Balika Vadhu 2nd November 2013 Written Episode
Shiv and Anandi come to a market for diwali shopping. Anandi says, but we didn’t tell anyone about it. Shiv says, after what happened, I am not sure if they will even celebrate diwali. That is why I want to keep this as a surprise. I just want to see my family happy again and i need your support in that. Anandi says she is always with him and everything will happen the way he wants. They start shopping. On the other hand, Sumi and Bhairo are shopping as well. Shiv sees a necklace and tells Anandi this is their first diwali after marriage so he has to give a gift to her. Anandi says, then I should be giving you a gift as well. Shiv says, you’re with me.. what more gift you can give. They smile and then Shiv takes her with him. Sumi and Bhairo buy a necklace for Ganga on the other side.
Shiv and Anandi are done shopping and leaving the market. Someone fires firecrackers in their way. Anandi and Shiv run from there saving themselves. They both seem to enjoying their time.
Both houses are doing diwali preparations, making rangoli and creating diyas. Sanchi comes down. Ira ignores her, but Anandi tells Sanchi to help her in creating diyas. Dadisa tells Jagya and Ganga (New Ganga) to do diwali puja. Jagya and Ganga come forward and do the puja. On the other hand, Anandi and Shiv do the diwali puja at Shekhar’s house. Both houses perform all other rituals and puja. They then do the arti. Mannu is enjoying himself in the function. Sanchi also participates and does the arti. Dadisa thanks the Goddess for saving her family from all the troubles. She wishes for the same in future and prays for the happiness of all her children. Ganga gives arti to everyone.
Jagya and Ganga take blessings from Dadisa and give them gifts. She gives gifts to other family members as well. Nandu takes Mannu with him and both touch Dadisa’s feet. Dadisa then gives gifts to them as well.
Anandi gives arti to everyone in Shekhar’s house. Ira gives blessings to her and says she will pray for happiness of this house and taunts Sanchi saying she will also ask the God to give some sense to this family’s members. Gifts come from Badi Haveli. Anandi and Ira tell them to wish Badi Haveli people a happy diwali as well. All children take blessings from the elders. Daddu wishes Sanchi a happy diwali with very little interest, while Meenu gives her blessings and wishes a happy diwali as well.. when she touches Ira and Alok’s feet, she doesn’t get any response from them. Everyone leaves from there except Anandi. Anandi wishes Sanchi a happy diwali. Sanchi wishes her as well and then walks away.
Daddu gathers everyone to give gifts. He says its thanks to Shiv and Anandi who did all the shopping themselves. Sanchi is somewhat angry at Anandi and says in her mind, you deserve all the credits after bringing darkness in my life. If I had married to Jagya, then I would be getting all this respect right now. Daddu doesn’t give anything to Sanchi. Anandi asks him, what about Sanchi? Daddu again with no interest gives a gift to her.
Anandi and Shiv talk to Dadisa on the phone. Shiv apologises for what happened recently. Dadisa asks him to forget everything. With the New Year, it will be a new beginning.
Nandu and Mannu are doing fireworks. Ganga is watching them. Jagya comes and holds her hand and they do fireworks together. Both smile at each other.
Shekhars are doing fireworks outside. Shiv tells Anandi, everyone is looking so happy. He credits Anandi. Anandi notices Sanchi’s sad face and says in her mind, but I couldn’t make it a happy diwali for Sanchi. Screen freezes on Anandi’s face.
Voiceover: Once a fight/tension is over, one feels relaxed and happy.
Precap: Anandi tries to convince Shiv and other family members to forgive Sanchi. She tells everyone, if you think your behaviour with her is correct, then I will also want to make myself a part of that punishment. I will lock myself inside a room and won’t be part of any celebration.
