The FB shows all the scenes. She tells how Niranjan tried to kill her and Shlok saved her in nick of the time. Kalindi cries.

She says you did the right thing, I can’t believe Niranjan can be such a bad man.
She says why did you not think to tell me once, I m your Aai, if you get hurt, I get hurt. You have bear everything alone, you should have called us, we would have come to help you, you grew up and you bear all pain alone. She cups Astha’s face in her hands and cries.

Kalindi says we trust you, we will support you, come home with us now. Shlok looks at Astha. Astha says we can’t come Aai, try to understand. Kalindi asks why, you guys have grown up and will decide alone, you have to come, else we will come here and stay, you decide now. Astha says why are you adamant. Shlok asks Avdhoot to understand, as he wants to make a new identity, he has to struggle. Avdhoot says you are right Shlok, we are with you, and Kalindi this time is to think by mind, not heart, don’t be adamant. Kalindi says fine, atleast come home with us for some time.
Astha says yes, we will come, but you don’t stop us there. Kalindi says fine, come. Astha says have tea, sit. Sid comes to Renuka and asks about the bank scheme. Renuka says your wife has told you this. He says she is worried for you, such people are fraud, village was small and everyone knew each other and had trust, but this is city and you don’t know everyone. Renuka gets angry on Jyoti for making Sid against her. She says all women have taken the scheme, all are not fools. Sid pacifies her and says he has seen such things, so he was alerting her. She says wait for six months, then I will show Jyoti when money gets double. He says fine, if you think this, it will happen. He leaves.

Avdhoot asks them to sit and he will come in some time. Astha says Shlok, we won’t stay for long time, we came here to keep mum’s heart as she is stunned seeing all this. He says yes, this state is for few days, then everything will be fine, you won’t face this pain again. She says I trust you more than myself. Avdhoot brings their fav sweet and asks them to have it.
Kalindi cries telling Ajju everything. She says I m feeling bad being unable to do anything, what did Astha do, that Niranjan did this, how can he try to burn my Astha. Ajju says don’t worry, we are here to help them. Kalindi says they are not ready to take our help. Ajju says we will help them by our way, lets make their fav food, come. They sit for dinner. Astha asks Ajju and Kalindi to join them. Ajju asks them to have food, they will eat later. Kalindi tells Shlok that he can find his identity being with them too.
