Riya awaited Gangaa at the door step. Kushal comes there, Riya shares with Kushal she shouldn’t have let Gangaa leave home.
A lady comes to tell them Gangaa was walking towards the forest, worried. Kushal suggests they must leave Gangaa alone for some time, he will go and bring her back himself, if she doesn’t return after a while.
Gangaa sits up again to finds a stuffed toy there. She thinks this belongs to Radhika, but how does it get here? She calls Radhika and looks around for her. She finds a piece of saree along with the toy.

Back home, In the room, Gangaa comes to Radhika with the toy and asks if this is her toy? Radhika says her friend, Namrita also plays with it, she doesn’t look towards Gangaa and asks her to find her tie.
Shiv enters the room, Gangaa’s saree gets tucked with Shiv’s watch. Gangaa thinks she would never be able to get well again. Shiv thinks he really hurt Gangaa.
Kushal comes to Shiv with some papers for signatures. He says Gangaa knows everything now, why these misunderstandings? Shiv says Gangaa would never forgive him for hiding the truth from her. Kushal says Shiv, now has to become Gangaa’s courage (strength).

Savitri comes to Jhumki who was crying. Jhumki says they must all practice to get to Gangaa’s feet, as she knows her daughter is dead and she returned to rule this house and they must apologize to her before she throws them all out of the house!

Shiv watches Gangaa sit in the kitchen, lost in thoughts. He thinks he can’t let her waste herself this way. Riya comes to him. Shiv asks for her help, he thinks they must send Gangaa closer to the kids in the Math (hermitage). She would be happy while teaching, playing and spending time with the kids. Riya assures him, that she would speak to her.

Gangaa comes to the Math (hermitage) and watches the children playing in school. She thinks she must find a peace of mind in these children. The children get to their seats as they watch Gangaa arrive. Gangaa takes attendance. A boy tells Gangaa that a child, by the name, Gopal would not come, as his mother isn’t ready to give him money for book. Another girl tells Gangaa about her friend that her mother won’t allow her to study. Ganga thinks about speaking to the ladies.

Later, Gangaa tries to convince the ladies that they must also come to the Math(hermitage) for an hour and study there. She thinks only Shiv can make these ladies up.

In the Village Council, Gangaa stands up and raises her issue. She discuss that many women feel that study is useless for their children, and she wish the women attend her classes, but the ladies fear they won’t get permission from their husbands. The village head says this is a personal decision, and if Gangaa had to raise an issue, she should have sent the MathaDesh (head of the hermitage) here.
Shiv arrives. The village head says it’s not a difficult task for the MathaDesh to solve a petty issue at home, then why call the Village council for it? Gangaa leaves. Shiv thinks he will surely send her rge solution to the problem.

At home, Gangaa was cleaning Radhika’s room when she finds Parvati’s photo. She speaks to it promising she would always take care of Radhika just like she had loved Krishna. She notices soil and leaves on the floor and on the bed. Radhika says she was playing outside and forgot to wash her hands and feet, she lay down and hurry to sleep. Gangaa sits besides Radhika and asks if everything is fine? Radhika says everything is fine and asks Gangaa to turn the lights off. Gangaa notices that Parvati was wearing the same saree in the photo as she found in the forest. Gangaa sits beside Radhika and wait for her to sleep.

Riya comes across a servant who drops a letter. The servant says it’s a letter for Gangaa. Riya takes the letter and calls Gangaa. Radhika asks Gangaa to turn the light off before going.

Gangaa goes to Riya. Gangaa takes the letter and goes to read it, it was Shiv’s letter who advised her to teach the ladies about household, calculations, recipes and other matters. Gangaa smiles wondering who her well-wisher is? Shiv stood behind thinking this was the best way to convey his message to Gangaa.

Radhika runs towards the forest when she comes across a lady with lantern. She calls her mother but the lady runs into the forest. Radhika follows her.
Gangaa wonders who sent her the letter?
Radhika runs across the street back home and climbs the ladder towards her room.

Gangaa comes into her room and finds her lying in bed, not asleep yet. She notices soil and torn leaves on the floor and thinks she had just cleaned the room, so where did this soil come from? Radhika watches Gangaa through the corner of her eyes.

The next morning in the kitchen, Jhumki and the Savitri were in the kitchen. Jhumki goes to bring the Priest in, and Riya tells Savitri that Jhumki isn’t expecting. Savitri scolds her for trying to fill her ears against her daughter-in-law and told her not be jealous of Jhumki.

There, Gangaa comes to Radhika’s room. She notices a drawing on her sketch book where Radhika was shown with her mother. She thinks Radhika is behaving really strange, there is surely something going on in her mind.
She comes downstairs to Shiv but a servant comes to speak to him. Another servant brings Gangaa a book and informs her that the kids are waiting for her in the school. Gangaa leaves for Math as Shiv was busy.

Gangaa welcomes the children at school. Their mothers had come to drop the kids there. Gangaa begins her class with ‘household’. She speaks to children about various cooking methods and calculations. A lady comes there and asks Gangaa if she is teaching the children to cook? Gangaa says she has brought the recipe of a salad and offers the ladies to join as well. She was happy that she will be able to teach the ladies this way.

Shiv watches Gangaa teach the kids and the ladies successfully.
Jhumki sits for the prayer. The priest suspects this house surely has some ill shadow, and he does a prayer against it.

After the class, a lady asks Gangaa’s permission to let her take her daughter home, as girls shouldn’t be left to wander alone. Gangaa thinks about Radhika going to the forest, and thinks she didn’t get time to speak to Shiv about Radhika.

The Priest asks Jhumki to light a candle on the terrace. Shiv had arrived by then, the Priest takes a left.
Gangaa comes inside. Jhumki also comes outside and sits in a corner, Savitri tells her to come inside. Jhumki and Savitri leave.
Riya asks Gangaa if she also wants something as Shiv is going to the city. Shiv wonders what if Gangaa dislikes his offer and leaves. Gangaa thinks he didn’t even ask her for once. Riya says to Gangaa that Shiv has really changed since he returned to the city, he speaks less to anyone. Gangaa tells Riya she wanted to speak to him about Radhika, but she would now manage by herself. She leaves to take Radhika.

Radhika was walking towards the forest. Gangaa comes from behind and asks where she’s going, as there is no route towards home here. Radhika says someone told her about a way from here, and asks why Gangaa came to take her? Gangaa says she would be the one to start picking and dropping her in school as of now. Radhika looks towards a ruin house, desserted in the forest. Radhika leaves the other way, but Gangaa looks towards it suspectedly.

Jhumki watches a medical attendant, aware of her case and wonders what if he reveals the truth about her pregnancy? He stops to inquire about her health, Jhumki scolds him in return to save her life!
