One day when writer-lyricist was on his usual walk, he noticed that the lady had died and her little daughter was crying badly. Salim Khan knew he couldn't leave the girl alone on the cruel streets of Bombay to fend for herself. So, he took her with him and brought her home.
When Salim Khan asked the little girl her name, she replied "Arpita" with tears still in her eyes. He introduced her to his family, who gladly welcomed her into their household. Soon, the process of adoption followed.
Salim educated her, made her self-dependent; and the entire Khan family got her married with much aplomb.
