Gangaa Episode 25–26 Update on Friday 26th January 2018

Amma ji keeps the mathri back in the plate. It is fried. A widow cannot eat anything past evening time. Sagar and Pulkit request her to let Ganga eat one mathri atleast but Amma ji tells them to be quiet in this matter. She scolds Maharaj ji next. She takes Ganga with her back to her room. The kids continue to request her but in vain. They then approach Madhvi for help. Madhvi tells them to wait but the kids continue to pester her. She shouts at Sagar angrily. Dadi has said no so it will be the right thing only. She is elder to us and much more experienced. Pulkit is concerned about Ganga which irks Madhvi. I cannot argue with Amma ji for that Ganga. I have no right to question her on anything. Pulkit and Maharaj ji are very much shocked by her reaction.
Amma ji pushes Ganga on the floor, telling her to sit there quietly. You wont move from here till I tell you to. Ganga tells her that she is hungry. Amma ji gives her a plate full of fruits and sattu. Ganga refuses to eat all that. I want to eat what Madhvi ji has made for her. Amma ji sits down in front of her and holds her cheeks. I have told you so many times widows don’t eat all that after the sunset. Ganga reasons that one still feels hungry after sunset. Amma ji replies that it is written in the scriptures so they have to abide by it. Ganga questions it. Why can’t I eat it when Sagar and Pulkit Bhaiya can eat it after sunset? Is it because I am a widow? Amma ji is rendered speechless / stunned for a minute but then she nods in agreement. It is because you are a widow. Ganag holds her hand as she gets up. She very sweetly says that this is wrong. Bappa used to say that everyone is equal for God. Does God hate widows? Amma ji is indeed shaken by her innocent questions but she dismisses them. Why do you have to argue with elders all the time? You will have to remain hungry if you don’t want to eat it. I don’t want to malign my dharma by falling for your words. If you don’t eat now then you wont get to eat anything till tomorrow. Ganga looks at the plate. She picks it up and keeps it back in its place. Amma ji looks at her in amazement. Ganga goes and sits down near the window. Amma ji mistakes it for Ganga’s arrogance. Stay hungry!
Sagar asks his brother of Ganga will remain hungry for the whole night. Wont Dadi also let her eat? She has not eaten anything since morning. Should I tell Maharaj ji? Pulkit shakes his head. Dadi has told all of us not to say anything. Sagar and Pulkit wonder what has happened to their mother. Only she could help Ganga. She always used to support Ganga but don’t know what happened to her today. Is she also upset with Ganga?
Madhvi is talking to Ratan. She feels bad for him but he is all calm. I will get promoted next year, if not this year. There’s no big deal about it. Please don’t worry about me. They end the call. Maharaj ji asks Madhvi about her mood. You look tensed. She denies. he asks for the key to the storeroom but she takes the container (of mathri’s) from him. you can go and check the main door if it is properly locked or not. He leaves. She keeps the jar in the storeroom and locks the door from outside.
Prabha gives bills to Ratan that are overdue. We haven’t paid them for the last 2 months. I wont stay in this house if the electricity is cut. Yash enjoys watching them. Ratan asks her as to why she has not paid them till now. She replies that she doesn’t have money. He gives her his entire salary as soon as he gets it. She complains that it isn’t much. I know how hard it is to run this house with such a meagre amount. What do you get by working so hard (and honestly)? He tells her to manage the house with whatever he earns. We can curb the extra expenses (on cosmetics, etc). She starts her drama. I cannot see my little son yearning for every small thing. She starts her acting and calls out for Prince. You wont eat ice cream from tomorrow onwards. She signals Prince to leave when her drama has a desired effect on Ratan. He says I cannot do anything, even my promotion got postponed. She suggests him to talk to Madhvi. Niranjan ji is a very big lawyer. He will recommend you and you will get a very good job, with good salary and we will be rich. Please stop being so honest. He refuses to cheat and earn or be a corrupt man. I will neither ask Jija ji for a recommendation nor will he ever agree for it. She tells him to live with his values then. why care about your wife and son! Brother (Ratan) never says anything while the sister can do a lot yet she wont do anything. She is living an easy life.
Amma ji is snoring at night. Ganga feels very hungry. She decides to drink water to satisfy her hunger. She moves around quietly yet Amma ji’s sleep is disturbed. Don’t make noises and ruin my sleep. Ganga drinks water and then lies down again.
Niranjan tells Madhvi to make breakfast early tomorrow. He has a meeting lined up in the morning regarding a very big and important case. It is one of a kind person, they fix appointment based on the stars. Madhvi says you meet and help such people yet you cannot do anything for my brother. He replies that people respect him for what he does. It is what I do, it is my work. People don’t call it a favour. If I take someone’s help today then I will have to make a compromise with my idealstomorrow. She drops the matter but he explains that he too will have to pay a price for seeking help from someone. People might force me to prove the wrong thing right. She calls it his excuses. He gives up and then switches off the lights. She watches it all quietly and is in tears.
Ganga is still hungry. She thinks of the time when her Bappa was cooking Malpue for her.

She was equally hungry that day too. He had reasoned that it takes time to cook Malpue so you will have to wait. She talks to her stomach. You will get to eat something good tomorrow morning. She clutches onto her stomach and lies down. Sagar flashes torch on her. He signals her to come out but she points out at Amma ji. He insists so she goes out stealthily.

