Later, the kids call Bhimrao and tell him that if he helps them take out the ball from the gutter, they will allow him to play along. When Bhimrao does as he’s told, the kids order him to stay near the gutter, so that he can help them out, the next time the ball goes inside. This behavior by the kids infuriates Bhimrao and he goes back home.
The next day, Bhimabai asks Tulsa and Manjula to gather clothes and give them to the laundryman. The latter refuses to take the clothes, saying that he will be punished by his people if he washes them. The kids get upset but Bhimabai tells them that they will have to wash the clothes, on their own.
Later that day, Ramji enrolls Bhimrao, Balaram, and Anandrao in school. When he’s asked about their surname, he lies to the principal. Ramji says that their surname is Ambavadekar. Later, when the teacher finds out the truth, he asks Bhimrao and Balaram to stand out of the classroom. Bhimrao complains to the teacher, saying that he isn’t able to hear anything, but the latter tells him that he doesn’t need to study, as he’s not going to become a barrister anyway.
In the preview of the next episode, Ramji tells his kids that they have to educate themselves to change the situation, so that people like them, should be treated equally.
