Ganga 25th November 2015 Written Episode
Madhvi is making preps for the puja. Maharaj ji asks her if Amma ji will come to puja to bless them all. Madhvi nods. She always blesses us all in the puja every year. She will do it this year too. She looks sceptical though.
Shanta Dadi fills Amma ji’s ears against Madhvi. You take blessings from elders. Elders don’t go to youngsters to give their blessings. Amma ji is in thoughts. Mehri comes to ask for money on the occasion of Diwali. Amma ji stares at her.
Mehri comes in the hall muttering something. Madhvi asks her what happened. Mehri regrets asking Amma ji for money. I am poor but it doesn’t mean someone will scold us or ill treat us. She could have refused but why did she have to curse? You only can handle it. I wouldn’t have handled it if I was in your place. AMma ji is elder. We all respect her but it doesn’t mean anyone will say anything! She leaves. Maharaj ji wonders what made Mehri so upset. What would have Amma ji said to her? He goes.
Shanta Dadi tells Madhvi that Kanta was wrong to curse Mehri. I feel bad. Madhvi says I thought Amma ji was upset only with me. Shanta Dadi affirms. Kanta got angrier the moment she got to know Mehri came here on your insistence. She gets angry hearing your name. Madhvi goes from there. Shanta Dadi thinks that she will ruin the peace of this house real soon.
Ratan does puja at his house. Prabha paces in her room. She calls Ginny. I was thinking to come to your house to wish you Diwali. Ginny happily agrees. My friends are already here. Come over. We will all have fun together.
Ratan offers Prasad to Prabha but she declines. He asks her to come with him to Madhvi’s house but she declines. He leaves with Yash sensing her foul mood. Prabha wears her new jewellery as soon as he leaves. He is trying to make us a beggar like himself. He always takes us to Madhvi’s house on every occasion. We have become the guards of that house. He cannot do anything himself and also wont let us do anything on our wish.
Ganga says Shanta Dadi is too clever. Sagar too had thought so. She is so bad. I thought she would help us in hiding Jalebi Prasad. Ganga cannot understand how someone can be so bad. They are readying some project. Jalebi Prasad comes there. He is all entangled in the ribbons. They both free him together. Ganga remarks that together they will have to bring out Shanta Dadi’s truth before Amma ji and Madhvi. Sagar nods. We cannot speak up though. Jalebi Prasad will be thrown out of the house then. They feel stuck.
Madhvi asks Maharaj ji to call everyone downstairs for the puja. She is going to call Amma ji when Shanta Dadi stops her. Kanta is so angry with you. She might take out her anger on the kids. She might say something wrong to them. Madhvi denies. Amma ji might be upset with me but she loves her son and grandsons a lot. She will surely come. Shanta Dadi stops her again. She will do it till her grandsons remain her grandsons. She will explode the day they become their mother’s sons. I know her very well. I don’t like speaking against my sister but this is the truth. I don’t know how you tolerate so much. Everyone should have a DIL like you. Kanta is really lucky. I would suggest you to send Niru and the kids to talk to Kanta. You should not go at all. I will also try to talk to her. She leaves. Niru asks Madhvi about Amma ji.
Prabha comes to Ginny’s house. She looks at the beautifully decorated house. Ginny wishes her Happy Diwali. She compliments Prabha. You look perfect today. She also asks Prabha if she will do the payment on time. Prabha agrees. Ginny trusts her. She asks about Yash and Ratan. Prabha says they have gone to Madhvi Didi’s house. Ginny asks her why she dint go there. They are your family. I find it weird and wrong. Ginny’s friends join them so Prabha is saved. They all compliment her jewellery. They all go for puja.
