Disclaimer – I am not against this celebration & neither I have intention to hurt anyone’s sentiments but I am having some thoughts which I wish to share .

#saintvalentine #valentine’sday #morendaylove #mythoughts #myblog #blogs #emotions #love

Today everyone is celebrating Valentine’s Day, But I am sure , most of them are not aware of the origin or reason of celebrating this day.

Already lots of articles, Facts has been shared the history of Celebrating valentine’s Day. I wish to add some if these details here along with my point of view of modern day Valentine’s Day.

Origin of valentine’s day – This day is also called Saint Valentine’s Day or feast of Saint Valentine. There are different martydom storiesassociated with various Valentines connected to February 14,[3] including an account of the imprisonment of Saint Valentine of Rome for ministering to Christians persecuted under the Roman Empire in the third century.[4][5] According to an early tradition, Saint Valentine restored sight to the blind daughter of his jailer. Another addition posits that Saint Valentine performed weddings for Christian soldiers who were forbidden to marry. On the basis of our history & also the sacrifice done for the beloved , this day 14th February is commemorated as valentine’s Day world wide as the day of Love / Romance .

Modern Day love – Though the culture or traditions has been changed or modified But still this day is considered to be celebrated by couples with flowers & Gifts etc.. as I said earlier, most of them are not aware of of the story of Saint Valentine & sacrifices. Its really wonderful that we are celebrating “Love ” but without knowing the meaning of love . Do you think , gifting expensive flowers , chocolates or other accessories & Spending in expensive restaurant defines love? I don’t know others perception but according to my understanding , ‘No‘ it’s the lifestyle we are maintaining to show up the world. Because modern Day love is all about the flip side of one day story to update on social Medias.

I have witnessed couples fighting for Gifts (specially girls though I myself a girl) , for not getting a candle light dinner in an expensive restaurants , exotic travel destinations & comparing others way of celebration . Hardly people are concerned to celebrate this day by spending precious time with the loved-ones, understanding each other value & putting efforts for each other’s happiness in small things. And moreover this day becomes a revenue generating day for few industries provide different attractive offers for 7 days starting from Rose day to valentine’s Day & no doubt , they are gaining profits with the name of feelings or emotion ( selling emotions seriously!). 🙄

Valentine’s Week – I heard about this valentine’s week 4 yrs ago & Intially I found it bit exciting with the fact that 7 days with Different name of celebration following with Rose day 🌹, Propose day , chocolate 🍫 day , teddy day , promise day , hugs day , kiss day & lastly valentine’s day. Can’t someone propose with a rose 🌹 in any other day & why someone has to wait to express his feelings. I appreciate true feelings but why these day ? And the price of Roses, Teddies & gifts suddenly increase comparing to any other day. So this day has been changed to more materialistic rather than feelings.

Thought I did all of my research out of my curiosity to find out the origin of Valentine’s Week or when, why & who started this tradition, but not a single authentic article I found online. ( If anyone aware , kindly help me with the answer)…
🤔🙏

Unhealthy social media platforms

Hello everyone, I am not sure whether I am the only person concerned about ? My today’s topic is about Our social media whether for entertainment or for vulgarity.

From last few days, I was quite active in social media Facebook, instagram & YouTube. Finally I myself has concluded that I had wasted my precious time by watching unnecessary contents. Hardly 20% of the contents are useful for entertainment or knowledge where people are actually giving effort enough to express their talent. But Remaining 80% contents are full of with cringe, vulgarity & awkward videos . Though I never installed apps like tiktok, but if there is a platform is given to showcase your talent then people should use accordingly but I don’t know whether it’s a trend or trick to share weird videos to get maximum followers.

So indirectly we / people as followers prefer to follow these kind of contents? So we have changed our preference so badly that instead of watching post with great contents , we like horrible lyrics, vulgar ( soft porn videos) and contents without logic. I know people will judge me saying, ” if you don’t like then don’t watch “. I am not against of entertainment videos but with the name of entertainment , girls are posting sensational videos like porn star , vahiyat lyrics & only cringe.

Like censor board, these social media platforms should have some regulations & guidelines to post individuals contents. If such weird posts can’t not be excluded , then atleast there should be age limitation to enter to these social media platforms so that these cringe will not effect Kids .

This is my point of view which I have shared. Hope you all can relate to your thought process.

Are we in Digital Era- part 2

Hello Everyone,
As per my commitment in last journal of ” Are we in Digital era” I am back with the topic ” freedom of women & Feminism”

Before I will share my thoughts with you all, let me clarify one thing that I always take stand for women empowerment & rights reserved for freedom But at the same moment I am not on the same page of feminism to take advantage . If we are discussing about equality then why these additional advantages we required with the name of feminism!

Declaration – every individual has different perception and I respect every individual point of view.

In this so called Digital Era, we talk about modernization , change of Lifestyle & of course thoughts towards the standard of living. Information as per resources, in India the female literacy rate is approx 65% & only 29% of women in india are part of women’s economic empowerment. Till date few so called educated or modern family doesn’t allow their daughters / daughter-in-law to have any professional career or to follow their passion. Still we are living in male dominating country where household chores are considered to be done by females even if their earning potential is quite similar to men. Still women fight to be respected which they deserve whether at home or workplace & simultaneously they have to deal with the issues like sexual harassment , rape & dowry. So this modernization is not enough to initiate the change in our society .The only thing which need to be converted is our thought process to create a better society & developed country.

There is an another part of this controversy, “Feminism” – the equal rights & opportunity for women.
But unfortunately, few feminist has different theory to take advantage with the name of feminism & according to their theory men supposed to be hated & should be treated badly. Lots of arguments/ journals has been shared in this topic & again can not be concluded.

Are we in Digital era – part 1

We are living in 2020 , so called digital Era. Why so called? Because we have been acquainted with technology in our day to day life but still our thoughts yet to be updated .
This topic may be one of the controversial one but still i wish people will understand my perception towards this discussion.
Modernization has been attributed , our lifestyle & culture has been changed as per our convenience to show our standard of living but not for the betterment of Society.

My first topic of this controversial discussion is culture.
I am not against of accepting different cultures or traditions. Even I am always excited to travel so that I can explore different cultures, cuisines & Lifestyle. In this modernization or digital Era , we have accepted western culture including their fashion, food , language & way of living but still we believe in casteism . In India, today also people are against of intercaste marriage . We accept other cultures but it’s difficult for us to accept other caste. Isn’t it weird ?
Today also in india , untouchability plays a major role for dalit communities despite of their way of living articulate their stand to this society. This is a controversial topic which can’t be concluded & there is no end of this discussion.

My next topic of ” Are we in Digital Era ” will be freedom of women & feminism.
