Love that defied religious hatred and death threats, love that miraculously survived a death train during Partition, love that defeated the most deep rooted ostracism... these beautiful love stories make you believe in the unbelievable. We feature couples who had unshakable faith in their love and knew that no matter what, they would be together one day. These stories tell us that the powers of evil do not stand a chance in front of unconditional, all encompassing love. These couples reinstate our belief that hate, wrath and rage will always be vanquished, when pitted against love and goodness. Here’s to love that made the lives of ordinary people, extraordinary, with its sheer magic.
