True Love 4 February 2021: Meethi is sure that Rani will accept Tamanna as Rani is her daughter. I know it will be little tough in the beginning but eventually they both will accept each other. Nani says you might not have seen what we have seen in our lives. Elders can accept each other but kids cannot! Damini you have seen everything. You remember how sweetly Tappu had brought Iccha home holding her hand but what happened afterwards? They recall how Tappu had started feeling envious of Iccha because her love was getting divided. Tappu was full of anger and hatred towards Iccha for years. Rani returns from her tennis practise. She stops seeing them talking. Nani says parents are everything for their kids. They can share their toys and stuff but not their parents. Rani greets them and then heads upstairs to freshen up.
Nani says Damini and I have lived a long journey of friendship and enmity together. We both have been against each other for life but now we both are scared. Hope history will not repeat itself in this house!
Rani is shocked to see Tamanna in her room. She throws Tamanna’s bag on the floor and makes Tamanna get down from the bed. This is your place! Meethi promises Nani that history wont repeat itself. Rani is my daughter. She will certainly accept Tamanna. Nani blesses her that her words turn out to be true. Ram hi Rakhey, who wants Uttaran word to create havoc in people’s life yet again!
Rani asks Tamanna what she is doing in her room. She throws Tamanna’s stuff on the floor too and glares at Tamanna who is sobbing silently. Nani prays that neither of the girls let anger or jealousy enter in their lives. Rest is up to God. They hear Rani shouting for Meethi Ma and papa. Tamanna is in my room. Meethi heads upstairs. Nani and Damini look at each other worriedly. Rani tells Tamanna time and again that she is not her sister. Meethi comes there. Rani tells Meethi that Tamanna is not my sister. She will not stay in my room. I will not tolerate anything that she has touched. Nani and Damini can feel the past coming back again. They recall how Mukta too was not willing to share her room with Meethi. Maiyya comes there as well. Meethi tells Rani not to misbehave.
Tamanna will stay in this room only with you. this is my decision. Put Tamanna’s bag back where it was. Rani makes angry faces. Meethi asks her what the problem with Tamanna is. We all had accepted you when you had come here. Did anyone trouble you? you call me Ma yet you cannot accept what I am saying? Rani says she will agree to everything but this (pointing at Tamanna). Meethi firmly tells her that Tamanna will share this room with her from today. She tells Tamanna to shake hands with Rani Didi. Nani can see Tappu in Rani. Meethi tells Tamanna to listen to Rani always as she is elder to you. rani, you too should shake hands with Tamanna as she is your younger sister. You have her responsibility now. She must not get hurt ever because of you. Rani refuses to accept Tamanna as her sister. Plus only you are my mother, not hers! Meethi tries to make Rani understand. I too had accepted you just like I am trying to accept Tamanna today. you still could not learn anything from me? Tamanna suggests going back to which Rani affirms. This is my room, my house. She pushes Tamanna a little telling her to go out. Meethi shouts at Rani. Is this the way to behave? Tamanna will live in this house and this room only, with you! this is my decision.
Rani makes it clear to Tamanna that she is not her sister. You will shout on me for her? You cannot be my Meethi Ma. You were so good. You never used to shout on me. You shouted on me today because of her. you are not my Meethi Ma. Maiyya too tells Meethi not to shout on Rani. Think from her perspective for a second, you will understand what she must be feeling. She tells Rani to sleep with her grandmother today. rani leaves with Maiyya. Damini asks Meethi about her decision. You said you and Akash have thought over it. How will things fall in place if you will lose your cool? You will have to explain things to Rani very calmly that Tamanna is her sister. You will have to be patient. Kids are not in fault in all this. Hope you understand my point. Meethi nods. Damini says give some time. Nani supports Damini. Kids are like wet sand. You can mould it as you want to. Damini introduces herself to Tamanna. Meethi has accepted you as her daughter so don’t be scared. Meethi will always take care of you. She will love you always and keep you as her daughter. Smile. Tamanna smiles finally.
