This is the first festival of Gayatri. Rana ji says he must give it by herself, but Raaj Mata says that gift price increases if it is given by a husband. If she gives it it will be precious but it will become priceless if gifted by Rana ji.Gayatri was in room when Rana ji gets her the jewerlry. She thanks him and opens the box, then smiles wearing the jewelry. Rana ji watches her wear it, then comes closer to her, holds her hand and helps her with the bracelet. He puts on other bracelet as well and holds her arm.

She smiles then takes her arm back. He smiles and leaves. She shows him some more jewelry. He smiles, turns to her. She moves towards the mirror. He goes to put on the necklace in her neck. She turns to face him, then goes to hold an anklet. Rana ji bends down and puts it on her foot. Rana ji asks for Gayatri’s hand in his and drags her closer to him. Both share an eye lock. Rana ji puts on a belt around her waist, holding her close to himself. They get closer when something breaks nearby. It was done by the veiled lady. Rana ji leaves Gayatri and goes out of the room.

In the way Gayatri was telling Rana ji about Navratri at her family house. Rana ji sat still. Gayatri says they also celebrate Raavan’s story, it gives us a lesson that a Raja must not be egoistic. Rana ji asks if he is egoistic. The car stops with a jerk, the driver tells Rana ji that there came a nail under the tyre. Rana ji says if he will drive this way, it had to happen. Gayatri scolds him too saying he must have cleaned the road along with driving. Rana ji asks the driver to go and asks Gayatri if she feels he is angry. Gayatri says he remains angry all the time.

They come out of the car, Gayatri says they can even reach the house on foot. Rana ji says they won’t go by foot. Gayatri says the she will count today how many times he gets angry. Rana ji says he is smiling. Gayatri says she hasn’t seen such a fake smile ever, and in her house even he will sit with anger on her nose. Rana ji says she must see he won’t be angry at all. The driver announces that the tyre has been changed. Rana ji says After you my queen. Gayatri gets angry that he called her name again in English. Rana ji asks who is being angry now. The veiled lady runs and gets into their car’s back.

Rana ji and Gayatri arrive at the house. Everyone at home welcome them. The lady in veil also come there. Maa takes Gayatri aside and asks if everything between her and Rana ji is good. Gayatri says yes, he has brought her by himself, everything has got fine between them. Shaam gives Rana ji a Dhoti and asks him to get ready. Rana ji says he is ready already. Shaam says it is a ritual here to wear Dhoti for Pooja. Rana ji picks the Dhoti, Gayatri asks if he has to say something. Rana ji smiles, no and goes inside. Maa takes Gayatri along.

Seth ji asks his wife to see if Rana ji needs something.Maa tells Rana ji that he can get ready in that room. He thanks her. Maa says she must thank him for accepting and understanding Gayatri, she was unaware of the trade between Seth ji and Raaj Mata. She is the daughter of a businessman but doesn’t know how to trade, she knows to take care of relations. She thanks him for saving Gayatri’s life. Rana ji holds her joined hands and says if a daughter has a mother like her, her life can’t be ruined. Gayatri comes with Bhabis. Rana ji thinks that he has done a lot of injustice to her, he knew the truth but wasn’t ready to listen. Now it won’t happen. Rana ji goes inside the room. Gayatri is worried what happened to him.

She takes a leave from Bhabis and goes to the room. She asks Rana ji to open the door, he does. Gayatri laughs watching him struggling with Dhoti. She asks if he didn’t know how to wear Dhoti, he denies. She asks how he wore it before. He says his servants did this. She laughs, and says he is getting angry now. He says he isn’t feeling anger. She smiles that he doesn’t know how to wear Dhoti. He says she is saying as if she knows how to put it on. She asks him for it, unwraps it from his body and puts it on in the right way. Bhabi watches this and laughs outside the door, Rana ji also smiles. Gayatri gives the shirt to Rana ji and asks him to wear it. He tells him to put it on as well, she keeps the shirt on his shoulder and leaves. He smiles.

All the men arrive for food. Rana ji waits for everyone to take seat. Seth ji says if he has a problem sitting on the floor they can arrange for chair. Rana ji says that a Raja can have a problem by this, a son in law can’t have. The ladies serve the food. Rana ji asks Gayatri to have food as well. Seth ji says that in their house, women eat after men. Rana ji says if this is a ritual, it must change. Gayatri gets worried and says one must not get angry for such a little thing. Rana ji says that he has taught his daughter to move forward in life. He says that he has seen the world and with his experienced he has learned one thing, the country in which women lag, the country itself lags. Seth ji says he has done really wrong, he tells all the ladies to join them.

