asha gets thinking. Ali’s mom keeps notes and asks Asha to pay the taxi fare. Asha pays the fare. Ali’s mom says principal madam Shri knows me well, I come here often, don’t worry, they call parents and tell about the kid. Asha does not write her surname in register and goes.
Neela asks Ashish to write her name as Neela Parekh Mehta next time. He says thanks, I will go now. She asks him to sit, how is he going like this. She asks him are you happy with this relation. He asks which relation. She says our relation. He recalls Dayaben’s words. He says I m happy. She asks sure. He says yes, why do you feel so. She says don’t know, because I m stupid. She asks him to come on lunch, think what to eat, don’t stress me out.
Ali says I m hungry, sorry. Ali’s mom scolds him. Asha asks Avni what happened. Asha and Avni are called by principal mam. Shri says Avni is a bright girl, but the thing she wrote on notebook. She shows notebook to Asha. Shri says the problem is why she wrote this, what happened. Asha recalls Avni’s anger on Ashish. Shri asks why is Avni annoyed with her Papa, where is he, I would like to have a word with you, I asked Avni’s all teachers, he did not attend any PTM, no one has seen him till now, what is the reason. Asha gets tensed and says its not like that, he stays busy in work. Shri asks so what, every parent is busy in work. Asha says he is not in city. Avni cries seeing Asha lying. Shri asks since 5 years?
Asha says he could not come on sports day, he was busy, he is in sales job, he has to go to other cities, so he stays outside city often. Avni reads the phrase there, you tell a lie a thousand times, but truth only once. Asha worries. Shri stops Asha. Avni repeats the lines again and again. Avni shouts. Shri asks Avni what’s the matter. Avni says tell her to tell the truth, ask her not to say lie. Avni asks Asha to say truth. She cries and goes.
starts with principal Shireen talking to Asha. She asks Asha to focus on Avni. She says I don’t want to interfere in your personal matters, but….. She sees Asha tensed and gives her a glass of water. She talks about Avni and asks what does she do when she gets angry. Asha says she does not talk to me in anger, I leave her alone till her anger calms down. Shireen shows the duck and asks do you know her behaviour, when ducks swim, they look calm and beautiful, but seeing under water, they move legs fast, kids are such, they look happy and they have questions inside, they need answers, Avni has a storm inside and wants to know truth, my advice is that you say truth to her, sometimes kids take extreme steps.
Asha asks extreme step? Shireen says if they don’t get answers, the storm
surrounds them, its my responsibility to show you truth, Avni is bright girl, the issues between you and your husband is affecting Avni’s mind, Avni is showing Duck’s syndrome, the problem is more serious than its seem, ask your husband to spend time with Avni, take care of her before it gets too late. Asha goes out and asks about Avni. Ali says she has run away. Asha asks others for Avni.
Ali’s mom Shazia beats Ali. Shireen asks him to change Ali by love. Shireen asks her not to beat Ali, I will do your complaint. Shazia says I will not beat him. Dayaben takes care of Hemant. A Muslim man comes and Dayaben turns away. Hemant sends his bags by the man.
Hemant asks Dayaben to leave it. She asks him to change driver, keep someone else, we can’t trust him. He asks her to change her mindset, whats the problem in this driver. She says I will find a good driver. He says don’t force your mentality on me, come sit, forget everything, whatever happened with you, you have sitting with hatred, what did you get, fresh wounds just hurt, let wounds heal. She says body wounds heal, not hearts. He tries to explain her and says you filled hatred in your heart. She does not listen. He says you will never agree, leave it.
Ashish is leaving and talks to Neela. A lady tells Neela about the girl who locked herself. Neela tells Ashish that the kids try to do suicide, such kids who are illegitimate, Anji faced the same thing, a foreigner man made her mum pregnant and fled, her mum lied that her dad will come, but he never came. Ashish gets worried.
Neela asks Anji to open the door. Ashish tries to talk to Anji. He says even my heart broke, I feel I don’t deserve anyone’s love, no one heard me when I tried, our love has power, you help me in healing this wound. Neela cries and asks Anji to agree to her. Ashish says Anji, I need you, please help me once, make my pain less. He says sorry, I m leaving, talk to me once. He sees Avni in Anji and hugs her. Neela holds Ashish. He then sees Anji. He holds her hand and wipes her tears. Neela hugs Anji and asks are you fine, don’t do this again, tell me if there is anything.
Neela asks Ashish how did you do all this. He says it was my script dialogue. She says it was not in any of your movie. He says its not released yet. She says I should watch it then, I m so proud if you. She hugs him.
Sumi talks to Ashok. He asks if Ashish is a good father, why did he not come on sports day. She says Asha got hurt by your words. He says I said what is right, Asha believed a lie to be truth, she wants Avni to live that lie, Avni wants to know truth, how can you snatch the rights, the truth is Ashish will never accept Asha and Avni, Avni will be called illegitimate always, truth is she is illegitimate. Avni hears this and gets shocked.
