Megha talks to Kalyani, Pategara and Lalitanandmayi about Subbaraya"s disappearance. As every one of them goes on expressing their doubts, they come to a conclusion that he must have been to the Ashram. Megha assigns a responsibility to Pategara to go to the Ashram silently and rescue Subbaraya from there.
Subbaraya is making Ranganath"s goons dance on his finger tip at the Ashram. Meanwhile, Pategara comes there and is surprised to see Ranganath"s goons serving Subbaraya. He tells Subbaraya to escape from the Ashram when Ranganath is not there. If not, he will be killed by him. He is baffled.
While Subbaraya talks about rescuing his son-in-law Sudhindra instead of escaping himself, Ranganath comes there and says that it is highly impossible. Telling Subbaraya that within two days he will get what he is expecting, he sends him inside the Ashram. Then he threatens Pategara to kill him. Baffled Pategara starts shouting.
