Their Tale

The two had been in different countries since then until last year, when their destinies brought them back to Chandigarh and like Davina says, “we decided on forever.”

They both are best friends first and being typical IIM graduates, enjoy discussing stock market, financial planning, and their future goals!

Davina was at her work conference at The LaLit when Nikhil surprised her with flowers and balloons by the poolside. That’s where he went down on his knees with a gorgeous ring and asked her to marry him.
