Thursday Update on Gangaa December 6th

Everyone looks sad but Bulbul surprises everyone by agreeing to take part in the competition. Everyone gets happy. I know I too lot of time but we still have time in submitting the form. Everyone should participate. It will be a good thing for us and our school. I will talk to everyone and get you the names in an hour. Principal Ma’am nods. She talks about what all Ganga has done for it. I would want Ganga to be the leader of the group. They all clap for Ganga. Bulbul isn’t happy. This widow will be our leader? She will get equal scolding in the end. She doesn’t know what all is going to happen with her.

Bulbul and Gunwanti note down the names of the girls who want to be a part of the group. 12 girls have agreed so far. Reena and Ganga are glad that the girls agreed. Gunwanti updates Principal Ma’am. She tells Gunwanti to send Bulbul and Ganga in the room with the form. Ganga thanks Bulbul for her help. One girl questions Bulbul over her act. Why are you helping Ganga? Bulbul says time will tell.

Maharaj ji has got all the stuff that has to go to widow Ashram today. She is a little lost. I had seen that guy near Sagar’s school. If he is there today and sees me then it will be a trouble. Madhvi comes there. She asks Amma ji something but Amma ji is all quiet, lost in her thoughts. She declines to go to Ashram. Maharaj ji suggests taking rest for a few hours. You do this on your own every month. Amma ji tells him to go. She walks to her room. Madhvi asks her something but Amma ji doesn’t even hear her. Madhvi is concerned about her.

Gunwanti ji submits the form in Sagar’s school. The Principal appreciates her on her efforts. Ganga says thank you to him. He tells Gunwanti to take all details of the competition from their teacher. They all go out. They are in front of the room where the kids are doing dance practise. Ganga thinks that Sagar too will be here. She goes closer and peeks in. She is very happy to see Sagar. Bulbul has her eyes set on Ganga. Gunwanti’s discussion ends. She too joins the girls. This is a school. They have so many facilities – dance teacher, music system! The dance practise session ends. Ganga calls out for Sagar so he goes out. You are here again? Ganga tells Sagar and Yash that she had come to submit the form for the competition. The dance teacher asks Sagar about the girls. Sagar introduces them. She tells him the same thing. He says your school will compete with us. That isn’t possible! Ganga remarks that it is possible. My school might be small but the girls of my school are very sharp and bright. They know everything right from studies to dance and everything. Gunwanti affirms. Our talent will be seen in the competition. I saw the kids of your school practising just now. They cannot match their steps or do it perfectly. Chandan comes out to ask his dance teacher something when he notices Bulbul. What is my driver’s daughter doing here? Bulbul tells everyone to leave. Gunwanti takes the girls from there. Ganga and Sagar say bye to each other.


The goon tells MLA that he overheard Solanki talking to the police. He was telling them about a little girl wearing white saree while talking about the CD. MLA tells him to search every nook and corner to find that girl. She might be living in that area only. The goon nods and leaves. MLA is tensed as if anyone finds that CD then he will be finished. Who is that girl and where is she! Does she have that CD? It is becoming a puzzle. I will have to sort it out before it all breaks.

Ganga and Sagar bicker over the dance teacher who spoke wrongly. My Ma’am got angry for the very same reason. He justifies it saying that their school dint participate since last many years. She is positive that their school will win. He laughs that they still haven’t started the practise yet. We have been practising since so long and have finalised most of the things. How will you win? She is sure they only will win. You be prepared this time. The competition is going to be tough. He allows her to hear song on his laptop or she wont be able to prepare for it. Ganga is overjoyed.

Ganga is overjoyed that Sagar will let her use the laptop. Do you pity me? He denies. I know you don’t take favours. Madhvi keeps his medicines in his bag. Ganga gets curious. Why he takes medicine to school? She says he has to concentrate on studies, sports, extracurricular activities so he needs it. Is he giving you his laptop? Ganga nods.

Ganga is using Sagar’s laptop in Amma ji’s room. She wants to finalise a song. She puts on headphones and is shaking her hand when Amma ji comes there. She tries to ask Ganga what she is doing but Ganga’s eyes are closed. Amma ji finally has to remove her headphones. Ganga tells her that she is practising for the competition. Amma ji says you will ruin my sleep then. Ganga denies. I will go outside. She allows her to practise inside only. Switch off the light of the room. Let the light of the corridor remain on. Don’t stay awake for too long. You have to go to market in the morning. Ganga nods as she remembers it well. She does what she is told and starts listening to music once again.

Next morning, Maharaj ji and Ganga are in the market. The goons come there looking for the little girl in the white saree. They don’t notice her there as a few ladies stand between them and Ganga. Ganga has got everything. Maharaj ji too finishes his shopping. The goons notice a girl from Ganga’s school. They ask her about the CD. She doesn’t have it. People start staring at them so they get conscious. The girl walks away. Ganga recalls that she forgot to take cash back from the shopkeeper. She runs back to the shop to get it. The goons go to that side again. One of the goons notices Ganga. He points it out to his friend. This is the same girl who was in the market that day. They decide to kidnap her as soon as they get a chance. Ganga too notices them as she turns to go. The goons pretend to look somewhere else. Ganga leaves. The goons look at her and decide to follow her.

