Bondita questioning Anirudh. Trilochan says he may not answer, its not wrong, I have read in Shastra, relation of husband and wife is pure. Ramanujh says marriage means such a relation between a husband and a wife. Sampoorna asks them to exchange garlands and tell everyone that the relation is made by heart, not helplessness.
Anirudh throws the garlands. He says our relation isn’t connected by heart. Bondita gets shocked. She asks why are you lying, our marriage is true. He says I will repeat it for you, our relation isn’t made by heart, we can have a relation like husband and wife, you are just my responsibility. Bondita asks why don’t you agree, maybe you don’t realize, I have seen the signs when we stayed in the small house, I used to smile thinking about you, my cheeks got red seeing you, same happened with you, you made a new world for me and always protected me. She says I know you also believe this relation, its our relation is also like others. Anirudh shouts stop Bondita.
He says I did all this as humanity. She says you have given signs that you believe our relation. He asks what signs. She says you do a lot for me, you agreed to come back home as you can’t see me upset, you care for me a lot. Trilochan says I have seen your relation, Anirudh you have made food for your wife, you made a swing for her comfortable sleep. Bondita says please accept, I beg you, stop this joke.
Anirudh says I didn’t smile thinking about you. He recalls Manorama. He says we can’t have husband and wife’s relation, try to understand, its a unique relation. She asks how is it different, we are also husband and wife. He says yes, I have filled sindoor in your maang, not because my heart wanted, its a drama, a lie, our relation is different, because our marriage was different. Bondita asks what do you mean, didn’t you fill sindoor in my maang and take seven vows, is this not my sasural. Anirudh says yes, I have filled your maang, I had no way to save you from a bad custom, I had taken promises of protecting you, I m bound to you by responsibility, not by heart, I will always keep that bond, I have got you educated, I wanted you to bring a change in society, you become an inspiration for others, our marriage was also a bad custom to stop another bad custom, nothing else, you are just a responsibility and will always be, but our relation doesn’t matter to me.
Bondita gets shocked. Anirudh says our relation has no other meaning, we can never have a husband and wife’s relation. He goes. She asks why is my marriage a bad custom. She cries. Sampoorna says because your marriage was happening with an old man, not Anirudh, that old man died during the rounds, you became a widow before getting blessed, your Sasural people were going to make you Sati. Bondita gets shocked. Sampoorna says you were unconscious, you don’t know, everyone knows that your marriage was just a compromise, you were about to get burnt alive, Anirudh married you to save your life, he wanted to save you from the bad custom of Sati, he filled your maang with sindoor, else his marriage was fixed with Saudamini, he broke his relation because of you. Bondita cries and says no, this isn’t true, its a lie.
Sampoorna says fine, ask Trilochan, Anirudh was helpless to take the vows, he didn’t get his wife in this house, he got a responsibility, a burden that will ruin his happiness, you have snatched his every happiness, he has done pity on you, you got everything, what did Anirudh did, his life is passing in solving his problems, you should be thankful to him, when you didn’t give him any happiness of a wife, then how can you ask for rights. She says your marriage with Anirudh is also wrong, you are too young, child marriage is also a bad custom, that’s why Anirudh told you so. Trilochan shouts enough, what’s the need to say the past, will it benefit, stop saying it. Bondita says no, this isn’t the truth, you all are lying, I will ask Anirudh. She runs to Anirudh and asks don’t you regard our marriage true, were you going to marry Saudamini, tell me, you married me to save me from Sati custom, am I a burden for you. He shuts the door and window. She shouts. She says I won’t go until you tell the truth, did Sampoorna say the truth. He says leave me alone, yes Sampoorna has said the truth, you are my responsibility, are you done now. Rishta tera mera…plays… They cry.
Anirudh’s inner self asking him what’s Bondita’s mistake, that she is growing up and feeling such. Anirudh says she is wrong to misunderstand my feelings. He argues with his inner self. Bondita says I don’t want to become a burden on Anirudh, I will leave this house for his happiness. Trilochan worries. Anirudh gets more in his dilemma. His alter ego asks did you fall weak and get scared, you had no arguments this time. Anirudh says I won’t fall weak, I didn’t hide anything from anyone. His inner self says you are hiding truth from yourself. Anirudh gets the cloth from his pocket, which Manorama tied to his wound. Anirudh says no, I m not in love with Azadi express, I was just impressed with her courage and passion. His inner self says you are still lying, truth is, you liked her, tell that its a lie, you got peace with Manorama on that mission, you smiled at that time, we are calling it love, Bondita thought she is the reason, but Azadi express was the reason.
Bondita says permit me to leave, you regard me bahu by heart right. Trilochan says I regard you this house’s pride and respect, you don’t regard me anything, go, run away from here, I didn’t think you will lose courage like this, what’s this relation that didn’t stand this storm. She says I m just a burden for Anirudh, why shall I trouble him. He says why someone takes up responsibility, when he regards you dear, think of it, you are special for Anirudh. Sampoorna looks on. Bondita recalls Anirudh’s words. Rishta tera mera….plays… She says I think I m special. He asks how can you leave everything, work hard for your relation, Anirudh always worked hard for you, trust your relation. Anirudh worries when his alter self says you are in love with Azadi express. Anirudh shouts no….. yes, maybe Bondita got the wrong hint, it was my mistake, what shall I do, I love Azadi express. His inner self says you said that the right person chooses responsibility over love, Bondita is your responsibility, whom will you chose now, love or responsibility, this test’s result will decide the kind of person you are. Anirudh worries. Trilochan says you fight for your relation now. Bondita runs back to Anirudh. Sampoorna thinks Trilochan encouraged Bondita.
Bondita goes to temple and plays shank. Anirudh goes out. He gets a box from a boy. He asks who has sent it. He gets Manorama’s message, I need your help, can we meet at our place near the jungle. He goes to meet Manorama. Bondita says I will not lose, I will make my relation with my husband. Trilochan smiles. She says I will fight for my relation, its unbreakable relation, I will win Anirudh. Anirudh meets Manorama. She asks Anirudh, will you marry me. He gets shocked.
She says our marriage won’t be true, it will be a deal to complete a mission, like Bondita’s marriage with you is like a responsibility, our marriage will be for the mission, you can understand such marriage, who can keep this relation where there is no expectation from each other, we can’t be related by heart and body, I have dedicated my body, heart and everything to my country, Viceroy is going to come, I want to find out their plan, its last option to marry you, become bahu of landlords and attend big functions of british officers, this marriage will be valid till this mission completes, will you help me. He thinks she has forwarded her hand for the sake of the country, but isn’t my step a way to go close to her. Bondita says maybe the way is tough, but I will never leave Anirudh’s hand.
Anirudh says I can’t marry you. Manorama worries. Bondita says one day will come when Anirudh gives me a wife’s respect. Trilochan blesses her and says I will always be with you in this tough phase. Anirudh says I had taken this decision before knowing about your mission, you had told it, I have already married Bondita’s responsibility, our relation isn’t of husband and wife, but I have a responsibility towards her, it won’t let me take any wrong step, Bondita doesn’t know that she is special and talented, I can’t do anything wrong, I will tell everyone that child marriage is wrong, how it can ruin little girl’s lives, I will start it with Bondita, I will end her Patni dharm madness.
Bondita acts like Anirudh and herself. She says I have decided to never run away from this relation. Anirudh says I will bring Bondita back on the path of studies to become barrister Babu.
