Sid says sorry for all that, I know how life passes without a dad. She says this case reminded you of all this, memories hurt a heart. He says I wish we could have some medicine to forget sad memories. She says if we feel pain, our mind starts neglecting it, we will be fine. He asks what’s your story. She recalls her childhood and says I have some work. He says I m sorry, I didn’t expect this reaction, I feel you also have a wound on your heart, maybe it’s a bigger burden than mine, we are living this broken life with the hope that this will heal. She asks does this happens. The nurse calls Sid for Riya. Sid says we have to go.
Riya’s mum says I had put hot tea near her. Sid asks Riya not to worry. Ishani says we can check the burns. Sid asks Riya does she feel anything. Riya asks what. Ishani moves the pen over the leg and asks do you feel any pain. Riya signs no. They worry. Riya’s mum asks what happened. Riya asks can I have ice cream. Sid says sure, the nurse will get it for you. Sid asks Riya’s mum to come out. He says Riya has lost all sensations of her lower body. Riya’s mum says no. Ishani says it’s a possibility of Refsum disease, we have to meet Riya’s dad.
Sid says if we lose time, it will be bad, please trust me, I will not let that man’s shadow fall on Riya, I will go and take his samples, I promise, just tell me his name. Riya’s mum says Rakesh Desai, MD of Desai company. Sid and Ishani see Rakesh’s name on the board of directors. She says wow, he likes to write quotes also. He says yes, we like to serve others…. She says we shall talk to him and explain to him that none will know about it. Sid says he won’t understand, I m being practical, will we let Riya die, we have to break rules and find new ways. Ishani takes Rakesh’s appointment.
Ishani goes to Rakesh’s office. Sid comes there as a watchman. He greets her. She gets shocked seeing him. He says I heard you have an appointment with Rakesh, you will need my backup. She says no thanks, I will handle it, go from here. He says you will need me. She goes. Rakesh says I got a call from Sanjivani, I thought Vardaan’s peon will come, tell me. She says your ex-employee Mukta Das, she ha come to the hospital, I understand this reaction, you are the father of the ill child. He asks what nonsense, you are believing her. She says relax, your name won’t come out, I just want your blood sample and eye test. He calls the security.
Sid comes there and punches him. Rakesh faints. Sid stops Ishani. He locks her and says you don’t know this. She says you are going wrong. Sid ties up Rakesh. Rakesh gets conscious. Sid says wait, I will take a blood sample first and then do the eye test. Ishani asks him is done. Sid says two mins more. Sid says you have symptoms of Refsum disease, it will be confirmed after tests, you gifted her this disease instead of taking her responsibility, such a creep. He opens the door and asks Ishani to come with him, else he will break the blood sample bottle. Ishani says so sorry Mr. Desai. She tries to free him. She says it’s not my mistake. Sid takes Ishani out. He asks her to sit fast. She says I will go by rickshaw. He says we have no time. She asks for a helmet. He says I have to wear it, I m a safe rider. She says you broke Rakesh’s nose. He says if I didn’t force him, how would we save Riya’s life. She says we are doctors. He says exactly, our work is to save patients’ lives. She says our wrong work will be known. He asks her not to lecture and sit. Rakesh shouts catch them.
