In the era of broken hearts and incomplete tales, there are yet some stories which leave all out us spell-bound by its beauty and serenity. Where adults often fail to accept each other and their flaws, there are some stories which make us fall in love with the love again. The truth and the acceptance of your partner is something which holds you forever and entangles you together beyond the end called death.
Sundeep and Paulomi are two imperfects who have created an all-new definition of perfection. These two met through mutual friends in college and fell in love with each other and married in 2014. Paulomi lost her hand in an accident which left her to lead her life with the prosthetics and life-long scars. Where one fails to love themselves again, Sundeep fell in love with her innocence by heart. Love is that cocoon which needs to be synthesized by trust, care and understanding which only then flies to great heights.
Sundeep and Paulomi’s story had been illustrated beautifully by Humans of Bombay
“I knew she’d somehow lost her hand, but I didn’t think it mattered enough to ask her.”
Their love simmered slowly, starting out as beautiful friendship.
“We spent a lot of time together and we both developed a habit of not going to bed without a phone call… even if it was just to ask if the other had reached home.”
Over time, it turned into something magical you only read about in books.
“I’ve seen her at her most vulnerable — without her prosthetics, with all her scars that she used to try and hide and I still believe she’s the most complete and put together person I’ve met.”
Sundeep’s affection and commitment to Paulami turned us into mush.
“I always thought, this girl deserves the world’ and it was my privilege to do my little bit in helping her get there. Even if we weren’t sitting next to each other at a restaurant, I always asked the waiter to serve me her food first, so I could cut up the pieces she would have struggled with.”
His belief in her soared our spirits.
“The universe may have taken her arm, but I’ve seen her wings…and I can’t wait to watch her fly.”
Nothing could be more heart touching than the union of two souls, coming together by leaving hatred, insecurity, and jealousy far behind. Your disabilities can never be a hurdle of your path when your love stands at your back to hold you when you fall. Marriage is not about being a perfect couple but sharing a perfect love.
“The way I see it — we all have our missing pieces. For some of us it’s emotional, while for others it’s physical. The whole point is to find the person that fills up the pieces and she makes me whole.
