Love came to life when an orthopaedic surgeon met a dentist.
Jab we met
Gourab begins to narrate how he began his journey with his wife. "After we liked each other’s profiles, we initiated our conversations through messages and phone calls. She hails from Murshidabad but lived in a hostel close to where I lived, back then and then we finally decided to meet."
His beautiful wife Piyal, a dentist, was unable to join this conversation and so her husband continues the discussion!
The most special birthday
Having a courtship of almost 9 months, very inquisitively, I ask him about that special moment that he would cherish forever and he immediately replies, "My birthday... She came home, decorated the house and prepared my favourite dishes and gave me a wonderful surprise. It was sort of unexpected though", he grins.
His special moment does not end right there but goes all the way to Indonesia. "We had gone to Indonesia for our honeymoon and it was so much fun there. I will cherish these moments forever."
We had our own fun times
Being in a profession like this and having a busy schedule, the obvious question pops out… how do they juggle between work and spending time together. Gourab instantly says, "Yes, it does become difficult, given that our work places are different and I spend a lot of time travelling, but we ensure to take out time for each other whenever possible."
Before I could get to my next question, he adds in, "But initially just after the wedding, our work places was the same, so we got a lot of time to ourselves, especially lunch breaks."
What I love about her...
I ask the most obvious question to him- what do you love the most about her. He gives a simple reply, straight to the point which in itself says how much he adores his wife. "She is very intelligent, logical, not very overwhelming and she keeps her cool. Just how I expected", he laughs.
Before I end the chat, Gourab tells me what he gifted his lovely wife on her birthday, "I made a customized prescription pad for her with her name." Aww...
