Shyama feels insecure thinking that Titir being an educated woman is apt for Nikhil. Rukmini chides Shyama for getting herself unwell before the recording of the song. Basanta questions Rukmini, who is overly concerned for Shyama's health. Basanta gets suspicious about Shyama's behaviour. Shyama feels guilty of lying to Basanta. The next day, Rukmini lies to everybody about going to a Guruji's 'kirtan' with Shyama. A suspicious Basanta asks Rukmini the reason behind taking an unwell Shyama.
