The story is about a simple naive village girl name Vidya from Banaras. The twist in her life takes place when she gets married to a mentally challenged man named Sagar Pratap Singh who refuses to take her side. Sindoora (Sagar's stepsister), gets jealous of Vidya because all her dad's property is in Vidya's name, and so she tries to kick her out. However, Sindoora's husband comes back from a business trip and with sindoora and Aniket's 10 year son Bharat. He makes Vidya stay in Sagar's room and so Bharat and Sagar try to pull pranks on Vidya to get her to leave. Sagar gets sick and Sindoora tells Vidya to get Sagar medicine and because Vidya is an illiterate, meaning she can't read or write, she by mistake grabs poison. however before she gave it to Sagar, sindoora throws it out of her hand. Sagar gets mad and the next day he was about to hit Vidya in the hand with a ruler however he sees that her hand is covered with blood and i think that it was the first time Sagar found out Vidya isn't bad she does thinks by mistake. slowly Sagar accepts Vidya and calls her his best friend. (He than falls so in love with her that he can't live without her)
Vidya's Mom shows up with Hema (her mom's sister) and Shalu (Hema's daughter) Another twist was when Harsh shows up and says he is Vidya's far away cousin and so he wants to stay with her for a bit, (Harsh isn't her brother but a goon that has been trying to get married to Vidya for years). During the stay Harsh takes Sagar for a ride and the next day Sagar tries to drive on his own he almost falls of a cliff however Vidya goes in front of him and so thinking fast Sagar makes a turn and hits a tree. Harsh had been planning this and so he tells everyone that he and Vidya had made a plan to kill Sagar so that his property and money can be their own.
Everyone thinks that Vidya was trying to kill Sagar and so they kick her out however Vidya says that she wants to know if Sagar is okay before she leaves and so Sindoora lets her stay. During the whole day Vidya never ate or drank anything and she went to the temple to do a prayer for Sagar. She circles the temple 1,008 times and when she finishes she faints. however Chinu (Sagar cousin), and Bharat see and they believe that Vidya never tried to hurt him. they take her home and Sagar gets better, Vidya was just about to leave (as she had promised) when Sagar comes out and tells everyone that Vidya saved his life than everyone, but Sindoora and her two younger (chandra and Mauha) sister tell Vidya to stay. Harsh is now out of the house, however Chandra falls in love with Harsh and they get married.
Bharat is going on a camping trip with his school and Sagar decided to go with him. There Sindoora pays a goon to make Sagar go more mental. However, before he could Vidya gets worried about Sagar so she goes to visit him. Sagar is so glad to see Vidya because he hasn't been feeling good and when Vidya came she and Sagar had a lot of fun and they were about to go home the next day however the goon hired by Sindoora takes Sagar to the back gate and places a bag over his head. Sagar tries to get away however the goon is not giving up. Sagar manages to get the bag over his head off and Vidya came, Vidya tries to help Sagar but the goon pushes her down and grabs a stick to kill Vidya Sagar stops him from hitting her and pushes the goon down and he falls on a rock and dies. Someone sees the dead man and calls the police and Vidya tells the police the she pushed him down. Sagar does not say any thing cause Vidya made him swear on her life and if he breaks it she will die.
Vidya is taken to jail, while Sindoora takes Sagar home. Aniket hires a lawer for Vidya. No proof yet that she did not commit the crime she may be sent to 14 years in prison. Sagar at home is sleeping and by mistake in his sleep he says Vidya never killed that guy, he did. Aniket asked Vidya and she says it true. Aniket tells Vidya that the police would have let him go after seeing his mental health. however Vidya can not change her statement about her pushing the guy because the police will suspect something. Somehow something they did not now is that a little kid had followed Vidya and recorded the whole fight and that kid had put the video tape in Bharat's bag and with that, Shalu saw the video and they were able to free Vidya.
Later Sagar's ex-girlfriend who had abandoned Sagar when he became mentally ill came back with a kid saying it was hers and Sagar she even had fake DNA report but Aniket gets another one done and asked Sindoora what it says, it said that kid is not Sagars or his ex-girlfriend "Suril" but sindoora lies and said it was. Everyone decided to take the kid in but Sagar refused, Vidya then made Sagar accept, Suril put's on the same Sari as Vidya and put Sameer (the kid) on a boat and cut's the rope. Sagar from behind thought it was vidya seeing the same clothes. Sagar attempts to save Sameer, hand gets rescued by an old friend Tushar. he takes Vidya's side and says that Vidya wasn't the one who put sameer on the boat. He stays with Sagar and his family for a few days. during that time Sagar has been acting really mean to Vidya. soon enough Vidya, Tushar, Bharat, Chinu and Sameer find out that it was Suril that put sameer on that boat and they find out that Sameer is not Suril's or Sagar's son.
