Despite the harsh times the previous generations lived in, kids were just kids anyway. They had their own joy, dreams, and their own idea of a happy future. Times change, and it becomes difficult to explain to modern kids what the world was like in the past.

When hearing captivating stories about love, many of us sigh and say, “This is something that can only happen in movies,” because the majority of great declarations of love aren’t usually an everyday thing. The hero of this article proved with his beautiful and fearless act of love that there is a place for real love in this world.

Bright Side wants to share this amazing and truthful story that reveals the secret of endless love.

How it all started

The story of the love between Pradyumna Kumar Mahanandia and Charlotte Von Schedvin began way before their first meeting. In India, where Pradyumna was born, families are accustomed to visiting an astrologist when a child is born. The astrologist predicted that despite tradition, the child would marry an aristocrat from a far-away country who was born under the sign of Taurus, was able to play flute, and possessed a great amount of forest land.

Their meeting

Pradyumna had a difficult childhood as he belonged to the lowest caste of untouchability of Indian society. “I was treated worse than stray dogs and cattle.” Pradyumna remembers, “When I passed by a temple, people threw rocks at me.”

During his youth, Pradyumna drew portraits on the streets of Delhi where he encountered Charlotte Von Schedvin, a Swedish tourist. He remembered his prediction at once and began asking her questions while drawing her portrait. What was her Zodiac sign? Taurus. Did she play the flute? Yes, flute and piano. It also turned out that her family owned forest lands. This part of the prediction also turned out to be true. “It all fits,” Pradyumna said, “you are meant to be my wife.”

After that, the couple became involved romantically and they soon got married in Pradyumna’s village in line with local tradition.

Separation

This story wouldn’t have been so beautiful if there was no separation — Charlotte had to come back to Sweden. Pradyumna promised to join her there as soon as he could.

The spouses lived separately for 16 months and wrote letters to each other. Pradyumna understood that he couldn’t live without his beloved any longer. He sold all his possessions but it was still not enough to buy an air ticket. He ended up buying a used bicycle for 60 rupees, said good-bye to his family, and hit the road with 200 rupees in his pocket.

The road

His journey began on January 22, 1977. There were 5 months of traveling ahead of him. Pradyumna covered 45 miles every day. By the time he reached Sweden, he had covered over 6,000 miles.

“I was very tired. My legs ached but my desire to see Charlotte pushed me forward. My art saved me, I drew portraits of people who paid with money, food or a place to sleep at night.”

During those times, many countries didn’t demand visas for entrance, which made his journey easier, but when he reached Sweden, Immigration refused to let Pradyumna into the country. Authorities didn’t believe his story, they thought it was too extraordinary. But as soon as they called Charlotte, they understood that his story was true and they let him pass.

Pradyumna was asked whether it was possible for migrating poor people to make the same journey during present times, he answered, “Yes. If you really want it, everything becomes possible. Of course, such a journey is more difficult now, but it is still possible. Fear and doubts are our main foes. It is them that make our life more complicated.”

Reunion

Pradyumna reached Boras on May 28, 1977, and finally met Charlotte after being separated from her for 2 long years.

“We couldn’t talk. We just cried in each other’s embrace.”

For the sake of Charlotte’s happiness, her parents forgot about the rules that didn’t allow nobility to marry people with dark skin. The couple married again in 1979, in accordance with Swedish laws.

40 years later

Since the moment of their reunion, more than 40 years have passed. Despite this long period of time, Pradyumna says that he still can’t believe his happiness. He doubts whether he would have been capable to conquer Charlotte’s heart in current times when people from all over the world can stay connected via the internet. But Pradyumna never doubts one thing: “Your fate is something that you make with your own hands.”

When asked about the secret of their love, the couple says that there is no secret. The main thing is to be sincere, to understand each other, and to respect each other.

This true story of the power of love is a beautiful example of just how possible everything can be when 2 people are in love. If someone is in love and has a goal, there’s no obstacle that can deter them from their path. Lack of money, distance, prejudice, and any other things that stand in the way between 2 people in love are seen only as small hurdles.

We really admired the story of this Indian artist and his beloved. What did you think was the most interesting part of this story? Do you have your own incredible love story that you’d like to share with us?


Owning a camera doesn’t make you a photographer. Apart from the equipment, you need a special vision. These photos of duck paws, a flamingo, and a regular grater were taken by those who have it. Now you can get all the visual pleasure you want.

Bright Side has gathered photos that provide a different view on ordinary things and it looks really cool.

In the ’90s, the legendary supermodel, Cindy Crawford released several video workouts that had amazing success. Crawford’s exercises are simple and effective and require the work of all the main muscle groups without the need for any special equipment.

At Bright Side, we decided to do the workouts that Cindy developed and liked them so much we want to share them with you! Don’t forget about doing a warm-up before the workout — and then you can start on your journey to getting the perfect shape!

1. Squats: knees outward

Let’s start the workout with leg exercises. Put the legs a little wider than the shoulders, and feet should be pointed outward. Do 10 deep squats. Push the hips up actively, you can place your hands on the waist.

2. Lunges

One more simple and effective exercise for legs is regular lunges. Do 10 reps.

3. Squats: “sitting on the chair”

The initial position has you with your feet at shoulder width apart and your hands on the waist. You should do squats again, but differently this time: imagine that you are sitting down on a chair. Do 10 reps. Then, do 10 lunges again.

4. Squats: legs together

The last cycle of squats should be done with your legs together, hands forward. Complete 10 reps. After this exercise, do 10 more lunges.

