Archana is at her house. Archana thinks to herself, why has Purvi not come back yet? She has been gone for a long time, I don\’t know what must have happened. She may have fought with Arjun. Purvi comes in the house. She is very happy.
Purvi: aai, I told you that I would win. I won.
Archana: What happened over there Purvi?
Purvi: aai, Arjun listened to all of my conditions to get me back on the job.
Archana: What do you mean by all conditions?
Purvi: You see, you will be getting a notice soon to re join the office.
Archana: But Purvi? Archana gets a phone call. It is one of her friends.
Archana\’s friend: Hello Archu, I have called you to give you some good news. The company has called us back to the job.
Archana: This is very good but how did this happen?
Archana\’s friend: I just got the notice sent to me. We will talk tomorrow at the office.
Archana: This is very good news, I will meet you tomorrow. Archana hangs up.
Purvi: See aai, I told you that I would get you your job back. Archana thinks to herself that since Purvi asked Arjun to do something big, she may fall into a trap.
Archana: Purvi, listen to me.
Purvi: Yes aai.
Archana: What happened was good but look, you have to do everything calmly. There is no need for you to fight with anyone, do everything carefully.
Purvi: aai, this is why I bought home such good news.
Archana: Yes I know that, but the credit goes to Arjun sir as well. Even after what happened, he put all the employees back to work, this is a very big thing.
Purvi: aai, no credit goes to him. He wouldn\’t have terminated the workers if he didn\’t need to and I wouldn\’t need to fight with him. He doesn\’t care about the employees, he just cares about his benefit.
Archana: What are you saying Purvi?
Purvi: aai, you taught me how to fight against unfairness.
Archana: Yes, Purvi, I taught you. And can I say something, I am feeling very happy for you, really.
Purvi: aai, I have been taking the path that you taught me, you have never given up, whether people were with you or not. You always fought and now you made me become like you. Aai, the credit goes to you.
Archana: Ok, now please don\’t praise me anymore, I get embarrassed. I will make some tea for you, you worked very hard today. Archana leaves. Purvi smiles.
Vinod\’s house in the kitchen
Manjusha is at her house. Rasika is over.
Rasika: I had found a boy for Punni, and you will be relived once she gets married.
Manjusha: aai, tell me, they don\’t know anything about Punni, right?
Rasika: Are you crazy? They will not get to know anything, they don\’t live in Mumbai, they won\’t know.
Vinod and Punni are sitting down with the boy who has come to see Punni and his mother. The boy\’s name is Manoj.
Vinod: Where do you work?
Manoj: I work at Jackson International Place. We work with machines.
Vinod: Very nice, where is your office located? Punni rolls her eyes.
Manoj: In Pune.
Vinod: Have you gotten a promotion?
Manoj: Yes, my promotion is due. Punni thinks to herself, what kind of a boy is he, he doesn\’t look handsome at all, and he is not that rich. If I marry this boy, then your life is about to turn miserable. Manjusha and Rasika come over with trays of food.
Manjusha: Our Punni has made all this food. She cooks very good food, you can say that our Punni is a specialist in cooking. Why just cooking, she is very well educated, and along with that, she was also good in dancing and extracurricular activities, she is the best at it. Vinod smiles and whispers to Manjusha that she is going a bit overboard.
Manoj\’s mother: Manoj, Punni, why are the two of you so shy? This is modern life, go out together. If not than at least go inside a room and talk separately. Listen to one another and understand one another. Punni has a smile on her face.
Vinod: Why do they need to talk? We have gotten to know everything about Punni\’s fianc.
Manjusha: Vinod is right, and our Punni is a very good girl.
Manoj\’s mother: But they should still talk to one another. You two go inside and talk.
Manoj: Ok. Punni smiles. Punni and Manoj leave. Rasika offers Manoj\’s mother some food. Manjusha is looking worried.
Sachu, Ovi and Teju are at their house. Teju is very happy that Sachu is at home.
Teju: Sachu, you are finally here! When did you come. Teju comes and closes Sachu\’s computer.
Sachu: Teju, let me finish my work. Please.
Ovi: Dada, you don\’t love us at all.
Sachu: Really, you think that? So then why did Arjun come in your life
Ovi: Are you pulling my leg?
Teju: No, he\’s not pulling your leg, he is right. Ever since Arjun has accepted to marry you, you have stopped paying attention to us.
Sachu: Exactly. Sachu and Teju high five.
Ovi: Dada, you don\’t need to be so happy, she\’s just buttering you.
Sachu: She\’s buttering me, but why?
Ovi: Because when you were not here, she beat up so many boys that you don\’t know and only you can legally save her.
Sachu stands up.
Sachu: Teju, what the heck is all this? How many times have I told you not to do this?
Teju: Dada,I swear, I will be so happy when Ovi gets married, but until now I have to tolerate this Barbie doll. Ovi throws a cushion at Teju.
Ovi: Teju, you make fun of me a lot. You will realize my importance when I get married.
Teju: Not at all. Once you get married, you will leave this house, so when you get married another girl will come in this house.
Teju: Dada\’s wife. When you leave this house, dada\’s wife will come inside this house. Compensation, you see.
Sachu: I have to work.
Ovi: Dada, don\’t change the topic, let\’s plan for your marriage.
Ovi: Change your answer for once, you always have the same answer.
Sachu: Look Ovi, my opinion on getting married will never change.
