Jodha Akbar 14th February written episode: Jodha becomes much happy visiting the place of Salim Shaikh Baba. She thanks Akbar for taking her to the place. She says that a Saint’s existence makes a place holy and divine, as a saint has direct connection to the Almighty. She adds that if material treasures could make them absolutely happy, they would not have visited the place. It is the treasure of the soul, that enriches a person. It gives immense pleasure to Akbar, to see that Jodha is enjoying the tour and he wishes in his mind that it never ends.
To their utter surprise, Akbar and Jodha find Begum Rukaiya on the way. Rukaiya has brought a group of servants and some other stuff for Akbar’s convenience. She tells Akbar that she has come to see Akbar as he is alone with Jodha. She is worried because Jodha does not behave well with Akbar.
Akbar tries to make Rukaiya understand that he is not doing the tour like an Emperor, but he is doing it like a common man. Rukaiya argues with her saying that it is against the customs of an Emperor or an Empress.
Akbar declares that if Rukaiya wants to come with Akbar, she has to dress and behave like a common woman. Rukaiya agrees to it only because she does not want to leave Akbar alone with Jodha. At night Akbar decides to take shelter in a dingy hut, that is available in the road.
Jodha wants to prepare food for Akbar. She finds a gypsy couple preparing food in an open kitchen. Jodha gives her golden hair ornament to the woman and wants to use the kitchen for a night in return. The couple leaves the kitchen.
Jodha prepares food for Akbar and Rukaiya becomes envious. She joins Jodha and becomes extremely upset when she burns a roti. Jodha prevents her from wasting the roti. She says that though the roti is burnt, it carries the effort, involvement and love of Rukaiya. She confirms that Akbar will eat the roti.
When they sit for dinner, Akbar repeats Jodha’s words and truly eats up the burnt roti!
