He says that sunder is under the impression that this house is still his. he says that since sunder has found a new family, then he should also find a new house, for his new wife and family, wherein he can build his new world together, but its guaranteed that he wont be allowed in this house.

Lajo asks him not to say so, as he worships him, and cant hurt him ever. She says his anger is justified, but on her, not on him, and that she should leave, as staying away from them, he shall never be happy, and they too wont be able to live in peace without him. She begs and says that she shall leave. Sunder says that her efforts are in vain. She says that her bua says that new relations cant be made compromising old ones. Sunder tells her that he doesnt have a heart as he knows how to earn profit only. he then apologises to him for having disrespected him, but tells him of his promise to lajo’s father. thne he breaks off branch of the plant that her father had given him, and then keeps it inside the house, saying that now its on them, to help it flourish. they are all shocked. shakuntala is amused at the turn of events. they get to leave. revathy is shocked and pleads them not to go.

She touches his feet, and says that one day he shall like her. revathy asks him to get rid of the anger once and look at her innocent face. kishan eyes her and then extends his hand to bless her, much to their glee, but at the last minute, he retreats and walks out. She says that she is thankful enough that she got to touch his feet. lajo tells kishan that one day she shall herself help him wear the pagdi back again with respect, and shall be the reason that he holds his head high.
