It was Facebook and a pair of ball pythons that connected us. Abhijit is a nature & wildlife enthusiast. His habit of keeping strange and exotic pets in his house including a pair of ball pythons, a marmoset and a persian cat is what compelled me to ping him.
We didn't know that we existed on each others facebook friend list. One day when a picture of him with a snake on his palm popped in my newsfeed, i having herpetophobia, couldn't contain my curiosity to ask him how on earth has he managed to keep "snakes" as pets.
And then it began. From facebook messenger to whatsapp and then to phone calls.
Coming from different backgrounds and having different tastes in almost everything, we never imagined that we could get along with each other. But destiny had something surprising written for us.
Interestingly, Abhijit was terrified by the idea of marriage before meeting me and i, on the other hand, was busy filling forms and applying for visa to UK for my higher studies.
But, love hit us hard. He conquered his fear of marriage for me and i decided to stay back and study in my hometown for him.
Within 5 months after meeting for the first time as facebook friends, we got engaged and in the next year, happily married.
A love-cum-arranged marriage it was!
It is said that "Soul mates are people who bring out the best in each other. They are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. When it's time for them to meet, no force in universe can prevent them from meeting." #thebridesofindia #wedding #couplegoals #weddingday #shaadi #brides #indianbride
