In The Name Of LOVE ...

Valentines Day was just a few days away... and it was indeed very surprising that this year, Bombay celebrated it in full swing with no disturbance from the anti-valentine Party
whatsoever..!! ;-)
Which makes me wonder...Its a day of love , and are the people really celebrating their love , or is it just for the sake of not being left alone in the whole frenzy..?

Anyways,Valentines Day is pretty much the same every year.There are couples holding hands, whispering to each other, gifts being exchanged and love being expressed..

On the other hand, there r singles, celebrating "Independence Day" ! :D and people staring
at them as if they have been plagued by some kind of a social paralysis...!!! Now, it isnt a
crime being SINGLE.. nor is it bad.. but just being seen alone on that day gets you a lot
of pitiful eyes staring at you!!

Then there are those typical uncles and aunties, who, have "been there, done that..." and
don't want their children to wander off somewhere with their better halves..!!

And offcourse political parties who take it to another level ... by beating up innocent
youngsters , as they believe that celebrating this day is against "Indian culture" !!
Frankly, I just think they are jealous as Cupid might not have struck them yet !

Speaking of myself, it was just another day for me. Being a FOSLA member (that stands for Failed One Sided Lovers Association.. :D dont worry it's just a hypothetical club..!!!), and having
recently renewed my membership :) , I wasn't really looking forward to this day. But when it
did arrive, I must admit that it brought me back some nostalgic memories that I didn't really wish to recall... I did enjoy with my friends though. Firstly , the CHIP issue got resolved that day. Then I had a great time with my college bunch.. laughing my heart out .. was online too for quite some time chatting as usual.. and finally I snuggled up in bed, thinking of how my day would have been if things would have taken a different shape...and
Ouch! That hurtt..!!
