Pulkit talks so sweetly to me. He helps me a lot. Maharaj ji too helps me a lot. He gives me food, wipes my tears when I cry. There is only one wrong thing about him. He gargles so loud in the morning and runs straight to the washroom. He cannot control it. Everyone smiles. I like Mehri Didi too. She talks fun. She likes to look good. She does her work and talks nonstop. She only has taught me how to wash clothes nicely. Sir is very straight and honest. I had met Sir on the ghaat the day my Bappa died. I too would have plunged into Ganga ji, if it wasn’t for him. He saved me. He brought me to his home. I got a new family. Bappa used to say that he will always be with me. I was angry when he left me. I thought he lied to me. he was not with me. But later I realised, my Bappa came in the form
of Sir. Everyone has tears in their eyes. He takes very good care of me. He teaches me good things, just the way Bappa used to teach me. I too will become like him when I grow up. I will be famous. I will help everyone. I will never let Sir get angry because I feel bad when that happens. I feel like crying. Niru wipes his tears and so does everyone else. Niru reads, Yash says this family isn’t mine. But I know that this is indeed my family. Sir is there in palce of Bappa. There is Madhvi in place of Maiyya. Now this is my home. I will always live here with all of them. Gangaa asks Sir if it’s true? Will anyone ask her to leave this house? He opens his arms and she happily rushes to give him a warm hug. Even Prabha is all emotional.
Amma ji is surprised that such a small girl wrote such a big essay. Prabha thinks that Gangaa might have seen some film on TV. Yash is also irked that she added his name in it. Gangaa repeats that she never lies. Niru gives her result. You speak well, but your writing style is wrong. Grammar sense is really bad. The work is not neat. Kids get marks for good handwriting too. You have written everything nicely. You can express yourself pretty good. She gets glad that she has passed her exam. She smiles.

Amma ji goes to sleep. Drishti congratulates Gangaa. She wishes everyone goodnight and leaves. Niru says you will have to study really hard now. Ratan leaves with his family. Sagar looks away when Gangaa looks at him. Madhvi compliments Gangaa for the essay. Niru tells Gangaa to sleep. Get ready very early, tomorrow morning. We have to go somewhere. You will really like it there. It is a prize for you from my side. You deserve it. Sagar looks down. Niru notices this. You deserve a gift as you got good marks. Sagar gets a laptop for studying purpose. Pulkit stands there all sad. Madhvi notices this. Sagar rushes to his room. Gangaa too goes to her room. Pulkit too heads upstairs. Amma ji calls out for Madhvi so she heads to her room.
At night, Madhvi is all lost in thoughts. She thinks of Drishti’s and Gangaa’s words. Niru calls out for her, but she isn’t listening. He brings her out of her reverie. She wonders if she should tell him everything or not? He has brought a gift for her too. I am feeling peaceful after so long. Finally everything is settling down for good. Tomorrow is Drishti’s engagement. Gangaa too has decided to study. People are right, time passes. We all were really tensed since the past fe2 days. Finally all the problems are over. He notices her tensed. She decides not to give him any tension. Plus I don’t have any proof against Omkar. I am happy to see you happy.
Next morning, Amma ji wakes up Gangaa. Gangaa is happy that she will take her with her. It’s been days. Aren’t you angry with me anymore? Amma ji reminds her of her essay. I am not your enemy. I want you to follow the rules. Gangaa gets up immediately. Widows should do Ganga snan in the morning. Let’s go. Amma ji gives Gangaa her potli.
Niru is doing yoga. Amma ji is surprised to see him up so early. He says yoga keeps one fit. You only say that. She nods. Your father used to do it. Teach it to Sagar and Pulkit too. She begins to go, but Niru stops Gangaa from going to Ganga ghaat with Amma ji. Amma ji leaves. Niru doesn’t share it with Gangaa as well as to where they are going. He resumes his Yoga.
Niru brings Gangaa to school. Gangaa looks at the Principal’s room. She recalls how the kids had mocked her. I came here till now as Sagar’s friend, yet they mocked me. Now I will be a student here. Niru has submitted her admission form. She is amazed that he will get her admitted in Sagar’s school. Sir is doing so much for me. She mentally promises him that she will study hard. Principal enters the room. He looks at Gangaa from top to toe. Niru stands up and makes Gangaa follow suit. Principal says I don’t think I will be able to help you in anyway. Gangaa looks sad.

