About to get married to a male she has never seen leave alone come to know, Menaka Singhal narrates her love story to her Bua. How she met with Simla-based wealthy Rahul Ahuja, their romance, which was vehemently opposed by her friend, Suman. When he proposed marriage and wanted to know where she lives, she wrote it on a hundred Rupee note, inserted it in the Dhan Petti of a Mandir, and told him that if they are fated to meet then he will come across this note, locate her, and she will wed him. She then returns home to her mansion in Greater Kailash, New Delhi where she lives with her parents, Pratap and Gayetri, as well as an uncle and aunt. Rahul meets with the Mandir's Poojary but is told that he must wait for a month before the Dhan Petti can be opened. After one month, he attends the Mandir, searches for the note but is unable to locate it. Submissive Menaka has resigned herself to her fate and has consented to marry Ravi - a decision that neither she nor anyone in her patriarchal family can even think of opposing.
