She says no, people will joke on you and I won’t like you anyone making fun of you. He says I don’t care and ties a thread to her.She asks why are you doing this. He says as you want me to be your husband in 7 births, I also want the same. Mahiya…………plays……….. Astha gets tears in her eyes. He takes her rounds and ties the thread around her. Maine khudko tujhme tujhko mujhe karliya hai shamil……………….. mai tha adhura paa tujhko hogaya hai kaamil……….. tu hi mera hosh hosh bhi, tu hi meri bekhudi…. She thinks of his love.

Shlok wipes Astha’s tears. He applies Kumkum to her. Astha hugs Shlok and smiles.
Anjali smiles seeing baby clothes. Niranjan comes and is angry seeing her. He asks what are you doing. She says these are our children’s clothes. She says it looks like its yesterday, their first smile, their first step, their calling us Aai Baba. Niranjan asks why are you thinking about it now, but in present, do you know your weakness, your children are taking their decisions. She asks what do you mean, did anything happen. He says my son Shlok, whom I thought is my shadow, has kept a fast for his wife. Since when has men started to keep fast. She says I asked her to explain Shlok. He says did it change anything, no, you are living my past and slipping off present.
He throws the clothes out of the window. He says I told you many times, to control Astha, make her like you, she is coloring Shlok in her love, come out of past and manage this house. He says I don’t want to see these memories again. Anjali cries and says these clothes had our memories of our children, you have thrown it, if anyone sees this. He says no one should see this, it should be burnt. Anjali is shocked. Astha sees the baby clothes and picks it up. She says its so cute. He says go and burn it, I don’t have any interest in their childhood, I want their future to be according to my rules.
He leaves. Anjali goes out and takes the clothes. Astha says tell me you made this sweaters, I have to show this to Jyoti. Astha snatches it from her hand and runs. Anjali says she does what she thinks, and goes after her. Varad gets a call and is stunned. He says we talk about work, I thought she will be bored, so I did not bring her. He ends the call, and thinks what to do, how to take Sojal, but I don’t have any choice, I just hope that she makes my position awkward, I will make it clear.Astha shows the clothes to Jyoti. Jyoti says its very beautiful, did you make it. Astha says no, Anjali made this for your daughter. Jyoti says no, she can’t do this. Astha takes Anjali’s side and says I m sure she has made this with love, see its so cute, she is eagerly waiting for your daughter. She says I will keep this with me. Anjali smiles hearing their talk. Jyoti says don’t make me dream, as I will be hurt when it breaks.
Anjali thinks I did not know when my children went far from me, but the day your daughter wears the clothes I made, that day will be the happiest one for me. Anjali leaves.Astha says Anjali is not bad, try to understand her, you are her daughter. Jyoti says no, I don’t want to understand. Sojal scolds Kavya and says you are becoming Jhalli like Astha. Varad comes to her and says I need to talk to you. She complains about Kavya. He sends Kavya out. He says we have to go on business dinner tonight. Sojal is very excited and says my days are changing, will you do business or dinner. He explains her. She says I don’t have new saree and jewellery. He says make sure its simple and elegant, and behave there as I say, inform Anjali about this. Sojal smiles.
Astha comes in the kitchen and asks this tiffin is for whom. Anjali asks her to go to ashram as she made kheer for her parents. Astha says but they will be happy if you go. Anjali says no, I can’t go, give this big tiffin tto everyone and this one for my parents. Astha kisses her and says I will take it, you are so sweet. Kalindi calls Astha and says I was waiting for your call. Astha says sorry, I forgot, happy marriage anniversary. Kalindi invites the family for dinner. Astha tells this to Anjali. Anjali says everyone can’t go, you and Shlok go. Astha tells this to Kalindi. Anjali asks Astha to buy a nice gift for her parents. Astha leaves.

He says fine, I will come.She says I will make the cake and leaves. Sid cries thinking about Avdhoot’s words that its wrong to love a married woman Jyoti, and this can risk Astha’s future too. He says Ajju, I know you want to see me happy, so you have supported me, but I can’t be selfish, Astha did not think about herself, she is supporting me for me, I did not think about her, Kaka is right, Jyoti is Niranjan Agnihotri’s daughter, if he knows Astha is supporting me, he will be angry, one side there is my love whom I want to give happiness and other side my sister who is supporting me, risking her life.
Shlok comes to Niranjan in his cabin and says I will leave now. Niranjan says fine. Shlok says I will be late at night, its Astha’s parents’ anniversary. Niranjan asks him to buy a gift.

She says you said I have to look pretty, and people should know how expensive jewels I have. Varad brings a necklace and says wear this. She says this, its thin than a rope, I won’t. He says this is diamond necklace, its very costly. She changes the jewellery. She thinks Varad does not know fashion, people should know what I m wearing.
She keeps the other necklace and thinks I will wear it there. Varad gets a call and says yes, we are coming. Varad says Sojal, be careful, don’t talk much, answer with love, and don’t talk about family, as no one will be interested, keep a smile on face. She says do you think I m stupid, I know how to talk to people. He says I know, but I m just saying, be quiet, I know its tough for you, but try. He says hold this, its champagne. She says what? Can we gift this. He says Sojal… and leaves. She says wait and goes after him.
Sid comes to meet Ajju. She says the world has not ended, you have your whole life, and we are with you, don’t worry, trust Bappa, think he is testing you, leave it on him.

Sojal is new to spoon and fork. She asks Varad what is this food, how can I eat this, its so dry. Varad says have it quietly. She says fine.
She eats it and says it has less salt. The lady says no, its perfect. Sojal says no. The lady says its first time someone criticized my pasta. Sojal gives her odd suggestions.
