FC: Mujhse Shaadi Karoge? | October 1, 2011 Signature Lounge at John Hancock Center Chicago, IL
1: This is the view from the 96th floor of John Hancock building at the Signature Lounge. | The Story begins with the planning of the event. Janu had recently started a new rotation. Keval and I were in the same rotation and we utilized our time together to plan out all the details. Keval had an idea to get Janu's current Doctor, Dr. Shah, and his wife, Mrs. Shah involved. He made a flyer that was for a pharmaceutical conference. The flyer was then given to Mrs. Shah who then passed it on to Janu....
2: Keval spent quite a bit of time on this flyer to make it credible. Are you buying it? Mrs. Shah also had a big part. After passing on the flyer to Janu, she emphasized that attendance was mandatory. To further play along, Mrs. Shah even rushed out of the office saying she needed to dye her hair for the meeting. | Another Tid-bit!! Keval and I specially went to the Signature Lounge the day before, straight from work, to give specific instructions to the staff so no one would blow our cover....
3: Downtown Chicago can be quite hectic and confusing to maneuver in. In order to prevent Janu from getting lost and frustrated if she were to navigate alone, I thought if I told her that I was meeting my friend in the city, we could enjoy a girls night after her conference. Meanwhile, the boys made a ploy to go to the driving range for the entire evening.
4: The boys had left early so they could talk to the staff at Signature Lounge and inform them on the plan. Poor Keval was waiting for hours patiently.
5: Janu and I reached John Hancock on schedule. We went upstairs and told the hostess, Hannah, that Janu was here for the conference. Hannah had already been informed by Keval on what to do next. She walked us to the lounge and I tried to get away by saying I have to use the restroom. Hannah walked Janu to the table...... by the way...Jay was hiding in the area ready to take pictures
6: Keval was already waiting at the table. While Janu's eyes filled with tears, he got down on one knee and said.....
7: "Janu, for the past three years we have been through thick and thin and I know that if we can get through that, Im sure we can get through anything life throws at us. You are the love of my life. Would do me the honor and spend the rest of your life with me?" What did Janu say.....
8: Yes of course!!! Congrats guys!
9: Of course we popped a bottle of champagne afterwards
10: I know guys....you wanted the close up of the ring....well here you go.
11: Meet the accomplices who helped put this romantic event together..... | Partner in crime....meeeeeee

19: A Special Thank You: I couldn't believe how elaborate and romantic the dynamic duo Keval and Virali could have been until I saw Keval kneeling down on one knee at the signature lounge. I want to thank Virali and Jay for being a huge part of this special moment in my life. I also want to thank both sets of parents and siblings for their gracious blessings and support to both Keval and I. We cannot wait to celebrate this joyous occasion with all of you very soon! Love, Janu
