Kavya tells Vanraj that she was never insulted the way she was insulted today. Vanraj asks what he can do. She insists to reply to Anupama’s divorce notice as its not a news paper to read and keep it aside, Anu has challenged him. Anu informs Samar that Vanraj shouted at her and insulted her in office. Samar reacts. Anu says it was her mistake, she should have shut his mouth when he shouted her years ago; she kept silent due to sanskars, peace at home, and patni dharm; then she got habituated to be silent and Vanraj shouting at her; during wedding pheras, wife does pheras in front for 3 pheras adn then during 4th pheras husband comes front and wife goes behind and then never comes in front; wife keeps voice low and stands behind; she consoles herself when husband gets angry and never speak in high tone with her husband; her silence’s age elongates than her life; she learnt to reply but after her relationship ended.
Samar asks not to blame herself for her upbringing as she was taught that to be silent and anyone would feel that silently crying tolerating husband’s nonsense is greatness. Anu says his mother learnt to stand up for herself but that doesn’t mean she will push someone down, even she doesn’t want to push him down and wants separation in court peacefully without any drama.
Kavya provokes Vanraj that she insulted him in office and even in divorce notice saying she doesn’t need any alimony from her, she is showing her greatness even here and she is sick. Vanraj reminisces Anu’s similar words and says he needs to strongly reply her.
Baa panics seeing grocery bill. Anu offers her tea. Baa asks if she saw the bill. Anu says yes, expenses have increased, but by god’s grace she, Toshu, and Kinjal are earning now. Baa says that doesn’t mean they will fly 2000 rs notes and asks if she brought chocolate corn flakes for Pakhi. Anu says yes she will feed her once she returns home someday. Mamaji with Bapuji walks in asking Samar when will he teach him hip hop dance. Kinjal returns home. Baa yells what did she do on her job’s first day. Anu offers her water and asks how was her first day. Kinjal says good. Baa asks if maide ki katori Kavya said something to her. Kinjal says Kavya is also working under same project. Samar asks if Kavya will work under her. She nods yes. Baa dances hearing that in happiness. Toshu returns. Anu offers him water and asks how was his first day. He says good, mom has given him responsibility to open Dave Coaching Centers in Mumbai. Samar asks if he will go to Mumbai. Toshu says yes, he cannot work sitting here. Kinjal looks at him.
Kavya introduces Vanraj to Ahemedabad’s best divorce lawyer Rohit Sethi. Vanraj says he had just heard about him and today met. Rohit says people wouldn’t like to meet him due to his profession. Back at home, Baa asks Toshu if he will go away from them. Toshu says not yet, still its a planning phase. Baa asks Anu if she will not feel bad if her son goes away. Anu says she will, but will not stop him as she wants her sons to fly high, she will feel bad if Toshu goes out and will feel more bad if Toshu’s dreams are not fulfilled. Baa asks if he has to take nagin Rakhi’s help for that. Anu says just like she is important to Kinjal, Rakhi is important to Toshu. Baa yells what kind of a woman she is, she doesn’t care if someone leaves home. Rohit tells Vanraj that Kavya briefed him about his divorce case. Vanraj shows him Anu’s sent notice. Rohit says he already read it and asks if he really wants to divorce his wife. Vanraj reminisces all the incidents. Kavya says he has to take divorce as there is nothing left. Vanraj says he doesn’t want to as there is a lot left between them, their 25-year-old memories and children, he can be angry on her but cannot leave her. Rohit asks again if he really wants divorce from his wife.
Baa continues yelling that Toshu thought of leaving them, but Anu broke whole house. Bapuji asks her not to blame Anu. Kinjal says Anu is right that shifting to another city should be their mutual decision and not only his. Toshu shouts if she thought before taking over papa’s job without even thinking how papa would feel. Baa backs him and yells at Anu that her children are following her. Anu says her situation was different and she doesn’t want a similar situation between Toshu and Kinjal. Kinjal says they need to talk. Toshu says yes we need to and walks to his room. Anu goes to prepare coffee for them. Baa yells that because of Anu, Vanraj left house and now Toshu and Kinjal, she broke the house and now Vanraj will not keep quiet. Vanraj says yes to Rohit. Kavya gets happy hearing that. Rohit says he will start his divorce proceedings along with Kavya and Anirudh’s. Vanraj says he needs to reply to Anu’s divorce notice. Rohit says don’t worry about that. Kavya thanks Rohit.
