Most of you, whether single, married or divorced, must have celebrated Valentine’s Day whether with friends, a loved one, your children, a combo, or even by yourself. Now it’s time to celebrate it with GT!

One lady, Maham Asif, a telecom engineer in Lahore, was cheered up by her friend, Javeria Virk, with a chocolate cake with pink frosting that said “Happy Divorce”. It was a gesture to bolster her spirits, and the pictures were posted online on a food forum. Most people posted supportive comments but there were also those who thought it was haram and issued their personal fatwas. The ladies replied that in no way were they advocating divorce, but merely expressing love and unconditional support. Isn’t that the true spirit of Valentine’s? It’s not just about the cards, chocolates and flowers.

In the same way, Kiran Rao managed to lighten Aamir Khan’s load and bring light into his life after his divorce from his first wife that left him deep in depression, unable to work or even leave his house. That’s why he had taken a four year hiatus from films. It was this emotional connection that surprised everyone when a huge superstar married a struggling assistant director, who is more impish and boho than gorgeous and glamorous. Read the story of their love in this issue’s Memorable Romance.
