Strange Love 21 August 2021: The Episode starts with Varad asking Mansi not to be annoyed anymore. His mobile rings and its Sojal. He takes the call. Sojal asks where is he. He says he is busy in work. She says I called on office and came to know you are not at office. He gets angry and says he is out for some work meeting. She asks is Mansi in that meeting. He says no and ends the call. Mansi asks why is he so worried, its better to tell her the truth. He says you know her, she will create a big issue. She says I m also bearing her since long, she should also start bearing me now. He says tell me you are joking, what happened to you, I have to explain you every time, you tell me what should I tell her, she doubts us so problem solved for you, congrats.
Niranjan drinks the juice and asks Anjali will she have it. Anand comes and asks him to come for the meeting. Niranjan says fine, Anand you take Astha’s signs, as if she does not come again, the work should not stop. Anand says fine and leaves. Niranjan gives his hand to Anjali and asks her to come in the meeting. She is stunned. She says she does not know any work, I can’t. He says why are you worried. He says you have to work if you are here, come on, and wipes her tears.
Anand comes to Shlok and says meeting is going to start and asks Astha to come with him to sign some account papers. She says fine and leaves. Shlok thinks Astha you told love just gives happiness, you did not tell me it hurts so much sometimes. Anand gives the papers to Astha saying Niranjan asked you to sign. She says its required after three months, you can send this home, I will read it and sign later. He says but Sir said you have to sign today. She says fine and signs on them. Anand makes faces. Astha asks about the meetng. She says send this files to my cabin, I will call Aai there. He says Anjali Mam went in meeting. She thinks why did she go, maybe Baba took her, so Anand called me here so that he can make me busy and not see Anjali going in meeting.
Niranjan brings Anjali in the meeting and introduces her to everyone. Anjali says Namaskaar. He says Anjali will explain us to take this project ahead in girls education field. Everyone claps for her, Anjali gets tensed. He thinks I will make her face embarrassment, that she won’t dare to come here again, and like always I will manage this situation. Astha walks towards the conference hall. Shlok comes and is shocked seeing Anjali.Niranjan signs Shlok to come and sit.He says your mum wanted to show her opinion on this project, so how could I stop her. He asks Anjali to share her views for girls education so that it can double their prosperity, come on start now. Anjali is blank. Astha comes there and Niranjan stops getting up seeing her. Niranjan thinks he made Astha busy in work, how did she come here. He says come Astha. He thinks I was showing Anjali her place, but I forgot Astha will not let me win so easily in my aim. The man asks Anjali not to get worried and says we all want to know your views.
Astha says actually Gupta ji, Anjali makes any plan with Niranjan, so his views are same like Aai’s.She says maybe few things Baba did not say, she wrote it in paper, I have it with me, I will get that paper. She goes and brings a paper. She says Aai came here for first time, and she could not say freely, so I will say what she wants to say. Astha reads the blank paper. Anjali is shocked. Astha shares her views points. She says we should have GK, computers, health awareness programs apart from normal subjects, we should give some prize to such girls to make others encouraged. We should help poor girls by sponsorships. She says we should tie up with big companies to get job placement offers for girls, seeing their talent. She says its for all candidates but more for girls, education makes a person independent. She says I m sure Baba and Shlok agree with this Aai’s thoughts, as girl’s education is our biggest aim. Everyone clap, including Niranjan.
The people praise Anjali’s inspirational and simple thoughts, Anjali is behind your success, she has a good mentality so you have reached this place, as its said a woman is behind a man’s success, I want you to ask you to come office regularly. He says even he wishes it, and he will try to get her to office. He thanks Anjali and claps. Astha takes Anjali with her. Shlok looks at Niranjan and is angry on Astha. Jyoti and Riya have a talk about her marriage. Riya says she is going to keep Hartalika fast. Renuka says no, learn from Jyoti how to trap good guys. Sid comes and talks to Jyoti about Ganpati items. He does some shopping too and shows a frock for Anaya. She says beautiful, but somewhat big. He brings a saree for Jyoti. Riya asks what about me.
Renuka says he does not have time for us. Sid says how can this happen. He brings a dress for Riya and saree for Renuka. She turns her face. He says please see it, you know Jyoti told me get the best thing for Maa. Jyoti asks Renuka to keep both sarees if she likes. Renuka takes it wrongly. Jyoti says she will nott hurt her heart, I know you don’t like it, but trust me I will think about your happiness first. Renuka thinks Sid gave me more costly saree than Jyoti, don’t know what magic she did on me, she wants to show me down in his eyes, I understand her plan.
Astha asks Anjali is she fine. Shlok comes to them and asks Astha what the hell are you trying to prove, I saw blank paper in your hand, why do you want to make Anjali great, nothing will happen, Baba is not made by her, he is successful by his hardwork, Anjali is blank and a zero, don’t compare her to Baba. Anjali thinks this is happening because of me and prays to Lord for them.Niranjan thinking about Anjali’s appraisal. Shlok comes and asks why did he call Anjali in meeting. He says what can I do, it was Astha and Anjali’s wish. Shlok says I can’t bear your insult you know Anjali, she did not give love to her children and did not manage home well. Niranjan says you think this but Astha thinks something else, she is my bahu and I have to make her wish true. This will go on till your relation becomes…… no how can I think this, I know you and Astha love each other, and its wrong to think your relation can end.
