Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 221st February written episode: After doing puja, Jyoti wants to give ‘Arati’ to Abhay; by mistake Abhay’s hand is burnt by a candle. He locks up Jyoti inside storeroom, to give punishment. When she appeals for pardon repeatedly, Abhay reminds her Anjali’s words, that women are born to endure.
In the Agnihotri house, all the couples participate in the ritual of Maha Shiv Ratri. Anjali coughs vehemently, but Niranjan does not pay much attention. Niranjan and Shlok leave for office. Anjali orders Sojal to prepare food for breaking the fast.
Anjali’s health gets worse. Astha tries to feed her something because she cannot take medicines in empty stomach. Anjali sticks to her point that she will eat only after Niranjan, as she has been doing since a long time. Astha tries to call Shlok and Niranjan but her calls are not received. Little Kavya cannot endure long fasting. Astha gives her a glass of milk.
The sweater in the cupboard reminds Astha about Shlok’s generosity. She again reads Shlok’s diary. She finds that Shlok bought red and yellow sleek bangles for Swati. He was happy to see Swati’s giggle as she heard the sweet sound of the bangles. Astha becomes surprised to know that Shlok can give importance to such little things in life.
Astha questions herself why she is keeping a fast for her husband. She thinks whether it is a hint of love in her soul. She comes to a conclusion that she is doing this only to follow the customs of the family. And whatever she is doing for Shlok, is for the sake of humanity.