She asks him why he called her outside at this hour. why dint you sleep yet? He replies that he couldn’t sleep as she had not eaten anything. She is surprised and happy to find out that he dint sleep because he was concerned of her. He knows where his mom keeps all the food. Go to storeroom and eat something. She refuses to steal as her Bappa had told her against it. he reasons that Kanha ji too used to eat butter stealthily as he loved his mother a lot. So, whatever mom has cooked for you will be for you only. If you eat it then mom will understand how much you love her. she is still scared of committing such a sin so he offers to do it for her. she doesn’t mind sleeping hungry for a night. Don’t take this sin on your head. He sticks to his plan. They head to the kitchen to get the key for storeroom. They reach kitchen. She tells him to think one more time. We might get in some problem. He tells her to let it be and goes to get the key. He crawls on the floor to reach out for it when Maharaj ji holds his feet. The kids are taken aback.
Precap: Ganga returns to her (Amma ji’s) room. Amma ji is awake. She asks Ganga about her whereabouts.
Sagar crawls on the floor to reach out for the when Maharaj ji holds his feet. The kids are taken aback but then are relieved to see that Maharaj is fast asleep. Sagar keeps his hand back ever so carefully and gets hold of the key. Maharaj ji sits up in his sleep. The kids run out just then.
Amma ji wakes up and finds Ganga’s bed empty. She falls asleep yet again.
Sagar opens the storeroom. He finds the jar full of mathri’s but it is out of his reach. Ganga still suggests him against it. I don’t want to eat anything. He tells her to be quiet. I have already got half of the sin by stealing the key. What’s the point of it all if you don’t eat mathri? Torch’s battery goes dead. Sagar pulls out a big container, picks up the jar full of mathri’s gives some to Ganga. He keeps the jar back in its place. AMma ji wakes up with a start hearing the noise. She calls out for Maharaj ji who too wakes up. He is upset as his sleep got disturbed. Ganga is worried. Maharaj ji switches on the light of kitchen and finds no one else there. Amma ji suggests him to check the storeroom. He replies that it is locked. The noise must have come from upstairs. He again lies down to sleep but Amma ji wants him to check the terrace. She is worried thinking what if a thief entered their house! He gets up muttering to himself that his sleep is ruined. Ganga thinks of an idea. She imitates cat’s voice. Sagar too follows suit. Maharaj smiles thinking that it was just a cat. He tells the same to Amma ji; and also lies that he went upstairs. Amma ji is worried thinking about the utensils kept upstairs. I will have to clean them with ashes tomorrow morning.
Sagar is impressed with Ganga’s smartness. You fooled Maharaj ji no nicely. She did so to avoid committing a sin and Amma ji’s scolding. They both go out of the storeroom then (they forget locking it back). She initially refuses to eat as they got it after stealing but then takes it when he says that he will feel bad otherwise. She goes back to Amma ji’s room. She hides the mathri’s when Amma ji wakes up. She smartly tackles Amma ji’s questions (even about the cat). Amma ji turns her back to Ganga as she again tries to sleep. Ganga looks at the mathri’s in her hands. Sagar too returns to his room with a few mathri’s. Pulkit tells him to sleep as it is too late. Sagar agrees and munches on the mathri’s.
Ganga thinks of Sagar’s words (about Kanha ji) and then of Bappa telling her against stealing. She is in a dilemma. She keeps them under her bedding; rubs her hands together and then looks at her palms. She assures her Bappa that his Bandariya can stay hungry but will never eat stolen food. She finally lies down to sleep.
Amma ji notices Ganga’s posture (funny) as she sleeps. She wakes her up. It is still dark outside but AMma ji tells Ganga that widows have to get up before sunrise. It is written in the scriptures. Ganga wants to know why widows cant live till late like other people. Amma ji replies that they have to make up for their sins. Ganga calls her a sinner. You have sinned? Amma ji mildly scolds her. Stop all this rubbish, we have to go take a bath now. Amma ji is all set to leave when she notices Maharaj ji still sleeping. She throws a cloth at him to wake him up. Prepare my Tulsi pujan thaal by the time I go for my Snan. Maharaj ji nods. Amma ji leaves with Ganga. Maharaj ji notices the empty key rack. Where is the key of storeroom? He goes to check.
Amma ji talks about the Banaras of her time and of today. A foreigner tries to click their photo but Amma ji literally shoos him away. Amma ji teaches her the ritual and Ganga is told to follow suit.
Maharaj ji finds the key (of storeroom) in the lock. The entire room is completely messed up. He runs out to inform Madhvi about it.
Amma ji and Ganga are returning home when Amma ji stops in her tracks upon noticing a dog. She is scared of dogs. She tries to walk away quietly but the dog barks and she shouts for Maharaj ji for help. The kids encourage the dog (Moti) to catch Amma ji. Moti continues to bark at Amma ji. Amma ji scolds the kids for troubling an old lady. Amma ji tries to take another route when the dog catches hold of her carry bag. Amma ji shouts for help but no one comes to her rescue. Ganga looks at the kids enjoying the show.
Precap: Maharaj ji tells everyone that Madhvi was the last person who had gone to the storeroom yesterday. Madhvi remembers it well that she had locked the door properly. Niranjan is surprised that she can be so careless. It is not about money but I don’t like wasting food. Ganga wonders if she should tell the truth that Madhvi ji is innocent.
