Pakhi walks into Vanraj’s room and happily informs him that mummy/Anu is awake now and Toshu/Samar are bringing her. Anu walks in with Toshu and Samar and seriously looking at Vanraj asks children to go out as she needs to talk to their papa. They walk away. Anu asks why? Vanraj nervously says what had happened…Anu. Anu says Anupama. Vanraj says what she saw and truth is different. Anu asks if he loves Kavya. He says he will explain her and asks her to sit. She stops him and says he gave her place to Kavya nd now Kavya’s place to her. She says she lost her consciousness yesterday, but is conscious now and will not lose consciousness again. He says what she saw and thinking is wrong. He says she was thinking wrong since 25 years, but not now; she just wants to know why? He says she is acting as if he did a sin. She asks if he didn’t? He says she was worried for her and is writhing in back pain, but she just wants answer for her why without let him speak.
She seriously looks at him again. He agrees that Kavya was having a problem with her husband, so they both came close to each other and started an affair; he backed off because of family and children, but she wanted to marry him and when he was pushing her away he fell down and since Kavya was holding his collar, she also fell on him. He continues that even Toshu knows about it and he is not lying. Anu asks if his loving words and what she saw in his eyes were true? She reminisces him singing for her and saying he cannot live without her; if his boss really called him on wedding day; he can fool children with his cooked up stories, but not mother. Vanraj shouts. Anu says a husband does mistakes and expects wife to forgive him repeatedly. He shouts why don’t she end this issue right here. She says from hereon he is not in her life. He shouts if she will divorce him. She says she doesn’t know, but knows what one who is not in heart doesn’t exist in even life; from here on, she will decide this relationship from here on; she will decide about this relationship, if she will cry or laugh, if she will be Anupama or Anupama shah, etc.
She had worn his mangalsutra 25 years ago which she removed it now; she will not cry in front of baa, bapuji, and children and will not say anything, he will have to reply them. He pushes her towards wall saying if he replies everything, what will she do; where will she go after being kicked out of this house; this is his house and family and she is nothing. She pushes him aside saying for a husband his house and family is a part of life, but for life, house and family is her life; there is no corner in the house in which she hasn’t cried or laughed, her soul stays in this house; he saw her bending till now, but from hereon she will take care of her self-respect. She walks away saying she already told decision will be hers. Vanraj sits in shock.
Anu walks away wiping her tears without reacting. Samar walks to her and asks if she is fine. She says yes and asks where is Toshu. He says bhai went to take notes from his friend, he will work if there is any. She says she will if there is any. Anu’s mother and brother Bhavesh walk in and ask if she is fine. Anu says yes. Mother says she was worried for her. Bhavesh says maa didn’t sleep whole night and fought with god for her life. Anu says even god should listen to maa’s plea and asks Bhavesh to distribute prasad. He leaves. Mother makes her sit and asks where is her sindhoor and mangalsutra. Anu reminisces removing mangalsutra and says she removed it while bathing. Mother says a suhagan shouldn’t remove them. Anu lies on her lap and asks how did she manage everything after papa’s death and spent whole life alone. Mother says when god gives pain, he gives strength to tolerate it; she used to get strength seeing her and Bhavesh, a woman can get weak, but not a mother; she bore pain in her fate, but Anu is lucky that she doesn’t have to bear all this as damadji is with her. Bhavesh returns and says they will leave as Nihar is alone. Mother walks away with him blessing Anu to be suhagan always. Anu thinks how to tell that her and Vanraj’s relationship has ended.
Vanraj receives Kavya’s call and tells her that he told her not to call him repeatedly. She says her stress level increased after seeing Anupama awake and requests him to come to her for sometime. He says he cannot come and because of her foolishness, she informed Devika and created this mess, why don’t she leave him alone for sometime. Kavya asks why he asks to leave him alone, does he really want to get rid off her. Vanraj disconnects call. Devika calls Anu and asks if she spoke to Vanraj and what did he say, he must have emotionally blackmailed her with cooked up story, even her husband used to do same, she shouldn’t fall for his lies. Anu nods no.
