Nur went on to the Middle East and came back a rich man. He has remarried. Nur and Meher are cousins and Nur tries to help Meher (and Sakhina) by giving him work and lending him money. But when he returns Sakhina's prized nose-ring, which he had given her secretly during their marriage and not taken back during the divorce, and which Meher later pawned for some money, Sakhina is insulted and hurt.
