One of the woman doctors, Dr. Paromita Mukherjee, spoke about her experience and said, “My father knew about my sexual orientation since 2013. When I told my mother recently, she was shocked. But later she agreed because she wants me to be happy.” In fact, even her partner, Surbhi Mitra said that her family never expressed opposition to her sexual orientation. She further added, “In fact, when I told my parents, they were happy. I’m a psychiatrist and many people talk to me about living a dual life because they couldn’t take a stand for themselves.”
The doctor couple marked their relationship as a lifetime commitment to each other with a commitment ring ceremony wherein they got engaged to each other. In the ceremony, the two women took vows to spend the rest of their lives together. The couple also said that they plan to get married in Goa soon.
It is true, isn’t it, that some couples deserve a happy ending? Well, they are definitely the couple that deserves it! I mean, this same-sex couple once again proved that love will always prevail over any societal prejudice and stereotypes. And what can be more beautiful than seeing two people who love each other, married?
