Dear lovers, don’t drop the pretence.

Love is what you assumed Leonardo felt for Kate in Titanic. Love is what burnt Troy. A fulfilled love story inspires marriages that are filled with ‘awwww’ moments, but an incomplete one inspires generations to love. As strange as it may sound but the couples by whom most lovers swear by – Romeo & Juliet, Heer & Ranjha, Laila and Majnu, didn’t really end up marrying. So most lovers know how to love, but they don’t know the next step.

And then comes Valentine’s Day. A day when every lover gets the license to upgrade their relationship. Teenage lovers propose for love, couples in their early 20s propose for a commitment, while their counterparts in the late 20s propose for marriage. And then there are those hardcore lovers who believe in living in the present. So they make love instead of making a commitment.

But people graduate from colleges. They get into workplaces where they believe that they have matured. They believe that for lovers, every day is a Valentine’s Day. They believe that lovers don’t need a special day to express love, because with each other every moment is special.


You don’t send flowers to your lover every day.

Nor do you send chocolates.

And you definitely don’t take her out on a long drive or a candle light dinner every day.

You don’t even attend her calls.Yes you can blame the frenetic times, the offices, the tuitions, the promised billiards game, and the Teen patti, but you cannot deny the fact that you don’t make your lover feel special every day.

Which is precisely why I believe in the importance of Valentine’s Day. It gives us something to look forward to. Some excitement in life. A chance to start afresh. A chance to rekindle a dormant spark. So I suggest don’t drop the pretence, send her flowers (sponsored by Ferns and petals), cards (sponsored by Archie’s), and chocolates (sponsored by Cadbury’s). Because every day is not a Valentine’s Day.

P.S. – The above note is for people in a relationship. Dear stags, Happy Vaseline Day.

  1. hahahhahaa, happy vaseline day is so kool…
    Im sure gonna use this for stags, in future (for ref )

    Joy, great going.. always love to read ur piece… and eagerly waiting for the next one… may be holi wotsay ??

    But ppl like me who is happily settled, celebrate our valentine’s day everyday – in cooking, cleaning, pyar bhara nok jhok, abhimaan, giggling, laughing, last but not the least.. missng each other while away for offices cores 🙂

  2. Well, you definitely did make your clients Ferns and petal, Archie’s and chocolates Cadbury’s feel special with this post, didn’t you 😀
    Last Line, killer catch 😉
    To add to the bank of Mr. Writer of this post, my bf makes me feel special daily. He doesn’t know that he is doing it … the day begins with his mocking my minor-to-major flaws. It is his way of telling me that even the insignificant-in-me catches his special.. and worthy of his love :))

    Cheese loaded talks, flowers and mad-display of affection are not the only ways of being in love. Hence “with each other every moment is special.” is not bullshit in totality !! :P:P

    Loved this post. Speaks for a lot of minds and hearts out there :))

  3. I so agree with you on this “most lovers know how to love, but they don’t know the next step”. Its easy to fall in love and profess it takes a lot to keep and nourish it.

  4. Oh finally someone has articulated my thoughts. Totally agree and GLAD to come across a guy who thinks on these lines. A refreshing change from all the men who think its pansy and a waste of time. TAALIYAAAAN!!

  5. ferns & petals, archies and cadbury’s…. y not others? 😛 r u advertising for them? 😉

    but i loved the writeup…. looking forward for many more.. 🙂

    though P.S does not apply to me 😉
