Suruli becomes attracted to her, as she picks her books first from the mess. He takes the duo to his village, arranges a home for them, and even gives some money he saved for myna's mom to start as a very small snack vendor. He also gets myna into the school where he eloped from, and she keeps studying. 8 years later, suruli is a hard-working kooli in the neighbouring town and myna is preparing for her +2 exams. She attains puberty and love blossoms between them, which is despised by myna's mom who sees suruli as a not-worthy groom. Though Mynaa's mother assures Suruli of getting them married, she changes her mind and arranges for Mynaa to marry a man working in Dubai.
