Tai says I was thinking to whom this belongs, you would have written name Asha. Asha asks does thing get ours by writing name. Tai says naamkaran gives identity, be it to kids, utensils and relations, our society does not acknowledge love which has no name, why your hands shake to write Mrs. Asha Mehta, you should claim rights to get the name.

Fatima says he won’t come, try to understand. Avni cries and says the same that Papa will come. Fatima says this is truth, he won’t come. Avni angrily slaps Fatima. Asha asks what did you do Avni. Avni says my Papa will come and goes.
Neela serves the shapeless and party burnt roti and curry to Hemant. He laughs seeing the roti. Neela asks Papa how can you laugh on my roti, I won’t sit here. He says I m not laughing, I was just seeing it. She says no need to eat it now, you don’t like it. He says leave plate, it would have fell on me, I will eat it, who else will eat it. She says right, no one will eat this. He says its not so bad, I will eat it, feed me by your hands. She feeds him.
He says it looks so so, but taste is really good, how did you make this, you added much love in this, so its so tasty, Ashish is very lucky to get a girl like you. She says I m lucky to get him, he is a nice guy. He says I know you love him since childhood. She says its not like that.

He asks is Asha and Avni fine. She asks will anything get fine since so many years, I called you for Avni, she has slapped me today. She cries and says my girl Avni slapped her Nanno for you. He says what, I will scold you.
She says don’t scold her, listen why she slapped me, because I told her truth that you won’t come on her sports day, Avni got angry, I will not leave you if Avni’s dreams shatter, I have seen Aisha’s dreams shattering today, I will not bear if you do this with Avni, you maybe big film director, but for your life, not for Avni’s life, if her heart breaks, I will not leave you, don’t know why she trusts you a lot, if her trust breaks, I will enter your house and break your head, I will not leave you if you don’t come on sports day, never see this house again. Tiku stops her. Fatima scolds Ashish a lot. Tiku snatches phone and ends call. Ashish gets sad.
