Ashtami Sial, a no nonsense Delhi girl with a sassy attitude, matches her bangles with her churidars. She’s not afraid of hard work but refuses to be simply a brood mare to a dour husband. She's determined to build a family with love and will do anything to achieve it. Even herding her husband with the cattle, and building the village herself.
Life in Rori, a rural village in Haryana where the only neighbors are cattle and chickens, takes hard work and a little luck. Surya and Ashtami butt heads as the harsh realities of farming life threatens their home and livelihood. But the shadow of the woman who ripped out Surya’s heart looms over their marriage and might cost him more than he bargained for. Can Surya risk his heart with someone new and leave his past behind? Or will he lose the one person who fell in love with him at first sight?
“You kept secrets from me. You lied. I told you I didn’t want your hands on my property.”
She couldn’t believe he was saying that. “I don’t want your stupid property. What would I do with it?”
“Goodness, I trusted you. You could have told me anytime about this ‘supposed company’.” Why didn’t you?”
“When have you agreed to any of my suggestions?”
“That didn’t give you the right to keep things from me. Oh, you’re good. I have to say. You didn’t let me get a whiff of what you were up to. The loving wife who doted on her husband. You were a superb actress. Perfection,” he said kissing his fingers.
He was being cruel.
“It wasn’t an act. You know I love you.” She stepped forward to touch him.
He was having none of it as he stepped away. Surya flung the papers on the bed. “You betrayed me. When I was adamant about this. How could you? Do you even know what love is?”
“I was only watching out for you.”
This time he screamed and the windowpanes shuddered.
“You were watching out for yourself.”
