Celebrating four years of oneness
“Show me a man who is smiling from ear to ear and living a beautiful life, and I will show you a man who is grateful for what he has and utterly in love with his wife” – Fawn Weaver

I am not the most romantic person, in fact I am not romantic at all, I cannot write poems in your praise (does not come naturally to me), you know material things don’t excite me (and to some extent you as well), so even dropped off the idea of sending any expensive jewelry gift, today I am writing this letter to let you know how much you mean to me, how much I appreciate everything that you do for me, for our sweet little doll and my lovely parents, how much I treasure you for loving me in spite of all my imperfections, to some extent my selfishness of working monomaniacally on my goals, my ambitions, my dreams; through this blog I just want to say I Love you, I Love you Rani, I Love you so very much!!
Health and family are the life’s two most precious thing that people take for granted until they lose them. Although I have not been balancing my ‘family’ equation of life so far, today I want to convey you, I do not shy away from my responsibilities; in fact I will be the last person even to think of that. My ‘karma’ may have brought me far away from you but I want to tell you today, no goal, no dream is bigger than you my Life (my wife). My Parents, our little doll, and you, my love, are the most prized possession I have in my Life. I am so happy, fulfilled and so thankful to God that I don’t ask for anything more.
Rani, you are a blessing…
Although I have told you earlier, I want to write here again expressing my thankfulness to God. When I started my professional journey by the end of 2007, I wrote a letter to a girl attracted by her physical beauty. I would call that an ‘infatuation letter’. I wasted 5 to 6 months of my precious time and energy thinking about someone who didn’t matter to me and my family. Well, age and im-maturity was ruling my mind. Looking back, I feel happy and am so thankful to God that things didn’t work my way. At this point I want to convey my Friends who are undergoing similar situation now, please focus on things that matter in your life, your family, your career. God plans things the right way for the right people. Many people say, Narendra, you are a blessing to other’s life, I say, Rani, I am so blessed to have you; you are an absolute blessing in my life and my family.
Rani, as we celebrate our fourth anniversary far away from each other, it just occurred to me what would be the best gift I could offer you today?, and I thought ‘thinking and thinking and writing only about you the entire day would be my best gift.’ British novelist, poet, dramatist and travel writer, Lawrence Durrell once said “The richest love is that which submits the arbitration of time.” My Soulmate, whether it is 200 days or 500 days away from you, my love for you is ever growing and it is growing every single moment. As Friedrich Halm said on Marriage “we are two souls with but a single thought, Two hearts that beat as one.” For all the immense love, the endless care, a VIP level respect and honor, for being so understanding, for instilling confidence and understanding, forever delicious food, for the beautiful smiling face, for our bundle of joy, for all your sacrifices, my sweetheart, today, I want to say, Thank you, thank you, thank you….and Thank you.
