13th March Wednesday Update on Gangaa
Sabharwal reads a so called statement before Sagar. Sagar is made to sign on it. Inspector says you wrote it, not Sagar. Sabharwal nods. but whatever is written in it is Sagar’s version only. Sagar is about to sign it when Palash enters. He tells Sagar to stop. This is your suicide note made by Sabharwal. You yourself are a lawyer. How did you fall in their words? He reprimands them for forcing Sagar to sign any paper. Sagar says no one forced me. Palash insists he is his lawyer. You will sign the papers I will ask you to. Sagar feels they are right but Palash tells him to leave it on court. He tears the statement readied by Sabharwal. He tells Inspector that Sagar got parole for some time. He presents the papers to him. He tells Sagar he will have to go home for a while. Your Dadi is unwell. Sagar panics. Sagar leaves with Pulkit and two constables. Palash sits down with the Inspector to complete the formalities.
Amma ji’s BP is very low. Doc speaks of giving her IV. Madhvi requests Amma ji to eat something or she will become all the more weak. Amma ji keeps taking Sagar’s name. Doc leaves.
Madhvi asks Ganga why she is still here. I told you to bring Sagar anyhow. Amma ji’s condition is worsening. Hope she does not die taking his name only. Ganga denies. I am thinking about that only. Pulkit says he is here. Madhvi is in tears to see Sagar finally home. She hugs him. Ganga is also surprised and teary eyed. Madhvi asks about his wounds. Where were you? Your Dadi isn’t eating anything. I cannot even cry. Don’t leave us now. We cannot live without you. He calms her down. I wont go anywhere now. Everything will be fine. Don’t cry before Dadi. He goes with her.
Pulkit tells Ganga that he got parole for only a very short time. Ganga is surprised to know Palash did it. Pulkit tells her what he witnessed in the police station. Thank God Sagar is safe now or he could have fallen in a bigger problem. He goes. Ganga regrets doubting Palash. How could I make such a big mistake!
Amma ji is so happy to see Sagar home. How did you get these wounds? He helps her sit up. I am here only. It is nothing. She hugs him and kisses his cheeks. There must be so many problems that you would have faced in jail. I wont let you go anywhere now. He assures her. Promise me you wont say no to medicines. I cannot see my Dadi in this condition. She smiles. Why do I need medicines now! He still makes her promise him. Everyone gets emotional. Sagar makes her eat medicine. Amma ji tells MAdhvi to make Sagar’s favourite food daily. Pulkit is about to tell her truth but Sagar stops him. Sagar feeds food to his Dadi and vice versa. Ganga goes out of the room as she is unable to control herself.
Ganga is sitting outside Palash’s house. He comes home finally. She profusely apologizes to him. I am worried for Sagar. I said all that in tension. He keeps ignoring her and goes inside. She follows him. I understand my mistake. I will be indebted to you for forever for what you have done for Sagar. Forgive me once. He calls it his duty. I cannot fight this case anymore now. I am sorry. He hands over a file to her. She again requests him to forgive her once. He says trust is the basis of any relation, especially in our profession. I got to know how much you trust me. I would suggest you to hire some other lawyer. You wont get anything by working with me. Niru is a great judge. He can hire more expert lawyers than me. Why me then? I am not interested. She requeets him not to leave this case. I trust you completely. I regret saying what I said in anger. Please don’t leave this case. Only you can free Sagar. He talks of her self-esteem. You considered your self-esteem above everything always then why are you folding your hands before me today? Why are you doing this then? She replies that it isn’t more important than Sagar. I can do anything to save Sagar. He says time will tell about it. She agrees. Ganga can go to any extent, can do anything for her Sagar. You can even take my test if you want.
Palash keeps two conditions before her. You will never doubt or question me now. You will have to believe it that I am doing it for your good only. Do you accept this? She is all quiet so he asks her again. Tell me if you have a little doubt even. I wont touch this case again. She promises him. He asks her to share anything related to the case with him. You wont hide anything. It may or may not be in Sagar’s favour. You wont hide it from me. She nods. He tells her to go home and question Sagar. Try to remind him what all happened that day. You don’t have too much time. He will have to go back at 9. Ask him every possible question you can think of. Find any clue which might help you get him out of the jail. The next hearing is far. Go now. She leaves.
Palash thinks Ganga is only a puppet now. I have your strings. You will do as I say now. Sagar is your weakness. I can make you do anything through his name. I will get all the proofs through you only which can prove Sagar innocent. I will keep destroying them all one by one so he can never be free. I will close all the doors to his freedom one by one. Your fight to free Sagar is going to cost you badly. It’s not going to be easy. Remember that!
