Vijay was wandering killing his time and suddenly heard a sweet voice singing. He proceeded in the direction of the sound and came to a temple. He saw a Jogan singing. He was drawn towards her and was spellbound. Next day he again went to the temple to hear her heavenly voice. Though males were forbidden to be nearby, he managed to stand by the pillar to satisfy his ardent desire. After the song was over, the Jogan proceeded to her place. But this time Vijay followed her. She scolded him as it was forbidden for man to enter and shut the door of her hut. But Vijay was feeling restless all the while. He felt himself drawn towards the temple. The Jogan saw him and took the promise not to visit her again as it was disturbing her mentle peace. He kept his promise. He had faint hope of catching some strains of that celestial music from the hut. But the Jogan had ceased singing her songs. The only word that was heard was Shanti" - "Shanti" "Shanti". . Nobody knew why this change had come over the Jogan. Vijay found some comfort in placing flowers at the feet of the idol. One night Vijay saw her near river and asked her about her life. After much persisting she told her life story. She was Surabhi, a Jagirdar's daughter. Her father was in deep debts and brother was addicted to drinks. Her brother took into his head to marry her to an old man. So she left home and people. In the jungle she met an elderly Jogan. She advised her to devote herself to the service of God. But now that voice is silenced. She who had succeeded in renouncing everything now felt perturbed. Now only one way was open to her. She decided to leave the village without telling anybody. When Vijay learnt about it he came to her. She requested him not to proceed further from that tree. Vijay stopped there. She vanished a minute. Vijay kept his word. He paid visits to the temple, to the tree,to the jungle. One day a young Jogan came there. She gave a book to Vijay saying " An elderly Jogan gave this to me to hand over the man who sits below the tree on the border of the village, after her death".
