The very next week, Sahib sought my hand in marriage from my grandmother Shamshad Abdul Waheed Khan's approval. Consequently, on this day October 2nd, we had a quiet family ceremony where Dilip Sahib and I exchanged engagement rings and my dream of becoming Dilip Sahib's wife stepped onto the threshold of coming true."
