It is a Saturday morning. Meera is getting ready to go to Bharath's house as his mom invited her over phone for lunch. Veena comes to know about this and is requesting Meera to take her along with her. Meera is refusing saying that they have invited only her. Veena calls Bharath and asks him directly whether it is ok if she accompanies Meera for lunch. Of course, he says yes.
They take an auto to Bharath's place. Bharath's mom is very happy to see them. She has prepared a sumptuous meal and they are having a very good time. She gives Meera a saree and flowers when they were about to leave. Meera touches her foot and accepts the gift. Bharath's mom is so taken away now and she hugs Meera tightly. Only the three can understand the unfulfilled wishes. Veena is just passing time by going around the house and trying to get the attention of Bharath.
They come back home in the evening and Amma shows a photo to Meera. She starts explaining about the proposal saying that the family is settled in Delhi and they are very rich. The groom is well-educated and he is doing his own business and ......
Meera did not even see the picture once. She has decided this already and there is nothing to think about based on who the groom is. She says, "Amma, if you all like the family, then we can proceed".
She is not able to control herself, so she goes upstairs. She cries and then consoles that she is doing this only for the well-being of her family. There is no way that she can do something that harms them. She is clear now and thinks that every action has a meaning to it and she is destined to take this decision.
Next week, the groom's family comes over for 'Maapillai paakum padalam'. Meera is looking so beautiful that day in a simple green silk saree and jasmine flowers. They like her very much and convey their interests to proceed for marriage.
That night, Meera's family is all excited and they are discussing the wedding preparations. Meera is also feeling much better by now and she tries to recollect the groom's face and all that is coming to her mind is the one of Bharath's.
