At night, Rana ji comes to his room and finds Gayatri sleeping beside a wall outside his room. He looks at her with pain, sits besides her and caresses her face. He asks Gayatri for forgiveness, he deliberately hurt her. He recalls hitting his own self with the hunter, and the cloth of dargah had fell over him, taking him out of his hypnotism. He had cried and questioned himself why he is punishing himself, why is his head banging. He wondered why he was conciousless. He remembers Gayatri putting on turmeric and didn’t remember anything afterwards, and had waken up from a nightmare. He felt that he was being shown that nightmare, then recalls all about Rajeshwari. He holds the hunter and says he has been a puppet in the hands of Rajeshwari. Today, Rajeshwari wanted him to take the life of his life, he says that now this puppet’s string in not in her hands. He will hold the sword, but this time neck won’t be Gayatri’s.
