Lies of the heart 21 April 2020: Samrat’s residence
Despite samrat saying no, mandira insists on being taken to the park too along with shaurya. His family insists him too. samrat says that he wont be able to handle both kids, and says that her exams are approaching and that she needs to study, and that he would take her tomorrow. he happily leaves with shaurya, shocking all of them. kanchan and urmi are tensed with this kind of an unusual reaction. tauji thinks that when a person is unusually happy, it should be doubtful and doubts his behaviour.
Later, mandira is still upset thinking about samrat’s refusal. urmi asks her to study. but mandira says that she is tired and wont study anymore. Urmi gives her some sums to do. Mandira makes mistakes, and urmi asks her what happened. Mandira says that she isnt able to study today, due to the fact that samrat didnt take her to the park. tauji comes and tells her that samrat would definitely take her to the park tomorrow on his orders. mandira is excited and leaves to tell her mother. urmi starts arranging her books, and tauji asks her why didnt samrat take mandira to the park. urmi is confused and baffled. she then says that she doesnt know. tauji tells her that in war, ost important is clarity and keen observation, and grasping the chance is winning and losing it is defeat and hence every bet is to be carefully played. He asks her to think how is he able to do something so easily that he hasnt done in three years ever. urmi says that samrat is actually doing everything. tauji asks if she knows and verified it for sure. tauji tells her that he isnt or not, but she definitely isnt doing her work properly. urmi asks why is he saying that as she is doing. Tauji says that a mother can judge if the child is right or wrong, and what a mother can do, a father cant and has never been able to, since ages. He tells her that this age old tradition has changed or not in samrat’s case, she has to find it out. She is asked not to blindly trust samrat, and verify his actual deeds. He gives her an indirect hint about something wrong at the park. urmi wonders why did tauji hint that, and wonders if there’s anything that she should know. she decides to go to the park.
In the park
Samrat takes shaurya to the park, and hires a aldy to take care of him, reminding her that her salary would be cancelled if she messes up. She complies. He goes over to the cafe, thinking that samrat has a solution to everything, and shaurya can play to his heart’s content, in the care of the hired babysitter. Tauji reaches the park and sees this, and thinks that samrat is playing smart, and that he knew that samrat would misuse his advise, and thinks that he is his teacher and tht he is oevrexerting his teaching too much and decides to teach samrat a lesson.
As all like the girl, granny is relieved that asha’s education didnt come up, and asks the priest to find a suitable date. Saroj asks granny’s permission so that gaurav and asha can talk in private. out of her fear of asha’s truth being out, she says that it isnt needed and asks gaurav if he wants to ask anything, and he denies. saroj asks maybe asha needs to ask anything, but her mother denies for her. But annu still insits that they should have a talk and get to know each other. garnny doesnt like this but isnt able to say anything. gaurav, annu and asha leave for the next room. Annu gets a call, and excuses herself leaving Gaurav and asha alone. gaurav asks asha why she being such a desirable girl wants a man like him, who’s much aged than her, and divorcee too. Asha says that her mother says that he is a very nice man. Gaurav asks if she knows that his wife has left her and she says that she does, and also adds he wasnt to be blamed in this.
In the park
Shaurya is playing in the park, while the babysitter is busy on the phone. urmi finds him and is happy but then gets tensed, when shaurya asks for water from the lady, and she denies him harshly, and gets busy to chat again. Shaurya takes the water himself and gets back to playing. urmi wonders who is this strange lady, shaurya was wanting water from. Urmi finds shaurya being treated harshly by that lady and wonders when he came with samrat, then where is samrat now. she finds that the lady tries to get shaurya to come home, but he doesnt comply and defiantly says that he would play longer. finally she gives up, and thros his things at him, on the floor. urmi is shocked to see her son being treated like this by a strange lady, while samrat is nowhere to be seen. urmi thinks that tauji must have said all that, since he must have seen the way samrat is handling and bringing up shaurya, and thinks that samrat didnt do this right.
She thinks that this lady isnt right but more importantly wonders where is samrat. she follows the lady, and finds samrat watching cricket along with his male friends. the lady bugs him with what happened and how Shaurya isnt wanting to come, and that he shoudl look himself. When the lady asks for her money, samrat gives it to her, and gets busy in watching cricket again. urmi is shocked that samrat could be so callous about his responsibility. she remembers that shaurya is alone in the parek and when she returns, she doesnt find him anywhere. Finally, she finds a huge dog approaching shaurya, and he being very scared of that person. urmi asks him to stand still, so that the dog leaves him alone. Meanwhile, urmi is shocked as she finds shaurya retreating on the main road, and a car approaching. She is scared for shaurya. She screams and rushes towards him. She saves him somehow as the car speeds by. She tries to calm him down, caressing him profusely to get the scare out of his heart. she laments at the way samrat was callous.
