Saturday Update on Gangaa 15th December
Next morning, Amma ji has made kheer for Sagar. She asks Madhvi to send breakfast to Sagar in his room only. Niru is leaving for court. Amma ji reminds him to be home on time in the evening. The landline rings. Amma ji picks it up but the caller does not say anything. Sagar comes downstairs. He can smell that something good is cooking. Amma ji covers the kheer. Right then a delivery guy comes to deliver something. Amma ji tells the guy to leave. I haven’t asked for anything. She signals Madhvi to take Sagar upstairs. Madhvi takes him upstairs. Amma ji takes the parcel. Sagar wonders where Papa is. Only he can help me in bringing Ganga back home. Amma ji pays the delivery guy. It is the blueberry cake.
Solanki dies. Niru looks at his dead body. Doc says he was perfectly fine till last night. Maybe he had a heart attack in the morning? Niru cross checks with doc. Is it a natural death or murder? Doc says police too has a doubt. Maybe someone attacked on the patient. The real reason will be known once we get the post-mortem report. Police team is questioning our staff too. He leaves to complete some formalities. Niru knows who is behind it. I am sorry Solanki that I couldn’t protect you. Now I have to help not just the victims but you too. But how do I do it without any witness or proof? I will have to find a way out.
Mehri proudly tells Maharaj ji that she has done most of the work. He replies that he has to decorate the house now. Sagar hears about the flowers. Amma ji diverts him that they were talking about the plants. She takes both of them inside.
The landline rings. Sagar picks it up. No one speaks from the opposite side. He realises that it is Ganga. Say something. I know it’s you. Madhvi asks him how is he so sure. He says that he doesn’t know but he is sure about this fact. Ganga ends the call.
Sudha asks Ganga to eat something as she will eat late in school. I don’t know you don’t like the food that we get here but how long wont you eat. 3-4 days? Ganga replies that she wont be staying here for that long. Babu and Bahu ji will take me back real soon.
Amma ji has made up her mind. I wont let Ganga come back in this house ever. Ganga and Sagar will have to become habitual of living separately.
In the school, Mrs. D’Souza explains the story of Krishna and Sudama to the girls. They both were from different backgrounds yet they always stood by each other. Do any of you have such a friend? Ganga smiles thinking of Sagar. Mrs. D’Souza notices her thus but Ganga answers in denial. Bulbul comments that she wont have any friend. Reena calls Ganga her friend. The class gets over. Reena asks Ganga if she was thinking of Sagar. Ganga nods. There is no point thinking about it. Sagar has forgotten me.
Sagar is trying his father’s number but it is unreachable. I had to talk to him about Ganga. Only he can help me in bringing Ganga back to this house.
Niru is still in the hospital with doc and police Inspector. Sagar finally is able to connect with him. Inspector goes to talk to Niru before Sagar can say anything to his father.
Sagar goes to the kitchen to get water. He notices the cake inside the fridge and gets happy. Amma ji and Madhvi are relieved to see him happy.
Reena and Ganga are on their way back. Reena keeps talking about what all happened in the day. Ganga thinks of wishing Sagar. I cannot even go to the house. Reena notices a cosmetics shop. She goes to buy bindi for her mother. Ganga notices socks there. She recalls the day when Sagar was talking about socks that easily get hidden in the wardrobe. Ganga takes out the money that Bahu ji used to give her every day. Bappa used to tell me that one should save money. They will come to use today. The socks cost Rs. 60. Ganga only has Rs. 55. Please give me some discount. He agrees. Ha wraps it in a coloured paper for her on her askance. Reena is curious. Did he call you? How will you give it to him? Ganga gets thinking.
Chaturvedi Sadan is fully decorated. Sagar comes downstairs. He quietly picks up the cake from the fridge and heads upstairs. Prabha looks wide-eyed at the decorations. She greets everyone. Yash is tempted by the food items. Prabha starts her drama so Madhvi offers to celebrate Yash’s birthday in a similar grand way. Amma ji taunts Prabha and Madhvi indirectly.
The door bell rings. Sagar’s friends come. Amma ji thinks how happy Sagar will be to see this surprise.
Sagar goes upstairs near the balcony. I want to be with you on my birthday. I will have to come in your style only. He makes a rope using the clothes and hangs it down the balcony. He takes the cake with him.
The kids rush to see the magician doing some tricks. Amma ji sends Mehri to bring the cake. She also shushes the kids. Make noise when Sagar enters. Pulkit ties a big balloon in the centre of the room while Maharaj ji goes to bring Sagar. Pulkit switches off the lights. Pulkit bursts the balloon but it is only Maharaj ji who has come back. Amma ji asks him about Sagar. He shares that Sagar is not in his room. I searched the entire house. He is nowhere. Mehri announces that someone took the cake. Amma ji knows where Sagar will be.
