August 1st Episode
Shagun going to stop Pihu. Simmi takes Amma for puja. Shagun asks Pihu to cover the burn mark and be careful. Adi and Aaliya play the mantras on net and do rituals, while Bala and Vandu go the puja. Everyone smile. Pandit comes and says sorry, I came late as there was emergency at home, did you start puja, its all done nicely here. Dadi says these kids did this, Raman and Mani should be happy that Adi and Aaliya are linked to their values despite being new generation, I m proud of them.
Pandit says now we will start satyanarayan puja, and asks all married couples to sit. Dadi says yes, young and married couples can sit in puja. She asks Bala-Vandu, Raman-ishita and Mani-Shagun to come. Bala’s mum says stop, Raman and Ishita can’t sit in this puja. Dadi asks
why, its couple puja, husband and wife can sit. Bala’s mum asks is there marriage legal, Raman and Ishita did not stay together for 7 years, Ishita used to stay with Mani, and Raman used to stay with his ex wife Shagun, they were marrying when Ishita came back, is this marriage, they are doing what they want, you were saying about rituals, now tell me can Raman and Ishita sit here. Raman and Ishita look on. Vandu asks Bala’s mum not to say this nonsense.
Bala’s mum says I m saying truth. Shagun thinks Pihu should not know this past, I should take her. She goes. Bala’s mum asks is these relations, what will we tell our children, there is no value of marriage, will you get Aaliya married in such house, Aaliya will become like them, they don’t know meaning of marriage. Bala asks his mum to stop it. Amma and Mr. Bhalla ask Bala’s mum how can she say this.
Dadi shouts enough now. She goes to Mani and asks is this true that you and Ishita lived together in Australia, I did not know this, tell me. Mani says its not like you are thinking, so much happened 7 years ago. Dadi asks him to answer yes or no, Shagun was living with Raman, you stayed with Ishita, tell me. Mani says yes aunty but 7 years ago… Dadi shouts its all over, there is no use to stay here now. She gets angry and leaves. Mani goes after Dadi to explain. Ishita cries.
Everyone console Aaliya at Bhalla house. Vandu apologizes that she could not control Bala’s mum. She says sorry Raman, I will apologize to Dadi. Dadi and Mani come. Dadi says no need to say anything. Dadi asks is this called family, Ishita stayed with Mani as a couple, I did not know what’s this connection, Aaliya called you Amma, are you showing this way to Aaliya, you acted to die and stayed with Mani, a man and woman can’t stay without marriage, Raman stayed with Shagun without marriage, what is this culture, I m sorry, I don’t believe this, will I send Aaliya in this family, its good Bala’s mum told me everything, else I would have spoiled Aaliya’s life. Mr. Bhalla says its not like that. Dadi says we are simple people and this does not happen in our house, Adi and Aaliya can’t marry, Aaliya come with me. Aaliya cries and asks her to listen.
Adi comes with his bag and cries. Dadi asks Aaliya to come, I will wait. Adi and Aaliya hug and cry. Everyone cry seeing them. Bala asks his mum to understand Adi and Aaliya’s lives will spoil, what was the need. She says I said truth, do you have problem, world says this about Raman and Ishita. Bala asks her to stop it, what was the need to tell Dadi, you say anything to Ishita, you crossed limit to point at Raman and Ishita’s marriage, what proof you want to know their marriage is authentic, come and talk to Dadi. She refuses. Amma and Appa look on.
Mani holds Aaliya and asks her to come. Aaliya says no. Mani asks her to come. She says I can’t live without Adi. Adi says this is our test, what did we decide, that we will win each other’s father’s heart, this is part of it, Dadi is upset, we will obey her decision. She cries. He asks can we stay together without Dadi’s blessing, no… He apologizes to Mani and says I could not win, I felt I m winning your heart, but no, Dadi expects a lot from me, I came back as we could not fulfil her expectations, but my love for Aaliya will never get less, don’t worry, we will not take a wrong step that your, Ishi Maa and Papa’s head bow down, we will wait for your decision and accept it. Mani and Raman too get tearful eyes. Adi gives Aaliya’s hand to Mani and asks her to go. Ishita cries seeing Adi crying. Mani, Aaliya and Dadi leave.
