His father, Laxminandan Vyas, remarries Gumaan, an evil and selfish woman who bore him a son. But unlike his mother, Danny is a kind and selfless boy.
Laxminandan (Sara’s father) arranges Saras’ wedding with Kumud Desai, the well-educated daughter of his best friend, Vidyachatur Desai. However, Saras, withdrawn since the death of his mother, refuses to marry and writes to Kumud to inform her.
But Kumud who has wholeheartedly accepted the marriage proposal challenges Saras to personally tell her father about his rejection. Saras leaves Dubai, the place where he had grown up, and comes to Ratnanagri, Kumud’s village.
But as time goes on, Saras begins getting along with Kumud’s family and starts adjusting to their ways. He eventually falls in love with Kumud and a short-lived romance follows.
However, on his return to Dubai, Saras finds a letter written by his mother, which a jealous Gumaan had secretly slipped into his things, revealing to Saras that the reason his mother committed suicide was that she found out that Laxminandan and Gumaan were having an affair.
A shattered and heartbroken Saras disowns his father and leaves thr house. He also decides not to marry Kumud because he believes that, since he is no longer the son of a rich man, he will not be able to support her and is therefore unworthy to be her husband.
To save her family’s reputation, a heartbroken Kumud agrees to marry another man Pramadan Dharmadhikari – the son of a political family. However, after the wedding, Kumud finds out that Pramad is an alcoholic who had been forced to marry her. Given the deceit behind their marriage, he refuses to accept her as his wife.
Despite how Kumud is being mistreated by Pramad at his house, she decides to stay with him, believing she can change him into a better person.
What Kumud does not know is that Saras had realised his mistake and had wanted to stop her wedding with Pramad but before he could do so, he had been assaulted by thugs and left for dead.
Alak, Pramad’s sister finds Saras and brings him to her family mansion. He regains his health and on finding Kumud there and learning about the pain Pramad has been inflicting on her, he makes a promise to himself that he will change Pramad’s ways and unite him with Kumud.
Buddhidhan Dharmadhikari, who despises the deplorable lifestyle of his son, Pramad, appoints Saras as his secretary. This causes Pramad to be jealous of Saras because he thinks his father loves Saras more than him.
Upon learning why Saras refused to marry her, Kumud forgives him and asks him to leave her house as she cannot see his constant humiliations from Pramad. Saras tells Kumud he won’t go out of her life until he unites her with Pramad.
Pramad still hates Kumud though he acts like a changed man and promises Kumud that they would soon start a new life. He however attempts to kill her but she is rescued by Saras. This is the final blow that causes Kumud to separate from Pramad and return to her home.
Yet despite all these, Saras and Kumud still love each other very much and Saras still nurses the intention of marrying Kumud.

Even though Kumud’s family is not happy with Kusum’s decision, Kumud convinces them to agree with it. When Saras come to know about this, he makes it clear that he is not ready to marry Kusum as he has always considered Kusum as his own sister.
But Kumud stays firm in her decision to get Saras married to Kusum to which an angered Saras agrees to and the marriage takes place.
