Gangaa 23 January 2021 update: Ganga wakes up in the morning, and finds a new dress on the side table. She walks out of her room in veil and looks around. Thumki comes from behind to wish her good morning, Ganga replies.
Thumki taunts this is her used saree that Ganga is wearing, and suits her. She demands to see Ganga’s face, but Ganga denies as Dai Maa has forbidden to remove her veil. Thumki says that restriction is for elders and male, but she is younger by relation. She forces the veil away, Ganga strictly says she shouldn’t have done this. Thumki asks why Ganga is so egoistic, after all Ganga came in this house after her. Thumki taunts she brought 3 tola gold with her, and Ganga could not even get her own clothes. Kushal comes to send Thumki away for some work, and introduces himself as Ria’s (Shiv’s sister) husband. He tells her to share if she needs something. Ganga moves towards her room, Shiv brings the doctor to check Ganga. The doctor shuts the door while Shiv awaits outside the room. The doctor says its amenesia, temporary memory loss; maybe she recalls in a few days, months or may be years. She is suggesting a few medicines, which will give them a clue about her future treatment plan. Shiv comes to Ganga and requests her not to tell anyone about memory loss, as his family is already upset because of his father’s death. He leaves a bag which her uncle had loaded in the car, may be it contains a few of her valuables.
Ganga looks at the clothes in the suitcase which were not hers. She wonders why these clothes are not her measurements if they are hers. A photo wrapped in the clothes fall off. Dai Maa brings a new saree for Ganga as she has to attend Lok Sabha. Ganga shares with Dai Maa that she is really clueless, these clothes brought with her are not her measurements. She wonders when her memory would return. Dai Maa says she must pave her own way just like her name accepting her present, and not to look back at the past. Ganga agrees.
Later, Ganga gets ready in the room and wears the mangal sooter. Then covers her face with a veil. Outside in the hall, people share their mourning with Thumki. Shiv objects with Thumpki’s over makeup, but she was stubborn. Pratab argues with the Pandit that there was no Pagri written in the list. Shiv comes to solve the matter, and sends Shiv to get 10-12 dhotis for Pagri ritual. Pandit considers only Shiv as worth holding family’s responsibilities. Savitri asks Ria about Aashi. They watch Aashi come with white flowers that she places in front of the photo. Pandit tells Shiv to light a flame along with his wife. Dai Maa goes to bring Ganga. Radhika was enraged watching Ganga come inside. Savitri watches Ganga’s face in the shadow of water and asks if Ganga didn’t put sindoor. Ganga replies she forgot. Savitri sends Ria to bring the sindoor, and asks Shiv to put it over her head partition; but without looking at her. Ganga gets a vague flash of sindoor ritual with Sagar, her head bangs and she almost lost her balance while Shiv holds him. Savitri sends her inside. Thumki comes to say to Radhika that her new mother only wants to snatch everything from her since first day. In the room, Dai Maa tells Ganga to take rest, as she hasn’t eaten anything since morning. Ria and Aashi come to the room and assures Ganga they are good sister in laws. Ria introduces herself, Aashi and Shiv to Ganga. Ria tells her about the dresses Savitri sent for Grahpravesh; Ganga nods as they all leave.
Everyone was excited as Dai Maa brings Ganga. People gossip they took their first daughter in law in arms. Savitri strictly warns them not to be late again. Ganga comes to sit beside Shiv, her foot touches with Shiv’s who reacts at once. Savitri announces to begin the Pooja.
There was Gath Bandhan, Thumpki whispers something in Radhika’s ears. The couple stand up. Savitri notices Shiv was upset, and tells him to unveil the bride as per ritual. He thinks about Parvati. Savitri again takes his attention, as he removes the veil off Ganga’s face. Ria was happy and notices Kushaal staring towards Ganga. Thumki was left open eyes, Aashi thinks Ganga is really pretty. Shiv removes her earring off his pants, and returns it to her. He says these are his family jewellry, she must take care of them. Shiv hurries them for Grahpravesh. Ria does their aarti and tells Ganga to push the kalash before entering.
