Remember how Shahjahan proved his eternal love for Mumtaz? Taj Mahal, the monument which he erected as a token of love for her, became the epitome of love that still makes us wonder if eternal love can exist or is it just a myth.
Never mind, if the lovers in this century can’t give up their lives for each other like Romeo and Juliet or create a second Taj Mahal for their beloved. They know how to keep things simple and yet make them appear special. Be it reel life or real life, they make sure that the romance lasts forever. And how can anything be more special than getting married on the Valentine’s Day?
