Anupama while preparing breakfast with Nandini says she is trying to call Pakhi since last night, but her phone is switched off. Nandini says her battery phone’s must have drained, she must have celebrated Vanraj’s birthday and must be sleeping now. Anu says she is right. Vanraj returns from temple and offers prasad to Kavya. He sees Pakhi missing from her bed and asks Kavya where did she go. Kavya says she doesn’t know. He says she should have taken care of her. Kavya says if she should have taken bathe keeping door open, if its her problem if his daughter went out without informing. He says its waste talking to her. She says he shouldn’t then. He calls Pakhi and gets more concerned seeing her phone off. She says she was silent since last night. He asks if she scolded her. She says no. He says she didn’t even wish him happy birthday last night, he doesn’t have her friends’ numbers, etc. She suggests him to call Anu. He calls Anu who picks call thinking its Pakhi.
He says its him. She wishes him happy birthday and asks if Sweety is fine, her phone is switched off and she didn’t speak since yesterday, if he can let her speak to him, if she is at home, etc. He says she is not at home and he doesn’t know where she has gone. Concerned Anu says she will check with her friends and asks him to check around till then. He agrees. Pakhi walks on street reminisces Kavya’s bitter words, Vanraj scolding her, etc. Vanraj, Kavya, Anu, and Nandini make calls in vain. Vanraj says he will go home. Kavya asks what will he do there. He asks her to inform him if she finds Pakhi’s info and leaves. Kavya fumes murmuring she is an idiot to go missing on this day. Anu asks Nandini to handle kitchen while she checks at Pakhi’s best friend’s house in next lane and walks out of house when she sees Pakhi entering, hugs her saying she was very tensed, and asks why did she come without informing papa. She says papa and bestie get disturbed with her presence and walks in. Anu calls Vanraj and informing him that Pakhi came home asks if something happened there that Pakhi is disturbed. He says he will come home and speak.
Family decorates home for Vanraj’s birthday. Baa asks Toshu to call panditji for pooja. Mamaji jokes as usual. Pakhi enters. They all get h happy seeing her. Baa asks when did she come, if she came with papa. Pakhi says she came alone. Bapuji asks so early? Kinjal hugs her and says good she came. Mamaji asks why did she come without Vanraj. Kinjal says she shouldn’t come alone early morning. Pakhi yells if she is jealous, this is also her house. Baa asks why she is getting angry on her bhabhi, she has learnt to argue being with maide ki katori. Pakhi walks to her room. Toshu asks what happened to her. Baa says maide ki katori must have done something. Anu says she will go and check.
Vanraj drives towards home feeling guilty for hurting Pakhi. Kavya calls and asks if he got Pakhi’s information. He says Pakhi returned home. She yells that Pakhi should have informed them, they were so hurt, she is arrogant and irresponsible. He says Pakhi is hurt because of her. She yells if she is responsible for any problem in his house. He says she hurt Pakhi with her bitter words, Pakhi had come to them getting angry on her mom, but Kavya made her uncomfortable. She asks really? He says he couldn’t handle Pakhi for 2 days while Anu is handling house, children, work and him since 25 years; he is going to Pakhi anways. She thinks its better if Pakhi doesn’t return as she will disturb their privacy again.
Anu walks to Pakhi and says she brought her special cold coffee with marshmallows. Pakhi tastes it. Anu asks how is it as she prepared it first time. Pakhi says very nice. Anu thanks god and laughing says she is looking like her papa with her milk moustache. Pakhi laughs and then emotionally hugs her and cries. In living room, Mamaji asks Baa not to worry as Pakhi will console bahu . Bapuji says bahu will console Pakhi. Mamaji says I know, mane remember che and asks if Pakhi is angry on bahu. Baa says when children are hurt, they return to mother. Dolly asks why did she return home, if something happened. Baa says they will know when Vanraj comes. Anu asks Pakhi why did she tell that her papa and Kavya are disturbed because of her. Pakhi says she doesn’t want to wander between here and Kavya’s home after her and papa’s divorce. Anu says she knows its difficult.