Rana ji whispers at Gayatri if she disliked it.
Rana ji comes to the room where Gayatri was correcting books. He asks what she is doing. She says she is setting the books. He says the day has fallen, the night is here and everyone has gone to their rooms. She asks so? He says he has won the challenge, he didn’t feel angry all day, now what will he get as a gift. Gayatri says she specially mentioned it to him… he says he had to win anyway. Now what he will get. She asks what he wants. He locks Gayatri with a wall, Gayatri feels awkward. They get intimate. Rana ji watches Gayatri’s hand that he held, she gets worried at his stare. He thinks that this was Surakshna’s favorite bangle and remembers he had given it to Gayatri. He presses Gayatri’s hand tightly, then shuts his eyes and leaves the room.

Gayatri thinks that whenever he is coming closer to her, his past and love for Surakshna comes in front of him. Rana ji was at temple, he says that whenever he heads to move forward in life his past comes to his front. He prays for a way forward for himself. He shuts his eyes, he watches some lady standing at the window, the lady turns to be Surakshna. Surakshna smiles at Rana ji and says she is his real love. Rana ji opens his eyes, he prays that he only has questions and no answer, he asks for help. Gayatri prays that she gets answers to her questions in the room.

At Seth ji’s place next morning, Gayatri wakes up and goes downstairsl looking for Rana ji. Rana ji enters the house, she goes to scold him why he left like that, he was angry and just left without caring for her. Rana ji shuts her up by keeping a finger on her mouth, he puts the bangle in her saying she is his wife. Gayatri jerks her hand away saying she didn’t need a gift. Rana ji says he hasn’t given her a gift but all her rights and in return he wants to apologize, he didn’t understand her. He always compared her with Surakshna but he has known her price now, she is precious. Gayatri says that when she united with him, a stone turned to diamond. Rana ji says he doesn’t know how much time he will take to love her as Surakshna was his first love, but he will try. He can’t forget the memories, but can create memories together, Gayatri. Gayatri holds his arm back and says he can take his time, Gayatri will wait for him.

They both know what true love is. She hugs Rana ji, who hugs her back.The lady in veil comes to hand a bundle of money to a grinder, he says what she wants will happen.At the event, the elder Bhabi says that today Parvati Goddess pooja is done. Gayatri says Parvati is a symbol of strength, she is a symbol of truth and loyalty towards her husband. Maa says that she always stood with her husband Shiv to show him the right path. Bhabis say that today wives worn a Pagri to their husbands and there is a competition. Gayatri is reluctant but Rana ji agrees to go with everyone. On the stool, Gayatri is annoyed at Rana ji why he said yes for the competition, she doesn’t know how to put on a Pagri. She has never worn it herself.

Rana ji says she never wear a Dhoti as well, but she helped him with it well. Gayatri is angry, Rana ji bucks her up as she was rough with him. Rana ji laughs. Seth ji wins the competition, Gayatri was still struggling with the Pagri. Everyone leaves, while some children takes round and entraps Gayatri and Rana ji in the Pagri cloth. Rana ji holds Gayatri, both smiling at each other. The girls come to take Gayatri along them. Rana ji follows in the hall as Gayatri perform on a song. Bhabis watch her dance curtly. Rana ji shuts his eyes and watches Gayatri appearing from behind the curtain. Gayatri danced with him. The veiled lady was still in the crowd. Both save a candle from going out together.
Rana ji says to Gayatri that he had taken his vows at the time of their wedding.

He says that this isn’t a story in which those vows and promises will be left unfulfilled. Gayatri cheers. Rana ji takes a promise that this Karwachot will begin a new era in their lives, he will stay true to this promise Gayatri.The veiled lady watch the moon with a sieve in the forest. The grinder come and says that this will be Gayatri’s last Karwachot as she wished. The veiled lady burns the sieve with a candle.At the palace, Raaj Mata asks Kokilla to call Swarnlekha for aarti. Kokilla says Swarna was unwell and was missing her parents so they sent her home. Raaj Mata asks they did it without her permission. Kunwar ji says she is their daughter in law before, they took the decision for her.

Raaj Mata asks if they are saying that she doesn’t know about the absence of a member of their family. Kunwar ji says their daughter in law is no important person in her royal government. Kokilla stops the argument and says that they must celebrate it with unity. They complete the aarti.The next morning, Gayatri comes downstairs in palace. Raaj Mata apologizes Gayatri that she never kept a Karwachot and Swarna is also celebrating in her parent’s house so she forgot to get the Sargi ready. Gayatri says she had already asked the servant for it. They go to dining table and finds Rana ji preparing for Sargi. Gayatri is shocked.

