The lady emanwhile wonders why hasnt santoshi returned. ganga comes with ammaji, and assures her that santoshi would be around. ammaji and santoshi’s sister in law meet and echange introduction, while the festivities continue on. ammaji later takes ganga aside, and asks her to stay put, and not wander around, as she doesnt want unecessary drama regarding her family since they know her. she then points out lovingly at sagar, while ganga resignedly fumes. Santoshi meanwhile joins her sister, in line to wait to bless the woman and her child. they bear on, as all people give her gifts and bless her. she then explains all th rituals to santoshi, who performs them all. then she tries to get ganga to perform, who is reluctant though. ragini intervenes and says that she shall do too. santishi denies. but ganga asks her to let her do it. santoshi resignedly agrees, and then takes ragini to do so. santoshi sits beside a lady, and compliments her earrings, while she finds it weird. ganga finds ragini almost toppling the gifts plate over, and rushes to grab it to prevent it from falling. one of the ladies stops her, asking how dare she commit this big omen. the other ladies start pointing out barbed accusations. santoshi’s sister wonders why are they referring to her as widow, when she is dressed in coloured clothes. she then confronts ganga saying that they wouldnt have allowed ganga to take part in the rituals. ragini lashes at them not to irritate ganga, as she isnt wrong. rani meanwhile lashes at ammaji for bringing ganga here, and look at what she has done to them and their function now. ganga asks her to talk to her, not to ammaji. but she still has to face retort. the ladies continue to reprimand and insult her, saying that she is the reason, people dont go to visit ammaji’s house. santoshi fumes. they say that they are modern but not to this extent. Ammaji is tensed, that there might be accusations hurled at her, and she might have to face insults too. ladies too start gossiping, and finally one of them comments that its indeed true, that since they have kept this philandering girl in the house, and the son of the house is after her romantically, then they dont have a right to cast accusations at anyone else. sagar refuses to speak up, waiting for ammaji to take her stand, towards ganga once and for all. she starts pointing out that had she been in ganga’s place she wouldnt have ever done this, and god knows what harm she caused the unborn baby. he continues to apologise saying that today he cant do anything, as if he says anything, then ammaji would never stand up for her, and hopes that she says something to salvage ganga’s respect, as its now or never. Meanwhile, santoshi lashes and starts reprimanding them for being so hard on a girl who became a widow, when she didnt even udnerstand the meaning of it. but she is shut by her sister, that a widow is a widow, irrespective of age. sagar thinks that he has had enough, and cant listen silently anymore. but before he can speak, ammaji lashes at her and asks her to stay shut, as they have spoken enough, and if anyoen says anything against ganga, noone shall be as hard as her. she asks what omen she talks about, as ganga is so powerful that she can take away others’ taints, and she can never be a bad omen. then she turns to rani, and asks where were her family values, when she turned her back from her family, but when ganga was a stranger to them, she showered them with love, that rani too never did. she says that they are right that she has attitude, but what they find as attitude, is actually her self respect, that doesnt make her bow to anyone, but they wont understand it. he is overwhelmed. she says that ganga speaks the truth, which people cant fathom, and that she must have done something nice in her previous birth, that she got ganga in this avatar. she tells ganga that she has always given her pain, but she converted in into happienss, and showered it on her and her family only. she says that she shall always pray that in some birth, she becomes ganga’s mother. santoshi is elated. ammaji gets overwhelmed while santoshi says that she indeed spoke right, and starts clapping along with ragini, while the other ladies fume. ammaji says that this isnt needed, and that she is a widow, and hence knows these rules arent made by the lord, but the society strips them of colours. she says that they feel ganga is a widow and brings bad omen, to every ritual and function. she takes sagar by the hand and leads her to ganga, and then takes ganga’s hand in the other. both are boggled. she says that ganga isnt a widow from this day forth. she takes ganga’s hand, and gives it in sagar. ammaji tells everyone that from this day forth, she declares that ganga is a part of their family, as sagar’s would be wedded wife. they are shocked, while ganga and sagar are overwhelmed. she asks why are they silent, as ganga is sagar’s fiancee now, and extends an invitation to them all for marriage, and announces ganga’s marriage with sagar. she says that now by this new status, she can perform all the rituals that are to be done. all are silenced. sagar proclaims that ganga is his would be wife, and if anyone says anything against her, it wouldnt be nice. santoshi praises his guts and indirectly lashes at rani and her own sister too. they resignedly comply. Ganga gets to performing the rituals with her.
