Even being in different homes, they celebrate all the festivals and auspicious days together like a family.

But, Peddabbai feels jealous of Chantibabu's respectful image among the villagers. He is more envious because Chantibabu had taken Rs. 400 for his business from Peddabbai's father. But all the credit is given to Chantibabu only. Peddabbai always stays away from family gatherings. His wife, Rajyalakshmi, comes up with an idea to settle everything. He suggests to Peddabbai that they should get their daughter married to Babu. Peddabbai thinks about the suggestion and tries to propose the same to Chantibabu.
