Once there was a king update Thursday 24 February 2022

Once there was a king 24 February 2022: The servant with the food had vanished. Gayatri wonders where he went and looks around. Rana ji comes there, he asks Savitri what she is doing here in this portion. She says she came to look for something. Rana ji asks what was she looking for? Savitri had no answer. Rajeshwari comes there, she says to Rana ji he never bears someone’s misbehavior and she has swore upon misbehaving with him only. She tells Rana ji to throw her out of the palace. Rana ji tells her to get out of the palace. Savitri asks where she will go if out of the palace, she joins hands and asks him to give her any punishment he wants to. She holds his feet saying she will die here else, she will do whatever he will ask for. Rana ji smiles and asks her to get up.

He asks if she is able to bear any punishment, she can do anything to stay in this palace. He removes the cloth from a trunk, and tells her to take this trunk out of the palace alone and bare footed. Rajeshwari says two muscled men can’t hold this trunk, how she will do it alone. Rana ji says she won’t be able to do this, so she must leave the palace. Gayatri looks into his eyes, Rana ji and Rajeshwari leave.In the room, Swarna asks Lakhan why he came here. He says for his love, he loves her and knows there is love in her heart as well. She says he isn’t in her heart at all, she doesn’t even hate her. He holds her hand from leaving.

He says atleast she must have the courage to end it, he hands her a knife and says if she doesn’t love him she must end his story by throwing it at him before he crosses the door of the room. Swrana throws the knife behind him, it goes to the wall. Lakhan stops at once, smiles and turns around to look at Swarna. He says her aim went wrong. Swarna says they are royal people and don’t attack at back. Lakhan says that is why she always hurt his heart. Laksh watched this from window.In the corridor, Rajeshwari says to Rana ji that neither that lady will be able to hold the trunk nor will stay in the palace. They hear the trunk moving, Gayatri brought it dragging with chains on her shoulders. Savitri says from physical strength, inner strength is more important. Now he and his fake wife will witness her inner strength. She drags the trunk out of the palace.

Rana ji come behind her, everyone else also gathers. Her feet bled as she walks out of the palace with the trunk. Rana ji was moved, Gayatri’s stamina gives up and she was about to faint. Her hands also bled holding the chains. She thinks about Rana ji and keeps on moving. Rajeshwari wonders what is she thinking about with closed eyes that she has got such inner strength. Rana ji stops and holds her just as she was about to fell down at the door of the palace. Both look at each other. Gayatri thinks this was the first victory of her love, her love made him cross this door; soon it will turn him into the old Rana ji. Rana ji takes the chains from Gayatri’s hand, wraps it around his own shoulder and drags the trunk out with her.

She smiles while moving out now. Rajeshwari thinks today Rana ji crossed her drawn line because of Savitri, she didn’t do it right.Lakhan bandaged Gayatri saying wars are won by fighting. She is giving her life, not fighting. Gayatri says her life could be lost, but Rana ji didn’t let her lose it. She could never know otherwise that there is still goodness in Rana ji.There, Rajeshwari comes to Rana ji and says he could have let that maid die. Servants are the dust of feet. He has seen marrying a normal girl, what Gayatri had done to her. He is changing now. Rana ji holds her jaw tight, he says he always cut the sword or tongue both if it moves in front of him. He doesn’t need justify in front of her and leaves. Rajeshwari says she must do something about Savitri.

Lakhan asks Gayatri what she will do now. She says she is sure the servant was taking meal to Raaj mata. She will find her first.Savitri brings tea for the servant saying he will spend whole of his life working. She says he is like her father, and tells him to go and wash his hands. She puts black polish on the underside of her slippers. She thinks now his slippers will leave the marks and she will get to Raaj mata. She hears her mother calling Rana ji. She cheers and goes out. Maa was calling Rana ji from behind the bars of guards. Rana ji comes and asks what drama is happening here. Maa asks how is there so much peace in this palace. Maa says two months and her Gayatri is nowhere to be found. Rana ji asks what he should do.

Maa holds Rana ji’s collars, she says Gayatri is his responsibility. Rana ji says she was his responsibility until she tried to take his life, now he doesn’t care whether she lives or not. Maa says he had married her daughter. Rana ji says it was his mistake, the biggest of his life. Maa joins her hands to him, he says he doesn’t care for Gayatri or her family. Before he punish her for Gayatri’s sins she must leave and jerks her away. Gayatri speaks what he is doing? Rajeshwari asks why she wants to save her? Gayatri says she is her mother…. Then stops at once realizing.