Sagar is with Amma ji. She has fallen asleep. He slowly, carefully tries taking his hand back but she holds it tightly. Are you leaving me? He denies. I am here only. She talks of his childhood. I used to sing lullaby for you when you were a kid. You used to fall asleep in no time. He thinks of the memory. They both say it together. Sagar is in tears. He recalls all the times when his Dadi has been concerned for him. Ganga and Pulkit come there. Amma ji has fallen asleep. Pulkit asks Sagar to come. Mom is calling you for dinner. Pulkit sits down in his place holding Amma ji’s hand. Sagar leaves. Ganga looks at the house temple.
Madhvi gives instructions to Maharaj ji to bring Sagar’s favourite food. Sagar joins them. He keeps looking at his mother as she excitedly begins to serve him food. Will you pour all your love in food only? She says why you say so. You wouldn’t have eaten anything since so many days. Eat now. He makes her sit. I want to eat from your hands today. She happily agrees. Ganga comes to take Sagar just then. Madhvi tells her to let Sagar have food first. She denies. They argue. Madhvi says he wont go anywhere. He will eat food first. Ganga says he wont die if he wont eat food one day. Everything will be over if we lose case. Sagar asks Ganga where she is taking him. Ganga tells Sudha not to let Madhvi come upstairs. I have to talk to him about something important. She takes Sagar to his room. Madhvi is angry. I will just go and see her. Sudha asks her to stop. It must be something important.
Sagar comes to his room. He is all shocked as he thinks of that unfateful day. He refuses to go inside. I cannot face it again. She says it is important. Be a little brave. You will find light if you will step out of this darkness. I am with you. Nothing will happen to you. You have to do this to remove this stain from your name, to gain freedom. He keeps backtracking so she gives him Amma ji’s swear. Do it for her if not for anyone else. Please come inside. I am with you. She holds his hand and takes him inside. She keeps trying to encourage him. You are going to actually commit suicide by accepting the crime that you haven’t done. Think about your family. We have lost Janvi already. Don’t you want her killer to be punished? Images of that day keep flashing before his eyes. he is really panicked. She tells him to try to remember it. You want to get Janvi’s killer punished right?
Pulkit and Sudha try to make Madhvi understand but in vain. No one understands my pain. Door bell rings.
Ganga tells Sagar to try. It must be Inspector. He will take you back. Before that, please tell me everything in detail. I want to know every little thing.
Inspector walks in. We have come to take Sagar.
Sagar relates everything to Ganga. Janvi called me, asking me to come home. the door was locked from inside. I thought she is inside only. I knocked but there was no reply. She asks him what happened next.
Madhvi is shocked to know that Sagar has come out on parole only.
Ganga asks Sagar to speak up. We don’t have time. He says I knocked again. I saw that the door was not locked from inside. I walked in and saw Janvi hanging by the fan. She holds him. Was there anyone else? Did you see anyone? She looks at the clock. It is almost 9.
Inspector asks for Sagar. Madhvi asks him if Sagar cannot stay with them for a day. His Dadi is unwell. He will come tomorrow. Please. Inspector is helpless. Call Sagar. Pulkit says he will come. He knows he has to go with you. Inspector says did he flee. Pulkit replies that Sagar is in his room only. I will call him. Inspector goes with him.
Ganga asks Sagar what time it was. Did you see? He shakes his head. she asks him if any of the window was open. There must be something. Please think. He says maybe. She asks him if he met someone when he came home that day. Someone might be hiding here. Did you sense someone’s presence? Did you see anyone before or after meeting Janvi? He shouts back that he dint see anyone. Inspector asks Sagar to come. It is time. Ganga breaks down seeing Inspector coming to take Sagar. Pulkit holds her. Sagar thinks of Ganga’s questions. He recalls meeting Mehri that day when he had come home. He takes Mehri’s name. I met her when I was coming towards the room. I asked her about Janvi but she said that she does not know. She left then. Inspector takes Sagar with him.
Madhvi packs dinner for Sagar. Ganga advises Sagar not to sign any papers in lockup. Madhvi gives lunch box to Sagar. Your papa will free you. You are not alone. We are all with you. Inspector returns it to Madhvi. You need to take permission for it. Madhvi tries to make him understand. It is only food. Pulkit says it isn’t allowed. Please understand. Madhvi is in tears. It is no crime to give food to my kid. Put me in jail too if it is a crime but I wont hear anything. Sagar assures her he is fine. Don’t cry please. I wont be able to go otherwise. He seeks Inspector’s permission to see his Dadi once. Inspector allows him.
Sagar holds Amma ji’s hand while she is still sleeping. He kisses her hand.
Madhvi tells Sagar not to worry. We are with you. your papa will be home soon. She hugs him. He says I am fine Ma. Nothing has happened to me. Sagar tells Sudha Bua to handle Dadi when she wakes up. Don’t tell her anything about me till she takes medicines.READ NEXT/THUR MARCH ON GANGAA
