Upstairs, Mahima, Harsh and Anand discuss and finalize that the music therapy department will shut down in Birla hospital and instead of that IVF facility will start. They discuss that the IVF facility will earn them a lot of profits within 2 years, which the music therapy department won’t ever earn in many births. Mahima says music therapy departments will make them fall in losses within a few days. Harsh asks who will explain this to Abhimanyu as just Akshara is settled in his mind. Mahima says Abhimanyu is ruining their year long efforts due to his love for Akshara. She also says that Abhimanyu without thinking about anything gifted a whole department to Akshara.
She further says this is not done and they need to explain to Abhimanyu that he can’t do this to them.

Akshara overhears this and gets hurt in shock. She returns with a tray of juice and snacks. Abhimanyu asks Manjiri where Akshara is. Manjiri tells Abhimanyu that Akshara went upstairs to serve juice and snacks to Mahima, Harsh and Anand. When Abhimanyu expresses worry, Manjiri tells him that Akshara is trying to bond up with everyone and knows how to maintain relationships with everyone.
Worried Abhimanyu goes to check on Akshara. Tense, Akshara recalls how Abhimanyu surprised her with the music therapy department.

She comes downstairs and asks the servant to serve juice and snacks to Mahima, Anand and Harsh. Kairav sees tense Akahara with questioning eyes. He asks Akshara to honestly tell him what’s the matter. Akshara indirectly tells Kairav that adjusting in a new house with new people is taking more time than usual. Kairav asks Akshara, if she is telling him the truth or else she is having some other tension.
He tells Akshara that she can tell him about her worries and he will do whatever he can do to end her worries. Akshara hides the truth and tells Kairav that she is very happy. Suddenly, Abhimanyu comes there and asks Akshara if everything is fine. Akshara says yes. Abhimanyu assures Kairav that he will always keep Akshara happy. Kairav feels a little relaxed and leaves. Abhimanyu tells Akshara that his family is very different from hers. He tells Akshara that he can’t expect her to fully adjust in his family as he himself hasn’t properly adjusted with Birlas till now. This stunns Birlas.
On the other hand, Harsh, Anand and Mahima decide that they will inform about the new IVF facility and music therapy department shut down decision to everyone after some of their work gets started. Abhimanyu explains to Akshara to ignore some people’s nonsense talks in the Birla family, especially Harsh’s words. He also explains Akshara to not take anyone’s nonsense to her heart and maintain distance with toxic people of Birla family, like he maintains. Abhimanyu asks Akshara to just think about him, Manjiri and her work/job (music therapy department). Akshara keeps hiding Mahima, Anand and Harsh’s plan of shutting down the music department.
Mahima, Anand and Harsh come downstairs. Swarna indirectly asks if Akshara and Abhimanyu aren’t going for their honeymoon.

Aarohi wishes that she could have been lucky like Akshara. She thinks Akshara gets everything without putting any effort, while she gets alone.
Shefali says Akshara is so lucky as Abhimanyu takes so much care of her. She says otherwise some husbands don’t bother. Suhasini asks Akshara to inform them when she will start working in her music therapy department as they will also visit to see her department. Akshara remains sad and silent. Abhimanyu tells Suhasini that he will himself come to pick her up that day. Anand, Mahima and Harsh make faces. Akshara wonders why Anand, Mahima and Harsh aren’t announcing their decision about shutting down the music therapy department. Manish says the rest of the family will also wish to see Akshara working in her department.
Harsh says it’s the hospital, not some stage that someone will see their daughter performing or acting. Harsh’s words pricks everyone. Harsh says he can’t understand why parents have an obsession to see their children’s office. Abhimanyu reminds Harsh that he himself saw/monitored his first surgery. He angrily asks Harsh how or what type of obsession it was. Harsh feels angry and embarrassed. Goenkas takes a leave to return to their house. Abhimanyu and Akshara meet everyone in the Goenka family and see them off. Aarohi tells Akshara that she will meet her in the hospital now.
Abhimanyu tells Manjiri that everyone in the hospital is again and again asking for him and Akshara and they need to leave urgently. Manjiri asks Abhimanyu and Akshara to go. Abhimanyu goes upstairs asking Akshara to wait 2 minutes for him. Akshara feels tense seeing Abhimanyu’s excitement for her music therapy department work. She wonders why no one from Mahima, Anand and Harsh are telling anything to Abhimanyu.
