Long ago, Saint Valentine was persecuted because he got the cravers of physical wants (human beings) married. This is an obscure anecdote which is either not known or forgotten. Anyways, the story remains concealed, but love doesn’t. People all over the world celebrate Valentine’s Day every year on February 14.
Not merely a celebration
Valentine’s Day is not merely a commemoration or celebration; it is more of a kind of a festival which transcends the boundaries of religion, casts and creed. Intrinsically, a festival of love and of the youths, it is full of glee accompanied by fervor and again carried off by the most intense feeling which is found in all of us-love.
A festival where Roses, lilies and chocolates play the roles of mediators, where grins communicate without any requirement for the words of the feelings are sharper than any words or rather say that words turn utterly a fiasco when encountered with the deepest feelings of love. It is a festival where we get an opportunity to revive our thoughts about love and try to define it in such a way that we are mutually bound into endless and incessant journey of togetherness.
But this interpretation of Valentine is hardly taken into account. It’s the day of Cupid- God of love with his army charging towards lovers with their bows and arrows to victimize them and hunt them with the arrows of love. This is a day for these lovers to start their journeys of affection and confess about their deed of love which is a sin for some and an act of purity for some.
Hues of the day
But everything is not as pleasant as it seems to be. There is much heartbreak as well. If someone wants to confess his or her love, then it might happen that he or she does so on account of another’s heartbreak. But love rises above the horizon like a sun which its piercing rays reaching all of us. There is a monotonous speed which is so effective that all heart harmonize to one tune.
This day is mostly celebrated in the form of parties, especially at night by youngsters in bulk and most of them comprise of teenagers. Teenage is a curious as mongoose and they are most curious about love and sex. They are rudderless guided by their deluge of feelings formed in their neurons and wander with glee derived out from lust and passion.
This is where this day looks a bit gaunt and gaudy, for otherwise it is a medicine to resuscitate the sleeping hearts and revive them into a new life, thereby letting them peer out from the windows of a new valley of life. Some face enormous change in their lives and some don’t even see and iota of the difference- it is all based on chance and luck which is believed in by many lovers.
Valentine’s Day is longed for by many every year and there are resolutions that are made on this day concerning the most sensitive word in the dictionary- ‘love’. Beware of its aftereffects.
