When an IIT guy meets a girl from Lady Shri Ram College, they are supposed to talk sensible things. However, their first meeting was a mix of an interview and a date. In the second meeting, when Sahil vanished from the tea shop without paying the bill, Soumya decided not to marry him. But as destiny would have it, they got married in February 2017 in the most beautiful location of India – in front of Taj Mahal.

The ‘coolness’ of his parents is reflected in Sahil’s nature. Guided by a father who loves taking the leap of faith and Maa who is cheerful and strict, Sahil’s life has always been inspired by them. Soumya comes from Ghaziabad with multiple sets of guiding forces. Her brother, bhabhi, her sister and brother-in-law have inspired her as much her parents.

Teased as Public Policy Couple, Sahil and Soumya work together in four organizations. Both of them are learning to manage time amongst various works and family responsibilities.

They love travelling, reading and watching movies together. In this blog, we share our experiences and ideas. Their passion for work for the nation unites and energises them.