Later, samrat busy on the phone, comes and sits in his car. he asks the driver if he doesnt want to go today. The driver asks about shaurya. Samrat is shocked and rushes out to the park to find him. He starts talking frantically to people, asking if they have seen his son, but in vain. When he isnt able to find shaurya after much searching and hollering for his name, he is distraught and wonders what to say now and how to face his family.
tauji demands for something sweet from shashi, while she instigates tauji against urmi, that she is too carefree. Shashi’s husband asks her not to be against her bahus all the time. Tauji plays along and says that he shouldnt favour the bahus like that, as shashi too got out of control. shashi is silent, when tauji refers to her. while they are all bantering, Samrat comes is haste and rushing, asking if shaurya came home. samrat’s father asks how can he come home, as he was with him only. aditi asks what happened, as shaurya went with him only. tauji too asks if he lost him somewhere. all are shocked and tensed. tauji hints indirectly at his irresponsibility. samrat is highly tensed and says that he doesnt know. diwaker asks what does he mean. Samrat is engulfed by the idea if the maid kidnapped him. Shashi begins to lament, while samrat asks her to shut up and let him concentrate. he asks about urmi, and is told that he went to her parent’s house. Samrat talks on the phone, after he comes home, while all are apalled that shaurya is lost. He calkls the police and tells them how he hired a maid, to take care of his baby, but thinks that she has run away with his child. All are shocked as in his frustration, he blurts it out on the phone, in front of his family, who are shocked beyong wits as they come to know what samrat did. Kanchan expresses her shock at him having lost shaurya. they all reprimand him for this. they corner samrat from all ends. Samrat asks them all to shut down. tauji is happy and just hints at him that he is filled with shame, as this means urmi was right in thinking, that samrat cant manage the child’s responsibility for two days and he proved that if urmi isnt around what would happen to the child. tauji says that believeing in him, he himself insulted urmi, and asks what would he answer and how would he face her now. samrat is shut in silence.
He reminds him about the lectures that he keeps giving urmi, and how would he face urmi now, as with money, a man can be rich or poor, and cant be deemed to be a good father. shashi is irritated that samrat is being reprimanded. Tauji asks how could he even think of hiring a maid from his money and become a good father, as for that he had to become a child with his, and that to understand them, money isnt needed but a heart is. Samrat’s father asks to let this be gone, and find out about shaurya first and file a report in the police. all ask him to do something. kanchan says that urmi would go mad wondering where shaurya is. He tells them all that noone would tell urmi anything, and says that he would go and search shaurya and leaves for the main exit. All comply. But he is shocked when he finds urmi standing alone, in the doorway, facing him with consternation. The family is tensed, while samrat is tensed that his callous behaviour shall be out in front of urmi now. Manwhile, tauji is happy that the plan worked out almost exactly like he had planned it all along.
All are relieved when they find shaurya with urmi, clutching at her hand. samrat however is filled with amazement as to how this happened. he hugs shaurya and asks him where had he gone and if he is alright. shaurya asks him where had he gone. Samrat is silenced looking at his innocent eyes and then at urmi’s hurt eyes. samrat asks urmi how did shaurya come to him, and where was she. Urmi looks away and says that he should have knows this, as shaurya was with him. samrat says that he too is asking this, and reprimands her instead for this, as he was driven nuts while thinking about his son, while she went around roaming with him. Shashi too plays along and begins to reprimand urmi. they both say that urmi just tries to prove her point and irritate him unnecessarily. urmi eyes tauji, and getting his consent, urmi says that she dopesnt have an ything to prove, and that the god forbid, she got in time or else shaurya would have been in grave danger. tauji asks her to explain everything clearly, while samrat is tensed that his truth maybe exposed now. urmi is silent, but then finally says that she was going to her house, when she saw shaurya running away from the dog, being scared, and that he was running on the main road, amidst huge traffic of cars.
She says that had she not reached in time, shaurya would have had an accident,. shaurya too narrates his trauma. samrat is frustrated and disturbed. Kanchan tells urmi about the maid that samrat had hired for his son, and again asks samrat how could he have done this. Urmi too asks this question from him. Samrat is irritated at this question, which stumps him. aditit too tries to advise him. urmi says that shaurya;s mother may not have been there, but his father was. samrat asks what does she mean, and if she is trying to hint that he cant take care of his son. tauji too asks urmi what is she trying to say, and asks her to say clearly. samrat is told by urmi that she just wants to say that a mother is a mother after all, and she takes the risk of even her life for the well being of her child, and that a caretaker can just do the job, as a duty but cant replace the mother, as she doesnt bear the pain of carrying the child in the womb, as only a mother bears that, and hence the caretaker isnt to be blamed.
shashi and samrat are slammed shut. Samrat’s father too reprimands him for that, while he still clarifies that he was in the cafeteria, and watching a match, and asked the maid to look over. kanchan too reprimands him, saying that a mother cant do this ever, to have fun when asked to take care of the kid. Samrat asks her to shut up and stop lecturing him. urmi says that what has been done is a bygone and she doesnt need anything more than that. She takes shaurya upstairs to change his clothes. But samrat, disturbed at his condition in front of the family, asks her to stop right there. urmi complies.
All are tensed. He goes over to her. He takes shaurya in his arms, and tells urmi that she doesnt need to be happy, and not assume that without her, shaurya cant be raised as even orphans are brought up, and he and his mother are here for his son, and hence asks her to stay in her limits as the house wont be affected if she isnt here, neither him nor his son too. urmi is hurt and apalled. tauji is tensed to find him like this. samrat’s father asks what nonsense is he talking. samrat says that he is right, as her stature isnt more than that maid, and atleast she still earns, while she stays here for free, and that she is even worse than servant. All are horrified that samrat could talk like this, while shashi is happy at urmi being insulted. urmi stoically says that she understood what he is trying to say, but one thing he too has to understand that their shaurya isnt an orphan and that she is his mother. samrat is shocked, while all are tensed at samrat’s callous behaviour. she looks at tauji, who approves of her actions. tauji thinks that samrat has made a mistake and on top of that is reprimanding others.
