Dashrath goes to his parents give the bad news. They curse him to face a death grieving for his son as they grieve for Shravan and die.
King Dashrath performs the last rites of Shravan Kumar and his parents. He is sad and feels guilty. He goes to religious court, the sages absolve him of guilt but ask him to never shoot an arrow on merely hearing a sound. Dashrath learns that Ravan has invaded the neighbouring state Kaipaya, so he goes to help him. During the batter, his sarathi is killed but a young man takes the sarathi?s place. Dashrath discovers that the young man is king Kaikaya?s daughter in disguise.

Kaikayee expresses a desire to marry him but Dashrath politely tells her he has to get permission from his two queens. At the same time, Dashrath promises to fulfill Kakayee two wishes at anytime during his lifetime. Upon return Dashrath tells the queens who agree and ask sage Vashisht to take the proposal to King Kaikaya.
Sage Vashisht is about to send a priest when a purohit arrives from King Kaikaya with the marriage proposal. They happily agree and Dsahrath marries Kaikayee.
