Laxmi was brought up under the shadow of Ram Pyari who tries her best to prevent Laxmi from seeing the light of the day. Laxmi finds herself incompatible with the environments prevailing there and revolts against that order to educate herself to get out of that mire to lead a good and respectable life being denied to her. Her urges are quite human but Ram Pyari because of her own selfish ends puts impediments between her and her goal. The Providence comes to her help and sends a man in the form of Nirmal in her life. Nirmal is professor in a local college founded by Seth Jamnadas who did everything with a view of material gain. Nirmal is an ideal young man dedicated to his profession. He is neither a reformer nor leader, but as a human being he feels that she too has has a right to aspire and attain a respectable position in the society. He begins to teach her. His determination and character instill in her a courage to fight for her own existence. Nirmals resolution to give Laxmi a status in the society brings him in clash with the "apostles" of the society. He is suspended from his service and is charged before the managing committee of the college by the founder of the college Seth Jamanadas. On the other side Ram Pyari with her henchmen is thirsty for his blood for he deprived her of her gold mine. The forces of vice and virture are pitted against each other.
