This is Fate 25 October 2021: Ramona tells Mahira she must make sure she is not thrown out of Luthra’s house anymore, nor she should return to her in tears, instead this time Preeta must cry. She will make Preeta suffer like Gayatri. Mahira recognizes her as dad’s ex-wife. Ramona corrects wife, she made her ex. Mahira’s dad was married to Gayatri, she met him in a later stage of life and fall in love with him instantly. She got to know he was married, and his heart resided with Gayatri.
Ramona habitually takes what she wants, by hook or by crook. She went to any extent to throw Gayatri from his dad’s life. Now, Gayatri must be suffering from her old parents. It was not Gayatri’s story, it was hers (Ramoona’s). Mahira remembers that dad left Gayatri because… Ramona corrects it was all lie. She had presented it to Mahira’s dad as truth. She wanted her dad, and she did anything to get him. She believes Mahira must also do something like this. Mahira says Ramoona’s story is simple because Gayatri was simple. Ramona sits with Mahira and says it is never easy to take a husband away from any wife. Mahira must follow her footprints and Karan will be hers. Mahira says she wants to get Karan. That Preeta challenged her that she is and will always be a friend only. Ramona suggests Mahira keep a Karwachot fast for Karan tomorrow, and with full heart and zeal. Mahira agrees.
At home, Dadi agrees to all five conditions of Rakhi and tells her to take a rest. Dadi repeats all conditions, firstly she will handle all matters of Karwachot. Secondly, she will make sure she performs all rituals of Preeta’s first Karwachot. Thirdly, she must behave well with Preeta. She says it is difficult, but she will make sure Preeta feels she loves Preeta even more than Rakhi. Fourthly, she won’t snatch Preeta’s rights in any case and privilege Mahira. Lastly, she will make the Karwachot memorable for all daughter-in-laws of Luthra house. She now takes Rakhi’s promise to take rest and sleep.
Preeta was in her room setting dresses. She remembers it is her second Karwachot tomorrow. She had done this fast once earlier as well and recalls Karan helped her break her fast. She remembers a lady in the temple advised her to fast for her husband, this fast increases the age of relationships. Preeta was satisfied that this time she will be fasting in her own house.
Sarla sat upset in her house. She discusses with Janki that it is Karwachot tomorrow. Shrishti teases that Janki will not fast. Janki jokes that Jaya Bachan should fast for her husband, she can obviously not fast for Amitabh. Sarla was irritated and worries about Preeta’s Karwachot. Shrishti makes a video call to Preeta. Sarla speaks to Preeta that it is her first Karwachot, no matter what goes on in her house and family, she must fast for Karan at any cost. She tells Preeta every newly-wed must fast in the name of Goddess Garwa, who will spread love, affection, and understanding in her relationship. Sarla says Rakhi will gift her Sargi early morning and bless her for a healthy relationship with her husband. Preeta discusses with Sarla that Karan does nothing to be worthy of her fast. Karan comes to the room then. Preeta complains that Karan hadn’t even inquired her about her injured forehead on the day of the reception. Karan snatches the phone from Preeta and complains to Sarla. He says he inquired Preeta where she had been on the day of reception, but she didn’t tell; he was irritated and thought he noticed the injury but did not console. Preeta’s family agrees with Karan that no one feels pity for anyone when angry. Preeta was annoyed and cuts the call.
Shrishti wonders if they love because of fights or fight because they love each other. Janki says the second one is appropriate. Sarla prays for an increase in their love.
Karan tells Preeta she is jealous whenever someone is on his side. Preeta denies. Karan asks why she cut the call. Preeta says she is angry because her family took his side. Karan argues it was jealousy, not anger. Preeta says alright, it’s good that her family sides him. Her family knows the importance of relations. Sarla knew he is their son-in-law and Shrishti’s brother-in-law. Karan makes Preeta sit and says he is always right. Preeta stops the argument. Karan continues that she got a lot of egos, no matter she says this to him. Preeta asks him to clarify what he has to say, he must be confident to stand eye to eye and say what’s in his heart. She hates this habit. Karan laughs that Preeta does not hate him, she actually loves him; that is why she is fasting for him. Preeta says every wife fasts for her husband. Karan says that according to Dadi wives fast for their husband’s life so they can live with their husbands for longer.
Preeta also wants so. Preeta clears this is not the case. Karan was offended and says he hates people who do not reply to his questions. Preeta asks what his question is. Karan says Preeta did not tell him how she was injured. Preeta says alright, he cares then. Karan accepts that he cares. Preeta lies that she felt drowsy. Karan catches her lie. Preeta says she felt drowsy, fell, and got injured. Karan says Preeta is injured each day in her heart, whenever Mahira comes close. Preeta denies feeling jealous of Mahira.
Karan says Mahira cares for him, loves him as well, and might fast for him as well. Preeta was annoyed and says Mahira might do it. Karwachot is a ritual and only wives keep the fast, it does not matter if everyone in the world fasts. Karan pulls Preeta closer, asking if she doesn’t care someone gets this close to him. She replies no. He pulls her closer, she replies no. He now hugs Preeta. Preeta hugs Karan back, to his relief. When they part, Preeta says she does not care if Mahira is fast for him or not. She turns to give medicine to Rakhi.
