Raghu and Gayathri extend mutual support towards each other's dreams.
The Breakfast Meeting
Raghu says it was his parent's choice to register with "TamilMatrimony as it is known for its wider choice of match". He goes on to recall his first meeting with Gayatri. "My parents and I met Gayathri at a restaurant in Hyderabad. And after that meet, it was a yes from my side."
Raghu is a man who had clear expectations before the wedding. He lists down few of the qualities that he looked for in a life partner. "I wanted somebody who is traditional. And through Gayathri, all my expectations have been fulfilled".
Final Decision was Made on her Birthday
Their parents took the final decision only after a few days. "In order to finalise everything both the families decided to meet again. Coincidentally, Gayathri's birthday also fell on that day".
Raghu and Gayathri used to meet often during their courtship days. "We met at least 6 times before the wedding," Raghu says with a smile. And once she gifted me a lovely coffee mug.
Special Place for My Parents
We go on to quiz Gayathri on what is unique about Raghu. She gives us a quick reply. "His caring nature. He has special affection towards my parents. I don’t have words to describe on how he cares for my parents".
Supports My Dreams and Goals
The young research scholar Gayathri says that she feels so lucky for having found Raghu. "Since the wedding, life has changed for good. He gives me constant encouragement and support to pursue my dreams".
Before we could end the interview, Gayathri and Raghu leave a valuable message for all the young people out there:
"Transparency is the key. Being truthful to each other is the most important aspect in a beautiful marital relationship".