He says It’s been 2 years since this girl left school. Plus it was Hindi medium. She will have to start afresh if you really want her to start studying. Niru doesn’t mind it. Principal suggests to him to try somewhere else. The standard of this school is really high. Kids from rich / good houses come here to study. I don’t think this girl will be able to fit in here. Her confidence will be broken. I will advise you to get her admitted in a government school. Niru thanks him for his advice. I don’t think Gangaa’s confidence will break or she will not fit in here. Gangaa nods. Sir is right. A school is a school. I will try hard. Principal talks about the entrance exam which she will have to clear to get admission here. Writing such essays is easy. She doesn’t know anything, English or Computers. Kids
here are proficient in both. How will she match up with this? Gangaa says you cannot judge me without testing me. I will pass the exam however hard it is. Niru adds that she will have to prove it. Think and tell. You have time. Are you ready to try it? Gangaa affirm it. She says I will do it. Niru gives the form back to the Principal. I hope you don’t have any problem now. Principal takes it. I will call you in a few days for the exam. He goes to submit the form. Niru says it is all in your hands. Will you be able to do it? Gangaa nods. I will do it. Niru decides to rope in Tiwari ji for the help for the exam. Don’t tell anything to Amma ji till the time the exam is done.
Niru speaks to Tiwari ji. Gangaa has changed. Tiwari ji refuses to teach Gangaa. I know I am poor, but I cannot get myself insulted. Gangaa folds her hands before him. Please listen to Sir. I promise I will study hard. I will not trouble you I promise. Please help me. Come one day. You can stop coming from the next day onwards if I trouble you. Sir or no one would ask you to come then. Tiwari ji agrees to give her a chance. I will first check if she has changed or not. Niru requests him to come in the evening. Tiwari ji goes to bring tea for him. Niru turns to Gangaa. Everything is in your hands. You will have to impress him. Behave so nicely that he agrees to teach you. I tried my best. Now it is your turn. It all depends on you.

Haldi ceremony is happening at Chaturvedi House. Some ladies are singing songs. Omkar tells everyone not to do anything. I just had a word with our in-laws. Someone in his family died. He has asked us to postpone this engagement. I didn’t ask in details. Dubey Ji only said that this engagement will not happen. Niru and Amma ji nod. We cannot push anyone for it. It’s not a good time. We will get a little more time for preps. Prabha is concerned about the sweets or they will rot otherwise. Drishti is sad.
Gangaa wonders what she should do to make Master ji happy. She recalls something. I will write A to Z 100 times. But it will take lots of time. I will learn Mary and Little Lamb. He always used to teach it to me. She starts reading it. Yash is watching her from afar. Sagar comes there. Master ji is coming again so she is studying. Yash wants to play games on laptop. Sagar stops him. Papa has given it to me for studies. He takes the laptop and goes out. Yash decides to teach a lesson to Gangaa.
Yash plays loud music. Gangaa cannot concentrate. Sagar too tells Yash to switch off the music as Gangaa is studying. Yash doesn’t care. Gangaa requests Yash to lower the volume but Yash wants Sagar’s laptop in return. Gangaa asks Sagar to lower the volume but Sagar declines. I am not your friend. Why should I listen to you? Why should I take your side then? Gangaa looks at both of them and then goes out. Sagar feels bad.
Sudha and Pishi Ma are sitting with Amma ji. They discuss about the engagement. Omkar is eyeing Sudha. Amma ji thinks that some evil eye has fallen on them.
Gangaa holds her ears. Sagar goes out to check. Gangaa picks up her books and walks away.
Maharaj ji brings tea for the ladies. Omkar asks him to bring some snacks too. He says Sudha ji looks so frail. He adds Pishi Ma’s name hastily. Sudha is taken aback. Amma ji doesn’t find anything odd about it. She says He is so concerned about everyone all the time. Pishi Ma suggests Amma ji to keep a Ramayan Paath at home. It will benefit the house and its people. Sudha nods. She notices Omkar staring at her. Amma ji wants to consult a priest first. You both will have to come every day. Pishi Ma is not keeping so well but she agrees from Sudha’s side. Sudha is not comfortable. Omkar understands Pishi Ma’s point. He says Pishi Ma is getting old but Sudha is not. She will come. Sudha is getting irritated. I will do what all I can do. Amma ji, Pishi Ma, Prabha and Sudha get up to go to the temple. Amma ji shares it with Madhvi. We are going to the temple to speak to the priest. Madhvi doesn’t want to leave the kids alone at home. Amma ji tells Maharaj ji to take care of the house in their absence. They also take Drishti with them. Omkar too offers to join them.
