VALENTINE’S DAY

(14 FEBRUARY 2015)

 

Love has many manifestations.  When one is immersed in it, he/she gets everything in losing everything even the most precious one for us all. While we take love as a God’s gift, love gifts us many things in return. This return gift is all encompassing – a saintly feeling for us all.

 

While we are in love, we want to lose our everything for him/her. We do not care for our life, if that is at stake for earning the gift of love. We want losing everything including making supreme sacrifice for gaining the ultimate LOVE.

 

Valentine’s Day is celebrated on 14th February every year. There is a very popular account that a Christian saint was imprisoned and prosecuted under the Roman Law for solemnizing the marriage ceremony of soldiers who were not allowed to marry. Saint Valentinus performed the marriage of these soldiers and broke the Roman Law. There is also a legend that while being in the prison; he healed the daughter of the jailer named Asterius.

 

Legend have it that before he was to be executed he wrote a letter finally signing as: YOUR VALETINE to bid adieu.

 

May this day usher in indelible love to us all and removes doubts and differences from us all in fact without biases.

 

VALENTINE DAY

 

A love which dies not,
A love which sprouts without bias
A love which gives strength to all.


A love which cares not for caste, color or creed

A love which surpasses in every way we feel.


A love which paints everyone with humane brush

A love which gives a sublime love a gentle push


A love which is eternal and magical

A love which is not theatrical.


A love which asks nothing in return

A love which burns all suspicions in turn.


A love which knows only giving

A love which teaches all the true ways of living.


A love which cares not, even if the ultimate result is supreme sacrifice

A love which showers only fragrance.


Thus cleansing the polluted air around,
Spreading goodwill for all without doubt.


Which remains unchanged as time passes doubtlessly
Even slippery time puts its indelible stamp of its immortality.

,
Even slippery time puts its indelible stamp of its immortality.
Like the Love of Saint Valentine,
Who for love’s sake attained martyrdom,
For solemnizing marriage,
Of condemned soldiers,
For whom marriage was a bar
Under the Roman Empire law
And marrying those forbidden once to marry,
Attracted his imprisonment,
And earned ultimately martyrdom.

While in the condemned cell of a prison,
With his miraculous touch he cured the daughter of the warden,
Saint Valentine sent out a farewell letter,
With words eternal,
“From your Valentine”,
These words have become a brand,
Now for us all to express our love with a huge sprinkle of pride,
Lasting till eternity.
