We do need a Valentines Day

Well well well…need I say more what this post is gonna be all about…infact there hardly would be any blogger in this month who wudnt write something or other about this love season.

Valentine’s Day on February 14th. A day when you express your love to your loved ones… a day when all the loving hearts can contribute towards generating some much sought after revenue for all the related industries like liquor, music, chcolates, cards, drive insane amount of traffic to the online e-card sites, flock the restaurants, request yuckily mushy songs for your daaaaaaaaarlin etc etc and of and course say the magical 3 words again and again and again.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm sooo sweeeet :):):)

And next day, next day you go by your work, dont have time for breakfast together, you miss your dates, you get irritated when they call you in the middle of a meeting, you cant catch a movie with him coz you are going out for a office get together, you talk only when required…till the next Valentine’s day.

Sad but true.

And for this scenario only we DO NEED a Valentine’s day…coz we live such zanny and insanely crazy lives that we neither have time for ourselves nor for the ones we love. We are soo busy with our office troubles, with our EMIs, with the bumper to bumper traffic that we forget to say I love You to ourselves even! Many say that we shudn’t need a day to express our love, that it is nothing but a marketing gimmick by all who can benefit from this…

And they are RIGHT.

But nothing wrong with having a reason to stop and just look at the people who are walking with us, who never left our side, who stuck with us even when we wereΒ  at our worst…and just say thanks to them.

But I do not agree to 14th February. Y shud I celebrate my valentine’s day on 14th Feb? Nothing special happened to me that day.Everyone should have their own Valentine’s day…a day dats special to them, that reminds them of that special moment or that special person.

Day you first met.

Day you had your first argument.

Day you first kissed and felt you have come home.

Day you had a nasty fight and you swear never to see their face again…and called up a week later.

Day you knew this is it..he/she is the one and felt instant peace.

That would be YOUR Valentine’s Day :):) Never fail to celebrate that day.

  1. um.. u know what? feb 14th is easy to remember… the day i first met her, the day we had fist kiss – man, how on earth can one remember all these dates? 😐 (ok ok – dont hit me with a brick – I was just joking πŸ˜‰ )

  2. Arvind: Thanks. do write a post wen it happens ok πŸ™‚ And thanks for your email πŸ™‚

    Anoop: Typical guy response…and dont worry, i aint askin u to remember all of dem..just mark any one of them dats most special for you…simple πŸ™‚

  3. agree.. and am sure people have their own dates for celebrating their personal V- day..

    but I guess.. 14th Feb is or was created to just unify people across the world and acknowledge love ..can u imagine be it India, US, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Brazil, Sydney… this it the ONLY day like 31st , the citizens of this planet are united.. ..celebrating just LOVE… πŸ™‚

    I find it very interesting and my bows to the person who came up with this wonderful concept and brought the whole world on the same platform..

  4. O cmon! To unify the world, we have world unity day or smthng like dat. And it surely isnt unifying India with the west. Remember all the mess they made in archies card shops some years back to protest against 14th Feb?

  5. i agree to this πŸ™‚ juz coz i believe de whole world needn’t celebrate V-day on 14th of feb! it shud vary according to the people!! πŸ™‚
