Ankush gives the property papers to laywer. He says it will take some time for legal formalities, but you will get the property, but how did Kalindi sign on it, I thought she is smart. Ankush says he is smart. The lawyer checks the papers and laughs. He asks is this her sign. Ankush says yes. The man says I know you are smart, but she is your mum, see what she wrote. Ankush reads Sudhar Jaao instead of her sign. He gets angry. Astha brings Anjali and Shlok to the ashram. She says I want Aai to be here. Shlok says what are you saying. Astha says Aai will be safe here, I m afraid after what happened today, who will take care of her when we go to find Jobs.
She says she can get food and clean bed here. She says we can’t give her basic necessities, her parents are here, she can share her pain with them. Shlok says I understand Astha’s concern, but Aai will be with us, I will do anything for this, I want to give all world’s happiness to her, I have hurt her a lot, I want to take care of her. He says its matter of few days. Astha says I understand your feelings, I know you are hurt by this decision, but if she stays with us, she will be more hurt, think we can’t be in peace being afraid, we will take a small home and then take Aai home. Shlok thinks of this incident and agrees. Anjali says no, I won’t leave you two, I want to be with you. Astha and Shlok explain her to understand. Anjali cries and nods no.