Gayatri at once change her sentence that she is like her mother, and even like Rana ji’s mother. Rana ji says no, she is the mother of a lady who shot him and tried to kill him. He hates everyone related to Gayatri in anyway, he has nothing for them. Maa cries and calls Gayatri. Savitri stands silently. Gayatri thinks she is sorry she can’t tell anything to anyone right now.
Gayatri follows the foot steps, she thinks the marks go to the same room she had seen the last time. She comes to the room. Bari Rani maa comes there, she watches the foot marks and wonders why this floor is so dirty. Gayatri comes to the room, it was dark. She steps up a lid on the floor and removes the cover over it. There was an opening, Raaj Mata stood downstairs.

She was about to call her when she notices Bari Rani maa coming there. She hides herself. Bari Rani maa enters the room.
Lakhan was pressing the clothes, Laksh comes and asks if he even knows about the fire of love? He keeps the hot iron on Lakhan’s hand. He says that he is a servant, servants never live in ego but their own place. He gets on the bed and tells him to press his legs here. Lakhan thinks when Swarna had cut her wrist in front of them. Laksh repeats his order, Lakhan comes to press them. Swarna comes inside, she stops Lakhan and tells him to leave. Swarna says it is a wife’s responsibility to take care of husband, today she will serve him. Laksh stops Swarna at once. She asks what is it about, when she doesn’t bend he has a problem, when she does he has a problem even then. He himself doesn’t know what he wants.

Gayatri wonders what Bari Rani Maa is doing here. Bari Rani Maa thinks it is so dark, she thinks opens the lid and goes down the basement. Gayatri opens the lid. Bari Rani Maa comes to the jail where Raaj mata was. She calls her and cries in front of her saying she can’t tell what goes on her heart seeing her here. She says Rana ji changed altogether, Rajeshwari making him dance on her fingertips. She says if this continues, Kunwar ji will get the throne. She tells Raaj mata not to worry, she is alive. Gayatri was worried hearing this all.Lakhan says this means Bari Rani maa is on their side. Gayatri says she can’t fully trust, she has seen Bari Rani maa change colors.

She can’t trust Bari Rani maa when there is someone helping Rajeshwari in the palace. She can only trust Raaj Mata. She has to meet her alone. Lakhan gives her sleeping pills so that she can sleep well in pain as well. Gayatri says the royal people need them more than her, they made plans everyday it will be better they sleep for one day and she meets Raaj Mata. Savitri sends the servant away and mix the pills in kitchen. She hears Rana ji beating a servant outside. Savitri comes to save him, she says why he is beating him like a drum. Raja is the face of God, they aren’t God themselves. He must hold his powers. Rana ji shows her the buried treasure that the servant had arrived to collect.

Gayatri says every sin must have a punishment but there is something like love. Rana ji says love is nothing in this world. He says women aren’t worth loving, one only gets betrayal and pain in love. He turns to leave and meanwhile they both lose their holds and fell in the well dug for treasure.Inside, the family was there on the table. Kokilla asks Rajeshwari for Rana ji. Lakhan says he is walking outside and said he will eat later. They all eat the food. Lakhan thinks they will all sleep after eating it.Rana ji shouts at Savitri why she made him fell in the well along with her. Savitri says at her village it is said they will drown but will take them as well. She says like Raja, like subjects.

He says she is ill mannered. Rana ji shouts around calling his guards for help. She asks if he will try to get out of here or not? She fell on the ground at once and asks him to hold her up. He says he has done a mistake one time, will not do it again. She holds his feet, he makes her stand up. She asks if he thought he will leave here without her, subjects are responsibility of prince. He will leave here only with his subject along.Lakhan drags Swarna on the side of corridor and asks why she insulted herself in front of Laksh. She says he is her husband. He says what husband, who can’t respect his wife. She heads to leave. He says Cheetah came to the cage only for his love, this time he won’t lose his love. Laksh breaks a glass in his hand while watching this.

Gayatri and Rana ji look for a way. She taps at Rana ji’s back and shows him a tree stick and climb up. He does so and goes out. Gayatri wait down and says curtly that now he will not save him. Rana ji gives his hand down saying he will only leave with his responsibility going with him. She holds his hand, he drags her up. Her bindi hurt her, forehead bleeds and there is sindoor put on it.Gayatri holds Rana ji from his neck as he holds her back up. Gayatri thinks that today this sindoor proves that God is with them, only she has a right over him. There, Rana ji thinks about Savitri. He wonders why he can’t see her in pain, no matter how much he tries to hate here… turns around with a bang. It was Savitri, she says she has brought medicine for his hand. He says he doesn’t need it.

