The love in its platonic form is found mostly in a brother-sister relationship. The brother is like and ocean which always wets the earth and doesn't expect anything in return but in reality what does the earth give to the ocean other than impurities.

This is the story of such a brother Anand who loves his sister Asha more than his own life. He is prepared to do anything to keep Asha happy. The strain in the relationship starts with the marriage of Asha to jealous, greedy and dowry demanding Vinod. The thorns in the relationship of brother and sister due to misdeeds of Vinod and his false allegation separate the brother and sister when Anand is asked by Vinod to leave the house and never make an attempt to see his sister Asha again.

Can the ocean be kept away from meeting the earth? There can be a storm in the calm ocean due to the effect of the moon. KailashnathRana is the moon which creates storm in the mind and heart of the calm and quiet Anand.

Anand changes his complexion and marries Vinod's sister Rama. He makes Vinod realise his misdeeds and also the effects of separation of brother and sister.

The ocean calms down again as no obstacle remains between ocean and earth now.
