Love, they say, knows no boundaries. But we often hear about religion, caste and other social norms that come between true love.
Now, a New York couple is trying to shatter that notion, thanks to their recent photos going viral. A photo-shoot of a Pakistani-American artist Sundas Malik and an Indian-American Hindu woman Anjali Chakra, celebrating their one-year anniversary of being together, has taken the internet by storm.
According to new reports, their post has been retweeted over 8,000 times, and liked by nearly 48,000 users in four days.
The same-sex-couple is seen sharing adorable moments against some picturesque New York City backgrounds.
The images were shared by their photographer @Sarowarrrr on Twitter with the caption “A New York Love Story.” Sundas shared one of the images where she is lovingly kissing her girlfriend’s forehead. Chakra too, shared one of the images with the caption, “We went to two weddings in two cities in three days & a summer storm wasn’t about to be the thing that stopped us” on her Instagram profile.
The couple also shared their one-year of togetherness and these two pictures posted by them profess their desire to “grow together in each other’s love.” The couple has been receiving immense appreciation and support from netizens who can’t get over the love in the pictures.
“Revolution on so many levels. Hindu- Muslims, India- Pakistan, two women lovers. Kudos and congratulations,” tweeted one user. Meanwhile, Malik and Chakra have another goal along with sharing their milestone moment and professing their love for each other: They want their story to start “conversations that are a step towards a safer future.”
