Anandi who sees this scolds the boys and helps him to get up. The man gets impressed by this girl.
The man is Bharau Singh. He has come seeking alliance to his son. He visits Jan Singh's house who is none other than the father of Anandi.
Bharau Singh and Jan Singh fix the marriage of Anandi with Jagadish Bharau Singh's son.
Anandi also falls in the mud and makes herself to look shabby. She returns to house and finds the same man in her house. She childishly tells their parents that she already has met this man. The boys were playing naughty with this man and that she had scolded them.

When everyone sits around the table for lunch Anandi had to look on. She is not allowed to eat until they finish. Just to make Anandi to wait a little more Jagadish eats slowly and eats more. Anandi boils inside. As soon as he leaves she sits happily to eat. The old lady tells her to eat from the plate of her husband Jagadish. Its only Sumitra who is supportive to her. She consoles her and tells her that it is a custom to eat in husband's plate. So Anandi crying takes some food and eats and starts crying. She is consoled by Sumitra.
Anandi, Jagadish and their friend Suguna go to a temple. Jagadish to tease her tells her to keep her eye closed so that Lord Shiva appears before him.
Suguna meets her lover Pratap and keeps talking with him. Jagadish thinks of hitting Anandi as she passes by with a stone and break her head but then sees her seeing him with gazing eyes and throws down the stone with frustration.