Next morning, Maiyya wakes up Rani. Rani wants to sleep more but Maiyya tells her to go to her Meethi Ma then. you were missing her at night. Akash and Meethi are your parents. Don’t insult them for any Tamanna. Rani says they love her more than me. Maiyya tells her to think that your Meethi Ma has got a new toy. She will be over it in a few days. Parents are parents. You must not disrespect them. Go and apologize now. Rani agrees. She gives a thank you kiss to her Dadi and runs towards her room. Rani is shocked to see Meethi and Tamanna sleeping together. I had come here to say sorry to her (Meethi) but she is sleeping here with this Tamanna. I will not apologize to her now! Meethi wakes up and notices Rani standing at the door. Rani turns to go but Meethi calls out for her. Rani is angry with her for sleeping with Tamanna. You sent me to another room. You got so attached to her in one day only? I will not talk to you ever. She leaves from there while Meethi tries to talk to her but in vain. Rani gets ready for school. Tamanna walks inside the room happily but is scared seeing Rani. Rani is very much miffed with her. Tamanna opens the cupboard to take out her new clothes brought by Meethi Ma. Rani stops her and even mocks her for the same. she takes the bags from Tamanna. Don’t call my Meethi Ma your Meethi Ma. She is only my Meethi Ma. Plus these clothes are for me, not for you. Tamanna asks her what she will wear after taking a shower then.
I change my clothes daily. Rani says I don’t care. She suddenly stops as she recalls Maiyya’s words about giving her old stuff to Tamanna. She agrees to give better clothes to Tamanna. Rani gives her old clothes (Uttaran) to Tamanna to wear. Title track plays in the background while Tamanna looks at the dress sadly. Rani smirks in relief while Tamanna misses her dad as she holds the dress in her hands.
Meethi tells Rani that she has packed her favourite lunch for her. Rani is still not talking to her. Tamanna comes downstairs wearing Rani’s old dress. Meethi is taken aback to see her thus. Why are you wearing Rani’s old clothes when I had brought new dresses for you? Tamanna lies that she wore it as she liked it. Meethi and Akash are taken aback. Tamanna looks at Rani who signals her thumbs up in her direction. Meethi tells Tamanna that she doesn’t have to wear anyone’s Uttaran in this house. Maiyya interrupts Meethi. this isn’t Uttaran. She said she liked it so she wore it. Rani is the heir of this house after all while Tamanna too will be staying here. Is this not Uttaran? Tamanna asks Meethi Ma what is Uttaran. Meethi thinks of Nani’s words when she had come to Thakur House for the first time. Mukta is the heir of this house. Our family believes in giving Uttaran and not in taking it. Meethi too had asked her the same question. Nani had told her to ask this question to Damini as she knows what Uttaran is! Epi ends on Meethi’s shocked face.
Tamanna asks Meethi Ma what is Uttaran. Meethi replies that when someone gives people their old stuff, toys or clothes while saying that they don’t need it. People’s used stuff is called Uttaran! Tamanna looks at her dress immediately. This means old clothes are Uttaran? Akash denies. Your Meethi Ma dint understand the point correctly. Uttaran means you share whatever you have with others, like love and values, your everything. This is called Uttaran. Meethi smiles. I never realised it meant this too. Akash too smiles in reply. Tamanna asks him if it is not a mistake to wear Rani Didi’s clothes in Uttaran. This means that Didi has given this to me with love? Akash and Meethi look at Rani in confusion. Akash answers in affirmation. This is your elder sister’s love for you. Meethi continues to look at Rani in shock. Akash picks up Tamanna in his arms. We will have breakfast now. Tamanna smiles at Rani but Rani continues to be upset. Meethi serves cake to Tamanna. She eats it properly using a knife and spoon seeing which Akash and Meethi are impressed while Rani gets up miffed. I don’t have time. I am leaving for school with driver uncle. She stares one last time at Tamanna and then walks out though Meethi tries to call out to her but in vain. Akash can see things clearly. Maiyya points out to him that he should be careful as to when to praise outsiders. She gets up to go but he tells her to listen to him.
Tamanna is not an outsider now. Meethi and I have decided to adopt her. everything in this house belong to both Rani and Tamanna now. Tamanna will be going in the same school where Rani will be studying. Maiyya walks off from there.
Damini tells Maiyya not to think about own blood, outsiders, family’s respect. If elders wont talk about all this stuff then I feel that we can raise both the kids easily. If we elders don’t teach them jealousy then it will prove out to be fruitful for both our and their future. Maiyya understands her point but it is of no use. Rani is my blood, she is the heir of this house. This house has got its heir after lot many prayers. Meethi returns with Rani and Tamanna just then. She is scolding Rani. Don’t talk to me from today onwards, go to your room. Rani too refuses to talk to her. you only love this Tamanna. Focus on her only. Don’t think about me. Chameli left me here thinking that you will love me a lot but she dint know that you will bring a girl in this house and make her my sister and love her more than me. She heads upstairs. Maiyya tries to talk to her but Rani walks off. Tamanna greets everyone. Maiyya asks Meethi why she was scolding Rani. Meethi dismisses it as nothing. She tells Tamanna to freshen up. I will get food for you. Tamanna points out that even Rani DIdi has not eaten anything. Meethi agrees to bring food for both of them. She sends Tamanna to change her clothes. Maiyya asks for an explanation from Meethi. Meethi is upset with Rani as she is becoming manner less. She called Tamanna an orphan in school in front of everyone. She said that Tamanna was sitting on road and my mother brought her home. Nani is shocked. Damini wonders how kids can come up with an idea like that. If we grownups will be careful about it then the kids will be careful too. Maiyya says it is Rani’s house. She will speak up if she doesn’t like something.
