Shaurya is nearby lake and is doing pooja with caravan of people. Festival is going on. One woman is sitting on roof with a boy, she is in veil. Boy says if moon comes out and father doesnt come then you wont eat? she is fasting and waiting for her husband. She sees moon in sky and looks at through net. Girl says I will wait for him (her face not shown but voice of Mahek). She takes off her veil and turns around, her face is shown and its Mahek. Shaurya is nearby lake and cries, he thinks Mahek its been an year since you left, I hope you are happy wherever you are.
(Mahek is Vandana now). Her mother in law comes to her and says Vandana please break your fast seeing her husband Madhav’s photon, Mahek says no I will wait for him. Mahek’s son is on terrace with her, son says I am going down, he runs away before she can stop him. Mahek runs behind him, she comes to door of her hout and hesitate before going out but goes out to search for her son Neel. Neel comes nearby lake and strikes with Shaurya. Shaurya asks if he is fine? Neel says sorry uncle. Shaurya smiles and leaves, Mahek comes there and doesnt see Shaurya leaving. She runs to Neel and hugs him. She asks him to not do this again.
At Sharma house, Mansi and Kanta break their fasts. Jeevan makes Kanta drink water and break her fast but Kanta cries and sobs. Jeevan says I told you
to not fast, you are ill. Kanta says today would be Mahek’s first karwachauth, God did what he wanted to do with us, we kept bearing it and thought that God is doing right with us and kept our patience but I wont forgive God now, he took my Mahek away, I wont forgive God and Shaurya. Jeevan says you are still miffed with Shaurya? he is innocent. Kanta says no I gave him my daughter and what he did? Ravi says it was an accident. Kanta says it was his fault, Shaurya promised to keep my Mahek protected but he didnt, he has snatched our Mahek from us, I wont forgive him, she leaves. Jeevan looks at Mahek’s photo which has garland on it.
Nearby lake, Neel huffs. Mahek says I told you not run, your breathing is uneven now, she gives him inhaler, she hugs him and says you know I get worried about you when you do that, and if papa gets to know about it then he will scold you and also take you to doctor. Neel says I am not scared of papa or doctor. Mahek gets dizzy, he says you should eat something. Mahek says lets go home and wait for papa then I will break my fast. Neel says no I wont leave till you eat something, I will show you papa’s photo on phone and you can break your fast. Mahek says okay and asks him to wait. Mahek goes to a stall and buys things needed to break her fast and for pooja. Shaurya is nearby her. He buys water bottle and drinks water, he has back towards Mahek so she doesnt see him. Mahek comes back to Neel with aarti plate. She ligts diya and puts it in net mesh. Shaurya is nearby her, he suddenly recalls his marriage with Mahek, how happy they were, he gets sad and leaves from there leaving his used water bottle there. Mahek looks at moon throught net, Neel is showing her his papa’s photo on phone. Mahek turns her net and suddenly Shaurya is infront of her and she sees him through her net, she is stunned and thinks oh God whom did I see? Shaurya doesnt see her and leaves. Mahek doesnt recognize him but keeps looking at him leaving. Neel says Maa you dont have water here, I wil bring it. He goes and finds Shaurya’s water bottl on bench from which he drank, he brings it to Mahek and asks her to drink. Mahek drinks water from it. She turns and finds a man coming towards her, she gets scared seeing him. He is dressed in desi attire, he comes to Mahek and glares at her. She is terrified. Man throws her aarti plate, Neel hides behind Mahek. Man(Madhav/Mahek’s husband) glares at them for leaving house, he grabs Mahek’s hand and drags her and Neel back to house.
Madhav’s mother talks to his father and says I am worried about his antics. Father says he is your son and is useless. Mother says dont call him useless, when he asked daughter in law to not leave house then why did she leave? Father says so he can raise hand on her? I never raised hand on you. Madhav drags Mahek and Neel in house, he shouts that when I asked them to not leave house then why did they go out? this Neel ranaway and will get punished now, he is about to slap Neel but father pushes Madhav away, Madhav says this Neel goes out and this Vandana(Mahek’s name is Vandana now) goes out behind him so she can have affair with other men, Vandana/Mahek says what are you saying? He grabs her face and says I know what you are upto, we have been together for 7 years and you know you are not allowed to go out but you dont listen, I will teach you a lesson. Madhav’s father pushes him away and says dont raise hand on them otherwise I know how to raise hand too, he asks Mahek and Neel to go to their room, they leave. Madhav asks father to not interfere in his matter, you know what can happen if she leaves house. He glares at his father and leaves.
Mahek is in room with Neel, she wipes his wound on leg and says to Neel that you know father gets angry when you go out of house, dont do that again. Neel says no I will go out and I will not be scared of papa anymore. Mahek asks him to leave anger aside. Neel asks her to tell him a story, Mahek tells him a story about king and queen, she says I get worried for you, if you sleep then I will sleep.Neel lies in her lap, Mahek sings lullaby, Neel falls asleep. Mahek sadly looks at him.
In morning, Shaurya is at place where Mahek and he went for honeymoon, he comes to market where he and Mahek went for shopping. He recalls taking her pictures while she shopped. He sadly looks around, humari adhuri kahani plays.. Shaurya comes to jewelry store and recalls how he bought earrings for Mahek from there, then he find same bangle store from where Mahek bought bangles, he recalls his last few moments with Mahek, he is remided of her when he looks at candy floss which he bought for her.. Humari adhuri kahani plays.. Shaurya wipes his tears as Karona and Vicky comes there. Karona says we are going to mandir, do you want to see wedding card first? Shaurya says dont involve me in all this. Karona says I know you have come for Mahek’s death anniversary here but its about Vicky’s happiness so come to mandir with us, Shaurya says no I am not in mood, you both go. Karona and Vicky sadly leaves. Shaurya looks on.
