Hema drags Vidya back home and berates her. As punishment, Hema goes to scald Kaushalya but Vidya promises her aunt that she will stay away from Raghav and his wife. Hema says that she will not punish Kaushalya and scalds Vidyas hand instead! Kaushalya apologises to her daughter for her mistake. On the other hand, the priest gives Raghav and Uma a list of the prospective brides. Uma sees a name struck off, but is still able to read Vidyas name. Meanwhile, Kaushalya falls ill in the middle of the night but her family refuse to hear Vidyas plea for help. Vidya escapes and goes to fetch medicines for her mother. Vidya meets the doctor who gives her the medicines. However, on her way back, she is confronted by Harsh and his goons. Harshs goon breaks the medicine bottle. Just then, she sees a truck approaching and seeks help from a boy who offers her a lift. The boy turns out to be Raghavs nephew Cheenu (Manish Naggdev). Harsh then sees Vidyas earring fallen. Cheenu and Vidya get talking, and she mentions that she had seen his cousin, Sagar, swimming. Vidya reaches home but is caught red-handed by Hema. Hema demands to know from Vidya where she had gone, so Kaushalya replies that she had gone to fetch medicines for her. However, Vidya has no medicine to show, so Hema drags her out of the house and calls out to the neighbours. Hema slanders her name. Just then, Harsh arrives there and says that Vidya had come to meet him.
