Radha is sitting crying besides Neha's body. Simran is sitting and shedding tears.
Simran is back in her own office and still shedding tears. She remembers Neha's words to her about the child.
Brian enters the room. He asks her if she wants to share something or talk something. She says she has lots to say but it is all locked inside her. He asks her to get it out. She tells him that she is feeling very guilty. She thought she will be able to save Neha. But she couldn't. He tells her that everyone knows she intended to save Neha. But sometimes things are out of their hands. She then tells him that they should talk about other things and enquires about Janet. He says that she is fine. She tells him that maybe they should do some more tests. He tells her to stop thinking about work and take some time off. He has arranged for Dr. Revathi to handle things in her absence. She is very grateful and tells him that he has handled things like Manas and she can trust him to the fullest.
Abhi is lying alone in bed and thinking about Neha and he gets up to look at her stuff in the cupboard. Then the phone rings and it is Saurabh from London. He gives his condolences. Tells him to control himself. Abhi is sobbing.
Saurabh comes back and his Sister and brother in law ask him if he managed to talk to Abhi. He says yes. They discuss Abhi's loneliness and perhaps his past was responsible for this state of his life.
Back to Abhi's house. Abhi's parents, Radha, Poonam are there. It is the 13th day. Simran comes in. Radha sees her come in and is upset. Simran enquires about how all are doing. They say fine except for Radha who lost her only daughter. Simran tells Radha not to have too much depression and that it is not good for her. Radha does not reply and asks for the child to be given to her for feeding. She enquires about Abhi and is told that he is closeted in the room. If she could go and talk to him. She is quite happy to do it.
Simran goes to Abhi's room and sits by his side. No words are exchanged. After a couple minutes, Abhi gets up and sits on the sofa. Simran goes to him and calls out to him and tells him to live with the realities of life. She tells him that the op was very difficult. She explains the entire situation to him and how she tried her best. Abhi is still shedding tears. He puts his hand over hers. He then tells her that he is to blame. She tells him that it is not his fault. But now he needs to look after his daughter. She asks him to come outside his room. He declines. She tells him that his parents are very worried and he needs to start living again. He wipes his tears and comes out.
Poonam is holding the child but he does not take her. Abhi is sitting besides Radha. She says that she wants to return to Nasik with the baby. Simran has a very disturbed look in her face. Abhi's mom asks her why she wants to leave them. She says that she has no ties to this city. And she does not have anyone besides Neha's child. She wants to spend the rest of her life taking care of the child.
Poonam asks Simran to speak. Simran says nothing. Poonam asks her that does this mean that she agrees with Radha's decision. Abhi's father tells her that they all must decide. But Poonam says that Simran will not say anything so she will have to do it herself. She tells them that Neha wanted Simran to be her child's mother and for Abhi and Simran to reunite.
