Rahul & Sonali
(02 July 2008)
It is said, "Marriages are made in heaven". I would like to add something more to it - "Marriages are made in heaven, but soul mates can be found through Shaadi.com".
My fiancée Sonali and I would sincerely like to thank Shaadi.com for providing us the opportunity and the medium to find each other. It's been such a wonderful experience.
I saw Sonali's profile on Shaadi.com, liked it, and showed it to my mother. After the go ahead, I initiated the contact and expressed my interest. This happened in late December last year. Well, Sonali took her time and accepted my proposal by early January this year. Actually, it was her mother who saw my profile first, Okayed it, and then showed it to Sonali. So I had the 'Ok' stamp from her family too. :) When I asked Sonali later why she accepted my proposal, she said, "I read your profile and it appeared very different to me - different from the regular stuff people write about themselves. It appeared very honest."
We shared our email IDs and contact numbers. I called her the next day. We spoke for about 15 minutes. It was a basic discussion - family, education, work, and so on.
Then her father came to our house on Sunday that week. It was decided that Sonali and I should personally meet each other the next Saturday. But we were destined to meet much earlier - in fact we met the next day. She had come to the area where my office is located; she called me up, and that was it - we met in a small restaurant near my office!
We spoke for a while, must be about 30 to 45 minutes. I liked her and she liked me too. :) So we had the official family meet on the Sunday that week, when my family and I visited Sonali's house to see her. There were those regular marriage talks and discussions along with some snacks and tea. :) It was done, approved from everyone in the family!
We got engaged on April 6th on the auspicious day of Gudi Padwa. It was a small private ceremony that took place in the presence of our close relatives and select friends.
The wedding is on November 29 this year. So we have a long courtship going on, which is good actually. :) It is a nice opportunity to spend quality time with each other and understand each other in a better way. I would recommend this to other Shaadi prospects.
So once again, a hearty thanks to Shaadi.com from both of us!
Keep up the great work...
From Sonali & Rahul
