Our love story: Anita and Amit Walia

As we celebrate the Month of Love this February, we asked you to share your love story with the world. Thank you for your overwhelming response. Here are some stories that stood out for us.


Our love story began when we were schoolmates. It was the year 2006 when we first saw each other. We were in class 12th. Although we both had different subjects and sections we had common friends. All of us would hang out together but I had minimal interaction with him.

As time passed by we started talking to each other and became friends. One day after our tuition class he told me to wait for him, I waited for him for about an hour, and then I saw him coming with some chocolates in his hand. That day he proposed his love for me. I was shocked and ran away without giving him a response. 

A few days passed, and I realised that I love him too. We started hanging out together and soon our friends came to know this. One year passed. We all started planning for our further studies and he decided to leave for another city for higher studies. 

Although I was sad, I did not say this to him and supported him in his decision. Two more years passed, I continued to wait for him. He would come to meet me every 3 to 4 months. 

Soon I convinced my parents to send me the same city where he was studying, for my master’s degree. My parents supported me and after three years, we were finally together in the same city. We enjoyed every moment of our life, we loved, we laughed, and we cried, we fought but this was the best time of our life. Together, forever. 

Nine years passed and we decided to tell our parents. His parents agreed wholeheartedly but my parents were not supportive, but I somehow convinced them in between many ups and downs. 

In 2016, we got married and our married life was much more fun. It was like a dream come true. And now we are proud parents of a 2-year-old baby boy and we both love each other more and more with each passing day. 

We are Anita and Amit, and our baby Aarav Walia, and this is our love story.
