Ganga 24th March 2016 Written Episode
Supriya’s mother supports Niru. This widow stands nowhere. Her husband tells her not to say anything. We have no right to speak in between. It’s their personal matter. Sagar asks everyone if they heard it. He is the same judge who gives makes decisions on every case. He remembers everything about law. Sadly, he ignored a very important chapter of law as per his convenience. Legally, a widow is allowed to remarry. But our judge is declining a widow of the same. He took her responsibility and thought of her as his daughter. He spoke of fulfilling it all. It is easier to tell people about right and wrong when on high pedestal but following them in real life is very difficult. Papa knows it too well as he cannot even look Ganga in the eye today. Amma ji tells him to stop but he refuses. I know you don’t like to hear something against your son. How would you? A mother is like that after all. But why did it happen with me? How did my parents’ hearts turned into stone? They cannot see my wish, my yearning, my love, nothing! You all did a very big favour on me by giving me your family name, but what if I removed your name from my name? Madhvi is in tears.
Amma ji asks Sagar if he will lose his father’s name and them. Listen carefully, neither I nor this society allows anyone to put colours on this widow! Open your eyes. Get this widow out of your life. He is tired of hearing everyone calling Ganga widow. Look at her forehead. You see the vermilion in her forehead? Your society acknowledges a woman based on this vermilion only. I have put it on her forehead. We love each other. Call her a widow the day I die! Amma ji holds her ears. Niru slaps Sagar. Ganga holds Sagar. Niru tells Sagar to leave. Get out of my house right away! Sagar declines. I still have to do one thing. This is the first Holi of both the DIL’s of this house. How can I go without putting colours? He puts colours on Supriya first and wishes her Happy Holi. This is your first Holi in your house. Sorry, all this drama happened today. I promise you I will make it up some day for you. He keeps the plate back next day. Your old traditions / thoughts took away all the colours from Ganga’s life. Today I will fill Ganga colourless life with colours. Flashback shows all the ladies of ashram breaking Ganga’s bangles and removing vermilion off her forehead. He throws all the colours of Holi on Ganga one by one and puts the red colour in her forehead. All these colours are yours too now! All the family members look on shocked and dejected. I give them all to you. Now there will be no law, court or judge who can snatch it from you. Supriya looks happy.
Sagar holds Ganga’s hand and walks up to his father. You must be feeling angry. Your narrow-mindedness came out before everyone. It wouldn’t have happened if you had acted strong / brave. I wont blame you though because you are a coward! You brought a widow home to make name for yourself in the society. You became a coward while fearing the very same society. How will you save people when you yourself got scared of law? I understand everything. These old traditions and customs have held you back. You are not brave enough to take the right decision. You will surely realise it one day that I am right. You will be proud of me that day! He leaves with Ganga.
Everyone in the ashram is dancing while praying. Sagar throws flower petals at them. Everyone stops at once. Sagar wishes them Happy Holi. Sudha says it is good you threw flower petals, not colours or you would have committed a very big sin today otherwise. Widows don’t celebrate Holi. They have nothing to do with colours. He says I have committed one sin in the eyes of my family members. Ganga walks inside. All the ladies are shocked to see her. Sagar tells Sudha to look carefully. Should there be any other colour too? I put all the colours on her and filled her colours with life once again. With the darkest colour is of my love! Every colour fades before it. You know what punishment I got for loving her? I had to break all my ties with my loved ones!
Madhvi says he broke all ties for that Ganga. Amma ji says everything has broken apart. Niru refuses to let his family or house break. It is my mistake. I kept hopes from the wrong son. I always praised Sagar and found faults with Pulkit. Sagar broke all the ties. Pulkit is the elder son of the family. Keeping a family together is the responsibility of the elder son only. I am sure he will support me in this hard time. Pulkit walks in with a lawyer just then.
Madhvi asks him about his whereabouts. We have been waiting for you. You dint come in Holi too. Niru asks about the lawyer. Pulkit says I have to do some formalities. They ask him about it. Pulkit says papa is right. I don’t like begging people for money time and again. I don’t like it. I ask for my right from you today. I too have a right on this house and on Dada ji’s property. I want my share. Everyone is taken aback.
Precap: Sagar tells Sudha he is leaving Ganga here for tonight. We will marry tomorrow in court. Sagar comes next day to take Ganga. She comes wearing a colourful saree. Sagar looks at her mesmerised.