Kinjal confronts Toshu that he is becoming like papa and ignoring and yelling at her like Papa used used to with Mummy. Toshu shouts why she is overreacting and when she can take decisions why can’t he. She asks how can she leave house and run behind him. He asks then why did she elope with him. She says they were thinking only about themselves then, which was wrong, now they are married and cannot stay away from family peacefully. He says people stay in different cities, what is wrong if they dream about about a better life, he wants move ahead. She asks it means he wants to leave dear ones behind. He says he is just doing his job. She says this also means he is forcing her to quit her job. He shouts so what, Dave Coaching Center belongs to her. She says thank you for reminding her.
He says everyone in this house are taking their decision and what is wrong if he does same, why she wants to become an ideal wife like mummy than a good wife. She asks if mummy was not a good wife. He says that is not a point, point is she wasn’t like this before. She says even he has changed. He says they need to change. She asks if love also changes. He says there is a time to go to Mumbai and they will discuss about it later. She says fine, now she realized that her mom was right and she was wrong, but when mom is doing wrong now he is thinking her right; she doesn’t know about personal life, he will do his best in professional life. He says she will do best in both.
Samar walks to Anu and asks if she will handle if Toshu goes away. She nods yes. He asks what if he goes. She turns crying. He says she is crying hearing that and even he is crying. She says when children go, they want to leave the house, a piece of mother’s heart goes away if they go, but her whole heart will go away if he goes, she wants him to move ahead and succeed in life, but if he goes she will feel as if her life is going; she will not stop him though as Bapuji says there is different between love and infatuation, one that is free is love and holding forcefully is infatuation. He hugs her emotionally and says Anupama I hate tears re. She laughs saying pagal chokra/mad boy.
Vanraj gets his sling removed at hospital. Kavya thanks god that its gone. He says he feels pain though and says Rohit had called and they need meet him to sign divorce papers. She says she has some work, so if he has go in a cab. He agrees and calls taxi. Rakhi stops her car and taunts Vanraj that good his sling is out and asks Kavya if she didn’t go to office as she has important presentation. Kavya stands shocked. Rakhi says she is maa and not Anupama, she will obviously find out everything related to her daughter; she taunts Vanraj that she forgot that he lost his job, she feels sorry for him that he lost his house and job, he must be feeling more bad seeing her daughter in his place.
Vanraj asks Rakhi to do something new instead of her same old taunts and asks if she doesn’t get bored with it. Rakhi taunts back saying she can understand his frustration as his wife threw a divorce notice on his face, he must be in a seeing a simple housewife Anu taking such a big step, its shocking for even her; she thought if he leaves Anu, she cannot tolerate it and would die in sorrow, but she will take revenge from him and a cow has become injured tiger who will not spare him; she knew that Kinjal is going for interview to his company, but she didn’t stop him; she even sat on his chair yesterday; he must be thinking how did she find out about it, she has her sources all around; a masala grinding woman has grinded a chutney out of him; she heard Anu just asked divorce without any alimony, Anu will take revenge for his each heinous act whether she ask alimony or not.
Vanraj says even he hasn’t worn bangles and will reply to each Anu’s attack. Rakhi taunts that he is very naive and doesn’t have a bit of scope in this case, woman are always pitied and Anu will become a victim with her tears and Vanraj/Kavya will become villians and society will spit on them and they won’t be able to show their face to anyone, Anu will become a star of everyone’s eyes and a messiah of husband-tortured women, he never knows she may become a political party leader as she gives speeches well; she can see only darkness for them, only Vanraj has lost a job and Anu may get Kavya also out of job and they may not even have money to pay a lawyer. She finally says she spoke what she wanted to and they can leave now. Vanraj stands tensed reminiscing his nameplate on floor.
