Archana’s mother is one of the few people who appreciates the middle-class girl, and she is determined to help her daughter make a good match with a man who can support her comfortably. Because of this, mechanic Manav lies about his circumstances so he can marry the girl he loves, but when his lie is discovered shortly after their wedding, Archana’s mother tries to prevent their union. In this she happily fails. Archana and Manav faces many good and bad circumstances.
Four years later
Four years later, Manav is comfortably supporting his family, grown to six with the addition of four children. Soham and the twin girls Tejaswini and Ovi are Manav’s and Archana’s own, but they have also adopted Manav’s fatherless nephew, Sachin. Turmoil again enters their lives, and this time tragedy and misunderstandings tear them apart. After Soham is presumably killed during a kidnapping by Archana’s sister Varsha, the couple separate. Archana remains in India when Manav takes Sachin and the girls to Canada. She tries to build a new family, adopting as a daughter the orphaned Purvi.
Eighteen years later
Although separated, Archana and Manav remained married. Both must deal with the challenges and problems that face their adult children. Those children would like to see their parents reunite – except the lawyer Sachin, who asks Archana to agree to divorce Manav for the sake of his real mother, Shravani. While Manav’s mother Savita caused Sachin to be taken from his mother, she has allowed Sachin to believe that Archana was responsible. Archana goes along with this, but Purvi – who has discovered that Manav is her father – is able to at least delay the divorce by telling the court she will not take responsibility for her mother.
