    Somewhere, Someday,
    If you speak of me,
    Think,
    When I bittered bye,
    I not only gave up you to yourself,
    I gave up my words too!

    When life is eating us out, we become vulnerable to being hard, bad, angry, rude to handle it and lose ourselves.

    Act of winning is crossing hurdles with keeping goodness of oneself intact throughout.

    And letting struggles make one kind, humble not angry, numb, hard or closed.

    PART 2
    #SAK_ASKS ��

    6. Who takes the first step to settle arguments. And what do you actually do to settle arguments? 

    Arushi: I think whenever there's an argument, he sits silent for some time but I don't have any patience, therefore I constantly try to make him talk. When he's ready to talk, both of us discuss our ends of the conversation, because that's obviously the best thing to do and by the next day, it's all well.

    •••

    Kenny: She does. Always. I mean I am kinda scared of her (she never knew, and won't believe it either). So every time we have some disputes three things happen. 1. We both go silent, like not a word to say. 2. She starts asking questions to make me comfortable again and solve the problem at the same time, though I stay quiet - my lips totally zipped. And 3. She starts making fun around and finally makes me smile & talk again. In short she does all the boyfriend kinda stuff in our every fight. And I still have to figure out how to solve problems with her. I guess we've rarely argued on anything - only about 5 or 6 times in 2 years so yeah I never got the chance to improve at that. Haha!

    ~•~•~•~•

    7. Where do you see both of you in the next five years?

    Arushi: In the next five years, we won't have much time to talk. I'd be in the final year of my MBBS and as for him, I can't really say. He can be anywhere. He's a free bird and I really don't know how far he's going to fly. All I can say is that I hope as hell, we'll be together. We'll fight the rest.

    •••

    Kenny: I guess I see us loving and supporting each other, building ourselves in every possible aspect of life. As she will be still in her final year of MBBS within next 5 years, we'll be making US stronger than ever, by then. Wishing for the best future I am surely gonna make us the best version of Ken and Arushi.

    ~•~•~•~

    8. Being influencers on social media give one relationship advise that you think is most crucial?

    Arushi: First of all, I'm not really sure if the word 'influencer' suits me. But I can definitely give some advice. I believe that one doesn't always have to be madly in love. There will be days when we'll love more and days when it'll be a bit less. Some people tend to break up when it doesn't feel the same as it did in the start. If you really want to make it last, just trust the love you had when you met your person. You still love them, it's just time and other factors that make it hard. You need to learn to fight them and find the same passion again. Don't just give up. Once you trust and have faith in your love, you'll get that phase back in no time, because this time, you'll actually fight for it. Being birthed from the internet and having to survive on it, we've had our share of lows but it's still worth it everyday because I know I love him just the way I did when we first met.

    •••

    Kenny: Trust is must for everyone of us. To love each other, you must believe in each other. And a bonus advice, never let the past ruin your present.

    ~•~•~•~•

    9. A fictional or real couple or love story that has been an inspiration and helped you hold onto it? 

    Arushi: My favourite couple is definitely Auditya Venkatesh (@audiphotography) and Harleen Singh (@wander_leen). They have a similar '2 states' story as us. Kenny and I have differences in our culture, religion, age and profession but like them, we hope to be successful in our careers and meet each other's families with our heads held high!

    •••

    Kenny: None as per my knowledge because I always believe in being an example for others, so that's what we've done here even, I guess.

    ~•~•~•~•

    10. Last one birthday wishes for my cup of poetry ie, my mirakee account? 

    Arushi: First of all a very very happy birthday to this wonderful account. I'll be honest, I haven't read your work religiously but I have read a few and they're fantastic. You're an amazing writer and I think on a platform like this, one needs to be something beyond that. (which you obviously are) You're imagination is crazy! Kudos for thinking out of the box and thank you for conducting this awesome interview and acknowledging ours' and others' sweet little love stories. Once again, congratulations and stay blessed!

    •••

    Kenny: Yey! Happy birthday to you. You're such a great person spreading so much love in this way. May God bless you abundantly and give you the best year ahead (and many more best years ahead). Thank you.

    With this I wind up my day.
    Hope you all learnt and enjoyed.
    Ciao!

    •_____________________•

    Ciao, Everyone!
    I'm Hira, your host for the day! ��

    With no delay, I welcome you all to the Mirakee auditorium.
    Let's start.

