Flashback – 30 Years…

“Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.” …                

― Kahlil Gibran

It was a good day. There were doubts in the mind of a 20-something girl on August 11, 1989. There was still more work to be done, more education, more fun, and of course, the love of independence. However, she realised, and so did her family, that finding a soulmate is once in a lifetime opportunity. Reluctant at first, but she was a happy bride on this day, thirty years ago (February 27, 1990).

And what a life. There was whirlwind, hiccoughs, adventure, love, and loads of fun, all in six years.

At the wedding hall, sitting on the dais, the young couple was happy and dreamy. A match made in heaven did not seem a cliché. The first six years passed pretty quickly, bestowing me with a gift of two wonderful children, and in its wake, bequeathing a lifetime of love, friendships, and memories.

Thirty years did not go by in a jiffy or at the snap of the fingers. The short-lived togetherness and the long years of being alone – it was indeed an eternity. The only result is the love of two amazing children, of the life lived in those six years, of the numerous anecdotes still being shared, and the sweetness of many friendships created for a lifetime.

Always celebrating, every year in remembrance. What a day it was when so many people came together to unite two soulmates that even made the angels envious.

Here’s to the 30th anniversary and counting.

“Though lovers be lost, love shall not; And death shall have no dominion.

― Dylan Thomas

    Happy anniversary sarika…what a beautiful way to celebrate the wonderful day in your life. A loving memory. Recently it was my parents wedding anniversary and I wished my mother so. She was amazed as it’s been imbibed in us that such anniversaries have a meaningful ng when both , husband n wife, are there. Since my father is no more, she said in a hushed tone….but he is not there! I said, but we are there because of you! So it’s a happy day for us.
    As you grow older, you question so many happenings around you. Memories are meant to be celebrated….laugh, respect and celebrate.
