A DAY OF GIVING AND RECEIVING LOVE-14th Feb,(St.Valentine’s day)- By…Dr.Sunil Chopra

A DAY OF GIVING AND RECEIVING LOVE-14th Feb,(St.Valentine’s day)- By…Dr.Sunil Chopra

The day of exchanging love and affection (St.Valentine’s day) is celebrated across the world on 14th Feb in the name of Saint Valentine (a clergyman) of Rome. Born in 226 AD, Terni, Italy he is widely recognised as 3rd century Roman saint, commemorated in Christianity on this day. Since long this day has been associated with a tradition of courtly love.

‘VALENTINUS’  is basically derived from the Latin ‘Valens’ synonymous with strong and healthy. Factually speaking valentine is a card sent anonymously to one whom you love or are attracted to on this day. Around the world candies,roses,hearts and other gifts are exchanged between friends and  beloved quite enthusiastically.

The history of the day can be smoothly traced to the ancient Roman ritual of LUPERCALIA (an ancient pre-Roman pastoral annual festival) that welcomed spring to the card-giving customs of Victorian England. It is thought that as a part of celebrations, boys drew  names of girls from a box and made them friends.

The Indian youth must keep in mind that this day is not just earmarked for sending cards/gifts only to your sweethearts but also to friends, members of the family ,husbands and wives .

Valentine’s day gives us an opportunity to express our love to all our near and dear ones. On this day in India too the stores look awesome, get beautifully decorated and burst at the seams with exquisite and exotic gifts and cards. Some children prefer to make cards themselves but slowly the custom of exchanging cards is dying a slow death.

Love, in any form – mother and child, brother and sister, husband and wife, boy and girl, etc is a wonderful and wholesome emotion. It gives one a feeling of being wanted, a feeling that he or she iesired.

Valentine day gives one an opportunity of expressing their love and affection for each other. It is not that we cannot express such feelings during the rest of the year, but a day exclusively dedicated to the celebration of Love is something all those who have fallen in love look forward to.

Great information about Valentines Day, now your readers know the origin Dr.Sunil Chopra.
There was time when boy and girl had true emotions,attachment,feelings and dependability about each other for every aspect of life. The hindi word ARDANGINI is a true true example of that life is only complete when two people join at all level of life.
With recent changes in the modern world there are some changes that has impacted the longevity of these emotions.

A well written article, though I wonder why to we have to follow western trends and celebrate love on Valentine Day only. I believe love for our parents, children , spouse and other relatives and friends is a daily need and is unconditional, full of trust and faith. It should be celebrated with small but significant gestures of love and care every living moment of our lives. Kudos Dr. Sunil Chopra

Very well said
We should exchange love and affection honestly to our near and dears

Girish Kukreja February 14, 2021 at 2:11 pm

The Day expresses showering peaceful LOVE & AFFECTION to love ones but few young people have become opportunist to disturb the atmosphere in the shadow of this Day but you have narrated the depth of the Day , Keep on dear Sunil Chopra

Dr.Sunil Chopra February 15, 2021 at 2:45 am

Thank you Dr Girish Kukreja.
You have very rightly pinpointed that some people in our country try to spoil such sacred days.Our love should be platonic and not always a sexual one.
