She wished to stay alone for a while. In the temple, Mauli prays for courage. Nandini comes to her and explains she never intended to ruin her house. She only wished for a companion who respects her the way she was never respected. Mauli wasn’t convinced.
She says Nandini did what children does, they buy a new doll when one has broken and Nandini didn’t find a new one for herself even. She snatched her friend’s doll. She never considered she was breaking her best, childhood friend’s house. She told Nandini how much Kunal was important for her, that she won’t be able to live without Kunal. Nandini requests Mauli to believe her. Mauli says women have always bear restrictions, first from men and later from women as well.
Their makeup was always considered wrong, but today Nandini has legalized every restriction put on women. Anyways, she has lost everything, her inside is empty. She came to the temple to find some hope for herself, but why Nandini came here? Only hopeless people come to temples. She lifts Nandini’s chin and says she got everything, Kunal, his companionship. Nandini says it’s not easy to find or lose someone, she isn’t sure what’s going in Kunal’s mind.
Mauli says Nandini is the one for whom Kunal left home, she never dreamed Kunal can ever leave his house, his mother and Dida as well. Nandini was worried at once and says Kunal didn’t come to her, he didn’t even answer her call since yesterday. Both think where was Kunal then?