Sagar's mum is giving all her property to Suril, Vidya refuses and she is then kicked out of the house. Tushar, who had left to get the real DNA reports saying sameer is not suril or sagars kid, return's to the house and reveals the truth. Suril is kicked out and Sagar brings Vidya back. Ahiket founds out that who made suril do all that stuff was really Sindura, he tries to make her say the true. She tried to kill Sagar. Vidya and Tushar succeed to make sameer talk, everyone is happy. Aniket leaves Sindura, but vidya realized that they were breaking up, everyone in the house try to reconcilie them and finally made it. Sindura apologize to aniket for what she done to sagar, he feels sorry to her and he forgives her. Later on in the story Sagar finds out that he is not an 9 yr old kid. On Sagar's birthday Sindoora tells Sagar that Vidya has been cheating on him and that Vidya has been going to some guys house every day at 5:00. Sagar was about to ask Vidya but vidya tells him that she learned English for him and that guy she went visit was her teacher. Sagar is disappointed in himself for thinking that Vidya would cheat on him so he sings her a song at his party. he has also accepted her back in his room and he says that he does love her a lot, their aunty then decides to make Sagar and Vidya closer that Vidya should say she is pregnant and vidya does so. Sindoora finds out that their aunty is helping Vidya so she pays a guy to crash into her and kill her, she doesn't die she goes into a coma. Aniket gets out of the coma but Sindoora blames the crash that happened at the temple was a part of Anikets plan to kill Sagar. Aniket is sent to jail and Vidya is left alone to fight Sindoora. Sindoora later finds out that vidya isn't pregnant and she exposes it in front of everyone. Vidya is kicked out of the house but Sagar can't live without her so he give all his property to Sindoora and goes to find Vidya.
Sindoora sends goons after Sagar to kill him, they beat him up and throw him into the water (where vidya and sagar had first meet). Vidya sees and tries to help him but some villiger hold her back and get sagar out and take him to the hospital. In the hospital he remembers everything, but him being mental and that Sindoora is trying to kill him. he says sorry to Vidya. The two of them make a plan to get a proof against Sindoora. Sagar pretends that after getting beat up he is mentally ill again and the two of them go home. Sagar annoys Sindoora so much that she confirms everything and says that she had tried to kill Sagar. Vidya, Sagar and Chinu ( he finds out sgaar isn't mental and so he helps him with their plan) get everything on tape. Sindoora finds out that Sagar is not mentally ill, and pays goons to kill the two of them but Sagar and Vidya ran away from the house. They have been running for days before Sindoora sees them and chases them with a car. Sagar and vidya ran but eventually stop cause in front of them was a cliff and Sindoor grabs a gun and shoots them. They die and Chinu finds their bodies and take them home on their death bed. After the death caremony, Chinu and his wife Shalu, z9they two of them get marrided somewhere in the storyz) and her parents leave the house. Bharat (Sindoora's son), knows that his mom was the cause of their death and so he runs away. 8 years later, Shalu's parents return and bring Kamna (Chinu and Shalu's 8 year old daughter chinu and shalu had died in a car crash). Also every year on Sagar and Vidya's death, Sindoora holds a pray for them...
 Reincarnation of Sagar and Vidya as Amar and Divya
Sagar and Vidya return 21 years later as Amar and Divya. Divya and Amar meet in Banares and they fall in love. They don't get married right away, but eventually they do. The two end up in Sindoora's house again because Amar is the real son of Mahua and Rajeev (Rajeev had switched the babies in the hospital). When Divya gets shot by Samrat (really Sindoora did it but blamed Samrat) she remembers everything from her previous birth. She remembers that Sindoora is the one that killed them. The bullet was removed and she managed to survive. Divya tries to prove to Amar that his 'Badi Maa' is the cause of their previous death and she is his real enemy. He didn't believe it because Sindoora was trying to get everyone to think that the bullet made Divya kind of crazy. Amar eventually finds out the truth, himself and Bharat (Sindoora's son who returns after 22 years to help amar) helped them get revenge. Bharat wanted to get revenge because he hated his mom because he knew the truth about her. He knew since he was little that she had killed sagar and Vidya and that she had put his dad in jail. He wanted to get revenge from her. Finally, Sindoora got arrested with the help of Amar, Divya, and Bharat. She managed to escape and the police were trying to find her. She called Bharat, thinking he is on her side, and Bharat came along with Divya and Amar. She tried to kill Divya and Amar again, but Bharat came from behind and shot her. It was shown that she fell into the pond, but they never found her body. It was presumed that she was eaten by the crocodiles.
