Acharya RG asks Mahamatya to announce a 13 day long mourning period in Magadh. Mahamatya says how it can happen without the consent of royal family or without the authority letter. Acharya RG replies that he will take care of it. Mahamatya reasons that they would need royal stamp then. Plus we must not do it without asking Samrat. Acharya RG tells him that they have the authority to take decisions in case of emergency. Beloved wife of Samrat has died. We have to make this announcement. Mahamatya gives in.

Sushim scolds Siamak for bringing the stamp. Why did you get it out of Samrat’s room? Siamak replies that he wanted this only that night. Sushim points out that everyone will doubt Dharma’s death to be some plan in case they don’t find the royal stamp in the room.
They both go to Bindu’s room to keep the stamp back. Acharya RG and Mahamatya are in the corridor only. Sushim and Siamak hide as they hear the sound of footsteps. Mahamatya notices them as soon as they enter inside the room. He tries to divert Acharya RG from noticing the brothers. I still feel we have to inform and seek Samrat’s permission before taking royal stamp. They get into a discussion. Meanwhile, Sushim and Siamak succeed in placing the royal stamp back in its place without getting in Acharya RG’s notice. They hide once again. Acharya RG assures Mahamatya he will take responsibility in case anything goes wrong. They go inside the secret passage. Mahamatya is all tensed but does not show it. Acharya RG does his work and leaves. He does not see either of the brothers hiding there in the room. They are relieved to be safe from Acharya RG. Siamak comments that it will be fun to watch Ashoka breaking down.
Everyone is gathered around Dharma’s dead body. Bindu remembers all the moments spent with Dharma as he pays his last respect to his wife. He pats at Ashoka to go next. Ashoka walks up to his mother in shock. All the incidents flash before his eyes and tears stream down his cheeks as he keeps flowers over his mother’s body. Acharya RG goes up to bring him down. Devi cries seeing Ashoka thus. Vit is also crying as he walks up next. Every member of the royal family pays their respect one by one afterwards. Purohit ji asks both the sons (Ashoka and Vit) to lift the dead body. Ashoka caresses his mother’s head. Bindu, Ashoka and Acharya RG hold one side each. Sushim joins them as well. Chanda comforts Devi.
Mahamatya thinks I can hear the approaching storm clearly. No one else can hear it though. Ashoka will find out the truth and then there will be Mahayudh (a big war). There will only be dead bodies around!
Everyone readies the pyre. Bindu gets emotional as he keeps one log over the dead body. I have always hurt you. I kept thinking to apologize but couldn’t do it ever. Now you are not here and I cannot apologize anymore! Ashoka also thinks of his last convo with his mother and of her wishes. He also keeps a log of wood. It is Vit’s turn next. Vit recalls the promise that his mother took from him a day ago (to be with Ashoka and Devi always). Everyone keeps a log over the dead body one by one. Bindu starts with the ritual. Ashoka, Bindu and Vit light the pyre together. Everyone folds their hands. Vit cries badly. Ashoka stands there like a stone.
At Kalinga, the Daasi’s get ready to welcome Kaurvaki. It is her first homecoming after wedding. They shower flower petals on Jagannath and Kaurvaki as they enter. Jagannath shouts at them to stop it. There was no wedding! Kaurvaki runs inside in tears. Her dupatta gets burnt by diyas in process but she does not seem to care. She cries her heart out in her room. Jagannath walks in. He left you after all your sacrifices that too for his Magadh. Get up. You are the princess of Kalinga. You have some responsibility towards it. That should be your priority from now onwards. Get out of your pain. Everyone knows you are the brave warrior here. Your only mission should be to make Kalinga a better place. He leaves.
Ashoka is in the jungle. He thinks of the childhood times and is really missing his mother. He falls down on his knees. Devi comes just then.
Bindu is bent over Dharma’s ashes. I want a statue of Dharma to be made. The servant agrees to get the best person for this job. Sushim tells his mother that Ashoka isn’t here and Bindu is completely lost in his pain. This is the right time to go to Chanda’s place. Before Ashoka can come out of his pain, we will give him another by snatching his motherland from him. He wont be able to pick his pieces this time.
Devi notices a scorpion approaching Ashoka’s feet and is shocked. She shouts to alert him but he is too lost. The scorpion bits Ashoka. Devi throws it away and Ashoka falls down unconscious.
Bindu says you are right Charu. Life does not stop when we lose someone. You should go to Chanda’s place with the newly married couple as per the ritual. Sushim thinks I very well know which place you want to send us to but I will make sure your plan backfires on you only. Sushim touches his father’s feet after which he heads inside with his mother. Bindu thinks Ashoka may not be in a condition to punish you but I wont spare you. I couldn’t save his mother but I wont spare the enemies of our motherland.
