Plot of Gaanga (season One)
The show like we earlier noted has three seasons. The first season follows Gangaa as a child who is treated as a widow because she lost her husband.
Married off at a tender age, she loses her father and husband to a riot along the river Ganges and before she can fully understand what marriage is all about, she is accused of killing her husband and forced to endure the rituals and superstitions associated with widowhood.

Niranjan’s mother, Ammaji doesn’t however see Gangaa as a daughter of the house, she treats her like a widowed servant even though she is not just a widow but also a child. Gangaa learns all the rules and ways that a widow should live much to her dislike but still obeys Ammaji and never scorns her.
The story further develops with Ganga and Sagar’s childhood friendship. As a child, the youngest son of Chaturvedi, Sagar always protects and stand by Gangaa.
However Sagar and Ganga are soon separated when Sagar moves to London to study in a boarding school. This was planned by his mother Madhvi and grand mother Ammaji as they thought that Sagar would soon drift away from them if he continues his friendship with Gangaa.
But even at that, the young child Gangaa who has developed a strong feeling for Sagar always believed that she is the only one in his life. Hence the name Sagar ki Gangaa.

But before their marriage, prabha Mami mixes something in Sagar’s drink and Sagar in that drunken state comes very close to gangaa and they have a romantic moment.
But the next morning Sagar doesn’t remember anything that happened between him and gangaa. And when the day of their wedding came and while taking the Pheras, gangaa collapses and it is later revealed that Gangaa is pregnant.
Sagar refuses to believe her that the child is his as he doesn’t remember any affair between them. He questions gangaa’s character and thinks that she had been with another man.
Disheartened gangaa leaves the house and meets Rahat, a woman who takes care of poor homeless girls. She lives with her and integrates with her family amidst problems between Zoya and Rudra….
The problem involves:
Rahat’s daughter Zoya is raped and her husband is murdered by Rudra, a friend of Sagar. Sagar refuses to believe Rudra could do this. Later, it is believed Rahat and Niranjan were lovers in college and that Zoya was Niranjan’s daughter. Ammaji hid this secret from Niranjan because Rahat was from a different religion and she sent Niranjan to London for studies.
After a long court-case drama, Zoya reveals to Rudra that she loves him, the rape charges are fake and that she is the one that murdered her husband; Rudra records everything but it is deleted by Zoya. He somehow records the confession.
Rahat sees the confession and slaps her daughter, but Zoya tries to snatch the camera. In the resulting fight, Rahat slips and falls to her death from the terrace. Niranjan then takes Zoya to his house, to which his wife does not agree.
Sagar decides to leave the house with his mother and goes to London. Some months later, Gangaa gives birth to a baby girl on the day of Krishna Janmanashtri and she names her Krishna. Since Sagar refuses to accept her as his daughter, she decides to raise her alone.
A 7 years leap occurs.
Gangaa and her daughter Krishna (also played by Ruhana Khanna ) now lives alone somewhere around a jungle.
Sagar, who is unaware Krishna is his daughter, goes to Banaras on his dadi’s insistence. In a jungle he comes across Krishna, who is lost, and takes care of her. Krishna is instantly attached to him. He knows she is Gangaa’s daughter because she looks exactly like Gangaa. He takes her home without meeting Gangaa.
One day, Sagar and Gangaa come across each other; Krishna recognises Sagar as the man who helped her in the jungle. She is pleased to see him but Gangaa takes her away.
Sagar still plans to leave Banaras whereas Gangaa cannot answer Krishna’s question about her father. And so she herself sets out to find her father.
She again comes across Sagar but collapses in his arms. She is rushed to hospital where Gangaa reveals that Krishna has a hole in her heart which is genetic; and that Krishna’s father had the same problem in his childhood.
Sagar is shocked and he asks Gangaa who is Krishna’s father but she does not reply. Sagar refuses to go to London without finding answers.
One day, in a temple, Yash abducts Krishna to blackmail Gangaa. He reveals that his mother mixed something in Sagar’s drink, which is why he does not remember having sex with Gangaa. Sagar and his family are shocked.
Sagar apologizes to Gangaa and asks for her forgiveness but Gangaa does not budge and is not ready to listen as Sagar had had no trust in her. Sagar then tells her he came for Krishna and asks Krishna to come with him but Gangaa stops him.
With no other option, he sues for custody of Krishna, which is followed by a long court case. Sagar wins the case as Krishna chooses Sagar as instructed by him.