Amar and Divya are having a nice life and Bharat and Aditi are trying to tell Divya the truth about them not being married. In the most recent episodes, Amar is currently in Banaras because on his way there, he accidentally drove into and killed Shivam who was on his way to get married. Amar is then forced to stay with the family because Shivam's soon-to-be-wife thinks that Amar is actually Shivam. He was asked to play as Shivam for a few days in front of Gauri. Recently, Amar was married to Gauri because she still thinks that Amar is Shivam. Because of her heart problem, the family is afraid to tell Gauri that Shivam is dead because they are afraid she might also die. so Amar stays as Shivam. After a night they spend together in a building due to their car breaking down. People think that she is a bad girl so Amar puts Sindoor on her and goes home. Amar finds out Divya is pregnant and Bharat's wedding is to come soon, Bharat brought the lady who took care of him when he was smaller. Gauri decided to go find her husband in Delhi. After Sagar's mom brought Gauri home to stay she found out that Amar/Shivam was living there when she went downstairs to look for him, she saw him dancing with Divya and hugging her. Next day, Guari tries to tell the family about Amar marrying her but Amar stops her. Amar told her that Shivam is dead and he is Amar not Shivam. Bharat's ma..lady who took care of him saw Amar and Guari together, alone in a room, she tells Divya, not wanting to hide this. Divya asks Amar where he was when she was sleeping that night but he says nothing, she then begins to suspect him and gauri, now she's saying that all these girls want is men and Divya begins to suspect something between her husband and Gauri soon enough she finds out and then she makes Gauri get it out in the open and even through that Gauri stays in their home.
Divya is in a very critical stage in her life it's kinda like it's her or the baby but she really wants the baby. Bharat and Aditi get married and after their wedding they had sex because it showed the candles burning. Amar tells Gauri to get out of his house but Gauri always tattle tails and tells Divya that she's leaving even though she knows Divya won't let that happen. Divya is dignosed with Kidney diease and Gauri has a heart diease. But Amar only cares about Divya. Karuna, Bharat's mom is a total snoop and never minds her own business and she obviously wants to know what happens and she does along with the rest of the family. But she truly has the family's best interests at heart. Bharat's mom just got kicked out of the house by Aniket because she does not like Aditi, since she was once married (a divocee). She leaves the house and Bharat's real mom enters. It turns out that Sindoora was never dead. She is apparently crazy. Though Divya does not think she is crazy, They are now testing her to see if she is really crazy, but somehow Sindoora always seems to know about their plans. Divya has now found out that Sindoora isn't really crazy she is just acting like it. Sindhoora tries to harm pregnant divya, in that attempt Divya goes into a coma after giving birth to a baby girl, Dia.
Amar at first refuses to love the baby, but later realised the baby had nothing to do with their relationship he now started caring for the baby. Aditi realized truth of Sindhoora and joins Aniket in his fight against Sindhoora. Sindhoora at first succeed in convincing Gauri that it's her duty to make Amar accept her as his second wife but Gauri later realized her mistake and prays to devima for speedy recovery of Divya. Her prayers are answered and Divya recover. Aditi and Aniket know about Sindoora's real character and they have a plan to send Sindoora to jail and the plan is unknown to everyone else. This time Sindoora's evil scheme is to break up Amar and Divya, that is As the drama progressed, we see that divya is finally out of coma but can't remember anything for more than 10 minutes. for example in one of the episode, she puts baby Dia in the bath tub and completely forgot about her, amar came and saved the baby and rushed her to the hospital.
Amar is really worried about Divya because she gets scared once he is not around. Amar and Divya head home because of Divya because is slowly losing her memory, and when they went to the doctor and he said that there are 80% chance of Divya losing her memory completely. The next day, Amar wakes up and cant find Divya, he's scared, searching for her in each and every corner of the house, until he sees Divya's feet behind the curtain, he opens it and Divya gets scared and tells Amar to go away, saying "i don't know you, who are you, what do you want?". and this is the part when she completely loose all her memory. Amar and Aditi has a plan that might bring Divya's memory back, they put baby Dia on the bed to let her cry. and Divya comes and plays with her, so Amar thought she got her memory, but no, she looks at them and says to baby Dia that look, your mummy and papa are here. Amar gets a bigger shock as she can't remember anything, because of this Divya is getting distracted and packs her stuff to leave, and badi maa comes and tells Divya where are you going, and she's looks at Amar and tells badi maa, can i stay in room? BIG SHOCK.
Amar decides that he can be a good friend to her. He goes to Sindora's room and puts flower saying to my friend, and both of them become good friends. Sindoora tries to make Divya think that before she lost her memory, Divya was Amar's enemy, and he is the reason she lost her memory! Divya falls for Sindoora's trick, and now hates Amar! Divya says if Amar is not hers then nobody will be his. So she invites him to the cliff and pushes him off. However she didn't not really push him off, she was thinking about it and we could see her thoughts instead she did not have the courage to push Amar off. That night she decides to leave the house and faints in the middle of the road and some guy takes her to his house. Amar finds out that Divya has left and so he looks for her all night. Divya gets up and see the guy in front of her and they have a chat. The guy then tells her that he will do a brain surgrey on her to help her regain her memory. However if the surgery goes wrong she might end up in a coma again but Divya still agrees. The police asks Amar to look for Divya at the hospital and so Amar goes there. The guy who rescued Divya meets Amar in the hospital and sees that he has a picture of Divya. Amar questions him if he has seen Divya and the guy takes Amar to Divya's room. In the room Amar sees Divya and is very happy. Soon, the operation on Divya works and she gets back her memories. She tells the family what Bharat's mom did to her but Bharat's mom leaves before any of that happens. Bharat doesn't believe it so he and Aditi leave the house and gets a new home of theirs. Divya pleads Amar to get back Bharat and Amar promises he will.
