My Identity 31 July 2021: The Episode starts with KK asking Kamini about child trafficking. He asks how can you stoop so low to trap Avni. Saisha also gets angry. Kamini says Avni filled poison in my life, I was just returning the favor, I m out of jail now and will not leave her. KK says I m ashamed to call you my mum, I just hope Lord gives you sense. Its morning, Mowgli gives flowers and wakes up Avni. Saisha says surprise, here is the coffee and sandwich for you. Avni smiles.
Mowgli says you were sad so you left alone, we planned this surprise by getting Saisha here, so that you feel happy. Avni asks Saisha to have food, she will make her fav pulao. Saisha gets sad. Avni asks what happened.Saisha says Kamini is out of jail, she will try to harm you. Avni says let her try, I won’t let her succeed, don’t worry, have food, I will drop you home, I have to prepare for hearing also. She gives her laddoos and says this will make you more stronger. Kamini calls her out and asks her to take care of herself too.
She says I will ruin you, you are brave to come my home. Avni says you will not understand, you have stained your own family by child trafficking crime, how do you get sleep at night, I mean don’t you hate yourself. Kamini says I don’t get sleep since you and Saisha snatched my son, I will snatch everything from you. Avni says fine, do anything, but nothing should happen to my loved ones, else I won’t forgive and forget. Kamini says fine, take care, else anything bad can happen.
She goes. Avni asks Saisha not to worry. She leaves.Mitali comes home and switches on lights. She gets surprised seeing the decorations. She sees Neil. She asks what’s this, its final hearing tomorrow. He says yes, but the night is just for you, I will never disappoint you. He shows a box and keeps her phone. He says after our marriage, we won’t have any distractions. He gives keys and says I will have clothes of your choice, have this cupboard keys.
He shows scrap book and says we will go to any destination of your choice every year, I will celebrate your success, your friends will envy you. He gets the photo frame and says its a perfect frame for our family. Mitali says thanks Neil and hugs. Its morning, everyone comes to the court for final hearing. Judge asks the lawyers to keep their opinions. Neil’s lawyer says I would like to ask some routine questions to Avni. Avni comes in the witness box.
Avni says I m sorry that I couldn’t answer the lawyer yesterday, I had broken down, I fell weak, but I can’t hide from his questions, the society questions everyone and blames without any thought. She recalls Aisha. She says I have asked my mum, who am I…. Naamkarann happens at the time of birth, that name becomes your identity, but I had to make my own identity, I had to rechristen myself, I m Avni Aisha, not Avni Ashish Mehta, my mum and I were not my dad’s socially accepted family, I will be known as an illegitimate, society will hate me always, even if I go to donate blood to someone, maybe I will be denied, I didn’t get father’s love in childhood, I used to cry for my dad’s love and time, as it was my right, father is like a roof for children, I didn’t had it, I didn’t get my dad’s love, but I got two mums, they filled his place, lawyer taunted my mum, she was a noble person, who raised me single handedly, then Neela came in my life, she taught me to live life well, Aisha didn’t need Ashish to give me a good upbringing, and Neela didn’t wish to stay with her husband Ashish, they both didn’t need any name to raise me, they made me understand the need of a name in the society, I m illegitimate, it doesn’t mean anyone can raise a question on my character, I also know to love and protect my family, is name a big thing, is it over deeds, I have made my place on my own, I don’t need any stamp, I have been moving on in life, I m capable to give a good life to my son, I know my strengths, I want to appeal to the court, I want my son Mowgli’s custody.
Neil and his family listen to her. Judge asks Avni to go and sit in her place. He asks Neil or his lawyer to say anything if they want. Neil’s lawyer says I want Mowgli’s grandparents’ testimony. Bebe comes in witness box. She says what shall I say, both Neil and Avni are my children, we always loved Avni and she also reciprocated, she knows to return double love, I know this well that both of them love Mowgli a lot, I can’t choose one of them, sorry. Shweta comes next.
She says I just know Neil is bearing this punishment since ten years, he is living away from his son, I just want to see him happy, his happiness is in Mowgli, and even Mowgli will get a family, Avni will always have a place in our heart and house, she can visit us any time, if Mowgli stays with us, he will get a family, I feel our house is the best place for his upbringing, so he should stay with us.Prakash saying sorry, I don’t want to express my point of view in this case.
Neil’s lawyer says truth is Avni can’t get that financial stability that’s imp for Mowgli’s custody, if you see Neil and Avni’s economic status, you will know Neil can give good life to Mowgli, Neil is going to marry Mitali, she is a police officer, she can give a good direction to Mowgli’s life. Judge says court will give the verdict after lunch break. Samrat says if Avni loses case, we will lose Mowgli. The kids talk. Mowgli says I don’t want to go anywhere, I want to stay here with you all. They all hug.
Prakash comes to Avni. Prakash says you need courage to say truth to the world, the best decision would be that Mowgli stays with you. She says you are supporting me, thanks, I know how difficult it is for you. He says I love Neil a lot, I know he is much wrong this time, he will realize his mistake, I m worried that it will be too late. The judge says court agrees that Mowgli’s parents can take care of him well, court appreciates Avni, but the decision will be for Mowgli’s betterment, court decides that Mowgli’s custody will be given to Neil, Avni is allowed to meet her son once a week, the court is adjourned.
Avni cries. Her lawyer apologizes. Neil cries seeing Avni. Shweta stops him and says no, if you speak to Avni, she won’t be able to manage herself.Avni’s lawyer says I will find details and tell you. Avni is at Aisha’s grave. She thinks of Mowgli and cries. She says whatever happens, I can’t lose him, he is a part of me, my sorrows vanish on seeing him. She cries on her fate. She says I got defeated. Avni comes home. Sunehri comes to her.
Avni cries seeing Mowgli’s toys. She says we have to pack Mowgli’s bag. Mitali and Neil decorate room. Neil says I didn’t realize, I didn’t ask you, whether you are ready to manage a nine year old kid. Mitali says I m happy, I will try my best that he doesn’t miss his mum, we will spread toys on bed, Mowgli will like it. Prakash comes. He says Mowgli doesn’t need toys or decorations, I hope you understand this. Mowgli asks Avni why is she sad, dad and she are fighting for him right.
He says I will be with you, I love you much. She says just understand what I say, you will stay with your dad, he loves you a lot. He says I will stay with you, tell Neil not to come here. He hugs her and says I want to stay here.She says Neil will love you, he will play with you, the court has ended the fight. He says I can’t stay with my friends. She says I will get them to meet you. She hugs him and cries. She asks would you like to have icecream with me. She goes out and cries. She says we will have entire cup today.
He says I will catch cold then, I will have to stay with you, I can’t be with you. She hugs him and asks him to have some. He feeds her. Its morning, Neil comes there with his lawyer. Mowgli hides behind Avni. Avni says I have packed his belongings, only one bag is remaining. Everyone hugs Mowgli. He says I will come to meet you all. Avni hugs Mowgli. She asks him to behave well, else everyone will say his mumma didn’t teach him manners. He nods. They hug. Neil looks on.
