Niranjan thinking about Anjali’s appraisal. Shlok comes and asks why did he call Anjali in meeting. He says what can I do, it was Astha and Anjali’s wish. Shlok says I can’t bear your insult you know Anjali, she did not give love to her children and did not manage home well. Niranjan says you think this but Astha thinks something else, she is my bahu and I have to make her wish true. This will go on till your relation becomes…… no how can I think this, I know you and Astha love each other, and its wrong to think your relation can end. Shlok says I know you wanted to unite us, I don’t think our relation can become normal again, don’t know what happened to her, she just wants to insult you, but for me its clear I m against that person who is against you, I won’t let her win, she can’t make Anjali stand against you. Niranjan hugs him.
Astha and Anjali are on the way back home. Anjali says she did mistake going to office, she does not know anything to do in office, I can manage just home. Astha says Baba wants to prove this that a woman is limited to home, we have to prove that woman can manage both. Anjali says you are right, but I feel hurt seeing Niranjan hurt, I promise I won’t bear any injustice and I won’t do anything wrong. Anjali stops the car. Astha asks what happened. Anjali says its Hartalika fast tomorrow, I will keep it for Niranjan. Astha asks can’t husband keep for us. Anjali says Shlok kept it last time. Astha says she will keep the fast, though he is annoyed and kept a rope between them.
Anjali shows a shop where they get all puja items and then they have to order Ganpati too. Sojal asks the maid to clean their side of home. She asks her not to clean the other side. Kavya plays and a vase breaks. Sojal scolds her. Kavya asks her to remove the rope. Anjali and Astha come. Sojal says the home is divided. Kavya asks what do you mean. Sojal says Astha and Anjali and us are apart now. Anjali scolds her. Kavya asks Astha will you not be with Shlok now. Astha says no, we are just playing a game, no division. She says its game of life, we are annoyed so being away, then we will know we can’t be apart and become friends again. Kavya asks her to become Shlok’s friend soon, as fighting is bad. Play any other game, not this.
Astha says promise we will be friends again, now you go and play with your new doll. Astha gets tears in her eyes. Mansi tries a saree. Varad comes to her and asks whats special, I felt you might be annoyed, it looks like you are preparing for celebration. She says yes, its tomorrow, how is this saree. He says yes. She tells about Hartalika fast she is keeping for him. He says why are you keeping fast. She asks why can’t I, I love you, its simple, why are you stopping me. He says you did not do this before, why are you changing now. She says I feel like keeping the fast, don’t argue. He thinks what happened to her, why is she changing, I love her as she is different and now she is not being that.
Astha gets Kalindi’s call and acts normal. Kalindi asks her to come home on Hartalika. Astha thinks if I go home, Anjali will be alone here. Astha says Shlok and Anjali want me to be here this time, its not a problem, I will come, but Shlok can feel bad. Kalindi says its fine, you stay there. Anjali hears this and asks whats this. Landline rings. Anjali calls the maid to answer it. Sita does not come. Jyoti calls. Anjali takes the call. Jyoti asks when are you coming to take me on Hartalika. Anjali asks her to be with her family, Renuka will not like when you come here often, spend time with her, keep fast with her.
She asks Jyoti to come on Ganesh Chaturthi. Jyoti says fine, you are right. Anjali says take care and ends the call. Ajju comes to Kalindi and asks why is she upset. Kalindi says she is angry as everything changed after Astha’s marriage. She misses Astha and says she is not coming even on festivals. Ajju says we will go there, don’t be tensed, its her first Hartalika, she wants to celebrate with her husband. Kalindi says she is her mum, and misses her a lot. Ajju says I will never leave you and go, now smile. Kalindi hugs her. Sojal smiles seeing Sita work for her and Astha working in their side. Anjali tells Astha that she wanted to celebrate Ganpati and Hartalika grand way but she stopped Jyoti, as she will be hurt seeing the house division.
Astha says what will we do when Jyoti comes for Ganpati, trust Lord, he will show some way. Kavya comes wearing tiger mask and all the water falls. Sojal scolds Kavya. Shlok walks in and asks whats all this. Sojal says we are preparing to bring Ganpati. Niranjan comes and sees the water in floor. Shlok says who told you Ganesh ji is coming to our home this year. This time Ganesh ji will not be brought by anyone. Kavya says why, he is my fave Ganesh ji, he will come. Shlok says I said no once. Kavya runs and asks Shlok to stop this game and break this rope. She pulls the rope. Niranjan signs Sojal to take Kavya.
