They stay miles apart. Still, their hearts communicate, beating all the distance to live love. This Valentine's Day, we ask couples who are away from each other, how they plan to make the day special for each other.
"I have asked my girlfriend Anushka's roommate to buy my girl her favourite dress. She will gift it on the V-Day morning with a bouquet of roses," says Rohan Bisht, a fighter pilot, who adds, "I have already deposited money in the account of her roommate." Well, Chandigarh-based Ankit Ahuja, an accent trainer at a call centre, is not lucky to have someone to deliver gift to her ladylove.
So, what is he planning? "Swati lives in Tiruchirappalli. After thinking a lot about what to do for her, I finally contacted some people on Orkut from the same city. I took the numbers of local dance teachers from them. I am going to gift her a course in classical dance. She had been wanting to do it for a long time."
Ankita Mahajan, an MNC professional, has devised another innovative way to use Orkut on Valentine's Day. "I have sent scraps to 3,000 people, asking them to send scraps to my boyfriend, wishing him on Valentine's Day and blessing us both. And, I am hopeful that my idea works."
Being together, but in a different way is the mantra for newly wed Tanya Desai, a homemaker from Chandigarh. "My husband works in Dubai. I miss hanging out with him. So, this Valentine's, we’ve planned to hang out together." Well, hang on, isn't her husband away. "We plan to go to our favourite coffee shop at the same time, then watch the latest movie. Of course, we will be in touch with each other on phone. Buying the same books also figure in our plan," quips Tanya.
