Tiru is a reflection as well as a representation of the ideal Maithili women,an epitome of sacrifice.She is well-aware of all the rituals & societal prescribed duties of her life. Tiruwas aware that Radha would never full-heartedly accept her as his wife. The suppressing silence of Tiru soon became her enemy, this perennial silence made her spouse & in-laws even stronger & neglecting towards her emotions. So much that Radhakant started contemplating on getting married with Kamakhya. Radhakant confesses his intention to marry Kamakhya in front of Tiru. She declares she has no objection. Now, Tiru becomes like a puzzle to Radhakant, an unsolved & inviting puzzle.
