Malini quickly reached the temple to stop the marriage of his son Neeraj with Rashmi an acid attack victim as soon as she heard this news from her neighbors. When she reached there all marriage rituals were over. Neeraj and Rashmi were standing in front of her with garlands in their necks. She didn't know how to react; scold him for marrying without informing her or hug him to maintain the family tradition. His grandfather married a widow, his uncle a prostitute and his father a rape survivor. 'It's a family tradition you have maintained.' They touched her feet for blessings.
