Anu confronts Vanraj that she waited a lot thinking that he would marry Kavya and end their relationship, but he doesn’t want to be either of Kavya or her, hence she took a decision of divorcing him. Baa says a wife sacrifices her life for husband and is nothing without husband’s name. Anu says she is right that a woman is nothing without her husband’s name, but should be; she will try be a mother, daughter, and DIL without being a wife and will even die trying it; there won’t be anything half in her life. Vanraj asks Toshu, Baa, and Pakhi that everyone does mistakes and even he did, he just wanted to return to them as his family is important to him, but Anu’s arrogance and ego is important to her; he apologized Anu in temple and requested to punish him, but she doesn’t want to forgive him.
Anu shouts to stop and says he wanted to return home and she never stop him from returning home and follow his duty of a son and a father, she will never stop him from meeting them as only 1 relationship ended and rests are intact; he can allege her anything but not say that anything is important to her than family; he always alleged others for his mistakes; he went to Kavya as he had problems with her and said she was unfit for him, illiterate, uncultured, and smell masalas; he returned here alleging Kavya that she didn’t take care of him and now he wants becomes my husband again and alleging me for not letting him become one; either gharwali/insider or baharwali/outside, man thinks only woman is at mistake and even woman accepts it as she is taught to become great, but she doesn’t want to become great and just wants to be a human; she doesn’t need his money or anything; they lied for 25 years and she has good memories along with bad, so he shouldn’t spoil them and reply to his divorce notice soon. Vanraj says his lawyer will reply to her legal notice and he will break her arrogance soon, she made a mistake by challenging Vanraj Shah and he will show her want he can.
Pakhi says she doesn’t care who made a mistake, but she wants her always; by filing for a divorce, mummy forced her to choose between him and her, she chooses him and wants to go with him. Vanraj walks away holding her hand. Baa cries pleading him not to go. Bapuji stops her. Anu runs behind Pakhi and stops her. Vanraj says when she broke the house, people will shatter for sure. Pakhi says she wants to go with papa. Anu says she needs her mother’s blessings when she is going out of house. Pakhi says she doesn’t hate her, but she is not understanding what she means. Anu says papa loves her and he will never stop her from doing anything, she should take care of herself, she is worried as she is going away from her for the first time, she shouldn’t trouble papa. Vanraj says if her chatting is finished, they will leave as they are getting late. Anu stands asking Pakhi to take care of herself while car leaves. Serial’s title track plays in the background. Anu returns home. Baa yells first she kicked her son out of house and now her granddaughter.
Anu enters Pakhi’s room and cries looking at her stuff. Ek Chidaiya..song.. plays in the background. She cries profusely holding Pakhi’s school bag. Baa walks to her and throwing threads towards her says Pakhi united these threads thinking her parents will stay together; she broke the house and should break these threads also; she saw other women breaking others house, but not herself breaking her own house; if she has a heart or stone in her chest, her husband and daughter left home, even then her heart didn’t melt; her son did so much for her, apologized her so many times, fought with Rakhi, etc., even god would have melted with this, but she didn’t; she is not the first woman to bear all this, but she is acting so much. She continues yelling and alleging her.
Vanraj returns to Kavya’s home. She asks where was he. He says Anupama sent him divorce notice, so he had gone home. Pakhi walks behind him. He says he hopes she doesn’t mind. Kavya reminiscing Vanraj telling that his family and children are most important to her says Pakhi is her bestie and she doesn’t mind. She asks Pakhi if she should order pizza and sits with her chatting. Vanraj looking at divorce notice thinks Anu spoke a lot today, but they say sau sunar ki ek lohar ki, she should wait for his attack.
Baa continues that there is an age to fight, she became Niruprai and didn’t fight when she had to and is fighting now in Niruparai’s age; she has become saas now, people speak when couple divorce, pity when parents divorce, and laugh when saas and sasur divorce; this age is of going to pilgrimage and not going to court; she burnt her own relationship; she will realize when Pakhi won’t be married and blamed saying she must be like her mother, she didn’t even think once and broke her house. Anu asks if she betrayed or him. Baa says he. Anu says he betrayed and made mistake, then why she is teaching her; she is repeating same words to accept betrayal as she is a woman and ruin her self-respect for her husband.
Baa yells what will she do with her self-respect, she should forget it and concentrate on her family. Anu says woman lives on love and self-respect, love is gone and she will be gone if her self-respect is gone. Baa yells to stop these words, people will laugh on them. Anu says people laughed even when Vanraj left with Kavya. Baa says she slapped Vanraj and ended the issue. Anu asks to slap her also and end the issue; the society she is talking about didn’t come to share her pain, wipe her tears or encourage her, then why would it come to question her; when the society doesn’t care about her, even she doesn’t care about society; she wants to live with dignity and breathe freely, rather than being referred as left by husband, she wants to be referred as she left her husband; Pakhi’s parents won’t be divorce, she is divorcing her husband, woman is taught to suffocate always, but she has to learn to breathe freely and she is learning same. She returns her Pakhi’s threads and walks away.
