In The Name Of Love: Farha Kudari and Srinivas Gunishetty


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…

Farha Kudari and Srinivas Gunishetty

Farha, Wedding Planner

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

Freedom to be yourself, having your personal space and trusting each other.

Tell us about the bond you two share?

A lot of people call us “Tom & Jerry”. We work together and so end up spending most of our time together and obviously that leads to a lot arguments and funny illogical fights but overtime we have learnt the art of balancing it and that is the key to our bonding.

What is his best personal quality?

Innocent heart like a child, extremely patient and very responsible.

One random happy memory you can think of… 

The way he hid a ring box in our third wedding anniversary cake and asked me to cut it. When the knife did not go in we had to put our hands and dig into the cake to get the box out.

Srinivas, Event Planner

What is the definition of a strong, healthy relationship?

For me a relationship with strong trust and ethics is a healthy one.

What is her best personal quality?
She is intelligent, smart, selfless and beautiful.

Define your relationship…

Our relationship is romantically complicated. We fight, we love each other, we miss each other and we care for each other… We can’t do anything without each other.

One random happy memory you can think of…

The first day after marriage when we moved in to our house. She had actually set up the entire house by herself already as I was busy.
