that they should get table fans too, instead of only ceiling ones. he asks her not to worry, as its all taken care of. after he leaves, prabha thinks that he has no clue that the fan brought on rent shall cause such havoc in the family. Meanwhile, she eyes supriya serving lassi drinks to the guests to take off the heat, and suddenly gets an idea. she comes to her, and asks whats she doing, as in good and pious work, white is unlucky, just like the widow status of ganga and if ganga sees, she wouldnt feel nice, as she would be remembered of her widow status earlier. they all start thinking on it, and people start gossiping about widow remarriage. ammaji and the family members are tensed that prabha unnecessarily brought it up. ammaji finally speaks up saying that she shall tell why she chose ganga for her sagar. she confronts them all, and then eyes prabhja curtly. she says that she changed her thinking, with changing times, and they should too. she says that its true widow remarriage hasnt happened, but only because the society doesnt want it, and they all reiterate ganga is a widow, but no one talks about her grandson being widow. she also reprimands prabha to say that white doesnt mean ominous, but it also represents sacrifice and the patience, that a widow has, and that she can change the tide of times. prabha and the guests are silenced too. she then takes a lassi glass and finishes it, gulping it down, while all watch shocked. she then calls maharaj and supriya to serve lassi to everyone. the guests reprimand her for insulting the rites and rituals. madhvi tries to intervene, but is stopped by her husband, to let ammaji speak up. ammaji says that she didnt sacrifice anything, but her orthodox beliefs, which she shed. her son comes and tells her that its good that she has now realised. ammaji then turns to the guests and asks whether they shall bless her son and bride or not.
Meanwhile, Ganga is dressing in her room, when she gets an insistent knock on the door, and a girl’s voice, asking her to hurriedly come down, and open up the door. ganga asks her to wait but the girl outside gets impatient. she continues to knock and holler for the door to be opened. as ganga opens the door, sagar, draped in dupatta hurriedly gets in, and then eyes her teasingly, while she shyly says that they have been asked not to be alone. she asks him to go, as if anyone sees, they shall be scolded, but he unabashed continues to progress towards her, while she retreats reflexively, as he has no concerns of being seen or caught. he grabs her, and then pins her against the wall, while she is shy and nervous. supriya comes in and they both compose themselves. she is amused, and asks what happened. sagar asks ganga not to say anything. but ganga blurts that she asked him to stop but he didnt. he vehemently protests, but supriya turns his ears, and wrenches them, asking him not to try and be oversmart. he asks her to believe him, and not ganga. surpriya says that she shall take him to ammaji, and he starts apologiisng profusely. supriya says that she has a condition. he asks what. she asks ganga to tell what to do, as this is a golden oppurtunity. supriya tells sagar that he shall have to be ganga’s slave always and listen to everything she says. he eyes her romantically, and then kneels in front of her, and accepts it, while ganga is overwhelmed. supriya is amused. he says that he shall be her slave for eternity, and do and say whatever she asks him to, and shall forever be hers. Supriya blesses them both. Just then, prabha comes that way, and finds them like this. he gets up instanrtly. she asks them what are they doing here as they are being called down. they hurriedly rush down.

Then the haldi ceremony starts, as ganga and sagar are made to sit together. ammaji starts with the ritual and then others follow. they all bless the happy couple. Prabha too comes and completes the rituals. madhvi reminds her of the waters. she goes there and sends maharaj away to attend to the kitchen. While noone is watching, prabha stealthily throws a live wire in the water area. Rudra and ragini too perform the ritual, while prabha thinks that they can be happy all they want, but this shall be their last bath as the minute, sagar puts his hand in the water, he shall be electrocuted, and that shall mark the end of sagar and ganga’s love story. The screen freezes on ganga and sagar’s happy faces.
