She says that she had the ladies have come for the help of the victims of the riots. she says that narayan’s daughter hasnt come, but as Lord ram’s servant. she says that they have come for taking care of riot victims, and hence if granny doesnt wish to give her water, its okay, as she has brought food and water for lajo, from the temple. She says that they have themselves come for this reason. she says that for this work, she has the permission from lord ram and just needs their blessings. granny asks her to take lajo to the temple instead, so that they can do whatever they want to with lajo, as she wont give them her blessings. they are tensed. Revaathy smiles though.
when gunwanti enters, lajo mutters for water in her sleep, she gives her, and chants. Gunwanti eyes the wedding suit, and then compliments her for having deserved that. gunwanti is however surprised to find narayan baba’s prayer bears beside the bed. she is boggled. lajo just then opens her eyes. Gunwanti asks if she is okay and she must be in pain in severe pains, and then asks about the beads. lajo replies that she saw those beads in the shop, when it was burning, as she remembers the goons putting it there. She asks about sunder, and tries to get up. Gunwanti helps her sit down, and lajo asks who is she. She says that she is gunwanti. lajo is surprised to know this and asks why the white clothes, and if she is in mourning. She tells her the true reason of the white. lajo apologises for having snatched the bridal dress from her, and forced her to drape in white. gunwanti sayss that she didnt hurt her, as she cant explain what she got having given away the bridal dress. Gunwanti then asks if she is sure that she got the beads near the shop. Lajo repeats and asserts herself, and maybe its of that person who burned the shop. Gunwanti is shocked. Gunwanti tells her that sarfaraz has been taken into custody for the burning of the shop. lajo says that sarfaraz is innocent as he infact even saved the shop and her life. Gunwanti begs her not to tell about the beads to anyone, as many hindus have such prayer beads and they wont be able to identify as to who exactly were the rioteers. she says that their own brotherhood shall fall apart and lahore shall be totally ruined. lajo agrees with her, and says that she cant aggravate the fire of riots. She says that sarfaraz is innocent and if he gets punishment then it shall be grave injustice to him. Gunwanti promises that if he is innocent, then she promises that he wont get penalised. Gunwanti thanks her and then leaves, saying that she felt nice having talked to her. She leaves. lajo is tensed and that she has to tell anyhow to sunder that sarfaraz isnt at fault. The screen freezes on lajo’s face.
Lajo’s wounds have made sunder restless and hasty, and therefore whether sunder and sarfaraz’s fight shall now end into a war, and if lajo shall be able to clear this misunderstanding, or she shall fall an innocent prey to the incoming calamity.

Lajo hears this and is apalled, as granny vents out her frustration at lajo. she tells him that the minute lajo came in the city,the riots started and even good people turns rioteers, and now if she steps in her kitchen, she shsll even turn her bahus against her. she tells him that it still isnt too late, and he can get rid of her, and send her back to rooranwallah. granny says that she would spread out a long list of girls for him. Sunder barely controls his anger and is tensed. lajo hears this all from inside and is distraught and apalled.
