Amma ji gets tired by beating them. Sagar asks her if she got tired. I told you it is useless to try to separate us. Don’t try. You say you love me the most but you couldn’t understand me. you don’t know what Ganga is for me. Amma ji calls Ganga his toy. I brought her in this house in childhood for your entertainment. You used to play with her. I cannot let a road side girl become the pride of this house, this temple. It cannot happen. He gets angry. You can call me anything but Ganga will get her rights in this house, in this very temple!
Madhvi asks Sagar to say it is a lie. You acted in a rush. This isn’t truth, say it. Sagar says I did it all in my senses. It will be good if you accept it. You have to live your life with this truth only. Amma ji tries to pull Ganga with her but Sagar and Ganga stand holding hands. They refuse to leave each other’s side. Madhvi comes there holding a knife in her hand. Let go of Ganga’s hand or I will kill myself. They are stunned. Ganga leaves Sagar’s hand. Amma ji takes her with her. Sagar tries to go after them but Madhvi warns him against it.
Amma ji brings Ganga to her room. Your eyes, your rebellion, your madness! You know what this madness will cost? She replies that Radha ji would have never loved Kanha ji if she had thought of the consequence. Amma ji slaps her. Don’t take God’s name to hide your sin. Aren’t you ashamed? How do you get so much strength? Ganga says I get it from the self-respect taught by Bappa, Babu’s teachings and today from Sagar’s vermilion. Amma ji says neither the vermilion nor this self-respect will stay! I will just show you. She pins Ganga to the wall and begins to wipe the vermilion off her head. It falls in Kanha ji’s feet. Ganga notices the same. Amma ji asks her where is it now.Dont make me mad. Ganga keeps looking at the idol. See for yourself, where is it! It is in Kanha ji’s feet. Amma ji looks at it shocked. Ganga walks up to her. A widow’s vermilion fell in your Kanha ji’s feet. It became all the more pious. How will you deny it? Amma ji takes her out to explain what a widow means. Outside, Sagar tells Ganga not to listen to anyone.
Madhvi calls out for Sagar. She shows him something. They are his childhood memories (toys or his stuff). I kept them safely. What should I do with them now? Those 9 months that I spent with a happy wish? What should I do with it? the trouble I had to bear to raise you? What to do with our relation? You refused your mother’s love for a stranger girl? He denies. I dint do it. You refused the most important decision of my life. You know how much I love. She asks him to swear on her head that he will leave Ganga for forever. He asks her if she wants a value for her motherly love. I can die if you want me to but don’t snatch Ganga from me. She is my soul. People live even after dying. There is nothing beyond soul. Madhvi says you have started talking big. She pours kerosene over all the collectibles and sets them on fire. Everyone tries to talk her out of it but in vain. Pulkit pulls his mother aside. What happened to you? Madhvi tells him to ask Sagar. He did such a sin that cannot be washed ever. He filled vermilion in Ganga’s forehead. He wants to marry a widow! She breaks down.
Pulkit comforts his mother. She is crying. He ruined everything. Sagar admits doing it. it might be wrong in other’s eyes but it is good in my view. I wont change my decision. They hear a song about love and rebellion. It is Prabha’s ringtone. Sorry. I had no idea it will ring in this situation. Madhvi glares at her.
Yash tells Janvi what Sagar did. Janvi is shocked. This cannot be! Sagar cannot do it. Ganga is behind it. She snatched my Sagar from me. She breaks things in her room and cries. The call is still on. Yash smiles hearing her cry. Ganga’s words echo in Janvi’s head. She imagines Ganga before her. I told you Sagar is mine and will come to me only. You lost! Janvi refuses. You cannot win from me! I know how to make Sagar mine and defeat you.
Niru comes to Janvi’s home. Janvi’s father introduces him to big guys of Mumbai. The intro’s are exchanged. Janvi signals her father. niru notices them. Janvi’s father wants to announce Janvi and Sagar’s marriage in his friend circle. I will find a date of next month and inform you. Niru agrees. The people compliment Sagar. He should become the member of bar council. Niru thanks them. I am sure Sagar would want to make his own way. Janvi’s father says there is nothing in Banaras. We all want his good. They feed sweets to one another. Janvi thinks if Yash was here then he would have known how easy it is to trap a father who is all concerned about his son’s future.
Amma ji brings Ganga to the ghaat. See all those dead bodies. Their bodies are finishing but we widows have to end everything inside us while we are still living. We have to stop having any infatuation in life with anything. Widows have no face or existence. You have everything till you have a husband. You also lost a husband in childhood? Ganga says no. my son is alive! Amma ji is sure no one will accept this marriage. Ganga says wow, you accept the wedding of childhood to the boy I did not even know. I got cursed to be a widow. The marriage, which I accept from heart, will not allow me to be a married woman? What are you trying to scare me with? This is all hypocrisy. You remember when and why I filled vermilion in my forehead? I did it to save your grandson. You used to punish me for every little thing in childhood. When you knew what I did, why did you choose to ignore it? You did so as you are selfish! You were quiet as it was about Sagar. You somewhere agree that that act saved Sagar’s life. This is called double standards. I am not like you. I do what I say. What I have done, I will live it till life. You are a widow. You lived a relation and saw it ending. How can I accept it when I did not live it? I can accept it if something happens to your grandson! Amma ji warns her not to say anything against her grandson. Ganga knows she only cares about her loved ones. Why do you say a widow has to stop thinking about anything else when your own wishes are still very much there? Till when will you overlook the truth? Your wishes are hidden in your heart. Closing your eyes to it does not change the truth. You have lived your life. You might not want someone to touch you sweetly in this age but I do. I want someone to touch my soul, talk to me sweetly! I have always seen Sagar that ways. Amma ji tells her to stop but Ganga continues speaking. All my wishes are alive and will remain so. Neither will I kill them nor will I hide them somewhere. If I was in the age when women were made Sati, no one would have still stopped me from living. Why should I do something like that today then? Ganga will live and get her rights!
Amma ji says nothing changes by what you say. You are 19 years old but there is nothing left in your life already. You were, are and will always be a widow! Ganga refuses to accept it. She loudly shouts that Ganga was, is and will always be alive! Amma ji looks at her stunned.
