I'll also always have a soft spot for Bella and Jacob from Twilight (even though they weren't an official couple!). :)(less)

“This is our life. We get to decide the rules. We get to say what goes and what stays, what matters and what doesn’t.”
Sandhya Menon, When Dimple Met Rishi

“But that was Rishi... he was like a pop song you thought you couldn't stand, but found yourself humming in the shower anyway.”
Sandhya Menon, When Dimple Met Rishi

“I feel like I need to speak out, because if no one speaks out, if no one says, this is me, this is what I believe in, and this is why I'm different, and this is why that's okay, then what's the point? What's the point of living in this beautiful, great melting pot where everyone can dare be anything they want to be?”
Sandhya Menon, When Dimple Met Rishi
