Age is Just a Number 25 August 2020: Bhoomi begins to cry thinking that Sahil’s bone marrow didn’t match Ved’s. Vaidika tells Bhoomi that there is another chance, another child from same parents may save Ved’s life. Bhoomi asks if Vaidika and Sahil’s another chance… she pushes Vaidika away out of shock and questions how they can fall to such an extent. She calls Vaidika a cunning lady who use it a trick and steal Sahil and Ved from her. She shouts that Vaidika wish to sleep with Sahil now.
Vaidika shuts her up and says it’s the doctor who gave this idea, they are clear on the stance that they want to treat Ved. She is Ved’s mother, she spoke to doctor about the next chance if Sahil’s bone marrow doesn’t match. She is also a woman and understands all this. The doctor reach home and accepts giving this idea. This would already take a nine months’ time already and its better Ved is treated soon. Gauri convince Bhoomi that its important for Ved’s life, and in this age marital ties are already paid little attention. The doctor warns that Ved might not survive two to three years if untreated.
Bhoomi runs to the room, takes a fruit knife and decides to finish herself up. Sahil and Vaidika break into the room. Bhoomi shouts at Vaidika for ruining her life, she must get away of her life. She calls herself unlucky that she is unable to say a no to all this too. She wants to save her son’s life as well. Sahil convince Bhoomi to be strong. Bhoomi claims that she isn’t strong enough, no woman in the world can agree to this thing. Isn’t she his wife? Vaidika runs out of the room. Sahil calms Bhoomi down, requests her to sit and listen to him.
In the room, Nani was worried for Vaidika’s life in all this procedure. Vaidika wasn’t ready to discuss anything. She left the whole procedure over the doctor. Ved runs to the room with a drawing of Vaidika and himself. He says whenever he is away and Vaidika miss him, she can at least watch the drawing. Vaidika breaks into a cry, then plays with Ved. Nani plays for Vaidika silently.
In the room, Deepak tells Gauri such in the importance of real parents, if she still wants to leave him and Sadika? Gauri says their situations are different from Sahil and Vaidika’s, and he dare not think anything false about Sadika. Deepak was revengous over Gauri for gaining such a courage. He attempts to molest Gauri but she punches Deepak and runs out of the room.
At night, Bari Amma sat in Bhoomi’s room and convince Bhoomi that they are only concerned about Ved’s treatment. Sahil comes at the door of the room and hear the conversation inside. Bari Amma says she can’t also bear any intimacy between Sahil and Vaidika, and will speak to doctor to repeat the artificial procedure for child.
Sahil, Bhoomi and Vaidika cried separately the whole night.
The next morning, Bari Amma was angry over the doctor as the artificial insemination wasn’t possible. The doctor says it’s a difficult and complicated procedure, there are a lot of abnormalities observed in such children and here they are concerned about Ved’s life. The doctor says there might be a problem in a pregnancy at such an age. Bhoomi and Bari Amma insisted that they were ready to pay any amount of money. The doctor asks them to decide as it’s a personal matter. Sahil announces that he will do anything for Ved, he is ready to give birth to a normal child with the consent of Vaidika herself only. Bhoomi was shocked to hear this and pressurize Vaidika to disagree on this. Bari Amma questions Vaidika what’s she now thinking. Gauri wonders why Vaidika must put her life at stake when there is another way. Sahil tells Vaidika to take a decision only by herself, without anyone else’s pressure. They all want to stop them because of their limited mentality but they as parents must think for Ved. Vaidika was only confused.
Prachi asks Sahil if he has lost his mind. He is a married man. Sahil says he has now got a way, and can’t put Vaidika’s life at stake. Gauri decides to be with Sahil.
Puneesh brings a bag of money for the doctor and appreciates his choice of words. Everyone is convinced that Vaidika’s life is at stake. The doctor says though they suggest women of Vaidika’s age to go for artificial insemination. Puneesh was relieved that the game is going to be interesting, before Vaidika bears a child she and Sahil would be ruined, only once she is ready to sleep with Sahil.
Vaidika sat on the floor of her room crying about Ved, Bhoomi’s accusations and doctor’s suggestion. She wonders what she must do, Ved is her child and it’s her right to do something for his life. She can sacrifice her life to save Ved. A shadow appears in front of Vaidika and suggests her to be selfish, at least when it’s about life and death. The shadow asks if she ever wondered what will happen to her and Sahil when they have got intimate. Bhoomi was about to suicide, how they will compel her. Does she even realize why Sahil wants this, because there is still love in his heart for him? He controls his love now, but he won’t later be able to control his love. She must think well that she won’t be saved with over whelming love of Sahil. Vaidika was confused, and indecisive. She gets a flash of future, where Ved was 10 years old.
Later, Vaidika stood in the hall and announce her decision. She was ready to sleep with Sahil in order to save Ved’s life. Everyone in the family was shocked at the decision. Nani calls Vaidika mindless. If she has a relation with Vaidika? To what extent can she go for Ved? Sahil is a male, but the world would never accept this. She tells Vaidika to first fill her hairline with sindoor, else this Bari Amma would be the first one to announce in this world that Vaidika ruined her grace and slept with Sahil.
Bari Amma was about to accuse Vaidika again but Sahil interferes. Nani says it’s about her own son and grandchild, her family is silent. She goes to the temple and brings sindoor box to Sahil, demands Sahil to marry Vaidika then bear a child. Vaidika asks what kind of a drama is this. Would she trade for her son’s life, and after ruining her sister’s life? Nani argues that Bari Amma, Prachi, Puneesh or Bhoomi never thought about Vaidika. Vaidika was decisive and announces she has taken her decision. Nani questions if Vaidika realizes the consequences of sleeping with Sahil without a relation? Vaidika replies she is ready because this will save her Ved’s life. She cares for nothing else.
Bhoomi was packing her bags. Bari Amma comes to stop her. Bhoomi replies she can’t watch Vaidika sleep with her husband. Bari Amma suggests Bari Amma to do something that gains her respect in eyes of Sahil like Vaidika did.
Manish and Gauri were together. Manish was happy that Gauri had taken the decision. He assures Gauri that soon Deepak would be out of her life. Deepak heard the conversation from a corner and says he won’t leave his wife so easily. He calls some goons. Deepak tells Gauri’s condition and dress color to them. He thinks to take the news to women socialists now, he will publish Gauri’s extramarital affair news and they will blacken Gauri’s face now.
Sahil brings Bhoomi to the temple and asks if she really meant what she just said. Bhoomi says she might feel pain, but right now she is thinking about Ved’s life only. She stands with Sahil and allows him to make baby with Vaidika normally. Sahil was thankful to Bhoomi. When he has left, Bari Amma sends Bhoomi to take her next decision. She was sure Sahil would agree to her demand.
Sahil had brought Vaidika to a temple. Sahil says he understands how difficult this all is for Vaidika. He wants to make this all easy for Vaidika. She is ready to go against her rules, only a mother can do this. God put them in this strange situation. He holds Vaidika’s hand and proposes Vaidika for marriage. He wish to connect their souls. This truth will remain between the two of them, but at least their relation would be legitimate in the eyes of God. He held the bottle of sindoor and asks if she will marry him?
