Misfortune has visited the Modi family once more. Urmilla (Vandana Vithlani) had been feeling something bad was going to happen the entire time as they searched for Gopi (Devoleena Bhattacharjee) and Rashi (Rucha Hasbnis.)
Gopi had been kidnapped by Anurag (Manoj Chandila) the children’s tutor and so Rashi came to Gopi’s rescue.
What sticks with me is how Rashi jokingly told her mom Urmilla that her phone bill might come down during the ambulance ride to the hospital.
I could hardly hold back my tears as Rashi said to Gopi “I did my part as an elder sister today.” Rashi had stepped in the line of fire as the mentally deranged Anurag had swung a metal pipe with the intention to kill Gopi but Rashi was hit with the metal pipe in her head instead.
So Rashi asked Gopi to tie “Rakhi” to her once more and for the next life too and to please take care of the family and how she was aware that Gopi has always taken care of everyone and will continue to do so.
Rashi had the chance to say her goodbyes to everyone riding in the ambulance and she did a wonderful job in doing so.
She apologized to Jiger (Vishal Singh,) saying she couldn’t be a good wife, but that he has always been a very nice husband. She also told her mother in law Hetal (Swati Shah) that she appreciated how she always made her feel like a daughter and then she asked her mom Urmilla to take care of her children Tolu/Sahir (Ishant Bhanushali) and Molu/Samar (Eklavya Ahir.)
All the while each one of them was denying she would leave just yet, that Rashi would recover, but Rashi had a feeling that her life was coming to the end, she kept saying she didn’t think she was going to be alright.
I tell you that Rashi and Urmilla were an amazing mother-daughter pair for they were inseparable. Sadly, I must say I really don’t know how Urmilla will survive after the loss of her only daughter because theirs was not just a mother and daughter relationship but they were like very close friends.
So when the paramedic said Rashi is no more, Jigar in the most excruciating way cried out her name in unbelief and my very own tears began to flow.
Back home in the Modi Mansion, their Baa Janko (Aparna Kanekar) really took the news very hard and so when she fell to the floor in agony and grief, I cried right along with her too.
The loss this family will have to go thru is so painful to watch and everyone was crying out in grief, pain, and distress at the loss of their beloved daughter.
I really feel sorry for Gopi though because her sensitive heart is the one who will take it the hardest and I just hope and pray for her sake she never blames herself for Rashi’s death because it really was not her fault at all. It was the kid’s tutor who is to blame for her death. But I know Urmilla will be just the one to blame Gopi because that’s just how Urmilla is. And in a scene for the next show has Urmilla doing just that.
So I say it’s time out for finger-pointing and trying to use Gopi as the scapegoat all of the time. She is a human being and has feelings just like everyone else. Gopi does not need that kind of guilt put on her right now. She is hurting just as much as everyone else. Actually, I really hope that none of them blame themselves for this tragedy that has hit home once more.
I think it was a good idea for Baa Janko to have Ms. Savitha Ben their next-door neighbor come to take Tolu, Molu, and Vidya (Palak Panchal) to her house and away from all that happened for the time being. It’s amazing how this family is so protective of the children.
Well people, there will never be another Rashi and there will always be a void in the show since Rashi is gone. Tonight’s episode was explosive and it was horrifying to watch as the tutor swung that pipe that killed her and to witness Rashi falling down a flight of stairs.
I tell you I had used my entire box of tissues tonight and then some because I boohooed along with Jigar, Urmilla, Kokila (Rupal Patel,) Baa Janko, Hetal, Kijal (Firoza Khan,)
Grandmother, Madhu (Jaya Ojha,) Ms. Savita Ben, Paridhi, Gopi’s Uncle Jeetu (Urmila’s Husband/Gopi’s uncle,) Ahem Gee (Mohammad Nazim,) Dhaval (Ashish Sharma,) and poor little sweet Meera (Mazel Vyas.)
I just don’t want to believe that Rashi Modi is gone from us forever.
