Indore: Love is an undying feeling, but it needs to be nurtured with flowers, chocolates and emotions on regular basis. Valentine’s week is an opportunity for people to express their love and rekindle romance in their marriages. The city of food lovers is also the city of lovers, where people celebrate love with romance, food and treats every day.
With variety of colours in roses, people are celebrating ‘Rose Day’ and kick-starting romance in their lives with flowers and food.
Rekindling romance with memories
Having found their love despite religious differences, Reshma and Amit Pandey are planning to surprise each other with flowers. Their romance has bloomed over their admiration and expression for years, but lately, they have been busy with their work.
“Until five years back, I would send flowers randomly to her,” Amit said. He would pick out the best flowers in variables colours to express his love.
“I always tried to innovate with the flowers, like I would pick out liliums and bird of paradise to flatter her,” Amit said. Taking the opportunity of Rose Day, he will be finding the best blend of flowers for her. Talking about her feelings, Reshma said, “I guess these little gestures make the relationship special and rejuvenate romance in a love marriage.” She finds different ways to please her husband. “I take him out for dates,” she added.
Equal partnership in marriage with colourful roles
Red roses represent love of a kind that mostly travels in couples, but Jaisinghanis feels that marriage requires more colours than red. Sharing their martial secrets, businessman Ankur Jaisinghani said, “Marriage is an equal partnership where a person is a friend, parent, lover and child for each other.”
Having found her spouse through an arranged marriage, Ankur fell for Manvi soon after knowing her. “She has a loving heart, which is aptly represented by flowers,” he said.
Planning a flower treat for his beautiful wife, Ankur said, “I am secretly taking a bouquet of colourful roses for her, as she plays various colourful roles in my life.”
Talking about her feelings, homemaker Manvi Jaisinghani said, “I got married when I was young, but I have been very lucky.” She explained that her husband pampers her and loves her, as she had wished. “Sometimes, I feel like I am dreaming, as he is my dream boy,” she added.
Honeymooning during Valentine’s week
Planning their Valentine’s week with romance, newly-wed homemaker Ranu and businessman Jitendra Saluja are starting their honeymoon from Rose Day. Sharing his plans, Jitendra said, “I have always been alone during Valentine’s week.” He had friends whom he shared the day with.
“I normally shared yellow flowers with friends, but this time, I have found my better half and it could not be better,” Jitendra said. He found his wife a couple of months after Valentine’s week last year.
Planning the week to be special for her, Jitendra is taking her to Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket. Sharing her feelings, Ranu said, “I am thrilled to have found someone so special and this year, every second I feel surrounded by flowers because of his love.”
