About Story
The story revolves around a rich, feudalistic household in Rajasthan. It consists of a domineering matriarch Kalyani, her two sons Basant (Satyajit Sharma) and Bhairav (Anup Soni), Bhairav's wife Sumitra (Smita Bansal), and his children Sughna (Vibha Anand) and Jagdish (Avinash Mukharjee). The story begins with the marriage of the young boy Jagdish with Anandi (Avika Gor), a girl of his age.

The matriarch, Kalyani Devi and her family are highly respected around her village and the other villages around it. Thus, when a supposedly poor family get their daughter, Anandi, married to Kalyani's grandson, Jagdish, they feel that they have fixed their daughter's life.

But when Anandi reaches her sasuraal (in-laws' home), she finds herself listening to her dadi-sa, Kalyani Devi. Little by little, Anandi's childish mistakes get her into trouble in the hands of Kalyani and one day Kalyani locks her in a dark room. This scares Anandi, and when she is freed she runs away to her parents, Bhagwati (Bhairavi Raichura) and Khajaan Singh (Chetanya Adib). This breaks the heart of Sumitra, Anandi's mother-in-law who gave her a lot of love. When Anandi is brought back to her in laws, Bhairav Kalyani's younger son, convinces Kalyani to be nice to Anandi.

Subsequent subplot includes the marriage of Basant to a girl much younger than he is, because of the Kalyani's greed for an heir. His first wife Jamna died when she was pregnant because of this reason. A few months after Jamna's death Kalyani got Basant married to a poor, young girl named Gehna (Neha Marda) who was young enough to be Basant's daughter. After marriage it was shown that Gehna was abused by Basant and Kalyani. When she faced enough abuse she rebelled against both of them.

It is also shown that Anandi's teenage sister-in-law Sughna is married to a boy named Pratap, who also belongs to a very rich family. In the beginning Sughna and Pratap meet secretly because Sugna's parents don't want her to become a mother at such a young age and face the same fate as Jamna. Soon it comes time for Sughna to go to her in-laws, and a celebration is held. On the way to the ceremony Pratap's family is robbed and he is killed in the process of rescuing them from some goons. Pratap's body is brought to Sughna's house and Sughna's grief is unbearable when she sees him dead. Afterwards it is shown that Sugna is in her room and still can't believe that Pratap is dead. It is shown that the family is taking Pratap's body to the graveyard and in Sugna's house all the ladies are taking Sugna's make-up, colourful dress and giving her a dull dress and after looking at herself in a widow's dress she is crying a lot and remembering the happier days with Pratap. It is also shown that Kalyani is telling Anadi's mother to take Sugna to the room behind their haveli and also tells her to tell Sugna that from now she has to make her own food without adding any spices or not to touch the sweet things too.

Show Synopsis
