Lajo tells sunder, as he has kishori and murad on the bed, that there is no one here to help them. he says that they should have taken them to the govt hospital, and maybe they made a mistake. She finds the pendant that she had given kishori when she left in the corner pocket of the coat, and finds that it took the bullet, so that it wasnt fatal to kishori. She tells him that they havent made a mistake, as the lord saved their lives. He shows the pendant, and explains. While lajo prays, sunder eyes the fellow holding a sword against her, and is scared. He signals lajo and she flinches. The sikh asks who are they and says that whatever they have amongst them, he shall not allow it to soil their pious place. Sunder clarifies and tells them why they came here seeking for help. lajo identifies him as the caretaker and then says that she is the daughter of a Gurudwara’s caretaker in Rooranwallah. the sardar identifies her, and then tells her, that they cant let any trouble enter along with them. She says that its a human being first, and then the religion comes in. She tells them of their miraculous save. The sikh is surprised to see this. lajo asks him if only his religion people are the ones he has to take care of, and if its not his responsibility, for him to take care and help people who are in need, as a true sikh is one who believs humanity is above everything else. Sunder tells him that he is way mature and experienced as the biggest pious work is saving someone’s life and that they shall not go, till they are all safe.
