Sunaina keeps waiting. Sona’s Daadi comes down where Sunaina Devi asks if she have made Sona understand? Sona’s Daadi says she went to make her granddaughter understand but instead she made her understand. She adds that any decision she takes is final and she would not change it as she only listens to her heart and that if there is anything that could change her mind would be time. Sona’s Daadi leaves. Sunaina talks to herself that not time but she will make sure she goes back to work. On the other hand, Julie is walking and just then, her phone rings, she answers the phone where a guy says she asked him to wait for him at the Library and she didn’t come? Julie then lie that her grandmother was not feeling well and her father didn’t re-charge her phone. The guy tells her not to worry that he would do it for her and Julie ends the call saying her mother is coming. Julie thinks to herself how free these guys are. Sunaina is counting cash and keeps it in her money locker thinking she is not able to have Sona’s salary now and she can’t afford to lose it. Sunaina Devi then decide to sells all the gifts given to the Chaturvedis by Sona’s family, with an intention to recover her loss of, not gaining Sona’s salary because of her decision to turn into a housewife. Sunaina then looks for Pappu wondering why he have not arrived and two people come saying they had came to meet Sunaina Devi. Bindiya’s husband calls them in and calls his mummy Sunaina. Sunaina comes there and then calls Neelam. She asks Neelam to take out all the gifts from the Store room and everyone gather in the living hall as Neelam brings out all the gifts. Chacha ( her brother in-law) ask what is all this? In front of everyone and Suhnaina says yes, it’s in front of everyone and tells Bindiya’s husband that this was the gift that Sona’s family gave for her and gives it to the Pappu guy. Sunaina also takes the sarees and gives to the guy. Both Neelam and Bindiya are saying that mummy is cheating them with the gifts. Kanhaiya says everyone know earlier that their mummy switched the gifts but if mummy clears the store room, it’s now wrong. Sunaina also gives the clothes that was meant for Dimple and Julie while Julie asks her not to sell it but Sunaina says she is still going to sell everything and Sona keeps looking at her greedy mother in-law. Sunaina asks how much would they buy the apple and they pay it to Sunaina. Suhnaina thinks to herself that Sona has to change her decision or everyone else would pay for it as she counts the money and looks at a smilling Sona.
Kanhaiya tells Sona so what if people talk? If people talk it will go very far away. Gyaneshwar ( Sunaina Devi brother in-law) suggests Sona to follow her heart and forth come her duties of being a housewife and adds that this talk will end today. Sunaina Devi tells Sona to look right now as she have taken the 1 month’s salary in advance. So she will tolerate it for now, but she will not tolerate it in the future. She further tells her to come on the right path and arrogantly suggests Sona to rejoin her office work. Because if she start having to explain to her, then it will be a big mess and tells her to get herself ready. Sona stays firm to her decision of performing household chores and tells her mother in-law that she will get breakfast ready.
Sona steps into the kitchen. It seems like she is trying to figure out how to work the electronic stove. Sona says such a small heater and so much food but she don’t know how she will make it.
Neelam gets disturbed, as she wishes to help Sona and also perform all her activities of a housewife as she can’t stand not doing any work and that mummy has forbidden everyone from going into the kitchen. Neelam’s husband tells Neelam, that now she is not a housewife and request her to fulfill the duties of a wife to serve her husband. He then tells her that his head feels like he’ve just been shot and asks her to come and massage his head.
Sona is trying to prepare the food. Sunaiya tells the household that they all will be left starving today as Sona will keep them all starving. Bindiya tells Sunaina Devi that she can’t stand the sun, staying starving, and sadness and that if she wait for the food then she will be late to the parlor. The youngest kid tells his aunt to go ahead that she will get a lot of tips. And then asks how will she convince his Daadi? Sunaiya tells Bindiya to go to the parlor and adds that today she won’t take any tips from her and further inform her to have some Kachori and Jalebi on the way. Bindiya says okay and says that at least this way she will get good food. Bindya gets up and leaves. Kanhaiya comes to the dining table and asks what’s the matter as it’s so quiet at the dining table? Sunaina Devi asks her son to have patience and that his wife is cooking something. Meanwhile, Sona is shown continuing to cook stuff in the kitchen and says not everything is even cooked yet.