Gangaa cannot study anywhere. It is already 4:15 on.
Maharaj ji is going to the market to bring fruits and milk. He updates the maid (Mehri) but she is not paying heed, while washing clothes. Her phone rings. Mrs. Mishra asks her to come over. Mehri decides to leave right away. I will come back to do the rest of the cleaning.
Tiwari ji parks his scooter outside Chaturvedi House. Gangaa gets tensed as she hasn’t memorised the poem yet. How will I impress him? Yash shouldn’t have played the song so loud. Master ji will get upset. He will refuse to teach me!

Tiwar ji is still upset with Gangaa when he enters. Let’s go to the study. He begins to go upstairs when his feet stumble. He slips from the stairs. Gangaa looks at him wide eyed. She rushes to him. He is badly hurt and winces in pain. She helps him in sitting. His foot is bleeding. She removes his sandal. He tells her to call someone. Gangaa calls out for everyone, but there is no one at home. She goes to bring Sagar. He has locked his room. The volume is very high so he cannot listen to her calling out for him. Tiwari ji calls out for her again. She tells him that no one is home. He is unable to move. I must go to the hospital. Can I get a cloth to tie around my foot? She runs and grabs a dupatta. She stops him from tying the cloth. The bone has been hurt. Your leg is all blue. He asks her how she knows? She replies
that she knows. She recalls her Bappa tending to someone. A guy had got hurt. He had realised the same thing. the leg is all blue. His bone must be hurt. He had tied wooden sticks next to the wound so the bone stands upright. She runs upstairs to get some sticks. She takes Sagar’s cricket pads and heads downstairs. She very carefully places Master ji’s wounded leg between both and then ties them. He’s in so much pain. She also brings his glasses. Next she goes to call a rickshaw. Gangaa helps Master ji in walking. The rickshaw puller also helps them. Gangaa tells the rickshaw driver to drive really carefully. Avoid potholes. She runs in the front and guides them. Tiwari ji looks at her gratefully.
Amma ji and everyone returns home. They are discussing about the puja (Prayer). Prabha still feels that it is impossible to have peace in the house since Gangaa is here.
Sagar is scolding Yash. Who took the stuff out of my cricket kit? Everyone hears him shouting. They head upstairs. Maharaj ji and Mehri (The Maid) return just then. They both bicker with each other over their important works. Yash asks about Gangaa? She only takes Sagar’s stuff. I have seen her earlier taking your kit. Madhvi wonders why she would do so? Yash calls it revenge. Sagar adds that they were listening to music on high volume. She was not able to concentrate on studies. Prabha tells Amma ji not to spare Gangaa if she has really done it this time. Madhvi is not so sure Gangaa is behind it.
Gangaa enters with the cricket pads. They all see her. Yash calls her a thief. Sagar scolds Gangaa for ruining his cricket pads. Madhvi tells him not to shout so much. You can ask calmly. She asks Gangaa. Yash insists that she stole them to take revenge from Sagar. Gangaa declines. Prabha points out that she only had taken those pads. Omkar also says that Gangaa can only create loss / problems. Niru enters just then. Sagar complains to him against Gangaa. Tiwari ji walks inside just then. I will tell you. Everyone is taken aback to see him walking with the help of a stick. Gangaa is not at fault. Niru asks about his foot? Tiwari ji says anything could have happened, but Gangaa saved me. He tells the entire incident in mute. I had no idea she could be so smart. Doctors were also praising her. People forget everything in problems, but this girl saved me with her smartness. I would have been in big problem otherwise. He tells Sagar that he should be proud of his friend. Niru looks at Gangaa. Tiwari ji thanks Gangaa for saving him. I don’t know what would have happened to me. Niru tells Gangaa that he is proud of her. I knew you were smart. Everyone else is looking at them wide eyed. Tiwari ji agrees to teach Gangaa happily. I can never forget her favour. I will surely teach her. Gangaa gets happy. Niru agrees to send Gangaa to Tiwari ji’s house as from tomorrow. Tiwari ji wants to come over every day. Niru pats Gangaa’s cheek sweetly.
