Location: In the pond
Shiv watches happily, while anandi dances joyfully. She grows shy as she finds shiv watching her. He gives her a rose, which she takes shyly and they both lie on the ground, in the hay, enjoying each other’s company. While his hand is on her shoulders, she places hher hand on his chest. They have food together, feeding each other. They find a cute puppy to play with too. They play around in the waters, overwhelmed by their new found confession of love. They hug in a tight embrace.

Bhairo says that he too can present examples, and gives of all the other married happy couples in the family. jagiya says that they can spend the entire night discussing, but he is firm that he doesnt want to marry anymore, and thats not due to anandi. He says that after much wait, there has been peace and stagnancy in his life, and he cant risk that. with folded hands, he asks bhairo not to dicuss this with him any further. bhairo silently leaves.

Ganga knocks on jagiya’s door, and brings his clothes washed and ironed. She lingers around to say that she learnt something new in english, THANK YOU. Jagiya nods and gets back into work. She says that she was given a new life, by him taking her out of the hell, hence she says THANK YOU. Jagiya asks ganga to move ahead and think of the future. ganga says that he too should do the same, and follow his own advice. She says that bhairo wasnt wrong, and asks him to agree. Jagiya tries to stop, but she goes on saying that he should tell whats bothering him. She gives her own example, as to how he gave her the courage, to come out of ratan’s home and start a whole new life, happily with mannu. She says that she had to break her old relations, to start a new life, while he jsut has to start a new life, by moving ahead and forget the past and that it would be good for him and the family too. jagiya asks her to stop talking, which scares her.
