Now that I think I have realised we have been wrong. How did we become so selfish? How could we not see that it is only Ganga who can give all happiness to Sagar? She loves him selflessly. We must have done something really good in the last birth which is why Ganga came to our house as Ganga’s kavach. Amma ji gets thinking. She thinks of the childhood time when Ganga had put vermilion in her forehead in Sagar’s name. Ganga is unmarried as of now. Bahu is right. She has saved Sagar always like his shield as if she was born to do that only. No, how can I be so selfish for Sagar! That girl also had a family. She was also close to someone. How can I force her to become a sacrifice for Kaal Bhairav? By the way, how does it matter? She has done it in the past too. Ganga will do sacrifice for Kaal Bhairav this time, even if with her life.
Ganga and Sagar run around the house like kids. Pulkit notices the rope still there. He unties it. All family members get emotional as they see him do it. I rectified my mistake. There is no place for this rope in this house now. He keeps it in his mother’s feet. Supriya smiles. Amma ji says you took such a big burden off our shoulder. NIru will be so happy when he will be back. The rift between a father and son is over. Pulkit says will he be able to forgive me. Madhvi says you always used to say that your father could never understand you or that he loves Sagar more than you. A father always loves his first kid more. He was this strict with you so you could do something in life. He has made a mistake though by overlooking your dream. He has been punished already for it. Pulkit apologizes. I couldn’t understand him. I made the mistake. I am sorry. Amma ji thinks Janvi’s spirit left their family after Baba’s yagya. Everything is falling in place. Pulkit hugs Sagar as well. Amma ji worries for Sagar. He has to be free from Markesh Yog. Amma ji’s phone rings. She goes in her room to talk secretively to Baba.
Baba reminds her she does not have time. If you are unable to bring unmarried woman till tonight then there will be destruction. He disconnects the call before she can express her worry. She peeks outside at Ganga.
Amma ji thinks I really don’t have time. I have to take Ganga to cemetery tonight itself. Will she agree? Bahu, Pulkit and Sagar should not know anything about it. She hears Ganga telling Maharaj ji that she is taking milk for Amma ji. Ganga brings milk for her, just the way she likes it. She gives medicine to her as well. Amma ji says you still remember everything. Ganga nods. How will I not? We were away from each other for a while but I dint forget anything. My feelings for you dint change. Amma ji asks her if she still feels the same way about Sagar too. Ganga goes quiet.
Sagar and Pulkit come there just then so Ganga gets saved. Sagar shows the sketch to his Dadi. He was the guy right? We have seen him only once but you know him well. I am only confirming it from you. Amma ji denies knowing him. She gets upset upon hearing that Niru has filed a complaint against her Baba. I tried to make you all understand he is a great Baba. No one listens to an old woman. Sagar reasons that he is using her emotions against her. He has done fraud with you. Amma ji says you don’t understand anything. Ganga seconds Sagar. He used your weakness for his good. It is important to teach him a lesson. Don’t trust anyone just like that. Tantra mantra has not done anything. Babu and Mehri Didi have saved Sagar, and not that fake Baba. Sagar tells his Dadi not to fall for any Baba. I am
fine. Both the brothers leave. Ganga gives medicines to Amma ji. Amma ji thinks how to make them understand. Sagar will be fine after this puja. Ganga also does not trust Baba. She will tell Sagar if I say anything to her. All three of them will stop me from doing maha yagya. There is no time. Show me some way Lord. There is very little time left.
Madhvi brings fruits for Supriya. She says I am not feeling like eating but Madhvi makes her sit. Think about your baby. Mother needs double food in this condition. The baby will be healthy if you are. You don’t know what happiness you will bring in this house. Ganga nods. You will become Dadi, even though you don’t look like one. When I came to this house I childhood, I felt that she is some angel, pure and with a big heart. I always used to think of my Maiyya as I used to look at her. My Maiyya would have been just like her if she was there. Madhvi gets emotional (feels bad for what she did to Ganga). She says you became a daughter but I could never become your Maiyya. I got so blind in my son’s love that I couldn’t see anything. I couldn’t even see where my daughter’s happiness was. I loved you so much yet I couldn’t understand anything. Whatever happened, I trusted you always. I knew nothing will happen to my son if Ganga said nothing will happen to him. Ganga tells her not to say anything further or she will cry. They share an emotional hug. Amma ji coughs to distract them. Someone take care of this oldie too now if mother daughter reunion is done. Did anyone feel how I felt alone? Ganga will stay in my room from today onwards. She asks Ganga why you are staring. Do you feel problem in taking care of me? Ganga denies. you said something to me with a right after so many days that I couldn’t believe it for a second. Amma ji suggests her to discuss all this in her room. Shall I take her with me Bahu? Madhvi nods. She is your Ganga. You can take her with you wherever you wish to. Amma ji takes Ganga with her. Madhvi is happy that happiness has returned in her house after so long. Hope no evil eyes fall on us now.