Pakhi asks why she is doing this then. Anu says for her, when a husband and wife’s hearts separate and stay together, their fight will burn whole family life burns, its better to stay with broken house than burnt house. Pakhi asks after divorce if papa comes home after marrying Kavya, will Anu stay in her mother’s house; Anu will get a house, but I will wander from this house to her house; she fights with mummy, but she misses her, she wants both papa and mummy as nobody can take their place; bestie cannot be mummy and she needs only her mummy. Anu says she has both mummy and papa, though they will live separately, they will stand united for children; Pakhi is their life and she shouldn’t feel alone. She wiggles and asks to finish coffee or else it will get cold. Pakhi says its already cold coffee, she is sweet and best. Anu pampers her and asks her to bathe and get ready for papa’s birthday. Pakhi thinks papa has different plan.
Vanraj enters home. Baa greets him and gets emotional. Vanraj asks why she cries always. Bapuji jokes when he couldn’t understand her, how will her son understand her. Sanjay, Dolly, Toshu and others wish him happy birthday. He asks about Samar. Toshu says he has gone to Mumbai for dance workshop. Baa says he got a good job in dance school. Vanraj says he is happy seeing his children progressing in life and asks about Pakhi. Baa says she is in her room and looks sad, if something happened. Vanraj says he doesn’t know and will find out. Pakhi walks in corridor when Kinjal stops her and says she really doesn’t know what problem she has with her, she shouldn’t think she has problem with her coming here. Pakhi replies that’s because she will go back as she doesn’t like her staying here.
Kinjal says don’t she think she is crossing the line. Pakhi says truth is always bitter, she garners mummy’s love and all attention in her absence and she becomes daughter from daughter-in-law. Kinjal says she feels sorry for her if she thinks so, everyone in this house loves her and don’t want to hurt her, but if she doesn’t tell truth, it won’t be good for her. Kavya asks what truth. Kinjal says she herself is responsible for all her problems, she is not happy even after doing whatever she likes because she thinks only of herself. Anu walks out. Vanraj asks if Pakhi is fine. Anu says she spoke to him and its better if he also speaks to her.
Kinjal continues confronting Pakhi. She says papa made a mistake, but she punished mummy; she herself left home and went to papa, but when Kavya didn’t treat her well, she returned home; its understandable, but why is she venting out her anger on family, which is unacceptable; her problem is not Kinjal or mummy, but herself; she doesn’t think much before speaking without thinking others may feel bad, they forgive her thinking her as small, but enough now; she and mummy love her, but she will not back off from saying her bitter truth as she is not too small not to understand difference between right or wrong; its up to her to say here or at Kavya’s house, but if she stays here, she should make sure that she shouldn’t hurt mummy again; its better she stays at Kavya’s house as everyone are selfish there like her who think of only themselves. Pakhi stands shocked seeing Kinjal’s anger side.
Vanraj calls her and asks why did she come here without informing him. She apologizes and hugs him. He smiles and says now its looks his birthday now. Anu asks Baa to ask Vanraj if he will stay back for party after pooja as Kavya must have planned something. Baa scolds that she is worried more about her sautan than saas. Kinjal touches Vanraj’s feet and wishes him happiy birthday. Baa tells Vanraj let us finish pooja and play video game. Kinjal asks if she plays videogame. Baa says she plays videogame on her son’s birthday. Mamaji jokes that she is unfit to play even ludo. Toshu challenges Baa. Baa says they will play game and party in the evening. Kavya messages Vanraj asking when is he coming. Pakhi informs family that papa is going out with bestie Pakhi. Baa gets sad and says her son’s birthday is like Janmastami for her and when Kanhaiya is absent, how can she celebrate festival. She starts crying.
