With Ruhi and her Ishima separated, the mother and daughter are having a hard time living away from each other. When Raman informed Ishita that Ruhi is going to come to the Navratri puja and stay with them for a few hours, Ishita will be so excited with the news that she plants a kiss on Raman's cheeks.
Raman and Ishita are in love and though they have not expressed it to each other in the exact words, they are aware that they are in love with each other. But when Ruhi was snatched away from Ishita, the couple have some what become distant. Raman, who had promised Ishita that Ruhi will be back living with them very soon, has for time being managed to get Ruhi to visit her Ishita for a little while.
Though Raman has kissed Ishita previously, this is the first time Ishita has kissed Raman. Though Yeh Hai Mohabbatein primarily deals with the custody case, the love story between the lead characters, Ishita and Raman too has taken an important part in it.
