Well, we asked TV actress Manasi Roy about her Platinum Day of Love and here’s how she described it.
I met Rohit through a common friend. I was a model back then and he was an assistant director. We began to meet often and we grew extremely fond of each other. After six wonderful years of dating, we just knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. It didn’t take long after that for us to tie the knot. We’ve been together for more than 15 years and I have to say it’s still as wonderful as ever!
Keeping the spark alive
Like any relationship, ours too has its ups and downs. But I think the secret to keeping our relationship strong and steady is understanding! We both have learned to be thoughtful of each other’s feelings and that is definitely the most unique characteristic of our relationship. It really helps us get through a lot. Besides we’re both working in the same line so it’s easier on us. We are our own worst critics and we’re there for each other too.
Platinum Day of Love
We have had so many memorable moments together but we really had our Platinum Day of Love when we were on one of our family holidays. We were staying with our daughter Kiara at a villa we’d booked in Italy and each day on our trip we were busy rambling across the destination exploring as travellers do. I was super exhausted with all the revelry and one morning as I woke up, what did I see, the table was set with a sumptuous breakfast spread, cooked by none other than my darling husband. Rohit is the kind of guy who never enters the kitchen, period. It’s a department that has been completely under my control that he would never want to put his hands on. Besides Rohit is also generally not romantic in his outlook so this was such a pleasant surprise.
I know it’s just breakfast, but I was floored by the fact that Rohit was so thoughtful and went out of his way to enter the place he dreads the most and give me a super treat and a break in its true sense! In fact, even my daughter was surprised and asked him, “Are you really going to make eggs for me today?” I still remember how we laughed as we watched him prepare the breakfast, especially because we haven’t ever seen him cook before!
But more than anything I realised in that moment what a loving husband and doting father he was. I was reminded of all those things that once made me weak in the knees and it was like falling in love all over again! That incident gave our relationship a whole new perspective; it helped me value Rohit and the special relationship we share. That was definitely our Platinum Day of Love!
