My Identity 30 December 2020: Ashish sleeping on the roadside bench. Dayaben calls him and he wakes up. She asks where are you, there is grahshanti puja at home, come soon, puja started. He says coming and ends call. He says grahshanti……..
Avni wakes up and looks for Asha. She sees kitchen door locked and stands on stool. She asks what are you doing inside, open the door. Asha opens the door and gets Avni down. Avni sees Asha offering namaz and asks her do you offer namaz by hiding, why. Asha says because I don’t want you to fall in problem by my belief. Avni asks why, if you do puja infront of everyone, why to hide and offer namaz. Asha says how to explain. Avni says teacher says all religions are different paths to reach one God, its good you follow all religions. Asha says some people don’t think so. Avni says Dadi…. You won’t shut door and pray from today, come on offer namaz. Asha says you have grown up in one night. Avni says I m just 10 years old, start now. Asha kisses her and offers namaz. Avni smiles seeing her.
Asha tells Avni that she was praying for her family’s happiness. Avni asks her not to pray, Lord can’t fulfil her prayers, it will hurt Lord if we pray this. She asks Asha to make dosa for her and goes. Ashish reaches home and sees puja going on. Dayaben asks whats this state, where were you all night. Everyone see Ashish. Ashish goes to his room. Dayaben comes to him and asks him to have bath and come fast. He stops her and says accept Asha and Avni. She says this can’t happen. He says Avni refused to accept me as father. She says Asha is cheating you. Ashish says Avni told me to live with you, and she will love with her mum. She says Asha wants to trap you in Avni’s love, they are clever, change clothes, I will wait for you, get ready, what are you seeing. He says Avni is my daughter, she wants normal family. She says enough, no use to say, this is not possible. He says it can be possible, fulfil my wish, you are my Maa, I beg you, accept them.
He cries and falls in her feet. Even then, she says no, never, my house will get impure if they come here. He says they have come here years ago, house would have got ruined if they were bad. He shows Asha and Avni’s pics behind the photo frame. She gets shocked and gets asthma attack. He says calm down, I will get your medicine. She throws frame. Everyone hear the arguments, while sitting in puja.
Dayaben says your dad did not fix any pic on wall, you have kept their pics here, so this is their magic, I will end the black magic today, I will ruin this. Pandit says puja got complete. Dayaben throws the pics in havan kund. She says I m saving my family. Ashish says they are my family Maa, don’t do this. Everyone get shocked.
Ashish tries to get pics from the fire. Hasmukh stops him. Ashish says this is not just a pic. He cries and says you can’t burn my and Asha’s relation. Ketan asks who are Asha and Avni. Diksha asks him to answer. Dayaben asks Ashish to tell everyone what he did since 11 years, now he cheated them. Ashish says stop it. She asks why, are you ashamed to say, that Asha is your mistress. Ashish shouts Maa. Everyone get shocked.
Ashish says enough now, I have heard Asha’s insult as I love you, but I love and respect Asha a lot, and for her, I can’t hear this word from anyone. Ketan asks is Asha that Aisha Haider. Dayaben says yes. Ketan says but Ashish said its rumor. Dayaben says Ashish and Hasmukh cheated us. Diksha asks what and scolds Hasmukh. Ashish says Hasmukh stopped me. Ketan says you did not stop. Ashish asks why are you saying in between. Dayaben says he will say, he is my son and has full right to talk, everyone says Ashish is my fav, see what Ashish did, he has a daughter and another child is going to come. She says she is illegitimate daughter. Ashish says Avni is not illegitimate. Dayaben asks what will happen if you say, did you marry by all Shastras, no, then your relation and children are illegitimate. Ashish says I wanted your blessings, I have waited for 11 years thinking you will agree. She says why, I will not leave my Dharm. He says who told you, I just want to say all Dharm should get inside our house. Dayaben says its impossible and scolds him. He says humanity is biggest Dharm for me. She asks if you want my love, you have to walk on my path and agree to me. He says I want your love, but I don’t accept this hatred. She asks him to accept her hatred too. He says I can die with your love, but I can’t live with your hatred. He says I m leaving this house……
Ashish leaving from the hall. Dayaben says he is not my son now. Ketan says what will we tell Neela and Hemant. Ketan and Diksha go to Ashish. Ashish packs his bag. Ketan asks him not to leave, what will happen of Neela, what will we tell Hemant. Ashish says I gave my word to Avni. Ketan and Diksha hug him and ask him not to leave. Ashish says you love me, come with me. Ketan says this can’t happen. Ashish says then leave from here. Diksha asks will you leave us for strangers. Ashish says they are not strangers, they are my family.
Ashish asks them to leave. Ketan says if anything happens to Maa, I will never forgive you. Ashish gets his bag and comes to take blessings from Dayaben. She says she can’t bless him to get ruined. Hasmukh says everything will get fine, be strong. Ashish meets the servants too. He removes the thread which Dayaben tied to his wrist and throws it in havan fire. Dayaben gets shocked. Ashish takes the burnt pics and leaves. Dayaben gets angry and stares at Hasmukh. Diksha says its good hemant went to kuldevi darshan, what will we tell him.
Dayaben says we have to tell him truth. Ketan says Neela’s engagement will break. Diksha says it will be unfair with Neela. Hasmukh says Maa is right. Hetal curses Asha and Avni.
Asha ties hair plaits to Avni. Avni says I m thinking to get hair cut. Asha is lost in thoughts. Avni turns to her. Asha asks will you never forgive Papa. Avni says we will promise to not hide anything from today. Asha promises her. Avni makes her smile and says a hug joins broken heart also. They hug. Asha cries. Avni consoles her.
Avni cries and controls her emotions. Asha says I will pack your tiffin. Guard comes and gives milk. Avni says you got milk late, have it daily, healthy body leads to healthy mind. He says I understand and goes. Ashish comes to meet Avni. Avni looks at him. He gets his bag. Ashish says I have to come to stay here forever like a normal family, will you forgive me. Asha comes and sees him and says you here, why are you standing at the door. Asha shuts door and goes to shut windows. Ashish says let windows be open. He goes to Avni and removes his shoes.
He says you want to know truth right, the truth is you are not illegitimate, you are my daughter, children are never illegitimate, parents are illegitimate….. Avni cries. Ashish says Papa did wrong with you, forgive me. He holds his ears. Avni asks will you stay here forever. Ashish nods. Avni asks him to promise. He says promise. Avni hugs Ashish and cries. Asha cries happily. They ask Asha to come. Asha hugs them and they all cry. Avni wipes Ashish’s tears. They all wipe their tears. Avni asks does normal family wipe tears like this. Asha and Ashish laugh. Avni says I love you. Ashish kisses Avni and says I love you too.
Dayaben and Ketan go to meet Hemant. She greets Hemant and gets distracted seeing muslim driver. She says I need to say something imp. Hemant asks her to say, Neela comes and asks are you guys coming with us. Hemant says you are Neela’s mum, Neela got a mum and loving husband. Dayaben recalls Ashish’s words. She asks him to get marriage date. Hemant says why shall we delay, come with us, we will get them married. Dayaben says no, just take the date. Hemant and Neela leave. Dayaben tells Ketan that she will fulfil her promise, Ashish will come back, I m hurt he went, but he can’t stay without me, that is not his world, I will not let him become part of that family, I know how to get Ashish.
