Jamna Kaki says that the only way to remove Gulaal's ghost from Dushyant's mind is to make Gulaal and Kesar one. Her husband says that he doesn't understand, she says that she knows exactly what she is saying and knows what to do.
Gulaal, Talli, and Paan Baa are in the kitchen cooking. They talk about how everyone likes different things in the house and so they make different vegetables. Gulaal makes tea for Paan Baa. Talli says that Gulaal is making everyone's favorite dish, what about her (Gulaal). Gulaal says that she likes what everyone likes, and she gets more pleasure from feeding others. Paan Baa's hand is aching and Gulaal insists that she rest, Gulaal will bring her tea and massage her back.
Paan Baa is in her room applying medicine when Kesar comes there and says that he will apply it for her. She says that he should not be late for work, Mota Bha has a lot of expectations from him. Kesar says that Paan Baa is more important for him and applies. She asks him why he did not take Gulaal with him to her parents' place. He says that he did not think it was necessary. She says that he has no idea how much she prepared to go there and how much she was looking forward to it. He says that they live nearby, Gulaal can go whenever she wants. Paan Baa says that this is not the city, it is a village, women cannot go whenever they want to visit parents, what Kesar did was wrong and he has no idea how much Gulaal has sacrificed for the house and they should not behave in this manner with her. Kesar says that so he has to pay for her sacrifices. Paan Baa scolds him.
Jamna Kaki comes there and complains that Kesar is serving Paan Baa, but her son has no time for his mother, and Jamna Kaki has gotten no satisfaction from her sons or daughter-in-law, on the other hand Kesar is doing the work of a son and daughter-in-law when in actual Kesar's wife should serve Paan Baa. Gulaal comes there with tea. Jamna Kaki tells Kesar that his wife has a long life, she was talking about her and she appeared. She asks Kesar to let his wife serve her mother-in-law. (Jamna Kaki keeps referring to Gulaal as "your wife"). Kesar leaves for the factory. Paan Baa sends Gulaal to help Talli in the kitchen. Jamna Kaki says that she will apply the medicine. She asks Paan Baa whether she is not worried about the future, Kesar is trying to go farther from Gulaal, and that they will have to make both of them one before Kesar takes the wrong path and Kesar gets so far away from Gulaal that it becomes impossible to bring him back. Paan Baa says that she worries a lot but doesn't know what to do, Gulaal married Kesar thinking that she would marry Kesar to someone of his age. Jamna Kaki says that Gulaal wanted to support the family which is why she said that, but now times have changed and Gulaal needs support, they have seen her in the house but not in the darkness of her own room. She says that Gulaal has kept her sorrows hidden inside herself and never tells anyone about her sadness, if today Kesar becomes someone else's who will marry Gulaal given that she was a widow and is married through deeyarvattu. Jamna Kaki asks her to think about it and leaves.
Talli is in Jamna Kaki's room folding clothes. Jamna Kaki asks her why she is there, she says that her clothes were dry and since it was very windy she thought of keeping Jamna Kaki's clothes. She tells Talli that how many times has she told her to not touch her things and not enter her room. She asks Talli to leave rudely. Sudha comes there and Talli leaves. Sudha asks Jamna Kaki why she is so rude to Talli, Talli has been living here for so many years. Jamna Kaki says that it does not change who she is, if Talli's own relatives did not support her she came to their place, and now that she is grown up she is not leaving and still staying here. Sudha says that just as she has thought of Talli as her daughter Talli thought of this family as hers. Sudha says that Talli is her reason for living, and she came in her life when everything was falling apart. Jamna Kaki blames Sudha for everything including Raman's separation, and tells Sudha that she should not forget that she will forgive and forget. Sudha expresses surprise that even after all these years Jamna Kaki still thinks that it is Sudha's fault despite everything that Raman did. Jamna Kai defends Raman and says that he is immature but Sudha should have shown maturity and could have shown him the right way as his wife, or told Jamna Kaki or the family but she had do this on her own. Sudha defends herself and says that she has gone through a lot and it is not easy to see her husband in prison. She asks Jamna Kaki what she would have done, tolerated her husband's infidelity? She says that she has Talli as a daughter and has the right to have her love. Jamna Kaki says that the person Sudha thinks is a boon is actually a curse, one day because of Talli there will be a storm in the house that is beyond Sudha's imagination.
Talli is in her room sad and Gulaal comes there. She tells Gulaal about Jamna Kaki and Gulaal tells her to leave it, she will apply oil in Talli's hair. Talli comes around and says that she will apply hair oil for Gulaal because Gulaal is always doing things for everyone. Talli asks Gulaal what she likes, Gulaal laughs at the question. Talli says that Gulaal is so busy with everyone else's preferences that she herself doesn't know what she likes. That morning when Talli asked Gulaal what would she like to eat, Gulaal was not able to answer and instead tried to find her preferences in other's. Talli insists that Gulaal should tell her what she likes or misses in the whole world. Gulaal says that she likes looking at flowing water, Vasant used to take her to the riverbank, sitting with feet in the flowing water for hours. As a kid she used to roam farms in winter, and play around mango trees in summer and eat raw mangoes. Now she likes this house and has no idea about what goes on outside and has no need to know. Gulaal has tears in her eyes and asks Talli to sleep and that she is also sleepy.
Precap: Kesar talks to a cop about opening Vasant's case and says that based on the details it doesn't seem like a simple accident case. The cops asks him why. He says that the police report says that the truck hit the jeep three times, why will a truck hit three times in an accident? (I cannot believe the cops did not figure that out and intelligent Kesar had to point it out).