Ganga and Maharaj ji are heading home. The goons are quietly following them. A lady collides with Ganga. She turns because of the impact and finds those guys coming in that direction. They yet again pretend that they are looking for something. Ganga keeps looking back. She understands that those guys are following them. Maharaj ji asks her what is she looking back so often. Ganga walks up to those men. She asks them why they are following her. Are you thieves? You look so by face. Don’t think that I have any money. What will you do with Rs. 5? Have you come to kidnap me? Maharaj ji tries to divert her but she continues talking. Do you make kids beg or sell them? Why are you following me if you aren’t goons? I am not a kid. I understand everything. I will take you to police. She gathers everyone and tells that these people have been following her since long. The goons call her a trouble. She has gathered all the people. Do you have a CD? She affirms. I have music CDs. There are very good songs in them. I am going to take part in dance competition. Will you take part too? That is for kids who study in school. The date of form submission has gone past. What will you do with it? He asks her to forgive him. go home. She says that was where I was going. Will you follow me again? He negates. Ganga finally leaves with Maharaj ji. They still want to find out where she lives. If this is the same girl then she will surely have that CD. Maharaj ji is amused by her act in the market. They enter inside their house. The goons see the name plate outside – Chaturvedi Sadan! They are shocked to realise that it is Niru’s house. Did he get that CD?

Niru is outside Solanki’s house. A tea vendor gives him tea. Niru asks him about Solanki. Since when is the house locked? The tea vendor is clueless. Niru gets a call from Madhvi. She asks him if he met that reporter. Are you coming back tomorrow? He says I might have to stay for a little longer. I have to meet him. I don’t know when he will be back. I am perfectly fine. I will stay at my friend’s place. I will be back as soon as I meet Solanki. She tells him to take care and ends the call.

Pulkit’s girlfriend (Sonali) isn’t coming to school today. Her mother is feeling low. I thought to stay at home to cheer her up. We will practise tomorrow. He says sorry to her as his father is fighting the case against her uncle. She hopes that this tension does not affect their relation. He too is worried about the same.

Sagar is ready for school. He is irked that he might get late as Ganga is taking too long to come. Why did you ask her to go with me? Madhvi tells him that she must be coming in a second. Ganga comes there just then. I don’t have to only get ready for school in the morning like you. I have to do a lot more. He knows it too. Let’s not waster time in fighting again. Let’s go. they bicker again. madhvi has to control them. did you (Sagar) eat medicine? Sagar nods. Ganga points out that it was she who gave him the medicine. He had forgotten about it. Amma ji tells them both to leave now. Both of them say bye to the family members. Madhvi is very much worried for Sagar. He has participated so excitedly but his health is not good. Amma ji is sure nothing will happen to Sagar. Let him do what he likes! Madhvi too hopes that everything goes smoothly.

The mystery man is in MLA’s office. It is surprising. You dint want to meet me till yesterday and today I can be of your help? What is it that your loyal people cannot do and I can do? MLA says no one here recognizes you. You can do this work easily. Keep an eye on Niru’s house. I have got to know that that CD is in his house.

The guy says if that was the case then Niru would have submitted in the court by then. MLA knows it but court will inform me before any such thing is submitted. Till now nothing of that sort has happened. So it means that the CD is there only. The guy (Shankar) agrees to do his work. Don’t forget me later. MLA nods and hugs him.

In the car, Sagar is singing loud while he is listening to music with earplugs on. She pulls them out of his ears. They bicker again over Sagar’s Dance Teacher and Dance Competition. She gets down as she reaches her school. He makes her say thank you to him as he has dropped her off first. The girls are surprised to see Ganga coming in a big car. Bulbul says I too can come in a car as my father is a driver. This widow cannot be a daughter of a biggie. She might be a maid in someone’s house. Reena notices Sagar in the car. He is same kid whom we saw in that school the other day. Reena asks Ganga whose car it was. Ganga replies that it is the car of the person in whose house she stays. All the girls go inside. Bulbul looks angry.

The kids take a short break. Dancer Teacher compliments Sagar as he is dancing well. Chandan asks Sagar to tell Sir that he does not want to be a main dancer. Sagar denies. The one who deserves to be the main lead will get the position. I wont say anything to anyone. You should hone your dancing skills if you want to be the main lead. Chandan walks away angrily. He notices Sagar taking some medicines. He gets curious.

Gunwanti is the head of cultural department. Mrs. Chautala comes there to help her. Principal Ma’am has brought her house’s music system so the girls can participate. Ganga is glad that they all will practise and participate. Gunwanti points out that she spoke big words in Lawrence School but they don’t have the resources for it. Principal Ma’am reminds her that ebing a teacher she has to motivate kids. Gunwanti nods. But who will teach them? It is a different thing to dance in a wedding while it is something else to dance in a competition. Mrs. Chautala (The PT Teacher) offers to do it her style. Principal Ma’am cannot call a dance teacher as they cannot pay the fees. Ganga does not even want it. Gunwanti says it isn’t a game to win this competition. All the schools of Banaras are participating. It isn’t as easy to win as you are thinking. I will still say that we don’t stand a chance to win this competition!
