Mezbah Ul Aziz (L), 34, and Mausumi Iqbal, 33, pose for a photo in a coffee shop where they hang out on a regular basis in Dhaka, Bangladesh, February 7, 2018. "Our story was not love-at-first-sight type. In fact, we used to remain at opposite ends of the class mostly when we met first, but you know about magic, it always happens with surprises. Both of us are dentists and married for eight years now. Before that, we met at our dental school on June 1, 2004, on the first day of the class. We both were invited to give a short speech before our classmates and teachers. I went first, and later him. We never admitted, but maybe we felt some spark on the first day, but it was definitely not love. Later, we chose different paths, chose different reading partners for daily life. But fate brought us together after a year and a half. I was being bullied by some of my friends and my reading partners, then he came out of nowhere. He did not need to help me, but he did. From that day, we started our journey together. Our story was being written as one by fate and now, we have a treasure too, our five-year-old daughter, the centre of our attraction, the sign of our love," said Mausumi.
