Shiva is from an agricultural background family and has a loving family—father, mother, sister, brother and most importantly, his sister-in-law Ganga, who adores him. Sarang learns of the romance and kills Shiva, Chand and everyone in Shiva's family. However, Ganga, who was pregnant at the time, had just fainted. She makes an oath /saugandh that she will make Sarang bow his head. She challenges Sarang that she will have a son and Sarang will have a daughter and that her son will become Sarang's son-in-law and will make him bow his head. Sarang accepts the challenge and declares that he will kill her son when that day comes. Her son is named Shiva Kirplani and Sarang names his daughter Chand (Shanti Priya).
