Devi dips Kaurvaki fingers in some bowl to heal. How did it happen? Kaurvaki says uptan. Devi wonders if something is wrong with it. She mixes lemon in it and it changes. She is sure someone missed something in it. She recalls seeing Anandini leave from the kitchen. She heads to Anandini’s room determinedly.
Devi comes to Anandini’s room with the uptan which scares Anandini. This isn’t etiquette! Dvei slaps her which angers Anandini. Devi says you will see my daring when I will throw it on you. You will then be punished for your deeds. Anandini covers her face shouting no as Devi acts to throw it on her. Devi says you tried to ruin someone else’s life but dint realise the impact it will cause on Kaurvaki and Ashoka. Ashoka is completely selfless. If you have loved him even a bit then leave this palace asap. Don’t show your face here again. She keeps the bowl in Anandini’s hands and leaves. Anandini cries.
Vit is helping his brother get ready while Ashoka tells him against it. Vit reasons that when Lakshman can serve his elder brother Ram then why cant he. Ashoka gets emotional. Vit teases him. You will get your Sita today. Shyness doesn’t suit you. She looked really beautiful when she went to take bath shyly. I will check her. Ashoka tells him to get ready first. Vit leaves.
Kaurvaki is trying to tie her kamarbandh but is unable to do so because of her fingers. I sent Devi for no reason. I should have taken her help. She shouts in pain when she tries again. Ashoka comes there. He blows at her fingers concerned. It must be paining. She says not now. He makes her turn so he can tie the kamarbandh. She says you shouldn’t have come here. He asks her if he cannot come to meet his would be wife. She points out that she is getting ready. He sweetly replies that I thought we were ready for this moment since childhood only. Kaurvaki turns. They both share a romantic eye lock. Ashoka holds her hand and helps her get ready. He nods at her but she looks emotional. He makes her look at him and ties the kamarbandh. She feels shy. She looks in the mirror when he picks up her chunri. He promises never to hurt her. If I cannot ease it then also I will always be with you. I cannot promise you that we wont have differences but I still promise to love you, come what may. I cannot give you a normal life but I assure you I will trust you every second. I promise that our life will always be complete. I promise to make everything possible till we are together. He makes her sit down and dorns the rest of the jewellery. She closes her eyes in pain as he tries to make her wear the bangle.
Vit smiles as he peeks from the door. Devi notices him thus. What is he looking at? She too peeks in and smiles. She covers Vit’s eyes but continues to look herself. Dharma is passing by from the corridor when she notices them thus. She too joins them. She covers Devi’s eyes sweetly. Ashoka makes Kaurvaki wear her anklets. Dharma is really happy. Kaurvaki gets ready with Ashoka’s help. She smiles shyly. He eyes her lovingly and caresses her face. Devi comes in but they are too lost in each other. She coughs to distract them. Ashoka backs off. Devi asks his permission to get Kaurvaki ready too if he is done. He fumbles in his reply and leaves. Ashoka comes out of the room smiling to himself when he notices Vit and his parents there. Bindu remarks that Dharma was right. Our son has indeed understood his responsibilities. Vit nods. he has learnt to take care too. Bindu nods. Dharma tells them to stop teasing her son. she does Ashoka’s aarti. Ashoka seeks her blessings as he is going to enter in another phase of life. She blesses him.
Devi notices Kaurvaki all sad. Are you missing your parents? Kaurvaki replies that she wishes no girl faces this situation. World may think me to be selfish as I gave my wishes importance than theirs. Truth is I want the peace of world more than anything else. It is only Ashoka who can do so. He wont be able to do it alone though. He would need support this is why I took the decision of doing anything to help him in life. I know Ashoka is aggressive. He can be dangerous so my support will be helpful to him. I dint know I will have to pay such a big price to be with him. She gets teary eyed. Girls become parayi for parents when she is born. But parents are never paraye for a girl. they are always her own. Devi wipes her tears. If your mother was here then she would have put kala teeka behind your ears to ward off evil eyes. no one can take a mother’s place but I can do it in her place. She does Kaurvaki’s aarti and also places a kala teeka.
