He says that she has already filed the missing report, and on top of that, they shall give, video, audio and print advertisements in the tv, radio and newspaper for the same. she complies and agrees to it. he asks her to reach home, as he shall come straightaway, and asks her not to worry. she complies and leaves with kashish.
Sagar retreats away, while madhavi and krishna continue to pray. madhavi gets ahead, oblivious as to who is krishna. before she can see her, krishna rushes away from there, distracted by a ritual, that a woman performs locking on a particular pivot. she comes and asks whats the matter. Krishna is shown a temple, by a woman, who tells about some mannat bringing tree, on which if a lock is put, with a wish, then the lord fulfills it, and she has to take one old lock from heer and when her wish is fulfilled, she has to bring it back. she asks if her wish shall be fulfilled too. the woman complies.
Krishna asks what if someone takes her lock. the woman says that guarantees the fulfillment immediately, and then says that she needs to return the lock that she took when she wanted her wish to be fulfilled. the woman explains everything, and krishna hurriedly asks where can she find the lock. the woman shows her the locksmith. she rushes to the locksmith and requests him to give her one, even though she doesnt have enough money, after having selected one nicely.
The shopkeeper gets irritated and frustrated, as she continues to pester him. she requests and pleads citing its importance, but he shoves her away. she calls him a snob, and mumbling, she leaves and sits on a bench, coutning the change that she has. meanwhile sagar arrives at the same shop, and finds the shopkeeper grumbling, and asks what happened. he shows her the girl, with her back towards the shop, and narrates everything, complaining as to how the parent’s upbringing is wrong in this.
Sagar eyes krishna from the backside, oblivious of her identity. sagar gets back to selecting a lock for herself. the shopkeeper says that even the girl selected this one. sagar eyes the girl, still from her backside, and then pays for it, and an additional one, and asks him to give the lock to her. he calls the girl, after sagar leaves. she hurriedly goes to the shopkeeper, who gives her the same lock. krishna tries to give money, but the shopkeeper shows sagar from the backside, who paid for her.
She decides to thank him and rushes after him, having taken the lock. sagar meanwhile obliviously walks on the streets. but madhavi meets him up just then, and they both get to doing the ritual, while sagar feels that someone called him. she takes him from there, seconds before krishna arrives there. sagar performs the lock ritual, while madhavi watches on tensedly. after they are done, krishna comes happily, wishing that the person who paid for the lock, should have his wish fulfilled. after she ties her own lock, she starts looking for the lock that she should take, and wonders which one should she take. she closes her eyes, and as fate would have it, her hands fall on sagar’s lock itself. she takes it off and leaves.
Meanwhile, madhavi remembers that sagar didnt get another lock in return. he is reluctant, but madhavi asks him to comp-lete the ritual, and badgers him into going back. he complies. as they return back, krishna is finished taking his lock by then. as destiny demands, sagar takes krishna’s lock only, as they stand obliviously on the two sides of the wall, each ignorant of the other’s presence. they both take the other’s locks, and then go their own ways.
Krishna is however distracted by a little girl speaking to her mother as to how much she misses her and begs her to come back soon. she starts getting emotional remembering ganga, and her concern for her. she decides to call ganga once, and tell that she is okay, and she shouldnt bother.
Niranjan tells her and makes her listen about the disappearance and the missing report that he got broadcasted on the radio, and then says that soon there shall be news on the media too, and before long, krishna shall be found. ganga is tensed even though they try and assuage her, to calm her.
As Krishna dials ganga’s number, meanwhile niranjan is talking on another phone. when there is no info from anyone, despite such advertisements, ganga is getting restless and impatient, when the phone rings. krishna wonders whether she should talk or not, as if ganga gets to know, she might just forcibly get her to stay back, and stop her mission. ganga instinctively feels that its krishna at the other end. she continues to talk to krishna, asking her to speak up, and say something as to why she did so.
Krishna decides not to talk to ganga, as she would take her home, and not allow her to meet her father. niranjan dials back the number, when she is sure that its ganga. as the PCO fellow picks up, niru gets to know thay a small girl came just now. Niranjan asks him the location of the PCO and asks him to keep the girl, but he says that the girl already left for the bus stand. along with niru, Ganga hurriedly leaves asking kashish to stay back home.
Meanwhile, at the bus stand, the kidnapper couple, find that krishna is alone, and is going to chitpur all alone, asking everyone for directions. they decide a plan to nab her. they ask her where she wishes to go, and if she needs any help. she is skeptic. they talk amongst themselves, as to how they shall get late for chitpur and should get going. she is alarmed as she hears the name of the place. niru and ganga arrive and they start their search at the bus stand.
krishna asks them if she can come along too. they hurriedly comply, and then ask about the parents. krishna innocently answers, and they are evilly amused, as its the perfect set-up. the bus for chitpur arrives and they all get seated along with krishna. ganga dn niru continue their frantic search. As Ganga arrives anear the chitpur bus, she is oblivious that krishna is on the bus to chitpur, and passing off, with the kidnapper couple, while she is tensed for her daughter’s safety.
