After her father’s death, this daughter turned into a matchmaker to help her mother find love again in the most admirable way possible.
Losing a life partner is never easy. It brings unbearable grief as you tend to miss the person in every small aspect of life. The thought of being left alone pushes many into the bottomless pit of sadness and grief.
Though many suffer through the feeling of loneliness throughout their life, Jaipur’s Sanhita Agarwal refused to let her mother suffer from this endless pain.
Around 3 years ago, Geeta Agarwal lost her husband Mukesh Gupta to a deadly heart attack.
As Geeta’s elder daughter was married, her younger daughter Sanhita used to live with her and tried to cheer her up to reduce her pain. But things worsened when Sanhita had to move out of Jaipur for a job.
Lonely and not able to share her feelings and grief with anyone, her 53-year-old mother went into depression.
“I used to curse myself for leaving my mother behind. I visited her over the weekends so that she could be happy at least for two nights but still felt selfish for choosing my career over her”
It was during this tough time, Sanhita made up her mind to do something that requires a lot of courage and strength.
She created her mother’s matrimonial profile on the website and gave her own number for people to connect.
Sanhita further shared:
“Everyone needs a partner in life – you cannot share everything with your children. Without my mother’s consent, I created her profile on a matrimonial site and put my mobile number there.”
After a few widowers approacher her through the site, Sanhita shared everything with her mother. As expected, her mother completely rejected her idea to remarry. And, what made it heartbreaking was the fact that her family was also against the idea of her mother’s remarriage.
But Sanhita refused to give up. And after spending some time, she eventually convinced them. Sanhita made sure that she supports her mother throughout the process.
So, she would meet the potential match first before passing it to her mother.
And, one of such potential match was KG Gupta, a 55-year-old revenue inspector from Banswara. He had lost his wife to cancer in 2010 and had two sons.
Finally, Sanhita got the smile back on her mother’s face, as she managed to find her a perfect companion.
At IFORHER, we wish Geeta luck for her new innings and hope our strong daughters & sons will seek inspiration from Sanhita’s courage. And they will stand against the social norms to bring back happiness in parent’s life.
