Strange, but they connected over a matrimonial website. Their families would hate it if they called it a dating site, but neither of them were using it for that purpose. Aditi was pushed by her family & Prasad signed up to understand how it works. To quickly figure out the features, he filtered profiles that were Online. Aditi probably had nothing better to do and happened to be Online at the time. From that moment, their relationship transitioned from the website to phone within 24 hours - via Facebook, gTalk, SMS. They met in the next 72 hours - all alone - and chirped all evening. They both wanted to give time understanding each other and making sure they got what they were looking for: bheja and kaleja (brains & heart). Prasad did all his due diligence 1-1 while Aditi's side ran some spooky background checks.
For Prasad, passing on the lead to his parents was the most difficult part. If he could ever manage a matrimonial website, he would have separate logins for parents and candidates where qualified leads can be transferred to parents without the need of an awkward conversation. But scrum style, he told his parents in a 5 minute stand-up meeting on Dusserah. The only enquiries his parents made were: where she lives & what she does - then congratulated him. Aditi had shared Prasad's profile with her beloved mama, and then went on to tell her mother. A few days later, the parents met and discussed probable dates - all at jet speed. All in all, the couple escaped all the awkwardness & discomfort of an arranged marriage, and are grateful to their families for that.
As they look back now, time seems to have flown away and brought them closer to being together - forever!
