The Dean says to her that she could have come earlier, but also take his own responsibility. The dean gives her another opportunity to write exams again so she can try for US scholarship and also says that he is very proud of her.
Karan Tacker(the host): speaks to all girls that if God forbid this happens to you, always speak and stand up about the crime. He says that the girls don’t speak against the crime perpetrator taking into account – dangers, society, insecurities. Please don’t be silent since if girls don’t report then the crime perpetrator will get more encouragement thinking nobody will book them for their crime. Swati’s realization happened and that only helped her to fight, take revenge and stand up against the crime.
An AV is shown about Shruti Pathak (singer) – She tells her about an experience during a train travel from Delhi to Bangalore when her friend has accepted a drink from some strangers on the train, and got somewhat lost and intoxicated. She recommends to girls that travel often to think wisely and look carefully before accepting drinks.
Karan signs off by saying that nobody can stand up to girl’s determination and strength.. And boys- do not think that by physically dominating and sexually abusing them, it is a sign of your male chauvinism, and proof of strength and on the contrary that idea is of a looser. Don’t be silent, stand up, raise your voice and say – Halla Bol, Change Aayega Hum Laayenge..
