Shiv exchanges his plate with Aashi. Radhika tells him not to eat as rice is not good, but he still eats. He finds it very spicy, but continues eating thinking Ganga has cooked for first time. Later, he goes from there. Radhika follows him and gives him water. She accepts that she was behind all this as she wanted to trouble Aashi. She apologises for it. He explains her that she shouldn’t do things like this that can hurt others. She knows Aashi can’t eat spicy food. She says she won’t do it again. Ganga is hearing all this. Radhika questions Shiv why he continued eating even after finding it spicy. He says he insulted Ganga for no reason and would hurt her more if he rejected food made by her. He tells her to go and eat. Radhika goes. Shiv sees Ganga standing there. He tells her he would
never be able to give her Parvati’s place, but promises that he would never disrespect from now.
Chachi is cleaning up. Radhika comes and says she still has to eat. Chachi tries to find out what happened earlier from her. She says food is not good, that is why Shiv left in middle. Radhika tells her everything that she made food spicy so Aashi gets angry at Ganga, but Shiv ate that food. She says it’s all her fault. Chachi fumes her against Ganga saying it was Ganga’s mistake. She could have removed some rice from Aashi’s plate instead exchanging. Ganga comes with food for Radhika. She gets angry and says she doesn’t want to eat. Food is not good. She leaves.
Radhika is crying and talking to Parvati’s photo. She says she will get lonely if Ganga snatches Shiv away from her.
While sleeping, Jumki kicks Pratap off the bed. Her husband gets mad. She apologises to him. Someone knocks the door. It’s Shiv. He tells Pratap to come outside. He wants to talk. Jumki wonders what Shiv wants to talk about.
Shiv tells Pratap there are mistakes in accounting. Pratap checks and says everything looks okay. It’s just 1000-2000 rps difference. Pratap says for him even 1 rps matter and says he will find out. He gets a call that Chotu is sick. He leaves to go to him. Pratap says tomorrow it will be last day for Shiv, then he will take his place.
Later when Shiv returns late night, Daima tells him he didn’t eat anything and asks him to eat before sleeping. He says he is not hungry. Ganga comes. Daima tells Ganga to give food to Shiv, but he says he is not angry and asks them to sleep. He leaves. Daima tells Ganga don’t know what Shiv punishes himself for after Parvati left. She tells Ganga to eat something as well, as she also didn’t eat. She too refuses.
In morning, Jumki is complaining she has to do all work even after new bahu came. Pratap comes there. Jumki asks why he got so ready.. he won’t be getting any attention. Pratap tells her to do her work.. time will tell who is ‘king’ him or Shiv.
Shiv is talking to his father’s photo. He takes blessings from him and says he will never be like him, but he will fulfill all his responsibilities, especially his responsibility for Ganga that his father gave him before passing away.
Ganga is getting ready. Daima is helping her. Ganga gets some rough memories from her past as she puts mangalsutra, sindhoor, etc. Daima gives her necklace and says all will recognise her as badi bahu. Daima goes for some work. Ganga is not able to close the hook of necklace. Shiv comes there and sees her struggling. He says he will send someone. Ganga says they don’t have time and asks him to do it. He hesitantly does it. Daima smiles seeing them.
