Krishna continues to berserkedly ask ganga, about the truth behind what yash said. she continues to dodge the question, while kashish is asked by ganga to handle krishna. sagar comes and starts slamming the door, asking her to open up, calling to ganga. krishna tries to rush to him, but ganga asks her to go change, and locks kashish in the inside room, with krishna, while herself waits outside, wondering what shall she do, as sagar continues to slam on the main door, begging for the door to be opened. she is tensed when the knock stops suddenly. wiping her tears, she opens the door slightly, and finds him sitting resignedly, on the stairs, with his back towards the house. he turns back and finds her standing there. they both look at each other tensedly, and yet awkwardly romantically. sagar arrives with folded hands at ganga’s doosteps, apologising profusely, saying that he knows he doesnt deserve forgiveness and begging for apology and along with it, whatever punishment that she gives him. he says that she was right and he wrong, and that one mistake, distanced themselves so much, and that he never thought in these seven years, what ould have they both gone through, and begs her to come back. he bends down to touch her feet, totally lost and disheartened, willing to do anything to rectify his mistake. distraught, ganga says that he should be punished, as he made a grave mistake, by not trusting her, their love and even her character and he shall get it too, and starts hitting him, that this is his punishment, and asks why he did so while getting emotionally weak as all of her anger melts down, and desperation and emotions kick in and asks why he did this, and then hugs him tightly, as she clutches at him. he hugs her back, too, tears streaming down their cheeks inconsolably. he wipes her tears and asks about krishna. suddenly, she realises that she had been dreaming this sequence all along. sagar infact stands up, and comes to her, as ganga remembers every insult and sniding remark that he placed at her. enraged, she gets inside and slams back the door. sagar stands dejectedly outside. she turns back yet again to eye him, while her good self asks her whats she thinking, as she should do, since her sagar is calling her, the sagar who is the true love of her life, whose thoughts never left her, today that sagar stands in front of her, with open arms. the good self asks her to remember all the moments of their love, and not let some weak moments, hamper it away. ganga starts reminisceing his gestures of affection in all these years. she starts smiling through her tears. she is about to get ahead, when her practical self, jolts her and asks her what is she thinking, and if she hasnt had enough betrayal, deceit and pain, and asks if he wants to go through the disbelieving insult and humiliation yet again, and says that only she can preserve her self respect. the good one asks her not to make this an ego issue, and asks her to move ahead, and absolve herself from all pain and torture, but she gets to know that he only cares about krishna and not her or else he would have clutched her forcibly, in his arms, and tells that sagar is merely distracting her, and that years, he didnt believe her, but yash’s statement, he instantly believed only for krishna. she is in a mental dilemma. sagar meanwhile wonders whats he thinking, as he should go and hug her, and get rid of her pain, and cry and let her cry too, so that they can start afresh. he gets ahead but is in a dilemma whether he has the right to do that to ganga, and what if she gets angry and goes inside. they both are in their own dilemma. as they confront each other, sagar asks ganga if she can forgive him. she gets defiant, and says that its too late and she cant. he still comes inside and begs her not to say so, with folded hands, as due to the drug, he didnt remember anything. he says that he is mortified with embarassment and begs her to come back. she says that the reason isnt the durg, but rhe fact that he had so little belief in her later on. she asks him to go, as she cant forgive him for this.
