stri kahe,-jati laha', yadi prane na maribe
raja kahe,-jati nile inho nahi jibe
stri kahe—the wife replied; jati laha'-then take his caste; yadi—if; prane na maribe—you will not kill him; raja kahe—the King replied; jati nile—if I take his caste; inho nahi jibe—he will not live (he will commit suicide).
As a last alternative, the wife suggested that the Nawab take away Subuddhi Raya's caste and turn him into a Mohammedan, but Hussain Khan replied that if he did this, Subuddhi Raya would not live.
