Friday Update on Gangaa 14th December
Sagar waits for his van. He notices Ganga’s FIL talking to a nearby shopkeeper. He hides. What are they talking about? Ganga’s FIL leaves. Sagar asks the shopkeeper what that man was asking about. Shopkeeper tells him that he spoke about the little girl who stays in your house in white saree. I told him that she goes to ghaat with Amma ji daily morning. Sagar panics. What if I go to school and he comes back again? His school van comes. He cannot risk losing Ganga. He tells his van driver to drive off. I have some work. He wonders what he will tell his father.
Niru advises Pulkit not to go to school today because of his bruises. Your friends will ask you lots of questions. Amma ji agrees. Plus you don’t have to meet Saloni now. Pulkit says she isn’t at fault. He understands that his father does not want him to be friends with Saloni. Niru nods. She is a good person but his father is not a good man. Pulkit sadly leaves for his room. Sagar walks back inside the house. Niru tells Madhvi not to say anything to Pulkit come what may. Amma ji notices Sagar. Did you miss your van? Sagar holds his stomach and pretends as if he is in pain. Amma ji and Madhvi get concerned. Niru leaves for court. Call me in case the pain increases. Sagar apologises to them in his mind. I have to save Ganga or her FIL will take her away.
Mehri is massaging Amma ji’s feet. Door bell rings. A girl (Chandni), Pulkit’s classmate, has come to meet him. He dint come to school so I came to see if he is fine or not. Madhvi goes to call him but Amma ji stops her. She asks Chandni that she can give the message to her. Chandni denies so Amma ji makes her leave. Amma ji refuses to believe that it was genuinely some other girl and not Saloni. Chandni calls Pulkit. Saloni is locked in her room. Her phone has been taken away. Chandan helped me so I got to meet her. Saloni is missing you. She was crying badly. Her father is sending her to boarding tomorrow only. She has asked you to meet her at the bus stop tomorrow. Pulkit is shocked. Why dint you say something to me when you came to my house? Chandni shares that his Dadi behaved rudely with her. I did it for my friend.
Ganga is at the ghaat. She thinks of her first meeting with Niru; how he took her to his big house; how he cared for her and him shouting on her for losing that CD. You are very good Babu. You took me to your home. You fought with everyone for me. You dint even listen to Amma ji. You sent me to school. You always say that one should never lose but how did you give up then? I made a very big mistake. But I will do something to set it right.
Sagar is standing in the balcony. I will send Ganga’s FIL away if he comes home today. What if he comes at ghaat? Please don’t send him today God! Amma ji and Madhvi come there. Are you alright now? Sagar affirms. Pulkit asks his Dadi why he scolded his friend. She wasn’t Saloni but Chandni. Amma ji is irked that Pulkit has so many female friends. Sagar is confused. Why did Dadi mistook Chandni Didi for Saloni Didi? Madhvi replies that she was in the same school uniform so she scolded Chandni. Sagar gets an idea.
Sagar has asked his friend Shruti to help him in this idea. She asks for something in return (notes). Sagar agrees for the deal. Come on time. I will call you. She finds it risky. What if my parents find out about this? Sagar talks about the notes that she wants in return. Do what I have asked you to. He gives her something in a packet.
Amma ji asks him to come inside as it is his turn to meet the Vaid ji. Shruti and Sagar do thumbs up at each other.
Sagar is missing Ganga. He thinks of her and how she used to defend him, help him all the time. He feels bad for fighting with her too often. I wont let you go anywhere ever. You will stay here only. This is my promise!
Next morning, Pulkit wakes up because of Sagar’s alarm. Sagar waits for a minute to make sure that his brother has fallen asleep. He takes his phone and calls Shruti. Come to my house asap.
