Pandu of Mahabharat.Dharam had lived the first 21 years of his life in poverty with his mother in a remote village. He got married at a very early age of 20 years, very soon after his mother died, with Shakuntala. Shakuntala was about to commit suicide, since she was kidnapped and raped by Dinkar Rai, when young Dharam saved her and later on got married to her.

He is a great Vishnu Bhakta and used to sing bhajans at the village temple through out the day. He is very honest and firm and a strong believer of karmic theory. Even after marriage, he paid very little attention to bread winning and passed most of his time singing Bhajans at the village temple. It was because of this closeness with the Supreme that he and his family never went without their daily bread.

His wife Shakuntala was pregnant with their first child when an earthquake rocked their village and everything was destroyed. Sitting on the temple footsteps with his pregnant wife, the now homeless Dharam was still optimistic about life since he had two mega-supports - one his wife and the other - Lord Krishna, whom Dharam always believed to be with him.

He was soon called to Mumbai to sign the Power Of Attorney. The next thing he did, as he became Dharam Dayal from Dharam, was to adopt his whole village. Fifty years have passed since then. He has witnessed the changing world with his graying hair. Today his sons have expanded his empire to sky scraping heights. But two things remain unchanged: Dharam's love for Shri Krishna and Mansen family's bitterness towards Dharam's family.