Anu asks her to let him live his life the way he wants. Baa emotionally says she lets him live his life for 364 days and just asks 1 day; he left home leaving her in shock, even then she agreed for his happiness; he and Anu decidced for divorce and she kept quiet; earlier it was bahu’s right and then maide ke ki katori Kavya’s, what about a mother’s right, etc. Bapuji says everything changed over time. Baa says her son hadn’t change since he was born and changed after maide ke katori came in his life. Kavya calls Vanraj repeatedly. Bapuji asks her to stop crying and send her son happily. Baa continues speaking emotionally and says the only she got happy was when he cried for the first time, she is happy with his happiness since then, etc. Family tries to console him. Vanraj sings Dekhsakta Hoon Main Kuch Bhi Hote Hue…song and wiping her tears asks if she will celebrate his birthday crying. She excitedly asks if he will not go. He says they will celebrate their birthday together. Pakhi asks if he will not go with bestie. He says no, he will celebrate birthday here. Baa asks to call pandit soon. Toshu says he told he will come himself. Bapuji calls Pandit. Toshu says he will select kurta for papa. Vanraj walks to his room and his phone switches off due to battery drain.
Baa happily bakes cake for Vanraj singing a song. Anu says she looks cute when she is happy. Baa asks if she doesn’t look cute when she is not happy. Anu says she didn’t say that. Baa laughs and asks her to decorate cake. Toshu selects kurtas for Vanraj. Vanraj says his son has grown up now to select kurta for him while he used to select dresses for him during his childhood. Toshu smiles. They share an old story where Toshu plans a surprise gift for Vanraj and asks spelling of surprise from him. Toshu says he didn’t know to hide surprises then. Vanraj says he doesn’t know even now as he saw his surprise gift box; says he doesn’t need gift but his friendship and requests if he will forget everything and become his friend again. Toshu reminisces the event and hugs him. Anu notices that passing by. Vanraj asks friends> Toshu says friends and asks him to wear kurta soon. Vanraj thinks Kavya must be waiting for him; he needs to call, inform and calm her before she comes here.
Kavya calls Pakhi and yells at her for going without informing and says if she has to continue it, she should stay there itself. Pakhi asks what else? Kavya asks, in shock, what? and asks to give phone to her papa as his phone is switched off. Pakhi says he is busy getting ready for pooja and will celebrate birthday at home, So Kavya can go to resort alone; Kavya didn’t want to take her to resort and celebrate birthday with papa alone, so better luck next time. Anu hearing her conversation scolds her to behave with elders, takes phone and informs Kavya that she will ask Vanraj to call her. Kavya disconnects call angrily. Pakhi says she knows attitude unnecessarily. Pakhi says when they love someone, they look at their happiness, her papa’s happiness is with Kavya, so its better she accepts Kavya. Pakhi says she is not great like her, earlier Kavya separated papa from mummy and now her, she will not her succeed. Anu thinks children don’t share even their toys with others, how will they share their parents. Kavya thinks V chose whom he wants to celebrate his birthday with and is doing whatever he wants, now she will do whatever she wants and wishes V good luck for his birthday and new relationship which will start between them from today.
Anu gets ready for birthday party and while writing Vanraj’s name on cake seeks Kinjal and Nandini’s help. She says she knows what they are thinking; her relationship has ended with Vanraj, but his relationship didn’t end with others, so she cannot ruin other’s happiness. They both say she is an inspiration and they both learnt a lot from her. Samar video calls Nandini. Anu speaks to him and asks him to wish Vanraj. He says he doesn’t want to, she insists and he agrees and says he is missing celebration with family. She asks to come then. He says he will be back soon.
Mamaji and Bapuji joke with each other. Vanraj walks out getting ready and looking at Anu reminisces their happier days. He says a few things remain even after they end. Anu says relationship broke down and habit will end, he should call Kavya as she is worried. Guruji enters. Baa greets him and introduces him as their Kulguru who performs all her family pooja. She asks Kinjal and Toshu to touch his feet. He blesses them to be together always. Vanraj and Anu touch his feet next, and he blesses them same. Kavya reaches and gets angry reminiscing Anu slapping ehr and kicking her out of house. Anu informs family that Kavya has come. Toshu takes Guruji in. Kavya tries to enter in and Baa warns her to dare not enter her house. Vanraj drags Kavya out.
Meenu asks why bad aunty returns always. Pakhi says Meenu is right, Kavya is selfish. Sanjay asks Meenu not to misbehave with elders. Baa says children always speak right and scolds Anu that she lets Kavya in always and if something happens today, she will not tolerate.
