V-day...duh!


Certainly not a post i wanna write about..Valentine's.. but i can't help it but to wonder how ignorant people are.. when i was in my schooling days..Feb 14 is relatively unknown..okie okie..its an understatement.. V-day not something celebrated in grand manner like now...i'm wondering what makes it so special to shower our 'loved-ones' with flowers and gifts..and i'm really sick of growing number of stalls selling pinky and redish gifts..plus with 'special' offers for diamonds and rubies..the cinema theatre, parks, restaurant (even McD) will be packed with couples lost in each other's eyes..i think if they can paint everything pink and red if given a choice to do so.. :P

Yesterday i was having a 'decent' but fiery conversation with a chat friend of mine... we were talking about V-day, marriage and stuff..then the conversation lead to the type of girl he is looking for matrimonial.. i was quite fascinated with the fact that he is looking for a 'homely' gal..i wonder what does 'homely' gal means in the first place..he said he doesn't expect his wife to wear salwar and saree everyday..at the same time, he is thinking twice when i ask if baby-tees are 'allowed'...kekekeke..funny guys...

Now, why am i narrating you that incidence? its because i feel many (not all) guys don't understand what a gal needs.. they make their own assumption based on what is going around them.. but each gal is different, with different character.. how many make a point to understand the gal beside them? you bought roses, chocolates , jewels and in some instances, sexy lingerie..but is that what she wants? ask yourself..and ask her what she wants.. you'll be surprised...

Okie..now, don't comment/email asking what i want for v-day.. its not roses, its not chocolates (although i'm crazy about ferero), its not diamonds (although i've just lost a ring :(((( ), its not a lavish dinner in a fine restaurant, its not even a quick 1 1/2-hour romantic movie in local theatre.. its your time and attention..not for a day..for a long time to come.. look at my eyes and tell what u have inside ur heart...is that too much to ask?

visithra said...

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyy i was first - for the first time on ur blog - woopieeeeeeeeeeee

oh well I think valentines day is ok but not all the gimmick that comes with it - dear god do u need a specific day to get stuff? - well we call it the international rip of bloke day n the japanese rip of gal day ;)

no harm in wishing anyone though - coz thats what it should be a celebration of love not of who got the most expensive gift

so amu may we always be friends n happy valentines day ;)

happy valentine's day

praveen said...

i was quite fascinated with the fact that he is looking for a 'homely' gal.

hmmm...i've heard a lot on this one..escpecially in UPM...if you adorn a punjabi suit often, then those fella's would definitely think that you're one of the "homely" types..

what does clothes have to do with anything,anyway??u know amu, a few ppl thot i was 'conservative' and 'homely' cause i used to wear punjabi suits often..grrr

come on man, me...'conservative' and 'homely'...if anyone that truely knows me hears this, they'll probably vomit out blodd..lolz...i wanted to laugh at that comment myself

praveen said...

ooh...by the way, happy valentines day

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

:)

visithra said...

I think it has something to do with the overly affectionate vday couples

the ones who refuse let go hands that u end up getting entaggle in them coz they came in ur way - n yet they re still looking at each other- the rest of the year theyre ok - what gives ud ask! Grrr

ooohhh i got a kisss yayyyyyyyyyyyyy

hehehe homely?? Men r weird especially indian men

unknown said...

susubala said...

I loved ur valentine post and its just a thought provoking for people who think V-day is just buying gofts and roses, but its something more than that to come through the lofe long relationship.

susubala said...

But I feel wishing somebody on V-day is not a harm. Its a pleasure !

tulipspeaks said...

tulipspeaks said...

@ ammu

they think gifts and choclates makes them happy..

well.. i think the same..but again, its not only them to be blamed u know.. partly its our fault too.. for not letting them know what we actually needs from them..



@ nanyaar?

but we can work on it.

ah..thats the spirit :P



@ jigal

Happy V-day my friend..

any ways i m agree wid u all girls r not same....

@ susubala