Shanta Dadi notices Amma ji sitting alone in a corner. This is the right time. She asks AMma ji if she wont come for the puja. Amma ji nods. I was going only. She gets up to go when Shanta Dadi blocks her way. You have a big heart. I wouldn’t have gone if I was in your place. The elders have to show their authority. I would say that you shouldn’t come out till Madhvi comes here and says sorry to you. is it smartness to risk everything for your love? This is the time for you to show them your value or no one will respect you. Amma ji says you are right. Now I will only go when Madhvi will come to call me. Shanta Dadi very smartly leaves the decision on her. I am a guest after all. I cannot say anything in your family matters. Amma ji thinks that her sister is right. I should wait and watch if my DIL respects me or not. No puja has happened in the house without me till date. I will see what happens today.
Ginny does aarti at her home. Prabha and all her friends light the diyas next. They all sit down to play cards later. Ginny’s friends want to put money on cards. Prabha initially disagrees but then agrees in the end. She puts Rs. 100. Ginny’s friends find it too low. It should be atleast Rs. 1000. We have a standard after all. Prabha takes it on her ego. She puts a Rs. 1000 note.
Madhvi asks Niru and the kids to go and make AMma ji agree. She always listens to you. Niru wants her to come along. She thinks of Shanta Dadi’s words. I cannot come. She might not come then. She is upset with me. Whatever happened happened between us. I don’t want my kids to miss her blessings. You all should go and make her agree. Niru leaves. Madhvi asks Sagar to go too. Sagar and Ganga go after Niru.
Niru, Sagar and Ganga request Amma ji to come. We will only start puja when you will join us. Amma ji is about to agree when her sister’s words ring in her ear. Niru tells the kids to come. Amma ji wont come with us. He leaves. Shanta Dadi enters just then. She sends the kids outside. I will talk to Kanta. Sagar and Ganga reluctantly leave. Outside, Ganga understands that Shanta Didi is behind it. She only filled AMma ji’s ears against Bahu ji.
Amma ji feels bad that her DIL is so arrogant. She dint come to request me. Shanta Dadi acts all innocent. I am an outsider. It will be wrong if I say anything in your family matter. Amma ji feels hurt. Shanta Dadi smiles seeing her condition.
Madhvi is shocked to know that Amma ji refused to come out. Niru cannot understand why his mother is so angry. The kids are all sad. I wont let them get sad on this auspicious day because of Amma ji’s anger. He asks pundit ji to start the puja. Ganga feels bad. How will we do puja without Amma ji? Sagar remarks that this has never happened before. Madhvi feels bad. She hates me so much that she wont come in the puja to bless her kids? Shanta Dadi says Niru is right. We should do the puja. What if Kanta isn’t here? Shanta is here. I will sit in the puja. I am the elder of the house after all. She asks Sagar and everyone to come. Ganga thinks that AMma ji’s sister is doing everything wrong. Niru, Madhvi and Maharaj ji sit down for the puja along with Shanta Dadi. Niru asks the kids to sit too. they comply but feel bad. Shanta Dadi asks Sagar if he does not want to do puja. Sagar is about to retort when Ganga reminds him of their helplessness. I too am angry but we cannot say anything or Shanta Dadi will tell everyone about Jalebi Prasad. If I dint have to worry about him then I would have never listened to Shanta Dadi. Sagar thinks of the tensions in the house that have surfaced in the house because of Shanta Dadi. Ganga vows not to leave Shanta Dadi the day she gets a chance.
Pundit ji asks Niru to call Amma ji. It is good if the elders of the house do a few rituals of the puja. Niru tells him to let Shanta Massi do it. She acts all modest and politely denies. Niru tells Madhvi that even he is feeling bad. Amma ji is not sitting with us in the puja on such a big occasion. She should think of this. she is the elder of the house. We had gone to make her agree. He asks pundit ji to let Shanta Massi do it. Shanta Dadi does the rituals. Pundit ji asks her to do aarti too as she is the elder of the house. Ganga knows Shanta Dadi is happy to create fights between everyone. Everything is happening as per her wish only!
Precap: Amma ji hears the sounds that Jalebi Prasad makes. She is shocked to find a puppy in her room.