After annual function preparation, students tell Anu that they enjoyed a lot and ask if they will win. She says winning or losing is in god’s hands, they just need to perform their best. They say she is so cool. Pakhi stands jealous noticing that. Anu noticing her sees off students and rushing to Pakhi tries to pamper her and then offers her burger. Pakhi stands silently. Anu keeps burger in her bag and asks if she is happy at Kavya’s house as she doesn’t have Samar, grandparents, mother, and Kinjal there; they all remember her. Pakhi says she is fine. Anu says house is empty without her and asks how is her practice going, if Kavya is teaching her well. Pakhi reminisces requesting Kavya to teach her dance as they didn’t even select a song yet. Kavya says she is very tensed as Anu has sent Kinjal over her who troubles her a lot, so she cannot manage. Anu asks if someone is sad. Pakhi walks away. Anu prays god to keep Pakhi happy.
At home, Baa says she was happy earlier thinking Kinjal hasn’t gone on her mom, but if she had gone it would have been good as she would have made Kavya insane with her taunts. Anu asks why should they think bad about someone, what will they get by giving pain to someone, and prays god that Kavya stays happy in her house and they stay happy in their house. She walks picking sauce bottles and drops them seeing Vanraj coming in front of her suddenly. Vanraj says she wanted a reply to her divorce notice and now he has brought now. He shouts that she says she doesn’t want anything and just peaceful divorce and on the other side she is showing that she is tortured by her husband and wants to prove her greatness by not asking alimony; as if he is destroyed, met with an accident and lost his job because of her curse; she is acting great and on the other side her plans to insult and destroy him; on the other side her arrogance and stubbornness; she wants to prove that she left him instead.
She says she cannot understands what he is saying. He asks her to read the notice in front of everyone. Anu opens notice and looks at it. He laughs and says he forgot that she doesn’t know English. Samar takes notice and stands shocked reading it. Vanraj smirks at him. Anu asks what is written in it. Vanraj says whatever written is truth. Anu and Baa insist to read. Samar says its written that Anu is.. Kinjal reads notice next and angrily looks at Vanraj. Anu asks again what is written in it. Vanraj asks if she will or he should. Kinjal says its written that Anu is mentally unstable, she gets panic attacks and staying with her is risky for his life, so he needs divorce from her. Family stands shocked heafring that.
Bapuji asks Vanraj how can he stoop so low, he taught him to maintain his decency even in anger. Baa says she supported him always but not in this matter. Toshu asks what is this. Kinjal says this is nonsense, how can call mummy insane to satisfy his ego. Vanraj says its between his and his wife, so they shouldn’t interfere. He asks Anu if she remembers how she used to get panic attacks repeatedly, how she sat behind a swinger at midnight, how she got panic attack during their second wedding night, he himself saw her getting panic attacks and don’t know how many times she would have got panic attacks, even she knows that she is mentally unstable and repeats if she agrees or not. Anu shouts yes she gets panic attacks; she hid behind swinger and her hands were shivering in fear. He says she agrees then. She says its true and there is a reason behind it.
He asks what is it. She shouts Vanraj Shah, he is the reason for her fear, a woman shivers when the ground under her slips and his betrayal slipped the ground under her; she considered him as god, but he betrayed her; she became what he wanted to; this story may be bitter, but its ending will not be bitter; his story was cheap, but now its disgusting. Vanraj says he replies he is questioned; she insulted him in his house, office and everywhere; now she will realize what is insult. Anu says she has suffered insult for 25 years and suffocation and wanted to live freely, but he cannot even tolerate that; if a 25-year-old sandalwood tree is cut, it spreads perfume even then, but nothing is left here; a woman ties many knots around her which she cannot open even if she wants, but his heinous act opened all her knots and a hidden feeling left in the corner of her house for him died today, now everything is finished. She continues that good he showed his heinous face in front of everyone, now Toshu will not blame her, Baa will realize that her son is unfit to even for hatred.
She is thankful for clearing her hurdle and replying to her divorce notice; he tried to throw dirt on her, but when a woman, wife, and mother’s heart is hurt, she becomes fire and dirt cannot stay on fire; he can do whatever he wants and stoop low, she will reply to his each answer in front of everyone in court; he left his house and she left her fear; she thought this story will end peacefully, but if a few more pagers are to be added, she is ready for it as she is different now and he should remember it. Family watches them silently. Vanraj says if she is different, then he is not earlier Vanraj, now there won’t be any hesitation but battle.
