“Here, we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
… and that is why change is necessary, change is progress and it is the only constant.
At Bonobology, we channel our energies towards documenting couple relationships as they exist among Indians across the globe. It is our ongoing endeavour that in doing so, we continue to bring to our readers, the best content in the most user friendly manner. Our transformation and move to WordPress is a step forward in the same direction. You will find that our new look is not just sleek but also simpler and more fun!
