Episode starts with…
Its 3pm, RS Mansion,
All were seated at the dining table. That anonymous person who was staring at Riddhima few minutes back now started stalking her and was once again secretly staring at her from distance.
Sejal & Siya were busy licking their fingers, while others were laughing at their childishness.
Uma: Riddhima beta, are you so calm all the time?
Sejal: Aunty don’t underestimate her. She’s calm as she is with unknown people or else, she’s much crazier, naughty, lively and more childish than you can think. Isn’t it dad and mom?
Her parents gave a smile while Riddhima hit Sejal.
Sejal: Auch!!! Saw Aunty… (Laughing)
Dadi: Riddhima, beta what does your parents do?
This question made Sejal and her parents’ eye Riddhima who was almost broke as she didn’t have answer for that. She was thinking what would she tell that’s she lost her family many years back in an unfaithful accident on that night where unluckily she escaped? Or how would she tell that she’s an orphan who doesn’t know what and how having a family meant? She was lost in such thoughts when she could sense tears rolling down her eyes. Sejal thought if only she told them before of Riddhima’s family that this question wouldn’t have popped out and Riddhima wouldn’t have been in this state. By this time everyone was waiting for Riddhima’s reply and were staring at her. Riddhima could sense those stares and she started feeling uncomfortable and was staring at her plate and didn’t lift her head. Rudra and Chanchal were observing everything and he couldn’t see Riddhima in this state and said
Rudra: Maa, her parents are in front of you.
Riddhima suddenly looked up with moist eyes when Rudra and Chanchal stared at her assuring that she has their back. Sejal could sense Riddhima’s state and hugged her tight confusing the Rai Singhania family. They had a blank look,
Sejal: Dadi, Riddhima is my sister and my parent’s daughter. Isn’t it Riddhima?
Riddhima knew they always regarded her their daughter and the way he regarded themselves as her parents shook her and was emotional.
Dadi: Sorry beta we didn’t knew that you are…
Before dadi couldn’t complete the sentence, Chanchal spoke
Chanchal: That she’s our daughter right Maa!! (signing dadi by nodding her head in disapproval of using the word Orphan)
Dadi and others understood Chanchal’s sign and made sure they didn’t utter that word. All this while Riddhima was hugging Sejal and was weeping. Suddenly she felt a pat on her head to see Dadi standing near her looking at her lovingly. Riddhima felt that she’s around unknown persons and weeping such in her client’s place was unprofessional so she stood and wiping her tears she said
Riddhima: Sorry Ma’am, I was emotional. I apologise. There’s lot to work on. It was wonderful meeting you all and I assure that your event will be as successful as you want to. Now it’s time for me to take your leave.
Dadi: I trust you fully. I wanted to ask you one thing will you do?
Riddhima: Sure ma’am.
Dadi: Can you call me dadi and not Ma’am. Why do you consider that only Rudra, Chanchal are your parents and Sejal as your sister? Can’t we be a part of your world? Can’t we be your family?
This statement was a shock to Riddhima and she stood their motionless, while she gave a look at others, everyone was smiling at her. This made her recollect the memories she shared with her grandmother and her family. She didn’t understand what to say or how to react so she turned towards Rudra who signalled her to proceed…. With tears rolling down her cheeks she with heavy heart ready to melt, she took a step further and
Riddhima: D…Dadi (tears rolling)
Rudra, Chanchal and Sejal were the happiest faces in the room as they know what Riddhima went through and after how many years she finally got another family and many more relations though not blood. They were crying happy tears while hearing how Riddhima took her name dadi was utter happy and hugged her which was reciprocated by Riddhima. All turned emotional while Sejal came and hugged dadi and Riddhima tight.
Riddhima: Thank you dadi. (finally smiling)
Dadi: God bless you beta. So now its finalized, we have an addition to our family from today. Isn’t it?
(Everyone on Unison): Yesss (almost shouting).
Dadi: From now I have another Granddaughter and I think out of all the grandchildren I have only 2 are worthy children (trying to pull others to make the situation light as it was so emotional)
Ishani, Siya and Sejal: That’s not fair Dadi. You got another granddaughter doesn’t mean you’ll call us not worthy. We all are upset now.
Dadi: How did you three know that it’s you about whom I was speaking? I didn’t take your names (hahaha)
Siya: you are mean dadi! But acha one grandchild about whom you are talking is Riddhima so who’s the other?
Ishani & Sejal: (Hitting Siya on her head) Obviously Vansh Bhai.
Everyone laughed making the situation into a happy one.
It’s 3:30pm, RS Mansion,
Riddhima and Sejal left to work on other arrangements, while Ishani went to her boutique accompanied by Siya. Rudra, Chanchal, Dadi, Uma, Anupriya and Amar were sitting in the living room when
Anupriya: Chanchal, but what happened with Riddhima’s parents?
Chanchal and Rudra told all that happened with her family years back. Listening to all that everyone understood why Riddhima broke when asked about her parents. They felt sorry for refreshing those memories in her heart.