Vanraj, Pakhi, and Kavya enjoy pizzas. Pakhi goes to bring cold drinks. Vanraj says its a matter of 2 days and Pakhi may return tomorrow itself. Kavya says its okay, she doesn’t mind with Pakhi’s presence. Vanraj says she and Pakhi can sleep on bed and he will sleep on couch. She says she has rolling bed and Pakhi can sleep on that. He says it would be awkward. She says there is nothing to feel awkward, Pakhi knows we are together and even at home he and Anu had separate room. He hopes so. Pakhi thinks Anu must have sent Pakhi here so that she and Vanraj shouldn’t spend time together, but Vanraj returned to her after a lot of difficulty and she will not let him a reason to go.
Samar meets Nandini and says its not easy to accept mummy and papa’s divorce. Nandini says if 2 people are not compatible with each other, its better they divorce. Samar hopes mummy stays happy after divorce. Nandini says society cannot see a woman happy. His friends standing nearby taunt that they can’t see Samar’s happiness. Samar warns to be in limits. They say he should have taught his father and laugh that his father left with a babe leaving his illiterate mother, etc. Samar angrily trashes them. Neighbors gather. Mamaji noticing that calls family out. Toshu and Kinjal join them and trash goons. Goons run away. Neighbors discuss this family has drama each day, earlier father and now son. Samar angrily walks home. Rakhi watches drama and smirks. Family rushes behind Samar and asks why he lost his calm, he didn’t even fight when Pakhi was bullied, what happened now.
Anu asks Nandini what happened there. Samar reminisces goons insulting Anu and says if they insult his mother, he will trash them repeatedly. Anu says people are habituated to taunt, they can’t shut everyone’s mouth. He says he can break their mouth then and walks to his room. Kinjal tells Anu that Samar’s anger is valid, she will speak to him and everything will be alright. Rakhi enters saying really? Toshu checks Samar’s injiuries and thanks god that nothing serious happened, he will handle goons. Samar says he will accompany him. Tosu says his elder brother is enough to handle them and hugging him consoles him. Rakhi comments that after father left home, son became a goon and may murder some day. Kinjal says nothing of that sort will happen, its those goons’ mistake as they were rubbishing about mummy and papa. Rakhi says oh is it. Baa asks if she will not feel bad if someone insults her father. Rakhi says her father didn’t have an affair, his girlfriend didn’t come to her house, or her parents didn’t divorce; if drama happens, people will laugh, clap, and whishle.
Baa says she will slap her. Rakhi says she can understand Anu’s pain, her business head informed that Vanraj returned to Kavya’s house with Pakhi, now Samar fought, how can Anu tolerate so much; she even heard Anu sent divorce notice to Vanraj; she is really great; if she didn’t have back pain or Anu’s feet are not dirty, she would have touched her feet. Kinjal says she told this sarcastically, but mummy is really great. Rakhi asks if greatness is bigger than family, divorce in this age, society will not let her or her family live in peace. Kinjal stops her, but she warns to let elders speak. She continues that she thought this family just does drama, but found today that this family even does goondagiri; she accepted alliance unwillingly, now she is ashamed to call Vanraj as her samdhi and soon she may have to visit police station seeing what happened outside today. Rakhi yells at Kinjal that they way Kinjal got involved in a fight with family, she wouldn’t be surprised to get a call from police station to pay bail money as Shahs cant afford it. Anu says she should stop coming here to stop hearing people’s taunts; Samar is a kid and will understand that people are habituated to taunt, she will not back off from her decision and will be stick to it.
Toshu goes to get pain killer for Samar and asks Nandini if she is fine and needs anything. Nandini says no. Samar angrily says how can people be so cheap, they mudsling on people in social media and even in locality. Nandini says people like drama, they are loser. Rakhi tells Anu that she will not come to her house as she wishes, but her daughter stays here and how will she face humiliation and draw that will happen in this house after Anu and Vanraj’s house. Anu asks Kinjal if she feels she shouldn’t stay in this house. Rakhi says there is nothing to feel, it is obvious; tells Toshu that she feels they should move on from here as its their honeymoon period, there is only negativity and argument in this house, etc. She suggests Toshu to shift to one of her many apartment in house and suggests Kinjal to shift to their Patel Nagar’s pent house she likes it. Baa says if she has so many houses, she should break them instead of breaking our house and separating her children.
