“We met each other for the first time at a yoga class. I remember seeing her and her friend at the back. They were the best in the class but they got into trouble for messing around and giggling. I was just chatting with her when I found out she had a gluten allergy. So at the next class, I showed up with gluten-free cupcakes, and managed to get her number.

This one time, a few of us from the class were going to a nearby farmer’s market, when she accidentally smashed her head really hard. But instead of being embarrassed, she just laughed it off. I thought that was really cute – I think that was the moment I began falling for her.

After that, I never ended up going back to the class, but we did manage to bump into each other a few times. So one time, I asked her if she wanted to hang out and watch some football at my place. She showed up in her pajamas because she didn’t think it was a date; which it was!

We had a lot of similar interests – we loved the same junk food like nachos and burgers. But we were opposites in many ways too. I think we balanced each other off really well. And over time, we began dating and became inseparable. We even went on a small getaway to Goa.

There, we ended up falling asleep on the beach and got extremely tan. That’s how everyone figured out we were dating – our sunburn gave it away! Eventually we moved in together. We travelled to so many places – every time was an adventure. We explored till we got lost, ate at local spots, went trekking – we did it all.

I knew she was the one, so it was time to make the grand gesture. We were visiting Toronto, and I was cooking for a few friends when some hot oil fell on my foot and I got a huge boil! Which was really bad timing since I planned to propose to her the next day when we were in Chicago. So, I stuck my injured foot into a shoe and got the plan into motion.

I told her that we were heading to a friend’s party. Once we got there, I ran up first to make sure everything was in place, I had my 3-year-old nephew hold up a sign that read, ‘Will you marry me?’ My foot was throbbing, so when she entered I ‘almost’ went down on one knee and proposed. She was really awkward and surprised, but she said, ‘Yes!

We did a pop up surprise wedding in Las Vegas and a second wedding in Sri Lanka. Being married hasn’t changed a thing though – for us, it’s still about having fun & we keep each other on our toes! And when Bodhi came into our lives, everything just got so much better. For us, our family and each other will always come first – we’ll travel, we’ll laugh, we’ll love. We’ll make this good thing last forever.”

“Somewhere along the way, I began to share public stories in addition to photographing them. And alongside their feelings, I'd include moral and real stories from their lives.” Taken together, these feelings and captions became the subject of a dynamic blog. TheNimshi now just launched for people who connect with us just like on social media, and provides a worldwide audience with daily glimpses into the lives of strangers on the streets of individual country or it maybe from village.
