Pari runs towards Mishti and hugs her. Mauli and Ishaan were happy to see them.
Kunal stood in the parking. Mauli greets Pari and leaves to receive her family.
Kunal walk towards the apartments while Mauli was coming towards the parking. They soon confront each other. Mauli’s smile vanishes. Pari and Mishti come running there. Pari introduces Mauli to her Buddy and asks if she found him handsome? Mishti introduces Kunal to her mother. Ishaan comes there complaining who would introduce him? Mishti says he is her Popsy. Mauli joins hands to say happy Diwali to Kunal. Kunal gives a small gift to Ishaan. Ishaan asks Kunal about his wife. Mauli scolds Mishti for her muddy hands and takes her inside to wash them. Mishti takes Pari along with her and requests Mauli to let them play for some more time. Mauli leaves their hands to play. Mamma spots Kunal still standing where he had been. Ishaan takes the kids to light some crackers.
Mamma walks to Kunal, her eyes filled with tears. She grabs Kunal’s hand and takes him home, where she kiss his hands and was happy that he returned. Kunal asks how she is. He could never forget her, he wish to hug her. Mamma cries while hugging him. Kunal says he called her a number of times but couldn’t dare to speak to her. Pari comes to take Pari. Mamma asks Kunal if he is Pari’s…. Kunal nods. Mamma looks towards Pari and recalls she had cursed Nandini once that she never becomes a mother. She kiss Pari’s cheeks with tears in her eyes. Pari asks Mamma and Kunal to come with her downstairs. Kunal asks her to go downstairs, he will be back. Mamma asks Kunal if Nandini is also here. Dida comes outside asking Radika if the guests are here. She spots Kunal there in the hall.
Mauli recalls Kunal and Nandini’s love. How he had ended their relation and denied to accept their child. Ishaan comes to support Mauli and notices she had been distressed. Tears filled Mauli’s eyes but she couldn’t speak much. Pari had run into Mauli’s lap fearful of the crackers. Mauli parts Pari from herself and says she isn’t her mama, she is Mishti’s mama. Ishaani was quizzical. He tells Pari that aunty is afraid of crackers even more than Pari. Pari cheers. Mauli asks Mishti that it is enough now, she must go inside. Mishti says they even have to light the crackers with Pari’s father yet. Mauli was angry. Pari tells Mauli to go and take rest, Mishti isn’t afraid of the crackers. They even have to go for dinner. Mauli takes Mishti inside. Pari asks Ishaan if aunty is so afraid of the crackers.
Dida fumes over Kunal and tells Radika to make him leave. He left finishing each relation. Kunal wipes his tears and looks towards Mamma. Mamma nods towards Kunal. He now walks to Dida and requests her to listen to him. Dida wasn’t ready to listen. Kunal holds her hand. Dida angrily jerks his hand away. His hand fell over a flame on the candle stand. Dida holds it at once out of care. She asks Radika if he has favored them by coming after so long, they were alive even without him and will live in future as well. They will inform him when she has died, he can come on the fourth day then. Kunal holds Dida’s hand saying I missed you a lot. Dida hugs Kunal. She cries and asks Kunal if he never wished to meet her in all these years. She even takes Radika into a hug.
Mishti was being dragged by Mauli. Mishti says Pari and her Papa have come over for Diwali, they even cancelled their party. Why can’t they go for dinner now then? Mauli scolds Mishti asking if Pari’s papa was more important than her. Ishaan comes there and sends Mishti and Pari to play. He then asks Mauli what’s wrong with her, she has been reacting strangely. The invited Mr. Malhotra for dinner, why she doesn’t want to go anymore. Mauli calls Mishti back and argues with Ishaan that she does not want to go to dinner with Kunal and his daughter. Ishaan now understands and confirms if this is Dr. Kunal Malhotra, her ex-husband? Mauli nods painfully. CONTINUE READING NEXT PAGE 2 BELOW