Kinjal asks Rakhi to not create more issues as already a lot happened in their house. Rakhi says she was just suggesting and calling driver says she came to take her signatures on investment papers as she made a few investments for her. She walks out of house and thinks she set off spark and let us see the blast happening. Baa yells at Anu that because of her nagin Rakhi spoke so much, her divorce will affect her children’s lives. Anu asks Toshu and Kinjal if they think Rakhi is right, they should think of their future. Baa yells that she wants to get off her responsibility and send everyone out of house. Bapuji asks to let her speak. Baa says if she listens to Anu, they will be on road begging. Anu apologizes Toshu and Kinjal for the problem they are facing because of her. Kinjal asks not to say that.
Toshu says because of divorce decision, whole family is suffering; papa left home, Baa and Bapuji are in tension, Samar fought today, and they cannot concentrate on their career; there is always drama in this house, she needs divorce at what cost, what she wants to gain by divorcing papa; she is a mother and in this age, mother thinks of children and doesn’t become selfish. Baa says thank god at least someone in house can differentiate between right and wrong. Bapuji asks what is right in this, doesn’t Anu has right to think of herself. Toshu says what is the use of it, Samar had to fight with locality boys and if he was alone, they should smashed him.
Toshu continues blaming Anu and says everyone knows papa made a mistake and she would have corrected his mistake, but instead her ego is above everything for her. Samar hearing that confronts him that instead of bringing medicine for him, he is scratching mummy’s wounds; Pakhi is a kid and can’t understanding anything, but being an elder how can he say that. Toshu yells that Rakhi is right, if mummy herself wants them to go, then why not. Baa yells that 2 already left and 2 more are going. Bapuji says he shouldn’t take any decision in anger. Toshu says even mummy took decision of divorce in anger and tells Kinjal that they should move as she had issues with mummy. Anu looks at Kinjal in a shock. Kinjal says she had issues with mummy as she felt she is not taking a strong stance against papa, but when she is taking a stance against papa, why shouldn’t she support mummy. Samar asks Toshu if he would have left house even if Rakhi had not offered him a home. Toshu says yes as mummy is forcing him to leave the house by thinking of divorcing papa.
Bapuji says Anu’s decision is right. Baa says it is also wrong. Toshu says he is on Baa’s side. Samar says he is on Bapuji’s side. Nandini says she is an outsider, but they all should support Anu aunty. Their argument start. Anu feels panics unable to hear their argument and shouts to stop, they shouldn’t fight because of her; they are feeling her decision is wrong as any other woman of her age wouldn’t have taken this decision, but for her this decision is right and its her right and she chose it after thinking much; she may face a lot of problems walking on it and she will face all the problems, but will not let any problem on her family; nobody has to go from this house, so she will go; she should have gone long ago when Vanraj kicked her out of house, now she will go. Bapuji says she doesn’t have to go anywhere. Baa says he didn’t stop her son, but is stopping his daughter.
Bapuji says for her except her son, everyone are wrong, until a mother like her blindly supports her son, sons will never correct their mistake. Anu asks not to fight because of her. Baa yells to stop as her wrong decision will ruin her children’s lives and society will not let them live peacefully, even Dolly’s life will be affected because of her and her in-laws will taunt her. Mamaji says Sanjay will never agree to her. Bapuji says his daughter will not leave this house and even his house’s laxmi Kinjal will not, let Samar go; if Anu leaves this house, even he will go with her. Samar says even he will. Baa says she will not let Anu go, but Anu should realize her mistake.
Vanraj writhes in pain and asks Kavya to give his medicine. She says she forgot to bring it. He says she must have forgotten as her attention was somewhere else while packing his clothes, if she brought his prescription file at least. She says no. He says Anu and Samar took care of his medicines, asks not to worry as he will ask Samar to bring medicine for him. She nods yes, but murmurs that whatever she does, a link always remains. He hears hear that. Anu sits in lawn tired and sad. Samar keeps a radio for her playing a sad ghazal. In the morning, Kavya gets a call by subordinate that she is not coming, she yells on subordinate and asks Vanraj to have cornflakes in breakfast as maid is not coming today. Pakhi gets a call from friend that she has test today and panics saying her test and uniform are at home, she will ask Samar to bring books and uniform and even breakfast for today.
Baa yells that family’s happiness went away with Vanraj and charm with Pakhi. Bapuji says everything will be fine. Baa says until bahu doesn’t correct herself, nothing will be alright. Samar walks in. Anu asks how is his injury. Baa yells one who gave pain is asking about pain. Bapuji asks if she was born under a neem tree, can’t she speak normally at least for a day. Samar informs Anu that her students’ mothers also want her to teach them dance. Anu asks how will she manage dance and school at once. Samar says he and Nandini will manage. Pakhi calls him. Anu asks him to pick call and let her hear her voice. Baa asks to switch on speaker as she wants to know if she had food as maide ki katori Kavya must have kept her hungry till now. He picks call. Anu asks him to ask if she had milk. Samar asks same. Pakhi says not yet as she didn’t like the milkshake flavor here. Kavya gets angry hearing that, but Vanraj signals her to calm down.
