If you’ve lost all hopes of finding your true love then this story is sure to reinstate the belief that love comes in all shapes and sizes. At just under three-and-a-half foot tall, Arif Ibrahim Tambe, who had grown against a backdrop of extreme size prejudice had resigned himself to living life alone. But little did he know that when life deprives you of something it gives you something back in return.
One fine day when Arif was at his shop in a Thane market, a young girl called Ameena Ahmed met him and it was love at first sight. Ameena clarified that the marriage was not out of compassion but rather a conscious decision. In spite of the threat of being disowned by her family, Ameena decided to follow her heart and tied the knot. Ameena is confident that Arif will take good care of her and the fact that he is self-employed makes him very special.
The couple now live in Pune and have a child. Arif is determined not to be a burden on his family, especially after the birth of their son and has invested in an electric wheelchair. This gives him more independence and mobility and with the new found confidence, the couple are happy to step out in public.
