Valentine’s Day equals “I love you”. Flocks of sheep dash to stores to buy overpriced roses, heart shaped chocolates, meaningless cards and designer lingerie. The restaurants see pound signs above every couples head as they double their prices and order in the cheapest meats. What a brilliant scene to picture as the schoolgirls open their umpteenth card, the boys all hope their handwriting has been recognised, and the husbands look forward to reaping their rewards.
I think Valentine’s day is a huge waste of money when we have a duty to show love to people we genuinely adore every day of the year. Does it mean more to people that their partner is a valentine’s sheep?
The leftists and liberal critiques of India believe it is unacceptable to show public affection and the promotion of such activities is evil (as in devils and demons type of evil). This is the same country that has helped the entire world with their famous book the Kamasutra. Which may I add, we are all truly thankful for.
