It is night time. Sitara is trying to figure out how Vrinda is transmitting poison to Viraj. I will be able to defeat her then.
Vrinda says the game has just begun. Sitara has become weak on Day 1 itself. Just do as I say. Keep your focus on this idol.
Sitara wakes up and is shocked to see Diya missing from her pram. She goes outside to look for her. She hears the sound of a baby’s laughter and peeks inside Vrinda’s room. She is shocked to see Vrinda holding Diya in her arms. Sitara asks Vrinda what is going on. Vrinda lies that Diya was crying. Sitara holds Diya. I couldn’t hear it and you could hear it from such a distance? Lie should be such that can be believed! You came in my room today. Don’t you dare set your foot in my room after today without asking me! She leaves with Diya. Vrinda is sure Sitara will be more careful with Diya now. She is very important so I can achieve my mission!
Sitara keeps Diya in her pram. Why did Ma take her? There must be some reason behind it. Is Diya making Viraj a Vishpurush or is there some other reason? How to find out the truth? She takes Diya’s saliva and moves closer to the plant in their room. It will dry if Diya is a Vishbalika. The plant is fine. Sitara wonders how Viraj is turning into a Vishpurush then. What’s Ma’s connection with Diya if she has nothing to do with Viraj? Viraj sits up startled and shouts.
Sitara asks him if he is fine. He shares that he saw a strange animal in his dream. He hugs her. I am seeing it again and again. I feel uneasy. It is as if I am hurting you somehow. Am I hurting you? She denies. He rests his head on her shoulder. Why do I feel so strange then? She is sad that she cannot tell him the truth. I promise you I will make you an ordinary human being again in these 9 days! Romantic song plays in the background. She feeds him water and he rests his head in her lap and falls asleep. Sitara is emotional.
Next morning, Padmini has fallen asleep in the house temple only. The diya is still lit. Sitara wakes her up. Padmini adds more ghee in the diya. Sitara tells Padmini what happened yester night. We have to be more careful. They can do anything to create a hindrance in our puja. Padmini agrees. She goes to make charnamrit (Prasad) for the puja. Lakshmi, Yamini and Arjun join Sitara. Lakshmi tells Sitara that she will do puja from today. Sitara welcomes her gladly. This is the sign of new beginnings. Our relations might be fixed this way. Lakshmi keeps a condition. I will do puja only if Sitara will stay away from here. Sitara thanks Devi Ma for bringing Rani Ma here. I will handle it from here.
Padmini adds milk in a bowl. She goes to bring tulsi leaves. Vrinda enters in the kitchen stealthily. She mixes something in the bowl. The puja wont be complete when this Prasad will be offered. I will see how Sitara escapes now!
Rani Ma speaks of the importance of Navratre. Whoever fasts with a pure heart in these days gets whatever he or she wishes for! Vrinda and Surili look at them. Surili asks her sister how they will stop their puja today. Vrinda shares that she has made preps from that. I have messed their Prasad. Their puja wont be complete today! She asks for Albeli but Surili tells her to enjoy this moment first.
Albeli notices Padmini taking the Prasad bowl. It is the best time to ruin their puja. Didi will be so impressed with me then!
Lakshmi asks for Prasad. Sitara shares that Padmini is bringing it. Lakshmi points out that the puja wont be complete without it.
Albeli drops water in Padmini’s path. The bowl falls again in Padmini’s hand but Albeli drinks it.
Lakshmi is getting restless but Yamini suggests her to start the puja. Padmini will join us soon. Lakshmi starts her puja.
Padmini asks Albeli why she drank the Prasad. Albeli asks her how she will complete her puja now. She throws the bowl away. Padmini looks at her teary eyed.
Lakshmi offers aarti to Arjun and Yamini. Padmini tells Sitara everything. Lakshmi asks for Prasad again. Is this how you do puja? Padmini apologizes to Sitara. Your puja remained incomplete because of my mistake. Sitara tells her not to apologize. Ma does not let anything go wrong ever. If it dint come here then it wasn’t meant for us. Vrinda wonders why Padmini dint bring Prasad. I kept it in the kitchen only.
Sitara adds a flower in the kalash kept there. There cannot be anything more pious than this! Vrinda is still puzzled as to how this happened. Albeli peeks at her sisters. I drank it! She walks up to them. They don’t have Prasad now. Vrinda slaps her. Everyone looks at them in confusion. Albeli asks her sister why she slapped her. Vrinda asks her to come but Albeli again asks her why she should go. Did you forget what you told us? We have to ruin your puja so Viraj can turn into a Vishpurush completely? Vrinda tells others not to believe Albeli.
She is ill. Albeli denies. You told her that we have to ruin the Navratra puja so Viraj can become Vishpurush. Vrinda fails in her efforts to quieten her. Albeli asks Surili if Vrinda dint say so. Viraj would have turned into a Vishpurush if Sitara hadn’t fought with us. Lakshmi looks on in shock. Sitara thanks Ma for bringing out their truth before everyone this way.
