Valentine’s Day

It was a nice bright beautifull morning. You know one of those beautiful mornings when you step out and go for a stroll.
Strolling in a park wondering what I would do on another lonely Valentine’s Day.
So now I am walking in the park and a small child about three years old gives me a rose. Wishes me Happy Valentines Day and turns around. Yeah before you go all Awwh .. the kid turns around to see her mother slap herself on the forehead. And she calls out the name of another 3 year old kid a few feet behind me whom the girl was supposed to give the rose to.
The kid looks confused. I hand her back the rose and wish her a good day and walk along.
Since when did parks have so many kids around I wonder ! Then I wondered why shouldnt there be kids in a park. What is it with India where you find kids loitering infront of the television and PS2 and old people go out in the park.
More of that later…. So now that I have strolled enough along the park I decide to take a break and sit down on a bench. First ones broken. The other ones has be spat upon so …hmmm.
I sat on a rock. I dont know where the rock came from… but its obvious there were a lot of rocks around where people could sit on in this park.
Benches just were for something else I guess.
The 3 year old then handed an old couple a red rose and probably wished them Happy Valentine’s Day. I watched and smiled. I dont know if thats what Valentine’s Day is supposed to be or not. If its against our culture or if its western culture corrupting our youth.. but then this three year old kid seemed to make a lot of sense of the big V day than all of social commentators and politicians and experts at what not.

  1. Reading this made me wonder at the futility of facts… laid down by the self confessed moral-police of our society… that are fabricated with fiction.Keep it Up.
