Gangaa Episode 23–24 Update on Thursday 25th January 2018

Sagar tells Ganga not to be sad after hearing what Mami said. Let’s play. She smiles and they go out to play. Sagar calls Yash as well but Yash has something going on in his mind.
The puja starts. As per the ritual, Pulkit is supposed to sit in Madhvi’s lap but he declines. I am not a kid. Amma ji advises him to sit ahead Madhvi then. Priest also agrees. Amma ji is waiting for Niranjan but knows that it can take time. Priest starts explaining the importance of the kalash and the puja.
Yash is not at all bowling happily which irks Sagar. Yash doesn’t want to play cricket as it is very hot. Sagar recommends scrabble but then thinks that Ganga will not be able to play it. Yash has an idea.
Sagar and Yash have blindfolded Ganga and they bring her inside. Sagar tells her to be careful. Dadi has told us not to go in between the puja or where everyone is sitting. Ganga cannot see anything. Yash says we will clap. You will follow us because of that sound. She nods. The game starts. Ganga counts till 10 while both the boys run to a different corner. Yash smiles thinking of his mother’s words. Ganga finishes counting. She tells them to clap. Sagar claps from one corner while Yash claps from the other side. Yash whispers something in Sagar’s ears. Sagar walks near Ganga, claps and runs away. Yash comes next and claps from the opposite side. He intentionally brings her to where the puja is going on. Ganga collides with the kalash by mistake and all the contents fall on the floor.
Amma ji everyone is shocked. Sagar gets out of hiding place. Amma ji scolds Ganga for ruining the puja. I had told you to play outside. Why did you come here then? Priest calls it a bad omen. Sudha asks Ganga what she is doing here. Amma ji tells her that her son who is a lawyer by profession but wants to do social service too, has brought her here. I had told him against it but he dint pay heed. See what she has done today. Sudha shares how Niranjan had fought with her for this girl Ganga. This girl refused to abide by any rules of our Ashram. She even disagrees with what is written in the scriptures. This is why I threw her out of the Ashram. I had no idea that I will get to meet this stubborn girl once again at your house. The thing to wonder is that your discipline, rules had no effect on her. she is still as stubborn as she was! We all (widows) had come with so much devotion to attend this puja. We sat at a corner so nothing goes wrong in your puja because of us but this girl ruined everything. Priest also repeats the same. Prabha also scolds Ganga. I had told you to stay away from the kalash. You are so naughty. You cannot sit at one place for long. Amma is the eldest person of this house yet she sat at a far corner but you came and hit the kalash only? Yash is all smiles. Sudha calls Amma ji a little careless. You would have understood what kind of a girl she is then why dint you make her understand that she doesn’t have to be around this place? Being a widow you adhere to all the rules so strictly then you could have taught something to her as well. Your name has been maligned after all. Prabha is clearly enjoying the situation. We respect you and even try to follow you but what will others understand if the traditions are not getting followed at your home itself! Other ladies also agree with Sudha. It is entirely your mistake. You are changing a little too much with time. You changed the rules for your grandson, we kept quiet, but now this is too much. The ladies decide to leave and even refuse to take Prasad.
Niranjan enters just when all the ladies are going out. It means the puja is over? He stops in his tracks when he notices Sudha and other widows at his house. Everyone looks at him. he apologizes to his mother for being late. I tried to come earlier but could not! Is the bhog also done? He finds everyone all quiet and is curious. Why is everyone standing quietly? Sudha tells Amma ji that you should not forget that this girl (Ganga) has brought insult to you and your family today. I am worried that if she stays here only then it will become a problem for you to live in the society with respect. Sudha leaves with all the other ladies. Prabha too fills Amma ji’s ears against Ganga. I am feeling bad for Pulkit. He did the ritual but could not get anyone’s blessings. Niranjan is all the more confused. Did anyone do any mistake? Amma ji walks up to Ganga, holds her hand and takes her inside with her.
