Yeh Hai Mohabbatein starts with Mrs. Bhalla slapping Raman (Karan Patel). She asks Raman is he not worried for them; does he think they are stone hearted and just he and Ishita (Divyanka Tripathi) have sorrow. She says you have hidden this from parents, you should know we are not so useless that we can’t keep your secret a secret, you had one year to tell us, but no, you thought just your heart broke and let others go to hell. Ishita says no, we could not contact each other, we did not talk to each other directly, Vidyut has sent the flowers from Raman’s side, and we did not tell anyone.
Mrs. Bhalla says I am not anyone, I am your mother, you are also a mother and can understand my sorrow, and I will not talk to you both, and tells them to leave. They all cry. Simmi says this is bad, you know mumma loves secrets, how can you hide it. Mr. Bhalla asks Simmi to stop it. Mrs. Bhalla says let them joke on me. Mr. Bhalla asks Ishita why did you hide this when you were our daughter, and Raman is saying about hypocrisy to your mother, even you are a father, what happened to you at Adi and Aaliya’s time, you were right as father and son, when are you wrong.
Raman says I know I did mistake. Mr. Bhalla asks Ishita did Mrs. Bhalla’s sorrow less than her sorrow, we were with you and left Raman thinking he is doing injustice with you, and you did all this, we are happy you both came back, but you gave us wound and tried to apply ointment, we regret this. Mrs. Bhalla says yes, Ishita did not understand my longing for Raman, when I used to cry every morning, thinking when will my Raman come back, I cried for one year, Ishita did not pity on me. Amma consoles her. Ishita apologizes and says we did this for Pihu, if Pihu knew this, she would have not got close to Raman, news would have reached Shagun (Anita Hassnandani) any way, sorry, I did not wish to hurt you.
Pihu comes and asks Mrs. Bhalla is you not happy with my coming. Mrs. Bhalla says how can this happen, I m happy, I m not crying, its tears of happiness. Pihu consoles her and asks Mrs. Bhalla to forgive them. Amma says don’t cry now, forgive everyone for my sake. Mrs. Bhalla cries and hugs Ishita. Raman and Ishita apologize to Mr. Bhalla. Mr. Bhalla goes. Ishita says he is annoyed with me, he feels I cheated him. Simmi says Papa needs some time, he will agree. Raman asks Mrs. Bhalla to forgive him. She hugs him.
Ananya talks to her friend. Her friend invites Ananya and Pihu in her birthday. Ananya tells Pihu that the girl is new here; we will go and get your dress. Pihu says my clothes are at Mani uncle’s house. Raman tells Pihu that he will take her on shopping and get new dresses. Pihu says I bought new dresses in Bangkok, I want to get that, the dresses will get short, I have toys there also, and I have to meet Shagun. Ishita thinks Pihu wants to meet Shagun. She asks who has to come for shopping, and sends Raman to get ready. Ishita tells Pihu that she will make her meet Shagun, as she promised to not keep her away from her mumma.
Pihu asks really, but Shagun never let me meet you. Ishita says there is a reason, when someone loves you a lot, they get possessive. Ruhi told you story of Krishna, both mummies loved him and he loves both of them, I know you will love Shagun and me, you are going there and will come to me also, I want you to spend time with Shagun, she will be missing you, go and get your things too. Pihu asks really. Ishita says yes, I will explain Raman. She asks Adi to take Pihu to Mani’s house, she will collect her things and meet Shagun, and you also meet Aaliya. Adi agrees happily and takes Pihu. Ishita thinks how to convince Raman. Raman asks why you sent Pihu to Shagun. She says Shagun can’t do anything, Pihu decided to leave Shagun and come to us, she has feelings for us, we should respect her feelings too, she loves Shagun, we should allow her to meet Shagun. She asks him not to get angry now, trust us and our love, I m sure Pihu will not go like that, Pihu has two mothers, just let her gather all the love. He fears to lose Pihu. She says she is our daughter, she won’t go. He says fine. She says I am proud of you.
Shagun asks Pihu what you will have. Pihu says nothing, I had much food, and everyone made something for me. Shagun gets angry and says fine, you get everything there, I will not make anything, take your belongings, and I will pack it. Pihu says no, I came to meet you, I told Ishi Maa. Shagun says you chose Ishita and Raman, not me; I will pack everything, just leave. Pihu says but mumma… Shagun calls her selfish to leave her and go to them. She says you get everyone’s love there, you don’t need me, you are going to leave me, just go; don’t show these tears to me, I can stay without you if you can stay without me. Pihu cries.
Mrs. Bhalla scolds Neelu. She talks to Ishita. She asks Ishita to check how much salt Neelu added. Ishita tastes the dish and says salt is fine, Pihu will come, don’t take tension. Mrs. Bhalla says no, I was thinking I made palak paneer for her and if she did not have it, it’s no use to make it. Ishita asks are you annoyed with me and Raman. Mrs. Bhalla says no, you did big thing to get Pihu, I felt if I lose you and Pihu, I was worried, when Raman said you are his wife by all rights, I got glad. Ishita says that’s why you are such a great mummy. Mrs. Bhalla says no, else I would have got best saas award, everyone feel I m modern and happening saas, and I just get nominated and lose. Ishita gives her idea to get annoyed with Raman, then you will get award, we did not pull anyone’s leg, listen my idea. They smile.
Mani gives gifts to Pihu. Pihu thanks him and is sad. Mani thinks maybe Shagun did something, so Pihu is upset. He gives her chocolates. He asks her not to cry, you can call me and I will come to pick you, tell me if you want something. She says thanks, and tells about her favorite teddy, she hugs it and sleeps, give this to Shagun, when she hugs it and sleeps, she will feel she is hugging Pihu. Shagun looks on and cries. She says Pihu you left me, why did you do this…
