When Ghanshyam  left the house, his friends came to the house to call him. As they could not find Ghanshyam at the house they went at the riverbanks to search for him. They also searched the common places visited by Ghanshyam in Ayodhya. After searching hard everywhere they came back disappointed to Rampratapji and asked where Ghanshyam were. They also told him that they had looked for them all over Ayodhya but could not find them.

Hearing this Rampratapbhai was shocked and him and their relatives started searching the lord in Temples, forest and all other places in Ayodhya but could not find them.Unhappy, Rampratapbhai started crying and prayed for Ghanshyam to come home. Suvasinibhabhi also started crying and praying for Ghanshyam. When are we going to see the face of Ghanshyam now? Its time for him to eat, they said. Days started passing with tears in their eyes. Even the younger brother Iccharam was unhappy without the brother Ghanshyam. Everyday was a day full of grief and sorrow without Ghanshyam. Knowing the grief of their family, by the grace of God, Hanumanji solaced them all in their divine form.
