Diya Aur Baati Hum's September 5th episode: Sandhya keeps thinking about the foreigner and the master plan of the Garjana. Shekhar tells all the girls that he is to take a test and decide who is to go for the next big mission. Manjari says that Sandhya is a fool, who will never qualify.
Each girl is given a gun and told to shoot on her head. Sandhya’s experience tells her that the gun is empty. She easily places the gun on her head before everyone and shoots. Shekhar appreciates her courage; he says, one who has the courage to sacrifice her life, is fit for the mission.
So, Sandhya qualifies for the next terror plot of the Garjana. Shekhar calls her aside. He wears a pair of surgical gloves and takes a blade. Sandhya pretends being scared. He makes a cut on Sandhya’s arm. She screams.
The neighbors of the Hanuman Gali criticize Lalima’s excessive dedication towards Sooraj. Meenakshi fuels them. They come to the Rathi house and say that they will never tolerate such shamelessness. They ask Lalima what her relationship is with Sooraj!
Lalima quietly makes sandal paste while she is being insulted. She stands up and replies that her relationship with Sooraj is like that between sandal and water. Bhabho tells the neighbors that it is a matter of her family and she will solve this.
Lokesh comes to the Rathi house and sees everything. He tells Lalima that no one will understand her selfless love and the society will keep talking foul about her. Lalima says she cares least about the society and she is happy to love Sooraj. Bhabho hears their discussion.