Devi looks at Ashoka’s feet. His thumb has turned blue. She tears her
saree and ties it around his ankle to stop the poison from spreading. She once again tries to wake him up.
Siamak touches Bindu’s feet. I want to go away from here for forever. Bindu makes him stand. Siamak says I cannot see you in this pain. Bindu thinks I wish I could tell you not to shed these crocodile tears but unfortunately I cannot. Siamak requests him to allow him to leave for Takshshila again. Bindu tells him go if he wants to. I would need some time to give you the authority letter though. Siamak thinks I already knew about this which is why stole that stamp and got myself the authority letter already. He acts before Bindu. I don’t need the letter. I only need your permission. I want to go away from here. He wipes his fake tears as he walks away.
Acharya RG asks Bindu if this will be right without Ashoka. I believe we should postpone it till he recovers. Bindu says Ashoka will not let his grief take over his duty towards his motherland. It is true he is not in a condition to take charge right now. I will do it on his behalf. You will get a troop and stop Sushim on his way to Chanda’s place. I will stop Siamak from going to Takshshila with my troops. Nature has given us enough resources on the way to make our plan come true. We will have to use them properly. Acharya RG nods.
Sushim, Charu and Chanda are on their way to Chanda’s parents’ house with a convoy. Bindu and his group of men keep an eye on Siamak from a distance. A big log falls in Sushim’s way. The caravan gets stopped. Sushim looks around in confusion. Soldiers also through boulders in Siamak’s way.
Acharya RG attacks Sushim. Both the parties get into a fight. On the other hand, Bindu too says Jai Janani and they charge at Siamak. Suddenly, Unani soldiers appear from all around and cover Siamak. Bindu is astonished. How did they come here? He still fights with them. Lasendra looks on. Siamak smirks.
Charu and Chanda look on tensed as Sushim kills the soldiers. More people join Sushim. Sushim leaves the other soldiers behind to fight with Acharya RG and his men. He moves ahead with his mother and wife. He also sets the log on fire thereby blocking Acharya RG’s way. Acharya RG tries but in vain.
Soldiers ask Bindu to return as his safety is important. Bindu does not want to let Siamak escape. He is a traitor. Siamak and Bindu continue to fight. Unan’s king shoots an arrow at Bindu’s hand. He gets hurt. Siamak leaves with Lasendra and a few soldiers. Bindu finally leaves from there.
Ashoka sits blank. He keeps thinking about his mother. Acharya RG tells Bindu that they lost both Siamak and Sushim. It is very important to get Ashoka back in form. It will be impossible without him otherwise. Devi says it’s been 4 days already. Bindu says I understand what he is going through. He went through the same thing in childhood when he was told a lie that his mother is no more. He got hold of himself as he knew and believed that his mother was still alive. He was proved right. But this time his mother is not going to come back. He will be at peace only when he will pour the ashes of his mother on his own. Devi walks up to Ashoka looking all determined. She pours water on him asking him to get up. Enough already! You are insulting Kaki’s memories by sitting like this. Think about it. Kaki never turned her face away when it came to duties. She had tried to instil the same in you too. Kaki offered her whole life to make sure you follow dharma and the right path. Will it give peace to her? You have left everything. You are mad to think Ma is no more. Such people become immortal. They are always with us. Their teachings, thoughts, ideals, truth and light are enough to guide us. You forgot the motive for which Kaki lived and died. You are overlooking them. In one way, it is good that she isn’t alive to see the son, for whom she did so much, is sitting idle. Even an ordinary kid goes to Ganga to pour his mother’s ashes but you are here! Just think how she would feel upon knowing this? He gets upset with her but she tells him it is of no use. If you are brave enough then go and punish Magadh’s culprits. It was your mother’s last wish. If this is also impossible then atleast pour your mother’s ashes in Ganga. You can do this alteast? They stare at each other. She notices some movements in his hand and gets hopeful. She encourages him to get up. He finally gets up.
A guy gives a pot to Ashoka. Rani Dharma died as a married woman so you will find some ornaments in the ashes too. Keep them separately please. Ashoka takes the pot from him. He begins to collect his mother’s ashes when he finds a small jewel in them. This seems to be of some man. How come it is in father’s hands?
He recalls meeting his father in the corridor looking for water and entire incident. Is it that the death we were thinking to be natural is actually a murder? He clutches onto the jewel in shock. Keep visiting blastersseries.com for fastest updates.
