Rana ji was in his room, Gayatri was cleaning his study. She takes the locket with a lock and thinks about the day Rana ji had given it to her. She drops it, and brings to Rana ji that she found a lock. He says he doesn’t remember it, she must keep it back. She says it is so tiny and is made up of gold. She says it must have a key as well. She says it can’t be of any door, but a locket of someone’s neck. Rana ji touches the chain in his neck with the chain.

She says if her questions pierce him as needles she won’t. She watches Rana ji thoughtful and says this is just beginning. She will keep on reminding him about all this until these questions stop hurting.
In the temple, Savitri opens the window and watches the candle flame going out because of wind. She thinks about her promises to Rajeshwari, she had succeeded in lighting two flames. Rana ji watched the flames going out and shouts at her to close the windows. He saves the flame. Savitri asks this means all stories are fake then, she says servants spoke in the palace that his first wife burnt them. These flames are the identity of Gayatri’s love and they are not let to go out for a minute. She says he claims to hate Gayatri, but his actions are just about love. Rana ji leaves the room, and at the door turns to see the candles.
