What do your family and friends like most about you?

One thing I hear from them very often is that I am compassionate. I am ready to help them whenever and wherever.

What does it take for a marriage to work?

Love, care and compassion are key essentials, but communicating on every possible thing with your spouse must be a priority and a daily constant, while everything around you is changing. If you do, you have a better chance at being in a good marriage and not fear waking up wondering, who did you marry?

What would be your commitment to your better half?

He will always have a best friend to support him through thick and thin.

If you could change any norms of marriage what would you change?

I would like to see every family celebrate their daughter-in-law as much as their son.

Relationship goals

Travel to every possible place we could.


Love or an arranged marriage
Love, because marrying the one you care for is undeniably better than marrying a total stranger. Also, you do not have a deadline to know each other. You can take your time to know each other before tying the knot.

Ideal groom
It’s quite hard to sum it up in a few words but I would prefer a humble guy full of compassion who sticks with me through thick and thin. And love should always be there, of course.

I would love a destination wedding in the Himalayas, preferably base camp if everything goes right.

Any love song that would live up to the ambience.

Lots of red roses

Wedding attire
Definitely traditional

A taste of every cuisine possible

Honeymoon destination
I always wanted to go to Paris.

A couple of bangles which are gifts from my mum

Simple bridal makeup that would complement my complexion.
