strī kahe,-jāti laha', yadi prāṇe nā māribe
rājā kahe,-jāti nile iṅho nāhi jībe
strī kahe—the wife replied; jāti laha'-then take his caste; yadi—if; prāṇe nā māribe—you will not kill him; rājā kahe—the King replied; jāti nile—if I take his caste; iṅho nāhi jībe—he will not live (he will commit suicide).
As a last alternative, the wife suggested that the Nawab take away Subuddhi Rāya's caste and turn him into a Mohammedan, but Hussain Khān replied that if he did this, Subuddhi Rāya would not live.
