TINA (there is no alternative) for Benil


AMICABLE, INTERESTING, fun-loving and energetic, Benil Daniel and Tina were the gorgeous couple that made the time fly by at the Ilapuram Bar and Restaurant with their most appealing disposition the other day. Marriage between them is sure a wondrous thing that had underrated all geographical borders, including many other barriers. A marvellous achievement.

Ain't it? Benil being brought up in Vijayawada and Tina, who had come all the way from Kuwait, blended in as a winning duo in the city of victory. Merlyn, their little angel, though just a year-and-a-half old was adding her own share of pleasure to the evening with her radiant smile and cute Malayali tongue. Benil, though loquacious on any topic, narrates best of his interests and his passion for travelling, dogs and fish. Basically from Kottayam in God's own country, he finds Vijayawada as his real home. The heat of Vijayawada in summer is surely on the extreme side of it, confesses Tina with a smile. Tina is now set to become a Vijayawadaite by learning the language too. Just hitting the roads in their cool Sienna whenever the mood strikes them is what the family adores.

Active members of the Round Table India, Benil and Tina are fond of making new friends. Savouring Chicken wings, Vegetable Pakodas, Apollo fish and Chatapata papads etc., the couple explained their fantasies at length. Benil was at home describing his pets -- dogs of various pedigrees, a huge aquarium with wild fish like Piranhas and sharks, turtles and the memories of his holiday trips to Goa, Kerala, Bombay and Delhi. His face took on a special glow as he spoke of his daughter Merlyn and her fancy for computers, mobile phones and music.

A contrast to the conservative and protective Benil, Tina is fun-loving, and enjoys dancing besides slipping away to their farm in Nuzvid on weekends to spend quality time in the serenity of the place. A hard day doesn't seem as much to Benil who coolly enjoys a tipple or two towards the end of it in his personal bar.

Tina, an expectant mother, keeps herself busy with Merlyn who can defuse any tension with her infectious smile. So well matched, in appearance as well attitude, Benil and Tina are indeed made for each other.
