We'd asked you, dear readers to share your love stories with us.

Here, Amit tells us how he met and fell in love with his classmate and wife Sharvari.

Amit and Sharvari

Sharvari and I studied in the same school and class.

She says she can't remember me from school but I do.

We hardly spoke in school. I was utterly shy and she was among the class topper.

After our secondary school our paths diverted.

Sharvari pursued her career as a scientist and has completed her Phd in Microbiology from University of Pune.

Meanwhile I was globetrotting.

I got my first job in West Africa, moved to United Kingdom and now in KSA heading the business for an ITES firm.

We met on Orkut and got connected through our school group.

I added her to my list and things started moving.

I saw her after a gap of 10 years.

It was January 2010. I received an e-mail from her saying she will be attending a conference in Winchester England and whether we could meet.

I was joyous and pleasantly surprised. We met on August 27, 2010. Both of us never looked back after that.

I shifted from the UK to Pune and got married in 2011. We cherish every moment of our lives.

We owe our togetherness to social media.

From chat buddies to life partner, it has been an amazing journey. The only thing which bind us together is trust and belief.
