“I felt an instant connection with her. She seemed simple and soft spoken, and that was an attractive trait for me”.

“I liked the fact that he was open and honest”.

Shilpa Kashyap and Danish Mahajan met at an NGO in Delhi. The connected was instant. Their individual disabilities were no barrier for love to find its way. His vision impairment and her Retinitis Pigmentosa were never a cause of concern. The moment that made them realize they wanted to be together? “I was drawn to her personality and also the fact that she was aware of the disability field, which meant our mindset would be the same”, says Danish. A reputed personality in the Disability Rights Movement, Danish was sure to get married sooner rather than later. “I never believed in having a long courtship to know the person. We have the rest of our lives for that!” opined Danish. Soon, their families met. Their disabilities were never came in the way of their blossoming romance, but would soon pose a challenge in ensuring their long-term togetherness. Questions were being asked about their choice of life partner – How will you manage with someone who is blind? Are you aware of the high risk of Retinitis Pigmentosa being transferred to your future child? This was a tough period. However, their belief and conviction did not let them down. Danish says, “Understanding is the biggest challenge and that is why I wanted to marry someone in the disability field. She had that and I could feel that from her. That made me sure that she is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with”. Shilpa too, used her conviction to turn doubters into believers. Believers of love. This belief soon turned to victory. A date was fixed, and so was the match. Now happily married and living in Pathankot, their levels of understanding have only gone up. “For people with disability, family support is so important. When I was moving, my family was concerned. But Danish’s family is very loving and supportive. And even he has become more understanding when I share personal matters with him.” says Shilpa. As Danish rightly puts it, “Love is not what you see. It’s what you feel”. They saw each other, not the disability – proving that #LoveSabkeLiye same hain – no matter what.
