Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat 15th August 2016 Written Episode
Kaurvaki comes to her room. She finds it decorated beautifully. She happily walks over flower petals and looks around in surprise. There is a plate kept on the sofa. She finds a small box on it. She opens it to find a mirror inside it. She notices Ashoka’s reflection in it and smiles. Ashoka walks up to her and hugs her from behind. She asks him what happened. Did you forget to keep the gift? He says it is empty now but we will fill it with our love, memories. It will have the memories of the time we will spend together after our wedding. Whenever we will look at it, it will remind us of our long journey here. Kaurvaki adds that a very long journey is still left. He shows her the little statue she had given to him in the childhood. You still have it? He says you gave it to me after
all. She shows a small stone to him. They keep it in the box together and share a hug.
Dharma is grinding turmeric. Chanda’s mother is also doing the same. It is for the next ritual (haldi ceremony). Charu. Chanda’s mother and Dharma speak about the significance of this ritual. Every mother does it for her SIL. The leftover turmeric will be sent to her daughter then. It is a ritual. Once the ritual completes then everything will go well.
Ashoka and Kaurvaki are together. She is resting her head on his chest lovingly. She lowers her eyes shyly as he keeps looking at her sweetly. O priyatam plays. He moves the strand away from her face and touches her cheek. They lean closer but she gets up feeling shy. He holds her hand.
Dharma suddenly shouts in shock as the turmeric turns red. Blood! Devi looks and says it is turmeric only. Dharma too realises the same. it was my illusion. Pardon me. Charu thinks Dharma always wants everyone to look at her only. Everyone gathers hearing Dharma’s voice. Jagannath advises Bindu to call off the wedding. These are all bad signs. Hasting for something can bring bad luck for us. Bindu stays put on his decision. This wedding will surely happen and it will be historic.
Devi stops Kaurvaki from coming to kitchen. Be in your room. Your haldi will come there only. Ashoka notices the tensed look on his mother’s face.
Devi comes to Kauravki’s room. Kaurvaki says you are from the groom’s side. Why are you here then? Devi denies. I am from the bride’s side. Vit says you switched sides so soon. One cannot trust anyone. Devi says it doesn’t matter. I am from both the sides. Vit says we will decide that later. Bhaiya is waiting. He runs out with the bowl of haldi. Everyone smiles.
Ladies teases Ashoka on the ceremony. Your bachelor life will end now. Ashoka asks for his mother. Vit takes him with him.
Devi is taking haldi for Kaurvaki when Jagannath meets her in the corridor. Devi says Kaurvaki will become Ashoka’s after today. Jagannath reasons that blood relation is over everything. In the end, Kaurvaki will choose her blood and not love. so the wedding will surely turn out to be historic! Devi leaves.
Ashoka changes and comes for the haldi ritual. Dharma starts the ritual. She recalls the time when he was born and of all their struggles till date. Her lullaby plays in the background. Both Ashoka and Dharma get emotional. Dharma says I am surprised that such a peaceful and good moment will come in our struggling life. Devi comes there. Dharma asks her to join her.
Acharya RG informs Bindu that Ujjaini has been attacked. Bindu is shocked.
Dharma suddenly sees blood all over Ashoka. She is startled and stunned. Blood! Ashoka gets concerned. Are you fine? She says nothing has happened. ashoka is sure something is up. You are hiding something from me for sure. Dharma dismisses it. She sends Ashoka with Vit. Dharma asks Devi about the Baba she met. I have to meet him asap.
Bindu tells Acharya RG to make sure Ashoka does not get to know about it. You should go to Ujjaini with a troop right away. Acharya RG nods and leaves. Bindu wonders why so many problems are coming during Ashoka’s wedding.
Baba says you will get worried by your questions. Dharma replies that she will find her peace. Tell me what you think. Baba tells her to forget about this wedding. It will only bring destruction. There will be a big war between Patliputra and Kalinga. Such war has never happened before. It will only bring destruction. So many people will be killed. Sky will turn red. Only one person will stand alone amidst all of it. Ashoka is seen standing around thousands of dead bodies (in the vision). Dharma says I wont let it happen. He says it doesn’t matter what you will think. What has to happen will happen. This girl only will bring peace and calm to Ashoka. She will get him on the right path. Dharma is confused. Why will Kaurvaki do so? She will never do it. I will not let her do something like that. He says you will soon find the right girl for Ashoka. You yourself will break this wedding then. Dharma says why I will do that. I thought you are knowledgeable but you are not even good enough person. I don’t know why I listened to Devi. I shouldn’t have come here at all. Ashoka is a saviour. He saves people. He will never become the reason of so many people losing their lives. She walks away. Baba says she doesn’t know she is the one who will stop this decision. She will have to give her life to follow this decision.
Acharya RG has gathered his soldiers. He speaks to them about the impending war. We have to make sure the palace is safe as the princes are soon going to marry. Ashoka comes there. Acharya RG does not tell him about the attack. We are making security preps for the wedding. I will handle everything. Ashoka leaves.

Siamak wants to go in the treasury room. Ashoka tells him he has the responsibility of internal security. No one can go inside without my or father’s permission.
