Diya Aur Baati Hum's August 20th episode: Sandhya regrets that she has failed to catch Chandu as the whole area is covered in darkness. People are panicked and they keep running everywhere. Shekhar holds Sandhya’s hand and tells her to come with him. Sandhya understands that she has to act like ‘Sagarika’ again.
Before leaving the place with Shekhar, Sandhya sees a plate of lamps. She thinks it can spread fire; she keeps it in a temple and prays there for the well-being of Sooraj. After she leaves, a little girl sees the lamp and thinks it will be extinguished if kept in such open place. She takes it.
The wet firewood does not catch fire and so, the priest fails to start the havan for Sooraj’s wedding. Bhabho tells Lokesh that it is not possible to collect fresh firewood in such little time. Mohit says that the wedding can be completed by paper works, as he knows a local marriage registrar. Lokesh agrees.
Mohit calls the Registrar. Bhabho takes Sooraj’s sign by cheating. Meena remains upset as she will not get Sandhya’s pension, if Sooraj is remarried. The little girl carries the lamps inside the temple where Sooraj is getting married. As soon as she places it before God, Sooraj becomes mad as he sees the fire.
Finally, Sooraj’s truth is exposed before Lalima and her brother. He loses his calm and keeps shouting. Lalima leaves the wedding hall and breaks down; Lokesh comforts her. Sooraj is taken to bed. Ved slams Bhabho for cheating Sooraj. Sooraj gets up and asks for Bhabho’s explanation.
