My Identity 5 January 2021: Shalu saying its their drama, they wanted to fool us and stay here for more days, if marriage had to happen, it would have happened 11 years before. Avni says please don’t say anything to my mumma. Shalu says yes, you both are good, and we are bad and mad.
She asks guests do you want your children to play with illegitimate child, whose parents did not marry till now. Asha says enough Shalu, not a word more. Avni asks Asha to calm down. She apologizes to Kia and says I don’t have right to raise hand on Kia, like no one has right to call me illegitimate. She tells Shalu that her mum and dad did not get married, so Shalu is calling her illegitimate, but even my mum and dad love me, like Shalu loves Kia.
She says even our house gets same water as yours, if we step out, does sun tell us that it will not give us light as we are illegitimate. She says I get same prasad in temple as aunty gets, we also hear Azaan as you do, then if all things are equal, how am I Najayaz. Asha cries. Avni says mum is hurt because of you, she had option to not bring me in this world, but she chose me, she said Papa wants me to come in this world, how am I Najayaz, tell me, my Papa could not come by some work, so will you say anything to my mumma, it does not mean Papa won’t come, if uncle comes late from office, you wait for him rather than saying he won’t come.
Shalu says every society has rules. Kia asks are the rules different for Maasi, as she is staying with Ajay uncle without marriage, you did not tell this to her. Shalu asks Kia what nonsense are you saying. She asks guests to decide. She asks Kia to come. Fatima warns her that if she throws stone in dirt, it will fall on her also.
Neela says whatever you say, I will bear everything, I love you, please tell me once. Ashish says Neela I…… Dayaben comes there. He sees her and says Neela you are my good friend, I know you will find it weird, but you don’t misunderstand me, I was not ready for all this, it was so sudden that…..I will take time to become a husband from a friend. Dayaben gets relieved. Neela smiles and asks is this the matter. She says you scared me, I know you very well, I know you always take time to make new relations, once that forms, you always keep them. Dayaben smiles.
Neela says it will be good to start it with friendship, such women are lucky whose husabnds are their best friends, I m also lucky, you are going to be my hubby and you are my best friend too, this friendship will not be friendship for long, it will soon change to love. Ashish smiles and ides his tension. Neela says I will leave, dad is waiting, thanks for saving Maa from big incident, thank God you both are safe, else don’t know what would happen of me, take care. She hugs him. Dayaben goes. Neela says I love you Ashish and goes. Ashish cries.
Asha tells Avni that I always wanted to tell you and felt you are too small to understand, but seeing your bravery today, I m sure you can understand me, when you came inside my womb 11 years back, I knew I m getting in such world where people will not accept your identity, I was thinking like a woman who wanted to keep her love sign, not like a mum, I thought we both will manage, but now I feel maybe I was wrong. Asha cries and says my belief was wrong, I have risked your world and happiness, I have let you see those dreams which can’t get fulfilled.
She asks Avni to forget her dreams, our family will not be normal family, me, you and Anaya will stay together like before, we will stay happy, your heart broke, forgive me. Avni says no, you did not do any mistake, one who did mistake should apologize. Asha says it was situation’s mistake. Avni says no, it happened because of Dadi. Asha says don’t go there, they are very big people, I don’t want to lose you, promise me. Avni says calm down and wipes her tears. She asks Asha to take care of Anaya and not take stress, leave everything to me, I promised Ali, when all guests leave, I will meet him. She says I will come back.
Avni goes to meet Ali. He gives her food. He says I m proud of you, I was scared of all that happened, did you talk to your Papa. She says no, he answered call and was trying to say, Dadi snatched the phone, he wanted to come in marriage, Dadi stopped me. Ali says like witch kept prince captured in palace. She says yes, mum and dad love each other, Dadi does not want our family to complete, she is doing wrong, my Papa is in trouble, we have to save her, I have to complete my family and save the hero, unite mum and dad. Ali says i m with you. They shake hands. She says we should have courage. He says yes, we will get him from palace, but where is that palace. She says don’t know. Someone hears them. She says who can it be, its secret way. They hide and see someone coming. Its Kia.
