Wednesday 20th March Update on Gangaa
Amma ji worries for Ganga. What if something happens to her? I shouldn’t have sent her alone. I will go to find her. She covers herself with a shawl as she goes out of her room stealthily.
Ganga continues running. Her state is still not good but she does not stop. She hides behind a truck. The men go in different direction to search for her. She resumes running. She finally lands in Amma ji’s arms. Amma ji hugs her.
Sagar gets up again feeling uneasy. He comes to his Dadi’s room but she isn’t there. He tries waking Ganga but finds pillows on the bed instead. Where is Ganga? Where is Dadi? Where can they both go at this hour? He notices his Dadi hugging Ganga and taking her inside with her somehow. He goes out. Amma ji is shocked to see him. He finds Ganga in an unconscious state. Where are you bringing her from? Amma ji makes him take her to her room. What to tell him now?
Sagar puts Ganga on the bed and covers her with a duvet. He goes out to talk to his Dadi next. Tell me what the matter is. You said Ganga is sleeping inside. Where did you bring her from then? Did you see her condition? She is so hurt. Amma ji says I dint want to tell you anything but I had to. I was also shocked to realise it. Ganga has a habit of sleep walking. Sagar is surprised. Amma ji adds Ganga has slept in my room since childhood. He asks her if it happens every night. Amma ji denies. it has decreased nowadays. I always used to lock the room from outside. She sees weird dreams many times. She tells me about it. He says you could have told me earlier. I would have taken her to doc. Amma ji lies that she took Ganga to Vaid ji. he said it will get better with age. I give her the medicine. Don’t say anything to Ganga. It can affect her badly as well. This is the reason I dint tell anyone about it. He looks confused. She makes him promise her that he wont tell anyone. He suggests taking Ganga to a doc.
Amma ji nods. You look tired. Sleep now. I am also her Dadi like you. I will look after her. He goes. Amma ji thinks of Baba’s words. Forgive me for lying. One has to lie so many times to hide one truth. You (Lord) know I am doing it all for Sagar.
Ganga wakes up to find Sagar near her, and utters whether she is dreaming or he actually is so close, while he caresses her face and hairs. she
gets up. ammaji sees this, as she wakes up with a heavy headache, and eyes her wounds, and asks how this happened. he remembers what ammaji told
him, and how ganga doesnt know about it. she complains of a headache, saying that she was okay by the evening, but cant remember anything after
that. he asks her to remember clearly about what happened later. ammaji wonders what she knows and remembers, and what if sagar gets to know. ganga
starts giving vague descriptions, and he asks her to think more clearly. she starts recounting the deathly and demonic location, while he is
boggled. ganga asks why is she seeing this. he wards it off as a bad dream. he talks about how baba came for money, and he went out with pulkit to
search for him, but couldnt find him. he says that she must have heard it in sleep, and hence dreamt about it. ammaji thinks that she has to meet
baba. sagar inside gets to giving her meds. she begins to get up, but he makes her sit down and put balm, while she hurriedly talks about how she
has to reach college soon. but he forcibly makes her sit and then applies balm on her forehead. she eyes him overwhelmingly. he then begins to
caressing, and she teases him if his work is over. he smiles and complies. he insists that he shall go with her to the college, and asking her to
get ready, he too leaves to freshen up.
Location: Baba’s residence
ammaji lands at baba’s residence and softly calls out to him, as the door is locked. inside, baba and his accomplice are totally drunk and
inebriated. baba wakes up, and wonders why the old hag came here. they then wonder if ganga told anything. he thinks that had she known then she
would never have been so gentle. they wonder what to do now. he asks his accomplice to keep her busy outside, so that he can rectify the situation
inside. his feriend goes out and tells her, that baba is meditating, and she says that she shall wait. the man says that he shall call for her,
when meditation is over. she complies. they take this time to rectify the situation inside. once they get back in their form, he opens the door,
and lets ammaji in to meet baba. she with great reverance goes inside, and greets him. she apologises for what happened yesterday, as she doesnt
know why she ran yesterday. she asks for a solution. he starts ranting as to how the yagna was incomplete for the first time, and a big penance
shall have to be done for this grave mistake, and that there shall be a mahapuja in the night itself, the cost of which shall be double. he also
says that the presence of that girl is paramount, and asks if she shall do it. she hurriedly complies. he sends her off. after she leaves, the
friend asks whats going on. the baba says that he needs the girl, and ammaji’s money too. they start planning their conspiracy.
Location: On the road
Ganga and sagar drive together on the bicyckle, relishing every moment with each other. as he is lost in her looks, they have an accident, and both
are smeared in dirt and stain their clothes and body. they eye each other. sagar asks if she is okay. she somehow gets up with his help, both
thoroughly amused. it brings in a sudden physical proximity between them, as they bask in the glory of their new found love, while his touch
emboldens, and she quivers with new sensations at the slightests touch. while they get back up, she starts walking with a limp. he notices it, and
immediately rushes to her help, and despite her protests, he carries her in the arms, while onlookers look and are amused. she is shy and
ambarassed, while he undauntingly carries her on the road, in the arms.
Location: Sagar’s residence
While the floor is being mopped, ammaji barely escapes slipping, and then sits down. animated family banter continues, as all housemates are busy
in their work. pulkit finds this chance to romance his wife, as she is about to slip. they enter into a romantic eyelock. sagar’s mother is amused
to catch them in a romantic position, and ammaji notices too, while they are embarassed and flustered. she coughs to break their moment. then sagar
and ganga return, and all are shocked to see their mud stained contours, and ask what happened. all stand tensedly. ganga lets go of her hand from
sagar’s by reflex. he explains everything. his mother asks if he is alright. ganga says that she isnt hurt much. ammaji asks her not to fuss
around. she then asks sagar to go and change fast, and reprimands them for their carelessness. he puts the blame on ganga, and a verbal arguement
ensues, much to the amusement of the rest of the family members. one keeps blaming the other. ganga accuses him of seeing dreams in broad daylight.
he talks up saying that unlike her, she doesnt have atleast the habit of sleep walking. ammaji gets tensed, while he is flustered that he broke up
the secret. ganga is boggled and shocked too to hear this about herself. ammaji tries to distract them, but ganga holds on to it, and asks sagar
about what he said. he apologises to ammaji for not being able to keep this a secret. ganga is boggled. they all question whats the matter. he
informs how ganga went out in sleep last night, and ammaji herself got her back, and then told him how and what happened. all are shocked, while ganga is stunned. the screen freezes on ganga’s shocked face.READ NEXT/ THURS 21 MAR ON GANGAA
