"Though having a failed marriage behind her it was Gautami's faith in
the marital bond and in her self that helped her take the leap of
marrying once again."
Gautami Kapoor, Actress
With a failed marriage behind her, well-known television actress,
Gautami is looking at life more positively. Starting afresh, she has
tied the knot with her co-star, Ram Kapoor. Married to Ram for almost
nine months now, Gautami feels that her first marriage has taught her
a great deal about love and life.
"Basically, I have always been a very sensitive person. So I was
really devastated when my marriage ended. My family gave me
tremendous strength to overcome the greatest tragedy in my life. They
nudged me to accept reality and awakened the fighter in me, which I
didn't know existed. The whole experience has taught me the
importance of family in our lives."
'I faced a lot of flak'
"Mine was not a bitter separation and though there were no ill
feelings, I had to face a lot of flak from the society. People told
me I was making a wrong decision but I was firm. Many of us are
afraid of leaving a bad relationship for the fear of being alone and
the reaction of the society."
Communication, the key
"I would never communicate my true feelings and that was probably the
reason why my first marriage broke up. Communication is extremely
important as it opens up channels of discussion and debate. Ram and
my parents were instrumental in helping me cope with my problems.
Every bad experience teaches you a valuable lesson. My experience has
taught me to live for the moment; that life is too short to be
running scared. I don't apply the lessons from previous marriage to
this one, because I don't compare the two relationships. Every
relationship is unique and must be approached differently."
Walk in with your eyes open
"It is my sincere appeal to all the girls out there to be patient and
not to get into any relationship without really thinking and knowing
what's best for you. Break-ups are not cool, but no matter what the
situation is don't let the world get you down."
Wonderful moments of the present
Gautami successfully put behind her past and with strong faith
instilled in the institution of marriage she wed her co- actor Ram