Gyaneshwar tells his sister in-law Sunaina if the breakfast is being cooked on an electronic heater, then it will take some time. Sunaiya lovely called him Devar, and says that’s why she don’t want their little Chiku to keep saying breakfast and not getting anything. Kanhaiya gives the little boy some money. Sunaiya then tells the little boy to go and eat some food with the money given to him by his uncle. But Chili refuses his Daadi that he don’t want to go and will eat his Sona aunt’s breakfast. Sona continues cooking. Julie too asks her Daddy Sunaina to give her some money too, that she will also eat outside with Chiku. Just then, Bindiya walks back in. Dimple then asks her mom if she is going to the parlor? She then asks her mom to give her and Chiku a lift as they will eat some Jalebis and Kachoris outside. Bindiya agrees and tells them to come. They leave. Sunaina Devi gains Kanhaiya’s support to influence Sona’s decision and suggests her son Kanhiaya to let’s them go into the kitchen and they will explain to Sona to not make a huge mess in the kitchen. But instead go to work and make a mess.
Neelam asks her husband, won’t he have breakfast? He asks why? Neelam says just because he didn’t go to the dining table for breakfast so she thought of asking but he bluntly says no that he will first have this massage done and then he will think whether to eat or not eat. Neelam thinks to herself if he stops having this massage, even then how will she help Sona? She wonders If her mummy finds out then she will kill her.
Sunaina Devi and Kanhaiya walk into the kitchen. Sunaina takes the opportunity that Sona encounters in fulfilling her duties as a housewife to persuade her to go back to work but she is adamant in her decision that she will become a perfect housewife and that she is her daughter in-law. She got strength and trust from her. Sunhaiya asks if she done with her research on being a housewife? She again asks her to leave all of this work that Neelam will do it and calls Neelam. Neelam comes into the kitchen. Sunaina then inform her Sona has failed in trying to become a housewife and tells her to take her out of the kitchen and she should take over the kitchen. She then asks her son Kanhiya why is he standing and looking at her face? She declare that the decision has been made that Sona will be a working wife and not a housewife. She tells him to go and drop his wife to the office. Kanhiya tells his mummy that he is ready to understand her words, but to just let her daughter in-law get ready and then he will happily drop her off. Sona then replied his mother in-law that she have not accepted defeat yet. Sunaina Devi then asks if she never play a cooking game in her childhood that now all of a sudden she have the shock to do all of this? She says making food is a lot more than just a hobby for a housewife and it is necessary to know how to cook to win over everyone’s hearts. Suniana asks how long will she continue playing this cooking game?. Sona, who encounters a difficult challenge fulfilling her duties as a housewife says this is not a game for her but it is the duty of the housewife of such a big family and she want to be a housewife just like her. Sunaina remind Sona that she can’t even be trusted to get a gas, then understand going forward there is going to be no open path for her and that as far as she becoming a housewife, then she will take that thought out of her mind. She leaves the kitchen. Neelam says she forgot to get something. She leaves. Kanhiaya asks his wife if she is coming with him or should he go? Sona says if he want to do anything for her then to just get her a gas. And if he can’t then it’s okay, he should just tell her and she will try her best. Kanhiaya assures her that with him, she don’t have to worry about anything. She is talking about just the gas? And he is ready to do anything for her! He then inform her that he is going now and will get it done. He leaves.
Darshana tells Gyaneshwar ( Sunaina’s brother in-law) that the preparations have been amazing. The gas finished and it’s a good thing. This food is amazing and it’s such a yummy food. Her husband tells her to leave all of that and lovely praise his uncle Gyaneshwar that because of him they got all this food and he didn’t know he was such a great person. Darshana asks how can he say for sure? His uncle tells Damad that he is like a son to him and doing all of this doesn’t suit him. Darshana’s husband decline that he was giving him money but he wasn’t taking it. He shut up the moment Sunaina walks in and then tells Sunaina that his stomach is full of gas so he will go get rid of it. He leaves. Sunaina asks Darshana what he have done? Darshana says he haven’t done anything and she is the one who found him for her and she is suffering for it. Hearing this, Sunaina says if this goes overboard then she won’t get a chance to tell them both what they have done. They have to fix them up and she’ll also be packing away. Darshana asks what is she talking about? First this whole gas problem is such a headache and now she is saying it’s because of her and tells her mom that her brain is so empty right now. Sunaina says with Sona both her brains need fixing too.
Sona walks in and bring Gyaneshwar breakfast. He thanks and bless her. Sona also gives her mother in-law her breakfast. Sunaina then asks if she see the time? The clock reads a little past 12 and if she look at the watch then she will learn how to see and if this continues to be the state of the house then everyone will get their breakfast so late. She then tells Sona all this is not for her and asks If she want her to write this outside of the house? Sona replied her that she can’t say that and asks what have she done so far in her life that outside that she would honor her? Sunaina says if she haven’t done anything yet, then to do something and it’ll only suit her to work at a nice paying job. She remind her that she is a press person and only that suits her and not in the kitchen but Sona interrupts her asking how is the breakfast? Sunaina says when ones is very hungry then everything tastes good. Everyone smiles. Sunaiya starts criticizing the food a bit.
