The wise old bird said that Chandni is the winner because even being weak and small in front of the wolf, she didn't give up. She gathered all her courage and done a brave fight.

She looked like a brave soldier ready to fight a treacherous enemy. She died brave in the morning completely soaked in blood.

I think it was the right decision because no one can imagine life in someone's captivity. Freedom is more valuable thing than life. Chandni could have gone back to her small hut of Abbu and saved her life but she chooses to fight with the wolf instead to gain her freedom. She didn't died coward. She fought with courage show the picture of bravery to attain freedom of her life. She might have lived longer in the captivity but she died everyday in the imprisonment. She fought with the wolf and told herself that success or failure is a matter of luck or chance. So, she took the right decision afterall.
