(CNN) — Nupur Gupta was nearing the end of a two-week stint teaching at a yoga retreat in Goa, India.
This was Attila Bosnyak, a financial adviser in his forties hailing from Hungary but based in the Netherlands.
Coincidentally, Bosnyak was a student at Gupta's yoga retreat where, he says, he'd been trying to "disconnect from the hustle and work pressure and the Dutch winter."
Yoga teacher Nupur Gupta got into difficulty while swimming.
"But I couldn't really, so two, three, four times I was basically pushed onto the rock by the wave."

She left Kerala and flew to her family home in Lucknow, in the north of India, to support her family.
It wasn't a marriage proposal but a promise to love one another, and to commit to making their relationship work.

For Gupta, the idea had been in the back of her mind since Bosnyak saved her life in Goa.
When the EU eased Covid travel restrictions in summer 2020, Bosnyak and Gupta seized the opportunity to travel to Greece.
