Daanish Khan: Love has a transformative power, turns the impossible into possible

Love is a transition from I to you to we, says Daanish Khan, who is married to late music composer Naushad’s granddaughter Umarah Naushad Ali. Daanish, who is an event planner and is part of the senior management in a prominent hotel in Dubai, says that life with Umarah has been nothing much blissful, such is the power of their love.

“The significance of love in my life lies in its transformative power, turning the impossible into the possible. I genuinely believe that love provides guidance and enhances every aspect of a person's journey, making them better in all aspects of life. The idea of love for me is friendship.  The love that you have for your partner does pass to the phase of friendship and then she is your best friend. It's about trust, loyalty, understanding, standing with each other through thick and thin, and giving respect to each other and your loved ones and your partner's loved ones. Love is also about two people not giving up on each other when nothing goes right.  They become from I and you to we,” he says.

He adds, “For me, love is synonymous with friendship. It's the journey where romantic love evolves into a deep companionship, where your partner becomes your best friend. It's built on trust, loyalty, honesty, understanding, and unwavering support through life's challenges. Love means respecting each other and embracing not only each other but also each other's loved ones.”

Ask him how he plans to make Valentine’s Day special for her, and he says, “Every day spent with Umi is a treasure, as we embark on our journey as a couple, discovering new facets of each other. Whether apart or together, each moment holds its significance. While I may not have specific plans for something extraordinary, I can confidently say that every day and every morning has been filled with the magic of her presence. I just want to paint a canvas of life with a lot of beautiful memories.”

He adds, “I am relishing this current phase of life with her. One valuable lesson I've learned is that when one person is upset, the other needs to stay composed, and vice versa.”

He says that he wants to promise to give her the best life and companionship possible. “I would want us to  make a simple vow to each other: we'll strive to stay by each other's side until the end, navigating life's challenges together. We promise not to let outside influences interfere and to resolve our differences solely between us, continuing to love each other unconditionally,” he says.

He adds, “I have learned over time that love and human relationships are simple, it's we who make it complex.  We just need to be honest and speak out and stop keeping things that we don't like to ourselves. It's ok if someone does not like it but you will be at peace that you spoke what's inside you. Through experience, I've come to realize that love and human connections are inherently simple, it's our actions that complicate them. All it takes is honesty and open communication; withholding our grievances only adds unnecessary complexity. It's alright if someone disagrees; what matters is finding peace in expressing our true feelings.”
