Manto stays with the theme of the good-hearted prostitute who is exploited both materially and emotionally by the men in her life. Sugandhi is a prostitute who craves love and approbation from men for being a good person.

Consequently, she too spends her earning on her lover, Madho, who, while benefiting fully from it, is given to sanctimonious and husbandly speeches on how she needs to give up trade. The narrative unfolds around a single incident that takes place when Sugandhi's pimp, Ramlal, wakes her up in the middle of the night to take her to a customer waiting in a motor car. When she reaches the car, the customer shines a flashlight in her face, makes a dissatisfied grunt and drives off. The pimp tells her that she has failed to make the grade with this gentleman.

The insult which Sugandhi experiences from this rejection precipitates a crisis that has been simmering inside her for a while Sugandhi feels a growing void within and without - 'and all around her there was a frightening silence- a silence that she had never felt experienced before'. It is with this void that the story leaves her,; a zero that she tried to fill, but in vain, and her brain a sieve through which thoughts enter and leave. In the closing simile, Sugandhi likens herself to a 'train filled with passengers that, after off-loading now stands alone in an iron shed.
