Gangaa 24 February 2021: Shiv was hurt watching Ganga cry holding the Astia close to her heart. She walks to Shiv and thanks him for this respect, she would always remember this. But he must not try to fill colors in her life, he shouldn’t tie her into a bond against her will. She requests him to let her go.
Shiv tells her to go and do what’s more important right now. Ganga says he has proven today he is good at heart, then why is he doing this with her. Shiv tells her to go and do the rituals first.
At home, Kushal leaves as they watch Ganga making her beddings. Shiv tells Ganga to go to guest room as he has already made the arrangements for her.
Ganga asks if he would enforce her to stay where she must. She joins her hands for him not to worry about her and lay there in the open yard. Shiv leaves. She feel some filling the yard. Shiv comes to Kushal on the other side of yard and burn the coal in a pot to create more smoke. Ganga calls Dai Maa and asks her about the smoke. Shiv cleans the area and walks away. Upstairs, Kushal had understood he created all that smoke not for mosquitoes but for Ganga to move to the room. Jhumki heard this all and runs away as she watches Ganga coming upstairs. Jhumki cheers about getting a chance to do something. She comes to Ganga with water and says Shiv sent it. Ganga denies taking it. Jhumki says Shiv didn’t want her to stay in the yard, he spread the smoke there and sent her upstairs. She says Shiv has brought her home as his bride, now he would win over her within one month. Ganga forbids Jhumki to use her brains, she never wants better for Shiv. She shouldn’t push her against Shiv. Jhumki tells her to come with her near the window, downstairs Shiv was walking with the coal pot. Jhumki says Ganga is quite sensible herself and leaves her thoughtful.
Shiv lay on the floor in the room and miss Ganga on the other side. Ganga opens the door and stood there. Shiv asks what happened. Ganga asks if he really trust this marriage. She asks what he wants from her. Shiv replies he only wants to see Ganga happy and be her side always. He wants to fulfil all of her wish and need. Ganga demands him to do what he is saying. She removes her mangal sooter and says it’s her and Sagar’s mangal sooter. It holds three stones of Shiv’s name. In next seven days if he comes up to all of her given testimonies she would wear this with seven stones but if he fails, he must free her from this bond forever. Shiv holds the mangal sooter accepting the challenge.
The next morning, Shiv was praying in the yard. Ganga takes Sagar’s photo from her suitcase and speaks to it, Ganga belongs to Sagar and no one can snatch her right of being his widow. She takes a white saree and considers it a reality of her life. Shiv prays for the strength to fulfil promise with Sagar. He would fill Ganga’s life with love, colors and happiness. There, Ganga says she would fight the one who tries to fill her life with colors. Today begins the fight between her and Shiv and until she wins, her tears, her pain and this white saree is his.
Everyone in the hall hear Ganga selling her sarees on a stall calling about a sale. Shiv also comes out and was shocked to see Ganga calling customers. Jhumki enjoys the new drama. Savitri curtly says Ganga is wearing such modern saree in this village. Ganga comes to correct Savitri its not wrong to be modern, she always wear such clothed; they put her in their colors only because she didn’t remember anything. She welcomes the ladies as her customers. The ladies gossip that wife of MathaDesh is selling sarees, she doesn’t care about Shiv’s respect.
Riya comes to question Ganga what she is doing. Ganga says she thought a lot and decided to stay simple from now, what she would do with all this jewelry. Savitri comes to shout at Ganga, Ganga clarifies Panchait only ordered her to stay at their house. Ganga comes to tell Shiv she has a self-respect, she can’t take something from anyone and has to earn for herself. Savitri instigates Shiv asking if they can’t provide her food from their house. Ganga says she isn’t related to them, how she should eat at their house. Shiv stops Savitri. Ganga questions if Shiv’s family is disgraced this way, he should shout at her and show her anger. She remembers he had promised to protect her respect. She tells him to break his promise if he is really angry.
