MOTI RAM cannot forgive himself for his sad neglect and cannot find peace unless he gets back his children. He is not even able to attend to his work peacefully an as a result meets with an accident in the mill and looses his right hand. With the help of gratuity funds and the Insurance policy he comes to Bombay with his wife where in course of time he comes into huge property of his wife's uncle and becomes a jeweller and a landlord.
