Keshina & Pratik – A Love By Chance
September 30, 2020
They found love in the most unexpected places
Keshina and Pratik’s love story came to life on a beautiful morning at Marine Drive. The endless ocean as a backdrop, the promenade to play on – this vibrant hub was their first pick as a location to showcase their love. And this Platinum Day of Love was marked by a wonderful moment when Keshina decided to take matters into her own hands and surprised Pratik with a proposal! The couple, both bright, young and evolved, value equality in every way. They see each other as equals, treat each other with respect, consider each other’s needs, and support one another.
Their precious, unique relationship began by chance but seemed determined by fate. “Though we’d been introduced by a mutual friend in college, we first met in a crowded market place called Suthar Chawl in Mumbai,” Keshina says. “We owned businesses here and we’d bump into each other and smile. Our ‘hellos’ were extended when we connected eventually on social media.” Keshina was a complete tomboy and tough on the opposite sex but Pratik sussed that she had a soft corner for a few things, like her NGO.
Keshina smiles as she says, “He became an active member of my favorite NGO. From Masjid Bandar to Chakala and Zaveri Bazar to Abdul Rehman Street, we started seeing each other in all these markets. Love blossomed in the most unexpected places. I started developing a soft corner for him but was not so sure about my feelings and was nervous too! Our friendship blossomed into love and it was clear that it was genuine and loyal. We’ve been together for a while and it’s ironic how it all worked out perfectly. He understands me in a way no one else could!”
After establishing a solid friendship and a unique bond, it was time for Pratik to declare his love for Keshina. “He had feelings for me from day one so he proposed to me on a college confession page, but I couldn’t identify who it was, so I ignored it. Then, a year into our friendship, we were on an Activa in a market and looking into the mirror, he proposed. I was speechless and nervous! He asked me to take my time but I knew in my heart that it was going to be a yes!”
Keshina firmly believes that the love she and Pratik share is truly one-of-a-kind. “He has the most peaceful vibe around him. He’s the only one who can handle my tantrums and mood swings. His patience is the key to my heart! We are equal partners who agree on goals together and work as a team to achieve these goals. We both show equal commitment to the relationship and provide mutual support and nurturing. And that’s what brings balance, and is our point of connection. That’s what makes what we share so special and unique.
I think platinum love bands are perfect for us as they stand for rare love. These platinum love bands are symbolic of the bond I share with him. Precious, rare and enduring.”
