Ludhiana:One would like to believe that to love is one’s right, but the idea doesn’t sound quite good to those who think right. Yes, it’s that time of the year again.
Fear stalk hearts that beats with love this Valentine’s Day, haunted as they are by memories of the moral police harassing them for the crime of dating and the looming threat that they will strike again.
Recent years abound with examples of goons bullying couples celebrating the global day of love, often blackening their faces and roughing them up for defying tradition.
During the Valentine week, many of the well known organizations may found opposing the trend of celebrating Valentine’s Day and the rest of the days before Valentines like Rose day, Propose day, Promise day and many more such days have become a new trend for the lovers to flaunt their relationship through meetings and gifts. The members of many cultural organizations have always come between those who used to celebrate the week of Valentine. But many of the times, the children of these members are found celebrating the Valentine week from Rose day till Valentine day which is quite comic.
A young boy, Ankit (name changed) whose friend is the only child of head of a well known cultural organization member revealed, “Last year my friend’s father took out a rally to oppose the trend of celebrating Valentine week. At the same time, his son was with her girlfriend hanging out on Rose day which made all of our friends confounded. This is such a humorous thing ever happened in my life.”
“All that glitters is not gold” is all I can say on this, he further added.
This is the truth of many of the organizations which only come out in front of people to seek attention and nothing else. If their motives are true then why don’t they teach the lessons to their own family?
It’s easier said than done; the phrase perfectly goes for those organizations that only speaks but never implement such teachings in their own life. Many of the city’s young couples even said that first these members have to prove that they or their family members are also against it before stopping others to celebrate such trends.