Albeli keeps mumbling the truth in her inebriated state. There is someone around Viraj who is responsible for him turning into Vishpurush! Vrinda hits her. Surili takes her inside their room. Vrinda lies to everyone that it might be because of the medicines she is taking. She excuses herself.
Sitara tells Padmini to be with Rani Ma. She must be in shock. Padmini goes. Sitara wonders why Albeli said that there is someone around her who is turning Viraj into Vishpurush. Who can it be?
Lakshmi cries holding Viraj’s hand while he is sleeping. Yamini says why all this is happening to our family. First it was Ratan and now Viraj! Lakshmi says I cannot believe that my son is turning into Vishpurush. Padmini says this is true. Bhabhi kept fast to make him normal only. She is fighting / risking her life every second to protect us. You were misunderstanding her. I swear Bhai is with us because of Bhabhi only. Vrinda and her sisters are responsible for all this. We made a very big mistake by trusting them! Lakshmi walks out of the room.
Vrinda throws water on Albeli to bring her to her senses. You uttered everything outside! You ruined my hard work! She holds Albeli by her throat. I will kill you if anything goes wrong in my plan of Viraj turning into a Vishpurush! Albeli coughs just as Vrinda lets go of her. Vrinda says Viraj must become a Vishpurush! Lakshmi slaps her. I wont spare anyone if anything happens to my son! Fix whatever you have done to him right away or you will see the worse of me! Vrinda smiles. She tells Albeli her foolishness did one right thing. We wont have to act in front of anyone anymore. They come in their real avatar.
Lakshmi is stunned to see them in their Vishkanya avatar. She looks away in fear as Vrinda inches closer. Vrinda tells her that Viraj is no more her son but a Vishpurush. He will become our ally by the time navratre will end! Lakshmi picks a sword. I wont let it happen. Vrinda uses her powers to make her lose her balance. I could have killed you right away if I wanted to but you have a lot to see! Lakshmi asks them to leave. I have understood that the will was a drama! Vrinda asks her how she will prove it. Go and ask your DIL what her real identity is! Lakshmi looks at them confused. What do you mean? Vishkanya’s laugh. Lakshmi wonders if Sitara is also a Vishkanya!
Viraj and his family are seated in his home. He feels dizzy as he drinks water. He turns into Vishpurush right in front of his family members. Yamini screams seeing him thus. Viraj growls. He turns towards them. Sitara uses her powers to bind him. Yamini and Arjun look on in shock. She asks the family members to go outside. They run off in fear. Sitara cries seeing Viraj’s state.
Sitara is crying in the house temple. The diya is in her hand. My truth is out in front of everyone along with the Vishkanya’s. Vrinda mocks her. Your dream of becoming the ideal DIL just broke into pieces! Sitara asks her what she wants. Who will accept a Vishkanya as their DIL? You will be thrown out of the house. I feel so bad for you but your mother will hold you when everyone will push you away! It is my duty after all. Servant informs Sitara that Rani Ma has called her.
Sitara comes to Lakshmi’s room with the diya. What happened to your hand? Rani Sa replies that she isn’t a Rani Ma of a Vishkanya. I am Rani Lakshmi Devi for you. I want to throw you out right away but I am helpless because of what my son is turning into! I am surrounded by enemies all around. I very well know that only you can save us from this problem! Yamini looks on.Sitara nods. You don’t have to worry till the time I am here. I wont let anyone harm my family or Viraj till the time I am here! I wont let him become Vishpurush. Please trust me.
Lakshmi reasons that she broke it already by hiding her truth from them. She removes the tabeez (amulet) which Ratan had given her for her protection. I give it to you today! Sitara is touched as Lakshmi ties the amulet on her arm. I pray that God gives you the strength to fight with our enemies! Sitara thanks her. She bends down to seek her blessings but Lakshmi points out that she just made her their protector (shield). I wont accept a Vishkanya as my DIL ever! You will leave my son and family the moment you save us from this trouble! I don’t want even your shadow around my family! Sitara is in tears. You are right. This is the right thing to do. She keeps her hand over the diya. I vow to leave the house as soon as Viraj is fine and you get rid of those Vishkanya’s. Lakshmi looks away. Sitara leaves.
Sitara tells Padmini that Vishkanya’s will try to create an obstacle in their puja till the time the navtratre are over. I am sure they will be plotting something even now as we speak! She looks at Diya and recalls what Albeli had said. We will be busy in Jagran entire night. Vishkanya’s will surely try to create a hindrance in our puja. We have Devi Ma’s Prasad with which we can foil their plans. She pours a few drops of some red liquid on the table. Padmini assures Sitara that she will be with her. Sitara dips Diya’s feet in that water and creates a circle of water around Diya. She asks Padmini to protect dhaan and diya while she herself goes to make preps for puja. Sitara vows to find out the truth!
