Mota Bha and the family are talking about how good a match Jamna's niece has found, who is getting married and the family has to attend the wedding. Gulaal, Talli, and Kesar come there and Mota Bha asks them to get everything ready to leave the next day. Gulaal coughs and Paan Baa comes to her with concern. Gulaal says that she is fine, Sudha persists that she looks unwell and who's shawl is she covering herself with. Gulaal says that she fell in water. Everyone looks on in shock and Mota Bha asks her what happened. Gulaal tries to make an excuse and Talli says that it was her fault, she was kidding and to save her Gulaal jumped in the river. She narrates the whole event and expresses regret. Jamna scolds her as to why did she have to make such fun that puts someone else's life in danger. Gulaal asks her to leave it, but Jamna says that what if something happened, Sudha says that nothing happened to Gulaal and they should let it go now. Jamna goes on and Mota Bha asks her to stop. He tells Talli that there is a time and place to have fun, but it should not be accompanied by carelessness. Talli apologizes and says that it will not happen again. Gulaal says that Kesar and Talli saved her. Mota Bha tells Kesar to stay ready the next day to go to the wedding and not forget, he asks Gulaal to rest and take her medicines.
Kesar goes to his room and flashbacks to Talli's words about Gulaal's sadness and skipping meals when Kesar was in the hostel and his refusal to meet her, and how he snatched her happiness away. He thinks back to all the times he was rude to Gulaal and turned her away. He then thinks back to Gulaal's words where she says that despite his behavior her love will never change, and he has tears in his eyes.
The next morning Jamna and Paan Baa prepare to leave and pack a lot of gifts. Jamna asks where Gulaal is and Gulaal comes there. Paan Baa asks her to rest but she refuses. Talli is quiet with guilt. Gulaal says what had to happen happened, she should let it go. Sudha asks Talli to let her know if she likes anything among the gifts, Sudha will get the same stuff for her. Jamna makes faces. Gulaal sneezes, Paan Baa asks her to rest, Gulaal says that she will be fine after drinking Talli's tea. Jamna says that she doesn't like Talli's tea at all, she makes it so bland (sugarless). Sudha says that she likes Talli's tea as well, Jamna says that then Talli must make it bad for Jamna on purpose due to some enmity, Sudha says that Talli has no knowledge of what enmity means and loves everyone without any discrimination. Gulaal tells Talli not to forget her tea.
Gulaal's mother removes a clothing from her closet and gets emotional, her husband asks what happened. She says that is worried about Gulaal's future, she had purchased the clothing for Gulaal but Kesar did not even bring her home. She asks her husband whether Kesar upholds and respects his relationship with Gulaal and if he will support her in future. He asks her to stop worrying so much, she says that she is scared and being Gulaal's mother understands her sadness. She tells him that she wants to meet Gulaal and asks him to take her there. He says that they should not go to Gulaal's in-laws place so frequently. She says that she thinks something is wrong and needs to meet Gulaal, else she will not have peace. He agrees to take her in the evening.
Mota Bha asks Paan Baa to tell everyone to get ready to leave so they can return soon at night. She thinks that Kesar does not feel like going to the wedding. He asks her why, this is not about feeling, it is about being there with the family. He has returned after so many years, what will society say, God knows what is going on in Kesar's mind. He asks Paan Baa to call Kesar so he can speak to him. Paan Baa hesitates. He asks where he is. Paan Baa says that he is not at home since morning and told them that he would be late, they should not wait for him. Mota Bha gets angry.
Kesar is sitting near a river reading his letter to Gulaal that he did not post. He questions his actions, he waits for her letters but cannot get himself to write back and meet her, on one hand he misses her a lot, on the other hand he cannot even be near her, he misses his happy moments with her but then remembers the conversation about Vasant's death. He thinks how should he figure out what the truth really is. He reads that she used to say that once he grows up he will understand the world, but till that happens will he have to remain in this misery. Kesar is reading all this in his letter and crying. He goes on that he doesn't understand why he is so angry at her, yet he misses her so much that he feels like crying, when she is in front of him he cannot approach her but when she is not his eyes search for her. He wonders why that is.
Gulaal gives Talli her bangles and praises her looks. Talli seems very down, and Gulaal tells her that when she gets married she will like bangles. Talli says that she doesn't want to marry the "angry man" Kesar, everytime he is angry. Gulaal says that his anger is with Gulaal, not Talli. Talli says that that is the problem, Gulaal does so much yet he has no appreciation. He should marry such a girl who is angry and arrogant like him. Gulaal asks where they will find such a girl. Talli says that she will tell the matchmaker/woman who came to their place the day before to find such a girl for Kesar. Gulaal asks which woman. Talli tells her that the woman had come to meet Jamna. Jamna comes there and asks Gulaal to get the clothes from the terrace. Jamna asks Talli what she was telling Gulaal about her, who is she to keep track of what Jamna does, and she should leave her habit of gossiping, and if her son does not get his share of happiness then Talli will be responsible. Talli tries to explain but Jamna gets more angry and tells her that Talli has grown up on the family's favor and is not a part of the family but a burden, she was, is and will remain an orphan. Talli feels hurt and cries.
Precap: Gulaal is in bed with a cooling pad on her forehead. Kesar is sitting next to her. She asks Kesar where he was, he says that he was out with friends. She says that she did not ask that, and smiles through her tears.
