” Happy Velentine’s Day, belatedly…But I wonder if love gets drowned in all that noise of the day we make these days. ”
This is a comment I received from Neena for my post ‘Valentine’s day thoughts’. Frankly I have been also thinking about it for a while , I thought I will ask what my other friends think .
Here is my two cents . I would like to know what you think !
I believe in a ‘ Valentine’s Life’ than a ‘Valentine’s day’ . Don’t we all live for the one’s we love ?
If we start thinking of it as a waste of time , money and culture intrusion , what is the point of all the other celebrations and festivals ? They were also started at some point and then became a part of our culture . Don’t we spend a fortune celebrating all those festivals ?
What is important is we should not let ourselves carried away to a point that the days become more important than the life or what it is celebrated for . Even when drowned in the noise we can take our stand , Can’t we Instead of joining the shopping spree and the hullabulla we can give a hug or a smile , or do something that make the ones we love happy or we can have a quiet evening with the family
But it was nice to celebrate the day in a naive and girlish way too , I would add
May be world is moving into a global festival culture . Isn’t there some good in it ? The world coming together to celebrate a festival not for the sake of religion or caste but for love , for nature , for planet earth , for peace , for brotherhood , for mothers , fathers or other happy moments in life . I am loving the idea.
Thanks for the comment Neena . This part was also there in my mind as a tail for the post . Thanks for helping me find the words to put down my thoughts 😀
