Anupama opposes Baa’s order and says Anuj will not go from here. She prays god to keep her until control and speak only truth while answering. She says Baa and all her supporters alleged her and Anuj’s friendship, but their thinking is heinous and cheap. Baa says a boy and a girl can be friends in America and not here. Anu says she already told her that a boy and girl’s friendship’s example is in their culture; Draupadi and Kanhaji were friends and not lovers or siblings. Neighbor Sarla says she can keep her friendship in Anuj’s locality and not here. Anu asks why didn’t they have problem when Kavya used to visit the locality regularly, why is only woman blamed and man not questioned at all. Vimla says she is a divorcee. Anu says even Mr Shah is a divorcee, why can a man have a girlfriend before divorce and woman cannot even have a friend after divorce; why only women are blamed always for divorce and not men. Sarla warns Baa to shut her daughter’s mouth. Anu warns her to shut her cheap thinking. Vimla says its good she is divorced as she is unfit to be a bahu. Anu asks if she is fit to be a saas/MIL as she physically and mentally harasses her bahu each and every moment and seeks dowry from her on every occasion; warns her to keep her mouth shut or else she will exposed totally.
Anu then tells Baa that Anuj is a humble and well-cultured man. Baa says she saw what he is. Anu says he would have destroyed them easily, but he never crossed his limits even after Baa humiliated him and GK; his only mistake is he supported her, protected her son, and gave her a job, and instead of Baa thanking Anuj for saving her grandson, Baa is criticizing a savior; Anuj respected her more than Mr Shah or Toshu did. She continues describing society’s wrong thinking and says people like them alleged Seetamaa’s character then and now just the faces have changed; when they couldn’t spare Seetamaa, why will they spare Anupamaa. She says a woman is another woman’s biggest enemy and they need to change this thinking; friendship can happen between anyone without looking at the gender, race, age, etc; she knows Anuj will never cross his limits and their friendship will never end; just like Baa’s son, grandson, and husband’s friends visit home, even her friend will v isit their home and locality and if Baa cannot respect him, even she will not let anyone disrespect him.
Bapuji claps followed by everyone except Baa and her team. Anu takes Samar’s phone and clicks her and Anuj’s selfie and says photo came well not because of good camera but because of their good heart. Vanraj warns her to come home and bear the wrath. Anu stops him and says they will go home, but first she wants to finish another task. She takes everyone to ravan dahan venue and says evil takes over them often, so they burn ravan’s effigy to show that evil cannot survive in front of truth and kindness. She gives bow and arrow to Anuj and says Ravan was ended on dussehra, but their wrong thinking should end today. Anuj shoots arrow at Ravan’s effigy and burns it chanting Jai Sri Ram. Vanraj’s face is zoomed like a ravan’s face. Baa says after what Anu did, they can’t stay under same room.
Anuj with GK returns home and rejoices thinking Anu took a stand for him and remembering the incident; he was waiting for this moment for 26 years and it was a priceless moment for him. GK also gets happy seeing Anuj happy. Anu returns to her room, removes her jewelry, and goes to sleep remembering today’s incidents.
Precap: Anu asks Anuj why didn’t he marry yet. He asks if he should. She says she is eager to hear his story. Bapuji gets worried when Anu doesn’t return home. Vanraj hopes Anu is fine.
