She has a very beautiful, intelligent, and a perfect Cinderella-like daughter Piya for whom she works very hard so that she can go to college. Geeta's husband and Piya’s father died while fighting for the army, and thus left both of them impoverished.
In spite of all this, Piya keeps her head up and is very proud of her mother’s work. She excels at college and is a brilliant student. She attends the College with Kabir, Aditi, Akshay, and Ayesha. Kabir is the son of Mahesh Shah and Niti Shah. Mahesh Shah is the eldest son of Baa who is the head of Shah Family. Aditi and Akshay are children of Jatin and Savita who is Mahesh’s sister. Ayesha’s mother is Ganga who hired Geeta for work in Shah Family. Ganga is not rich, but as Ayesha enjoys pretending to be rich and living large, she never tells anyone about the relationship between her and Ayesha.
The twist comes when Piya’s mother meets an injury and is not able to work, which leads to the shortage of money. In this situation, Piya decides that she would work for Shah family as a maid, and also attend her college simultaneously. In college and at home, Kabir’s interactions with Piya increases, and he starts to fall for her. Meanwhile, Akshay starts to fall for Ayesha who is also Aditi’s best friend. Many a time, he comes very close to find the real truth about Ayesha’s life. Eventually, Kabir and Piya marry which makes the members of Shah Family very disappointed. But Baa supports them and assures Piya that now she is welcome in the family as more than just a maid.
