Gangaa 23 February 2021 update: Everyone stood shattered at the last rituals of Sagar. Shiv was upset and stood outside, while Ganga only sat on the floor broken. He asks Ganga to go inside as it’s really late. Ganga didn’t respond. Shiv felt pity over her, then goes to sit with the wall.
The next morning, ladies called Ganga curse. Madhvi was also crying nearby. The ladies call Shiv lucky that she wasn’t married to Shiv. Kushal stops Shiv from taking any action, he has no right over Ganga and the ladies would say false words and bring disgrace to Ganga if he interferes. Madhvi comes to take a leave from Savitri, Shiv and Kushal. Ganga stops her ready to come with her. Madhvi pushes Ganga away aggressively and says the ladies are right in whatever they say, she is cursed and destroyed her whole family. Niru and Sagar both left the world because of Ganga. She now has no relation with their family. She recalls Sagar wanted Ganga to marry Shiv as his last wish. He had taken Shiv’s promise in this regard as well. Madhvi thinks she must do this for her Sagar’s promise, she has hurt Ganga but for Ganga’s happiness. She looks towards Shiv and leaves.
Savitri nods at the widow ladies who remove sindoor off Ganga’s hairline. They were removing her bangles. Shiv asks what this all is about a s the ladies pushed Ganga’s hands over a stone to break her bangles. Savitri says Ganga is a widow now, she must stay away from all these jewels and makeup. Shiv was hurt recalling Ganga’s love for the bangles he had gifted her. He stops the ladies, then beats his hand for it to bleed refilling Ganga’s hairline with his blood. He announces Ganga would live as his wife. Kushal was happy.
Savitri asks Shiv if this is a game, even Sagar’s mother left her as she is cursed widow. He must not change the norms. Ganga must stay in white only, till death. Shiv doesn’t let Savitri remove the sindoor mark off Ganga’s forehead and says this is wrong for her to remove this. Ganga remembers all the events in past few days. Shiv gets a call from inspector and assures to reach there. He informs inspector has arrested someone in the matter. Savitri wish Pratab has completed her work. Ganga announces she doesn’t accept this wedding. The widow questions Savitri about varied rules for her family and the villagers. Savitri thinks Sagar has left Ganga in a huge trouble.
Shiv was shocked to see Pratab sitting in the police station. He was enraged and says he could never dream of his younger brother being a murderer and questions why Pratab shot Sagar. He slaps Pratab hard. The inspector comes to tell Shiv Pratab caught the boy who shot Sagar and robbed them. Shiv accepts his mistake for suspecting Pratab. Pratab smirks its really easy to bully Shiv and recalls giving a huge amount of money to the man for accepting the charge over him. Shiv grabs the collar of the man, Pratab and inspector stops Shiv.
Outside the police station, Pratab apologizes Shiv and says he really respects Shiv. Brothers have arguments but he cares for his family a lot. He realizes he had strayed the right path, but he wants to regain the love of his brother. He made a false will because Shiv didn’t trust him. he hands Shiv a shoe to hit him.
The villager men come to show others the woman Ganga. They protest in front of Savitri they won’t leave without an answer about the injustice.
Ganga turns to Shiv and clarifies she would leave this house after a month. Shiv stops Riya from going behind her, he requests his family not to force Ganga. They hear a clatter in the room and stops his family from going there. Ganga throws her item, bangles and other luggage off the cup board and says these doesn’t belong to her. Shiv picks her favorite bangles from the floor and asks what she lost. Ganga turns around and asks him for a white saree. She comes to him and clarifies she wants to be Sagar’s widow, how can he snatch this right. Shiv recalls Sagar’s last wish that Ganga always be a bride. He tells Ganga she is the daughter in law of this house, it’s difficult for her to forget whatever happened but they can begin new relations. Ganga interrupts saying she doesn’t wish to join any new relation. She denies staying in the room and brings her bag outside, she announces she would stay in this yard for one month. She is doing whatever she considers right. She cries sitting there on the floor.
In the evening, Shiv thinks everything has changed. He smiles recalling his times with Ganga. Kushal comes to speak to Shiv that Ganga considers him as a culprit of Sagar. He must share with Ganga about Sagar’s promise. Shiv forbids Kushal to share this with Ganga. Kushal says she would always hold him culprit. Shiv says Ganga has a self-respect, she would be burdenize and broken if she finds about Sagar’s promise. Shiv says he didn’t understand himself as much as he understands Ganga. It is time that would heal Ganga’s wounds, he will try to bring her back to life. Kushal wonders till when he would bear her anger, Shiv says until she makes up with him.
Ganga cries thinking about her childhood with Sagar. Shiv sat in the other room. Dai Maa brings food for Ganga and requests her to eat a little. Ganga cries denying to eat. Dai Maa places the foot plate and leave. Shiv sat with Ganga’s bangles in hand. Ganga thinks about Sagar and cries.
Kushal comes to Shiv to inform about all the arrangements for tomorrow. He asks Shiv to come home, but Shiv was still in Math. Shiv wish what he wants to do tomorrow must happen well. Shiv returns home to find Ganga sleeping with her head on grain bags. He covers her with a shawl.
Ganga wakes up the next morning and finds herself covered in the shawl. She tells Dai Maa to take the tea. Dai Maa says Shiv made this tea for her, and says it’s for her better. Shiv comes in with the bucket of water. Ganga comes to forbid him bring this tea and biscuit for her again, she doesn’t accept this. It suffocates her that he filled her hairline with sindoor. She asks why he went against her will if he really cared for her. Shiv brings the plate of tea and biscuit for Ganga and requests her to eat this, later they need to go somewhere as well. Ganga throw the plate on floor denying to go with him. Shiv holds her hand and drags her to the car, and tells Dai Maa to get some fruits to the car. She would eat if she is hungry on the way. He carries Ganga to the car in spite of her resistance and ties her hands. Riya and Kushal comes to inform Shiv its done, and hurries inside. Jhumki and Savitri were skeptic.
Shiv brings Ganga to a temple and hands her a bag. Ganga opens the bag to find Sagar’s astia. She cries holding the pot.
