Our first meeting was so Bollywood style… my dad was on a bed with paralysis & my mom want me to get settled but I had some other plans “Not to get married ” Mayank’s aunt planned her summer vacation to our neighbors as they were relatives & saw me taking care of my dad.
She told my mom that she thinks that his nephew will be the perfect match for me and given the phone number of his parents. My mom spoke to them without my knowledge and suddenly when I returned back from my job she said “Apna biodata mail kar do” & gave me 2 mail ids with my pic to scan n send …after so much argument I said ok and went cyber cafe to mail on both id’s (one id was of Mayank & other was his sister) as my mom noted the wrong id of his sister…mail BOUNCED & my bio data along with pic only reached to Mayank!!
He says he was in love with my smile & called his parents n said yes you can go n meet her.
He added me on yahoo chat and we started chatting… very generally I told him about my plans that until papa is not well and stand up on his own I will not marry.. he said ok … n told me that he will make sure he will respect my decision but gradually we started chatting n after few weeks he called he… we started talking on phn too .. he told me that his parents are planning to visit my place to see me and told me how to dress so that his mom gets impressed & I did ..I, myself don’t know when I started liking him.. his parents visited n liked me and even fixed our engagement date also … I was happy and even he was sounding same but still, we have not met each other…. now as it termed officially all though we should meet & say yes as they all were unaware that we are talking each other from long.
I was about to visit my sister place in Hyderabad and as he was posted in Pune so decided that he will come down to Hyderabad and meet me, then we can tell d decision to our families.
Day arrived 19th August 2006 he entered my sister’s place with my high heartbeat and how he would look like? How will he react? How will he smile? Will he say yes? So many questions were just flashing!!!
He came and it was decided that we will go in a mall there we can talk and as we went there, all others left us alone and we both standing in front of some jewellery shop first sentence he said “Ruchi let’s go and buy a ring …for you” and I was like on cloud 9 …
We called our parents and told them that it’s yes from our side too!!! And on 29th April 2007 we tied knot for many more lives it’s 10 years of togetherness but still my heart pumps like it’s just happened a few seconds back.. we got 2 faces of our love Ira and Viraj our kids and he kept his promise “Ruchi these many years your papa treated you as princess now my turn to treat you as queen of my life..” and so I am …Queen of my king !!!
