My Identity 22 December 2020: Dayaben going to the temple at night. She knocks the temple door and calls out someone. A man comes and gives her keys. Dayaben opens the lock and goes inside the temple.
She asks Mata to laugh on her, my Devpurush, whom you sent to help me, he is dying and he is asking for my son, my son is not mine, how shall I give him to Hemant Bhai, what shall I do, I don’t understand. Ashish calls her and her phone is left at home. Dayaben says till you show me the way, I won’t leave from here. She sleeps there in the temple, while Ashish calls her many times. She wakes up in morning and looks at the idol.

Hasmukh asks did you come back from Kashmir. Ashish says Maa went to my and Asha’s house, I told Maa by mail about Avni and Asha. Hasmukh asks what, what did she say. Ashish says she did not talk to me, she is not answering my call, she read the mail as she has gone to Asha’s house. Hasmukh says give her some time, you gave her a big shock. Ashish says I hope you are right, I will call later. Ketan tries to call Dayaben.

He says fine, you read my email. She says yes, I read your email and I have seen your world, Ashish you have hidden such a big world for 11 years. He asks are you annoyed with me. She says yes, I m annoyed, I m in pain, I m worried too.
She says why did my son need so much time to say truth. He says forgive me Maa. She asks forgive you…. You come back, I will twist your ear infront of Asha and Avni, why did you not say before, you had waited for 11 years with the burden, did you wait for shagun 11 years. He cries and says I was scared, I tried to tell you, but could not, I always saw your face and stopped, if I knew you will understand me like this and easily forgive me, I would have told this to you earlier, I m sorry Maa. She says its fine, you had courage and now go ahead, when are you coming back, come back soon, I miss you. Ashish says I m coming, I also miss you, I love you the most. She says I know, I have to prepare for your new life, call later. She looks at the chess game.

Ashish says my world stopped, I wish you were with me today, I m very happy, we were waiting for this since 11 years. She asks what happened. Ashish says Ashudi, I told Maa about you, us, and Avni, I thought she will get annoyed, she will shout and do this and that, but you know nothing such happened. He cries happily. Asha too gets tearful eyes and thanks Lord. He asks are you praying. She says no, I m thanking Lord as prayer is answered.
He says all credit will not go to your prayers, half credit should go to my daughter, if she did not get adamant, I would have not taken this step.
