Ranganath is frightened and is going to Sudhindra, while Lalita and Pategara stop him. She says that after sending Sudhindra for funeral she will sit on the Peetha of the Ashram. He is shocked for a while. He shouts at her and closes her mouth. Then he goes into the Sudhindra's room. Sudhindra, who getting ready to go out, is shocked to see him.
Ranganath puts four conditions for him to go for Shankra's funeral ceremony. He is not in a mood to accept the conditions. Seeing this Lalita tries to oppose Ranganath. He does not care her. He makes Sudhindra to accept the conditions. Lalita is afraid of her future.
Sudhindra is doubtful that he will not be able to perform the rituals of his brother's funeral.
