Akshara

Akshara's world consists of her husband, Naitik, her in-laws and her determination to do everything possible to make her loved ones happy! She's just a simple, educated girl from a traditional family, but believes in turning every situation into a positive, fulfilling one! She is naïve yet adaptable to change and has adjusted well to her circumstances. Family values and tradition go hand in hand with being broad minded about new things such as helping her sister-in-law in realizing her love even though love marriage is a taboo in the family. She is a daughter who will always love her family but has learned to give priority to her in-laws out of duty and respect. She is the sweet, understanding but sometimes irritable wife who has matured enough now to know her role as the daughter-in-law of the house first before anything but keeping her other roles very much intact.



Naitik

He is pampered. And not ashamed of it! The Singhania family whose much loved son he is, are rooted to tradition. Naitik loves his family. And is discovering love after marriage! Though he is also a sensitive soul who cares for others and never hurts anyone, there is a certain pride in him for being born a boy! Male chauvinistic to a certain extent, he feels that men are privileged by birth and women are supposed to understand this. A journey where he learns to love and admire his young bride despite the fact that she does not fulfil his fancy of being the perfect women he dreamt of.

Mahendra Pratap



He is the eldest brother of the family. After the sudden demise of his parents, he took upon himself the onus of taking care of his brothers, educating them and settling them in life. As a result he could not study much and does not hold and degree or diploma! He took care of the family business of jewels/ diamonds and ran it through his traditional wisdom. However later when Raj Shekhar and Chiraag grew up holding degree he withdrew a little and let them handle the business. Though he sits at the honourable chairperson’s position in the company and no decision is ever taken without consulting him, he has given Raj Shekhar all the powers to run business the way he likes and make decisions.


Kaaveri

Fondly called Bhabhi maa by everyone in the house, Kaaveri is Maheshdra Pratap’s wife. There is a big age difference between them. Kaaveri came to this house at the tender age of 15 and had to immediately assume the responsibility of mothering Mahendra Pratap’s kid brothers. She brought them up with affection and selfless love and even searched and got the best wives for the two. She is the most self less woman who has always found happiness in tending to her family members and seeing a smile of satisfaction on their faces. The only times she gets into bouts of depression and mood swings is when it is concerned with her daughter Nandini who is afflicted by Polio and hence still unmarried at the age of thirty.