Ovi: But why?
Sachu: Because I don\’t believe in marriage.
Ovi: But dada, a marriage is the best thing.
Sachu: Look, I have told you guys earlier and I will tell you again, we don\’t have to discuss on this topic, is that clear? Or else I will go to the office.
Teju: Oh no, we promise you that from now on we will never discuss this topic. But please don\’t go to the office.
Vinod\’s house in the bedroom
Manoj and Punni are in the bedroom.
Manoj: So, what do you like?
Punni: I have no special interests.
Manoj: You must have some hobbies.
Punni: Yes, going around, and shopping.
Manoj: So where do you like to go?
Punni: I would like to go outside of India.
Manoj: Ok. Your mother was saying that you cook very good food, what foods do you like?
Manoj: Ok, what do you think about me? Do you like me?
Punni: Any girl would accept you. There is nothing wrong with you but.
Manoj: But? But what? What problem do you have? If you don\’t mind, then you can share it with me.
Punni: I. I\’m pregnant.
Vinod\’s house in the bedroom
Manoj: What? Manoj stands up.
Manoj: You are pregnant? And you are still showing off, you made me so foolish.
Punni: Look, please try to understand what I\’m saying.
Manoj: Why don\’t you marry the person?
Punni: I got cheated very bad, if I wanted to, I would have hidden all this from you but I did not do this. I can\’t lie to you.
Manoj: Ok, we will finish this conversation, and I will go out and tell them.
Punni: No please, please don\’t go outside. My parents don\’t know anything about this and if they get to know this, they will not be able to bear it. Whatever happened to me was my misfortune, I didn\’t want it to affect you or my family.
Manoj: What do you want, what do I do?
Punni: Just make an excuse to reject this marriage. I will take care of the rest, please. I know that you are a very good person, please.
Manjusha, Vinod, Rasika and Manoj\’s mother are in the room. Manoj and Punni come back.
Manoj\’s mother: Look, they have come back. Tell us, what was the decision that the two of you made? Dear, do you like the girl?
Manoj: No. Manjusha, Vinod, and Rasika look shocked. They all stand up.
Manoj\’s mother: Why?
Manoj: Because this girl and her family are bad. They cheat. They have hid a truth from us.
Manjusha: What kind of truth did we hide?
Vinod: What are you saying?
Manoj: I am saying the truth. You hid this from us on purpose. You hid that your daughter is two years older than me. Let\’s go aai. Manoj leaves. Manjusha and Rasika are trying to talk to Manoj\’s mother but Manoj\’s mother doesn\’t want to listen and she leaves.
Punni: aai, this is not my fault. He asked me questions and I gave him the right answers, he obviously asked me about my education, and then he asked me about my birthdate so I said the truth. I didn\’t know that he would leave by breaking a relation with me. Rasika goes to comfort Punni.
Rasika: Enough dear, don\’t cry. Don\’t worry, I will find a good boy for you. This boy was not even deserving of you, come with me. Rasika and Punni leave. Manjusha is sad and Vinod goes to comfort her.
Savita and Sachu are at their house.
Sachu: Aagi, I may have to go to India.
Savita: Why dear?
Sachu: Because I studied Canadian law, so I can\’t fight a case in India. And to fight for baba\’s case, we will have to find a lawyer from India and a lawyer whom we can trust.
Savita: But we can\’t appoint a lawyer from India.
Sachu: Aagi, try to understand. In these matters, we have to give personal attention and this is why I have to go to India.
Savita: But dear.
Sachu: Aagi, why are you worried? Nothing that you fear will happen. When I go to India. Teju comes to the room.
Teju: India, who is going to India? Savita smiles.
Savita: Who is going, no one is going. The thing is, we are both missing India so we were remembering our past memories from India.
Teju: But why miss India here, we can all go to India.
Sachu looks worried.
Teju: what happened, why did you get so serious? But I must day, that serious expression really suits your face, since you are a lawyer.
Sachu: Are you making fun of me?
Teju: No, I was just. Sachu is running after Teju. Teju goes to a corner and ducks. Both of them begin chasing after each other. Savita is looking worried.
Karanjkar House in the bedroom
(This is all Archana\’s dream) Archana and Manav are in the bedroom.
Manav: Baba had told you the truth, I am still waiting for you today. Because without Archana, Manav\’s life can\’t ever be complete and neither can I ever move on in life. I was crazy to be upset all the time and never called you but now I want to rectify my mistake. Please come back to me Archana. I love you a lot. Archana hugs Manav. Manav is saying, I love you Archana. Archana wakes up from her dream. Archana sits up and is looking around for Manav. She realizes that manav is not there. Archana remembers that Damodar was telling her that your Manav still loves you as much as he did before. Soon, you will get a phone call from Manav.

Archana: Manav, when are you coming to India?
Manav: I am coming day after tomorrow morning. Did baba call you?
Archana: Yes. Manav and Archana hang up. Archana thinks to herself, what baba said is coming true, Manav had called me. This means that everything that baba said is true. Archana thinks, does Manav still have me in his heart, does he want to meet me? Whatever it is, Manav calling me was enough for me, whatever his intention is, I have to meet him. I have waited for this moment to come Manav. Archana is very happy.
Precap: Arjun and Archana are at Arjun\’s office. Archana is saying to Arjun, I apologize to you on behalf of Purvi. Archana says I\’m really sorry.