Sagar is running on the streets.
Pishi Ma asks Ganga if she is missing Sagar. She retorts that why should she miss him when he does not miss her. A lady informs her that Sagar is outside. She runs out to meet him. Pishi Ma jokes about what she was saying a second ago.
Sagar and Ganga see each other and smile.
Ganga turns her back to him. You dint stop me from leaving the house. Why are you here now? He asks her if she will get angry on him now. You are so stubborn. I have brought my birthday cake. Will you not ask me to cut it? Sagar cuts his birthday cake with Ganga and the other widows of the ashram. Pishi Ma and all the ladies wish him happy birthday. Ganga and Sagar keep looking at each other. Pishi Ma understands it. She takes all the ladies with her to make preps for the evening puja. Ganga feeds cake to Sagar. She runs to get his gift while he remarks that she wont be remembering his birthdya at all. How will she gift him then? She keeps the gift back in her bag. You think like that? You only sent me here. He thinks of his dilemma. Will you not come home? She replies that she misses everyone. I will come home when Babu is not angry with me anymore. I ruined his work. He does not trust me. I will come when he trusts me again. Sagar reasons that his papa would have forgotten everything. I left my birthday party for you. I don’t know why I came here! She too tells him to go.
Maharaj ji comes there. He is surprised to find him here. Sudha tells Sagar that he dint do the right thing. Maharaj ji tells about the problem in the case. Solanki is also dead now. He was the sole witness of the case. Maybe he was murdered. He looks tensed as he has no proof or witness. How will he fight this case? Ganga feels sad to hear that Babu is worried. Maharaj ji reprimands Sagar for running away without telling anyone. Sagar remarks that no one here is concerned. He leaves with Maharaj ji. Sudha shares the same with Pishi Ma. Ganga suddenly runs out.
Ganga stops Maharaj ji. Sagar asks her if she is fine with him now. She instead wants to talk to Maharaj ji. Will you do something for me? Maharaj ji nods.
Raghav ji and Niru discuss how to prove it that MLA was behind Solanki’s death. Ganga and Maharaj ji reach there. She vouches to give statement against the goons. I saw that person. He shot that is why the stampede happened. Niru does not want to put her life in risk. She reminds him of his and her Bappa’s words. Never be afraid to speak truth. Niru tells Raghav to list Ganga’s name as the witness of the case. A man overhears their convo. Ganga is glad to know that Niru is not angry with her anymore. I can come how now. Niru nods. Today is Sagar’s birthday. Come. Ganga thinks that she will be living with everyone in Chaturvedi House once again. The goon sits in the car and follows Niru’s car.
Sagar enters inside and looks at the preparations. Madhvi questions him on his whereabouts. Your friends left. Your Dadi is so sad as she made all these preps with love. Prabha too calls it wrong. Amma ji looks pointedly at Sagar. She asks Mehri to throw everything out as all the guests have left. Throw away the kheer too. Madhvi signals Sagar to talk to Amma ji. Sagar asks his Dadi not to do so. I love the kheer that you make. Will you keep me hungry on my birthday? Madhvi asks Mehri to bring kheer. I will feed my son. Sagar insists to eat only from his Dadi’s hands. Amma ji says you think of me now. You went to Ganga. You could have asked her to make it and feed you. Sagar calls Ganga arrogant. She cannot do anything. I wont talk to her now. She finally gives in. She asks Madhvi to bring puja thaal to do Sagar’s aarti. Sagar thanks her for all the hard work that she has put in for him. Sorry that I upset you. Amma ji does Saagr’s aarti and then makes him eat kheer with her hands. She hugs him. You (Ganga) think that you are too smart. Don’t ever think that I will give in to my grandson’s demands and you will be back here! You wont be able to step your foot inside this house now!
Niru brings Ganga back to Chaturvedi House. She stares at the house. The goon stops his car at a distance. Niru and Maharaj ji begin go in. The goon starts his car. Niru notices the approaching car when he turns to look at Ganga. He shouts her name. Everyone inside hear him and rush out. Niru saves Ganga in time. Everyone stands by Ganga’s side as she looks all shaken up. Niru realises that it cannot be a coincidence. The other day the car was approaching me in a similar manner. Sagar is concerned for Ganga. Niru connects the points. Solanki’s murder and now this attack on Ganga! These are the same people! Pulkit suggests going inside and talking. Niru stops them. Ganga will not stay with us. She may be in danger. It will be good if she stays away from us. She will be safe in the ashram. You will have to stay there till this case ends. He takes Ganga with him in the car. Sagar too wants to come but Madhvi stops him. Ganga looks at everyone’s faces. Amma ji looks relieved.
