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.
Dwarika refuses to believe a word of what Nagen says and asks Kumudini what the trust is. When Kumudini remains silent, Padma decides to put her hand over the Lakshmi `kalash’ and tell the truth. Kumudini admits she is from Shonaberi’s Saha family and was set to marry Dwarika. But before her engagement to him she was kidnapped by dacoits. Dwarika is shocked to hear this while Padma feels bad luck will descend on the family. Later, Kumudini tells Dwarika she did not tell him as she feared he would disown her. Dwarika feels hurt that she didn’t trust him. Later, Padma tells Kumudini that she must spend the night in the guest room and leave the house in the morning.
Gadadhar performs Maa Durga’s Sandhi Puja aarti dressed as a woman. After the `aarti’ Dwarika and Trilokya have a fight about Gadadhar’s attire. Trilokya tells Dwarika to stop Gadadhar from doing such `sadhanas’ in future. Gadadhar tells him that it is not their place to judge a great `sadhak’ like Gadadhar and tells Trilokya to refrain from interfering in the temple’s affairs. Padma feels bad seeing the brothers fighting and speaks of their childhood days when they wore matching clothes. Hearing this, Kumudini gets an idea. She decides to crease the shirt sleeves of all the brothers with the gila fruit’s seeds so that the clothes match. She tells Dwarika not to fight with his brother over Gadadhar but also asks him to ensure Gadadhar is not thrown out of his house.
Dwarika is certain that Nagen has abducted Rupmati Bai when Trilokya tells him that the temple guards saw a palanquin enter Nagen’s house at night. He decides to go to Nagen’s house. Jagamba stops him and says she will accompany him, but they will go in disguise. Jagadamba tells Nagen she is the queen of Nator and offers him 100 gold coins in exchange for Rupmati. Nagen agrees to hand over Rupmati to her not knowing that the gold coins are made of clay. Before Nagen can realise, Dwarika’s men rescue Rupmati and head for Janbazzar.
Nagen offers Rupmati Bai alcohol, but she refuses to drink and says she is not a courtesan singer and sings only devotional songs. When she begins her song, and her narration of Radha-Krishna’s story, Nagen’s guests get upset. Rupmati Bai hears Nagen’s name, realizes that he is not Dwarika, and wants to leave. However, Nagen’s men hold her captive. Nagen’s friends then go to Janbazzar to humiliate Dwarika’s family. But Ganesh recognizes them and tells Dwarika. Trilokya then tells Dwarika that his men saw a palanquin enter Nagen’s house at night. Dwarika is sure that Rupmati Bai is at Nagen’s place.