Shlok says I know you wanted to unite us, I don’t think our relation can become normal again, don’t know what happened to her, she just wants to insult you, but for me its clear I m against that person who is against you, I won’t let her win, she can’t make Anjali stand against you. Niranjan hugs him.Astha and Anjali are on the way back home. Anjali says she did mistake going to office, she does not know anything to do in office, I can manage just home. Astha says Baba wants to prove this that a woman is limited to home, we have to prove that woman can manage both. Anjali says you are right, but I feel hurt seeing Niranjan hurt, I promise I won’t bear any injustice and I won’t do anything wrong. Anjali stops the car. Astha asks what happened. Anjali says its Hartalika fast tomorrow, I will keep it for Niranjan. Astha asks can’t husband keep for us. Anjali says Shlok kept it last time. Astha says she will keep the fast, though he is annoyed and kept a rope between them.
Anjali shows a shop where they get all puja items and then they have to order Ganpati too. Sojal asks the maid to clean their side of home. She asks her not to clean the other side. Kavya plays and a vase breaks. Sojal scolds her. Kavya asks her to remove the rope. Anjali and Astha come. Sojal says the home is divided. Kavya asks what do you mean. Sojal says Astha and Anjali and us are apart now. Anjali scolds her. Kavya asks Astha will you not be with Shlok now. Astha says no, we are just playing a game, no division. She says its game of life, we are annoyed so being away, then we will know we can’t be apart and become friends again. Kavya asks her to become Shlok’s friend soon, as fighting is bad. Play any other game, not this.
Astha says promise we will be friends again, now you go and play with your new doll. Astha gets tears in her eyes. Mansi tries a saree. Varad comes to her and asks whats special, I felt you might be annoyed, it looks like you are preparing for celebration. She says yes, its tomorrow, how is this saree. He says yes. She tells about Hartalika fast she is keeping for him. He says why are you keeping fast. She asks why can’t I, I love you, its simple, why are you stopping me. He says you did not do this before, why are you changing now. She says I feel like keeping the fast, don’t argue. He thinks what happened to her, why is she changing, I love her as she is different and now she is not being that.
Astha gets Kalindi’s call and acts normal. Kalindi asks her to come home on Hartalika. Astha thinks if I go home, Anjali will be alone here. Astha says Shlok and Anjali want me to be here this time, its not a problem, I will come, but Shlok can feel bad. Kalindi says its fine, you stay there. Anjali hears this and asks whats this. Landline rings. Anjali calls the maid to answer it. Sita does not come. Jyoti calls. Anjali takes the call. Jyoti asks when are you coming to take me on Hartalika. Anjali asks her to be with her family, Renuka will not like when you come here often, spend time with her, keep fast with her.She asks Jyoti to come on Ganesh Chaturthi. Jyoti says fine, you are right. Anjali says take care and ends the call. Ajju comes to Kalindi and asks why is she upset.
Kalindi says she is angry as everything changed after Astha’s marriage. She misses Astha and says she is not coming even on festivals. Ajju says we will go there, don’t be tensed, its her first Hartalika, she wants to celebrate with her husband. Kalindi says she is her mum, and misses her a lot. Ajju says I will never leave you and go, now smile. Kalindi hugs her. Sojal smiles seeing Sita work for her and Astha working in their side. Anjali tells Astha that she wanted to celebrate Ganpati and Hartalika grand way but she stopped Jyoti, as she will be hurt seeing the house division.
Astha says what will we do when Jyoti comes for Ganpati, trust Lord, he will show some way. Kavya comes wearing tiger mask and all the water falls. Sojal scolds Kavya. Shlok walks in and asks whats all this. Sojal says we are preparing to bring Ganpati. Niranjan comes and sees the water in floor. Shlok says who told you Ganesh ji is coming to our home this year. This time Ganesh ji will not be brought by anyone. Kavya says why, he is my fave Ganesh ji, he will come. Shlok says I said no once. Kavya runs and asks Shlok to stop this game and break this rope. She pulls the rope. Niranjan signs Sojal to take Kavya.Sojal takes Kavya. Astha says Shlok, what did you get hurting Kavya, she was happy. Shlok says you broke her heart, you want to bring Ganpati so that people come and see our division and insult Baba. She says you are misunderstanding me. He says I know everything, I won’t bear this. Anjali says Ganpati comes every year, its not right to stop him. Its old traditions which Niranjan;s family started, Ganpati will come, your fight is with Astha, I won’t let this affect traditions. Niranjan says this word traditions looks small from you, you have let the division happen, what kind of mum are you.He says Astha is kiddish, but you are mature and could explain her that her step is wrong, but what did you do, you supported wrong, how can I expect you can teach her right and wrong. He says this year Ganpati will not come in this house.
