Jodha Akbar 19th September written
episode: Jodha’s words strike Akbar. He remembers his old days with
Maha Manga, how she raised him with sincere love, care and
affection. Man Singh takes Maha Manga to the cart, for shifting her
to Delhi. Maham wishes to be in the place where Adham was laid
after his death.
Maham wishes to meet Jodha. Hamida sends message. Jodha
helplessly prays in front of Lord Krishna, for she is not able to
fulfil the last wish of a dying person. Being informed, she comes
to see Maham.
Jodha tells Maham with earnest regret that she was not able to
change the Emperor’s mind. But, Maham sees Jalal coming towards
her. Jalal removes his crown before coming to Maham. He comes and
hugs her tight, calling ‘Badi Ammi’.
Jalal tells Maham that Emperor Akbar punished her for her crime.
Her son Jalal still loves her. He bursts into tears. Maha Manga
tells Jodha that she has given her the best gift of life.
Maha Manga says that she wants to take her curse back. She
wishes that the heir to the Mughal throne will come from Jodha’s
womb. She says that Jodha deserves being the Chief Queen and The
King’s Mother. She bows her head in front of Jodha.
A Hindu maid remembers that once she cursed Maham saying that
Maham, who was forever a Hindu-hater, would bow down in front of a
Hindu Queen. Maham tells Jalal that she was not able to sleep until
he met her; now she wants to sleep. She requests him to sing a
lullaby that she used to sing to him in his childhood. Jalal sings.
Maham dies in his arms!
