Raja was the King of Kirana Bazar and the surrounding areas—his law was pay ‘Hafta’ and live peacefully. In case of defiance, Raja’s muscled arms had enough strength to punish the culprit.

On the other hand, there was Laxmi, a Tiffin Carrier girl, who not only defied Raja but condemned him publicly for squeexing the blood of poor and hard working people in the form of ‘Hafta’—

Raja couldn’t do a bit against her—because Laxmi’s Dadu (Grandpa) a Cart-puller, had an immense liking for Raja.

It so happened—Dadu breathed his last while pulling the cart in scorching sun. Municipality squad demolished the ‘Jhoopad Patti’, where Laxmi was living—making her homeless. In the night, when Laxmi was sleeping on her Dadu’s cart, Kallu, a local gunda, tried to molest her. Raja reached the spot in time—rescued Laxmi and forced her to live in his house.

Bastiwalas branded Laxmi as Raja’s keep. And Raja was ashamed of himself so much that he silently vowed to provide happiness to Laxmi by turning into a working man.

The process of reciprocation of feeling started. Raja and Laxmi became the darlings of Bastiwalas. They proposed them to get married—

And then came in Professor- for whom Laxmi was working as a maid servant once—with the proposal of marrying her.

What happened then?

Did Raja succeed in fulfilling his silent vow of making Laxmi happy?