Chanda does puja. Bless me so I can fulfil all my responsibilities as a wife and live up to my husband’s expectations. Bless me that I can keep him happy. Kaurvaki says what about your happiness. Chanda replies that it isn’t different than his. Kaurvaki says I know you love Sushim a lot but you don’t know him well. I came here to alert you. he isn’t a good guy. You may not believe it but the truth it. Chanda already knows Sushim was earlier attracted to Kaurvaki and wanted to marry her. I came here after knowing everything about Sushim. I loved him then only. Kaurvaki reasons that you cannot pray to devil. Chanda is sure only his thoughts are wrong. He is a good person. Good guidance can turn him back on the right path. Kaurvaki says I know him since childhood.
No one can save him. Neither your puja nor your attitude. Why are you destroying your life by loving him? Chanda only smiles in reply. Love changes one for good. I have dedicated myself and my life to Sushim. Kaurvaki tries to say something but Chanda cuts her mid sentence. One worries for those who have lost their path, including God. Maybe that is why I was chosen for Sushim by God. Ashoka can get many Kaurvaki’s but there is only one Chanda for SUshim. Giving your everything to someone is love. I have nothing now that I can call my own. Take your example. You left your parents for your love. come now. Destiny has planned our paths already.
Everyone is gathered in the courtoom. Chanda walks in with her parents. Sushim looks at her sweetly. Kaurvaki comes with Daasi’s. Kaurvaki looks a little lost. Chanda greets everyone by folding her hands. Ashoka and Kaurvaki look at each other.
Sushim and Chanda are on stage. Raj Purohit explains the significance of the ritual. They have decided to be together with the blessings of their parents. Chanda ties a thread on Sushim’s hand and vice versa. Everyone showers flower petals on them. Sushim and Chanda smile at each other. Chanda goes down the stage smiling shyly to herself. Devi smiles at Kaurvaki. They both walk ahead together. Ashoka and Kaurvaki look at each other. Kaurvaki gets sad seeing all his family members there. She misses her parents. Raj Purohit repeats the meaning of the ritual. Ashoka notices the sadness in her eyes. Devi holds the tray with the threads. Ashoka says I cannot get it donned on my hand. It takes everyone by surprise. Charu wonders what this new drama is. Ashoka says forgive me Kaurvaki but truth is that your father hates me. He wont accept me as your husband ever. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have to seek his permission to marry you. Kanyadaan is every father’s right. It is his responsibility. I cannot snatch it from him. I only want to fulfil this ritual in his presence. Sushim thinks they wont marry in this birth at all then. Someone walks in just then. Everyone turns to look at Jagannath. Kaurvaki too looks up. She gets tensed seeing her father.
Kaurvaki says father. Bindu says I succeeded finally. I told you my Ashoka will not marry without your consent and blessings. I know him too well. Dharma is confused. When did Samrat have a word with Jagannath and when he came here? Bindu welcomes him. Jagannath tells Kaurvaki not to be shocked. This isn’t a dream but reality. Your father, who is your culprit, is standing right before you. She rushes to his side and hugs him. Dharma, Ashoka, Vit and Devi are happy to see them bond. Jagannath says I realised your importance after losing you. Ashoka’s decision has made me realise that it was me who was narrow minded. I was wrong, not him. He has proved it today. A mother’s love is for her every kid but a father’s trust is always only for the kid who deserves it. The kid, for whom father does so much, can never go wrong. We believed you to be dead and lost every hope. The good came in the form we never expected it to be.
