He continued with his degree back home and she supported him emotionally, while terribly missing each other, but never giving up on each other. Things had definitely not been easy but it was their love that got them through everything. Letting go is always the easier thing to do but to keep holding on is a feat that only true love can achieve.
As soon as Dr. Kumar was done with his studies, he knew he had to go see Charlotte; he had been away from her way too long. He had to do something about it and he had to do it fast. He sold everything that he owned to buy a bicycle and he decided that he would ride his bicycle to Sweden, no matter how long it took. He soon set off and from Delhi he rode through eight countries, namely, Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Germany, Austria and Denmark.
If you are thinking about how long it must have taken him, it took him exactly four whole months and three weeks before he made it to his destination.
The journey, quite understandably, was anything but easy. He had to go without proper food for weeks and even had to get his ride fixed numerous times but not for one moment did he want to give up and call it quits. He persevered because he knew that seeing the love of his life after all this trouble would be worth it.
When he made it to Gothenburg, he had to deal with government officials, who were also pretty taken aback at a man riding his bicycle straight into their country. This would have been a bit of a scrape but his story even moved the officials. They let him go and he was then united with his wife. Today, they have been married for forty years and it could not have been a happier marriage. They have two children together and Dr. Kumar is very successful today, as the Ambassador of India and an artist.
They are still as much in love as they had been back in 1975. Love makes the world go round, doesn’t it?
If you are reading this article today and have a special someone, I am sure that you are inspired to go tell them how much you love them through a big gesture- let nothing stop you.
