Story Till Now

Archana's day starts before the sun rises. She completes all her chores before anyone form her family has woken up. She prepares their tiffin, makes tea/coffee for them. Sulochana, Archana's mother gets worried looking at Archana working like that. But for Arch, its her way of life. Varsha and Vaishali are Archana's younger sisters. They like to wake up late but Archana wakes them early so that they don't get late. Varsha goes to work while Vaishali goes to college. Manjusha is Vaishali's sister-in-law. She always wakes up late and doesn't bother about getting her daughter Punni ready for school. It's always Archana who gets Punni ready for school. When everyone goes to their respective destinations in the morning, its Archana who is left home with her retired father and mother.


Sulochana's only dream is getting Archana married to a well-educated, well-settled guy. A family is going to come home for Archana's rishta. Sulochana has advised everyone to come home early. Manjusha reaches her office and tells her friend that she wont take yet another half-day because she has planned to go to Jaipur with Vinod and Punni. And she needs leaves for this vacation.  


Archana has gone out and she meets her friends in train. One of her firend informs her that she is getting married. Other friend asks Archana when she is getting married? Archana informs her that a 'roshta' has come for her and the family is coming to their house to see her.


Archana comes home and Vinid asks her if she wants tea which he has made. Archana says she will drink later. Sulochana asks Archana to get ready soon since those people might come anytime. She is worried that Varsha, Vaishali, Manjusha have come. Archana is getting ready and the family of the boy comes home. Vinod,Manohar and Sulochana exchange pleasantries with the guests. Sulochana tells them about their family. Just then Varsha and Vaishali come home. Sulochana is embarrassed with their late coming. She tells them to get ready. Punni asks them to feeed her but they are busy. Archu takes Punni with her to feed her but some of the food drops on Archu's sari. Sulochana comes and wipes and takes Archu out to meet the guests. The boy's mother says that Karanjkar's is a good family and they will be happy to have relations with such a family. They ask if Archana is working but Sulochana says Archana doesn't work but she is very good at house-work. They ask how much Archana has studied. Then Sulochana says that due to some problem, Archana couldn't study much. She has studied only till 8th. The guests are shocked. They boy's mother says that their son has studied till M.Com. How can he get married to a girl who has studied so less? Nowadays a house doesn't work on only one member's income. IF they want, they can consider Varsha's rishta for their boy. Sulochana gets angry and says that a girl is not a money earning machine. She is not against a girl studying or working. But its ok if the girl hasn't study much because she can always make a house. Archana is very good at house-work and she takes care of everyone very well. To this the boy says that whatever she has said about Archana can be done by any maid. Sulochana gets angry hearing this and tells them go since, she is not interested in any kind of relations with such people.


After they are gone, Sulochana breaks down and says they will never know the true value of Archu and to top it they asked for Varsha's hand. Varsha says what if they asked for her hand, she would have never said yes. It was fine for Arch, but the boy will someday earn very less than her. Sulochana tells her she is thinking about how much she is earning without giving a thought to what sacrifices Arch has made for them. She left her studies when Sulchana became ill. She took care of everyone in her family. IF it wasn't for her, none of them would be standing where they are now. Manjusha come home from office and Vinod angrily asks her why she did not come home early. She lies that she could not get a holiday.


Like normal, Archana gets herself busy doing work. Sulochana comes and tells her that this Tuesday even she will go with Arch to Ashta-Vinayak mandir. Arch tells her she cant go walking like her since she is not well. Sulochana tells her she will come by train. Archana goes walking and Sulochana goes by train and waits for Arch at the temple. There is rush at the temple and they both go in. Sulochana prays that Arch should get her match. Somebody who will take very good care of her. Just then the flowers in Arch's hand fall and are caught by someone. He gives the flowers back to Arch but both did not see each other's face. Sulochana prays that Arch should get a well-educated guy who should also be rich. If not his own, then he should atleast have company given car and house. Arch is praying and right next to her, Manav is standing. Both of them shower flowers on Lord Ganesha. The flowers fall right on Lord's idol. Sulochana says that Arch flowers fell on God; it means that her wish will be full-filled.


Sulochana is standing out and waiting for Archana when her friends meet there. Sulochana sees a guy whose car has broken down. One of her frends goes to meet that guy and talks to him. When she comes back, Sulochana asks her who that guy was. That woman tells Sulochana that he is her sister-in-law's daughter. Sulochana asks her what he does and she says that this guy is a manager in I.T. and has company given car and house and also earns well. The guy is getting his car fixed by a mechanic and we get to know that the mechanic is Manav. Archana is coming and Sulochana can see that gyu and Archana and is very happy. She tells her friend to talk to her sister-in-law for Arch's rishta with that guy. See again sees that guy and Archana but we see Archana and Manav. So who is in Archu's destiny?
