Anu asks Vanraj to send her divorce papers to sign and says anyways their relationship burnt away when she caught him with Kavya on her own bed, now there is no use of carrying ashes. She continues that she used to pray god that she needs him as her husband for 7 lives, but now one life is a burden for her. He says fine, he will send divorce papers. She reminisces their marriage and says she is angry for whatever wrong he did and thankful for his good deeds, respecting his family, tolerating her for 25 years, sorry for the problems he faced because of her; her mother taught that when when relationship break, they should continue talking, but when they stop talking, they should walk together, but both have ended, so there is no meaning of this relationship; she prays for his happiness wherever he stays and greets Jai Sri Krishna. Each family member reminisce their love for Vanraj. Anu shows him door. Baa cries seeing that.
Pakhi cries hugging him. Anu cries seeing that. Vanraj consoles Pakhi saying she knows how much he loves her. Pakhi pleads not to leave them. Vanraj says he cannot stay here, but she can come along if she wants. Anu stands shocked hearing that. Vanraj says he is alone now as nobody understands or supports him, will she support him, they and bestie will stay together happily as he knows she likes smart and intelligent people. He says he will not separate her from her mother and brothers, she can come here whenever she wants. Samar says Sweety will not go anywhere and looks at Baa, who nods yes. Vanraj asks Pakhi to listen to her heart. Anu thinks why he is forcing Sweety to stay with either parent and prays god to keep Sweety happy wherever she stays. Pakhi says she cannot understand anything and hugs Toshu.
Vanraj picks his bags and greeting Baa and Bapuji says he will not touch their feet as he knows they will not bless him. He asks Mamaji to take care of Baa and Bapuji and greets Jai Sri Krishna. Baa asks him to think again as one doesn’t leave dear ones for outsiders. Vanraj says even she disowned him for an outsider Anu, he is going now. Anu cries profusely hearing that. Vanraj reminisces spending quality time with family. He picks car keys and walks towards door when Bapuji says he will repent. He says he will not fulfill this wish and says he is going. Baa says he should says he will return. He says one who want to return would say that and walks outside door. He looks at kitchen and tells Anu that Bapuji gave her house, but there is difference between running the house and handling it, he will see how she will run the house without him. Baa tries to go behind him, but Bapuji stops her. He walks to gate, opens it angrily, and opening car door angrily looks at Anu and drives car away. Anu wipes her tears and prepares tea, milk, juice for family.
Kavya opens door hearing door bell and gets happy seeing Vanraj with his bag and hugging him says she is so happy that he came. Anu takes breakfast for Pakhi. Pakhi says she would have convinced papa and wouldn’t have let him go, there were problems between them since years, then why did he let her go even after her telling that she needs both parents. She walks away. Anu thinks she doesn’t repent as a wife, but as a mother she is sorry to hurt her daughter. In lawn, Baa sits crying. Bapuji offers her hot pack and says he knows her tears not of knee pain but of pain in the heart. Baa says maybe they are responsible for Vanraj’s condition. Bapuji says what Vanraj did was wrong. Baa says Bahu is good, but not good for Vanraj. Anu while ironing clothes hears that.
Baa tells Bapuji that Anupama is good, but not good for Vanraj as they are not equal. Bapuji says even they are not equal, he is well educated and from big city, but she is illiterate and from small city; he used to go out and work while she used to stay at home, what if he also had done same mistake like Vanraj. She says even then. He says just because he is their son, it doesn’t mean he can make mistake; what if Anupama had done same mistake. She says Vanraj accepted his mistake. Bapuji says if he murders someone and accepts mistake, will police spare him; Vanraj would have stopped all this when Anu caught him red handed, but even then he continued without repenting. Baa says she can understand, but how to make a mother understand. Bapuji says Anu is suffering and she shouldn’t increase her pain. Baa says her piece of heart has left her, how to convince her heart. Anu hearing their conversation while ironing clothes stands frozen and cloth burns. Bapuji smells something burning and alerts Anu. Anu says everything is burning, heart is burning, house is burning because of her. Bapuji says when fire catches house, goods burn, but when relationship burn, happiness burn, even their happiness is burning, but she didn’t set fire on it, so she shouldn’t blame herself.
