Arjun smiles and tells her to relax, that alongwith being his wife, shes also the daughter of Deshmukh family. Sachu dada is in the hospital so her presence is needed there, it’s a good thing because she can help Ayi over there, and she doesn’t need to apologize to him for these matters.

While working today her husband’s arm got caught in the machine and hes badly injured. She requests Gauri to come quickly.

You know when Archana came as a bahu in my home, then…(Savita stops as she remembers how she had behaved at that time) She says, let it be! Let us forget those days, but now I am very proud of my bahu! Archu considers Gauri as her daughter, not her bahu! Do u know, Sachu is not her biological son, but she loves him more than her own son! She knows how to make relations work and respects every relationship!

Gauri goes looking near where Soham is hiding, he gets up and comes out into the open before her, smiling casually. Shes shocked to see him there! She steps back, he comes closer, but before he can reach her, Archana comes in the middle with a grim look! She shakes her head with tearful eyes, then yells POLICE!

Pavitra rishta 25th September 2013 written episode
Archu tells them, Until Sachu and Gauri get married, I will stay here with Gauri. If you don’t have any objections, then…
Rajni says, of course we won’t object, we are happy that u are doing so much for our daughter!
Umesh agrees, So far we have heard of a mother doing everything for her kids, but this is the first time we are seeing a Saas fighting to protect her future Bahu!
Archu says, Its not like that, Umesh ji, Gauri is like my daughter but if it was some other girl in her place, I would still do the same for her! Because it’s the duty of every woman to understand and help other women! And Im doing just that!
Umeshji folds his hands in gratitude and admiration. Archu protests that he doesn’t need to do that, Umesh tells her, Archana Ji, Im saluting ur goodness and generosity of heart. Every parent wants a good husband for their daughter, but why don’t they pray for a saas who is like a mother?
Archana says, we have to change that mentality!
Gauri and her parents look emotional and gratefully at Archana.

Archu tells Savita, Ayi, Im going to stay with Gauri.
Savita and Ovi look astonished. Ovi asks why is she going to live there?
Archu tells them, Actually that gunda again tricked Gauri into going to a Mill, he was planning to kidnap her from there. Its good that I went there with Gauri so she was saved, but we cannot trust that boy! He has forgotten humanity and become a monster! He can only see Gauri and nothing else!
Savita says, But Archu, how can u go and live in ur samdhi’s house like this?
Archu says, she has no other option! What else can she do? I have to stay there, come what may..
Ovi asks, Ayi, did Gauri tell you something?
Archu says, No Ovi, the thing is Soham cant do anything in front of me, he cant say anything, so its more necessary for me to stay with Gauri. Anyway I have promised her father that I will protect her…that’s why Im going there. Gauri is my responsibility.
Savita asks if Archu has told all this to Manav yet?
Archu shakes her head, No Ayi, but I will explain it to him! Ayi, am I doing something wrong?
Savita says, Archana, there can be no other like you! Because whatever u think is right! If only I could be an Aayi like you!
Archu says, No Ayi, you supported me even when u didn’t like me at all! Remeber when I had that accident, but u helped me so much! You did all those things which u never wanted to do for me, and that’s when we built up a relationship. I have learned all this from u only.
Archu tells Teju and Ovi that shes leaving and they should take care of their Baba in her absence. Don’t let him suffer in any way.
Ovi and Teju agree.
