Today is my 4 th wedding anniversary. Four years back on this day I entered the wedlock by clasping the hands of a young, beautiful but willful lady and walked the stage around a bricked dice of fire.
Our first year of marriage was blissful, but come the second year and I was down with this dangerous disease which could have become fatal but for all the prayers of my family; my wife in particular.
I know I haven’t afforded my wife all that she wished for, having a long wish list, but the saddest moments in my life were to lie on a hospital bed, realizing that so early in her married life I made her see the days of distress. The part of the story **Mai Butivul vaiph** where the protagonist looks at his wife when told by the doctor "" that it may be because of all the prayers of my wife that I am seeing this day"" is alike in my case. It is taken from my life, when during one of the final check-ups, the doctor said something similar to me and I looked at my wife and she had a faint smile on her lips. I have this ability to freeze the moment and capture the instance into my memory album, and that smile on her lips, in slow motion, her lips gently moving nonchalantly, zoomed and focused, is captured for ever. Though the rest of the story is made-up, the feelings and the love I have for her is completely true.
I am so absolutely-totally-utterly-head-over-heel in love with my wife, and I know I run the risk of sounding clichéd. We fight all the time when together, over such silly issues like TV channels, but now I don’t even bother to switch it on.We have clashed many times for coffee, but now tea tastes so much better, all because it reminds me of her. We argued all along on many differences, but all of a sudden she has no flaws. We fight and call each other crazy names, but when it comes to a third person , I have seen her fight with all her tooth and nail for me.
And People say love does the strangest of things, I guess it does. It makes a sane man like me, go completely loopy. But then I know it’s the knowledge that you are there in life to make me sane again. To the woman in my life, who takes all my crap, fantasies , and crazy dreams and converts them into veracity, I cant tell you enough how much I love you. Happy wedding anniversary.
