Gangaa 12 May 2020: On Gangaa Tuesday 12 May 2020 update, Ganga looks at the room. I was playing cricket with Sagar. How did I come here? Who has brought me here? Yes, two men kidnapped me.
Sagar too had seen them. he had ran after them. He too must be around. She tries to open the window but in vain. She peeks out of the window and notices the ladies standing outside. I cannot see Sagar. These are all new people. Where am I? Why have those men brought me here? She sits down on the floor. He bandage has come off so she removes it.
The lady pays money to the guys. She smiles as she notices those men counting the money. You brought a fab girl today. You have made my day!
Omkar, Niru and Raghav ji are at the police station. Niru cannot stop pacing as he waits for the Inspector to get free. He asks the constable about it. Raghav ji calms him down. They hear the Inspector laughing from inside. Niru storms in angrily. Constable follows him all the while trying to stop him. Niru scolds the Inspector. I was waiting outside since last 15 minutes. I was told that you were busy but I had no idea you were busy with tea and snacks. Inspector scolds the constable for not informing him that niru was waiting outside. He makes Niru sit. Omkar is tensed at the Inspector’s reaction. Niru tells Inspector that Ganga is missing. Inspector recalls her to be the same girl whom he had picked up from the ghaat. Niru nods.
Ganga bangs at the door again. The lady sends the goons out. She heads to the room where Ganga is. Ganga steps back from the door. The lady walks in. Ganga asks her who she is. Why have those men brought me here? Why have you locked me here? The lady likes Ganga’s attitude. She will be great when she grows up. Ganga tells her straight that she will not stay here. The lady tells her that she cannot go anywhere now. Ganga says I wont stay here at your place. I will stay with Babu. He is a very big lawyer. He will come running here when he finds out that you have locked me in here. I am going. She begins to go when the lady holds her hand and pushes her on the floor. Ganga is taken aback.
Niru has no photo of Ganga. He then calls Madhvi but her number is unreachable.
At home, doc checks Sagar. Amma ji asks for Niru. Madhvi shares that he has gone to police station. Pulkit gets a call from Niru. Amma ji picks it. She tells him to come home straight away. Sagar is not well. Are you concerned more about that stranger girl than your son? Niru reasons that everyone is with Sagar. Ganga is all alone. No one knows where she is. She has been kidnapped. The issue can be so sensitive. Amma ji doesn’t mind being called insensitive or lowly thinking. She gives phone to Madhvi. Doc gives injection to Sagar. Madhvi tells Niru that Sagar is muttering something or other in his sleep. Niru assures her that he will get well. I am worried about him too. I will reach home soon. Do you have Ganga’s photo? Pulkit has it. He sends it to Niru. Madhvi is about to say something about Sagar but Niru disconnects the call. Doc tells the family not to worry. I am writing medicines and he will be fine.
The lady sits down next to Ganga. You will punish me? She is about to eats paan. She offers it to Ganga who declines it. Kids don’t eat paan. The lady eats it and wipes her fingers on Ganga’s hairs. Ganga tells her that it is her first day of school tomorrow. What will the teacher think about me? Please let me go. Sagar too must be so worried. He would have told Babu by now. He must be looking for me. Amma ji gets angry when girls don’t return home before night. She will get angry tonight too. She wont let me in. The lady shouts at her asking her to be quiet. A girl walks in. The lady tells her to explain it to Ganga that she cannot go out of here now. She turns to Ganga again. This is your house now and your school. You will learn everything here only.
Niru forwards Ganga’s photo to the Inspector. I will get the photo printed and send it across to all the police stations. I will do my best but this is a huge city. Anyone can pick her. Girls are made to do anything nowadays. Niru loses his cool. Omkar and Raghav ji tell him to let police do the best. Inspector asks Niru if he had any enemy or if Ganga had any fight with anyone outside or inside the family. Omkar is tensed. Niru denies. honestly speaking I have no idea even if there was! Inspector reasons that it can be due to internal enmity too as no one has called for ransom. Niru requests him to find Ganga asap as she is his responsibility. I had told her that nothing will happen to her till I am here. Inspector assures him of the same.
Ganga knows that this isn’t school. You can shout like a teacher but wont become thus. I accept it as a school but I wont study here. You have worn such colourful clothes and look at your attire. I cannot wear colourful clothes. I am a widow. I can only wear white. I have found a perfect school for me after so much of hard work. The uniform there is all white. Please let me go or Amma ji will scold me. Ganga requests that lady to let her go but the lady tells her against it. I have spent lots of money on you. You only will make me earn more than what I have spent on you when you grow up! The lady gives charge of Ganga to that girl. Tell her all the rules of our profession. It is up to you how you do it! The lady walks out of the room.
