Awesome twosome

It is not the time or the place, but it is the people whom you are with that matters. Deepa Raparla finds Sam and Vijaya making it more evident.

A GENIAL couple they are, they can almost make anyone wonder for an instant as to who is in the stands of grilling whom. The brainy Sam blending in with his lovely wife, Vijaya, made MetroPlus watch the couple in awe as they unfolded their story of life at the well-known Ilapuram, an ode to a wide-ranging delicacies.

With 25 glorious wedded years in their score, the duo looked youthful as they revealed the days they first met, which conclusively materialized into this sound wedding bond. Sam, an active Rotarian from his college days, is an eminent personality in the Rotary International; being one of the youngest to serve as a District Governor in the Rotary, he finds life as a Rotarian more idyllic.

"The international rapport and the service oriented agenda that the club proffers is something that makes me cling to the club as a proud Rotarian," he confides with a quick smirk. As of the accepted, Sam is a financial service consultant who enjoys cricket, and loves traveling. "We enjoy eating out often and prefer Manor the most," grins Vijaya. Having almost visited all the glorious places on the globe, Sam feels that his trip to Australia was the most overriding experiences of all.

While Vijaya has things to say about her tours and kitty parties, it was Sam who offered an understanding of his better half by exposing her unsurpassed passion towards shopping. He has figured this out through his long journey with Vijaya.

The banter flowed on to a diversity of issues including work, family, films, politics etc; while savouring the delicious Tandoori Roti, Butter nan, Chicken Kadai, Vegetable Kadai, Fried rice etc., which only geared up the affable swing.

It is not the time or the place that matters. It is the people whom you are with is what matters. This makes evident with the couple. Knowing them for that brief span is sure a delight that they have rendered unknowingly.

"Meeting the needs of my family and being an ideal mother to my two darling girls is what pleases me," says Vijaya with a brilliant smile.

The down-to-earth, gorgeous persona of Vijaya tuning to the pro that can reasonably reason out any situation was rather an enjoyable twosome to observe.
