The Episode starts with Niranjan about to slap Anjali as the food got much spicy. Astha sees them and Niranjan looks at her and becomes calm. He says Anjali, you did not learn to cook, what will you teach to your bahus. He leaves. Astha thinks Anjali got scolded because of her as she has come late. Astha comes to Anjali and says sorry. Anjali says he is my husband and can tell me anything, you have done a big mistake by not listening to me, you are the bahu, you have some duties, you have to do this work and I had to do this as you did not come on time. Astha says forgive me thinking its my last mistake, I promise I won’t do this again and I m sorry.
Anjali says fine, don’t go to your mum’s house from today. Astha is shocked. The police comes to
Astha’s house and comes to arrest Avdhoot. Kalindi and Avdhoot are shocked. Kalindi says you can’t arrest him, he did not do anything. Avdhoot says listen to me, the police takes him. This was Avdhoot’s dream. He wakes up tensed and Kalindi offers him water. He is worried about his work and the blame on him. He gets a call from Astha at night and talks to her. Astha asks are you fine. He says yes, but why did you call at this time. Astha says I was missing you all, thinking about my childhood.
He says you are always a kid for me. He says don’t worry about me. Astha says I m not so small that I can’t understand your pain. She says everything will be fine like before, when you did not do anything wrong, Bappa won’t let anything happen. Avdhoot blesses her and says yes, nothing will happen. She says its night, you sleep now, bye. He ends the call and smiles. Astha is crying in her room. She sees Shlok sitting infront of her with his phone.
Shlok says so you spoke to your dad. He says you made a call, not its my turn, maybe you won’t like it. Astha takes the phone from his hand. He says how dare you take my phone like this. She says I m sorry, I won’t do it again, my dad is much worried, please help me. She says bring him out of this fraud case. Shlok smiles and says he will and asks her to remove his shoes. Astha cries and gives him his phone back. She removes his shoes and he smiles like an evil. He looks at her and likes her tears.
He looks at her angrily. Anjali is making the sleeping arrangements and comes to Niranjan and does his foot massage. Niranjan says why don’t you do anything well. He says you have hold yourself to hold Astha. He says you are not a good wife and not a good mum. He says now you are not even a good saas. He says improve yourself. He scolds her and pushes her. He says if I take everything in my hand, it will be not good for you. Anjali says you don’t worry, I will take care of everything.
She says I will explain Astha. The next morning, Astha comes to Anjali. Anjali says did you eat anything, Astha says no. Anjali gives her a saree and asks her to go and wear it and its Nirjal fast for
Pati Pujan Vrath. Astha says I did not hear about this before, I won’t keep it.
Anjali tells the importance of the Vrath to Astha. Shlok comes and hears this. Astha says no one keeps it, why should we keep it, I m sorry I won’t keep this Vrath. Shlok says Astha you have to keep it, its our tradition, don’t worry, I will tell you how to keep this Vrath. He smiles. He says you have to pray to your husband as Lord, as I m your Lord, you have to preach me. Astha looks on. Shlok says what happened Astha, did you mum not told you that a husband is a Lord, who is to be preached. He leaves.
Anjali says its not about tradition, but about trust, and I won’t let anyone break the trust. Astha tries to change Anjali’s thoughts but Anjali says control your tongue if you want to be happy. She says go and change now. jyoti is with Abhay. He sees his sandals. jyoti says I will clean it. He says go and get ready, we need to go to your house. jyoti is happy. Abhay says I m coming with you and its Pati Pujan today, you have to do it even if you don’t like. He says your dad called us there. jyoti is tensed. jyoti’s mum in law asks her not to wear the jewellery and smiles looking at Abhay.
Astha comes to her room with the saree and says I did not hear about this puja ever. She says I will ask Ajju, she knows everything. Astha calls Ajju and Ajju says we miss you, everything is fine here. Astha says I need to ask something, whats Pati pujan and whats its importance. Ajju says why are you asking. Astha says because we have it today. Ajju says in this you have to pray to your husband and keep the fast for him. She says every house has different trends, if they want you to do it, then do it, its nothing wrong.
Astha agrees and thanks her. Shlok comes to her and Astha turns to see him. They look at each other. He sees the saree. She hides her phone. He says you did not change till now. She says no, as I won’t do this puja. He says you can’t say no now, its an old tradition of our house. Astha says I won’t do this, how can someone do this mistake, how can someone equate her husband to Lord. She asks him to become a good human being before becoming Lord. He holds her smiling and says tell ,me whats bad in me, I don’t lie, I do what I say.
He gets close to her and says even if you don’t believe, I don’t care. I m your Lord now. Your dad’s fate in in my hands, and I m the Lord. Astha says don’t dare to do anything to my dad. He says sweetheart, keep me happy then it will be good, else I can do anything. Astha looks at him and he says change now and leaves.
Shlok takes Astha’s photo and says this is Kirloskar’s modern daughter, she got ready to do the Pati Pujan. He asks how much do you love me.