Amma ji calls out for Maharaj ji. Wake up as it is time. She opens the main door when she finds someone standing outside her room wearing white saree. Sagar comes there. This is Shruti. She will go to snan with you today. Amma ji asks her if Shruti is a widow. Sagar denies. She isn’t a widow. A fancy dress competition is going to happen in our school. She wants to know / understand how they live their life. He butters his Dadi so she agrees to take Shruti with her. Sagar too wants to come along. She allows him.
Niru gets to know that Solanki has gained conscious. He gets up to go but this worries Madhvi. You had decided to leave the case, right? He hopes that she supports him in this fight. I can understand your fear. I know how much you care and worry for the family. I too feel the same. I am a lawyer as well. I have the responsibility to help the needy too. So many people lost their loved ones in that stampede! So many kids lost their parents and became orphan. Should I overlook their pain? He holds the potli that Ganga had given him. She gave me everything as fees. I dint want to hurt her self-respect so I took it. She gave them to me with trust. How cna I break that trust? Keep them safely. They aren’t just jewellery but my trust. I have built that in people’s hearts by my work. Do you want me not to prove it to them that I deserve their faith? How will I fight alone? Will you not support me in this fight? She nods. He doesn’t want to break Ganga’s trust at any cost!
Amma ji, Sagar and Shruti are on their back home from the ghaat. He thinks that Ganga might be thinking wrong about him. I do not want you to go anywhere. I will not let it happen. Amma ji moves aside to talk to someone. Sagar and Shruti wonder why Ganga’s FIL hasn’t come till now. He enters there just then. He notices Shruti’s back and then Amma ji as well. Sagar thinks that it will be fine if he sees Shruti but if will be a problem if he gets a chance to talk to Dadi. He diverts Amma ji towards doing puja of cow. Sagar and Shruti rush to his side. Ganga’s FIL questions Sagar. Why did you lie to me? Sagar replies that he dint lie. She isn’t Ganga. Go back to your house now that you have seen it. It isn’t necessary that Ganga is in Banaras. Ganga’s FIL too feels the same. She might have gone to some other place. Forgive me for wasting your time. He leaves. Amma ji joins the kids. Who were you talking to? Sagar gives a roundabout reply. He is relieved to see Ganga’s FIL leaving. Please God, don’t send him back ever.
Ganga is on a boat ride. She thinks of the happier times with Sagar and when he had called her his friend proudly. You did very wrong to me. You dint even stop Amma ji from sending me back to ashram. I know you are taking revenge from me for not accepting you as my friend that day but I will not beg you to take me back to your home.
Chandni calls Pulkit. Saloni is leaving for her boarding school right now. Her father got a doubt somehow and he switched plans. Chandan called me. She is leaving now. Please go and meet her if possible. Pulkit wonders how to go out of his house this early in the morning. Papa too would be at home.
Niru is leaving for hospital. He asks Raghav ji to meet him there directly. Pulkit notices him leaving. He asks his mother about it. She shares that Solanki has gained conscious. He is relieved that he can go out of the house now that his father has left. Pulkit wants to go out to eat jalebi from a nearby shop but Madhvi thinks of asking Mehri to bring it. Madhvi is busy taking care of everyone’s needs. She calls out for Pulkit. He runs to his bathroom just when Madhvi enters. She asks him to come downstairs for breakfast after the bath. He stealthily thinks of escaping from the balcony. Amma ji, Sagar and Shruti are returning home just then. Sagar notices Pulkit stepping out of the balcony. Pulkit steps back inside. He signals Sagar to take their Dadi inside. Dadi keeps comparing Shruti and Ganga. That girl isn’t interested in learning anything from me. Sagar does so. He sends her inside and goes back again on the pretext of playing with his friends.
Pulkit manages to jump down from the balcony. Sagar asks his brother where he is heading to. Pulkit says I am going to meet Saloni. It is very important for me to go there. She is my girlfriend. I love her a lot. You like doing anything and everything for the one whom you like. Sagar is concerned for his brother but Pulkit isn’t worried about himself at the moment. Sagar thinks that Ganga is his best girlfriend. I too should do everything for her.