Ganga massages Amma ji’s feet. Your toes have swollen. Amma ji says it would have shown effect if you had done it. Ganga replies that she could have asked her. I was upset but I would have still done it. Amma ji is in a fix. She loves me so much and I am risking her life? The very next moment she tells herself against it. There isn’t much time to think. Baba said I have to bring an unmarried girl to cemetery tonight. I will have to take Ganga to cemetery somehow. Amma ji tells Ganga it is enough. Ganga gives her milk but Amma ji tells her to drink it tonight. Ganga looks at her. Amma ji understand she wants lots of mishri in it. You have done it since childhood. Ganga goes to keep the mat aside when Amma ji mixes something in milk. Ganga drinks milk.
Sagar isn’t sleepy. Pulkit asks him what happened. Sagar says I was thinking about papa. He has worked so hard to become a judge. He had to resign today because of me. I feel so guilty. Pulkit says life will become difficult if you will blame yourself for everything all the time. Dad did it all on his own. I guess he has been called to Delhi for some special reason. I hope he gets his position back. They don’t see Baba and his accomplice heading towards their house from above as they talk.
Amma ji checks on Ganga. She is unconscious. She is alive. I was scared I might have added extra medicine. She hears the knock on the window. Baba says police is after me. My son has filed an FIR. Amma ji says sorry to him on Niru’s behalf. He asks about the girl. She shares that the girl is unconscious. How will I take her to cemetery? They agree to help her. Amma ji goes out stealthily without making any noise to open the door for them. She points at Ganga as soon as they are inside the room. How do we take her out at night? It will flop if anyone sees us. Baba eyes Ganga cheaply and also notices the bag of money there. He takes out a sack. Baba and his accomplice take an unconscious Ganga away. Maharaj ji wakes u with a start as they make a noise. Pulkit and Sagar come downstairs hearing his voice. Baba and his accomplice wait at a corner. Amma ji says I forgot my medicine. There was no other noise. She sends the kids back. Maharaj ji says you could have asked me to bring it. Amma ji points out that he was sleeping. You left the door open too. He remembers closing it. She puts it on his old age. Sleep now. He goes to lie down. She signals Baba to leave when she finds her way clear. She also goes with them.
Amma ji refuses to leave Ganga along but Baba insists that Ganga will have to do it by herself only. She wants to go but he tells her against it. I assure you everything will be fine.
Pulkit tells Sagar not to worry. Everything will be fine. Let’s sleep. Sagar nods.
Baba tells his accomplice that that old woman was not leaving them. She too wanted to come. Somehow we succeeded. They put Ganga on a cart and begin to wheel it. We will enjoy with the girl and then shift to some other location with the money. Sagar notices them from upstairs. He gets curious. Pulkit points torch at Baba’s face. Pulkit and Sagar recognize him. It is the same Baba. They shout at him to stop but they don’t stop wheeling the cart even after seeing Sagar and Pulkit. They ask Maharaj ji to open the door. All the family members gather there. Madhvi tells Supriya to check if anything is missing. Amma ji gets tensed.
Sagar and Pulkit chase that Baba who stops at a dark spot to hide. Sagar and Pulkit are near the cart. Baba and his accomplice are hiding right behind it. Sagar and Pulkit look around with the help of the torch but find nothing. Sagar sees the sack on the cart. The battery gets over just then. Pulkit asks him to come. There is nothing here. Sagar stops to look at the cart.
Sagar is looking at the cart when Pulkit comes back. What happened? Sagar says I feel something is here. Pulkit says we saw everything here. There is nothing. We must not lose them. They go in the other direction. Baba and his accomplice take the cart.
