The stupid day of lovers...

 “Today's Valentine's Day. There's a whole day devoted solely to love. Does that make any sense? Nah. Love makes us all crazy. But it's fun too.” 

― Lisa Greenwald, Sweet Treats & Secret Crushes


 So, its Valentines day tomorrow:)

I have been hearing so many things about it from the people around... There are few who absolutely love the day, have taken a leave from work and have planned a very romantic day with their lovers. And there are others who absolutely abhor this day and the idea of celebrating love.

I would not talk about the former ones. The later ones are the people who really made me think, who pushed me to jolt my head and mull over my brains. Yes, I completely agree that this whole idea of Valentines day and celebrating it is bogus, its fake. Yes! I mean, come one guys. Lets face it. Its crap! And everyone knows that, including people who celebrate this day with full zeal and fervor.

The argument that people who are against V-day give is that, why do you need a special day to celebrate your love. You can celebrate it daily:)

Yes, indeed you can celebrate it daily. Why not? And who is stopping you? But... please for a moment pause, and try to put little pressure on that sweet little brain of yours and then, try to touch the memory vein in your head, and now think and try to remember when was the last time you bought flowers for your lover? When was the last time, you went out on a romantic dinner? When was the last time, you held your lover's hand, and expressed your feelings in a true and an awesome way? When was the last time, you two really spent time with each other, without any external disturbance (including tabs, phones and TVs)? When was the last time, you surprised her/him with a gift? When was the last time you made her/him feel special? When was the last time you thought of giving her/him an amazing surprise? And offcourse the exception in all the above said are the general events like birthdays, Anniversaries. The things done on these days are bounded to more of a formality:) Hey, your brain is going on a guilt trip. Catch it. There is still lot in which we need its help:)

Now just think, remember...Ok, atleast try to remember when was the last time you said "I love you" with the same genuinity and feelings that resides in your heart? When was the last time you took the pain of converting your feelings into a bright tinkle in your eyes?

I am sure the answer to most of the above mentioned questions, would be a NO.

Then, whats the harm in doing all this, on this one day when everyone around, when the complete atmosphere is in love.

May be its bogus, but its worth it. So, before criticizing the creator of this day, just think what he had given the world in the form of this one stupid day: an opportunity to make your lover feel special, a chance to celebrate this amazing feeling called love, a day to take an off from all your stress and tensions and spend it with the one you love.

Now, whats wrong in doing all this? Even if its fake? Even if its bogus? At least, it makes you do something that you would otherwise never do consciously. Its only going to give you some happiness, some precious moments and memories of love and it surely doesnt have the capability and power to snatch away anything. Then, whats the harm:) Its a good deal. An awesome one indeed:)

And if you are someone who haven't still got a chance to fall in love and have no lover, chill. Celebrate this day with your best friends, your siblings, your mom, your cousins. Celebrate it with whom-so-ever you love the most in the whole wide world. Its about celebrating love. And love can be of any form. Everyone, without exception loves someone in this world:) So, it means everyone has a reason to celebrate their love

So, cheer up, smile, buy some flower for the one you love, buy chocolates for that special one and go and celebrate this stupid love day with loads of love, hugs, smiles and happiness! Tell them how much you love them.

Its wise to be stupid sometimes!
