Ansh’s school organizes a sports day for parents. Aarti decides to participate in the three-legged race along with Ansh. Aarti has to compete with the fathers of other children.
When Ansh’s teacher refuses to enroll Aarti’s name at first, she convinces him. She tells him that she would participate as Ansh does not have a father.
When Aarti enrolls her name, the other competitors pass comments on her. They state that a woman was challenging them. They also underestimate Aarti and state that she can never complete the race. Aarti overhears their conversation and gets furious.
Meanwhile, Mansi arrives and overhears the conversation. She encourages Aarti to participate in the race.
During the event, Aarti and Ansh start off well but in the middle of the race, Aarti trips over her dupatta and falls down. Meanwhile, the other competitors move ahead. Aarti somehow manages to get up and complete the race but does not win. Ansh blames Aarti for losing the race. Aarti apologizes to him but an upset Ansha walks away.
The other competitors, who had passed comments on Aarti, taunt her again saying that she should not compete with men in the future.
Pratik calls up their assistant, Shukla and asks him to make special arrangements for his and Yash’s wedding. Pratik’s aunt overhears his conversation and gets furious.
Vidhi gives credit to Pratik for convincing Yash. She teases Pratik as he would soon get married since Yash had agreed to get remarried. Pratik had vowed that he would not marry until Yash gets married again.
Yash recollects Gayatri’s advice to get remarried as Palak and Payal needed a mother to take care of them. On the other hand, Aarti also recollects Shobha’s advice to get remarried as Ansh needs a father, who will take care of him in the future. Aarti doubts whether Yash would accept Ansh and take his responsibility. Yash, on the other hand, is keener on a loving mother to his two daughters than a companion for him.
