Sushim shares that Ashoka’s death isn’t by accident. he goes quiet upon noticing a man overhearing their convo. The man goes away when Suhsim comes there to check.

Mahamadhya shares that people in Takshshila are having a tough time getting food items. Bindu asks him to make arrangements so the citizens can get items on lesser rates.