Damini nods. I can understand she will feel bad as she is a kid but these kinds of words are not right. Nani tells Meethi that she has seen how badly Tamanna’s entry in this house has affected Rani. Her behaviour and thinking will only worsen in future. This jealousy will only grow in future. Meethi is sure it wont happen. What if they both were my real daughters? Would they have behaved in the same manner then? No, right! I cannot understand how this idea came up in Rani’s mind. I can understand jealousy if two daughters from different families are living under the same roof but Rani and Tamanna are my daughters. I have learnt a lot from Iccha Ma and Tapasya Ma. Mukta and I have been through something similar. I don’t want Rani and Tamanna to go through the same thing. I promise there will be no jealousy or hatred between the two. I will raise them in such a way that it will look that they are real sisters. Maiyya disagrees with her bluntly. This is not possible. Our blood is our blood while an outsider remains an outsider. She goes upstairs to talk to Rani. Damini asks Meethi if she is sure she will be able to do it. Meethi answers that it will surely happen
Akash wakes up Rani at midnight to wish her happy birthday. Meethi and Maiyya are there too. Rani goes a little quiet seeing Meethi but Meethi talks sweetly to her. Rani gets lots of gifts from all of them and is excited. Tamanna looks at them from outside. Meethi notices her standing at the door, smiling to herself as she looks at the card in her hand. Tamanna leaves that card on the doorstep and walks away. Another card drops on the floor from her drawing book. Meethi gets curious. She picks up both the cards. One is a Happy Birthday card for Rani Didi while the other card says Happy Birthday Tamanna. Meethi realises that it is Tamanna’s birthday as well today. We had only made preps for Rani’s birthday. She is so good that she dint even say or show it that today is her birthday too.There is a birthday celebration at home. Rani’s friends give her gifts. Damini asks her about her sister Tamanna and Meethi but Rani replies that she has no idea. Meethi comes there just then. Rani was happy seeing her but her smile disappears seeing Tamanna dressed in an identical dress and hairstyle.
Meethi is sure that everyone must be surprised seeing Tamanna thus, including Tamanna. Akash comes there holding a cake in his hand. Rani is shocked to know that it is Tamanna’s birthday today too. Akash keeps Tamanna’s birthday cake next to Rani’s. Kids wish Tamanna too. Damini is surprised at the coincidence. Both your daughters share their birthday on the same date. Meethi nods. She takes the kids for cake cutting ceremony.Maiyya suggests letting Rani cut the cake first as she is elder. Meethi tells Rani to go ahead. Take this knife. Rani takes the knife and then looks at Tamanna. Rani throws away her cake in anger. Everyone is in for a shock. I don’t want to celebrate my birthday with anyone. it is just my birthday today and not this Tamanna’s! Damini recalls the time when Iccha had thrown away the cake made by their kids and elders of their chawl. History has started to repeat itself. Meethi scolds Rani as she is crossing her limits. Rani retorts that no one has taught her manners. Only you know manners. Meethi raises her hand to slap Rani but stops it mid air.
Maiyya calls out for Meethi worriedly. Rani says you don’t love me. you love this Tamanna. You have got a new toy right? I wont talk to you ever again. She runs upstairs. Maiyya remarks that it was bound to happen.
Rani comes to her room and cries. No one loves me, not even Meethi Ma. Don’t know why they brought that Tamanna. I don’t need any sister. I only need Meethi Ma and papa. All the kids leave from there. Meethi is in tears. I have lost today Akash. I couldn’t become a good mother. I cannot understand how to make up Rani’s mind. How to explain to her how much I love her! Tamanna tells her not to cry. I don’t like it. please send me back. You are like a fairy to me. you are my fairy mother and dad had told me that fairies never cry. Everything will be fine once I will leave from here. Rani Didi wont be upset and neither will my Pari Ma cry. Epi ends on Meethi’s tearful face.