Sagar rushes to grab krishna as she doses off into unconscious state. he takes her in the arms and rushes to the car, where madhavi is boggled as to whats going on. she takes one look at the girl and is shocked. he asks madhavi to call ganga and give her the update, while he places her in the car. madhavi rushes to the PCO and calls ganga, who is shocked to hear her voice, madhavi informs that krishna is with sagar and hw they are rushing her to the hospital. ganga is stunned into silence. niru takes the phone, and then madhavi informs him too. he takes the name of the hospital. after cancelling, he assures ganga that everything would be alright. Ganga starts imagining what could have happened wrong. niru continuously calms her down.
Ammaji remembers the recent happenings and gets lost and tensed, when maharaj comes and asks her to eat something atleast, but she refuses, citing that since sagar and madhavi went, they feel so sad and lonely. they lament at the situation of the house. ammaji says that all is spoilt now, and wonders whether there shall be anymore happiness. just then, she finds juhi throwing tantrums, for having milk, while surpirya rushing after her, to grab her.
Ammaji and maharaj start eyeing her, as they enjoy. she smiles. maharaj points out how the lord takes from one and gives from the other hand, and how her smile shall bring back the happiness of the house. she asks juhi why is she irritating supriya. juhi says that she doesnt like milk. ammaji starts imagining how she made sagar drink it, and juhi likes that idea too. she rushes after supriya. ammaji laments as to what happened and what could have been.
Sagar hurriedly parks, and then carries krishna in his lap, and runs inside. madhavi rushes after him. Ganga too arrives just then, and hollers at her. sagar and madhavi look back. ganga gets berserk begging her to open her eyes. they compose and calm her down, while niru comes from behind, and finds out what happened. both niru and madhavi rush to get a stretcher, and have a romantic moment. they hurriedly place krishna on it and get her in.
Ganga asks sagar to get the doctor, while he says that they are all here and she should calm down. niru asks them not to bother. the doctor comes, and they rushedly ask him to examine. sagar and gaga are distraught, while the doctor asks for the age. ganga talks about how earlier also, she fainted once, and it was diagnosed that she has a hole in the heart and is a blue baby. sagar and madhavi are shocked to hear this. the doctor decide to rush her to the OT. ganga gets berserk and asks why, but niru makes her retreat as they rush krishna inside.
Sagar remembers what ganga said about the father. he is shocked as the revelation stands that he is the father, and what all he put her through and how he too had the same genetic defect. ganga isnt allowed in, as she insists. sagar is still in a daze of shock, as they are told that she needs to be operated on. ganga is distraught, as she hugs niru and cries out her heart. he calms her down assuring everything would be okay. he makes her sit down, while sagar is too shaken up, as she remembers how she must have been hurt. he tries to go to her.
Madhavi stops him, but he gets ahead to ganga and then says that he needs to ask something. niru asks him to let be as ganga is tensed. sagar says that he is tensed too, and asks her why did she say that krishna had the same disease that her father had. ganga is shocked. sagar asks her who is krishna’s father, and she is at a loss of an answer. he hesitates and tries to ask, while niru asks if he still doesnt understand, and asks him not to bother her, in this state, if he cant console her.
Sagar says that he needs to know, and sits on his knee, and beside ganga, and asks who is the father. she says that he doesnt know him, hence the question doesnt stand a relevance. he says that she knows, and he merely wants to know the name. niru and madhavi stand tensed. she says that she thought she knew him, but realised that she was wrong, and she doesnt know. he begs her to say it out once, as its important for him. niru says that he doesnt have the right to ask this from ganga. but sagar continues on, and before ganga can respond, the nurse takes her away for signing of some papers before the operation starts. she complies and leaves. sagar stands tensed.
Later, madhavi gets water for niru, who himself is concerned for her too. they both the OT where she is being operated on. niru says that he loves her more than anything else, and knows that krishna shall be fine. she also assures him the same, that there are many people praying for her, including sagar. niru gets tensed hearing this. as the operation ends, the doctor comes and tells that krishna is out of danger now.
They say that they have inserted a stent in the heart and that she has been shifted to the recovery ward, and they can meet her there. ganga rushes to go. he then tells niru that he needs to discuss financial matters, and talks about how sudden it was, but such a surgery requires huge money. ganga turns around tensedly ad joins the conversation.
Sagar steps in and tells niru that they shouldnt stop anything in the treatment, for money, as he would pay for everything. ganga denies point blank, saying that she is her daughter’s both parents, hence she shall bear the cost and noone else. she says that krishna isnt an orphan, and she can take care of her own baby. she says that she can manage on her own ahead too, like the past, and that her krishna’s life, isnt anyone’s sympathy motive. She asks the doctor to continue the treatment, as she shall manage the entire expenditure. she faces sagar sternly and then walks off.
Gangaa 16 December 2020 Update ends as Niru says that ganga is still the same as she was, her pride and ego more than anything else, and asks how he forgot that she wont take anything as a beg or in sympathy, and she shall not stop till she gets whats her rightful share. sagar hears tensedly, as niru says that he is proud of her.
