Ganga 21st July 2015 Written Episode
Yash too questions Ganga. Why did you come to school wearing this? She retorts why he is worried. He points out at the kids standing in the punishment line. They haven’t worn the uniform correctly so they have been punished. You came in a white saree. He smirks. He calls out for the teacher who is punishing the kids who aren’t wearing appropriate uniform. He asks her if she studies here. Ganga shows him her result. I have come here to study. He asks her if she will come like this. This isn’t our uniform. No student can enter in the classroom in this style. She asks him if this isn’t good. I too am study. I have cleared the exam. Why cant I? I will come like this only. He takes her to the Principal’s room. Yash is sure Ganga will be scolded now.
Amma ji distributes sarees and rudraksh mala to the ladies. Omkar takes over when Sudha’s turn is coming near. A few of the ladies who know about this incident aren’t comfortable. Amma ji asks Sudha to bring water for her. Omkar too excuses himself. Prabha wonders why he said it to her instead of Amma ji. The ladies recognize Omkar. He is the same man who came there that day. Another lady nods. He was staring nonstop at her and she too was looking at him. It might not be from one side.
Principal tells Ganga that she will have to wear school uniform if she has to come to the school. She still persists. Why cant I study like this? He replies that he cannot change the rules of the school for her. She wonders about the rules everywhere. Amma ji wants me to follow the dharma of a widow and you want me to wear a uniform. What am I supposed to do! She shows her result to him. I did so well in the exam and cleared it. Please let me come. He is helpless as he cannot change the rules for one person. I have to maintain discipline in school as well. I am sorry. Ganga walks outside sadly.
Omkar pins Sudha to the wall. He is unaffected by her threats. He reminds her that she is a woman. People wont believe a woman come what may. Have you met someone like me ever before? I just want to bring some colours in your lonely life. Sudha knows what he wants. You wont be successful in this. He asks her the reason for it. She replies that she cannot let such a disgusting man’s shadow fall on her. You have insulted me enough. People have started gossiping about it. He says people are talking as you are stopping yourself. She reminds him that she is a widow. What you are talking is adharma. You are trying to be sympathetic to me so I kneel down before you. Impossible! I will not keep any relation with a man like you. He says I am just giving you respect. More beautiful women than you are dying to be with me. She retorts that she has already shown him his place in the temple that day. Go away from me. Madhvi hides before he can see her. Omkar walks out angrily. Sudha is in tears. She connects all the incidents from the beginning. Drishti had told me a lot about him. I had no idea he could stoop so low!
Ganga sits outside. There will be a school in Banaras where the kids wear white sarees. I will study in that school only. She asks a tea vendor but he has no idea. He offers her samosas but she points out that she is a widow. I cannot eat fried stuff or anything like that. A girl comes to buy samosas. She is wearing white uniform. Ganga stops her from eating it as she mistakes her for a widow. The girl clears that it is her school uniform. Ganga gets an idea. The clothes are full, a suit! Amma ji wont mind it. The girl sits in the auto and leaves with her friends. Ganga tries to run after them but in vain. Sagar notices her. What are you still doing here? Ganga shares about what she had just seen. Amma ji don’t like it if I wear colourful uniform. She wont stop me if I go to a school wearing white uniform. He likes the idea. You are so smart. They both think how to find out about such a school. She points out that the laptop can help them. It can tell anything. He runs to bring it. They both sit down to find a school where the uniform is white. The recess gets over but Sagar is still not able to track down any such school. Peon comes to call Sagar. Go to the class. Sagar finally tracks down the school and gives the address to Ganga. It is very far from here though. She doesn’t mind doing anything for studies. It is in Banaras after all. He gives her money to take an auto or something. She takes it as a loan. I will return it to you. He gives up as it is no point saying anything to her.
Ganga reaches the school but is told that the admissions have been closed. She requests the Principal to allow her in the class. I want to study. It is very important for me. I cannot wear colourful uniform. I can study here only. Amma ji wont let me go to any other school. I am a widow. The ladies are taken aback. A few ladies ask her about her marriage and how her husband died so soon. Ganga shows them her result. I will study harder than I did for that bigger school. I will make you proud and it will be good for your school too. Please let me study here. The ladies give in to her request. Get someone from your house so the form can be filled. You will have to arrange for your books and uniform. We will see how much you study. Girls can study here for free till 8th standard. There will be no fees. You can do that much atleast.
Precap: Madhvi asks Ganga if she overheard the convo between Omkar and Sudha that day. Ganga dint hear anything. I saw Sudha Bua slapping Amma ji’s SIL hard and pushed him. Niru overhears their convo.
