Tina Dabi, topped UPSC exam last year. Athar Aamir-ul-Shafi Khan came second. And.. who would know the second would fall for the first and the first would fall back! That’s what happened between Tina and Athar! It took some time. But they are together now and let us tell you; they are super cute!
In an interview to TOI, Tina Dabi said some beautiful things that made us think love is beyond all ranks!
1. Love, at first sight, is undoubtedly real!
“We met in the morning, and by evening Aamir was at my door. Uske liye pehle nazar mein pyaar ho gaya (For him, it was love at first sight). “
2. Love takes time!
“I thank Aamir every day for his perseverance. He is a wonderful person.”
3. Society can be disturbing for people in love!
“We are in love and very happy. But I must admit that I get very disturbed when I read stuff about us. We have stopped googling our names and reading news about ourselves. I think it is a small price to pay for being in the public eye.”
4. Love overcomes all odds, and the result is happy!
“As any freethinking independent woman, I am entitled to certain choices. I am very happy with my choice and so is Aamir. Our parents are happy too.”
5. People will continue to criticize!
“But there will always be those elements, that small minority who will always pass negative comments about dating someone from another religion. It is just that 5%.”
6. But most of us love Happy Endings! 🙂
“The majority are very happy . You would have seen on my Facebook timeline that most of the comments are encouraging. In fact, I am overwhelmed by the support and congratulatory messages.”
We congratulate Tina and Athar for their togetherness and wish them all the best for the future!
