Varsha turns, shocked! She exclaims, Soham!!
Sulo asks from the kitchen who had come. Soham begs Varsha to hide him somewhere.
He pleads with Varsha, Mayi, police is after me, chasing me like crazy, Mayi I dont want to go to jail again! Mayi, ur the only one in this world who can understand my love, Ayi, Baba nobody is understanding my feelings! Im incomplete without you, Mayi! Please give me shelter here! I know you will help me, you are my real mother! Once this problem is gone, then you and I will go to Patna, I will repay all debts of your affection! In childhood u used to hide me in ur pallu, today also please hide me!
Varsha is crying and holding Soham affectionately. Sulo comes in calling and sees Soham. Her face hardens, she tells Soham, Dont take another step! There is no place for a gunda like you in this house!
Sulo grabs Varsha’s arm and tells her to tell Soham to leave quietly! This was a respectable home, not a criminals den!
Soham pleads with Varsha, I had come here with great expectations from you, please give me shelter, you wont disappoint me, naa?
Varsha looks undecided for a moment, then she flings off Soham’s hand, tells him, Dont even utter my name with ur dirty mouth! I am not ur Mayi, youre not my Son! You are a Goon! A person who doesnt respect women, who has no respect for his parents, he can never be my Son! Soham, 20 yrs ago, I made a huge mistake! I dont want to make any more mistakes! I have a chance today to rectify my mistakes and I wont lose this chance! I will take u to the police right now!
Varsha grabs Soham’s hand and goes to the door yelling, Police! Police!
But Soham throws off her hand and runs the other way to the back door. Two guys on bikes, probably plainsclothes policemen, chase him through Sulo’s house, but he escapes from another door, Varsha crying out after him to stop! Varsha cries inconsolably, Sulo tries to comfort her.
telling her she didnt do anything wrong, that if children go on the wrong path, parents try to punish them and show them the right way. That is a parent’s duty. Today u have done the duty of a mother, today u have helped Archu at the right moment!
Varsha says, No Ayi, Im not crying because of what happened just now! Im crying remembering the 20 yrs we spent in Patna. Ayi, I made a huge mistake! I was never a good mother to Soham! I could never give him good values! If he was brought up here, then he would never be on a wrong path like this! I am responsible for making him Bisnu Lala from Soham! A mother ensures a good future for her son, I couldnt give a good future to Soham! I am guilty towards Archu Tayi, Jeeju, to whole family for this!
Sulo consoles her saying, Varshu, calm down! You have repented for all ur sins! We all know that! You tried to reform Soham, gave him chance to mend his ways, you gave him his family, but hes going on the wrong path again and again! That is his fault! You have done all u could for him. But Soham, hes blinded by his love! Hes making one mistake after the other! He will have to pay for his mistakes!
Varsha cries, Sulo continues, Today Soham escaped but one day, police will capture him and put him in jail! I know Varshu, for a mother this is very hard but what can u do? Soham has chosen this dark future for himself! You just have to be strong to face these circumstances!
Varsha cries on Sulo’s shoulder and Sulo consoles her.

Soham escapes, then goes to a pavement dweller who was sleeping, wrapped in a mat. He forces the guy to wake up and shoves him off, telling him to get off, that he will sleep there. The guy protests that he was sleeping there, why is Soham taking his spot. But Soham shoves him off forcefully, claiming the spot. The poor guys leaves, crying. Soham lies down on the mat, covering his face with his scarf.
He removes the scarf and looks at Gauri’s photo again, saying, You are mine, Gauri, only Mine!
Gauri is sitting down in front of her dressing table, brushing her hair, Soham barges into the room and covers her mouth as she yells, Soham YOU?
Soham warns her not to yell, telling her he will take her with him today for sure! Forever!
Gauri removes his hand and suddenly hugs him! Soham is surprised.
Gauri says, Thank God Soham u came for me! I was sure u would come for me very soon and take away me from here!
Soham is in a daze, Gauri you…?
Gauri smiles and looks at him, You cant believe it? Soham, when I went away from u then I realized ur love was not one-sided! I also love you as much as u love me! (she cups his face, his eyes soften with love)
Gauri tells him, Soham ur not educated, but the sincerity in ur eyes, that means more to me than anything! And I love you a lot!
Soham smiles and cups her face, Then come away with me! Lets give everyone this good news! I dont want to fight with anyone anymore! I dont have anymore complaints! I got you, then I got everything I wanted! I will marry you and we will go to Patna! Will u go with me?