Thumki places the color pot for finger prints, she points towards Parvati’s foot prints saying no one can take Parvati’s place. Ganga looks towards Dai Maa for a while, then makes another mark, and replies Thumki she isn’t here to take someone’s place. She is Ganga and can find her own way. Ria and Aashi were impressed, Dai Maa happy while Savitri and Thumki were shocked. Ganga walks inside into her room. Kushaal was happy they will have good confrontations. Savitri sends Dai Maa to show Ganga her room. In the corridor, Dai Maa tells Ganga she shows Pavitri her room just like Ganga. Ganga says Dai Maa called her a daughter, she need not call her out of respect. Dai maa gets teary. Ganga notices someone stalking her, then goes ahead with Dai maa. The room was vast. Dai Maa says this is her room. Ganag looks towards Parvati’s picture and calls her pretty, Dai Maa agrees she was really beautiful and goes to get something for her to eat. Ganga looks around towards the intricate decoration and pottery and was about to touch them when Shiv enters. He forbids her and says its good she wants to make her place in the house, but she need not touch Parvati’s belongings. Everything must be as Parvati left, even him. Ganga agrees, and calls Parvati as pretty. Shiv says he sleeps outside, she can live comfortably in this room. He can’t sleep well in this room since Parvati has left. Ganga sits on the bed, blankly. She watches Radhika’s dress, as she stood outside and comes behind her. Radhika turns her face angrily, Ganga forwards her hand towards her and says a hello, introducing herself as Ganga. Radhika doesn’t reply and leaves. Ganga was worried.
At night, Savitri watches Aashi and says she knows well she couldn’t come over her father’s cremation. Thumki informs about Ganga’s arrival, Savitri says each daughter in law must reach before dinner. Dai Maa takes the blame over herself, and assures she would tell her about all the rules. Savitri insists she must abide by the rules if to stay in the house. Everyone leaves the table. Thumki says now after everyone had her meal, she will eat. Dai Maa apologizes Ganga for not informing. Ganga asks her about Shiv, as no one waited for her. Dai Maa qualifies Shiv returns a little late, as he is busy. Shiv enters the house then.
Dai Maa says she would serve the food, he agrees. Dai Maa sends her behind Shiv to help him get fresh. Ganga comes towards Shiv. The pot of water drops off his hands towards Ganga, she bends before him and fill it with water in spite of his resistance. She pours water for him, then brings towel. He takes it after a little resistance and nods at her. Ganga wonders where life has taken her, if yes then why everyone feels strange.
Thumki curses her luck that Shiv just reached, and was upset that she is really hungry. Shiv sits to have food. Savitri says had he informed them, they could have waited for him. Shiv says he doesn’t like everyone wait for him. Savitri accompanies him during the dinner, while Ganga and Thumki stood there. Muneem ji comes to take Shiv back as a few employees are leaving job. Savitri complains Muneem that Shiv only reached home, he may take Pratab. Kushal says only Shiv’s signatures work. Savitri was curt when Muneem and Kushaal insist only Shiv will take his father’s place. Shiv leaves. Savitri also leaves the hall curtly. Thumki hurries for dinner. She forbids Ganga to sit and eat, as her husband hasn’t eaten yet. Ganga hears angrily. Thumki says when her husband has eaten, she can only eat in his left over plate. Ganga replies she has no problem in looking forward to his return, but she won’t eat in a left over plate. Thumki asks if she seems to be an owl, Ganga must mind it that everyone must abide by the rules of this house. Ganga leaves the hall. Thumki calls from behind, that eating the left over increases love. Shiv used to feed Parvati with his own hands, but it seems it’s not her fate to eat this way. In the room, Ganga drinks water to calm herself down. She was upset about Shiv’s cold behavior. She lay on the bed, then sits up upset that these people appear to be strangers. She cries that she herself is a stranger, she doesn’t recognize her own self.
Shiv returns home late at night, he finds Savitri’s room light still on and goes to her. He massages her legs, and holds himself responsible for bringing this loneliness to her life. Savitri considers this her fate, but now she realizes what Shiv must have bear after Parvati. She also understands he has to bear Ganga as a burden now. Shiv says he would never be able to give Ganga the rank and place of a wife. Savitri assures her side to Shiv, just like his father. She goes to get a box full of laddu; like his father did. She will continue his tradition now and places a laddu in Shiv’s hand. Shiv massages her legs for a while, then leaves the room.
