She is the only person who understands that behind his stern façade is a vulnerable man who has to play many roles to protect his family.

He is very firm with his son Shaurya but is lenient with his daughter Akshara. Though he adores her and never talks to her in a raised voice, he has made it very clear that the girls/women of the household have to live within the strict rules laid down by society and no exceptions will be entertained. Behind his authoritative aura, he is also affectionate and emotional. He cloaks his vulnerability by being the responsible man who cannot afford to go wrong being the eldest son of the family.

Vishambhar Nath's younger brother, Omkar Nath is a nice man. Fondly known as Omi Chacha by the kids of the house, he admits that it's only sheer chance that he was born in a Marwari family because he is not cut out for business. He has a sensitive heart which he guards fiercely and does not reveal his vulnerability to others. He instead hides it with his wry sense of humuor. It's only his wife who knows that he is a very sensitive man with an unique perspective on life. Yet, she falls short of understanding him completely as he does not conform to any preconceived image. He believes in God but not in the rituals. He is an amiable person but difficult to understand. Hence, the family has accepted him as he is without even trying to probe into his heart.
Anshuman is the youngest child in the house. He is an extremely amiable kid who hates to study and is a complete food buff- so overweight and very cuddly. He is otherwise a smart kid who always has a one liner ready for every occasion. He often brings smiles to people's faces even in the most tense situation and is adored and spoilt by everyone, especially Rajashri.
Gopi daadi is a friend and confidant of Daadi. She came as Daadi's bridesmaid when she was just 12 and Daadi was only thirteen.

The bahus of the house respect her and even obey her. At times, she also scolds the bahus & kids of the house (but never Vishambhar or Omkar).