Devika asks if she will inform family about it. Anu says she doesn’t know.. when relationship has ended, whether to mourn alone or with family. Devika says if that man comes in front of her repeatedly, she will keep remembering his betrayal, so she should come to her house for a few days and let Vanraj handle his handle. Anu says she is not like Vanraj and cannot think of only herself. Devika says she is so proud of her, a man thinks of only himself but a woman thinks of everyone. She stops talking as she sees Pakhi entering and then disconnects call. Pakhi walks to Anu and asking if she is fine, should she bring her cold coffee. Anu says her doll grew up so big and asks if she can stay in her room for a few days, she will not disturb her much. Pakhi says she doesn’t have to take permission, why she doesn’t want to stay in her room, after 25 years in her room can she stay away from papa. Anu says she will learn.
In living room, Baa asks Vanraj if he and Anu fought. Pakhi walks to them and asks if he and mummy fought. Vanraj asks if Anupama told her. Pakhi says no, but mummy told she wants to stay in her rom for a few days. Baa in shock asks what?. Pakhi says when she asked mummy if she can stay without papa, she said she will learn. Bapuji says when decision is so big, then reason also must be; he asks Vanraj if there is any problem between them. Vanraj says no, doctor told Anupama needs change, so changed her room; he asks Pakhi to take care of mummy and make her feel comfortable. Pakhi says yes and leaves. Baa says people visit Shimla and Massouri for change, who changes room. Bapuji says he just wants Anupama to be happy.
Nandini sees Samar walking happily on road and says he is looking back as summer (happy) and not winter (angry). Samar says seeing mummy back to normal, he is back to normal self. Nandini warns him to keep Anu aunty safe from Vanraj and Kavya. He asks what? She says she means Vanraj uncle cannot see Kavya’s condition and even Kavya was stressed. Samar asks why Kavya didn’t come to meet mummy, is she okay. Nandini says she is fine and cannot see her close ones ill. Samar walks away asking her to inform Kavya that mummy is fine. Nandini thinks she cannot tell truth to Samar now, but truth will be out someday and don’t know if he will forgive her or not; why didn’t Anu aunty inform family about Kavya and Vanraj’s affair, what is she waiting for.
Toshu feels like having tea and thinks he shouldn’t trouble mummy. Anu brings tea for him and asks why didn’t he inform her about Vanraj and Kavya, he had not informed her about Kinjal thinking she doesn’t have right on his life, but she has right on her own life. Toshu says Kavya is blackmailing papa. Anu asks if Vanraj told him this, he is also a fool like her to trust Vanraj. She again asks who informed him about it. He says let it go. She gets angry. He says Nandini informed him reminiscing incident, he and Sanjay uncle together tried to stop papa, but.. Anu asks who? Toshu nervously says Sanjay uncle. Anu reminisces Sanjay’s repeated hints and asks who else knows about it. Toshu says nobody else and asks to forget about it and forgive papa. Anu says its her decision and nobody can interfere.
Anu walks to living room and clashes with Vanraj. Anu starts cleaning things. Bapuji seeing her asks why is she working instead of resting. Mamaji jokes if didi doesn’t work, bahu has to work. Baa says if she works again, she will fall ill. Anu says if she doesn’t work, she will fall ill. Baa asks where is her mangalsutra, if she kept it for resting and asks her to wear it right now. Anu walks to home temple. Vanraj walks behind, picks mangalsutra, and tries to put it in Anu’s neck. Mamaji says they are marrying for the third time. Baa asks Vanraj to fix it soon as says she doesn’t want third marriage’s expense. Anu picks old mangalsutra telling Vanraj that during first marriage, he didn’t have anyone else in life, but now he has. Baa asks why is she wearing old mangalsutra. Anu says its link is weak. Baa says men don’t know to buy jewelry. Mamaji jokes. Anu puts in her neck. Vanraj laughs and says “my, my decision”. She says she will not let her other relationships suffer because of one bad relationship. Only for that reason, she wore mangalsutra.
