Mangroo and Hemvati are discussing about making arrangements for Champa's marriage. Hemvati shows Mangroo some jewellery that she plans to give to Champa. Champa asks for the waistband also; Hemvati tells her that she will not give it to Champa and asks her to go and mind the kitchen. Mangroo tells Hemvati to give Champa the waistband as well, but Hemvati reminds him that they have other kids as well. Mangroo tells her to think foremost about Champa's marriage since they would already be failing to fulfill one condition. When Hemvati asks about it, Mangroo tells her that he had promised the groom's family that he would bring the baraat on his boat; but now that their boat is lost, he wouldn't be able to do so. He decides to go and speak to the groom's Father and explain the situation. Hemvati decides to go with him and they ask Champa to lock the door behind them.
Phulwa is sitting on the ground waiting for her neem tree to respond. She suddenly hears moaning and gets up to look all around. She goes inside the forest slightly and sees a man, lying on the forest floor, writhing. A gun is lying near him and blood is oozing out of a wound on his leg. Phulwa takes a step but the man is alerted by the sound of her feet on the dry forest leaves. He picks up the gun and aims it at Phulwa and asks her to leave the place. She goes away. He tries to get up again, but falls down due to the pain and loss of blood.
In the village, Mangroo calls the groom's Father. There are celebrations going on in the groom's house. Mangroo wishes the groom's Father and tells him that the arrangements for the marriage are going on fine. At that time, the police come and tell everybody to shut down their shops, as some bandits have entered the village. Hemvati tries to engage the shopkeeper by buying some chana while Mangroo continues his conversation. The groom's Father asks Mangroo to be careful about the size of the groom's gold ring as otherwise he would have to wear it on his little finger. Mangroo assures him that he will definitely look into it. While conversing, Mangroo tells Champa's would-be Father-in-law that a certain problem has arisen in his boat, due to which he would not be able to bring the baraat by way of river. The groom's Father assures Mangroo that it's not a big issue at all; the baraat could come by bus. He requested Mangroo to arrange for the payment of the bus. Mangroo is shocked. Hemvati asks him about what has happened. Mangroo tells Hemvati that everything is fine and that the groom's Father has agreed to let the baraat travel by bus. On insistence of the police, the shopkeeper downs the shutter and both Mangroo and Hemvati hurry home.
The dacoit is lying on the forest floor with the gun clutched in his hand; he suddenly jerks up and finds Phulwa sitting beside him and trying to touch his wound. The dacoit is infuriated and asks Phulwa harshly what she is doing there when he had asked her to go away. Phulwa shows him a sheaf of neem leaves and tells him that the leaves, if tied to the wound, will ease his pain. She then places the leaves on and around the wound and ties them in place with one of her hair ribbon. The dacoit is touched and gives her a golden necklace (the same one that the older Phulwa gives to the small girl, Neha in the first episode). Phulwa refuses saying that her Father has told her that no goods are needed in friendship. The dacoit asks Phulwa to join films as then she would earn a lot of fame there. Phulwa laughs and tells him that her brother, Babu would actually be famous while she would be content to marry the ice lolly vendor, Ramsharan and travel with him all around. The dacoit then asks Phulwa her name and then extends his right hand. He then asks Phulwa to tie her other ribbon on his wrist. Phulwa does so, and while tying the ribbon tells the dacoit that she feels that she is tying a rakhi around a brother's wrist and that from now on, he would have to protect him. The dacoit tells Phulwa that he would certainly do so. Phulwa is happy and tells him now that they are brother and sister, she could ask for anything from him. The dacoit is suddenly annoyed and tells her that she also has put a price to their relation. He then empties his pockets of all the ornaments he was carrying and throws in on the ground, in front of Phulwa. She is a bit perplexed but then tells him that she doesn't need all those ornaments as they are like iron and copper to her. Rather she wants him to answer her question truthfully. The dacoit is surprised when Phulwa asks him about where she could find God as she had some very important questions to ask. The dacoit smiles in a hurt manner and tells Phulwa that if God was indeed present on earth, then all such bad things would not have occurred and that God must indeed be residing underground. He then blesses Phulwa and goes away.
Phulwa goes to the village well and peers into the water. She sees her reflection and after sometime calls out to God. Getting no response, she is dejected and gets up to go home when Champa comes running. She asks Phulwa what's going on since their parents are also worried but nobody was sharing anything with her. Phulwa keeps quiet; Champa then asks her that if it has something to do with her marriage and whether the marriage is happening or not. Phulwa smiles at her sister and assures that her marriage would definitely take place.
The next morning, Mangroo and Babu goes to the village market. Mangroo discusses about the cost involved in the travelling of the baraatis to and fro from the village, but is hapless when the cost of the same comes to more than Rs. 7,400/-. He then goes to the Senior Thakur and requests him to help them getting Champa married, as now he had neither the land nor the boat. The Sr. Thakur looks at the Junior Thakur and then tells Mangroo that they would certainly do something to help Champa get married but insisted that Mangroo thinks further about incurring the cost. Mangroo promises to return every Rupee by working hard.
Phulwa goes to the river bank, to find Chunni dancing around. She asks Chunni why she is so happy. Chunni tells her that somebody has died in the village and now her Father would be able to sell wood for funeral; as a result of which, they would be able to eat heartily that day. She asks Phulwa to join her in her dancing but Phulwa tells her that she has some more important work to do and that she was searching for God.
Meanwhile, the Sr. Thakur tells Mangroo that he would be able to give Mangroo the money, provided Mangroo transfers the ownership of his land to the Thakur. Mangroo is shocked, and so is Babu. The Thakur tells Mangroo that even Lakhiya ahs agreed to not contest for the land if Mangroo sells it to the Thakur and that in fact, Mangroo is getting paid for a piece of land which does not even belong to him. Lakhiya arrives at the Thakur's place at that time and tells the Sr. Thakur that he has no issues if Mangroo sells his piece of land to the Thakur. The Senior Thakur then tells Mangroo to think and decide what to choose – his daughter or his land.
On the river bank, Chunni tells Phulwa that God resides in the river since when a person dies and his/ her body is turned into ash after the cremation, the ash is then submerged into the river water, as a result of which there is a union of the five elements with the divine. Phulwa thinks about the answer and then decides to go into the water, in search of God. Chunni tries to stop her, berating herself for answering in such a fashion. But Phulwa catches hold of a cow and holding it's tail, enters in deep water. After a while, she dives deep while the cow returns to the surface and goes back. Chunni panicks and calls out for Phulwa who is nowhere to be seen.
The Sr. Thakur throws a wad of notes on the cot and asks Mangroo to pick it up. Mangroo thinks of all the insults heaped on him for being a boatman and how he would never be able to become a farmer. He walks slowly towards the cot as Lakhiya makes fun of him silently.
Meanwhile, Phulwa suddenly emerges from the water. Chunni is happy to see her and yells at her to come out of the water. Phulwa tells Chunni that she has to find her Baba soon as she has something very important to say.
