She is amused.
Meanwhile, the bus takes a stoppage at a Dhaba, oblivious to the commotion back in lahore, Sunder and jamaal get down too. he sits and caresses the dupatta and places it beside him,lovingly. he then eyes lajo’s pic, longing and remembering him. Meanwhile jamaal washes his face and hands, and does his prayers. Just then, the dupatta flies off, while he is busy eyeing her pic, and falls right on jamaal’s face, as he gets up after his prayers. As he ogles at the red dupatta, revelling in lajo’s scent and remembering their encounter, sunder comes and confronts him, asking for the dupatta with his hand held ahead. Jamaal lets go of the dupatta, and it falls on the floor. Sunder eyes it tensedly. he is about to trample the dupatta, when sunder stops him, and asks him to be careful, that he should look down while walking, as otherwise he might just fall on the ground. Jamaal says that whoever comes underneath his feet is trampled, hence he neednt look underneath. He picks up the cloth from underneath and then picks it up. Sunder says that this cloth might be normal for him, but in these, his heart is caught, and to trample that, its quite difficult. jamaal tells him that clothes only cover the meat, and his occupation is to take the skin off, and hence asks sunder to keep his heart controlled. Sunder tells him that the heart is useless if he doesnt know to soar high. jamaal guffaws and then says that his words reek of love and asks him to remember, that dupatta and the person wearing it are only used to heat up cold, winter nmights. He is enraged at women in general, and his lajo, in particular being objectified. Sunder tells him that this dupatta is tainted now due to his touch, and shreds it into pieces. he tells jamaal that he can keep the pieces, and he himself can keep his heart caught in them. he tells jamaal that when his ego would be hurt, he can use the shreds to cover the wounds. Jamaal eyes him tensedly. sunder turns and walks off, while Jamaal eyes him angrily. meanwhile the police come and ask pan fellows to identify Sunder, and they lead to jamaal, who gets to know that he has killed British official, Barnes. he smirks that two lions in amritsar are bound to be fighting. he denies having seen sunder and walks off. he gets Baraatiji inked on his arm, and is amused, remembering lajo addressing him by using that name. he thanks the fellow, and then walks off. The constable comes and ask for sunder, and he shows them the directions. they leave.
At the auction ring for horses, sunder puts a bet on a black horse, starting at 50, and when others bid too, he goes as high as 100, as he tells other people, that this isnt just a horse, but his lajo’s wish. when jamaal comes in announcing a straight jump to 200, sunder is shocked and startled to see him. they both confront each other tensedly. The screen freezes on sunder’s face.
