Chandra says you aren’t married to dharmas father,Nandini says no Im not,Chandra says why does she call you ma,Nandini says dharmas mother Prabha died while giving birth to her and so her grandfather,named me after her mother since I raised her,Chandra says who are you then tell me the truth or else I will have to arrest you for fake identity,Nandini says baba found me unconscious many years back.
Nandini says when I gained conscious I had lost my memory and since then I’m waiting for my husband,but fate doesn’t Want it and then when I came here in Magad I learned I resemble Nandini,and then when you called me Nandini I had a feeling that may be I’m Nandini and then I tried matching our personalities and then I found that’s not possible,Chandra holds her hand
and says look at these paintings this cradle these books,don’t they remind you of anything,this sword,Nandini says enough,please I have don’t remember anything and I don’t find any connection with this and only baba can answer to your question,Chandra says we shall meet him and find out whether you are my Nandini.
Chandra and Nandini on their way to Champa in cart,Nandini stumbles,Chandra holds her,Chandra says you can hold me or else you will fall down.Nandini thinks am I really his wife,is he the one I’m waiting for. Kartikeya says enough dharma,Bindusara has to know that I’m marrying you,and he has to respect you,dharma says no let’s wait, this argument between me and Bindusara will effect Champa and Magads relations which in turn will affect Champa people,Kartikeya says you truly are a queen you have all the qualities, A arrow passes by dharma pulling her dupatta,Kartikeya puts it back on dharma,Bindusara says this dharma came in between I was just practicing,Kartikeya says it could hurt her,bindusara says this is my arrow and goes as per my wish,dharma leaves,Bindusara says you care about her a lot,Kartikeya says she isn’t any ordinary woman,and know very well about her,bindusara points arrow at Kartikeya,Kartikeya says also I know what you are thinking,and it’s to kill me.
Nandini goes to baba,baba asks all okay is dharma here too,Chandra walks in,Nandini says baba it’s important ,tell me where did you find me,baba says near the river,you were unconscious,Nandini tells baba about the situation ,Chandra says baba please tell us how did you find her,baba says may be 8 or 9 years back,Chandra says be precise please,baba tells Chandra how and where did he find Nandini,Chandra says this means Nandini has also been some where for span of a year,Nandini try and recollect.nandini says I can’t,baba please tell me did you find me in queens outfit,am I a queen.
Baba says no you aren’t a queen,Chandra says don’t lie tell us the truth. Bindusara says Kartikeya why will I harm you and hugs him and thinks soon you will Marry my sister.( Elis tells bindusara about Kartikeya and Helina promised her that she will arrange her wedding with the prince she loves). Bindusara says come let’s have meals together. Baba says Maharaj she doesn’t know all truth,I know who left her there,her husband left her,Chandra says she is my Nandini,she has all qualities of Nandini,may be she met him in that one year,baba says no she may be similar but not your wife,she was wife to a very bad man,Nandini says why didn’t you tell me,baba says what would I tell you,that you were a torchered by your husband,Chandra asks who was that man,baba says I can’t tell you,I had promised not to reveal the truth.
Nandini says I want to see my family,baba says that family doesn’t want you,Chandra says but for me it’s important or me to know whether she is Nandini,tell me,baba says no I can’t,Prabha i gave you this life and I don’t want you throw back in hell. Nandini leaves crying and Chandra follows,baba says it’s true you are Nandini, wife of Chandragupta but in this life you never can be together.
Nandini says maharaj when you called me Nandini,I thought may be I’m the one and now I know who I am but still Im lost,I want to know what happened to me,I’m so helpless,all night I hold my mangalsutra and look at the moon and pray to see my husband but how fool I was as he didn’t even love me,you at least know that I’m not your wife but my life is still a secrete,and I’m lonely,Chandra says you aren’t lonely you have a daughter,you told me a mothers love is most precious thing and so come back Magad for your daughter,and you can cover your face and no one will question you as Nandini,Nandini asks but who am I.chandra holding her hand.and asks her to proceed,Nandini moves ahead,Chandra says you are my Nandini,I don’t know how will I prove that but you are the one,the tears in your eyes which hurt me as well is a sign,Chandra smiles and says these tears say you are my Nandini.
Pre cap : Nandini says thank you Yuvraj, bindusara takes her blessing and says on one hand your daughter forced to take my position away as Yuvraj and you called me as one.
Chandra says to Chanakya,Acharya she is the one,she is my Nandini. and I find something really fishy behind all this.
