Thus, she is forcibly separated from her mother, Nupur Joshi and her family at a tender age. 7 years have passed. The Joshi family is convinced that Payal is dead, but Nupur Joshi is still hopeful that Payal is alive. This is true because Payal has not been killed by Rangoli and raised by her instead. Rangoli has given the name Chikoo to Payal. Chikoo has been told by her stepmother Rangoli that she was thrown away by her biological mother in her infancy. Thus, while Nupur lives in prosperity, longing for her daughter, Chikoo or Payal lives in a poor household.
