Sujata opposes to Basanta’s decision of inviting Krishnacharan and his family to their house for ‘Durga Puja’. She worries that Shyama’s dark complexion is going to harm her reputation in the neighbourhood. However, Basanta assures her that everyone will be proud of Shyama. Sujata then permits Shyama to take part in the festival. Nikhil tells Shyama that he will pay for Kesto’s operation, and she promises to pay him back. Sujata and Disha conspire to stop Shyama from taking part in the festival.