    ��

    PART 1
    All the parts can be found at #sak_asks ��

    1. What was your first impression of each other ie what came across your mind when you first came across him/ her ?

    Arushi: With a name like 'Kenny Christian' and a bio like 'the crossfire band' and an Instagram page with only English poetries, chats with only English language, you wouldn't really think that the person is Indian. Stupid, I know but I really thought that. We obviously knew each other through mirakee and conversed a bit on Instagram. I realised he was an Indian when he wrote 'gajjab' while texting. That moment was such a slap on my face and I swear to God, I looked at his bio again, checked his birthdate (in his bio) and counted our age difference and thought "okay! I can be in a relationship with this guy." That was just a momentary silly mild crush thing but somehow it really ended up happening. To sum it up, when I first came across him, to me he was someone I could've never had. He was just too good for me, too cool for me. He was honestly perfect, literally the man of my dreams.

    •••

    Kenny: The first thought I had when I met her (of course, online) was, " how could it be possible - a girl like her!?" because she was so adorable, so beautiful, so kind and really loving and the most amazing thing was how talented she was in every possible aspect of art. She writes (even better than me, trust me), she draws (where I can't even draw a perfect line), she sings, sculpts, cooks and even bakes. So I was amazed just getting to know her in the first place.

    ~•~•~•~

    2. That one moment or incident that made you realise that you were in love or he / she is the one ?

    Arushi: It was a beautifully coloured sky that day. I had just given a test and was buying some stationary for my project. He had proposed to me a few days ago, but I hadn't really fallen for him as madly as he had. I don't know how the conversation lead to that but I do remember saying that I was starting to fall for him too and he'd have to support me in my studies as they would continue to be my priority. I remember the feeling, the vibes and the sky. It really was a beautiful day. With him, it's still a beautiful day, everyday.

    •••

    Kenny: Yeah, it's a long story. Though I can put it in short as this : We stayed awake for whole nights - everyday in those days. And one day, just the same way, we were on call and I read a news on Google about Chester Bennington's suicide - the lead singer of Linkin Park. I started crying like a baby at that point because I was so inspired by his life and the way he sung. It felt like the end of an era. As she heard me crying on the phone, trying and failing to calm me, she started crying too. I felt something in that very moment which I had never felt before, a rush to hold her and hug her, never letting her go, never making her cry again and I knew I was in love with her, so I told her right away, on call and she was a bit shocked. That's how I came to know about my feelings for her.

    ~•~•~•~

    3. One most memorable moment of your two years journey of togetherness? 

    Arushi: Hands down, it has got to be the days when we ACTUALLY were together. It's been two years and we've only been with each other for five days. Those five days will always be the best, until we meet next. But if I really have to pick the most memorable moment, it's when we sat at the Sukhna lake in Chandigarh, and just talked. I wrote a poem (tanka) after he left and I think it explains our five-day-meet best.
    "We sang our hearts like
    Children of the wild, no care
    Of world, no fear of
    being denied, We loved like we'd
    loved for the very first time."
    This madness was the most memorable part!

    •••

    Kenny: The time we had in Chandigarh, together! I was going to meet her for the first time and was nervous like hell. Waiting for her call, I started clicking selfies to make sure I looked good and she saw me through the window of the cafe where we were supposed to meet. She called and told me that she was waiting inside and I saw her from the door.
    That was the perfect moment. I had waited a year, prayed for that very moment and it was there. She was there in front of me.

    ~•~•~•~

    4. A crazy yet most favourite characteristic of your partner?

    Arushi: The most crazy thing he does is talk! When he talks, there's no stopping him. He wouldn't care about my opinions/arguments/discussion/response while he's talking. All he wants is to finish his end of the story. It actually gets really funny at times when I interfere while he talks. He gets a bit irritated but then remembers that it's me on the other end of the call and just starts laughing. It's irritating and adorable at the same time!

    •••

    Kenny: She is so foody, likes to eat such great cuisines and knows how to make them. What else would a guy like me look for when falling for a girl.

    ~•~•~•~

    5 . Was there a very difficult period in your relationship. If yes how did you overcome that?

    Arushi: The most difficult period was definitely when Kenny's life was completely upside down. All problems came together. He couldn't think straight or decide the right course of action. I felt more like his mother than his girlfriend. Even though I missed him and us, I knew that the relationship had to be the last priority for the both of us. At that moment, the only thing both of us tried was to make him happy because without his heart being present, he couldn't give his soul to anything. I remember constantly trying to get him to talk. He would just go numb. It was definitely hard but I think time and love healed him. Now, I'm just glad to have both his heart and soul with me.

    •••

    Kenny: Yes, there was, back in 2017's October. I was going through pretty tough times. I was paranoid, insomniac, mostly depressed and as I was going through such shit, it was obvious that our relationship just like every segment of my life was affected by it and Arushi took great care of mine, without any expectations of me being there for her or loving her back, she took care of me like I was her baby. She cried with me, stayed awake for whole nights just to make me feel stronger, kept me going and most importantly Arushi never lost faith in me. She knew me from my core to skin. And I guess that's the most important in any relationship.
