Sharmaji, a village school teacher suffering from heart trouble had nobody to look after him except his dutiful, hard working motherless daughter Vidya who attended to household duties since her early childhood and learnt to read and write from her father in spare time. Her father gave her the news that her would-be mother-in-law was coming to see her. Thus Vidya appeared in the traditional presentable manner before her would-be mother-in-law, father-in-law and sister-in-law. Chachi and her daughter Champa subjected Vidya to close minute scrutiny, examining even her teeth and eyes.
And just at the moment when Chachi was about to declare her her approval, she was upset by the discovery that Vidya knew how to read and write. But Sharmaji's assurance, that Vidya would voluntarily relapse into illiteracy under Chachis able charge, however, satisfied the domineering Chachi who hated the very sight of a book. Thus after agreeing to make Vidya “Charno-ki-Dasi" of her son Murari,Chachi returned back to her own village to make further preparations. After sacrificing her basic dreams how she wins the hearts of her family members forms the rest of the story.
