Gulaal and Kesar's eyes meet and Gulaal looks away. She tries to get up and sees that her foot is aching and calls out to Talli. Kesar hesitates but then goes towards her and tells her that he will massage her feet. Gulaal lets him but is in a lot of pain so pulls away. Kesar massages a bit and then gets up. He extends his hand to Gulaal and she gets up. Talli yells for Gulaal and Kesar and Gulaal go there. Talli is in the river splashing water. Talli laughs and says that they must be scared thinking that she fell in water. Kesar says that he was not scared; Talli asks him if he would not save her if she drowned, he replies that his clothes would get wet.
Talli takes Gulaal to a boat and both start rowing. A man washing clothes says that it is dangerous to send Gulaal and Talli by themselves, Talli says they don't need Kesar. Kesar cannot stop looking at Gulaal, the guy is truly smitten. Talli sees Kesar watching and says that he can still come, he refuses. Talli tries to catch Kesar's attention by jumping in the river. Gulaal feels terrified and yells out her name. She asks Kesar to help, he says that Talli is kidding and knows to swim. Gulaal cannot see Talli so jumps as well. Kesar sees it but doesn't do anything (he probably doesn't know Gulaal cannot swim). Talli comes up and looks for Gulaal, she yells out to Kesar to help since Gulaal cannot swim. Kesar runs and goes to save Gulaal. (Why couldn't Talli save her? She was much closer to her than Kesar). Together Talli and Kesar take Gulaal to the shore and towards the end Kesar carries her. The guy who initially asked Kesar not to let the two women go alone comes there and asks Kesar to turn her around and press the water from her stomach. Gulaal is still unconscious. The guy asks them to take her to the doctor.
They are all at the doctor's house, the doctor says that she will be fine and it is good that they brought her there so soon else her life would have been in danger. Gulaal will have fever and headache for the next few days. Kesar feels upset and goes out in anger. Talli goes to him and asks him if he is angry, he asks her why she was kidding so much, and despite knowing that Gulaal could not swim why did she have to make her sit in the boat and bring her here at all. Talli says that she wanted to make Gulaal happy. Kesar asks her what would they have told the family if anything had happened to Gulaal. Talli asks him if he is very worried about Gulaal, and if he is so worried why does he misbehave with her. Kesar says that he doesn't care about Gulaal, had it been anyone else he would have saved that person as well. Talli says fine, he doesn't care whether Gulaal lives or dies, Kesar yells at her for annoying him. He asks her not to try to open the wound of anger that is buried inside him for so many years, else nobody knows what will happen, and walks away.
Talli follows and says that what does he think, only he lived all these years in sadness, he has become so blind that he doesn't see others' problems. Why is he so angry, for going to the hostel? Why does he think that by sending him to the hostel they were happy? Gulaal used to cry so much when he didn't reply her letters, and she wouldn't eat for a few days when he refused to meet her. After so many years she was happy to see Kesar return but he stole even that from her. She asks Kesar why should she not bring Gulaal here, for so many years Gulaal has not been happy or been outside the house. Talli tells him that Gulaal is so lonely that she doesn't even have her own support, Gulaal doesn't have big desires but is happy with small things. She brought her here to give her happiness in small things. Gulaal comes there and asks Talli to leave it, Kesar is saying the right thing that he doesn't care about her. Talli says that is not true else Kesar would not have jumped in the river. Kesar says that he would have done that even for his enemy. Gulaal says its good he said it, and thanks him for saving her life. Gulaal asks Talli to stop arguing with him and let remain angry with her forever. Kesar says that he has a reason for whatever he did. Gulaal says maybe, but today if he trusts his reason more than Gulaal then fine, but Gulaal will not change because of it nor will her love change. For her he will always be the same Kesar who he has left behind. Gulaal goes inside.
Precap: Paan Baa asks Gulaal if she is fine, she looks pale and weak. Gulaal says that she fell in the water. Everyone gets up in shock. Talli says that she was just kidding and to save her Gulaal jumped in the river. Kesar looks on.