Amma ji is all tensed. Madhvi wonders where both her sons are. They should have caught that Baba by now. Sagar and Pulkit come home. They share that they couldn’t find him. Maharaj ji has checked everything. Everything is in place. Amma ji says you all must be mistaken. Madhvi asks Maharaj ji if he checked Amma ji’s room. Amma ji tries to divert them as they might question her as to where Ganga is. She speaks of Ganga which creates a doubt in Sagar’s mind. Sagar says so much happened but Ganga is still sleeping. Something is surely wrong. Amma
ji does not let him go in. She sends him back from the door only. Everyone goes to their rooms. Maharaj ji closes the main door. Amma ji heaves a sigh of relief as she comes to her room.
Baba is in cemetery. Both the men are drinking alcohol. Baba looks at Ganga lustily. They are also having hookah. Baba closes in on Ganga and removes the sack from her body. He caresses her head and face.
Sagar wakes up with a start. Ganga?
Ganga begins to gain conscious. He is startled. His accomplice says should I come if you cannot do it. Baba tells him to stay put. He heads back to the sitting area. Ganga looks around but it is all blurry. She holds her head as she sits up. Baba comes back to her. He holds her face but she takes his hands off even in her semi conscious state. Who are you? Leave me. He slaps her to teach her a lesson. He holds her again while she tries to break free. She pushes him because of which he falls down. He gets angry. She gets down from the cart. He begins to walk towards her. She throws dirt in his eyes. He shouts in pain. His accomplice asks him what happened. Ganga tries to go away but stumbles in her step. Baba is following her. He sends his accomplice after Ganga. Ganga begins to run.
Sagar is all restless in his room. He goes downstairs. He knocks at the door of his Dadi’s room. She asks him what happened. he wants to meet Ganga. She says Ganga is sleeping. He insists upon meeting her once. I feel there is some problem. She stays put. She is a girl. You cannot see a girl in sleeping condition. I am telling you. Your Ganga wont run away at night. He leaves reluctantly. Amma ji apologizes to him mentally. I am doing it all for you and for your happy life. You have Markesh Yog. I am doing it all for that only.
Sagar is back in his room. He lies down.
Amma ji thinks yagya will be over by now. She calls Baba. Baba sends his accomplice after Ganga and picks the call. He complains to her that that girl left the yagya in between! Amma ji is shocked. Why? Baba says I don’t know. Ask her if she comes home. He ends the call. Amma ji worries for Ganga. What if something happens to her? I shouldn’t have sent her alone. I will go to find her. She covers herself with a shawl as she goes out of her room stealthily.
Ganga continues running. Her state is still not good but she does not stop. She hides behind a truck. The men go in different direction to search for her. She resumes running. She finally lands in Amma ji’s arms. Amma ji hugs her.
Sagar gets up again feeling uneasy. He comes to his Dadi’s room but she isn’t there. He tries waking Ganga but finds pillows on the bed instead. Where is Ganga? Where is Dadi? Where can they both go at this hour? He notices his Dadi hugging Ganga and taking her inside with her somehow. He goes out. Amma ji is shocked to see him. He finds Ganga in an unconscious state. Where are you bringing her from? Amma ji makes him take her to her room. What to tell him now?
Sagar puts Ganga on the bed and covers her with a duvet. He goes out to talk to his Dadi next. Tell me what the matter is. You said Ganga is sleeping inside. Where did you bring her from then? Did you see her condition? She is so hurt. Amma ji says I dint want to tell you anything but I had to. I was also shocked to realise it. Ganga has a habit of sleep walking. Sagar is surprised. Amma ji adds Ganga has slept in my room since childhood. He asks her if it happens every night. Amma ji denies. it has decreased nowadays. I always used to lock the room from outside. She sees weird dreams many times. She tells me about it. He says you could have told me earlier. I would have taken her to doc. Amma ji lies that she took Ganga to Vaid ji. he said it will get better with age. I give her the medicine. Don’t say anything to Ganga. It can affect her badly as well. This is the reason I dint tell anyone about it. He looks confused. She makes him promise her that he wont tell anyone. He suggests taking Ganga to a doc. Amma ji nods. You look tired. Sleep now. I am also her Dadi like you. I will look after her. He goes. Amma ji thinks of Baba’s words. Forgive me for lying. One has to lie so many times to hide one truth. You (Lord) know I am doing it all for Sagar.