Karona comes to Shaurya in market and asks him to come with her and Vicky to mandir? he says no you people go. Shaurya thinks how to tell them that I wont have peace without Mahek.. Karona and Vicky are leaving but Shaurya stops them and says wait, I am coming, Karona smiles and says lets go.
Mahek is working in her new house. Her mother in law asks her about utensils. Neev is learning singing from his grandfather. Mother in law says they have my house music house. She brings tea for him, he asks her to make him drink with his hands. Mother in law says have shame, you are oldie now, dont have to show your romantic side. Mahek blushes seeing their romance. She says to him that you dont do anything, my son has sweet shop and it works a lot. Father says your son is a goon, he doesnt let anyone else
open sweets shop and thats how he is earning. Mother says you are jealous of my son, he says he is my son too. Father says I am taking Neev to mandir, we will sing bhajans there, he leaves with Neev and his music instruments, Mahek smiles.
Karona, Shaurya and Vicky comes to mandir. She gives wedding card to priest, she says to God that dont take more test of us, let us have peace now.
Grandfather and Neev(Mahek’s son) are outside mandir and singing bhajans. Vicky and Karona stops to listen them. Shaurya goes to pool, one baba comes to him, its same baba who came to Mahek one year back and warned her about danger she was in. Baba holds his hand but Shaurya jerks him away. Baba says I warned before and now new chapter of story is starting, there is nothing outside to find, open your inner thoughts and eyes, Shaurya looks on, Baba leaves. Karona and Vicky comes him. Vicky says that bhajan singer has such nice voice. Karona says call them, we will call them to sing in our house wedding, Shaurya says its not needed, lets go. Karona says wait for a minute. Vicky comes to Grandfather and Neev and asks if he can meet his aunt? They come to Karona. Karona says to Grandfather that you sing very nicely, I wanted to request for you to come in our house wedding and sing there, dont say no, we will arrange for you transport and everything, we will pay you too. Neev says my father just sings in mandir for gifts and rewards only, not payment. Vicky gives money to grandfather,he tries to deny but Vicky gives him and says we have given him gift, now happy? Neev says happy now. Neev sees Shaurya’s car and says its so big, can we go in this car home? Grandfather says we will take auto. Shaurya comes to Neev and asks his name? he says its Neev. Shaurya says I will drop you both home in my car, Grandfather says its not needed, its near, we can go, Shaurya says then its more easy, I will drop you both. Karona says to Vicky that I have seen Shaurya’s smile after so much time today, Vicky says this kid is magician. Karona asks Shaurya to drop them, they will leave.
Shaurya brings Neev and his grandfather outside their house. Neev says this is my house, my mom makes very good pickle. Shaurya says to grandfather that your house is nice, grandfather says its very old of our ancestors. Mahek is on terrace and is putting clothes on rope for drying. Neev screams at her to down, he came in a big car. Mahek covers her face with veil and looks down, she sees Shaurya there. Shaurya is not looking her way and talking to grandfather. Mahek sees Shaurya and recalls how she saw him near lake, she says Neev is again with strangers, he will get us scolded by his father.
Grandfather says I have some work, he asks Neev to take Shaurya inside for tea, he leaves. Mahek comes to doorsteps. Shaurya is about to turn to door but gets call, he says to Neev that sorry I have work, I will have tea some other time, he sits in car and leaves before Shaurya can see Mahek. Madhav comes there and sees Shaurya’s car leaving. He drags him inside house and asks if he found new father? I asked you to not roam around., Neev says I went to mandir with grandfather to sing bhajan, Madhav raises hand but Mahek hides him behind her. Madhav says he wants to beg people by singing bhajan, I doubt if he is even my son.
Mahek glares at him. Madhav says how dare you look me in the eyes? look down, Mahek keeps glaring him, he says let me teach you lesson, he is about to slap Mahek but grandfather comes there and stops him, he asks Mahek to go in room, she leaves. Madhav says you couldnt do anything by singing bhajans, you are useless and making my son useless too. Grandfather says you earn money but your wife is not happy with you and your son is scared of you, I know why you dont let Vandana leave this house, there are secrets buried in this house and dont let me say them, he glares at him and leaves.
In room, Neev is in tears, Mahek hugs him and says dont be sad? do you want some sweets? what bhajan did you sing? Neev sadly looks at him, she hugs him and consoles him.
Shaurya is in market again where he went to with Mahek last time. He thinks Mahek you are with me everywhere I go, your memories are with me, I wish you were with me too, he recalls his sweet moments with her. Naina plays as he keeps recalling the moments. Shaurya thinks that Mahek promised to never leave but she left, why did you leave Mahek? he recalls how she said that she will never leave him and even if she went away, he will feel her presence near her.
Mahek is sadly working in kitchen. Granfather comes there, she asks when did you come? he asks why she is crying? she says I am cutting onions, not cry. He says forgive me, the pain that you are feeling is not your fate, its my sin too. Mahek says maybe 7 years went by, maybe I am used to bear this pain, maybe I will live remaining life like this, I am not miffed with you but I just feel that if I can ever take breath, live freely without any fear. Grandfather says soon it will happen, soon I am going to give you a good news, he leaves. Mahek thinks God keep my Neev safe, only your miracle and lesson our pain.
