The story revolves around these three characters and their struggle to find a foothold after the death of Harsh Joshipura (Vinay Jain), Shruti’s husband, in an accident. After Harsh’s death, it was Sanjay Mehta’s (Manav Gohil) constant support that helped Shruti and the girls pull through the trauma, the girls finding a father figure in him.
Harsh Joshipura was a perfect family man, Shruti’s soulmate, a friend, philosopher and guide to Amy and a perfect son to Baa (Farida Dadi). His untimely death two years back created a vacuum in Joshipura family which is yet to be filled. Amy, a teenager is lost and confused and finds it hard to move on without her father, who she adored. For Amy her father was the best man on earth. She is unable to focus on studies and has fallen into bad company at school. Quite often her misgivings have proved challenging to her mother.
As a sole bread earner of the family, Shruti is trying her best to give her daughters good education and a secured life, despite struggling to strike a balance between home and work. The family is fighting for the insurance claim, which the Company has declined based on rumors that Harsh’s death was a suicide and not an accident. Sanjay comes to their rescue, he helps her get a lawyer to fight a case against the insurance company. Just when things seem settling Shruti loses her job due to Amy
Sanjay Mehta is a decent, caring,matured ‘n’a selfless man. Although he belongs to an eminent business family of Baroda, he has not joined their family business, instead runs a partnership company. When Shruti loses her job, Sanjay requests her to join him which she does hesitantly. He makes it a point that he does everything to keep Shruti and family happy. This said, his mother Prabha Devi (Soma Anand) dislikes their friendship and wants Sanjay to settle down with a girl of her choice. Sanjay rejects all the alliances his mother brings for him enraging his mother further. In the process he also realizes he loves Shruti and takes courage to propose to her. They say ”Pyar jab hona hota hai..toh baas ho jata hai.”. How true. Enraged at this sudden turn of events, Shruti decides to quit her job with Sanjay and break all ties with him.