Later at night, Ishita goes to Adi and sits by his side, while he is sleeping. She cries and holds him. She apologizes. He wakes up and sees her. He asks why are you crying. She says I lost everyone and you lost Aaliya because of me, I m worst mum, I m sorry, I m feeling so sorry. He says no, don’t cry, its nothing like that, you know we were just living in your absence, now there is a life in our family, don’t blame yourself, you should be happy, you stayed away and became Aaliya’s Amma, so that Aaliya does not get jealous that just I have a good Ishi Maa, Lord knew Adi and Aaliya will share life, so we shared our Amma, Aaliya is your daughter and will take decisions like you. She smiles and hugs him.
She says I m lucky to have you as my son. He says I m lucky to have you as my mum. She asks is he fine. He says yes, I m fine, all this does not matter, this bad time will not stay for long, everything will get fine. She says good. He asks her to go and sleep. She asks him not to cry. He says you don’t cry. She gets up and sees Aaliya’s pic near his pillow. He says nothing. She says it matters to you and hugs him. She keeps pic under pillow and asks him to sleep, and tell me if there is anything. She goes. Adi and Aaliya see each other’s pic and cry hugging the pic.
Ishita coming to room. Raman asks where did you go, sit, I have to check your BP, what are you thinking. She says Adi and Aaliya love each other a lot, did you see how they were hugging and crying, they are best children, we are worst parents, they don’t deserve this, Adi told me he does not care, but Aaliya’s pic was under his pillow, he loves Aaliya a lot, he is lying to us as he can’t see us sad. He says Adi is your son to sacrifice his happiness and think for others, its my fault, why are you blaming yourself, it was my mistake 7 years ago and my family had to bear this, when you returned, I did not be nice and scolded you, that’s why Pihu got away, I was not accepting because of Mani.
She says look at brighter side, whatever mistakes we did, our
children are so good, we are lucky. He says I felt Adi has grown up, he has managed Aaliya with maturity, I regret I could not understand my son and his love, but I promise you I will get Adi and Aaliya married, even if I have to beg to her Dadi, anything, but my son will not suffer because of my mistakes, I promise, I m foolish to understand late, but I will make things fine. She gets glad and says its okay you understood, shall we go to Dadi tomorrow. He says yes. They hug.
Its morning, Mr. Bhalla asks everyone to behave normal infront of Adi and don’t repeat anything. Simmi agrees. Adi comes and asks Simmi to make aloo parathas for him. Raman asks are you coming office. Adi says yes, I mailed presentation to Romi and Mihir. Romi says it was perfect. Raman says I want Adi to head new project. Adi thanks Raman and asks Ishita to make sweets. Ishita says I will make paisam and goes. Mr. Bhalla asks Ishita not to worry, Adi looks normal. Ishita cries and says no, he loves us, he is doing this so that we don’t feel bad. He says I m worried his pain can come out any other way, you are brave to manage pain, but don’t know what will Adi do.
Adi thinks family should think I m normal, Aaliya should agree now. Ananya asks Pihu to come and play in ground, all classmates went. Pihu says no, I don’t want to. Ananya insists and holds her hand. Pihu screams. Ananya sees the burn marks on her hand and says sorry, I did not see, how did this happen. Pihu says my hand burnt by my mistake, promise me you won’t say anyone, else I won’t talk to you. Ananya promises.
Shagun says Aaliya, I was thinking to go mall for shopping. Aaliya refuses. Mani comes. Shagun asks shall we go and buy diyas. Aaliya says no, I don’t want to buy anything. Dadi comes and asks Mani to call taxi for her, my bags are ready. Mani says your flight is not booked. She says I m going by train, get ticket printout. Aaliya asks where are you going. Dadi says you would be thinking whats happening, I did this for your good. She coughs. Aaliya makes her drink water and says you have fever, how will you travel. Dadi says I m fine, I will leave. Aaliya goes to her room and talks to Adi. She asks what, are you sure, fine, I will do as you say, I m with you. She ends call.
