The Pandemonium About Valentine’s Day
So January has ended. Needless to say, February will approach soon and so will 14 Feb. So all the committed boys and girls will throng gift shops and run helter-skelter to choose that perfect gift for his/her partner.
A very common stereotype is chocolates and stuff toys for girls and a watch or deodorant (to prove a guy is macho!) for the boys. Even if you haven’t had a one-on-one talk or spent some time with your partner, this gifting ritual is very essential. After all, what will you tell your friends? That it was 14 February and you didn’t gift anything to your boyfriend or girlfriend because of inflation. Nah! That doesn’t work.
This question has popped up many times as to why do people blindly spend huge sums on choosing gifts for their loved ones and that too only on 14 Feb? I am not getting preachy and threatening the youngsters to stop celebrating valentine day like RSS troops!
My only concern is that there isn’t any single day that should be celebrated or hyped as the day of love. You don’t need expensive gifts and branded stuff to show how much you love a someone. Moreover, even if you plan to make things special for your partner then cook a dish, gift a hand-made card or simply sip a cup of chai (cutting!) at a place and spend some time with one another.
And you DON’T need to do either of the above said things on 14 Feb. It could be any day and any point of time. The quality of time spent is way more important than the quantity. Who knows, these small things could become cherished memories for years to come.
