May it be weddings, anniversaries or friends reunion, Goa is always a spot for party goers to enjoy their vacation time together. Along with exciting places to visit, Goa has also got top photographers to capture your memories from the Goa trip. Check out this heart warming love story of Keval and Ekta Mehta who recently visited Goa and captured their Goa trip through Lokaso Photoshoot.
Similar to the story of Thanushree and Srivatsa, here’s yet another Indian love story that went through the struggles caused due to the rigid Indian caste system.
Here’s how it began…
Keval and Ekta came from a similar professional background and their workplace became a memorable point to begin a new bond. While the two shared common interests and preferences, Keval couldn’t resist accepting the fact that Ekta would indeed be a perfect match for him.
One fine evening, accumulating all the guts required, Keval went straight up to his crush and asked her out. Ekta being a daughter from a strict orthodox family, couldn’t accept the proposal right away. Similar to other Indian girls, Ekta very well knew that loving someone outside their caste could create troubles and mess up every happiness she desired. Hence, a ‘yes’ was out of question.
When asked how long it took you to say yes, she said, “It took me around a month to accept Keval’s proposal. For women especially, it becomes difficult to convince their parents. However, I thought I should give it a try, because Keval has always been a man nobody could ever reject.”
Every Relationship Has its Own Struggles!
Ekta says, “We struggled for one and a half years to convince our parents, but they didn’t approve at all. They left it up to me to make my own decision. Keval’s family was ready, they had no problem. But for a successful wedding both sides of our families need to be happy. This happiness of togetherness and joyful celebrations wasn’t something we experienced for our wedding. However, I took my decision to have a court marriage.” The two soon after lived their life together, although the little caring love received from Ekta’s parents was still missing.
Finally, around three years later, Ekta’s parents called her up to make things right. They were finally reunited. Keeping behind all the grievances, the two are now happily enjoying their married life.”
With all the previous conflicts resolved, celebrating their 3rd anniversary in a romantic way was mandatory. There couldn’t be a better place than Goa – An ideal destination for couples. Most of us will agree that visiting Goa individually is a totally different experience as compared to being a couple.
Every tourist visiting Goa will never miss a chance to praise this land! Ekta says, “We love the Night atmosphere. While the day just goes on and on, night parties seem never-ending. During the tourist season, it’s almost as if Goa never sleeps.”
Ekta and Keval’s first Lokaso photoshoot experience was outstanding!
“I booked Lokaso Photoshoot, as a surprise for Keval. Since we both are camera conscious and couldn’t really experience the trending mood of pre-wedding photoshoots that couples have these days, I thought it would be a good experience. But of course, Keval took it as a shock 😳, since he never expected to have a professional couple photoshoot. But once he got comfortable with the efforts put in by the photographers, he felt grateful that he could experience something like this with me🥰”
A Message for every Indian!
“If you are in love with the correct person, but in a dilemma to choose between family or Love, take your time and ask yourself what you truly want. It would be Injustice if we were spilt apart and had to marry somebody our parents chose. We wouldn’t be able to share the same happiness and love required in a marriage to be successful. Have faith in your destiny and the person you’re marrying (totally out of personal experience 😉)” Ekta Mehta
And their journey continues with infinite memories!!!
“The photographer from team Lokaso entertained us at all times and helped us bring smiling faces rather than the nervous look. We loved the experience. Hence we recommend Lokaso to all those who need a calm photoshoot in Goa.”
