Why and how is Valentine’s Day celebrated?
They all go mad in love on this day,and can think of nothing but how to please their beloved. It is recorded that business of jewelry takes a big jump during February.
So does the business of flowers, candies and cards. Every other gift that can be thought of is bought across most of the countries of the world and is sent to the beloved.
What about others?
Valentine’s Day may be the most important day for those in love. What about others? Let us take a look at today’s world.
Wars, terrorism, fear, murders, and every other destruction that can disturb a peaceful life is the norm. Open a newspaper, watch news on television or read it on Internet, the disturbing news is getting predominance.
It depresses the common person in the world. Isn’t it? What does a common person think of the future of such a world? Can anyone be optimistic?
Can anyone visualize of peace dawning around the world, countries co existing in peace with each other and no ethnic wars being fought anywhere?
What does one look forward to in such a world? I think that most of us have become so numb with disturbances, both man made and natural that we have stopped thinking of future. For a large majority it is “let us try to live peacefully today”.
Valentine’s Day and the world peace –
With so much destruction going around,, shouldn’t one welcome a day, when love reigns supreme? A day, when hatred and destruction takes back seat and one only thinks of love?
What if we begin a new way of celebration? Begin sending love messages to our enemies. Begin talking of love and peace and try something that can reduce our conflicts with others? Why keep the day confined to romantic love.
Take a step forward and make it a day to make every human being love another. Irrespective of race, nation, religion, etc.
Break all the outer barriers and try to touch the heart of all we can? Can this be done? Let us at least think of Valentine’s Day as a day, when all the hatred and enmity is forgotten and it is the song of love that is played around.
Is that not a big contribution of this day? That is why it is so important.
