Gunwanti is shocked to know of what lajo thinks about their relation. lajo stands tensedly. Lajo says that understandably chaman’s way of expressing his emotion was wrong, he had malice in his heart, his intentions werent clean and maybe his character is tainted too, but his question was justifiably right and asks what is she to sunder. she says that there’s some relation between both of them that still hasnt ended. she says that gunwanti must be definitely having the answer to that. gunwanti stands stunned and speechless. she thanks her eternally for having sacrificed sunder for lajo but still it feels at time that they are still related. She says that she is a mer village girl. Gunwanti smiles and then tells that she knows whats wrong and thats she doesnt have a sieve. Lajo is tensed. Gunwanti says that she always blurts out whatever comes to the heart, without the use of a sieve to filter stuff. She says that if she doesnt like it, then she wont come as often to this house and wont keep relation to both of them, saying that the reason she is so close to her and sunder is because everyone else is miles away, and that she is the newly wed bride of him, and when she shall become his great friend, then she shall know how much he loves her, assuring that the pious she herself seems from outside, she is way more than that from inside. lajo is shocked, to see her generosity. Gunwanti takes her leave. lajo gets emotional and teary eyed, and she asks her what happened. lajo hugs her and apologises profusely, while she is shocked.
