In The Name Of Love: Sakhi and Rohit Chugani

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…

Sakhi and Rohit Chugani

Sakhi, Director Ramesh Watch Co.

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

There was an immediate connection when we first met, we just clicked. The nice thing was that we got to grow as friends for a long while before becoming a couple.

What is the definition of a strong, healthy relationship?

It is built on a solid foundation of friendship. Respecting and paying attention to each other is important.

Tell us about the bond you two share?

He is my support system. We share a bond where we respect each other’s opinions.

What is his best personal quality?

He can make me smile at anytime! He completes me.

Rohit Chugani, Director, Ramesh Watch Co.

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

I was studying in Mumbai when we started talking. The further apart I was from her, the more I wanted to be with her and the more every other girl seemed to be boring when compared to her. That is when I knew.

Tell us about the bond you two share?

We are each other’s best friends.

What is her best personal quality?

She can get anything done for me. She is my superwoman – I just need to think about it and it is done. It is got the bad out in me because she has made me completely lazy.

One random happy memory you can think of…

The happiest memory is when I saw her in her bridal outfit walking towards me. It made me feel complete, and that definitely would be the best moment of my life.
