It’s Valentine’s Day. Good, bad and ugly, everybody has a story of love to share on this day (or any other). Celebrity chef Gaggan Anand shared a small nugget of his life, as this day dedicated to love coincided with him completing 14 years in Bangkok, Thailand.

Anand shared a picture of his passport on Instagram, writing that a frequently asked question has been why he left India. “Today I finish 14 years in Thailand...The true reason I left India was that no one would believe but today I am not scared to say that I ran from my first wife .. she was my first love we were together from 1998.. I ran from her becoz after 7 years of toxicity I had no love left although funny enough I gave her second chance we lived in thailand together 2007-2008. She was the most Abusive person I met .. mentally ill or maybe I always thought I wasn’t good enough...we separated legally and I forgave her but the scars remain .. and this is life many times relationships happed love happened and things change love is healing today I have love and happiness becoz I believe in love and rebel in life .. Don’t accept and loveless life in a toxic relationship being free and happy is most important thing. Happy valentines to all of u .. real love heals !! 14 years back I ran to freedom..”

Anand found love second time around, getting married to Thai national Pui, and the couple have a daughter named Tara. Pui also doubles up as Anand’s business partner in his latest restaurant venture. In an interview, Anand said, “I could not have done this without her. She has designed and built this restaurant single-handedly and allowed me to focus on the food.”