Savitri says his pain needs it. He jerks his hand saying he told her… she says she listened; but where is it written that she must abide by it as well. Rana ji looks at her closely and asks why she is worried for his pain. She says why asking what he can never understand. He says may be he can understand. Savitri asks why he hates her face so much. He says her eyes! They remind him of her. Savitri asks whose? Rana ji says Gayatri, her disloyalty, betrayal. Savitri says disloyalty is a bruise, not a memory; a memory is only of love. His eyes always search Gayatri everywhere. She says if mistake was of Gayatri, why he is punishing his old mother.

Rana ji shouts who is she to question him, and shouts at her to go away. She leaves. Rana ji breaks the vase in the terrace.
Laksh gets up from sleep, thinking about Lakhan and Swarna. He clutches his fist and goes out. There, Gayatri came to the servant’s sleeping room and looks for the key near his bed. Laksh was coming through the corridor and watches Savitri taking the keys from the servant’s bed. She is shocked to see Laksh there but someone hits him with a stick on head. It was Lakhan. Laksh faints. Lakhan comes inside. Gayatri asks what now? Lakhan tells her to do her work, he will take care of Laksh. He drags Laksh to a side. Gayatri heads towards the basement.
Raaj Mata, who lay on the bed in jail watches Gayatri coming to her.

Gayatri opens the jail doors and comes inside. Raaj Mata hugs her and cries. She says she knew she will come there soon. Gayatri thinks if Raaj Mata comes to know about her it can be a danger for her. She says she must be mistaken, her name is Savitri not Gayatri. Raaj Mata says she can’t be betrayed by her heart. Savitri says she will respect her like her daughter in law. She is from her subjects, she came to the palace to save her, as a maid. She asks who has kept her here. Raaj Mata says her son Rana ji. She asks if he did it willingly, or someone made him do it. Raaj Mata says Rajeshwari did this. Gayatri says she can’t do it alone, there is someone else from the palace. Raaj Mata says she is right, then at once change her tone and says she is a spy of Rajeshwari.

Rajeshwari sent her here to find out what Raaj Mata knows. She won’t be able to do anything until Gayatri comes back. Savitri says if Gayatri could have done it, there wouldn’t be any need of Savitri. Raaj Mata insists she won’t be able to do anything.
They next morning, Rana ji worked out in the garden thinking about Gayatri and Savitri. Rajeshwari comes outside, Kokilla watches them from the terrace. Rajeshwari tries to swipe his sweat with a towel. He snatches the towel saying he will do it himself. Rajeshwari tries to get closer to him saying he needs rest. Rana ji thinks about Savitri’s eyes, he pushes her away. Rajeshwari says she isn’t touching him for the first time, she is his wife whom he loves dearly.

He pushes her again and says until he gets well he can’t come close to her, she must not try it again. Rajeshwari is worried if Rana ji doesn’t let her get closer to him, how she will win his trust.
Rana ji recalls Gayatri fire a bullet at him. He calls Savitri and says he wants to sleep. She asks what? He says he isn’t feeling sleepy, she must get him milk and honey. She gets it for him, and asks how he got used to it. He says he doesn’t remember. She says he remembered the habit, but not the one who gave it to him. She remembers their past when he gave him this tip.
Kokilla tells Bari Rani Maa this is true, Rajeshwari was over Rana ji. Here, she is practicing to be a Rani and has kept an English teacher. She tells her that in English Bari rani maa is called Queen mother.

She says Rajeshwari will get an heir and will dance over their heads. Rajeshwari comes there, she says to Bari rani maa that Rana ji is changing drastically, if she doesn’t go close to him now they will lose him. Bari Rani maa asks them to tolerate one another. In the next six months everything will get fine. The game is on a delicate turn, if Rana ji’s memory comes back before six months and he gets to know about their truth he will never sign the property papers but their death orders. She says they have waken up the animal in Rana ji but they need to keep it pet.
There, Gayatri thinks that if Rana ji’s memory comes back Rana ji will also come back. It is now time to throw stones in the lake of memories. This task will be done by Gayatri.