Raman asks Mihir why did he wait for this till last min, I have to rush to Mani’s house to meet Dadi. Mihir says its imp. Ishita asks why did he keep this till now. Raman asks him to take Adi’s sign. Mihir says Adi did not come office, he went with Romi. Raman says its good if he is occupied. Ishita asks Mihir to keep Adi busy, we will go and hold Dadi’s feet directly to convince her. Raman and Ishita are leaving from office. Mani and Dadi come there. Dadi asks where is my Aaliya. Ishita says we don’t know. Dadi says your son has eloped with Aaliya. Mani says yes, Aaliya is missing, Dadi was leaving, Aaliya did not come to bid bye. Adi and Aaliya are not reachable. Raman and Ishita say they would never do that. Raman says Adi went with Romi to meeting. Romi comes. Raman asks Romi to say about Adi. Romi says Adi is missing, he was going to meet me in hotel, Adi looked upset, I m scared. Raman says Adi was your responsibility.
Dadi says you trust Adi, they both are missing now, if they both marry, then I will…. She cries. Raman and Ishita worry. Dadi says Adi changed colors, he was acting good and innocent when he was in our house, this is your culture, if you don’t know meaning of marriage, children will do this. Ishita says enough. Raman holds her. Ishita says no, I have to say, we have given right values and thinking to children, both Adi and Aaliya can’t do this, I m sure its something else. Dadi asks what will they do, they can stay without marriage if they don’t marry like their Amma and Appa. Mani asks Dadi to stop it. Dadi says Aaliya is not your blood, so you won’t understand. Mani says please… Dadi scolds Ishita and says you are acting innocent. She asks Mani to call police and complain about Adi. Raman says no, we will find Adi, Romi check. Ishita says we should find out, why are we blaming them. Mani says Ishita is right. Dadi says find Aaliya. Mani says we will find them, you are unwell, sit. They make calls to Adi and Aaliya’s friends.
Mrs. Bhalla thinks why is Pihu sitting upset. Pihu eats food and asks Mrs. Bhalla to go, she does not want to talk. She goes. Mrs. Bhalla asks kids to go and play, Pihu is unwell. She says why did Pihu talk to me like this.
Simmi asks what, how can they say this, Dadi has got after Adi. Romi says I will hold on phone, check Adi’s belongings. Simmi says its all on place. Romi says it means they did not run away, I think Shagun or Ashok kidnapped them, I will keep an eye on Ashok, you keep an eye on Shagun. She says fine, if its Shagun this time, I will not leave her.
Amma finds Mrs. Bhalla crying and asks what happened. Mrs. Bhalla says Pihu does not want to talk to me, I did not say her anything, I know kids shout in anger, I m worried why was she disturbed and sad, what happened to her. Amma says Pihu is happy child, how did she get sad. Ananya hears them and says I know reason of Pihu’s sadness, but I can’t them them, as I promised Pihu.
Romi informs Simmi that he is going to Ashok’s place and check, you don’t worry. Simmi says I went to Mani’s house, Shagun is not there, I got to know she went to mall, I m going there. He asks her to be careful. Raman and Ishita try to find about Adi. Mani tries to ask Aaliya’s friends. Dadi says stop this, call police Mani, I will not leave them if I don’t get Aaliya. Ishita says you stop this, my children won’t run, they would have run before, winning your trust was imp, I want to know where did Adi go, stop this negative thinking, I hope nothing happened to them, I m so so worried.
Dadi gets a call and reacts shocked. Raman, Ishita and Mani get tensed seeing Dadi’s reaction. Dadi says Mani, I have to go station. Mani asks what happened, I will drop you. Dadi says nothing, send driver, I will go. Dadi leaves. Ishita says what happened, whose call was it.