Sagar comes home. He asks his Dadi to bring Ganga back home. She is doing puja. He insists. I was getting angry on her for no reason. I understood that the photo of only the winner will be published in the paper. She had no mistake in it. I fought with her for no reason. Please bring her back. I wont be able to enjoy if she isn’t here. Amma ji says we will bring her back after your birthday. Shardh days are on. I cannot call her back now. She has left on your insistence but she will come back as per my wish. There will be no further discussion on this topic.
Mehri asks Amma ji if she will bring Ganga back home after shardh. Amma ji is in no mood to bring her back now. I will make sure Sagar gets over it in a few days. I will divert his mind but I will never let the problem called Ganga come back here!
Ganga sadly thinks of all the happier times that she had spent with Sagar and how he cared for her in the past. It was so fun to play with him. He too used to push me. I don’t know why he changed later. She thinks of Chandan’s words calling her Sagar’s friend and a maid. Sagar’s word haunt / hurt her still. I miss you a lot but I am sure that would not be the case with you.
Sagar tells his mother that he is missing Ganga. Dadi isn’t listening to me. Madhvi tries to quieten him but he refuses to do anything or even celebrate his birthday if Ganga isn’t back. Amma ji shakes her head. Madhvi too requests her to call Ganga back. Amma ji talks about the rules of Shardh. Sagar can keep shouting but she wont come back before Shardh. Sagar firmly states that he wont celebrate his birthday. He walks away. Maharaj ji is sure Sagar will stick to his words. Amma ji says she will take care of it. He thinks of her as his friend so he wants her to be back. I will invite all his old and new friends to a very big party. He will forget her and will not complain anymore. We will keep it a surprise. Ask Pulkit to invite all friends of Sagar.
A Goon goes to bring water for Saloni. Pulkit comes to meet her. She asks him to go away as the other goon is still there. He overhears that Solanki has gained conscious. He threatens Pulkit to run away if he wants to be alive. The other goon catches hold of Pulkit. He pulls his hand away from Saloni. Pulkit runs away. Saloni breaks down.
MLA is shocked to know about Solanki. Goon tells him that NIru has gone to hospital to meet Solanki. MLA orders him to be careful. Saloni should be fine. Nothing should go wrong. He thinks of taking care of Solanki before he can harm him.
Niru proposes Solanki to join hands with him. No one will be able to stop the culprits from getting punished. I have sent Raghav ji to court to get date tomorrow only. You will get Police protection too. Solanki agrees to give witness against MLA.
Maharaj ji and Amma ji write down the list. Pulkit has invited Sagar’s friends too. Maharaj ji asks him about his whereabouts. Pulkit diverts the question. Madhvi has called a magician too. Niru comes home. He gets to know about his family planning a surprise party for Sagar. Niru talks about the case. Celebration should happen. He asks for Sagar. Madhvi shares that he is sad as Ganga cannot come here. Niru offers to take Sagar to ashram tomorrow to make him meet Ganga. Amma ji doesn’t let him go up. He must be sleeping. Madhvi finds something fishy.
In his room, Sagar thinks of Amma ji’s reaction. He feels bad for sending Ganga to ashram. He finds Pulkit pacing in the room. He asks him but Pulkit says I am not sleepy. He lies down again. Pulkit cannot stop thinking of his last meeting with Saloni.
Niru sits down in the middle of the night to work on the case. Madhvi too wakes up. He shares that tomorrow is a big day. I don’t want any loopholes in this case. She lies down to sleep.
Sagar finds his brother lost and sad. He is so worried. He did so much for his best friend. Ganga is my best friend. What did I do for her? He notices Pulkit wiping his tears. Ganga will be upset with me. I wonder if she would recall my birthday.
Ganga thinks that it is Sagar’s birthday tomorrow. The house will be all decorated and celebrations will be on. It will be celebrated just like Bappa used to celebrate my birthday. I wish I was there too. Everyone used to love me so much earlier but now no one loves me. This is why I have been sent here in the ashram.
