29 February Episode starts with
Ram-Sita and all couples coming Ayodhya. Kaikeyi and Kaushalya check final arrangements. Kaikeyi asks Mantra are the rooms of four sons ready. Mantra says yes, don’t worry. Sugni comes and some things fall off her hand. Kaikeyi asks Sugni is she fine. Mantra acts good to Sugni. Daasis tell about princes coming with their wives. Kaikeyi and Kaushalya rush. Mantra scolds Sugni for making all the things fall. She sends Sugni. She says I will shower flowers on Bharat and Mandvi and smiles.
Praja showers flowers on Ram-Sita and others. Ram asks the man to stop the cart. He gets down and greets the Praja. Ram Ram….plays……….. Ram and Sita greet the common people. All the other couples do the same. Ram hugs the men. Sita feels he is not the Ram whom she has known till now, she is seeing a new Ram in Praja’s eyes and heart. Ram thinks Praja is my life, they live in me and I live in them, if they are happy and fine, I m happy and fine, they are my first Dharm. The Ram who stays in Raj bhavan is not Ram, Ram is the one whom people keep in their hearts.
Dasharath and his queens wait for their sons and vadhus. Kaikeyi asks why are they taking time to come. Dasharath says Ram would be coming after meeting Praja, it’s a merry moment for Praja as well. The princes and their wives reach Raj bhavan. Sugni blows the shank. Dasharath and his queens smile seeing their sons and vadhus. People shower flowers, play dhol and dance around.
Everyone smile seeing the jodis. Ram and Sita take Dasharath’s blessings. Kaushalya does tilak to Ram and Sita. Siya Ram….plays…………. She does their aarti. She makes Sita wear a garland. Ram and Sita take her blessings. Kaushalya blesses Ram and Sita, and welcomes Sita in Ayodhya. She goes forward. Kaikeyi stops and does aarti of Ram and Sita, much to Mantra’s shock. She asks Sugni not to waste flowers. Kaikeyi does rituals with Ram and Sita, and blesses them, till Kaushalya does rituals with Laxman and Urmila.
Kaikeyi says I was very willing to see you both, and goes ahead to Bharat and Mandvi. Sumitra does aarti and rituals for Ram and Sita, while Kaikeyi does rituals for Bharat and Mandvi. The mothers do rituals for all jodis and take them for Grahpravesh. Mantra smiles seeing Mandvi. Guru Vashisht says Grah pravesh for newly weds is for happiness and peace, that’s kumkum and rice are important things used in Grah pravesh. He tells about keeping kalash and applying kumkum in feet, to bring Annapurna, Laxmi inside home, the four vadhus will enter this Raghuvansh, welcome, Sita will make the kalash by her feet and start this new life. Sita stops and everyone look at her. Kaikeyi gets puzzled and looks at Kaushalya.
Kaushalya and Kaikeyi ask Sita what is the matter. Sita tells them something. Everyone smile. Kaushalya says we heard about Mithila’s daughters, and today we have seen them, its unique feeling to see such sisterly love, Raghukul is blessed to get you Sita. Kaikeyi says Sita believes younger one’s respect is elder’s dut, so Sita wants to do Grah pravesh with her sisters. Guru Vashisht finds it right. They all smile. Sugni praises Sita and Mantra gets annoyed. Sita and her sisters, make the rice kalash fall. Ram smiles.
The four vadhus then step in kumkum and walk ahead leaving kumkum marks on the floor. Dasharath and everyone smile. Siya ke ram…..plays….. Ram smiles. Later at night, Mantra dreams of Kaikeyi’s words and Sita. She dreams that she is getting beaten up by people before…. She thinks what is this bad dream, they can’t let this happen.
