The Shekhar family are shown outdoors where the woman folk (except Sachi) and the men (except Shiv (S) and Mahi) are making ‘bati’ (which is a food item). S is working on some documents. Sachi comes to the scene where she expresses her displeasure about the batis being cooked on a flame fueled by cow dung. Daddu replies that, that is the right way of making batis. He tells her that the taste will be unique. S and Anandi (S) exchange glances at each other. Mahi also comes to the spot and complaints about the food not being ready since he is already feeling hungry. Daddu tells Mahi that bati can satiate his hunger but not his senses. Sachi then tells everyone that next week she is going to make batis in Kesar bagh. Everyone looks surprised hearing this come from her mouth and then are shown excited by the thought of going to Udaipur. S and A look serious. A puts a bati on the flame but in the bargain her hand brushes against the flame. Ira asks her what happened when she replies that she only got a little hurt. Seeing this S runs to her to attend to her. S holds her hand and gently blows over it as A looks at him. Everyone is happy seeing S’s concern for A. S and A share an eyelock. Seeing this Mahi teases S to also blow over the flames so that the batis get done quickly. This embarrasses S and A and S goes back to his chair. Ira then exclaims that Kesar Bagh will blossom when all of them will stay together. Daddu then tells Ira to thank him for that. Everyone wonders why? Daddu replies that during S and A’s wedding he had spoken to the Chief Minister telling him that since S was posted in Jaitser he has hardly been with the family. Now that he is married the family would like to spend time with the couple. Hence the transfer was done. Alok teases daddu saying that even he could have used his contacts to make this happen but he did not want to misuse it.
Seeing a serious S daddu asks him why he doesn’t look happy. S replies that he is happy but is also disappointed since there is a lot of work pending and half done in Jaitser which he wanted to see till its completion. He is feeling bad that he will have to break people’s hopes by his transfer. Sachi then tells S that a small village like Jaitser will always need some improvement, that doesn’t mean he will have to continue living in substandard conditions. This angers S and he tells her that she has no right to call a village substandard just because she lives in a city. He goes on telling her that A has helped Jaitser progress alot compared to other villages. Very soon there will be a 100% literacy rate along with other amenities. The family looks proud hearing this about their daughter-in-law. Sachi then agrees but counter argues saying that the collector who will take over from S will also be able to complete all these unfinished projects. S agrees that the new collector will be able to finish the projects but will not be able to fulfill dreams. Alok says that he doesn’t understand since everyone needs to adjust to the situation and in turn make new goals. Sachi then asks S whether he is not happy to go to Udaipur since A is not happy to leave? Sachi asks A if she is upset since she will have to live away from her family. A doesn’t answer.
Daddu then tells Sachi that she has a point. He tells A that in the happiness of having them live with the family they forgot to ask A’s opinion about moving to Udaipur. Meenu also raises the question while the family looks forward to A’s reply. A is left in thought. A replies that every understanding girl after marriage accepts her in-laws house and hence she would have to leave Jaitser sooner or later. But she thought that she had some time left to do something for her village and hence she does feel a little bad to leave. But the happiness to live with the family exceeds this sad feeling. Everyone is happy and Meenu says that she knew that A would give such an answer which would not need any further questioning. She then says that she has started understanding her daughter-in-law well now. A thanks Meenu for trusting her so much. She softly says that she hopes everyone could trust her that much. Everyone including A looks at S on hearing this. Ira tells A that we are hurt when our dear one misunderstand us but one also needs to forgive and forget it. S then says that when someone loves a person very much he is scared of hurting that persons feelings due to which he may make a mistake. But in such cases the person is forgiven soon. This leaves A thinking.
Dadi Sa (DS) is in the living room with Bhairav (B), Sumitra, Jagya and Basant. DS tells them that before Ira returns they should invite them home for food. Bhairav agrees and says that it will be good to invite the whole family for food. B asks Sumi if she will be able to manage everything alone. Sumi replies that in order to spend time with her daughter she can manage anything. Ganga (G) then comes there telling Sumi that she will help Sumi in all the cooking as soon as she returns from the temple.

Seeing that everyone feels sorry for G. DS sees G’s bear ears and realizes that it is the earring she wore daily. G sees DS looking at her ears and says that it is real gold and hence its not a bad offering. DS says that she is concerned because that’s the only ornament G possess. G replies that the value of the earrings are nothing is front of her baby and if it were in her capacity she would have offered many more. Jagya (J) tells G that he will drop her at the temple. But G refuses to which J asks her if she is scared to ride on the bike. G replies that she is not. So J tells her that he will drop her and in the bargain also pray. G agrees and they leave. J starts the bike but G is hesitant to sit on it due to Mannu. J tells her that he will drive carefully and tells her to keep Mannu between the two of them.
