Do you get these messages via email, SMS/Text, email, Twitter or Facebook posts – “Dear friends, Valentine’s day is boosted by MNC’s (or Hallmark, gifts & soft toys manufacturers, blah blah) to hike up their turnover/profit!” And then the comments to join in the boycotting of the celbration of the day and not to buy cards or gifts, giving in to the capitalist robots. Political & religions groups also get into the act. For eg:- the members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal on Monday February 13 protested against the celebration of Valentine’s Day and called for the closure of pubs in the city on February 14. They also warned that their members would take action themselves if anything offensive takes place, and that they would hand over the offenders to the police.
Most of the protests by Hindu & Muslims and some Christian complain that Valentine’s day is a Western concept which has eroded Indian culture, urging the district administration & police to take steps to ensure that youths in the country do not indulge in any immoral or vulgar acts. Right wing Hindu group Shri Ram Sene burnt Valentine Day cards to protest the celebration of February 14, terming it as a manifestation of the western culture, saying the organization is not against the emotion of love, but is bitterly opposed to its “vulgar” display. Really?
Do these people have nothing better to do? Of all the things they could do to better society they choose to do this? How insanely stupid & infantile! Morons the lot of them.
Let me tell you, as a 35 year old bachelor I have nothing planned but if I had a girlfriend or was married, you know what I would do? If possible I would try to find ways to have a long evening with my better half. A nice dinner of her favourite stuff, maybe some ice cream or cake, a card and a little gift and spend the rest of the evening with her. All the things she would like.
If anyone would have a problem with that get of this planet you fucking idiots.
