She takes him to her home. It was just a single room. One side few necessary things for cooking. Other side a small cupboard. A table, chair and a bed.
Sanskar was thinking: is this her home? This much small? This is not equal to my freshroom also. How can she manage her life here.
Ragini brings food for him.

San: (shockingly.) What? Morning 4? Why?
Rag: in this colony only one water supply is there which starts at 4.30 and stops at 5. All colony people use that water only. So to get water you have to wake up at 4 to stand in queue.
San: what? This much struggle only for a single bucket of water.?
He remembers how he wasted lot of water daily.
Rag: yes. Now sleep. GN
Sanskar wakes up and sees sun rising, he remembers swara’s words. ‘have u ever seen sunrise?’
San: (shouts loudly and happily) I saw sunrise.
All were luking at him weirdly including Ragini.
She goes near to him. In slow voice

San: still happily and loudly. Ragini see sunrise. It’s very beautiful.
Rag:(slowly) sanskar sun rises daily.
San: but am seeing first time.
Rag: now stop shouting. Take water and let’s go.
San still in same condition repeating words. Really very beautiful sunrise.

They both get ready.
San: how will we go? Do u have bike?

Sanskar gets happy unknowingly as Ragini mentioned him as friend.
