Our perfect place 8 April 2020: Inder says that he has forever been living in the guilt of marrying out of greed for money and now repents of it. ila is aghast and asks how could he, after she stood byhim, and went even against govardhan when he was right all along.
he says that he has been punished enough, as he suffered losses in business, and is knee deep in debt, and that he lost out on her good faith too now. she says that she cant believe he swore falsely on their dead mother. Inder asks for apology and forgiveness. ila says that humans forgive for mistakes, but only the lord can forgive for a sin. she walks in. she asks him not to go anywhere in the night and can leave in the morning. inder is tear stricken, while gayatri and parimal stand tensed.
In the middle of the night, thieves raid the place. ila wakes up by the blinding light of the torches, of the thieves, and complies and gives all jewellery that she has, as they have a gun pointed at her. as everyone hears the commotion, they gather up. inder comes and confronts them, saying that he needs to spare her and take him instead. he fights off the goons, and gets hit by a bullet in return in his arm. they are aghast. the thieves run off. she asks why did he jump in. he says that he got berserk when he saw her at gunpoint. they find that its a flesh wound. he refuses to let them call the doctor, and not take him to the hospital.
They are tensed that he is so reluctant to go to the hospital. she asks if he is hiding something. he tries to cover the pain, but she asks him to speak up. he says that he is tired of hospitals, meds and doctors, and that the last time he went, he swore he wouldnt go again. they are boggled. parimal asks why did he have to go again and again. inder says that the biggest joke of his life, is that his heart’s valve has been damaged. they are shocked. gayatri asks whats the cure. inder says that its heart transplant, but only a lucky and fortunate few get it. parimal asks whats the chances, and hopes of getting a healthy heart. inder says that the time period ended last month, and he doesnt know how he is alive till now. ila is distraught and asks if this is the reason he came to her. he complies saying that he knew this would cause strain on her relationship with govardhan, but still risked it, because he never knew if they would be able to meet again tomorrow. gayatri asks if the adventure trips were all deliberate. he says that it was indeed his bucket list.
parimal insists on calling a doctor for the bandages. he complies. ila says that had this not happened, then he would have gone without telling her anything. he says that he couldnt make her happy, but didnt want to leave her sad. parimal says that the doctor would come soon, and decides to call the police too of this info. inder complies.
Meanwhile, Rita and niranjan cry inconsolably in their own rooms, frustrated and hassled. The next morning, govardhan arrives back in his house. he talks to ramesh, and assures that he is fine, and is tensed only because ila hasnt returned yet.
Location: Parimal’s residence
At the breakfast table, ila finds inder tensed and asks whats the matter. inder says that he needs to see how more he is punished. parimal asks him not to say so.
inder says that he cant stand her being so emotional and teary eyed. gayatri is tensed too. inder says that he didnt want to see this, hence was going without saying anything. ila asks how to explain this to herself, that her brother shall go very soon. he says that he is alive and asks her to be happy and smiling. she complies, and asks if there is any other medical breakthrough, that can cure his condition. Parimal tries to find some other cure and consultation. inder says that its vain, as they have tried everything. ila says that she shall resort to her goddess, and shall take him there rightaway. he asks her not to waste time. she gives him a mythological reason and asks him to trust her. he asks her not to bother, as its in vain. but she insists. he says that she has to accept his death sometime.
she asks him to go to Rajkot after being with her. gayatri too urges him to. Parimal asks him too, but inder is too reluctant, saying that he wont be able to bear their disappointment and loss of hope yet again. but ila is confident that her hope and his heart wont break, and goes to pack her bags. inder is tensed. gayatri tells him that she feels he shall be okay. he smiles at her, and says that he came to meet his sister, but got such a beautiful daughter. gayatri asks him to come home, and take care of her, as a father does. he says that he came for apology, but now is taking back new relations, and blesses her. gayatri gets food ready for them, as inder and ila get ready to leave. he bids them all goodbye teary eyed and emotionally overwhelmed. ila asks what happened. he says that its nothing, and shows the pen that govardhan had given him, and wondered if he got a chance to touch his feet, his end would have been nice. ila gets tensed. he says that he merely said because she wanted him to. she says that rahul told he has come back, but didnt call. she gets nostalgic.
Govardhan talks to his sons and bahus, saying that ila didnt call him even once, while he was gone. he says that its clear that she shall return only after her brother goes, and that he means the world to her now, overpassing him too. he says that he cant believe she is siding with the person, who gave him such pain. he says that he doesnt know if he would be able to forgive ila for what she is doing to him. ila comes asking him never to forgive her. all get tensed when she barges in. govardhan eyes her tensedly. parimal and gayatri come too. ila asks if she has committed a sin, by fighting with her husband for him. she accepts the blame, and he lashes at her furthermore. she silently accep0ts the blame, that she was wrong in her belief, but her love for her brother was right. he continues to ridicule and mock her, while she pleads him. he says that her talks are merely enraging him furthermore, and not stop it. she asks what would he do now in anger, kill inder, then he can very well go ahead and do so, as she has brought him with her. inder walks in hesitantly, as govardhan eyes him enraged. all are tensed.