Ganga walks towards her stall where women had gathered. Shiv comes to Ganga and says she can do this inside the house as well. Ganga says she would get better business inside, doesn’t he feel shy and smiles. Jhumki comes to ask Ganga about a discount. Ganga teases if she would want to give away alms, she would give it to Jhumki for free and smiles as Jhumki curtly leaves.
Kushal comes inside to Shiv and complains about Ganga. Shiv makes Kushal sit beside him and tells him not to worry. He wonders why Shiv isn’t angry about it, how can he be so calm. Shiv says no one can reach the solution when angry. He thinks for a while and asks for Kushal’s help, then shares an idea with Kushal. Kushal appreciates Shiv’s idea.
Shiv walks outside to see hot business on Ganga’s stall. He makes way for himself and appreciates Ganga for such a business initiative. The things that aren’t being used are better sold, he only wish she can do this work inside the house. He speaks to the customers to go to the yard, he will arrange for all their comforts inside. Ganga wasn’t ready to go inside, but customers give consent about inside. Kushal and Shiv take everyone inside. A lady appreciates Shiv’s steps to prevent them from scorching heat. Shiv tells Ganga a good businessman always look for comfort of their clients. They hold the stall inside. Ganga was left confused.
Ganga comes inside where Shiv was entertaining the customers. He comes to Ganga and says it’s his duty to see no one points a finger towards him, he will fulfil it anyway and calls her inside. Jhumki comes to Ganga and warns Shiv would now be angry at her, she tells Ganga to inform her if she needs some help. Ganga says she doesn’t want any bad for Shiv, she only wants Shiv to begin hating her.
Poorab tells Savitri to shoot him and herself. He questions why Savitri stopped Ganga into her home. Savitri was worried they must have to leave the village otherwise. She assures Poorab to take him back home, he should only make place in Shiv’s heart for himself. She cheerfully tells Poorab that Ganga is after getting Shiv disgrace.
Shiv speaks to Parvati’s photo and wonders how he can break the promise he gave to Sagar. A flower fell off Parvati’s photo. Ganga comes to Shiv and hands her earning to him. Panchait told her to stay in his house for a month, she won’t stay here for free. She would get him more money till evening today. Shiv says if Ganga has to work she can do it in Math, it would be his help as well and he would give her as much salary as she wants. Ganga says she never wished someone to be her support, she can stand on her own feet. Shiv thinks it’s necessary for him to stay with Ganga right now.
Ganga walks to a jeweler in the market and asks him for work. The jeweler says he doesn’t need someone for help. Shiv arrives at the market in his jeep and watches Ganga looking for work. She was standing with an old man for help and ready to take any money he offered. The old man watched Shiv standing behind her and promises to get her any work if needed in future. Ganga turns to see Shiv and says she now understands it’s because of him she doesn’t get work. Everyone is afraid he would be angry if they give her some work. She tells him to clarify to anyone he won’t be angry if they give her some work. Shiv asks if she wants a reference, and was ready to help her with any shop. Ganga turns to leave enraged. Shiv requests her to sit in the car, finding work by foot would take much time, she has to make payment to him as well. He stops Ganga and tells her to cover her head in such scorching heat. Ganga initially covers her head, thinking it would be a favor to Shiv she removes it. Shiv brings water to her, she empties the water bottle and move on. Shiv feels helpless as she was really stubborn.
Ganga comes to sight and asks for help in construction work. The manager says its government work on daily wage. Shiv had reached the site. Ganga goes to help with the work. The manager comes asking what she is doing. Ganga requests him to let her work. She comes to Shiv boasting she got work for herself. The workers there wonder what’s the need for MathaDesh wife to work on sites. Ganga thinks Shiv must be angry at her now and his promise would break. Shiv watches Ganga’s pally stuck with the wires, it unwinds around her after being stuck with the wire. Shiv comes to hug Ganga. She tries to withdraw herself but he covers her cautiously, saving her grace. Ganga looks around watching everyone stare at them. He tells her to go.