Ganga pleads her to let go as it is paining. Everyone follows them. Niranjan wants to know what Ganga’s mistake is. Amma ji blames Ganga for everything. You are a widow. I will teach you what a widow’s life is and how to live it. Madhvi tries to say something but Amma ji tells her to be quiet. I listened to everything that you all said but now I cannot let you continue this adharma. Now that you have brought the girl to my house then I will set things right with her. I will guide her my way. She repeats to Ganga that she is a widow and will remain so till the end. Everyone said so much to me because of you. She marks a dot on Ganga’s forehead using Chandan. Ganga starts crying. Everyone is pained to see her thus. Ganga looks at Niranjan and Madhvi. She even tries to reach out to Babu but Amma ji pulls her back. Niranjan tells her not to be so harsh with a little girl. Amma ji makes it clear to him that Ganga is not a girl but a widow. I gave in to your demands and allowed her to stay here but it doesn’t mean that she will dance on my head. Niranjan still tries to explain but she is not in a mood to listen to anyone else. I wont take her life but she will have to learn all the rules. I tried to teach her everything so many times but she doesn’t want to. I will have to be strict with her then. prabha agrees with Amma ji but goes quiet when her husband looks at her pointedly. Amma ji tells everyone that Ganga will stay in her room from today onwards, under her vigilance.

I will teach her all the rituals, rules that a widow follows. If anyone is feeling love for her then books my ticket for Haridwar. Niranjan gets angry but she warns him to talk to her in lower tone. Madhvi takes him upstairs. Ganga cries out to Madhvi too but in vain. The kids too leave from there. Prabha is happy to see Ganga in vain. Ganga tries to go but Amma ji holds her hand tight. Enough of your drama! Now you are in my hands. Don’t dare to go out of this room without asking me. She tells Maharaj ji to bring Ganga’s stuff in her room. Ganga continues to cry. Amma ji too sits down on the floor and holds her head sadly.

Niranjan paces in the balcony angrily. Madhvi tells him that if he will counter with whatever Amma ji says then she will feel that you don’t listen to her. she has been saying from the beginning that this Upnayan should happen smoothly. She has explained it to Ganga too. She should have understood. All this would not have happened if she had not come running to the place where the puja was going on. I don’t think Amma ji is wrong in being upset with Ganga. She only wants Ganga to be a little disciplined. What’s wrong in that? She has even scolded Pulkit and Sagar too for this. Niranjan is not against discipline, but strictness is good up to a limit only. I am scared that Amma ji might become stricter than it is required with Ganga. Ratan is sure it wont happen. Madhvi Didi will take care of Ganga. Madhvi nods. Leave all this matter for me. Amma ji will feel that her son is answering her back because of Ganga. Niranjan agrees. But it is your responsibility now, make sure Amma ji doesn’t trouble Ganga while trying to teach her rituals / traditions. He asks for a tea as he is having headache.
They hear Amma ji scolding Maid for mixing all the utensils together (normal and puja). She even scolds Maharaj ji for being too slow in folding Ganga’s bedding. He drops Ganga’s bangles on the floor. Amma ji tells the maid to throw away all the stuff. Ganga tells them all to stop. Bappa had brought them for me. No one will dare to even touch them. They all look at her in amazement. She picks up all the bangles herself. Sad title track plays as Ganga recalls the unfortunate day when her Bappa left her. Amma ji also stands there quietly all this while. Ganga next picks up the kalash (of ashes of her Bappa) and keeps it on a side table. She picks up her bag on her own and goes inside Amma ji’s room.