Kavya asks Vanraj if he is hungry, should she order food. He says he is not hungry. She offers him coffee and says she knows he likes tea, but she cannot prepare good tea. She says he came to her in anger, will he return home when his anger clears. Vanraj reminisces Bapuji, Baa, and children’s anger on him. He says he left house in anger, but he came to her as he loves her; sometimes people take wrong decisions in anger, but when he takes any decision, its final.
Anu notices Toshu keeping his engagement ring in home temple. Toshu says his alliance with Kinjal is canceled, so kept it in temple and she can sell it off; papa made mistake, mummy and grandparents punished papa, but his alliance is canceled because of his parents without his mistake. Anu says this ring belongs to Kinjal and will always be. He says its impossible. He says he told even when Rakhi denied his engagement Kinjal, but it happened; he should return Kinjal’s ring when he meets her next. Baa walks in and shouts how dare she is. Baa notices Kinjal at door and shouts how dare she is to return her, her mother insulted them and broke alliance, then why did she come here. Anu requests her to calm down. Kinjal apologizes on her mother’s behalf. Baa continues that her mother purposefully preplanned everything and insulted her daughter’s in-laws, she dared to insult her, etc.
Kinjal asks what is her mistake in this, she can insult her but not break alliance. Baa continues yelling at her and shuts door on her face. Anu pleads not to shut door on anyone’s face as she knows how it feels. She opens door and sees Kinjal already gone. Toshu runs searching Kinjal. Baa yells that mother insulted them and their son is mad behind daughter. Anu says mother broke alliance because of father’s mistake and they are breaking daughter’s heart because of mother’s mistake, what is the difference between them and Rakhi now. Baa yells she doesn’t want to hear her lecture and walks away. Samar says he knows how it feels when heart breaks, reminiscing proposing Nandini and she not replying and walking away. He hopes Tohsu and Kinjal’s alliance doesn’t break. Anu says it will not.
Vanraj exercises reminiscing Baa slapping him, Bapuji pulling off his nameplate and kicking him out of house after transferring property in Anupama’s name, Anu asking him to send divorce papers. He does crunches and subconsciously asks Anu to hold his legs, then realizes she is not there and asks Kavya to help. Kavya busy working on laptop says just 5 minutes. He says its okay. Kavya says she doesn’t know how many protein shake scoops he takes, so if he can prepare it himself. After sometime, Vanraj gets ready for office with Kavya. Kavya says she used dream that their mornings should be together. Vanraj says even evenings. She gets client’s call and walks away. He searches his tie and pulls out clothes from cupboard searching it. He calls Kavya and asks where is his tie. She asks why did he mess so much just for a tie. He says his tie is missing, shoe is not polished yet. She asks him to relax, she will search it, but he should do his chores himself and don’t throw his wet towel on bed as she doesn’t like it. He says he is not habituated to do all this, then says he will learn. She says one should do their chores themselves, gets client’s call asking to clear the mess. He searches tie and socks and remembers Anu, gets angry thinking why is he thinking of her so much.
Samar tells Anu that he wants to do a call center job to support family. She asks to just think about his fulfilling his dream and leave house issues on her. She sees Baa looking out via binocular hoping Vanraj will return, walks to her and asks if she should prepare masala khichdi as she likes it. Baa says even Vanraj likes it, emotionally asks if she felt same when Toshu had left home, she feels choking. Anu says being a mother she became a reason for another mother’s pain, hopes she knows how to lessen her pain. Baa says Vanraj will return for sure as he cannot stay away from them even for 2 days. Just then, Anu hears Vanraj’s car honk. Vanraj stops his car and walks in with his bag.
