Though there are many love tales of yesteryears, Romeo-Juliet or Heer-Ranjha, that have made the world believe in True Love. But, you will hardly find any story of such sacrifice in today’s era.
In today’s times, when youngsters are losing their belief in the power of love and institution of marriage, the story of Shaan Ibraahim Badhshah and his wife Shruthi might reinstate your faith in the power of love.
The beautiful love story of Shruthi and Shaan started in the college when they met each other in some special circumstances and fell in love. And, finally decided to get married.
But, shortly after the marriage, Shruthi was diagnosed with cancer.
In many families, cancer patients are outcasted because of the fear and the pain that disease brings in. But, Shaan chose to believe in the power of his true love. He decided to stand by his wife to support her during her very difficult treatment.
In fact, he underwent the extra mile and tonsured his head when Shruthi started losing her hair for chemotherapy.
Shruthi has just finished her 9th chemotherapy session and the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary.
To mark the occasion, Shaan shared a beautiful post about their relationship on Facebook:
“It all started with a hibiscus flower. She was the girl who came to me with a challenge on the first day of my college life. I was challenged to walk through the college verandah by wearing the flower over my ear. I told her that I would if a certain girl would hold my hand and walk along with me. From that day, Shruthi has become the beautiful hibiscus blossom in my life.
Shruthi first became my red blossom, then my companion, love and my life. She supported me when I struggled to set up life, and conquered me with her love. To honour her love, I gifted a ‘minnu’ (mangalsutra) and made her mine. A petal of the blossom which filled our lives with its sweet smell has fallen – a year of togetherness. It was a year of realisations; the first year of our journey called life. Happy wedding anniversary Priya Sakhi,”
