While climbing up the staircase, Anuj tells Anupama that this is the most special place for him as he saw her here for the first time. They reach a balcony and Anupama tells Anuj that it was the place where she got ragged by her senior. Anuj reminds Anupama the name of the senior, who ragged her was Vivek.

Emotional Anupama tells Anuj that she wants to know everything he did for her. Anuj takes Anupama somewhere. On the other hand, Bapuji and GK are seen walking together outside. Gk asks Bapuji to have some fruit juice. Bapuji replies that he drank the juice just now. GK asks Bapuji to drink some more juice as he has walked a 100 meters after the last juice.
Bapuji asks GK to stop it now. Bapuji gives his reports to GK to keep them safely with him. He keeps the doctor’s prescription and the new tonic doctor gave to him, with himself.

She also tells Anuj that every average girl/woman dreams of having something to be proud of. Anupama further tells Anuj that God made her a part of a love story, which she is very proud of. Anuj tells Anupama that he feels the same. He also tells Anupama that their love story isn’t that dramatic or filmy. Anuj explains to Anupama that he never climbed up a ladder to reach her balcony to meet her. He also explains to Anupama that he never danced on bollywood numbers with background dancers to impress her. Anuj further explains to Anupama that her parents never gave him a blank cheque to get out of her life. Anuj says it’s all average.
Anupama tells Anuj that past and present are simple. She also tells Anuj that thankfully their love wasn’t like a momentary rush, rather like the warmth of a winter sun. Anuj reminds Anupama that it’s she only, who keeps saying that simplicity adds beauty. Anupama tells Anuj that she was scared after separation from Vanraj.

He tells Anupama that their story began here, then it halted here, then it restarted in the reunion party that happened at this college and now it has reached the college bench they are sitting on presently.

She says she can just tell her that tomorrow’s sangeet ceremony will be special, especially for Anuj and Anupama. Devika indirectly makes fun of Vanraj, seeing him and Baa getting jealous. Angry Vanraj thinks that he is just waiting for some chance or issue to happen, which he can manipulate to shut up Anupama’s supporters.

He hears Paritosh saying that he has given so much pain and sadness to Anupama and might also do the same in future.
Paritosh says he can’t either take care of relations or abide by them. He says he always troubles Anupama and apologizes to her, again and again for the same. Paritosh promises that he will work so hard in Anupama’s marriage with Anuj that all his past mistakes will be forgiven. Kinjal holds Paritosh’s shoulder in happiness and says that they are the luckiest children, who have got the chance to see their mother, getting married.

Devika says Anupama is very lucky as her children are preparing the wedding mehendi for her. Samar says even Anuj is lucky as they are preparing and grinding the mehendi for him too. Devika asks Anupama’s children to grind the mehendi for Anuj in the mixer-grinder. Kinjal requests Devika to not even say that as a joke. Pakhi agrees with Kinjal and says that Anuj is very special to them. Vanraj stops hearing all this. Samar asks Devika why they should consider Anuj as a stranger, when he calls them his own.
Samar says the person who ushered so much happiness in his mother’s life, deserves all the happiness in the world. Kinjal says their mother (Anupama) is one in a million and deserves a person like Anuj and no one else. Vanraj shed tears of disappointment. Devika says both Anuj and Anupama were naive, otherwise she wanted to unite them during college days only.
