Strange are the ways of love but stranger still are the vicissitudes of LIFE. AAS is the story of such vicissitudes in the life of a girl Asha who was always the victim of untold toils, trials and tribulations at the hands of Destiny.

She comes to serve as a governess to motherless Kishore in the house of Mr. Ashok. But the forces of heart triumph over those of reason. She gets so strongly attached to Kishore that Mr. Ashok proposes to her and they are married. Time passes and Asha gives birth to a son. But all are not happy at this Change. Ashok's chachi who is the master of all she surveys enters the scene at the moment and tries her best to undo the done. She gets all support from her attendant Chanda. Even old guardian cum master is unable to right her wrongs. False charges are labelled at innocent Asha. Even her motherly love is questioned. And she is turned out of the house with her darling son, where she was welcomed as the mistress.

Kishore cannot live without her. She cannot live without Kishore. Ashok is just a changed person.

He is always brooding on his misfortunes. He cannot easily bear all that cruel Destiny has brought on him. He asks masterji. 'Could a woman change so much?' What could the poor master say?

Asha on the other hand is passing most miserable days. She could not get any decent job. And her darling little one was ailing.

How long will she be wondering like that? Will she ever be able to prove her innocence? Will Asha meet her darling child Kishore and will Ashok once more love her as his wife?

Could woman changes so much? Now who can tell that will happen?

Only the Silver Screen will solve your clue.
