The story is based in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, a place which is largely male dominated and women lead very sheltered and withdrawn lives. Pratigya-who lives here is a educated young girl who believes in standing up for what is right and is courageous enough to carry this through. A local goon( though from a well to do family), Krishna falls in love with her and is obsessive in his attempts to marry her. They do get married, but fall in love much later. This is the story of their family life thereafter.
