Now, you might think that Valentine’s Day is perfectly suited for a romantic like me. Well, you’re right, but only in some ways. Honestly, I think Valentine’s Day is a tad overrated. But the one thing I really like about it is that it acts as a reminder not to take someone for granted and to let them know they are loved.
I strongly believe that you have to let people know what they mean to you on a regular basis which is why I believe that Valentine’s Day is like the icing on an already - baked cake! It’s the something extra that you do to make the ones you love feel special. I speak for myself when I say that irrespective of how many times my friends or family tell me that they love me, I get all warm & fuzzy when they do something for me on V-Day! And I’m sure they feel the same as well.
I loved it when my fried, Mamta gave me a rose on the Rose Day; when I got so many hilarious proposals on the Propose Day; when Pooja, Princy & many others gave me chocolate on the Chocolate Day; when I got cute teddies on the Teddy Day; when my closed ones promised to keep me happy on the Promise Day; when I got so many Jaduu ki Jhappis on the Hug Day (it was my mom’s birthday too, which made it extra special; also, Esha di came back from London ensuring that the day turns out to be fab!)
In our heart of hearts, I think we’re all romantic – in varying degrees, of course! The only advice I can offer is to enjoy the moment, enjoy the thought & the effort that someone special is putting into a day like this, enjoy the emotions and, most of all, appreciate that you have the privilege to love someone and be loved in return. Not everyone does!
I am a post-graduate in English & Communication Studies. I love writing about anything and everything under the sun. It is a passion; a compulsion; something that gives me an avenue to express myself. I write when I am happy; when I am angry or when an issue touches my heart. I write when I am restless or when I am on the verge of breaking down. I also love to sketch and click pictures.
