Bondita says I m his new friend. Trilochan asks are you postmaster’s son. Bondita says yes, I will go now. Pandit asks him to sit and have prasad. She sits there. Pandit says your bahu didn’t come, maybe she doesn’t want to come and meet us. Trilochan says no, she will come. He sends Bihari to call her. Bondita thinks how will I meet them when I m here.
Trilochan asks Pandit to have food. Pandit says you are in some tension, you forgot the custom to play the shank before having food, if your Bahu doesn’t play the shank, then we can’t eat the food. Bondita worries. Saudamini comes and plays the shank. She smiles. Bondita thinks she has come to save me. Saudamini asks Maha pandit to let her serve him. Pandit asks is she Anirudh’s wife. Trilochan says no, she is not his wife, she is our neighbor, she is from a good family, she can play the shank, have food now. Saudamini serves the food. Bondita looks on. She thinks something fell in the water, pandit can’t drink that, it will be his insult.Saudamini sees her. Bondita says something fell in the water, change it, else it will be pandit’s insult. Saudamini keeps fresh water for pandit. Bihari comes and says Bondita isn’t at home. Trilochan says don’t say in front of mahapandit, maybe he gets upset and gives puja chance to someone else, I will punish Bondita that she remembers all her life. Saudamini thinks Bondita didn’t wish to hurt the family, but today there will be much drama, she will be out of this house and Anirudh’s life. She makes the maid put the curry on Bondita’s hand. Bondita screams. Her hair get loose. Everyone looks at her. Pandit says you said she is a boy, she is a girl, who is she. Bondita says I m Bahu of this house, Bondita, I request you to not leave the food. Pandit scolds her.
Trilochan looks on. Pandit asks does she want to be equal to men. Bondita asks is a woman not equal to a man. Trilochan shouts no, don’t argue. Bondita questions again. Pandit says she has lost her mind, she has done a sin, she insulted us, we won’t have food here. Trilochan apologizes. Pandit says she has to repent for her sins, she will have to bear strict punishment, she wants to be equal to men, now get equal to their hardwork. He stops a servant and asks him to keep the sack there. He asks Bondita to take the sack. Trilochan asks pandit to not leave. Bondita says I won’t let you leave the food. Trilochan asks will you bear the punishment, you can’t insult the brahmans, you go ahead and bear it, Lord is with you. Bondita recalls her mum’s words. Saudamini gets happy. Bondita goes to pick the sack. She finds hard and picks the sack. She takes the sack to the kitchen and falls down. Anirudh comes. He hears pandit saying senseless girl should get some sense, this girl will never do the sin of wearing boys clothes, she will never do it again. Anirudh asks what’s the sin if she wears boys clothes again, teach me the lesson if you want, she had worn those clothes as I told her to do so. They get shocked.
Trilochan scolds him and asks him to apologize to Pandit ji. Pandit says he got blind because of western lifestyle. Anirudh says I don’t believe that clothes matter so much. Pandit says girls and boys’ physical aspects and their work decides their clothes. Anirudh says I don’t agree, do women not work in the fields and at home, I gave Batuk’s clothes to Bondita and made her wear it intentionally.Trilochan asks did you lose your mind, what was the need. Anirudh says I was making her do the yoga.
