He puts in some medicine, touches her with some herbs and reads something for her. He asks Rana ji if she is his wife. He nods. He asks where he has come from, what his name is, what he does.
Rana ji says his name is Indar, he is a soldier. Rana ji asks how much time she will take to recover. The man stands laughing, touches Rana ji with the peacock feather bush and says when one needs blessings, one has to keep head in procrastination. He must ask for His mercy, he will be granted for sure.
Laksh appreciated a servant, Kunwar ji hears this and pushed that servant out. Kokilla also gets in the room. Kunwar ji says that his wife has left home and he is upto this all rubbish again. Kokilla says that not Rana ji but atleast Laksh can give an heir to the palace. Laksh says he can’t promise this to him. Kunwar ji slaps him, Kokilla says it isn’t his mistake but Swarna’s. Kunwar ji says Swarna only can give an heir to the palace. He places a gun at Laksh’s head and asks him to call Swarna back, else he will shoot him to death. Laksh calls Swarnlekha. Laksh tells Swarna where she is returning, his palace and life are both empty without her. Swarna is happy and wonders what has happened to him. She promised that she will be here soon. Laksh tells Kunwar ji that she will be back soon. Kunwar ji says he didn’t shoot this time, but next time he will.
Rana ji was with Gayatri. A girl nearby says that her husband also loves her the same way. She asks her name. Rana ji says she is Rani… the girl, Mala, says that she looks like a Raani too.
Rana ji says that Gayatri has a high fever.
Kokilla does Swarna’s aarti. Laksh also smiles. Kokilla says she used to remember her daily. Laksh keeps a hand on her shoulder and says he missed her a lot, he asks how everyone at her house is. Kunwar ji says Laksh was so upset he had forgotten to smile even. He tells Swarna to go and check what arrangement he has done for her. Swarna goes inside. Kunwar ji holds Laksh on gun point again and tells him to do what he has asked him to. Rana ji keeps cloth on Gayatri’s forehead and face. He minces herbs for her medicines, sitting beside her.
Swarna sat ready in her room. Kokilla comes inside and tells her to smile, it is time for her to get united. She makes Swarna up and says that man has all his arms but a woman has her beauty, but she must know how to use it too. She puts on lipstick on Swarna’s face and tells her to attract her husband. It is her responsibility to keep him attracted to her. Swarna comes to her decorated bed, she thinks that her mother in law is right, she must also try on her own part. Today, Laksh felt interested in her, she must also give another chance to this relation. She hears footsteps and thinks about giving another chance to this relation. Laksh enters the room drunk. Swarna had taken a veil on her face, Laksh comes to the bed and thinks about Kunwar ji’s words. He holds Swarna’s hands. He removes her veil, and presses her face. He slaps her hard and pushes her away on the bed.
Gayatri wakes up. Mala comes and tells her to keep laying, she needs rest. Gayatri asks where she is. Mala says she is really lucky she has got Indar brother who loves her so much, it is because of him that she got conscious. Gayatri doesn’t get who Indar brother is.
