Abhi wakes up with the alarm ringing at 7 and finds Pragya sleeping peacefully. He notices her shivering and puts duvet on her after which he goes inside to get ready. Arpita waits for Pragya in the prayer room but she does not show up.
Alia : do you think she has habit to wake up early this morning
Arpita : its okay, she is new, slowly she will start following routine
Alia : I hope you are right mom, do you want me go check her, so at least she can come on breakfast at time
Arpita : yea go check her, I don’t have hope on your brother
Abhi comes out and still finds Pragya sleeping on sofa. Alia comes in and shocked to see Pragya sleeping.
Alia : I knew she might not wake up, bro why didn’t you wake her
Abhi : I tried but look at her as if she didn’t sleep from long time
Alia : bhabhi wake up, its 8 (puts alarm on her ear but Pragya does not wake up)
Abhi : Alia, I got good idea (take glass of water to throw on Pragya)
Alia : bhai, what are you doing, think of something else, I wonder how her mom might waked her up
Abhi hits Pragya with pillow but in vain. With no choice he shouts loud on her ears scaring her. Hearing her voice everybody rushes upstairs.
Pragya : is this new way to wake up anybody
Abhi : yes for lazybones like you never wake up with other way. actually I should have thrown water on instead
Pragya : shut up, its only 8 right now I wake at 9 everyday, and people like you don’t know to behave with girls
Rakesh is furious seeing Pragya’s attitude and goes out.
Arpita : Pragya, get ready quickly and come downstairs for breakfast
Pragya : yes aunty (goes inside the bathroom taking her towel)
Alia, Abhi and Purab comes downstairs and wait for Pragya to join them.
Rakesh : Arpita, you finish the remaining ritual and explain Pragya everything
Arpita : don’t worry I will take care
Pragya gets late in getting ready and clashes on Rakesh when is about to get up from chair. He leaves for office and tells Abhi to come quickly.
Arpita : come have some breakfast
Pragya : thank you
Abhi : Purab, lets go till she finishes her food we will read our office
Pragya stares at him with red eyes
Arpita : Abhi, are you both not getting late for your work
Abhi : I will see you mom, take care
After breakfast Arpita tells Pragya she have to cook food for everybody as part of ritual
Pragya : you mean I have to make it by myself
Arpita: you know how to cook right? at least a desert should be fine
Pragya gets in thinking even after she gives assurance to Arpita that she knows how to cook.
Arpita : Alia, get that gift for ritual
Alia : yes mom, here it is
Arpita : Pragya, this is our tradition (gives her the jewelry and saree)
Pragya bends down to take the blessing which Arpita hesitantly gives.

Sarla and Arpita meets each other outside the temple but are awkward to talk with each other.
Sarla : Arpita, how are you?
Arpita : I am fine, I don’t know what to say about whatever happened

Sarla : how is my Pragya, I know you all will take good care of her
Arpita : she is fine but she has to change herself if you want her to stay in this marriage, I am hoping only one thing that her past does not affect the future of everybody
Both woman goes to the priest with Abhi and Pragya’s horoscope.
Priest : this both are destined together, all number matches but
Arpita : but? is there any problem
