It suits every body. For people like us because it give us just another opportunity to celebrate, talk to girls and express our feelings. For the girls cause they are asked out, given presents and generally enjoy themselve. The buisness people are happy cause restaurant are overflowing, cards and flower sale is up, people are buying presents. Some anti social elements to come in news by resorting to vandalism. Some organisation by announcing presentation of pink innerwears. For people at QNA by asking inane question on V Day for others answering them, still for some others reporting abuse. When so much happiness and sense of purpose is flowing , why not celebrate this mega event. For the dogs will bark and the caravans will keep on moving.

The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. Though whole world celebrates Valentine day Hindu fundamentalists in India explicitly discourage it very much in lines with Islamic fundamentalists in Saudi Arabia where they regard the practice as un-Islamic. The cause mainly is hatred and fear of Christianity. These two religions feel that their religion would not be able to stand up against the onslaught of Christianity. It seems they have little or no faith on their own religion. Principle of love is the main basis of Christianity. They practice what they preach. Their religion is more tolerant than other religions are. Other religion profess what they preach, they do not seem to practice it. They do not want youngsters to celebrate Val ...more

Entire world, all news papers and TV channels owned and funded by missionaries want to propogate stupid valentines day on us. To express love why a day is required. Every second of our life we love, we live with love and hope. Resistance to valentines day in India is being shown in all muslim countries on TV cahnnels and interviews with RSS chief was shown to entire world on Al Jazeera, English channel. There are two religions christianity wants to destroy, Islam and Hinduism.
