Celebrating a Special Anniversary 25 YEARS LATER
T his year, my wife, Chandana, and I will have been married for 25 years. Shortly after we were married, we left India and started our life in the U.S. It’s really been the only home we have known together as husband and wife. It’s hard to imagine that we have been together for this long, but through the many ups and downs, it’s been amazing to watch our lives unfold together. I believe one of the strongest points Chandana and I have is our ability to complement one another. Running a business takes a lot of the strengths that I believe I have, but you cannot be superhuman. We have a lot of weaknesses, too, but we often cover each other’s struggles.

Our children have learned where our strengths lie and who they can rely on for what. It’s created a stronger relationship between us and our children, and I feel we have created a good family bond together. This balance we have struck between one another has made for a great pairing. We complement each other in ways that go beyond the day-to-day, and it’s allowed our relationship, parenting, and business to grow.
While our traits may differ and play off one another, I believe the foundation of our relationship is the fact that we share the same values. We both appreciate hard work and doing what’s best for our clients. We both want what’s best for our children and encourage them to do what makes them happy. The superficial stuff like our temperaments and tactics may vary, but we are united on the values that mean the most in our lives. That’s the secret to an “opposites attract” kind of marriage.
While I may not be a very patient person, Chandana approaches everything with
