A servant brings a letter to Gangaa. Radhika says her studies have finished and asks for her permission to go and play outside. Gangaa forbids her from going towards the forest. Gangaa reads the letter from Shiv, he had offered his help anytime through the letter to her. Gangaa thinks about writing a thanking letter. She writes that his suggestion really worked, she is now sure that not only the children, but women would also come to the school. Savitri calls Gangaa, she turns to go leaving the letter fallen on the floor.

Shiv enters the room and comes across Gangaa. He finds the reply of the letter lying on the floor and cheers up, finding it. He decides to only read it only when it has reached him the right way, he holds it worthy that Gangaa wrote a letter for him.

Radhika was playing in the terrace and was about to slip over, when a lady suddenly holds her. She asks why she came here, and what if someone sees her, then she would never be able to meet her again.

Gangaa had come to Radhika’s room to take the forgotten letter. She now comes calling Radhika. Radhika insists the lady leaves, before she’s caught. She goes away.
Gangaa goes to post the letter.
Radhika runs inside and hits Jhumki on the way. Jhumki brings a candle to the terrace and prays around. She was terrified as she watches the lady wandering inside their house and going towards Radhika.
Gangaa hears Jhumki’s scream and runs outside. She brings Jhumki inside. The doctor says she is unconcious because of a shock, as she might have seen something. Jhumki wakes up and tells Savitri she has seen a ghost upstairs, it seems it was Parvati! Radhika at once denies the possibility and says Jhumki is lying, she goes to the room. Shiv forbids Jhumki from saying such things ever again, as Parvati is a pure soul. Savitri makes up to Shiv that she is pregnant and might be getting illusions.

Gangaa comes to Radhika and asks her not to be afraid and not pay heed to what Jhumki says. Ghosts and souls are only illusions and don’t belong to the real world.

The next morning, Shiv comes to ask Savitri if she needs something from the city? Riya gives him a list as well. Gangaa comes out and tells Riya that she is going to pick Radhika up from school. Radhika comes home just then, and Gangaa asks why she came back so early? Radhika tells Gangaa that the grandmother of a girl in her school had died, so they got an off earlier. She goes inside cheerful, and tells Gangaa she got full marks in her exam.
Gangaa gets a call from her principal inquiring about Radhika’s health as she hasn’t been coming to school for the past few days.

Gangaa wonders why Radhika is lying to all of them and she remembers seeing her walking towards the forest. She thinks about talking to Shiv that Radhika is hiding something from them, but she gathers the courage to speak to Shiv about this matter, as there must be some reason to it, which has bern making Radhika lie to all of them to their faces.

At night, there was an heavy wind in the room. Radhika lay down in the bed.
Gangaa enters the room and shuts the window of Radhika’s room. She sits besides Radhika and tie her hand with a green cloth, then ties the other side of her cloth with her own hand and sleep there in a sitting position. Radhika was awake and aware of the development.
In the middle of the night, Gangaa hears Radhika speaking in her dreams, if she would come to meet her? Gangaa was worried and caresses Radhika thinking she must be crying during her sleep, missing her Parvati. Gangaa hears the lock of a door move and goes to look around. She shuts the door of Radhika’s room. Gangaa comes to the hall where the main door was banging due to the heavy winds. A lady passes from behind Gangaa towards a corner.

The phone bell began to ring. Gangaa picks up and hears it was Shiv who informed Savitri that he will stay in the village. He then notices it was Gangaa on the line, she replies it’s her. Shiv asks if everything is fine at home? Gangaa decides not to share anything about Radhika with him now. Gangaa notices a lady going upstairs in the dark and follows her. She (Gangaa) was walking across the corridor calling who is there? She comes to Radhika’s room and notices Radhika wasn’t there. Gangaa goes towards the terrace and watches Radhika going down the lane, she wonders where Radhika is going?

Radhika was running towards the forest with the lantern in hand. Gangaa follows her in the dark. Radhika stops by and speaks to a lady. Gangaa wonders who she’s speaking to? Radhika told a lady she had forbidden her from coming home, else they would never be able to meet again. Gangaa holds a wooden stick and moves towards them, And she was about to hit her when Radhika stops them. Gangaa was shocked to see Parvati facing them.

Parvati drops the lantern and runs away into the forest. Gangaa stood there in shock. Radhika forbids Gangaa from sharing this with anyone. She told her not to share this with anyone, or she would never meet her again! Gangaa takes her home with a promise that Radhika would never come to meet her alone.

In the room, Gangaa sat with Parvati’s photo remembering how Shiv and Radhika always missed her. She comes to Radhika’s room where Radhika was still asleep.

In the morning, RIya comes to Gangaa where she sat awake, lost in her own thoughts. Riya asks if everything is fine? Radhika signals to Gangaa not to share anything concerning that with them. Gangaa nods and goes outside with Riya. Radhika wish no one would know about the secret.

In the kitchen, Jhumki was worried what if her secret gets revealed someday? She wish to get saved somehow.
Gangaa and Riya come to the kitchen. Jhumki tells them she is really tired of working and asks for some help. She leaves to take rest while Gangaa and Riya turn to work. Riya watches Gangaa take spinach leaves and was about to pour a jug of water into the frying oil. She comes to stop Gangaa wondering what she is doing? Gangaa tells Riya she once told her to find her future and earth into this house now. Today, she has lost the earth under her feet today, how can she stay calm here? She comes to her room and speaks to Parvati’s photo about what the truth is, she wonders why is everyone mourning her if she is alive and if she is dead, then who is the lady in the forest? She thinks about taking care of Radhika anyway.

On the way, Shiv gets Kushal’s call about Gangaa’s letter. he promises to come home very soon, when he suddenly spots Parvati on the way. He wonders how this is possible? Shiv was in disblelief watching Parvati passing by. He undergoes a small accident and his car hits a nearby tree causing him, a forehead injury. He calls Kushal and calls him about the accident, he fainted in the middle of the call.

Gangaa comes to the place she had seen Radhika speaking to the lady. She wonders how she would find where that woman came from? She spots the ruins and decides to go there.

At home, Shiv returns injured. Riya was concerned. Shiv wonders who that lady could be? Shiv tells the family he has seen a shadow, it appears to be like Parvati, but how can she be; he himself did her last rituals.

Gangaa walks towards the ruins. She enters the house which contained a few utencils and a single bedding. She thinks this place isn’t as desserted as it appears from outside. A shadow appears in the door, but vanishes as she turns around. Someone places a hand over her shoulder. Gangaa turns around cautiously.

At home, Shiv asks about Gangaa? Kushal says she hasn’t seen her for sometime now, as well. Riya wonders if Gangaa also saw the same lady and was confused? Shiv was determined to find out who the stranger is. He asks Kushal to find out about Gangaa, and he himself leaves for the Police station to complain about the stranger. He gets into the jeep with Pratab.

Pratab was also shocked to see Parvati standing behind them, Shiv turns around to his astonishment, then moves towards the lady.
Gangaa appears from behind the lady. Shiv speaks to the lady that he is aware she isn’t Parvati. He inquires who she is? Gangaa tells Shiv this is Aasha, Parvati’s twin. Gangaa says they must tell Radhika instantly that she is Parvati’s sister. She takes her inside.

At home, Aasha hugs Radhika who was cheerful, sighting her. Everyone at home is shocked. Aasha apologizes to Radhika saying she isn’t her mother, she is her maternal Aunt.
