Dwarika finds out that Nagen visited the Annapurna temple site and decides to guard it. However, Kumudini worries that Nagen may be plotting against them. Nagen who has asked the British to demolish the temple’s lion gate rejoices in his home. Meanwhile, at the temple, Gadadhar notices that the `tantriks’ are misusing their powers to mislead innocent people who come to visit them rather than pray to Ma Kali. Later, he sees Tantrik Chandrabodhan holding a young girl’s hand and looking at her with lust-filled eyes. He decides he cannot allow this sin to take place within the temple’s premises.
Gadadhar sits deep in prayer at the Kali mandir while Haran Thakur reaches the temple site and says he will do the `bhit puja’ for the Annapurna temple. Gadadhar gets a vision that Dwarika’s stole catches fire and decides to go there immediately. Meanwhile, as Haran Thakur offers ghee oblation a spark files and sets Dawarika’s stole ablaze. Kumudini douses the fire with Gangajal and saves Dwarika’s life but he falls down unconscious. Finally, Gadadhar manages to revive him with his prayers. Gadadhar says there is someone who doesn’t want the temple to be built here and they should stop the puja for now.
When Hriday goes to give the `Mangal Ghat’ or holy pot to be used for the `bhit’ puja to Dwarika, it falls and breaks. Dwarika is surprised how if fell even though he had held the pot. Gadadhar feels this is ominous and goes to the temple to pray. Jagadamba gets worried but Dwarika says he will go ahead with the `bhit’ puja. Dwarika tells her that since Gadadhar will be doing the puja, he will deal with any untoward incident that happens during the puja.
When Gadadhar fears that the poor won’t be fed on Mathur’s death anniversary, Jagadamba and Dwarika assure him that the `Kangali Bhojan’ will take place as usual. Kumudini joins Dwarika in feeding the poor and helps a man when he chokes on his food by patting his back and offering him water. Padma refuses to come for the function while Ramchandra feels people will sing Jagadamba and Dwarika’s praises after the Annapurna temple comes up. However, Ganesh supports Dwarika and doesn’t understand why his parents Ramchandra and Padma are creating a problem. Gadadhar tells them that the `bhit puja’ can be done after one day.
Kumudini teaches Sarada to read and write and gets her Vidyasagar’s `Bornoporichoy’ alphabet book to read and a slate and chalk to practice writing the alphabets of the Bengali language. Sarada’s mother-in-law supports her but tells her to inform Gadadhar about it. Later, Sarada goes to meet Gadadhar at the temple and asks for his help in writing some of the alphabets. But Gadadhar tells her he can’t help her as he would avoid going to school. Sarada feels he is deliberately refusing to help her and leaves. Gadadhar wonders if he will now have to learn because of her and asks Ma Kali to help him get out of this situation. Next day, Kumudini gets ready to go to school. When Kumudini feels anxious about not knowing English and wonders how she will speak to her teachers or understand what they are saying, Jagadamba reassures her and says will soon get used to it.
When Dwarika tells Gadadhar that he has been tirelessly looking for Kumudini everywhere, Gadadhar tells him he will pray to Ma Jagadhatri so that he can see her. Dwarika then sees Kumudini’s feet and recognizes them. She runs away when he walks towards her, but he follows her into the jungle. Kumudini refuses to come before him as everyone is at the temple and he would be humiliated in front of everyone. She goes to the ghat and thinks of killing herself. However, Sarada stops her and tells her if the Divine Mother wants them to come together then nothing can prevent it from happening. Soon Dwarika reaches the ghat and hearing him call out her name, Kumudini runs away from there. Dwarika finds her anklet on the ghat’s steps and realizes she is alive. He tells her if she doesn’t come before him, he will enter the turbulent waters of the Ganga.
After eating the `bhog’ Annada and Kamala meet Kumudini at the ghat at night. Kamala advices her not to come before Dwarika till he learns to value her love. Kumudini tells them how Nagen and his men chased her in the jungle. She says Gadadhar brought her back from the jungle and let her stay in his house. Sarada also comes there and tells them that Dwarika and Kumudini will be reunited if it is Ma Jagadhatri’s will. Next day at Ma Jagadhatri’s puja, Jagadamba makes Dwarika offer a saree and jewellery in Kumudini’s name and pray for her. This makes Ramchandra angry. Later, Padma tells Jagadamba that she will not accept Kumudini even if she is found and they have a fight over this issue.
After meeting Dwarika and seeing how much he loves Kumudini, Rudreshwar realises that Nagen lied to him about Kumudini being abandoned by her husband. He decides not to help Nagen anymore. However, he doesn’t tell Dwarika that Nagen was the one who had brought Kumudini to him. Later, Dwarika goes to the temple and refuses to leave till he finds Kumudini. Sarada tells Kumudini about it and says they are destined to be together. She tells Kumudini to pray to Ma Jagadhatri who will take away all obstacles from their path. Dwarika waits for Gadadar to come out of the Kali mandir and asks his brothers to go home. Later, Kumudini sees him sitting on the ghat and gets him `bhog’ to eat. Dwarika is certain Kumudini got the `bhog’ for him and calls out to her as he eats the `bhog’.
Nagen promises Haran Thakur more money than he earns in an entire year if he spies on Gadadhar for him and finds out where he has kept Kumudini. He tells him that after he finds out he must tell him in advance about it so he can get eminent people from society to the temple and expose Gadadhar and have him removed. Later, Nagen meets Rudreshwar and instigates him against Gadadhar. When Rudreshwar says he must pray to Ma Kali to understand how Gadadhar performed the miracles at his site the previous night and how he managed to take away all his powers.
Rudreshwar refuses to believe that Ma Kali is angry with him. He blames Gadadhar for plunging his prayer site into darkness. He tells Gadadhar that only if he succeeds in lighting up all the lamps will he be allowed to leave with Kumudini. Gadadhar tells him that Ma Kali is the very source of light in the universe and if she wants, she will light up all the lamps in an instant. He prays to Ma Kali to not just light up the prayer site but enlighten the minds of the believers who worship her here. After he completes his prayer, the lights of the prayer site light up. Then suddenly a fire encircles the Idol, and an angry Ma Kali appears. Rudreshwar is both frightened and awe struck to see Ma Kali in this form. But Gadadhar begs Ma Kali to return to her maternal benevolent form and not destroy everything. Ma Kali is pacified, and the raging fires disappear. Gadadhar takes an unconscious Kumudini to his house and tells Sarada and Hriday not to tell anyone that she is there.
