Dadisa looks lovingly at anandi for being so mature and tells her that when her husband was with her, the whole world was filled with colours and that he never allowed any trouble on her. She says that she used to be very happy, not because she had everything but because she had the love of her husband. She says that she used to watch the road from the rooftop, just to get a first glimpse, so that she would be very relieved. She says that she used to tease him bery much, and he used to say that he would leave one day. And says that one day, he did leave, and such that she didnt even tease nor even get a chance to apologize. Dadisa says that she too has a very important talk with anandi. She says that today anandi’s trust on jagiya has won, and she has lost, even though she is blodd related to jagiya, and wants to apologize for doubting her. Anandi says that there’s no win or loss, but happiness of this family has won, and she wasnt alone in supporting jagiya, and ganga too supported her in believing that jagiya would return, and so he did respecting their faith in them, releived from every pain, mistake of his life. Anandi begins to take leave and excuses herself to go as shiv would soon come. Dadisa hopes that this happiness continues and gives her 500 rs. to give at the temple.
Ganga offers to press her feet, despite dadisa asking her to rest, saying that through this she would get some blessings from her too, and she wont want to lose this oppurtunity. Dadisa commends her for being so thoughtful and mature despite her age, like anandi had said. She says that maturiy has been brought by the times that she faced. dadisa asks how could she have the faith in jagiya, when she didnt even know him. She says that, not knwoing was the exact reason due to which she couldnt doubt him, as she knew only the better aspect of his personality, which grieves even for the strangers like her. dadisa looks at her admirably.
Location: Shiv’s office and temple
Shiv gets an official call which asks her to leave instantly for an improtant work.
Shiv calls up anandi, but Anandi cancels shiv’s call thinking happily that now she ont talk to him until she confesses whats in her heart for him. She meets another aunt from the village, who tells her that there was an official letter today that they couldnt read. But since she went after marrying, they too lost track of studying. Ananadi thinks that since shiv is here for another 2 years, she could resume teaching instead of spending time at home.
The aunt asks about jagiya and about the girl ganga, too.
She says that getting ganga home was not a right option, as he should have just treated her, not brought her home, like a guest. She says that its not right that a married lady is in the haveli, due to jagiya. She says that the villagers are talking stuff behind his back. Anandi tells that ganga was brutally totured by ratan, and therefore they thought of the security point of view of ganga and hence kept her in the haveli. But she, being orthodox thinks that this just might escalate the situation. Ananadi says that since times immemorial, women have been tortured, and if someone wants to help them with a pure heart, they should support them, rather than ridicule them and disbelieve their intentions. She excuses herself, for praying in the temple.
She goes inside and keeping the 500 rs, that dadisa had given in the puja thali, prays and thanks her for getting jagiya back and asks for strength to be able to bear out her heart. The priest gives her the prashad and she leaves happily.
She again cancels shiv’s call.
Location: On the road
Anandi, while in the jeep, thinks that today she would tell shiv what she feels for her, as its the apt time and she has the goddess’s blessings too.
Location: Shiv’s house in jaitsar
As anandi reaches the house, she finds shiv going away in his jeep, tensed. She calls out to him, but he doesnt listen and drives away. When she goes inside, meenu tells her that shiv had gone since the CM had called, and then he would return the next day. Anandi says that atleast he could have waited till she arrived. Sanchi gets this oppurtunity to lash at her saying, that he couldnt have waited for her, when the CM had called for her. She says that anandi found dealing with her old family, and her ex husband’s problems more important than picking up shiv’s phone. Meenu reprimands her not to talk like that, while anandi explains that she was at the temple, hence didnt take the call. she excuses herself and goes inside.
Anandi looks at the photo, thinking that if she had the slightest notion that shiv would go like this, she would definitely have picked up the phone and gone home. she says that she went mad thinking about surprising him, ang instead of making him happy, she made him sad. She apologizes for cancelling the phone like that and thinks that she would say sorry right now. She tries shiv’s no, but shiv at the petrol station, where its mandatory to switch off cell phones, cancels her phone, upsetting her all the more. The screen freezes on her tensed face.
Underlying message: After love blossoms in the heart, the pain of seperation becomes unbearable, and the partner is extremely restless.
Precap: While anandi is getting ready for sleeping, shiv comes from behind, and cuddles her from behind, while she smiles shyly.
