In Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, Akshara (Hina Khan) is upset being away from her joint family. They have been celebrating every festival or any special occasion only with her children and not with other elders like before.
Previously, Naitik (Karan Mehra) tried to make her first day of her joining college as lecturer, a special day by taking Naira's (Ashnoor Kaur) help and organising a get together. This time too her family will try to cheer her up as they are away from Singhania family in Gangaur festival.
Gangaur is the festival that is celebrated in Rajasthan, some parts of Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. The unmarried women worship for being blessed with a good husband, while married women worship for a happy married life and for the welfare, long life of their husbands.
Akshara gets ready for pooja and she looks beautiful like a bride. Naitik looks stunned seeing at her and try to romance. But as usual Akshara stops him. Akshara, Naitik, Naira and Naksh (Rohan Mehra) sit for pooja and they start making murti. Naitik and children ask Akshara to sing the song like before. Though she denies, she will be forced to sing on their insistence. The family sing along and they dance too.
In previous episode we saw how the family in India and Akshara's family getting ready for the festival. Karishma, when asked by her family to plan for the festival, excuses saying she has no time. While Akshara in Cape Town, stitches clothes for pooja and weeps thinking of her family in Udaipur.
Akshara gets ready for pooja and starts making the murti. She is unhappy that she is celebrating the festival away from Udaipur. Naitik and Naksh try to cheer Akshara.
