Lajo and sunder lie down on the bed, under the starry sky. They drift off into an unimaginable sequence, as to how would she expect her groom. Going in a parallel dream sequence, lajo awaits the arrival of his knight in shining armour, on a white horse, dressed as a bride, and is excited when she sees him approaching with a sehra covering his face. He gets down and conmfronts her, while she lifts the sehra off his face with nervousness and added excitement. But as she sees the face, she is shocked and apalled. Scared she wakes up with a shriek. But he calms her down, trying to amuse her with the pampering that she is going to get now. Then he tries to get casually intimate with her, while she shys away. He gets a call from Dulari, his sister, and then rushes down, non resignedly. he leaves, but she is still tensed, thinking of the horrible nightmare and hopes that this never materialises.
The next morning, all are busy with the preparations, when sunder comes in saying that noone shall go anywhere, as the city isnt safe to go out. she insists, but he says that he is decisive on this. but after he leaves, his sister teases lajo that they shall go out, without anyone’s knowledge. They are amused.
Kishori and sunder come to the temple, where sunder prays that all this while, he only came for his business but today, he wants something for him and lajo, to be by their side, in every turn of their life, and make their life stable. kishori smiles, hearing this. They both ring the bell together. Then they turn around to find themselves confronted with narayan baba, who eyes them tensedly. gunwanti gives them prashad and then blesses sunder on his marriage with lajo. Narayan Baba tells them that his words might say anything, and they might mean something, but from the bottom of his heart, he shall always curse them, as the god might shower their blessinghs on them, but they shouldnt expect it from the father of an unwed daughter. He says that their love story shall never be consummated and solemnise. He says that just like gunwanti, lajo too shall curse her fate, when ill destiny befalls her too like gunwanti. he says that they shall have to pay for their deeds, and that sunder’s faults shall be penalised by lajo, and that she shall be such illfated. Sunder gets angry and says that he used to respect him, but today he freed him from that too, and says that their love and motives are pure and genuine. they are all shocked. Gunwanti stands tensedly. Sunder tells him agitatedly that it definitely shall, even though their love gets lost in the pages of history. narayan baba says that destiny has already played its bet, and they both shall see who wins it, the curse of an apalled father or the aggression of a lover.
