Niraj & Shiela
(21 April 2008)
Dear Shaadi.com Team,
I joined Shaadi on 7th October 2007, one day after my birthday and expressed interest in Shiela on the same day itself as I loved her profile and her picture. She replied on 12th October 2007 and we spoke for the first time on 15th October 2007 and immediately fell in love.
I had viewed over 400 profiles and was feeling a little disheartened although it was my first day of joining Shaadi by the time I found my sweetheart Shiela who lives in London UK. At the time I lived in Florida, USA so after the numerous phonecalls, emails & IM chats we felt that we just had to meet soon so I applied for a Visa for the UK since I still have an Indian passport and proposed to her the very day I landed at London Heathrow Airport on 26th December 2007. Shiela accepted there and then and we both just fell into each others arms.
Shiela then visited me in the USA for two weeks on 8th February 2008 where she met my children and my family. One of us would have to move to the others country so we decided that I’d move to UK. I would have to leave my 3 beautiful kids Karishma 8, Avinash 7 and Akshay 3. I was heartbroken.
I applied for a Marriage Settlement Visa and was surprised at the speed it was granted in. I received notification that the Visa had been granted in one day. I then sold all my belongings and booked my ticket to the UK. We thought that we’d finally be together forever hereafter but unfortunately, my passport got stolen which meant that I’d have to get the passport reissued and then apply for another Visa. I had already handed in my notice at my workplace but I had to take leave and went to Washington DC to get the passport reissued, returned to Florida where I extended my employment by a couple of weeks and then returned to Washington once the passport was ready so that I can apply for another Visa. We were both devastated but I knew that this is just a test to see how much I love Shiela.
This time also it was issued in one day and I started my Journey to the UK with a one-way ticket on 5th April 2008. Everyone was very happy to see me again, especially Shiela.
We have fixed a marriage date of 9th May 2008.
Shiela was on the site for 3 months and she found me towards her last two weeks and I found her within my first two weeks.
Thanks to Shaadi.com we found our each other. Our soul mates.
