Radhika indirectly tells Dev that he should ask Barkha why she was not forgiving her. Dev feels that it is high time Barkha should let bygones be bygones and forgive Radhika. The next morning, everyone is elated when Maheshwari regains consciousness. Later, Dev tells Padma to inform everyone to assemble in the hall as he wants to discuss something very important. Meanwhile, Viraat gets irked when he is forced to work in the mutt. On the other hand, Dev confronts Barkha and asks her why she still holds grudges against Radhika. Barkha is shocked and gets worried, but before she can say anything, Padma tells Dev that Radhika will have to undergo a test to verify that she has no bitterness against Barkha.
Choti Bahu is the love saga of two soul mates Dev and Radhika.
Radhika, a Brahmin by birth, was adopted and brought up by a family of weavers in a small town called Rawal. Dev, whose family has been in the service of Rajpurohits for generations, visits Rawal as a child on the occasion of Radhashtami. Dev and Radhika meet each other and become good friends. Radhika and Dev's families tie them in the bond of marriage in their tender age.
Maheshwari (played by Pragati Mehra), the eldest bahu of the Purohits, hopes to inherit Dadaji's property. However, her plans hit a snag when Maheshwari realizes that Dadji has willed all his property is in the name of Choti Bahu.
Undeterred, Maheshwari decides to find a docile girl for Rohan (played by Apurva Agnihotri). Maheshwari plans to own the property by controlling and manipulating the Choti Bahu and to this end chooses Radhika for Rohan. Destiny brings Dev and Radhika together after 15 years, when he returns to Rawal after 15 years to find out about Radhika, Rohan's bride.
Will Dev recognize Radhika? Will Radhika marry Dev or Rohan? Will Radhika become the Choti Bahu of Purohit House?
