In The Name Of Love: Trushna and Ashwin Tibrewala

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…

Trushna and Ashwin Tibrewala

Trushna, Entrepreneur

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

I was sure that he was my dream man as he has all the qualities I had always looked for – the most caring, loving, generous, kind and a fabulous sense of humour.

What is the definition of a strong, healthy relationship to you?

A strong and healthy relationship is all about living for each other, accepting your partner the way they are and not trying to change them. Add a little bit of spice every single day, and keep that trust and love between the two always alive.

Tell us about the bond you two share?

We both share a very special bond. He pampers me like a Baby – surprises me every now and then, make me feel like a Queen, compliments me every now and then and is always by my side.

Define your relationship

We got married when we were just 20. So we have actually grown up together and that is the best part.


Ashwin, owner of Amit and Concap capacitors

What is the definition of a strong, healthy relationship?

Communication is the key. It is one of the most important qualities for a healthy relationship.

Tell us about the bond you two share?

We are friends first and then a couple. We listen before we speak, we understand each other, we go for drives every now and then and most importantly we love, respect and trust each other.

What is his best personal quality?

She delivers unconditional love and spreads happiness wherever she goes.

One random happy memory you can think of…

The happiest one would be when I got married to her.
