“Be what you are.”
Kumar Gaurav Dhavan & Shruti
Kumar Gaurav Dhavan, IRS officer, is the Deputy Director of PGIMER, Chandigarh. Gaurav believes in ‘being what you are’ and ‘letting your spouse do the same. “Accepting the ups and downs in a relationship is important. Marriage is a commitment for life,” he says. Shruti greatly inspires Gaurav; he concurs. She handles multiple charges simultaneously with naughty kids, he adds! “She is the home ministry,” he declares. Shruti is pursuing higher studies, and Gaurav encourages her to do so. Since his job is extremely demanding, he tries to maintain a calm demeanour and resolve complex issues in a balanced manner. Knowing and realizing the value and importance of each other in their lives is how their relationship works. When asked what the one thing he would like to change about his partner is, he says, “The timing/start of the relationship itself! I would have liked the relationship to begin even earlier than it did!” Love-packed and sweet indeed!
