Whenever Shyama (Komal Mahuvakar) danced with the rhythm of Gopal's (Alankar) Nagara (Drums) during village festivals all used to praise her. But one day when she went to the nearby town with Gopal to witness the dance recital of famous Kathak dancer Veena (Surinder Kaur), Shyama wished to learn such classical dances, Gopal requested Veena to teach Shyama. But Veena refused to oblige and her Guru Dinanath pushed them out. Gopal went to noted Guru Kishan Maharaj, who refused to listen to his request to accept Shyama as his disciple. As luck would have it, Kishan Maharaj's daughter Seeta was kind enough to allow Shyama to do household chores. When she got time from her household work, she would quietly go near the Nritalaya and keenly watch the Guru rehearsing with his disciples. What she saw, she practiced alone in the stillness of night.
