A crowd chases her shouting "thief-theif". . The noise attracts the attention of an aristocratic gathering at Meena Devis residence - a lady patronising fine arts and literature. All condemn and criticise the beggar girl, except Kumar, a sculptor and his friend Kant. Kumar disagree with the rest, that nobility and excellence of character were the birth rights of only the blue-blooded people. They laugh and mock at Kumar, who leaves the place with Kant in disgust and in a revengeful mood. . As luck would have it, Nili finds shelter from the chasing crowd in a car which belongs to Kumar.

Under the bengin sway of the best education, training and refinments, Nili, the beggar girl, rises to the high pedestal of cultured princess Endowed with all the feminine charms, Kumar makes a statue of her.

The idea never strikes him that she a human being, made of bone and flesh possesses a heart and feeling too.
