Valentine's Day is a very western idea and many Indians from the older generation do not take the pains of actually doing anything special on this day. Some just word out the famous Govinda dialogue, 'Every day is Valentine's Day'. While in theory, it sounds fabulous but reality is far from it.
In our busy world, a simple 'I love you' also feels like a task and most Indians do not believe in showcasing their love (I know I am generalizing but one does learn from their environment). So this is for those people who are yet to say a Love you or celebrate their first real Valentine's Day in spite of being married for years. Try something different this time and I can bet the wife/husband would be touched and feel special.
The pressure of creating the perfect day may be one of the reasons why couples do not take the pains. Thus if you are one of those lazy or practical ones then you can go for a movie marathon. Start off the day with 'your' song. If you don't have one then don't sweat. One can always tune in to Shania Twain's ‘When you kiss me’ or Careless whispers, Let's stay together by Al Green or the evergreen 'When you say nothing at all.' Just waltz around early in the morning and start the day with loads of giggles and love.
The movies to follow should be Notting Hill, The Vow, A walk to remember, Music and lyrics. For the people, who love classics Roman Holiday, Pillow Talk, Breakfast in Tiffany, War and Peace should be in your list. I am surely not forgetting the people who love everything desi. DDLJ, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Jab We Met, Dil Toh Pagal Hai and Kal Ho Na Ho can never be watched too many times. You can spice up the marathon with some good food but if food is too mundane a topic for you, then you can always forget about it and order something from the nearby Chinese place. Make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one!
