She says that bani would never agree to this, and that she has apologised too. But he is adamant, saying that tani’s behaviour is beyond reprieve. She tries to say that all chidren arent the same. He tries to point out the stark differences between ishaan’s credible character and Tani’s completely reckless behaviour. She says that Tani has become like this, due to her stay in hostel. He retorts that rati too stayed in hostel, Ishaan’s sister, and she is someone any parent would be proud of. She says that Tani too is sensible. He says that he wishes she wouldnt have differentiated between Tani and Rati, and paid more attention on Rati instead. He says that she wanted tani to be a part of her society, and now thats all what her life is. He says that Rati is the only one who gives him hope now, as she has no hope from her tani.

Rati tells her aunt, that this isnt needed, as she is too young right now. But she is far from being convinced, saying that she would get her daughter to become fair, as thats very important today, as she realises, since she is dark, and she herself is always neglected. Rati asks her to let her study. But she doesnt let go, of her trivial matter. Rati says that she is pursuing MBA, and not medical sciences that she can help her. But her aunty is unconvinced and continues to give senseless logic. rati offers that she would search and tell her. The aunty is relieved a little, and focusses her attention on her daughter instead. Rati is amused and relieved too.
