Her journey across the Himalaya is coming to an end, but her thirst to find the soulmate is still on. Now she has already visited Pakistan, Nepal and most of India and she is at her last destination before leaving India.  Just when she was losing the hope of finding her man, she comes across Rudra, an Indian monk. She practiced Yoga with him and witnessed the aarti performed every morning and evening. She is immensely attracted towards Rudra but knowing the fact that he is a monk and cannot live the luxury of normal life, ignites a conflict in her mind.
