My Story: The Excuses We Make To Meet Our Love

“In those days we needed a visa to visit Goa, so I’d gone to the city of Karwar with my friends to get it. We stayed there for 2 days until our visa came and that’s where I met his twin brother at the Club House. He wanted to ‘time pass’ with me and told all his friends about the ‘Bombay girl he met’. So after work, my husband here – his twin brother came to see me too. We only briefly spoke after which I left for Goa. A few weeks later when I was back in Bombay at my teaching job, the Principal called me and said that there was a phone call for me and ‘personal phone calls weren’t encouraged’. I picked up and realised it was him…he called and said he was in the Navy and was visiting Bombay— so he would like to meet. Now, my friend’s husband worked in the navy, so we did some research and realised that he wasn’t in the navy at all. Basically, he was coming to Bombay to see me and cooking up all kinds of excuses to do that.”

“What made you want to see her?”

“I don’t know how to explain this to you, but I’ll give it a try – since the time I saw her, I knew she was the woman I would marry and I just had to be with her. I could have done anything to be with her. And look where we are today…53 years we’ve been together and I still love her just as much.”
