Kaveri comes to see Babuji and tells him that she cannot take the
anguish of her husbands condition anymore. Babuji looks at her and
starts to talk in a wise manner and tells her metaphors about the
soul. He says that the soul lives forever leaving behind old bodies
and entering new ones, in the same way we shed clothes to wear new
ones. Kaveri understands what he is saying and she looks at him
shocked. Babuji says that ''the body is a bondage and the soul needs
liberation. Liberation. LIBERATION''. Kaveri is shocked furthermore
and she gets the point. She and Babuji are very saddened.
Babuji sits in his room reading the Bhagvat Gita aloud. Babuji reads
about the soul and how it should be released and old bodies
discarded. Iravati is on the bed and shes confused and tells him not
to say such inauspicious things. Babuji rubs in his point by giving
afew more quotes. Kaveri comes in and says that Pratik wants go
around the house and meet everyone (probably for the last time).
Babuji says that they can use Iravati's wheelchair. Iravati cries as
she thinks about her sons disability. Kaveri takes the chair and
goes to Pratik and proceeds to lift him into it.
Pratik is rolled into the prayer room by Kaveri to see Rimjhim. She
turns around is happy to see Pratik embracing life by going around
in a wheelchair. Pratik tells Rimjhim ''you always care about
everyones worries and never care for yourself''. Rimjhim smiles and
says your there to care for me. Pratik tells Rimjhim to take care of
Kaveri too. Rimjhim is confused and says ''bhaiya, why?''. Pratik
makes an excuse and says ''oh because shes always worried about my
condition''. Kaveri is weeping and Rimjhim wonders why shes weeping
and Pratik says dont worry she promises never to weep after
Pratik goes to see Rakesh in the main room. Rakesh is talking to
someone on the phone about business matters and is excited to see
Pratik going around in a wheelchair. Yashoda comes and asks Pratik
hows hes feeling. Pratik says that he doesnt feel anything lately.
That comment upsets everyone so Pratik says hes joking. Pratik asks
Rakesh if he remembers the time when he was a kid and had 10 rupees
missing. Rakesh vaguely remembers and says ''yes yes i had to walk
all the way home''. Pratik says he took that money. Rakesh laughs
and says ''u no my feet are still hurting from walking all the way
home that day haha''. Pratik also apologizes for the Amergoan
factory project that got messed up because of him and all the other
mistakes hes made when hes annoyed Rakesh. Everyones looking
saddened by Pratiks talks. Kaveri just looks dead.
Avinash is in his room. Malini and Durga are talking to Avinash.
Malini is asking Avinash if Durga can join Megha International.
Avinash shouts at her and tells her that if Durga-chacha wants to
join then he should say so himself. Malini says that he feels
hesitant. Durga says hes hesitant. Avinash is looking annoyed with
both them and doesnt like this sillyness and says of course he can
join. Pratik, Kaveri and Rimjhim come into the room. Avinash is
happy to see Pratik in a wheelchair and starts to applaud Rimjhim
for thinking of the idea but Pratik says that it was infact Kaveri's
idea. Avinash applauds her and they laugh as Pratik says ''she'l be
having me running tomorrow''. Avinash says that ''i myself will make
you run tomorrow!''. Pratik says no one knows what tomorrow will
bring, maybe nothing. Everyone becomes sad. Then Pratik says he was
joking and Rimjhim tells him not to make such jokes.
Pratik goes to see Babuji and Iravati in their bedroom. Iravati is
happy to see him going around the house in a wheelchair and she hugs
and kisses him. Pratik goes to Babuji and Babuji doesnt look at him
and instead says that he is reading the last verse of this chapter
of the Bhagvat gita. Babuji recites in Sanskruit. Pratik asks him to
translate. Babuji says that it means ''the body dies but the soul
never dies and is never reborn but lives forever''. Babuji hugs
Pratik. Rimjhim sadly but curiously looks on.
Pratik and Kaveri are enjoying a beautiful sunset when Pratik tells
her that he has deceived her in this life but in his next life he'l
be the best husband. He tells her that he wants to see her in a
bridal dress for the last time.