Kia coming to Avni and Ali at the secret place. Ali and Avni get shocked seeing her. Kia apologizes and asks Avni will she be her friend. Avni shakes hands and says friends. Ali says no, this Kia. Kia and Ali argue. Avni says Miss Mary says we should forgive anyone soon as we expect them to forgive us. Ali, Avni and Kia leave.
Riya shows the wedding card to Ashish and asks him to say how is it. Ashish recalls Avni seeing her. He kisses her and asks which one you like. She says this one. He says I also like this one. Riya hugs him and runs. Dayaben asks Ashish to come and have food. Ashish says I m not hungry, I m tired, let me rest. Dayaben says fine, take rest, I will send food for you. Ashish asks her to let him meet Asha and Avni once, I want to hug Avni once, then I won’t meet Asha again. She asks him why did he save her yesterday. He says you are my mum. She asks how can I let my son get into fire, you are my son, you remember you liked to ignite crackers, and one day you were getting spark in your clothes, its good I reached there and stopped you, you shouted angrily and scolded me, but I did not let you do that as it would burn you, you are not understanding this, this will burn your happiness, I will not let your happiness burn. She asks him to knock door if he wants to come out. She asks does he want anything, everything will get fine. She locks him and goes. He cries.
Kia says we have to find address of the palace where your Dadi has locked you. Ali asks why are we talking this again. Kia says I was not there. They both argue. Avni asks Ali not to argue with Kia, she is our friend and involved in our mission. Kia asks Avni to ask address from Asha. Ali calls it bad idea. Avni says mumma should not know about this, they feel they are elders and we should not do this, this should be secret. A courier guy comes and calls someone to know address. Ali smiles and gets idea. He says I m catching signal. She asks Avni does she have Dadi’s address, we will call and ask for address to send Diwali gifts, we will get work done. Avni says very nice idea. Ali jokes on Kia. They fight. Avni smiles seeing them.
A couple lights diya. Avni gets sad seeing them. She asks a man not to remove decorations. he asks why, is marriage happening. She says no, but its Diwali. Ashish recalls Dayaben’s words. Hetal and Ketan talk about Dayaben. Ketan says Maa can never do wrong. Ashish goes to balcony and throws mattress down. He jumos from balcony and gets hurt. He screams. Ketan and Hetal go to see. Ashish hides.
Avni calls out Asha. Asha asks her to brush first and then come out. Avni says I have to sleep. Asha asks why are you in hurry, its holiday for Diwali. Avni says early to bed early to rise…. Asha comes to her and says makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. Avni sees Asha sad and says you maybe missing Papa. Asha says no, sleep early. Avni says wait, you can’t sleep in these clothes. She asks Asha to go and change. Asha goes. Avni goes and takes Dayaben’s number from mobile. She sees Lord idol and says I know i did wrong to take number from mumma’s phone without mumma’s permission, I m doing this to get mumma and Papa together, promise I will not do this again, sorry, thanks for forgiving. Avni sleeps. Asha goes out of the room.
Ashish comes and knocks door. She opens the door and cries. She gets angry and says you should have answered call once and said you are okay, we were worried. He says I have to tell you something. He hugs her and says I have to marry Neela. She gets shocked. Ashish tells her everything and asks could I let mum get burnt and die. He holds her hand and says our love died infront of this hatred storm. She cries. She asks him to say truth. She asks when your mum asked you to leave us, did you think of me and Avni yes. He says no, I could not just see a mum who wanted to give her life, I could just see her pain. Asha cries and takes her hand away.
She says before I did not need your presence to feel your love, today you are with me, even if I can’t feel your love, where did that love go. He says love did not go anywhere Ashudi, this love is in our hearts and will always be, love never dies. She gets away from him.
