The times were orthodox and did not allow a one to one interaction between Individuals of the opposite gender. 

Atalji somehow wrote a letter to Mrs. Kaul and kept it inside a library book. Mrs. Kaul also had a soft corner for Atalji in her heart but due to caste differences, her parents got her married and sent her to Delhi. Rajkumari was married to Professor BN Kaul. 

Years later, when Atalji met Rajkumari again in Delhi, he became great friends with her husband and started living with their family. Atalji later adopted her daughter Namita Bhattacharya and the Kaul family was his family. Mrs. Rajkumari Kaul died in 2014.
