Her friend said that The house wife was Sarada, she came first in their school in tenth class, she got first prize in singing competition, she used to paint good pictures too and they were all tenth friends, she was the only person living incognito. Sarada thanked her friend Pramila by saying that she would have gone mad if she had not met her.

Sarada returned home and saw her achievements in the attic. Her paintings, prizes etc., were seen by her and she went to childhood memories.

Overjoyed, she returned home. Her husband claimed that the whole house was so dusty as it was not dusted for two days and he felt like a festival by her presence.

Sarada said that just scrubbing the floor would not make festival. And she told him to call her as Sarada instead of yemoi and geemoi.

Sarada always used to care about scrubbing, cleaning, muggulu designs etc for the first time sat on the sofa which contained so much dust. With enthusiasm, she showed her children an album her paintings that she brought for them.

Sarada recognized that more than scrubbing and cleaning her identity was more important i.e., her name. A woman without identity does not make sense to her living.
