LOVE IS ETERNAL AND HAS NO BOUNDARIES. IT DOES NOT LOOK AT THE EXTERNAL BEAUTY. THIS IS THE STORY OF TRUE LOVE WHEREIN THE BOY GOT MARRIED TO HIS TEENAGE CRUSH AFTER SHE MET WITH A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AND HER ENTIRE FACE GOT DISFIGURED PERMANENTLY…
Most of the love stories that we hear begin right from a young age. After attaining puberty, the attraction towards the opposite sex grows more and that turns into infatuation that many times we mistake as our first love. The definition of love is very broad and at a young age, we hardly understand. But, as we grow up we realize what true love is and this is a story about a person who married his teenage crush despite the accident which resulted in her losing her beauty forever.
At the age of 17, Jayprakash fell in love with his teenage crush Sunitha. “In the year 2004, I was 17 when I saw a new girl walk past my classroom. I couldn’t stop staring. I had never seen anyone like her. Over time, we became friends but my heart sulked every time I saw her with someone else. Soon, I stopped talking to her even though she had no idea why. After the exams, she filled in my slam book saying she wanted to talk, but it never happened. I got into college but never met another soul like her. She moved to Bangalore,” says Jayprakash.
It looked like the story ended there. In the year 2007, on his birthday, Jayprakash got a call from an unknown number. ““The voice introduced herself as Sunitha. My heart started beating like the 17-year-old boy. The call lasted only two minutes but for me, it was like an eternity. We stayed in touch occasionally, but soon got busy with our lives,” he narrated.
Then the time passed and in the month of November 2011, Jayprakash suddenly got the call from a mutual friend saying Sunitha met with an accident and she is in Coimbatore and he asked if I wanted to meet her. “I thought it would be something minor, so I called her two days later. I did not recognize the voice that answered. When I went to visit, I saw a person with no hair, a disfigured face, no nose, no mouth and no teeth, walking like a 90-year-old. I was stunned. I broke down. That moment, I realized that I love her. Later that night, I sent her a text. I am the only person who can take care of you. I love you. Let’s get married,” he said adding that “She called and I proposed again. She laughed but she didn’t say no. Initially, my mother was shocked but my dad backed me, and eventually, they both came around.”
According to Jayprakash in 2012 he shifted to Bangalore to be with Sunitha as he loved her deep inside and from the bottom of his heart. “I stayed with her during all her surgeries and would watch her giggle as she comes back to the senses following the effects of her anesthesia used to get over. “I started planning mine further with her. I have already decided to shift to Bangalore to be with her and this experience of mine taught me to be a more responsible person,” says Jayprakash.
In the month of January 2014, Jayprakash reached Bangalore. “It was around 1 AM, I was highly exhausted. I saw her standing on the terrace with three roses in her hands. She proposed to me and I said YES, and we got engaged on the same day,” says Jayprakash
The challenges for both of them were not yet over, and although the preparations for the marriage began the other problems started raising its head in the middle. “There were many problems. Because of our financial situation, on the morning of our reception, I was in shorts sweeping the place. There were people who questioned why we needed a wedding now. They even asked her not to have babies because they’d have her face. People still look at her with pity and think I did a big thing by marrying her. The reality is, I married the love of my life and my life changed for the better. Today, we have two kids and wonderful mornings to wake up together,” narrated Jayprakash.
Jayprakash is happily married to his teenage crush who became the love of his life. Love isn’t about a face or imposed conditions or external beauty. It is the connection of souls. It feels right. All I know is that I love her to the moon and back, infinity and beyond, forever,” says Jayprakash.
