I remember watching this TV series long ago on Indian television where a widow or divorced woman moved with her kids into a haunted house with an angry ghost who was not welcoming at the start.
Plot: This single mother moves with her kids (I guess two kids; one male, one female) to a new house. Probably the father is dead or she is divorced. The ghost is a grumpy male who was in some job like Navy or Army or something similar when he was alive. He loves his house and scares away occupants but with this family, he gets attached.
A lot of shenanigans happen and the villain of the week type format follows. Villains were sometimes humans and sometimes supernatural.
Specific episode: A weird looking guy uses makeup to make his lips look bigger and threatens humanity with a continued solar eclipse unless they fulfill his wishes.
Telecast Year: somewhere in the early 2000s (can be mid-2000s too)
Country: India (North Indian to be precise)
Type: Live action/coloured
Character looks: Ghost used to wear a hat (Indian Army/Navy/Police type). The mother wears Indian traditional (Saree/suit type). Kids were school-going age like 13-16 I guess.
It was an individual show not part of any horror show like Aahat/Shhh koi hai
