Friday Update on Gangaa December 7th
At Lawrence School, the rehearsals are on in full swing. Chandan keeps looking at Sagar. He recalls seeing Sagar eating some medicines. He excuses himself for a minute. He opens Sagar’s bag and steals the medicines. Sir gave him my position. He can never be the main dance! Chandan keeps them in his pocket and joins his team again. Sagar is getting tired. He asks for a short break. Chandan suggests him to take a break a little later as he is the main lead. Dance Teacher too requests Sagar so he agrees but is unable to do it. Chandan keeps praising him. Sagar has lost all his stamina. I cannot even stand now. I will take my medicine. He excuses himself for a minute but cannot find the medicine in his bag. Yash goes to him. He too looks in the bag but the medicine isn’t there. Sagar faints. Chandan smirks as everyone rushes to his side. Dance Teacher makes Yash call someone as Sagar is to be immediately taken to hospital.
The girls are playing a game (kabaddi). Bulbul calls Reena and another girl to take part in the game. We cannot do dance practise as there is no dance teacher. Ganga is still positive that it will happen. Earlier we dint have a place to rehearse but now we have it. We will find a teacher too.
Raghav ji updates NIru about Solanki’s health. He has no clue about the CD till date. MLA’s goon tells his senior about the same.
Madhvi and Amma ji rush to the hospital. Doc assures them that he is alright. Maybe he dint take medicine on time so it happened. Yash adds that Sagar couldn’t find his medicine in his bag. Amma ji scolds Madhvi for being careless. Madhvi had kept it herself. Doc says Sagar fainted maybe because of the weakness. He needs to rest for a while. You can take him now. They meet Sagar next. They are very much concerned for him.
Ganga and the girls request Bulbul to teach them the dance steps. Bulbul finally agrees and begins to guide them. She gets irked when they cannot get the posture or steps right. I am not interested in losing! She walks out of the classroom. Ganga wonders what to do now.
Principal comes looking for Gunwanti. Ganga says her mother is ill so she has gone to her house. Principal Ma’am wants some papers from Gunwanti. She had received a call from the Principal of Lawrence School. She has to submit them today only. Peon is on off today. Ganga offers to go and come back asap. Principal Ma’am is hesitant but Ganga insists.
Sagar drinks juice. Amma ji says you don’t have to dance. Nothing happened to you but what if something had gone wrong! Sagar wants to dance. Madhvi sides with Amma ji. You don’t have to put your life in danger. Sagar asks her what has happened to him. Madhvi says you are weak. Pulkit adds that he can participate next year. Sagar insists upon participating this year only. I have practised so much for it. I wont drink juice too if you don’t let me participate. Sagar makes Amma ji agree for it somehow. Outside, Madhvi asks Amma ji why she agreed. Amma ji replies that Sagar wont understand anything if we say no to him at the moment. Let him get better. I will talk to him.
Ganga collects the papers from Gunwanti’s house. Gunwanti’s mother gives water to Ganga. Gunwanti will come in a while. She has gone to bring medicine. Gunwanti’s mother coughs. Ganga suggests bringing water for her but she asks for her pump. Ganga notices a few photos on the wall. Gunwanti’s mother feels better after using the pump. Ganga asks her about the photo. Gunwanti’s mother shares that gunwanti was a very good dancer back in her younger days. She wanted to make a name for herself in dance but she had to give up all her dreams because girls weren’t allowed to do anything like that in our time. She got married later and it never happened again. I wonder when I will see the smile on my daughter’s face again. Ganga thinks of something. She leaves for school.
The school gets over by the time Ganga is back. She stops her friends from going home. Principal Ma’am thanks Ganga for her timely help. She asks the girls what they are still doing here. Ganga shares that she has stopped them. I have found a dance teacher for us. Gunwanti comes late as her mother was ill. The girls stay back because of Ganga. She has found their dance teacher. Gunwanti asks Ganga who is it. Ganga says it is you! You will teach us dance. You have learnt it from a very big Guru. You have won many prizes too. I know how much you love dance. We had a dance teacher in our school only. Who else should we turn to then? Gunwanti says I haven’t practised since lot many years. I wont be able to do it now. maybe my faily too will object. Principal Ma’am reasons that she only has to teach kids dance. She doesn’t have to perform on stage. I can talk to them if you wan to. Gunwanti denies. It’s been so many years. What will I teach them? Principal Ma’am says talent never goes away. try once. All the girls request her. Principal adds that our school is participating after so long because of Ganga Do you want the dream of these girls to fail because of lack of a dance teacher? Gunwanti agrees. Ganga thanks her. I told you we will find a dance teacher! Ganga doesn’t look happy.
Ganga comes to talk to Sagar. He is again listening to music. She removes them. what happened to you? Everyone is so worried about you. He denies. I am perfectly fine. But you must be happy that I wont be able to participate as I am not well now? She replies that she only competes with someone who is equal. You are on bed. You are taking so many medicines to stay strong. One has to do it on their own. He is sure of his victory. She shares that she found a dance teacher. He makes fun of her as she knows no dance forms. She relates that one who tries wins. Babu says so. He insists that the Inter School Competition is very tough. She refuses to accept failure without trying. He starts coughing so she gets him water. You have no strength to talk only! Get well first. Then we will see who wins. They challenge each other.
MLA’s senior (the same lady chief guest from Lawrence School that day) tells MLA to act fast. I cannot keep this at bay for long. The issue is very sensitive. If you fail in this responsibility then you know the consequences too! She ends the call. MLA Shrivastava gets angry. He scolds his goons for being incompetent. You couldn’t find that girl or CD. Goon says we have deployed our people at the hospital. We will question him as soon as he gains conscious. MLA orders him to check all the CCTV of the area where he had seen the girl.
Ganga switches off Sagar’s laptop. You need to get well first. How will you take part in the competition if you aren’t well? Take your medicines and rest. You will get your laptop only when you get completely fine. They both fight for the laptop. Sagar calls his mother. Ganga stays put. Babu too would have done the same. Madhvi too seconds Ganga. Get well first and then you can use it. You even dance while sitting on the bed. Now take your medicine. Sagar refuses to take medicine as he does not like it. Ganga points out that it isn’t jalebi that he has to think of taste. You wont be able to take part in the competition if you don’t take it. No problem. Sagar takes medicines. Madhvi smiles in relief. Ganga says I will keep the laptop with me till you get better. Take it from me when you are fine. Sagar stomps his feet angrily. Madhvi tells him that Ganga is saying for his good only.
Gunwanti explains to the kids that they have to be disciplined to do anything in life including dance. You must not take it casually. People spend their whole lives learning such skills / art. She plays a song. Girls don’t look so interested as it is classical. Ganga thinks that Sagar and his friends will be dancing on a latest song. Will we be able to win by dancing on this song?
