Is this love?

Isn’t it the most wonderful feeling when your life partner resonates a particular interest or liking just because you like something?

Last night at dinner, my wife on seeing a photo of Lionel Messi remarks, “He plays for Argentina, no? And is one of the best football players in the world today”. I kept looking at her while searching for my jaw on the floor. She and football? But just because I am supporting Argentina at this world cup, she made an effort to get herself updated on the team and its leading players. And what more, she wants to buy me an Argentina team jersey!!! πŸ˜€

Likewise, ask her about the Indian cricket team, its composition, players, their strengths, fielding positions, batting lineup etc – she’ll be with you to the last argument and final ball.

And she can tell which model of Audi (the A4 or A8 or S6) is better than the one we own and why and that all other cars look lousy in front of our car except the Porsche Boxster and 911 Carrera, which she loves more than the Audi any day!

And just because I am so passionate about a particular Mr. Roger Federer, she pasted a newspaper cutting of him after winning the 2009 Wimbledon title on my cupboard wall.

While I wait an hour in the car watching Ibrahim when she visits the hair saloon, she watches Ibrahim for me till a football match ends.

So if I know colors like mauve, magenta, olive green, light onion-pink, off-white but not beige or cream or ‘that’ shade of white, she knows its blue, blue and more blue for me.

And if I know what shade of lipstick goes with what shade of lip gloss, eye shadow, eye liner and blush, she knows that I am trying to understand the impossible!

So if she thinks having more than one or two perfumes is not important, she goes and gets that cologne I have been eyeing for weeks to add to my half dozen collection.

And if I think having more than one or two footwear or handbag in not important, I go and get her more bags and footwear she’s been eyeing for a while to add to her collection.

When two completely different people come together, we need more than just a marriage certificate to make things work, to make something out of life. And when both of them work towards that goal, that to me is true companionship.

That to me is true love. Happy 25th dear.

Edited to add: No, its not her birthday today. Just one of the many days we celebrate together. Do I need an occasion to convey my feelings? πŸ™‚

      • Yes it is love and no it is not her bday today πŸ™‚

        And just coz of u guys, I now had to add a disclaimer at the end of the post! πŸ˜€

        • Masood, you are quite lucky; in fact both of you as partnership means give and take.
          It’s quite rare for women to show interest in Sports and she did it just for you; and I can also see your love for her in blog.
          You guys have done it, you will have a great time all along; god bless.

          • Yes it is. Rarely do women show equal or more interest in sports. So having a life partner who does that really keeps me on my feet as well.

            Thanks a lot, Arif bhai.

  1. its Iram’s bday today? hope u are not in office then.. loads of love and wishes to the pretty young lady.. and this is a lovely bday post!

    • Hello Iram,

      u r one of very few luckiest women who got such type of letter/blogpost from husband πŸ™‚

      Its indeed one of best feelings i have read from a male… πŸ™‚ mostly we saw female writing abt their husband…
      You have explained very well feeling of togetherness and living for each other and making perfect life…


  2. now i am looking for my Jaw!! how can u dish out such lovely posts.. these are our domian πŸ˜‰
    but yes this is love, seeing the joy in the eyes of other..

  3. Good one. Well explained..
    Yes. This is love, when you don’t have to ask for anything but still you get everything as you want.

      • Yeah for some reason, I have been keeping myself away from blogging/social networking. Kind a mental block!! confused… Yes, all settled in Mumbai but my family is yet to come. Got a chance to meet Ibbu in my sisters wedding also took a nice picture of him, will send that to you. He looked amazing and was enjoying playing in the lawns.
        Thanks. Take care. πŸ™‚

        • Yes, I heard that he really enjoyed himself at the wedding. Unfortunately I could not attend. Inshallah maybe I will make it to your wedding! πŸ˜‰

  4. I guess this is the best post by you uptil now, nothing can beat the content of this post. Its simply beautiful the way u have conceptualised the coming together of two different ppl to form the perfect couple.

    • Thanks Kaddy. Love makes you do some exceptional things. Even I did not know I had it in me to do a post like this. But here it is πŸ™‚

    • LOL @ mush ka rush!!!! πŸ˜€

      Well I did mention that I am trying to understand the impossible. Does not mean I have understood it yet πŸ˜‰

  5. Yes, this is love !!! So touching, Masood. God bless this wonderful couple, so much in love. πŸ™‚

    So, whats the occasion – Whats that happy 25th ?????

    • Thanks Uma πŸ™‚

      Well, no real occasion. Just that the number 25 is important in our relationship. So we never cease to find excuses to celebrate it πŸ˜€

    • Hey, have been meaning to ask, you saw that epic match bet isner & mahut?? the 11 hour long match?? And federer lost, yar 😦 😦

      • Well I didn’t get to see the whole match but I did see a bit of the final set which went on for 7 hrs. It was unreal.

        And yes, Federer lost. I was so so so disappointed last night. It was like someone had stolen the living daylights out of me. I was almost crying. I don’t think its fair. A great champion like him does not need to start going down so early. Another 2 more years (till he turns 30) atleast on top. He deserves that.

        Wimbledon finals without Federer is unthinkable. I am not going to watch any more Wimbledon matches till he is back !!!! 😦

  6. Wow..just liked this post…any day is just an execuse to celebrate πŸ˜€ Hey you guys own an Audi ??? That’s my most favorite(current) car πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
