kausar follows the pigeon’s trail, excited that it would lead him to lajo. meanwhile, the pigeon that hovers over jamaal’s kabeela, is shot by jamaal, who says that now no one, neither her pigeon, nor her baraati shall save lajo at all. Kausar is apalled as the pigeon comes dead, on the ground. meanwhile, he then enters, and again finds lajo trying to alight the diya. lajo says that she shall never let it douse, as till its alight, their love shall survive too. he says that their love shall survive only when sunder is alive. lajo is shocked at his betrayal, that he made her speak her name as aisha. He tells how he killed the pigeon and got sunder killed too. She is shocked as she finds the diya dwindling away and finally dousing. lajo prays to the lord that this cant be, as he cant do this. she says that she cant live now, and begs him to kill her, and keeps finding some weapon or the other. He ties her saying that he shall not kill her, nor shall she let her do it herself too, as he owns every blood drop. she says that her life belonged to sunder, and shall always. He says that even the lord is gracious on him, his wife shall give him an heir, while sunder is out of his way. he says that she is his aisha. She says that she is baraati’s lajo, till her dying breath. he refrains, and then leaves in disgust, while she is apalled. lajo is frustrated thinking that its a tough examination, that she cant even die on her own will. As she is asleep, she wakes hearing the ardaas, and is overwhelmed. lajo eyes that the diya is still alight, and considers it as god’s signal, to tell her that her baraati is still alive, and her faith and her love is alive too, and that this love story that has started shall continue. She begs the diya to stay alight, as it being alight, is the indication of her sunder’s lifeline.

kausar arrives, and finds sunder hung like this, and desperately gets him down but finds him dead, not moving at all. She eyes the bangle and thinks that he always believed that his lajo was alive, and she took a little long to come. yakub comes and evilly comments that this forlorn lover went to the lord. when she finds him smirking evilly, she understands that he didnt commit suicide, but a murder, thats done by him. he asks if he has any evidence of it, and the whole world shall say that he died a lover’s death, and their love story shall not fulfill now. kausar says that it didnt happen, because yakub and Mariam’s couldnt consummate. she eyes the wall, painted with Baraatiji Ki lajo, and tells him that he shall face their curse and ire. Yakub says that he came as a dead man, and shall go as one. the constable asks whats to be done. Yakub asks him to be thrown on the streets, to be eaten by birds. kausar asks not to anyone dare to touch his body, as he wont be buried, but burnt according to hindu rituals. yakub reminds her the rituals, and she says that she shall do it as per his customs. He allows her this much, sarcastically, and then leaves. she is apalled.

The priest explains her the rituals and she performs them. he comments on her gallantry and her humanitarianism. she says that partition has caused this humanity to disappear in people, and hopes that one day, this love and humanity shall bring the warring countries back together. they are then ready to set the funeral pyre afire, and just then a log slips, and when she picks it up, and is about to put it back, kausar notices movement in sunder’s face, as he somehow opens his eyes, dreamily and is shocked to see it. the priest is shocked, as she hurriedly removes the log, and says that this is miraculous, and god’s pious soul, he is, to have survived.
