Saath Nibhana Saathiya is the story of two cousins — Gopi and Rashi — who are complete opposites. Gopi is an orphan who lives with her Mama-Mami and cousin Rashi. She is very innocent and is illiterate. Rashi is very wise and greedy like her mother Urmila Shah.
The story starts with Kokila Modi's search for a perfect bride for her son Ahem. She chooses Gopi as her daughter-in-law. This makes Rashi and Urmila jealous of Gopi so they trick Ahem's cousin Jigar into marrying Rashi. Ahem leaves his girlfriend Anita for his mother without knowing that Gopi is illiterate.
Rashi and Urmila try to ruin Gopi's married life with their tricks: it fails after Gopi becomes pregnant and gives birth to a baby girl called Meera. Ahem confesses his love for Gopi and after many complications Rashi gives birth to twins named Samar and Sahir. Gopi is also reunited with her parents and sister.
Umang - Anita's brother comes back to get revenge on Ahem by fake loving Radha - Gopi's sister. He already has a wife called Tripti. They try to steal all their money but Kinjal and her grandmother comes and thats when their plan foils. After Umang suddenly dies and everyone sees Gopi holding the knife, Gopi gets arrested but the truth comes out as Tripti had killed Umang.
8 Year Leap
The show took a leap on its 1000th episode. The evil Radha throws a stone and Gopi drops her daughter 'Meera' down the cliff. The Modi family blames Gopi and they throw her out of the house. Radha had fulfilled her plan to get revenge for her lover "Umang".
The story takes an eight-year leap. Rashi returns to her old ways. She is sick of doing all the housework. Meanwhile Gopi has a daughter called Vidya. Gopi now works in a school in Bhopal. Kokila and Ahem fall into depression.
Rashi's two sons Samar and Sahir are too naughty. She sends them to boarding school and ends up sending them to the school where Gopi works. Rashi and Urmila plan to get Ahem remarried so that Rashi does not have to do the chores. However, nothing works! One day Rashi sees Gopi at the school. Samar and Sahir help her so that she can marry Ahem. They trick her and put a chemical in her drink so she is unconscious. Meanwhile Radha is supposed to marry Ahem. Rashi locks Radha in a room and she tells the family Gopi is Radha. They mistake her as Radha as Gopi is wearing a veil. Gopi gets married to Ahem. The family is shocked! They don't accept Gopi and take Gopi's daughter. Hetal convinces Kokila to allow Gopi to stay. Gopi stays and tries to win Ahem's heart.
The truth is that Radha had left Meera at a temple and her name is Gauri. One day Kokila goes to pray at the temple and she overhears Radha and Tripti speak about what really happened. Gauri is at the temple at the same time and Kokila takes Gauri with her. However, Tripti made them meet with an accident.
Kokila loses her memory: She thinks Rashi is Jigna and the children of the family are Ahem, Jigar and Kinjal. Ahem is introduced as a business partner and Gopi as his wife. Jigar is the driver and Radha is the maid. Radha decides to get Gauri out of the house. The family goes on summer camp. Tripti makes Gauri meet by accident. Gauri gets badly hurt. At the hospital Ahem needs to transfer blood to Gauri and they have the same blood type. They discover that Gauri is Meera and Ahem accepts Gopi as his wife. Meanwhile, Radha is scared if Kokila will recall her past.Radha and Tripti finaly gets exposed and they go to jail.
Everything seems to be good in tge Modi Family until Anurag - a teacher comes to Modi Bhavan to tutor the children but it turns out that he loves Gopi from when she was a teacher.
