The Journey That Started With a Click

It started nine years ago (in the year 2000) from an Internet café in Chennai. Not too many net cafes. Even fewer internet connections at homes. And hardly any one had heard about matrimonial websites. While searching for jobs in www.naukri.com, the girl clicked on the banner ad of www.jeevansathi.com out of curiosity. Little did she know of the life-altering events that were about to happen with that one click. She registered her profile (was free at that time) with no expectation of anyone even giving a second glance as her demands – no dowry, simple marriage and such – were not conventional. But that was a time when online matrimonial ads were also not conventional. Within 24 hours she got a response. It looked like this guy was waiting for her profile. And for her, it was the man of her dreams!

Dot com boomed. Love bloomed. Fibre and copper cables lay silent as they exchanged feelings at speeds ranging from 32kbps to 48kbps. (Broadband policy was not announced then).

Then they met, talked and had tea. Gave some time to think it over. Again they met, walked and talked. And decided to walk the long road ahead together.

A simple marriage ceremony followed, attended only by close family and friends. And they lived happily ever after.

Today, 5th of September, it’s been nine years since thecouple started their journey together. We thank everyone, who we’ve met so far and who we will meet in future, for this wonderful journey.

Wishing ourselves a happy anniversary…
