Our love story …… A first impression will be about a college going girl sharing her first crush but here is a mum of 2 rewinding her life and a flashback to not just 5, 10 or 15 years but ………….. 17 years, Wow! That was the time when we first met in college together as batchmates but who would have thought we will be soulmates forever. Reliving the journey from batchmates to soulmates which started 17 years back.
Our story of batchmates to soulmates
I do believe in destiny as you meet people for some reasons, as joining this college was not on my dad’s list and me too never thought about it but finally, I was there or I was meant to be there.
I have officially met Nikhil during our 2nd year of college but for him, it was way before that when he saw me, ” It was during our 1st-year exams and I was busy writing my exams”, just read it as writing only. As he always teases me that I thought you were too studious and writing so much to give me a complex when I don’t know what to write in exams.
It all started when I went up to him to ask for freshers party fund collection and he was the first one to pass money, we were surprised as during college days no one wants to shell out any money. I asked my friend, Is he new in the college?
We thought let’s be friends, don’t know he couldn’t say “No” or he didn’t want to say “No” but what so ever it was just magical!
When in a group of 10, you only want to be with him!
When that one person not around you makes everything dull!
When every moment is a celebration when you are together!
When just two of you makes this world complete!
It was love at first sight when your heart says you have found someone you have been waiting for and your mind can’t decide is he the one! Those were the most beautiful moments dreaming and living in your world when everything around you is like a fairy tale. It took us one year to say!
” I Love You”
We were so much looking forward to last day of our 2nd-year exams but I didn’t know there was much more planned for this day! Busy completing my exams, I just looked around and can’t find him. For a while, I thought he is done with his exams as I seriously did bad that day.
Just outside the examination hall saw him in a hurry, as he has forgotten something in the classroom. We both rushed there but to my surprise couldn’t find anything and just to turn back to see my prince charming with flowers and a handwritten letter. I still remember every word by heart and I wish that time would have stopped then and there, holding hands and can see the entire world in each other eyes. It was the perfect moment for which we have waited for so long.
I couldn’t spoil the mood more than this when I said, “I will reply to this later” and we head off for a movie together. Just wanted this day to be a memorable day for us and “Yes, I do” to the man of my dreams who waited for so long.
After 4 and a half years of courtship, we got married on 27th Nov’2003!
Though life has shown us the phase where everything seems to be out of our reach and we were not sure what next god has held for tomorrow but we still got the best of our time together when we felt that our relation doesn’t need words to express how much important we are to each other .Just you & I next to each other will surpass all the tough times .Every time you said ” Don’t worry ! I am always there with you ” makes me more strong and I felt that when you are there I will be alright ! Maybe god also felt the same way and we both are together to celebrate another wonderful & blessed years of togetherness!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you sweetheart :))
It was 18th May’ 1999 when we decided to be together forever and now I am writing about it on the same date 17 years later….
Thanks to The Chill Mom for starting this Blog train and I got a chance to write about it after 17 years. At the next stop of this blog train, we will be visiting Danessa Foo at PrayerFull Mum. A proposal is a special moment and should be treated as such. Not a big fan of grand gestures, my then-fiancé surprised me nonetheless. We have dozens of cute stories to tell the grandchildren, and the proposal is one of them.