On the other hand, Kanhiaya is searching for gas. A random person tells a random guy that he told him already that they don’t have any gasses. The guy leaves and Kanhiaya arrives at the same place. He walks up to the guy who stands up seeing his arrival. Kanhiaya inform him that he was being mean on the phone and asks what have he decided? The guy says the decision is in his hands and whatever he punish him for, he will tolerate it but he don’t have a gas and he won’t get any gas nearby. Kanhiya hits the guy and asks how can he say for sure? The guy plead with him to leave him. Kanhiya asks if he is threaten him. The guy gives Kanhaiya some money and Kanhiaya lets him go. Kanhiaya then says he’ve gotten his senses after he choked him and in front of his eyes he found money. He leaves happy with the fact that he got money.
Sunaina is on the phone and She invites several guests for lunch inorder to trouble Sona. She hangs up and again call someone to get ready as tomorrow where everyone will comes to eat food cooked by the daughter in-law. She tells the person on phone to bring her entire family as her new daugther in-law has come and she will eat her food. She makes all of these calls in front of Sona. Devar ji asks his sister in-law to forgive him and asks what was the hurry as they haven’t even gotten the gas yet. Sunaina asks why is he worrying? Their new daughter in-law will fulfill the duties of being a housewife well. She then makes another call.
Neelam comes and asks if she call her? An upset Suniana asks what is wrong with her? And that when he call her, she’ll know clearly that she called her and tells her to go and rest as they have a housewife. Neelam leaves. Devar remind his sister in-law they don’t have a gas in the house, so all of this is of no use but Sunaina interrupts him saying this is the time to see Sona’s capability and then tells Sona that she only have today to prepare. And that tomorrow evening only about 7-17 people will be coming to have food cooked by her and during this period no household chore should be put on hold. Devar asks his sister in-law if she is sure about this, and asks her to think about it one more time. Suyaina replied him that she is a housewife and knows everything. She will find a way. She then asks Sona if she will make all of that food or want to quit? But, Sona stays adamant on her decision and welcomes every hardship by Sunaina Devi with a smile that she will make all the food and make sure all the relatives love it. She further tells her mother in-law that she said the right thing that she is a housewife and a housewife knows everything. So she will solve all the problems of the gas. Sunaina confidently tells her that she won’t be able to do it and there is still time to quit. She will call the ‘Halwayi’. Sona says there is no need for that. If she have her blessings with her, then with her blessing no work will be left incomplete.
A neighbor comes in the house calling Neelam, Neelam welcomes her asking if there is anything in which the neighbour says that her gas has finished and she came to see if they had extra. Neelam explain to her that their gas is finished. The neighbor asks what would she do now? Neelam tells her not to worry and to let her see what she can do which Sona is watching from the kitchen. As Neelam turns, she sees Sunaina where Sunaina pulls Neelam away. The neighbor sees Sona and identify her as the new daughter-in-law! The neighbour then goes to Sona and tells her that her gas is finished in which Sona too tells her not to worry. She asks the neighbor if she have tomatoes, vegetables and bread in her house? The neighbour asks why bread? Sona’s neighbor then asks if she know sandwich? As she was so worried on how would she do anything without the gas but she ( Sona ) had given her the idea. She tells Sona that she will go back home and do Sandwich for everyone and smiles while Sona smiles too. Meanwhile, Sunaina brings Neelam to her room and asks how many times do she have to tell her not to do anything without asking her? Neelam try to explain to her mother in-law but Sunaina warn her that if she repeat the same again, her punishment would be worse than Renu and Bindiya. Gyaneshwar ( Devar by Sunaina and he is call uncle by the rest of the family) advices Sona to beware of Sunaina’s actions and asks how is she managing things in which Sona replied him that if a person is strong, she will be able to handle any situations. Gyaneshwar also explains about the river ganga. Sona asks him not to worry as she will never break his trust. Gyaneshwar asks that without gas, how would she cook for so many people? Sona says preparation for tomorrow have been taken care of but the worry is about today and that she will surely find a way for it. He asks how will she prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner without the gas cyclinder? Sona says she have a super plan with her Sona and however, relishes him and starts explaining to her uncle ( Gyaneshwar ) in a silent mute. He is happy with her plan and shows thumbs up to her. Later in the hall, Sona announces everyone to listen as she has news for them where Renu, Bindiya and Neelam comes to Sona. Sona however, announcing a fake surprise by their mother in-law Sunaina Devi to the family in Sunaina Devi’s absence. She inform them further that all of them on handphones and TV which means they should open their eyes and ears and listen properly to what she is going to say and get prepared for it. All of them get excited hearing this. Sona