Gangaa 16 January 2020: Shiv helps Ganga with the hook and then starts leaving. Ganga thanks him.
Gangaa update Thursday 16 January 2020: He stops and says she is looking pretty in that sari. Radhika is not happy seeing this. She recalls Jumki’s words that Ganga is very cunning, she is trying to make Shiv hers. She says she wants to look pretty, so Shiv praises her, but she won’t let that happen.
Amma wants Shiv to lose confidence on himself and then their win will be easier. Pratap says her not to worry.
Radhika plans to drop cold water on Ganga so her makeup spoils and she doesn’t look pretty while family is doing last minute preparations. Amma tells Ganga to get something from outside. Radhika is all set to drop water. Jumki says Ganga is trying to impress Amma too, but she won’t let it happen. She tells Ganga she will go and get it. Water gets dropped on her. Radhika gets shocked seeing her instead Ganga. All family members come there. Radhika runs away. Ganga sees her. She goes to her and tells what she did is not right. Shiv told her not to do such silly things, still she didn’t listen to him. Radhika says, so what? she will go and complain to him? Ganga says she won’t do anything such. She’s just telling her what she is doing is not right.
Whole family is doing puja. Daima is happy for Shiv. After puja, Amma was going to put pagdi (turban) on Shiv’s head. Just then a villager comes in and says Shiv doesn’t deserve that pagdi. He killed his innocent child. Everyone’s shocked. The villager says Shiv gave medicine to his child..after which his health got worse and he died before they could do anything. Shiv says he gave ayurvedic medicine, so it’s impossible to get any harm from it. He wants to check the child, but his parents don’t let Shiv touch and tell all villagers that he doesn’t deserve this position. They leave. Ganga sees child’s face and she says it’s Chotu. Amma does drama and tells Shiv what he has done. Shiv has nothing to say and leaves there in disbelief. Pratap and Amma smile at each other.
Family returns home and they are having discussion. Kushal says they should have at least checked the child. How they can just believe what they said. Amma says what would happen by seeing the child? Would he become alive again? Jumki says since Ganga has come to that house, one or another thing has been happening with them. They all leave from there except Ganga and Daima. Ganga says she can’t believe no one except Kushal trust on Shiv. No one thinks about him. Family should help each other especially during bad time, but here no such thing is happening. Daima asks Ganga whether she trusts Shiv. She says the way she saw him working, she doesn’t think he can do such thing. Daima tells her to go and talk to Shiv them. He must be sitting beside Parvati’s photo.
Ganga comes to Shiv. He’s talking to Parvati and blaming himself for killing an innocent child. He disappointer her, his father, everyone. He’s not worth of getting all respect that villagers give him. He finished all. Ganga feels bad for him. Kushal comes there. He tells Ganga that Shiv always thought about others and today this.. with him? Last night he got call that a child is sick and he went to help him late night. Ganga says it sounds strange that ayurvedic medicine killed someone. Kushal says it’s impossible. Shiv’s medicine works as magic. He gives medicine mixing in milk. Ganga recalls Chotu telling her someone (didn’t get name) gives him medicine in milk daily and it tastes very bitter. She feels something is not right and decides to bring back Shiv’s respect no matter what.
Ganga wakes up as she hears beating, and wonders where the sound coming from is. She walks outside the house. Shiv was vigorously beating a wooden log with an axe. She recalls Dai Maa’s advice that Shiv needs a support. The next morning, Ganga requests Dai Maa to do something. Shiv comes to the table and announces he can’t hold the seat of PrataDev. The right must be given to Pratab. Savitri and Pratab asks how they can take his place. Shiv replies that Pratab must take their father’s place. Yesterday it has been proven he isn’t worth the seat. Pratab reluctantly agrees. Dai Maa looks in shock, Shiv was happy and so was Jhumki. Shiv informs about having arranged their turban ritual. Ganga was moved at the decision.
Later, during the turban ritual, Savitri and Pratab share wicked smiles. Ganga thinks there is something wrong for sure, she must find out. She walks outside, and in the drain she finds milk. She thinks this means Chotu still used to throw the milk, then how can his father blame Shiv for his death. Dai Maa comes behind, Ganga asks her about the whereabouts of the man. Dai Maa returns with the address. Ganga wants to go behind him, with a will to prove Shiv as innocent. They cover their faces with the veil.
At the bus station, Ganga and Dai Maa search for the man. They hear Chotu being forcefully taken by a coupe, after covering his face. She shows this to Dai Maa, she thinks this is important to stop this child and inform Shiv about it. Dai Maa sends Ganga to call Shiv, as she will keep an eye over the child. Ganga dials Shiv’s number, but the phone was on silent. She then calls home, Mukesh ji asks to speak to Shiv and informs the child is alive. Mukesh repeats the words, Pratab takes the phone. Ganga informs Pratab that Kishore is running away with the child who is alive, and tells him to come to bus stop. Pratab promises to come soon. Ganga. Dai Maa suggests about saving the child by taking the attention of people. Kishore and wife run to hold Dai Maa as she acts to fell down.
Ganga walks to Chotu and asks why he has placed the cap over his face. Chotu recognizes her, and says his Baba told him to cover his face. Ganga takes him aside and clutches his mouth. Chotu calls Kirhsore, they come to save Chotu. Pratab reaches there and strictly tells him to go to the car. He then beats Kishore for blaming Shiv falsely. They take Kishore to Shiv’s feet. Kushal says that since Shiv has been proven innocent, he must get the turban. Savitri comes to apologize Shiv, and announces him as Prata Dev. Pandit asks Ganga and Shiv to touch the alms. Shiv’s hands touch Ganga’s, both were moved. Ganga notices Shiv’s turban was lose and asks to tie it properly. Jhumki tells Radhika she is helpless, as Ganga has taken over her father. She plans against Ganga.Gangaa Thursday update 16 January 2020
