Anuj sits for havan pooja for Little Anu and thinks Maaya has knowledge and sanskar, but everything has remained to words and didn’t reach her heart or else she would have asked Anupama before organizing yagna, she didn’t even think its important to inform everyone beforehand and just ordered everyone to sit. Anupama addresses God that she doesn’t want to snatch another mother’s rights and even doesn’t want to lose her rights, so she wants blessings and whatever is right for her daughter. Little Anuj sits in Anuj’s lap. Maaya feels disheartened seeing that.
When the havan process is over, Panditji calls for everyone to stand for aarti. Aarti is performed by Little Anu. Maaya follows suit. Anuj is envious after seeing that. Anuj presents panditji with dakshina (fees) following the puja. Panditji only accepts one rupee and claims that Maaya always pays birthday dakshina every time. On her birthday, little Anu queries. Maaya offers dakshina on every occasion, according to Panditji. Anuj asks Panditji to receive the dakshina on behalf of himself and Anupama. Panditji looks at Maaya and accepts dakshina after getting her approval.
Anuj and Anupama get an apology from Maaya for the havan she organized without their consent. Anupama claims she made the right decision since it is okay to express affection and do pooja without asking for permission. When staying at someone else’s home, Anuj advises getting permission first. Little Anu leaps joyfully and shouts “happy birthday.” Anuj informs Anupama that they must go to the temple for the pooja they organized and also to the cowshed.
Maaya begs them to go so she can stay behind and take care of preparations. They shall have a party tonight, she informs Little Anu. Dimple states that Anupama and Anuj are also celebrating. Barkha and Dimple promise to assist Maaya as well. Maaya claims she can handle on her own. According to Dimple, they are considering doing it together. Anupama and Maaya talk about how they feel both love and hate for one another as mothers. Ankush is instructed by Anuj to remain back and watch after Maaya. Ankush reassures Anuj he will keep an eye.
Vanraj overhears Kavya talking on the phone about her trip to London and remembers Leela telling him they should prevent Kavya from traveling to London in the same way they prevented Anupama from traveling to America. He gives her a passionate hug. According to Kavya, wives typically employ amorous ploys to get their husbands to pay attention to them. Vanraj inquires as to her meaning. Kavya claims that their romance came to an end the day they returned from Delhi. Vanraj claims that both he and his family depend on her. Kavya claims she is with him and wanted a separate existence for them, but she didn’t let that happen; she is sad, but not because he made the decision on his own but without consulting her once. Vanraj claims she ought to have accepted the job that he turned down. According to Kavya, she is working and improving as a model. She can travel anyplace but she cannot leave India, according to Vanraj. He is displeased with Mohit and Maaya for acting differently in response to events, saying that a lot is left behind when one progresses away. Kavya queries what his issue is. Vanraj informs her that he does not want her to collaborate with Maaya. Women’s Day, according to Kavya, is a long way off, but she will respond to it right now with My Life, My Ways. She’ll one day regret, according to Vanraj. Kavya asserts that making a mistake after attempting is preferable to not trying at all.
Anuj goes to the temple with Anupama and Little Anu. Chatting with her buddy is young Anu. Ankush was instructed to stay at home and keep a watch on Maaya, which Anupama questions Anuj about. Does she believe him? Anuj queries. She speaks for herself. Then, he begs her to be patient. Rakesh, the son of Shah’s next-door neighbour, comes to see them and criticises Toshu for causing constant traffic jams with his food stand at traffic lights. Even he, claims Vanraj, observed that. When the people don’t want to advance, Toshu says what he can accomplish. Vanraj said that individuals are ostensibly pounding on windows and begging for money while also peddling books and toys. Toshu asks if he should stop doing business. Vanraj says he should do it in a proper way and describes how people suffer from traffic jams. He says Rakesh leaving his business helps traffic police ease traffic jams, its good he didn’t go to police or else Toshu would have been prosecuted. Toshu says he is famous and people wait for his food.
He asks Rakesh to become his partner. Vanraj scolds him and assures Rakesh he will make Toshu understand. Toshu says Vanraj is jealous of his success. Leela scolds him. Kavya asks them to stop their argument as its Little Anu’s birthday today and they need to reach on time. Toshu says he will stop food business as he has another solid business idea. Vanraj taps his head.
Maaya guides her team in party arrangments and drops a chit bowl. Ankush holds it. Maaya thanks him. Ankush says don’t worry, nothing will break via her until he is there, not any stuff in the house or family. Maaya asks if he thinks she came to break his family. Ankush says he, Barkha, Anuj, Anupama, and Barkha are 5 fingers of this family and Maaya is trying to chop off a little finger and take it away. Maaya says all 5 fingers stay together always and not shift here from USA after bankruptcy. Barkha warns her to behave with her husband. Maaya says she should tell that to her husband, she will answer in tone she is questioned. Ankush says Maaya is no position to answer her; whatever he is, he is not like Maaya. Maaya warns him to learn some manners to speak to a woman. Ankush says Maaya doesn’t deserve respect.
Maaya says she tolerated separation from her daughter for years and can tolerate his indecency. Ankush says her decency blew away a once and she showed her true face. Maaya asks if he will see her true face. Ankush says he knows her true face well. Ankush with Anupama and Little Anu returns and asks what is happening. Little Anu runs to Dimple.
Maaya asks Little Anu if she shall get her ready. Little Anu says mummy gets her ready always. Maaya says for today. Anupama asks Little Anu to let Maaya get her ready. Little Anu asks Maaya if she knows to dance. Maaya says she has done classical dance for years. Ankush laughs. Anuj signals him to stop. Dimple tells Anupama that a lot of work is pending and takes her away. Anuj asks Ankush not to stoop low like Maaya. Ankush says whenever he sees Maaya, he gets out of control.
Maaya gets Little Anu ready chatting with her. Little Anu asks her to braid her hair like mummy does and calls Anupama. Anupama asks Maaya shall she and braids Little Anu’s hair. Little Anu is not happy with Maaya setting her hair and she calls Anupama to comb it. Maaya clicks their pics and says she is capturing memories for Little Anu. Anupama talks about a bonding between mothers.
Maaya asks can they become friends. Anupama says its difficult. When sisters can’t maintain cordial relationships, they are mothers of a same girl. Maaya reminds how she bonded well with Kavya. Kavya says it takes years to build a relationship and one second to break. Little Anu clicks their selfie and goes to show it to Anuj. Maaya says there can be 2 mothers in 1 photo. Anupama says only in photos and not in a family.
Precap: Shahs and Kapadias dance during Little Anu’s birthday party. Ankush reveals that Maaya is a cheap dancer and hence doesn’t know Little Anu’s father’s name. Maaya slaps him.