claps her hands and their uncle thinks to himself that if his sister in-law is smart, then Sona is even smarter than her and she is the right person to handle her and can’t wait for the surprise in his sister in-law’s face and laughs. Renu and Bindiya are also going and get prepared for the surprise by their mother in-law. Sona then calls her husband Kanhaiya and asks if he remember about the gas cylinder? Hearing this, Kanhaiya assured her not to worry about it as he had called to the gas provider and if he bring the gas cylinder today, she should remember what is balance? Sona understand he is talking about their consummation and tells him that he is talking exactly like a police officer. Kanhaiya decline this and says he will speak in love language and can’t wait for tonight to be intimate with her. Sona tells him to first understand her language, and inform him too that his mom is going to give everyone a surprise. Kanhaiya is confused about his mom surprise without a cylinder. He then sings a song to her about cylinder while the constables are dancing together. Sona, who is listening to this smiles and laughs. She tells him that he is funny at times. Neelam also tells her that she is lucky to get him and that she must have done good in her previous life to get a husband like Kanhaiya and then tells her to look at her own fate? Sona asks why is she saying that? She make her understand that Udham is also good. Neelam says being good only is not enough as there is no heart and he always only speaks of military and even makes border in the room and this seems upset to her. Sona says that means there is nothing between both of them? Neelam confined in Donating that there is nothing and perhaps he don’t care about her too? Sona asks if she have talked to him about this? Neelam smiles saying in all the works, perhaps she didn’t found the time to do so. Sona then tells her that they both are good people and there must be a mis-understanding between them. Neelam says it’s just her fate and that Sona is lucky. Sona then tells her to wait and see that Udham would love her so much one day that her life would change. On the other hand, Bindiya is putting on make up and her husband teases her not to apply too much on her face. Bindiya stares at him. Renu also wears a nice saree while her husband is still selecting the right shirt as they all prepared for their mother surprise. Sona too is making Neelam wearing an expensive saree and some jewelleries. But Neelam is uncomfortable and tells her that she is only used to be simple. Sona says she need to wear it like this.
Sona further tells her that she should always get to dress like this and to make use of today. Sona lets go of Neelam’s hair saying even a housewife’s life needs to change. Renu meanwhile is scolding her husband that in the name of searching for a shirt, he is ruining all her saree and asks him not to wear any ugly shirt and come next to her. She adds that if he wear that and he should stand with his brother. An uncomfortable Neelam tells Sona this change is too much for her. Just then, her husband Udham comes in and is shocked to see his wife Neelam change avatar from down to up. Neelam also looks at him not sure of what he think. Udham then says she look like he had not seen her before and just like a new missile’s entry. Sona laughs telling Udham that her sister Neelam’s entry in his life is a new change. Sunaina comes to the hall and thinks why is everyone getting excited today? Perhaps her new daughter in-law Sona has decided to go back to office without telling her? Sunaina goes to the kitchen and wonder where Neelam is? Even Renu and Bindiya is not seen anywhere? Julie comes to Bindiya’s room saying that there is an important thing and asks her mother if she remember she wanted to bring her to her beauty parlor? Bindiya says yes and asks what is with that? Julie says there is an viewers awards show on Zee TV and many starts are coming on it. Bindiya asks who is coming on it in which Julie says Abhishek Bachan, SRK and many more. Bindiya remind her daughter that they are in Ahmebad and asks how would they see them? Julie says they can watch them on TV and she want to look like a star too. She had also voted for her favorite star and she hope they would win in. Bindiya also says she want to watch the Zee Cine Awards. Sunaina comes in saying no one can hide anything from her and that on 19th January, the remote control for the house will be with her. She adds that not only them but all of them will also watch Zee TV awards. Bindiya asks everyone to watch Zee TV awards too. Sunaina goes up and hears Darshana and her husband talking about the gas cylinder in which Darshana says everyone here are worried and her husband asks where will he look for one? He can try looking for one and get extra money for this. Hearing this, Sunaina breaks her silence telling Darshana, she want to speak to her son in-law personally and she may leave to her room. Sunaina then tells him that she is willing to give him money but he will help her. He asks if she want him to find good cylinder? Sunaina Devi on the other hand, bribes Darshana’s husband to prevent cooking cylinder’s availability at it residence whille he says he can’t understand and Sunaina says he would soon. Kanhaiya comes him into his room and sees Sona dressing him and says he feel like today is his suhaag raat. He complement her that she look like a beautiful flower, he holds Sona’s hands and says the name of the beauty is Sona. Sona asks if he forget his duty.
