Amma is moved into the house as everyone looks on. Rajju Pandey asks what the matter is and the doctor announces that it was caused due to a sudden hike in her blood pressure. He tells them that she is lucky that her condition isn't serious. Mitho thinks to herself and says that lucky Rhunjhun saved the old lady. Aloud she says she's grateful that all is well, but the doctor advises to keep Amma away from stressful situations. The mami's exchange looks with each other.
Amma wakes up and asks why Rhunjhun hasn't left yet. Abhi says not to worry about it. When Amma asks about his father, Abhi says that his father isn't so stern hearted that in this condition, he would send Rhunjhun away. Rhunjhun tells Amma that she was sending Rhunjhun away even though she can't live without her.
Rajju Pandey says its a good thing and Rhunjhun can remain in the house. Bantu says his wife Billo also suggested the same, and Billo chimes in. Abhi tells Amma that they shouldn't delay any further. As quickly as she can send the birth chart, they can set a date. Amma says she will send it in the evening. Abhi assures her everything will be well and Rhunjhun wipes the tears of her grandmother's eyes.
[CRYPT]In the evening, Amma takes out Rhunjhun's birth chart and says that with this hopefully Rhunjhun can lead a normal life, and not have to be troubled anymore. She asks for forgiveness for the lie. Rhunjhun comes in and tells her she is supposed to be resting. Amma tells her she was sick because Rhunjhun was leaving but now that Rhunjhun is with her she is fine. Rhunjhun tells her not to sweet talk her out of taking medicine. She tells Amma to take rest on the bed and hands her the medicine. After that Amma hands Rhunjhun her birth chart to hand to Abhi's father. Rhunjhun remembers her grandmother asking her to leave it int he river and questions her grandmother whether it is the same one.[/CRYPT]
Amma asks Rhunjhun if her faith in her grandmother is shaken, because before Rhunjhun would never ask her any questions. Rhunjhun says that it is not so. She says she only trusts her grandmother the most. Amma tells Rhunjhun that all she wishes is for her to be married happily and have a family of her own.
Outside the mamas and mamis are planning of sending Vishnu to Abhi's house with the birth chart. Kalsanwali says that the father keeps wanting to see the chart so when he sees this one he will be shocked out his mind. She boasts about her scheming mind and Vishnu rolls his eyes and says he knows. He's about to walk away with the birth chart when he crashes into Rhunjhun and both the birth charts fall down.
Rhunjhun apologizes to Vishnu, and Mitho distracts Runjhun by taking her aside and asking her if she's so excited about her marriage that she can't seem to keep her feet on ground. Rhunjhun shakes her head and says that she really didn't see anything.
Billo comes and takes Rhunjhun's hand and pretends to examine her to see if she didn't get hurt. Vishnu kicks one of the birth charts away and then Billo asks Rhunjhun if she was going somewhere. Rhunjhun informs them that she was going to deliver the birth chart, which then Vishnu picks up.
Kalsanwali comes and tells Rhunjhun how can a bride take her own birth chart. She says Amma must not be thinking right. She says that there are three uncles, and one of them can deliver it. She then tells Vishnu since he is the youngest, he can go and deliver it. He's about to leave when Amma, calls out to him. She says she will take the birth chart. All of them protest, and her eldest son, Rajju Pandey steps up and says he will do it since it doesn't look good that him being there his mother goes and delivers the birth chart.
Amma tells him to stop his "Me" chant, and if he was a parrot, he would have eaten her ears by his "Me" chant. She says she doesn't trust anyone of them otherwise she would have commissioned one of them earlier to take the chart. She walks to the door, and Abhi comes saying he came to collect the chart. Amma hands it to him, and both she and Rhunjhun see him out.
The mami's are happy that the chart is finally going to reach Rhunjhun's in-laws and as soon as they get the chart, all will be well. Amidst their expression of victory, Mitho questions whether the chart they sent was the one they made or the one Amma made. Kalsanwali is depressed and says all is in fate's hand. Mitho asks her if she truly doesn't know, and she says she really doesn't. Vishnu says they are in trouble.
Abhi's father is looking at the birth chart and says that such an unlucky girl, can't be the daughter-in -law of their house. He says that he can't commit such a tragedy. Abhi and his mom question what he means, and he says she's bad luck, and the boy she will marry will die within the first month. He says that no one will marry their son to a girl like that.
The mother says she doesn't want a girl like that and the father says he will break the relation right away. Abhi says that how can they deny a relationship based on what's written on a piece of paper. Abhi's father gets angry and says that Abhi is questioning him for the cursed girl. Abhi says he's not questioning but rather pleading ot reconsider, since it will affect Rhunjhun's life very adversely. His father says he doesn't care. He tolerated the girl when her name was ruined but to put his son's life in danger is out of the question.
Abhi says he is sorry but he won't let him break the relationship based on what's written on some piece of paper, that could be biased, based on the person writing it. Abhi's father gets agry and asks whether Abhi is renouncing his own father's profession as false. The mother tries to calm him and he says that how can his own son question what people have put their belief into for so long. Abhi says he's just saying that a girl's entire life can not be doubted for a piece of paper. He says even if he believes that Rhunjhun's husband will die after a month, does that mean all girls like Rhunjhun will stay unmarried.
Billo runs into Mitho the next day, and Mitho says that she has been worried all night that which birth chart reached Abhi's father. Billo says that she was worried about the same, and Kalsanwali hasn't said anything. Kalsanwali comes and says that if she hasn't said it yet, she can say it now. She says that she has the chart that Amma made so the accursed one they sent has reached Abhi's father and scared his wits out of him.
Buntu asks Vishnu what will happen about his store. Vishnu tells him that he's taking care of it. He's such a great lawyer that he's sure that they won't be able to take Buntu's store from him. He says all he needs to do is fill out a form and file it.
Rhunjhun comes with tea for Vishnu and Vishnu gets the idea to ask Rhunjhun to fill out the form.
Amma comes in asking where the servants are gone, and sees Rhunjhun filling out a form while Buntu and Vishnu direct her. She questions how come Rhunjhun is the one sitting and they both are standing. She questions Rhunjhun what is she doing.
Rhunjhun says that she is filling out the stay-order form for Buntu. Amma questions why is Rhunjhun filling it out. They all try to give excuses. Kalsanwali says its only a form not a weapon but Amma tells her to keep quiet. Rajju says it's because Rhunjhun's writing is clearer, but Amma doesn't believe him. She asks Buntu again, who stutters but doesn't give a definite answer.
Preview: Abhi's father comes and asks if they can arrange keep the wedding for next week. Amma is happy but all the aunts are shocked.