Sojal takes Kavya. Astha says Shlok, what did you get hurting Kavya, she was happy. Shlok says you broke her heart, you want to bring Ganpati so that people come and see our division and insult Baba. She says you are misunderstanding me. He says I know everything, I won’t bear this. Anjali says Ganpati comes every year, its not right to stop him. Its old traditions which Niranjan;s family started, Ganpati will come, your fight is with Astha, I won’t let this affect traditions. Niranjan says this word traditions looks small from you, you have let the division happen, what kind of mum are you.
He says Astha is kiddish, but you are mature and could explain her that her step is wrong, but what did you do, you supported wrong, how can I expect you can teach her right and wrong. He says this year Ganpati will not come in this house.
Niranjan saying this decision is right to save house’s respect and I apologize for this decision. He says I m helpless, Anjali is making me do this, I m seeing my traditions breaking all because of Anjali. He says Shlok, I agree with you, this year we won’t have Ganpati. Astha says fine, its about tradition and this won’t break in my presence, I will remove this rope. Shlok says wait, this rope will be removed when you apologize to Baba. Astha says why? Shlok says really? Do I need to say? For your mistakes.
Astha says she is ready, but not this time, only Lord can forgive him, he should be sorry, your eyes are blind, I know the truth and I will not apologize. Shlok says disgusting, you won’t change, why don I give you chance, as you always insult Baba. He says fine, its decided Ganpati will not come this year, you can go your home or apologize to Baba now. He says I can’t expect you will apologize, Its my biggest mistake to marry a girl like you. You don’t respect my dad and you don’t have any place in my life, I m helpless to keep up this relation. He says you look a burden to me now. Astha is shocked.
Kavya tries to break the rope. The vase falls. Astha comes and stops her. Everyone come hearing the sound. Kavya does not leave the rope. Varad asks whats going on. Kavya says she was cutting the rope, as Ganpati is not coming and Chachu Chachi fight because of it. Astha taunts Shlok for doing this and its affecting Kavya now. She says if anything happens to her then. Shlok scolds her and says you are being adamant. He says you should apologize. He leaves. Varad takes Kavya. Sojal says its good what happened and taunts Astha. Astha cries. Anjali consoles her.
Astha says she is feeling bad, Kavya is so sad. Anjali asks her to leave everything on Lord. Its morning, they pray to the Lord. Anjali tells about Hartalika fast. Astha says she kept the fast for Shlok, but don’t know I will break my fast by his hands or not. Anjali says I m sure Shlok will break it. Sojal eats food and hides the plate seeing Anjali come. Anjali asks her to come for the puja. Sojal thinks if she does puja in her area, she will have to work too. She says now house is divided, I will do puja here, Astha can go against Baba, I can’t, sorry.
Astha gets ready and looks at herself thinking about Shlok. She thinks Shlok gifted her this saree. She dresses as Shlok told her. She says I m dressed up as you wanted, I wish you could see me. Shlok sees Astha and she stops. Music plays……………………He thinks of the same moments. Khuda……………….plays………………….She thinks please Shlok end all this. He leaves. She says first I used to talk so much and you used to listen to me, and now you don’t talk to me, you don’t have time for me. She holds the rope and leaves.
Sojal gets ready and praises herself. She asks Varad how is she looking, and she kept fast for him, and asks for gift. He gets Mansi’s call and answers it as Sojal should no doubt. Mansi says I kept fast for you, I will break it by your hand, will you come. Varad says I can’t come, I will be at home. She asks is it Mansi’s call. He says its call from office and lies to Sojal. He leaves. Mansi says what problem does Sojal have with me, I don’t care, Varad has to come with me.
Anjali thinks she has to stop Shlok from telling Niranjan so that he can break Astha’s fast. She asks Niranjan and Shlok to come home early as Shlok has to break Astha’s fast. Shlok says he will not make anyone drink water, you can tell Astha. Astha hears this and is upset. Shlok says you don’t need to keep fast for me, if you cared, then this rope would not have been between us, stop showing off to world and stop expecting from me, lets go Baba. Anjali thinks she will not fail, Shlok will break Astha’s fast.