5. Incomplete push-ups

Now let’s do a few exercises for the abs and chest. Put your hands at shoulder width, keeping your hips and legs against the mat. Do two sets, 10 reps in each.

6. Incomplete body lifting

Keep your legs bent and your hands behind your head. Lift your body 20 times, keeping your back on the mat.

7. Complete body lifting

Keep your knees bent and your hands behind your head. Now lift your entire body. Do 20 reps.

8. Abs exercises

Reach your right leg with your left elbow, the right hand should be on the floor or on your belly. Do 20 reps, then switch the hand and leg, and repeat.

9. Legs up

This exercise is good for the lower muscles of the belly: lie on your back and put your hands down alongside your body. Lift your legs up 20 times.

If you have a balanced diet and do these exercises regularly, you will have the perfect shape very soon. Are you ready to try it?

During her lifetime, a woman will spend approximately $15,000 on makeup alone, but this is not the only thing women spend money on. And some of these things look… Well, just see for yourself.

We, at Bright Side, love women of all shapes and sizes, but we can’t avoid talking about some spending habits we find odd, like the purchases on this list.

17. Make-out practice pillow

Thehe popularity of these pillows is actually astonishing. But we guess everybody gets lonely sometimes.

16. RAD Emergency Bra

An object that can save your life! This was invented by Dr. Elena Bodnar who, at the time, was the founder and president of the Trauma Risk Management Research Institute in Chicago. This stylish bra transforms into two gas masks with independent strap systems. Having 20 years of experience in research under her belt, Dr. Bondar should know what she’s talking about… maybe we should get one?

15. Cuchini

This simple little thing will prevent the showing of a “camel toe” in any type of panties or trousers. But you could just get clothing in your size to avoid this issue.

14. GoGirl

This hefty tube let’s women pee standing up. We’d leave it at that, but we just have to mention that the original version is currently sold out on their website. The website that has already sold over 5 million of these. You go girl!

13. Boob glue

This “gravity defying” product claims to hold boobs of all sizes in place. They claim to be “A Cleavage Make-Over in a Bottle” and promise to keep your boobs perky.

12. Heel condoms

Yep, you’ve read it right. Invented, at first, as a simple protective cover for heels, this evolved into a fashion trend and basically lets you choose a ton of styles to turn your shoes into.

11. BraZing

For everyone who’s tired of seeing simple bra straps, there is the BraZing company. We can best explain what they make as bra strap wrappers. Our only question — is it really that different from before?

10. Foot undiez

Because why just have undies in regular places, right? We believe this was invented by a person with a little… foot fetish.

9. Ta-ta towels

Do you even know there were towels made for specific body parts? Yep, and here’s the boob towel — support and dryness is their message, we think.

8. Beetle earrings

While a huge part of us would presume this jewelry to be quite creepy, it’s popular with a certain group of people. Just don’t put it on to meet your significant other’s parents.

7. Handholding phonecase

For the lonely among us… Who else in their life wants to talk on the phone and hold a plastic hand at the same time? Except maybe the inventors of this phone case.

6. Ryan Gosling pillow

We get it, he’s handsome, talented, and quite ripped in all the right places, but do we really need a Ryan Gosling in every bed?

5. Hug buddy

Speaking of extremely masculine pillows — here’s another product for people lacking hugs in their life. And it’s also in stock!

4. Smile trainer

No matter how anti-feminist it is to tell a woman to smile more — apparently ladies are totally up for buying this product on their own. It literally stretches out the corners of your mouth to give you a “perfect smile” — whatever that means.

3. Wine Bra

If you were thinking to sneak some wine into the movie theater or your kid’s recital — don’t. For other sneaky cases there is this bra that can store up to a bottle of wine. Let’s hope there’s no leaking.

2. Lipstick helper

Perfect plump lips are the dream of the modern woman, right? If you don’t want to put time into learning how to apply lipstick, you can always purchase this creepy looking mask. Also handy for Halloween!

1. Side sleep boob pillow

Is one of your boobs smashing the other one while you are asleep. Prevent this risky business with the boob pillow.

Did you get a laugh or did you find something useful on our list? Be sure to share it with us in the comments and may God save you from unnecessary purchases!


There are some stupid rules in our society. Like in Oklahoma you’re not allowed to make an ugly face and this can actually land you in jail. Now what about people like us who are already ugly? Anyway, rules have been created and followed since the beginning of time in order to maintain peace in society. But what happens when you take them too literally?

Here, at Bright Side, we’ve put together a list of the people who follow the rules too literally. Have you ever heard of a “Dude Chilling Park”? Keep scrolling if you haven’t.

1. “Can’t argue with that.”

2. “Stumbled upon this legendary park. Much chilling was had.”

3. We can only imagine.

4. “This guy gets it.”

5. You got it.

6. “This isn’t exactly what we meant when we told him that he could look up puppy training tips on YouTube.”

9. “Just doing what my wife asked.”

10. Yup doggie, it’s your fault.

12. “Girlfriend told me to wear a plain tie to dinner tonight.”

13. Just following the instructions.

14. “Under watch”

15. “Found some amazing Indian writing.”

16. “My friend’s daughter taking the instructions literally.”

17. Or rather ’falling twins’

18. Stop your car, draw a bridge, and then you might be able to pass.

19. The driver took this too literally.

20. Give this kid a medal.

21. The smoke goes into the atmosphere faster this way.

22. “He chose… wisely.”

23. He might have lost his job later that day.

24. “I’m on it.”

25. “Job well done”

Don’t follow the rules so literally guys! Tag someone who follows the rules too literally and don’t forget to share the article if you like it.