Ganga bangs at the door again. Please let me go. I don’t want to stay here. Everyone must be waiting for me. The girl tells her not to act stubborn. No one will let you get away from here ever. There is no point in screaming or shouting. Rest now. Ganga insists on going but the girl repeats that that is impossible now.
Niru tells Omkar to go home. I am going to look for Ganga along with Raghav ji. I too want to try. Omkar reminds him about Sagar’s health. Niru loses his cool. Do you think I am not worried for my son? He is my own son. My heart wants me to be with my son but my mind wants to find Ganga asap or she might get into some big trouble. He leaves with Raghav ji.
Niru and Raghav ji check at every possible place and ask every passerby.
The lady returns to the room where Ganga is. Ganga has fallen asleep. She locks the door from outside once again. She next walks into another room. There is another door inside which leads to an adjoining room where many other girls are kept as well. She looks at all those girls. She calls out for Kamini. I had told you to take care of these girls but they look so frail. Feed them well. I have to send them to the city tomorrow only. Kamini (the same girl who was given the charge of Ganga) nods.
Niru and Raghav ji check at the Railway Station and bus stand too but in vain. Niru wonders if she might be at the ghaat. A lot many kids are taken there to beg.
Niru’s rickshaw has to pass by the red light area to reach the ghaat. The lady (owner, Surili) drops water down. The rickshaw puller was about to scold the person but greets Surili when he notices that it is her. the guy (surili’s goon, Heera) asks her if everything is fine.
Niru prays Ganga never comes here. Raghav ji wants to go to the ghaat. Niru asks the paan seller about Ganga. He shows him her pic. Heera comes there. The paan seller tells him that Niru is looking for a girl. I dint see her but you might have as it is your job after all. Heera tells him to mind his business. He next asks Niru if he is looking for someone. Niru shows him Ganga’s photo. I am looking for this girl. Have you seen her? He gets tensed.
Surili tells her girls to get the girls ready nicely. I have to run this house so you have to work hard. She asks Kamini if Ganga has eaten anything. Kamini denies. Ganga said that she is a widow and she cannot eat all the fried stuff. Surili is surprised that such a young girl talks about all the rules that a widow has to follow.
Heera lies to Niru. She looks so simple and innocent. The times are changing. She might have been taken out of town by now or worse, killed her. Niru retorts back saying he dint ask for his ideas. I will find her at any cost. He leaves with Raghav ji.
Heera runs upstairs to tell Surili that Niru is looking for Ganga. He is not going to give up soon it seems. Surili tells him to keep an eye on Ganga and all the other kids. I will send them away tomorrow itself. I don’t want to get into any trouble. He nods.
Prabha is hungry and irked as no one is eating anything. I will die hungry! She calls out for Maharaj ji next. Bring something for Madhvi didi. She sits down on the sofa. Amma ji is counting beads. Maharaj ji brings food. Prabha is very happy to see it but then asks Madhvi to eat it. Who will take care of Sagar if you fall ill? You have to take care of yourself. Madhvi is not hungry. Prabha tries to feed Amma ji also but Amma ji scolds her. Who can eat in this situation? You only should eat! Prabha sends the plate back sadly.
Niru returns home. He tells everyone that he couldn’t find any clue. Omkar says you couldn’t do anymore. I k now you would have searched in every nook and corner of this city. Amma ji too tells Niru to leave it on God. Niru is in no mood to sit back. Wolves are outside on the streets. They don’t even care about the age of the girls! Amma ji too is worried about Ganga. God will save her. Your son is ill. You have to worry for him too. Madhvi adds that Sagar is scared. His medical condition is anyways bad. Niru says that can never change but we will have to make him stay strong through all the ups and downs in life. He heads to Sagar’s room with Madhvi and Amma ji following him.
Pulkit and Babli try to divert Sagar’s mind but he sits there sadly. They try to make him play card but Sagar denies. He recalls the last time when they were playing cards. When will Ganga come back? I don’t like playing anything without her. She always supports me, takes care of me. She never lies. I am missing her. Please bring her back. The elders overhear all this. Niru assures Sagar that Ganga will surely come back. Police is looking for her. She will be found real soon. Sagar blames himself for this situation. I only asked Ganga to play cricket with me and she agreed. Nothing like this would have happened if she would have said no. This happened only when she went out of the house. Niru denies. You are not at fault. You only wanted her to play with you. It can happen anywhere with anyone. You don’t have to blame yourself. You fell sick? Are you this week? You are my strong son! You will grow up in a few years and then you will have to look after the family. You will have to be strong for that. Sagar admits it that he was very scared initially. Niru asks him if he will tell this to Ganga when she is back. You know how strong she is even in the tough times. She stays strong and never loses her calm. She always tries to move forward.
It is night. Ganga peeks out from the window. I am not going to get scared of anything. They can scare me for anything but I wont fall weak. I will leave from here tonight at any cost. I have to go to school from tomorrow after all.
