Normally, you wouldn't see me talking about Valentine's day. I'd call it one of the useless celebrations out there, but that's just what you'd hear me say on normal occasions.
This occasion isn't one so.
For those who can make it possible, I suggest you go out with two girlfriends instead of one. And those who can go out with two, I'd recommend three. For those who can't, make sure you have at least one special person to spend time with.
And once you're out, make sure you hold hands and walk all over the park, sit on all the benches and do whatever it takes to pull in Shiv Sena's attention. Prove their foundation of beliefs wrong, because they don't realize it themselves.
Before I move any further, how's about we sit down and introspect about where all this is going?
Notice that Shiv Sena fails to work on emotions, and it has a reason for every one of its actions. Although, either they lose all confidence in front of the news cam. or have no clear reasons for what they're doing at all.
One of them reports that V-Day should be stopped from being "celebrated" because it's harming the Indian culture. If that's true, then he must also dislike boys from meeting girls in the first place, and to that, his first target must be the co-ed schooling system. So, why not just make boy and girl schools separate?
The other suggests that V-day is a display of vulgar activities. Really? What's so special about V-day at that? Is there anything that's keeping me from doing that on a regular Wednesday? Or is it allowed every other day except Valentine's time? If not, then why not take a brigade marching around everyday and stop male-female eye contact?
And the finest one of them all, "The boy likes the girl, and the girl gets married to someone else, but the boy remains lovestruck, so their parents suffer."
Perhaps Shiv Sena is just a conspiracy; a group of people who never had any luck in their love life, and they envy those who have someone to smile at. Perhaps they cannot bear all this, because they never had all this, in spite of wanting all this.
This Valentine's, say no to Shiv Sena.
Prove them wrong, guys. "Celebrate" Valentine's all week long.
