How We Met
We met four years ago at my sisters 30th birthday party in Manhattan. We actually have known of each other for years before the party because our siblings went to medical school together. When I went to hang out at my sister’s dorm, Puja’s brother would be there and we got along really well. Basically, I knew Puja existed but it wasn’t until that February night in 2013 that I really met her. We talked the whole night and danced the night away. At the end of the night, I passed my phone to Puja and asked her to put her number into the phone. A few days later, I texted her and the rest was history.
how they asked
My fiance, a middle school teacher, and I were dating for 4 years. When it came time to propose to her, I wanted it to be perfect. After planning every meticulous detail for months, on June 24 I mustered up the courage to finally do it- complete with all the bells and whistles including a junior high school, Bruno Mars/ Magic! music video, a school bus, and rooftop party. My fiance is extremely passionate about her profession and me being a training physician, I decided to use the theme of an Apple to connect our two worlds which is basis of the poem I used to propose to her in the video. It is the same poem I asked her out with 4 years ago. We wanted to share this magical day with everyone else so I am sending/sharing you this video.
