Overview edit

Saroj is forced to assume the mantle of the daughter-in-law and give solace to Tilak's mother. She manages to save her life but is devastated at her loss. The adulation, love and total acceptance from each member of the family numbs her so completely that she decides, for the moment, to accept her position as "Pushpa bhabhi".
