The Monday episode of Rajan Shahi's "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" started with Akshara coming down the stairs to join the families and everyone is in awe of her. Abhimanyu gets teary-eyed seeing her.  

Once it gets over, Suhasini tells them they still have some time for the pheres and they can do any other ritual that they want. Just then the Goenkas announce that they won't be stealing the groom's shoes. 

Later, Neil tells Akshara that he wants to wash her feet and put tilak. He asks Akshara to remove her sandals and the Birlas take them away. Aarohi calls it cheating.  

Neil then washes Akshara's feet but tells her that she won't be getting her sandals back. The Goenkas then tell them that it's time for the pheras and Akshara asks for her sandal back.  

Abhimanyu then lifts her and takes her to the mandap.  In the upcoming episode, we will see that the priest calls for the bride's parents for kanyadan.