Flashback shows Bindu going to meet Jagannath. Jagannath tells him to leave. I had no idea my daughter will commit suicide because of me saying no. Bindu asks him why he is blaming himself. What if Kaurvaki is still alive? Jagannath says why answer pointless question. Bindu yet again asks for a reply from him to which Jagannath replies in affirmative. Jagannath does not believe it. Bindu explains that kaurvaki is alive and in Patliputra at this moment. A father is spreading his hands before you for his son’s happiness. I am doing it all for the sake of our kids. I, Magadh’s Samrat BIndusar, ask for your daughter’s hand for my son Ashoka. She declared herself dead for the world to marry him. She left her everything behind. I am requesting you so that love can reach its climax. Jagannath asks him if he isn’t lying. Is my daughter alive? BIndu nods. Jagannath says Ashoka’s life is full of thorns. Will my daughter be able to walk with him? Bindu suggests him to ask Kaurvaki only.
Ashoka wont let any harm come on her. He will face everything on his own. We know it too well. Jagannath says I have many other issues too. Ashoka is still considered Daasi-putra and is looked down in the palace. Bindu reasons that the karma and thoughts of someone make them great. My son has gained so much love from everyone because of his actions and good thoughts only. He wont marry kaurvaki without your permission and blessings. Jagannath doubts it but Bindu is sure Ashoka will not go ahead with the marriage in case Jagannath objects. What will you say if he disagrees? Flashback ends.
Jagannath says I had to come here to announce my decision. He greets everyone. Charu and Sushim look unhappy. Jagannath keeps Kaurvaki’s hand in Ashoka’s. Almost everyone (except the negative people) gets emotional. Jagannath says your father trusts you Ashoka. He understands you very well. Sushim looks upset. Bindu says seems like both me and my son lived up to your trust. Jagannath apologizes to Ashoka for his past rude behaviour. Forgive me. Ashoka holds his hands. You are elder to me. Elders forgive kids. They don’t apologize. Kaurvaki asks for her mother. She enters just then, calling out for her daughter. The mother daughter duo has an emotional reunion. She is about to put a kala teeka behind Kaurvaki’s ear but already notices one there. You are too lucky. You are going to come to the family where your caretakers / saviours are already there.
Charu says their drama isn’t going to end. I hope your work will finish soon. Sushim assures her about it.
Bindu remarks that Ashoka faced every problem alone. Be it Noor, Mir, Helena or anything. You did it all by yourself. I never supported you but you became the pillar of my strength. You not just killed Magadhs enemies but you also helped us join good relations with enemy state. No one can imagine how proud I am today. Ashoka replies that he is following the path shown by his Guru. Kaurvaki joins them. Bindu says you will surely reach your destination as you have got the right partner. Ashoka and Kaurvaki tie threads on each other’s hands. Everyone showers flower petals on them (Siamak does it angrily).
Devi tells Kaurvaki she does not wish to take any chances this time. There have been too many problems whenever something good is about to happen. I will show your kundli’s to a Baba in my village. I am sure the date he will pick will bring happiness in your married life. Kaurvaki is touched. Not even my real sister would do this much for me. thank you so much. They hug.
Sushim says Ashoka loved Kaurvaki which got him political advantage. Enemy state turned into a relative now. Samrat patted at his beloved son’s back before everyone. I looked so low. Siamak tells him not to worry about it. Samrat has done it previously too but is gets low in time. All the relations will break once the treasury gets empty. Ashoka is not going to marry Kaurvaki. Is the work going fine? Sushim assures him about it. siamak says Ashoka should not doubt on it.
One servant drops the gift box while shifting it. Charu covers up for it and diverts Ashoka and Bindus attention. They don’t notice anything amiss. All the princesses leave for their respective homes. Mahamatya looks at them.
Sushim assures Siamak no one will doubt when the carts will be replaced. Siamak hopes it is good if it reaches Takshshila asap. Sushim denies. it will stay here in a temple. No one will doubt it being here. Siamak says I am really eager to see Samrat and Ashoka’s reaction after finding out that they have lost everything and have become bankrupt.
