"Ours is a classic story of forbidden love, elopement, family estrangement and reconciliation. People say it's so romantic," says Englishman Tim Wallace from the veranda of his home in the town of Tura in north-east India.
"The last decade has certainly been an adventure," he says while drinking tea served by his wife Minna.
The couple and their nine-month-old daughter, Amazonia, celebrated their 10th anniversary this month and to say it has been a turbulent decade would be something of an under-statement.
Forty two-year-old Tim's story reads like a modern-day version of a Victorian love scandal, complete with bouts of serious illness.
A Sheffield University drop-out, Tim changed his name to Timbo Rainbow, embraced a hippy lifestyle in the late 1980s and took to travelling throughout towns in northern England to earn a living as a professional juggler.
