Just married!

Plato states that humans originally had four arms, four legs, and a single head made of two faces, but Zeus feared their power and split them all in half, condemning them to spend their lives searching for the other half to complete them. Prima facie this might sound too ridiculous but as a metaphor we indeed are looking for a soul-mate who completes us.

I would say I am extremely lucky to have found a person who completes me in every sense of the phrase. Knowing Deepti has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. I didn’t plan on falling in love with her, and am sure neither did she plan on falling in love with me. But once we met, something beautiful was created like an instant chemistry, a connection. Like the phrase we often hear in the movies, “We just clicked”. I am not saying that everything has been peaches and cream.  Contrary to popular belief… I can be really difficult at times but she has been very patient in handling me. She laughs at my rude and mean jokes (well.. at-least before marriage this is happening).  We fight silly at times, yet we fell in love, despite our few differences. Marriage is not just finding a hand that perfectly fits yours, It’s also finding the one who is willing to hold your hands no matter how unfit it may be.

All these days I believed that “We don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it” but last few months with Deepti have made me realize “We don’t know what we have been missing until it arrives”.  My ‘rest of life’ starts now as I am tying the knot with my lady and about to start a new chapter in the story of my life. I am ending the previous chapter with the most clichéd line – “and they lived happily ever after.”
