She realizes that after marriage she has become a mere puppet in Kishanlal`s hands. She is no more than a servant to finish the chores and then at night to satisfy his lust. She chokes with this realization. She is looking for change from this dull life of a prisoner. She meets Benoyar DuPont. A very handsome, fair, blue eyed French. Neela falls in love with him. He introduces her to the streets, cafes, art galleries of Paris. He opens a universe in front of Neela. She gets involved in him, they come together.
