It’s not that true love only exist in books and movies, nowadays people believe in true love and they go ahead to prove it to the world. In a recent post on Facebook by Humans of Bombay, an 86-year old Parsi woman shared her love story and this will surely melt your heart.
Both of them met each other at shorthand classes and they married at the time when love marriages were not common. And after that, they lived happily ever after. The best part of the story is that they did everything in their life to enjoy the essence of love, they worked hard, saved up, traveled the world together and also managed to raise two children. However, she was broken when her husband passed away four years ago. Instead of being shattered she said that in his death he gave her strength. “Now I had to continue my journey for the both of us,” she says. She is enjoying her life and looking after her grandchildren Some of the love stories are definitely eternal and beautiful!
“I met him in Shorthand Typing class — we courted for five years before we got married. It was a love marriage in a time where love marriages didn’t exist. Our relationship was smooth sailing — everyone approved and celebrated how madly in love we were…I mean how could they not? You could feel it in your bones! My husband and I, we lived a simple, yet wonderful life. We worked hard, saved up and traveled the world together. We raised two beautiful children and our life became about the sweet sacrifices to give them the best! From stitching dresses for my daughter, to secretly laughing at all the mischief my son made, it’s been a good life. 4 years ago, my husband passed away peacefully. It broke my heart for a while, but even in death, he gave me strength…because I now had to continue our journey for the both of us. So, I travel the world alone, holding him close to my heart. I look after myself — I exercise, manage our investments and play Rummy twice a week! The highlight of my week is cooking a meal for my grandchildren, every Sunday, as they swarm me with questions about how I met their grandfather and what mischievous antics their parents got up to.
My favorite story to narrate is from when my stubborn, mulish son, risked his life for a kite!So here I am at 86, living a wonderful life in Parsi Colony. Of course, I miss my husband — not a day goes by that I don’t wish he was here, holding my hand…but then that limits our love to being together. I love him as much today, as I did on the first day and that’s why I’ll live happily for the both of us…until we meet again.”
