Curse of the Sands 17 October 2021: Amar comes to Ananya’s room early morning and bends over her. He asks if she planned something for their wedding. Ananya pushes him away saying this is her plan, she cautions him to come out of his dream world. She will die but won’t marry someone like Amar. Amar smiles and says she is innocent. He wraps her in her own chunri and stuffs the rest of the cloth piece in her mouth. He says he is kidnapping her, and when she is conscious they will be married.
Devika wakes up from this nightmare about Ananya. She was sweating and tensed and asks her husband to go to Banaras. Her friend is in trouble there.
Sunanda looks for Ananya in the room. Shiv comes there and asks how Sunanda doesn’t know where Ananya is. Sunanda insists she doesn’t know and points that Amar is also not here. Shiv asserts that Amar is the only person who can protect Ananya from Sunanda and even the devil inside him. Sunanda thinks Ananya was right that Shiv doesn’t hear anything against Amar.
Ananya opens her eyes in a godown. She was tied to a chair, her mouth taped. Amar comes to drape her in a red chunri. He reminds her the time they were trapped in fire ring together, since then he dreams of themselves taking wedding vows. Had Ananya agreed to marry earlier, they must have been expecting their little Ama-nya. Ananya struggles to spare herself. Amar says this won’t help, except to hurt her feet. He can even hold her in his ears. He tries to pierce Ananya’s nose using a nose ring. She resists as it pains. Amar says he was also in pain when she always rejected him. Today, he balanced everything.
Sunanda follows Shiv outside in the street. She convinces Shiv to trust her once for this matter. Please accept once that it’s not a witch but a mother talking to him, her eyes would only depict care for Ananya.
Amar says Ananya must be thinking Pandit ji isn’t here. How their wedding will take place. He shows a timer saying he had to prepare caution from Shiv. He wants to make their wedding special. He opens the lid of a sindoor box and jumps in excitement, as Ananya will apply this today.
Amar sat with Ananya on the Mandap. Ananya grabs a chance to dial Shiv’s number from Amar’s phone. Before Shiv takes the call, Amar cuts the phone and slaps Ananya. Shiv dials the number again but was tensed as it didn’t connect. He says there were temple bells behind Amar on call. Sunanda says only a single temple is open so late and requests Shiv to accompany her. Amar warns Ananya to play any shrewd, her Shiv won’t come for help.
Devika and Shaan reached Panday Nivas to meet Ananya. The family was tensed. Mishra Ji tells Amma Ji they couldn’t find them anywhere. Amma Ji says Ananya, her mother, Amar, and Shiv are missing. Devika gets tensed regarding her nightmares. Kamal suggests reporting to the police.
Shiv and Sunanda reach the temple in a forest. Sunanda was headed towards hiding. Amar had played a recording of the wedding Mantra. Ananya silently prays that how a liar and betrayer can marry her when God hates liars and wrongdoers.
There, Devika prays for Ananya’s strength.
Shiv also prays for Mahadev’s help. He had vowed to protect Ananya from problems, but it seems she is in life’s biggest problem because of him. A lit stick of Mandap’s fireflies and lands to Shiv’s feet. He and Sunanda head towards the direction of fire. Shiv hears the recording from inside and knocks at the door, calling Ananya. Sunanda asks him to try and break the door. Ananya continues her prayers. Amar holds Ananya in his arms and starts making the rounds.
Sunanda wishes she had her powers today. She asks him to pull his Rudraksha, they need his powers. Shiv wasn’t ready, as he doesn’t need any powers to protect Ananya. Ananya was able to jump off Amar’s arms. Sunanda breaks bangles and cuts the thread of Shiv’s Rudraksha. Shiv breaks the door of the hide-out as a wild devil. Amar was shocked and frightened to see him stare towards himself. Sunanda enters behind them. Shiv holds Amar up in the air by his neck.
