On our private yacht the 4th of July Sushank popped the question and I said YES!

Belonging to LGBTQ Community has never been easy for anybody as the society doesn't accept such people with whole heart. This was difficult for us too. We were bullied in our school life and also didn't have any courage to show our true selves in the initial stages .

Sushank and I met in London 2017. Sushank went to London to do cancer research. While Sushank was there, his friend made a tinder for him. I was the first person that Sushank messaged and was intrigued by him right away. We had our first date on 31 December 2017 and the rest is history. It was love at first site. Our love for our families is something that made us connect right away.

After dating for a 1 year and a half Sushank proposed me on 4th July 2019. Sushank wanted the proposal to be intimate but also celebrate our love and freedom. What better day of celebrating then 4th July in New York. On our private yacht during the fire work display, Sushank popped the question and I ecstatically and I ecstatically accepted.

Sushank has made London a second home for him and I have made New York a second home for me, hence the proposal was done in his hometown.

I knew he was 'The one' when I met him. I think thats what happens when you meet your soulmate; you feel a little bit more in love every single day . Home isn't a place anymore - it's a person.

There is something unbelievably refreshing about meeting someone who are on the same life frequency as you. Everything feels effortless and natural. You just embrace it, and it's beautiful.