Sagar is worried about Ganga. Dadi is very angry with her. Pulkit says Ganga made a mistake. Why did she have to play near the puja kalash? Sagar replies we were playing in the hall only. I don’t know how she reached there. He looks at Yash and recalls Yash guiding him about where to hide (while they were playing during the puja). Ganga was blindfolded. Tell me the truth. You had told me to hide behind the sofa. Yash declines making Ganga go to the puja place. I dint do anything. Sagar asks again but Prabha comes there just then. Pulkit stops Sagar from saying anything. Yash too diverts the topic and hurriedly leaves with his mother. Pulkit knows that Prabha always supports her son. There was no use telling her. We are not sure about it. Sagar is sure Yash is behind it as he doesn’t like her. Pulkit feels bad for Ganga. I am sure mom will take care of her.
Madhvi is making mathri’s. Maharaj ji praises her cooking. She tells him to call the kids for lunch. Tell Sagar to call Ganga too. Maharaj ji leaves. Maid comes to give Madhvi her phone. Prabha Bhabhi is on line. Prabha complains to Madhvi about what Niranjan did at the railway station yesterday. Rashmi might have called her father (who is Ratan’s boss) and he would have stopped the promotion order. Your brother is so dedicated. He works day and night to make things happen but this time Niranjan ji ruined everything. Madhvi feels bad for her brother, but those people were at fault. Prabha feels NIranjan ji could have been a little more practical. Ganga has met him 4 days back and he forgot all his old ties? He scolded other people for a stranger (Ganga). Who causes harm to your loved ones for a stranger? I had thought it would be better if my husband’s salary increases but why to blame Ganga when destiny is not in our favour! She ends the call. Maharaj ji returns and finds Madhvi lost in thoughts. He takes over from henceforth.
Pulkit and Sagar come downstairs. Sagar goes to call Ganga. She is making a garland. He knocks at the window pane but Ganga signals her that Amma ji is here. Ganga asks for her permission but Amma ji signals her to be quiet so she can continue her puja. Amma ji falls asleep in between her puja. Ganga smiles hearing her snores. Ganga cross checks that Amma ji has indeed fallen asleep and then very carefully goes out of the room. Why did you call me here? Amma ji has strictly told me not to go out of the room. Sagar tells her about what mom has cooked. She is tempted and hungry too. They go to eat.
Niranjan is discussing about the case with Raghav ji. Madhvi comes inside and sits on his chair. Rahgav ji notices her. He tells Niranjan that maybe she has to talk to you regarding something. Niranjan tries to divert her but she insists that it is very important. Raghav ji excuses himself. Madhvi says Ratan bhaiya’s promotion was stopped. He had no idea about it. She remarks that he will only know about other things if he looks beyond his files and court. He deduces that her mood is off. Your brother’s promotion stopped, right? He is not his boss. Be glad that I dint send them (Gupta’s) to jail or if anything would have happened to Ganga then! Madhvi asks him if Ganga is everything for him now. It doesn’t matter if anyone else is there or not, right? I have only one brother. He has a responsibility of a wife and son. He is a very hard working man. Niranjan straight away asks her what she wants. She says you know so many people. Why don’t you get Ratan Bhaiya’s promotion done (through your contacts)? He declines. I cannot recommend anyone. She reasons that she has always supported him. I am only making a small request. Recommendation is against his values. She understands his values and respects them too but cannot take it if her brother’s happiness is affected because of it. I wouldn’t have asked for your help if that Ganga had not come in between all this. He asks her why she is bringing the little girl in all this. What’s her fault? Madhvi shakes her head. it is my mistake actually that I expected something from you. She walks out of the room.
Pulkit and Sagar fight for mathri’s. Ganga looks on happily. My Bappa used to tell me that my Maiyya used to cook very tasty mathri’s. She excitedly holds the mathri given to her by Maharaj ji but Amma ji holds her hand in time. I closed my eyes for puja and you ran out of the room. She even keeps the mathri back in the plate. It is fried. A widow cannot eat anything past evening time.
Precap: Amma ji has brought food for Ganga as she was hungry. Ganga wants to eat what Madhvi has made for her. Amma ji tells her that she wont get to eat anything till tomorrow if she doesn’t eat now. Ganga looks at the plate full of fruits.