There, Ganga has a dream about drowning, and Sagar’s call for Ganga and Krishna. She wakes up sweating and notices allergy all over her bed. There were pests over her bed, she gets down screaming. Thumki and Ria enter, Ganga points towards the ticks on bed. Ria goes to get an ointment, Thumki cheers this seems to be Radhika’s mischievousness. Radhika smiles from behind.
Ganga wakes up at mid night wondering why she is so hungry. She remembers she didn’t have breakfast last night, her hands were also itchy. She goes out to get a little fresh, and watches Shiv cleaning the cow house. He then tied the legs of cow, and speaks to him that his father is no more here to come to her. He gets upset that his father would not return, for any of us now. He sits to milk to cow, and speaks to the cow that even animals understands the language of humans which even humans may not understand. They both feels the absence of his Bauji. Shiv comes inside. Ganga watches Shiv from upstairs in the kitchen, then thinks may be Shiv is hungry. Shiv notices the lights in kitchen and goes to see who is awake, Ganga was looking into the pots in search of food. He tells Ganga kitchen opens after 8 o clock Pooja, then notices the irritated skin of Ganga. He hands Ganga his glass, but she didn’t look towards him. He pours tea for Ganga from his cup and leaves. Ganga watches him go, and calls him stone hearted complaining he didn’t inquire about what she wanted. She then looks towards the cup, and sips the tea. Shiv watches her drink.
Ganga passes through the corridor where Shiv had been working.
Jhumki hears Pratab complaining Savitri that Shiv can’t get the turban of the village, he wonders how can Savitri bear this injustice done with her real son. Savitri advices him to learn and do something by himself. Kushal comes from behind Jhumki and asks what she is doing here. Jhumki explains she was checking the dust at the door.
Outside, Shiv was grinding some herbs using mortar and pestle.
Jhumki comes to Shiv and asks if he would eat something. Shiv hands her an ointment to give it to Ganga. After Shiv leaves, Jhumki was determined not to give the ointment to Ganga at any cost. Outside, Shiv remembers about telling Ganga to put the ointment for only 20 minutes. He enters to find the bowl spilt on the corner of floor and picks it up carefully off the floor.
In the room, Ganga had taken a back and was combing when Shiv enters. He knocks at the door. Ganga covers her head at once, and asks if there is something important. Shiv gives him the bowl of ointment and leave. Ganga comes to put it over her body, and smiles over Shiv’s care for her.
In the hall, Savitri advices Pratab to get up early. Jhumki brings the tea for both, complaining about all the jobs she has to do. Aashi comes to the hall, and chases Radhika for ruining her makeup. She accuses Radhika of stealing her lipstick. Radhika taunts if not ruining a lipstick will get her married. Aashi was angry, but Jhumki also taunts Aashi for not being able to marry. Dai Maa brings Ganga for Savitri’s blessing as today will be her first kitchen. Savitri says taking their elder’s blessings is also important, she must place a plate of food on the roof. Dai Maa takes Ganga along with her, and tells her to prepare kheer poori.
Jhumki comes to Radhika and teases, her new mother will now get blessings from the heirs as well. Radhika wasn’t ready to let Ganga reach the roof. Jhumki stops Ganga and asks her to take Shiv’s lunch box, as he forgot it home today. She says everyone outside knows about his whereabouts and can take her there. Ganga says she would take it, after placing the food on roof. Jhumki cheers.
Radhika cuts the log of wooden stairs outside, Jhumki comes to look for Radhika on the roof. Radhika thinks this way Ganga won’t be able to get the blessings of their heirs and hides behind the well as Ganga arrives. She watches Ganga step up the stair and slip over the floor. Ganga was upset there is something wrong with her, and was relived the food didn’t fell off. Radhika was upset as Ganga somehow manages to go up and place the food there. Ganga remembers about taking the lunch box to Shiv, but finds the cutter there on floor.
