Brushing aside teething troubles


MARRIAGES ARE made in heaven, but one can make this heaven in a marriage. And that's precisely what Shekhar and Teja believe in. Presenting a pleasurable evening with their happy-go-lucky disposition, the couple painted the traditional ambience set at Sweet Magic- The Mithai shop.

A dynamic couple, who believe in sharing and giving each other space to pursue their own interests, they can easily be classified as one of the contemporary couples of the millennium.

Dr.Shekar and Dr.Teja of Srita dental hospital are one of the leading dentists in town.

While Shekhar is the first doctor in his family, Teja hails from a family of doctors in Jagayyapet. Married for the past 5 years, this couple knew each other since their college days. Teja remembers Shekhar as a studious postgraduate when she was a fresher at Savita Dental College at Chennai. Little did she know then, that this senior who laughed at her when she was ragged was later to share her life in all its beauty.

The old golden hindi melodies like `meri soni' , `dream girl' played in the background of the cinematic mood of the restaurant added spice to their memories. Both of them nostalgically recall their love for Madras, where they spent the best part of their life-college days.

Knowing that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, Teja spends Sundays and other holidays trying out different recipes of chicken-yes, Shekhar has a weakness for chicken. Helping themelves to the sumptuous dinner of Chicken soup, Chicken 65, Chicken, Fried rice etc., served in the ethnic copperwares at the restaurant, Shekhar says, "She makes excellent Biryani and desserts."

Lazing around doing almost nothing, watching a hit movie in their home theatre, going to Hyderabad or Chennai to meet old friends, is their way of spending the holidays. Talking about holidays they admit that they enjoy going abroad whenever they can, they fondly share the experiences of their trip to Europe. Of course these two minds think as one, as according to both of them, the ultimate romantic holiday destination is Venice.

"A gondola ride with an engrossing performance by an accompanying band of musicians is a wonderful experience," says Teja cherishing the past memories. Australia is the next haunt, which this travel zest couple hope to explore in the near future.

Work while you work and play while you play. This rule is followed to a T. Shekhar, busy in his practice as a maxillo facial surgeon has many international publications to his credit in his line of work.

Teja is content with her practice as of now, as she feels it gives her all the time needed to spend with their one and half-year-old son, Harshat. This relation on their part puts into light their wonderful, caring, supporting personalities, which form the foundation of any great family.