Rana ji says to Gayatri that she might have forgotten to remind her mother in law, but he didn’t forget to ask about if from his mother in law. It is her first karwachot, he wants it to be the best. Kokilla envies Gayatri, Kunwar ji was curt. Gayatri says to Rana ji that she will eat by himself, he takes her order and takes the seat.Rana ji was in corridor, Gayatri comes there and asks to talk to him. He asks her to come inside the room. Gayatri was angry, she complains how anyone can touch her things in the palace, she never bear it in her parent’s house even.

Rana ji kneels down. Gayatri asks what he is doing. He says he is the culprit, she can give her any punishment. He says that he had made a promise with her, from today everything that is his is hers too. He shows her the decorated dressing table, and says this room will also be shared. Gayatri holds the stick from his hand and prevents it from standing, she says he has to get punished for not telling her before about it, so he must stay out of the room until she decorates it according to herself. Rana ji takes the order and goes out, Gayatri shuts the door but both smile at each other. Rana ji leaves. The veiled lady was standing there nearby.

Laksh opens the trunck, Swarna gets up. He says that he has got her meal, and shouts at her to eat. She denies. He says he had forgotten, how she can eat today as she is fasting for his long life today. He says she is so great, after so much she has remembered this day. He must first get her fast broken and goes to get water. He pours water in the glass when Swarna knocks his head with a stick. She cries and runs out of the room.Gayatri decorates the room, Rana ji knocks at the door and asks if he can come inside now. Gayatri calls him in and asks how their room looks. Rana ji says she has changed everything, where he will find his things. Gayatri says he has shared the room with her, she will get him whatever he wants, not from the room only but for anything in life.

She forbids him from sitting on the left side of the bed, she says that since childhood she can’t sleep until she watches moon from window. Rana ji says she just promised him anything in life, he wants to sit on the left side. Gayatri struggles with Rana ji, Rana ji drags her on the bed and says alright, she can watch the moon from window and he will only watch her. Gayatri leaves saying he can see the moon only when she has prayed the moon of Karwachot.Swarna was in the corridor afraid that if Kunwar ji or Kokilla watch her here, she won’t be able to run. She cries for help.

Raaj Mata was standing on the other side of corridor instructing her servants to set the henna and bangles, she doesn’t want anything less in Gayatri’s Karwachot. Swarna runs towards her, but Laksh drags her inside shutting her mouth. Raaj Mata wonders Swarna’s voice was this, but the servants say she is in her parent’s house. Raaj Mata says she must just be suspecting about it. Laksh ties and locks Swarna again in the trunk.Gayatri got the henna done, Kokilla chose the bangles. Gayatri asks for red, glass bangles. Kokilla says that Gayatri must have forgotten that she isn’t a daughter of a businessman but a Rani now.

Cheap bangles doesn’t suit a Rani. Gayatri says a wife doesn’t decorate herself with diamonds or expensive jewelry but the love her their husband. Raaj Mata and Rana ji also heard this. Raaj Mata says to Rana ji that she liked that Rana ji cared about Gayatri’s first Karwachot here. She wants him to give some gift to her as well, before moon sighting because that is a must for Karwachot.Gayatri sat in her room being irritated by her hair. Rana ji comes to sit beside her, she points at him and he tucks her hair behind her ear. He says there is another ritual in Karwachot, about giving a gift. What she wants now.

Gayatri says if she can fast for him, can’t he select a gift for her. She heads towards the wardrobe, he opens it and takes all the sarees out for her to choose. He says that before the moon sighting if she wants anything, he can get her in time. He gets Gayatri that she wants him to know about what is in her heart, then get this to her as well. She says yes. He calls her stubborn. She asks him to think about something, and poses not to car while smiling.
Gayatri set her thaal. Kokilla asks when will the moon sight. Rana ji gets her a laddoo and tells her to eat without telling anyone.

Gayatri says she has fast for his long life, it will be a sin to eat something between and leaves. She run through the corridor but Rana ji comes from the front and stops her way. He touches her cheek, she wonders something is there. He brings about rose for her. Gayatri takes them but throw them away angrily. He let go of some fireflies from his hand, she smiles with them but is angry with Rana ji again.Rana ji comes to her, he says that flowers wilt. He wanted to give her a feeling, it will remain with her always. He knocks Gayatri on the wall, holds her getting intimate with each other. The veiled lady watched this.
