Rajasekhar strongly believes that love takes time to grow. The initial spark is necessary to start off the conversation but only time can help discover love. I ask Rajasekhar at what point he realised that Kalyani is the one. He says, “It is hard to specify a single incident. It was not a spontaneous thing for us. Though we were comfortable with each other from day one, we took time to realize the bond between us. We used to share everything with each other. As she is quite outspoken it became easier for us.”
When I ask the couple about their first meet, Kalyani begins,
“We first met at a mall and I was a bit hesitant to begin the conversation as I was nervous but he was at ease. As we kept speaking, I got comfortable.” Rajasekhar adds, “I was really eager and excited to know her. I liked how honest and upfront she was.”
As Rajasekhar and Kalyani were working in different places, I ask her as to how they managed to do their wedding shopping together. She says, “Even though we did our shopping individually we needed each other’s opinions and that was through video calls and chats. But now, I often drag him for shopping. I really get bored if he doesn’t come along.”
When I ask Kalyani about some unforgettable moments they have had together, she says, “Our birthdays fall within a gap of ten days. We did plan to meet each other on our birthdays as it was our first together but we couldn’t. Yet, I threw a surprise for him. Online gifts paved the way to express my love. I wanted his birthday to start with a cake and then followed it up with many gifts like a wooden photo frame with our engagement photo, a customised pillow of our picture together and a customised mobile case. He was surprised with all the gifts that he received over two days. On my birthday, we both connected through calls for the entire day. Though it was a virtual connection, I really felt his presence.”
I then ask Rajasekhar to tell something about their wedding day, to which he says, “We preferred a simple wedding with our friends and relatives. The whole day was full of fun as we clicked many photographs and performed all the wedding rituals. The most memorable moment was when we tied the knot. It was the life changing moment of our lives and we both got emotional.”
Wishing the couple life full of surprises and happiness!
