Once there was a king 21 December 2021: An announcement about Raaj Mata’s arrival is done. Bhabis are excited to see her. Kinour’s princess arrives at the party, Gayatri stares as she passes by her.Raaj mata says to Sharmila that she is welcomed here. Sharmila was arrogant and says she never goes to party, but she had heard a lot about Aamirkot so she had to come to see its beauty. She says she hasn’t seen it yet, and will tell her later if the appreciation was right or wrong. Raaj Mata says she will find it neither less nor exaggeration but less. Kunwar tells Kokila to make sure Sharmilla doesn’t say yes to marry Rana ji.
Kokilla comes to Raaj Mata who introduces her to Sharmila. Kokilla appreciates that Sharmila went to study abroad. Sharmila says to her mother that wasn’t Kokilla conservative. Kokilla says she had to change with time, and takes Sharmila along.The british officer comes to say to Raaj Mata that she arranged a bit more lavish party than she could afford. When the water is less, one must not water the crops all day.Gayatri heard this and answers the officer that their water isn’t less, its streams have just started to empty themselves into other seas.
She says they consider their guests at God and food isn’t counted at the time to serve them well. She says that some thieves entered their house to rob them. The british officer doesn’t get what she says. Raaj Mata is happy to see Gayatri. She asks Deevan ji (her associate) who the girl is. He introduces her to Seth Govind, Raaj Mata says she liked his presence here. Govind Seth says he couldn’t bring any gift as he is tight in his finances these days, he isn’t getting his loans back. Raaj Mata arrogantly says that time runs according to royal kingdom’s will in a state.
She asks Deevan who the girl is, Seth ji introduces Gaytri as his daughter. Raaj Mata asks her maid to get to know why Gayatri wasn’t married till yet, she wants to know about Govind’s weakness.Mr. Wilkinsons leave the party in anger, telling Kunwar that he had enough of ill treatment.Kokilla shows the palace to Sharmila. Sharmilla asks about Rana ji. Kokilla says he remains lost into the thoughts of his first wife. Sharmilla doesn’t concentrate over what she said, she says she came to meet Rana ji so when he will come.
Kunwar comes to Seth ji who speaks to each other both trying to let each other down. Kunwar asks Seth ji if he knows any difference between Royal family and the normal people. Govind Seth says that the Royal People have sharp tongues while the normal people have sharp minds for business. Kunwar says they have sharp swords as well. Govind Seth takes a leave saying the times of swords are gone now. Kunwar is determined to break his arrogance today.
Rana ji plays piano. Sharmilla and Gayatri and everyone in the party enjoys the music. Gayatri hides herself as Rana ji looks up at her, as she day dreamed about being alone with him in the room. Her dream breaks when everyone claps for him. Rana ji comes to the party and greets all the guests. Gayatri keeps looking at him from a distance. She watches him wearing her handkerchief, her maa comes to her and asks where she is lost as her Bauji has been waiting for long. A waiter serves something that was objectionable to Gayatri’s family, Gayatri says this is royal palace and they must not eat something like them.
Raaj Mata brings Kinour’s Maharaja and his wife to introduce to Rana ji. Sharmilla introduces herself and forwards her hand. Rana ji takes it. Gayatri is curt watching this.Sharmila doesn’t leave Rana Ji’s hand but he removes his hand off hers.Rana Ji takes a leave. Sharmila comes aside with Kokilla and says he has got an attitude and it is going to be fun. Kokilla says that she told her he is always lost in the thoughts of his old wife. She suggests her not to marry someone who loves another woman. Sharmila says she likes puzzles and Rana ji is also a puzzle, even she doesn’t want to marry. She goes behind Rana ji who was going upstairs. Gayatri notices this and follows them. Sharmila comes behind Rana ji and says she had heard Amarkot’s Rana ji is a perfect gentleman, he didn’t ask for dance even. Rana ji says she heard that ladies wait for gentlemen to ask for dance, not question them.
He takes a seat. Sharmila gets annoyed and says how dared he, she isn’t interested in him as well. Rana ji asks still she left a huge party to follow him upstairs. He says his method about showing disrespect is a bit different. Sharmila questions what his way of showing the disrespect is. He doesn’t reply, Sharmila leaves saying what he thinks of himself, it alright if he doesn’t want to speak. Rana ji gets up in a while and leaves for party downstairs. Gayatri appears from behind the curtain.
In the party Raaj Mata comes to Rana ji and asks if he attended Sharmila. Rana ji says she is a modern girl and doesn’t need to be attended. Raaj Mata gets that he misbehaved with the guests and tells him to improve his mistake else Raaj Mata will be blamed for not bringing him up well. He obliges and asks a waiter to give a glass to the girl standing upstairs and tell her he sent it.Bhabhi’s discussed about their mission to go and search Gayatri as they have to unveil her secrets to her parents.
Gayatri peeked from upstairs, a waiter brings a drink for her. Gayatri tastes it to be bad, still she thinks Rana ji sent this so she must drink it.Bhabhi’s come upstairs saying what they are doing here upstairs leaving the whole palace. They point Gayatri drinking something, and comment it must be some tasty drink. They say that their mother in law inhibited them to drink anything here. They take a glass from the tray a waiter was taking. She smells it and says this is wine. They cheer that Gayatri has made their work really easy. There will surely be drama today.
Drunk, Gayatri leaves for downstairs watching Rana ji. Bhabhi’s smells the wine and the elder one says that this is surely wine. Gayarti loses her control as she stands on stairs staring Rana ji continuously. She points at the Rana ji and says she is staring this man. Gayatri thinks that Rana ji is strange, he sent her drink but didn’t come to meet her, she must question him. She steps down, asking that first she will thanks him for drink and then she will ask why he sent her a bitter drink like this.Bhabhis come downstairs and comes to Maa saying they found Gayatri but she has been looking for someone. They thought Gayatri doesn’t recognize anyone here other than them but look at her.
Maa ji watches Gayatri going behind Rana ji. Bhabi regrets that nothing happened, Maa asks what had to happen when Gayatri comes there. Maa asks where she has been lost. Gayatri says she has been looking for him.then stops and says Bauji. Maa says she has also been looking for her Bauji, they must go home soon. Bhabhis come to Gayatri and asks what she is looking for. Gayatri asks if they have known. Bhabhi say if she doesn’t want to tell it is alright. Bhabhis compel Gayatri to have some more drinks, she denies saying they taste very bad.
But Bhabhis say she must drink it just in the sweet memories of the one she has been looking for. Gayatri thinks she will drink anything for his love.
