V-day , marketing of human tendencies..



There are two basic things that an average human being tends to strive for ..

1. To acquire money, position, fame ...

2. To find a companion of opposite sex ...

I would say, these are complimentary. When the seriousness of career gets into one's head, the second tendency will subside... And once u find a companion, the first tendency will be very limited..

As today's globalised world implies, there is competition and marketing in all the segments. You cannot blame Archies or for that matter anyone , who popularised this concept in India. Its their right to do whatever business they want... But the bad point is that, this has influenced even children . Yesterday, i phoned home to find that my brothers( they're in 8th ) are excited abt these celebrations..They say that entire class ..mind you, 8th std ... is excited.. Isnt it a little bit early.. "The fourth estate doing too much ?? " . I dont advocate moral policing, because I'm a firm believer that the childhood and teenage experiences plus education should develop one's individuality...And this development is often filled with failures... If you learn out of those, tomorrow is yours..

Its good to go through these emotions..love,sentiments,solitude,companionship...etc. They teach u a lot. They really make you a better person. But there is an age and an occassion for all these..If u get caught in this before you are mature, u may fall. And if these fall comes too early, where u dont have the composure to get out of that pit, you may endup really in a trying life..

It is a false notion spread by media so as to make you believe that unless u have a lady/guy with you, you are not complete....Countless movies prophezing the glory of love in an immature way has added up to this. Life is VERY VERY much different from these silverscreen sops.

The ideal life partner should be some one with whom your frequencies of thoughts and interests match...And its not possible to identify him/her unless you have identified yours.. So the first step is in defining yourself..Identify what you want in life? And to get to that answer itself it takes some time..It is far from saying that I want to earn money/ I want to be CEO of something or anything like that. Identify your path..Put yourself firmly in that path .. And then , try for your other half...

There are people who question the significance of having a day like this.. But, then I would say,I've no objection to that..Why do we have independence day ? To make us aware of our history and all that we enjoy now are the result of the efforts of those great people..Symbols like that play a great role in imparting the right kind of values... But V-day celebration, is definitely imparting a wrong perception in youth about love.. Read the history of Valentine's day.

To stop on a funnier note .. One SMS i read today "Dont overdo Valentine day celebrations..Children's day comes exactly nine months after this"...

So, for those who believe in this ...
"Hope u had a good valentine's day"

Yes.. thats true.. and the love you've taken here is just wrong examples.. unfortunately, those are many in our day-to-day experiences. But there are 'true'lovers too.

Anyway, i dont want to comment much on it.

Mainly, ur words about life, individuality are so true, man.
Definitely, u r a person who unedrstands life much, than unconscious-living. Gr8. Post such things often!!

Gr8 words..esp. abt life and individuality.

No comments abt V-day,as true-lovers are not considered and only the wrong examples are considered here. But those words are also true - for those wrong examples.
