In The Name Of Love: Nitika and Sunny Khandelwal

It’s that time of year, when romance reigns supreme. Candlelit restaurant dinners, candy, cards, gifts, flowers. Endless expressions of love.
Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I’m all for celebrating love – but strangely enough, there aren’t too many like me left. The thought process around me seems to be so different from mine, that I am left questioning myself at times.

Even though Valentine’s Day is extremely popular with the younger generation – the generation doesn’t quite believe in love anymore. We belong to that set of people who are on multiple dating apps, randomly hooking up and are ever-so-spoilt with choice. Commitment is a phobia and forever seems too boring. We’re all borderline dysfunctional and seem to be quite proud of it. But on the other hand, in the middle of this, there are still a few, who have managed to keep their sanity in place – those few who believe in the ‘happily ever after’.

They were not scared of tying the knot as they didn’t think that marriage would tie them up.

Keeping the spirit of February 14 alive, we picked a couple of those couples – who are our ray of hope at the end of this dark tunnel. Read on ahead, to know them better and understand their relationships a bit more…

Nitika and Sunny Khandelwal

Nitika, event manager

What was that moment that you realized that he is the one? 

When I first met him, he wasn’t like any other person of his age. He was down to earth and caring and that’s where the spark ignited.

Tell us about the bond you two share? 

With our busy schedules, managing work, home and kids isn’t an easy task at all. But we never stopped prioritising each other. At times, we are best buddies, best counsellors and best teachers to each other. Our lives are most beautiful when we are together.

What is his best personal quality?
His understanding nature

Define your relationship…
It’s like a ‘khata meetha’ cocktail, with the best flavours of life.

Sunny, anchor and emcee

What was that moment that you realized that she is the one? 

When her simplicity and her humbleness took over all the jazz I was a part of. People become friends and fall in love next, we fell in love and then became friends.

Tell us about the bond you two share?
We are opposites which attract…I am a total PDA kind of person, which she is not. We spend professional time together and the care, concern, love is never missed.

What is her best personal quality?

She has an eye for perfection, that’s how she chose me!

Define your relationship…

It’s the most beautiful thing that ever happened to me.
