My wife and I first met at an apartment lobby in Bangalore in 2001.

We studied in same college and lived in adjacent flats.

It was Rashmi's first smile that drove me towards her.

We are basically Gujaratis, and we were in Bangalore to study engineering.

After finishing our studies in 2004, we got separated for few years as Rashmi had to move to London -- where her parents had shifted.

But the long distance relationship didn't separate us and she finally returned to India (Jamnagar, Gujarat).

We got married in 2008 instead of settling in London, so it was a dream come true for both of us.

Today we have a three-year-old son Arnav, and we live happily together with lots of love in our little world.
