On Saint Valentine's Day




Do lovers need to express their love on any one particular day?? Why did Pope Gelasius I established this day? To honor several Christian martyrs?? Or for us to follow it blindly till date?? Well do we really believe in this concept? Or we take it as another day to indulge in extravagance? Ah... well what did you buy this time to impress your beloved?

 Did you check with the price tag? How much does a Red rose costs today... where would it be cheap? How much for a kg of rose petals? Rs 200  at one place and Rs 40 somewhere else.. Ah, really? Why can't same love be expressed with same  monetary amount. Does the intensity differ if u gift a diamond necklace or just a bouquet or only e- greeting card? Btw how many sms(es) floats on this particular day? Good revenue generation for telecom department and various service providers.. Ultimately somewhere down the line you need money to express your feelings. So is it the trade off between money and love?

To My valentine
With you I would Dine,
If you gift diamond with shine,
Else many are waiting in the line .



Well taken, when one goes another comes... Line lagi Hui hai...Love is the same, just recipient changes.. lol


P.S: When love is immortal, celebrate everyday.. You are never too old, never too young to celebrate it every moment. Love you near and dear ones as long as you exist. A simple passionate hug works too ;)

Adding few lines by my dear friend (Gaurav Nagesh), he expressed everything I wanted to scribble

Valentine ke din university campus hote hue jana,
Traffic signals pe heart shaped balloons ka lehrana,
Sadakon par haath thaame navyuvakon ka mandrana,
Unka police ko dekh, dur ho jana aur aankhein churana...

Red roses aur foolon wale bhaiya k achanak bhaav badh jana,
Aaj sabka cute dress with a red touch pehen ke college aana,
Aur kaiyon ka bewajah hi kisi ummeed mein taiyaar hojana... #yeah :)
Campus mein bade groups ka chhote chhote pairs mein badaljana,
Bichare long distance walon ka pure din phone pakade nazar aana
Haare hue singles ka valentine's day ke upar hi sawal uthhana...  #eee...Did I ?

Achanak se saale alsaaye mausam ka shayerana ho jana,
Phir yeh sab dekh humne apne dil ko samjhana...
"Har din ki tarah aaj bhi koi rang dikha raha hai zamana"

Killing me softly with his song

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him, to listen for a while
And there he was, this young boy, a stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever, embarassed by the crowd
I felt he'd found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there
But he was there, this stranger, singing clear and loud

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
