The episode starts with Urmila waking up from sleep as the suns rays hit her beautiful face. Its siam haldi ceremony today as vidhikari of brideâs side Urmila got herself ready. She was to take the bride side haldi to the groomâs and will have to take theirs safely to the palace where her sisterâs haldi was to take place. Her sisters Mandavi and Keerthi were supposed to accompany her to the groomâs place.
Urmila: Mandaviâ¦ Keerthiâ¦
Mandavi: Why are you shouting like this? We are here
Urmila: Rakshashi thank god at least today you woke up early.
Mandavi: [protesting] you mean to say Iâm lazy. I always wake up early only. Itâs you who sleep till late mornings see even todayâ¦.
But before Mandavi could continue or Urmila could protest keerthiâs voice cut them in
Keerthi: didi pleaseâ¦ wonât you guys ever stop fighting its already getting late we have to go now. Everyone will be waiting for us. Maa will be very cross if we get late.
Urmila Mandavi and Keerthi rushed to the hall where everyone was waiting. They greet everyone. As the muhurth comes Sita takes the haldi in her hands prays closing her eyes and gives it to Urmila. Urmila smiles and takes it. The girls leave
In the grooms place, shantha as vidikari has got everything ready everything ready for the haldi ceremony. By the time she had got everything ready the princesses of Videha arrived there.
Shantha: Welcome oh princesses of Videha
Urmila: Here is the brideâs side haldi as per the customs of Mithila the haldi from brideâs haldi should be applied to the groom and vice-versa.
Shantha: We knew about it already hereâs the groomâs side haldi
Ram takes it from her and prays and gives it to them.
Urmila:Devi but how come did you know about Mithilaâs customs?
Shantha [accepting the haldi and smiling]: I took help from a maid to know about the traditions and customs of Mithila
Urmila [getting suddenly tensed]: But devi the haldi should be applird to the bride and groom by their mothers who will do it for the groomâ¦?
Shantha gets tensed as well while Ram smiles and goes to a lady. Sheâs dressed like a Rishi patni.
Ram: Mata a guruâs wife is like a mother for the students. You took good care of us when we left our mothers and came to you for our gurukul. You never let us miss our own mothers. Maa will you do your sonâs haldi today? [Yes that lady is mother Arundhadhi Guru Vasishtâs patni/wife]
Arundhadhi: But son how can I take such big responsibility?
Vasisht: Arundhadhi Ram is saying right guru and gurupatni are like second parents for the students. Go ahead and fulfill your duty as a mother.
Mata Arundhadhi smiles and nods. Everyone smile
