From among four Purushaarth of human life (Dharm, Arth, Kaam and Moksh), this serial is about Dharm. How the Dharm is maintained is shown by the example of King Harishchandra.

This serial is about Arth, the second Purushaarth. How the money should be earned and spent is shown by giving the example of Chaanakya and Chandragupt.

This serial is about Moksh, the fourth Purushaarth. How the Moksh is obtained. The story of Shreshthee (a rich Vaishya) Koti Karn is given as how he leaves everything after living on interest money.

From among four Aashram (Brahmcharya, Grihasth, Vaanprasth and Sanyaas) this serial is about Brahmcharya Aashram is shown with the example of Satyakaam Jaabaal's story as how Haridrum Gautam accepted Satyakaam, having no father's name, Varn, Gotra etc, as his disciple just on the basis of speaking Truth.

This serial is about Grihasth Aashram. It teaches us "Don't hold on to your house, give and grow with your spouse". The great poet Maagh's (of 8th century) story is shown here that how his wife who brought lots of wealth from her parents' house, had become poor because of Maagh's habit of giving away his things to needy people. She does not like it at all and wants to leave him. In the end Maagh has to steal many things from his own house to help a Braahman to marry his daughter, and in this process his wife joins him to give him even her own ornaments.

This serial is about Vaanprasth Aashram. The man should study in Brahmcharya Aashram, earn wealth in an honest way in Grihasth Aashram, earn fame in Vaanprasth Aashram. In fact people should read the stories of those kings who after their sons got ready to take care of the kingdom, they went to forest after giving them the kingdom and left their body by Yog. Who does not do this what he will do in Sanyaas Aashram? Even after losing everything after the MBH war, his kingdom and 100 sons, Dhritraashtra was not ready to go to forest. He stayed 15 years in Hastinaapur. Then only he got ready to go to forest.

Bimbisaar's son Ajaatshatru wanted the kingdom, and Devadatt, even after being the disciple of Buddha wanted the kingdom of Buddha. Ajaatshatru once tried to kill his father but was caught, but as he got the next opportunity he imprisoned his father. But Bimbisaar was also so greedy of his kingdom that he could not crown his son and went to forest. In the meantime Ajaatshatru became the father and immediately understood the importance of son, so he ordered to free his father from the prison, but by then he had lost him.
