I have always been an emotional person. I felt that falling in love will be a special experience. And very recently I experienced a gesture so unique, so utterly heart-warming, that I decided to share it with everyone.
I was invited for a shoot by POPxo (a community for women’s fashion, beauty and lifestyle needs) on a pleasant summer afternoon in Delhi. I headed to Gandaram Jewellersin Lajpat Nagar for the same and the platinum bands on display were gorgeous. I was even more amazed to find out that one didn’t need to burn a huge hole in their pockets to buy one of those bands. Platinum Love Band collection start Rs 15000/- onwards! Now that was a steal!!
While I was totally looking forward to the shoot, I was also secretly lusting for those bands. Alas! I had to get on with work. And so I got ready for the shoot, put on some of my favourite bands and asked my camera person to get the lighting in place.
As I took my spot, I saw a figure walk in through the door. With all the lights on me, it was hard to spot who it was. He was headed in my direction but then suddenly stopped at the platinum counter. I got on with work and smiled my way through the hour-long shoot. After we were done, I went back to the counter to hand over the platinum bands. To my surprise, I saw my boyfriend perched comfortably on one of the store’s sofas. I did not expect this.
He got up as he spotted me and gave me a warm hug. When I asked him what he was doing there, he simply shrugged and said, “Oh nothing, just remembered it is the exact same day I met you for the first time.” I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered. Slowly but steadily, he drew something out of his pocket. It was a platinum band. No. Way!!!!
He’d bought me one of the pretty platinum bands I’d been admiring earlier. And while he slipped it onto my finger, he said, “This is to celebrate the day I met the most beautiful girl I’ve ever laid eyes on.” My heart skipped a beat and I was trying really hard to contain a wide grin. Was he for real? How lucky am I?
While writing this post, I look back on that day and blush. It is a surprise, an experience I will always remember. Because everything aside, those bands sealed our bond. This was indeed my Platinum Day Of Love.
