Here's your chance to impress your partner, immortalise your love story AND win GIFTS WORTH Rs 5,000!

And since we're all online, we're making it a little difficult.

All you have to do is tell us your love story in not more than 140 CHARACTERS (not 140 words). Put on your thinking caps, be a little imaginative and tell us about that one fleeting moment when you felt your heart race and cellos play!

For instance: 'Saw you, felt bliss.'

If cheese isn't your cup of tea, tickle your funny bone and tell us about your love with your tongue firmly in cheek.

For instance: 'Went looking for love. Found my wife.'

We're dying to hear from you and waiting to give away goodies to three really smart responses that'll make us smile.

Up for grabs are a mobile phone, a pair of diamond earrings and a stylish messenger bag!

So what are you waiting for? Hurry and send us your love story in not more than 140 characters (spaces included). Feel free to use SMS lingo as long as it is meaningful to a wide cross section of audience.
