Location: Udaipur haveli
Mahi telling everybody how much they enjoyed at the picnic but teases shiv that even though they missed him and anandi but he didnt. when shiv says that he did, noone believes it. Sanchi says that the way they address each other is very formal and sounds funny. mahi too supports and asks to take inspiration from dadaji who refers to his plants too endearingly and says that now only dadaji can tech them now. Ira too says the same and asks shiv to address anandi by name. He is caught offguard but then falters and adds a ‘ji’ to her name. He starts again and succeeds this time and repeats for everyone’s pleasure. Next she too has to face the same test. Everybody asks her to call shiv by his name. she is shy but on the family’s and shiv’s reminder of the saree shop she tries, misses out on the first chance. mahi proposes that shiv has to give 500rs everytime anandi falters to take his name. shiv protests but ultimately gives in and tells anandi to speed up in saying his name or else he would go bankrupt. When he sees everyone busy in eating food, he passes a chit to anandi asking her to come outside to meet him after dinner. she is tensed to read this.
Anandi who is as it is nervous on seeing the whole courtyard, lit up romantically, is reminded of her intimacy with jagiya to discomfort her all the more. she comes to the centre of the yard and is kind of disgusted when shiv grabs her from behind and says that he has called her here to tell that he loves her very much. He says he wants to love her like noone has loved before and wants to be with her all the time. She is highly irritated and uncomfortable. shiv finds her turned towards her to find her in tears. She breaks down saying that she wont be able to do this and apologizes for the same. Shiv is tensed.
He too bends down and wiping tears from her face, says that he knew she wasnt sleeping in the study and knows the reason for her pretense. He understands that she has always wanted only person insuch kind of intimacy, and thats jagdish who she was good friends with and then married. He says that he understands its difficult for her to accept him in place of jagiya. He sensed that from her reaction that she was not at peace. He says that he didnt want to go with his family just to know what she is going through and thinking and if what he was thinking about her was right or not. and now that he has seen her reaction, he knows that he was right.
Shiv advices her that next time she wants to hide anything, she doesnt have to because her eyes give her away as she did when she got uncomfortable with his intimacy. Anandi says that she’s sad and angry too that even though she entered into this marriage willingly, without any force but still the past keeps haunting her. she says not to take her wrong since she wants to move ahead in life and see the present but still isnt able to distance herself from the past. She says that shiv deserved a better partner who could reciprocate his feelings towards her and says that she isnt able to convince herself for this. shiv says that she didnt have to go through this emotional turmoil alone as she could have discussed this with him just like prior instances. He asks if she still has faith in him. She vehemently denies saying thats not the case. in fact, she cant trust herself. He says that he would wait for the time till she restores faith in herself and this relation woth her.He says that he promises that he wont touch her till she accepts him and her relation with him by heart. He asks her to be happy and stressfree and relaxes. Anandi thanks him, filled with gratitude for understanding her without her having said anything and no demands and complaints in return for that. shiv says that this is what a good partner should ideally do, what he is doing.
Shiv lights up a candle to mark the start of their new friendship and illuminate their belief in each other with its light. anandi too helps him addressing him as collector sahab. Shiv laments that he would again have to give rs.500 to mahi. She finally calls him as Shiv and thanks him and says that he doesnt know how much happiness he has brought in the lives of so many people since he relieved dadisa, made bhairo and sumitra proud and looking up in the sky, points out that her mother’s soul would be in peace too seeing her married to him. Shiv asks if she’s happy in all of this and she nods her head. The screen freezes on their romantic eyelock.
Underlying message: When a girl gets married, she has an unnecessary and baseless hesitation and scare in her mind that is theresposibility of the husband to remove. in remarriage, this becomes all the more important for the husband to understand.
Precap: Shiv calls dadisa and tells her that he is cancelling his holidays and returning with anandi the next day to jaitsar. while anandi’s family is happy, dadisa is concerned of anandi’s reaction when she knows that jagiya has left the haveli. Dadisa calls up ira to send sanchi also for the pagphere ceremony with shiv and anandi tomorrow. Ira and meenu are surprised to find that shiv didnt tell them and dadisa already knows of his change in plans. Getting her chance, sanchi tries to accuse anandi of this situation that she and her family have already started manipulating shiv on their terms. Meenu and ira are tensed.
