IDC Blogathon Winner- Deepti Sharma

What Valentine means????

Congratulation Deepti for winning this coveted prize!!! You truly deserve to be the winner of IDC Blogathon.

Every year February 14th is celebrated as Valentine’s Day. On this special day people

exchange gifts, flowers and card with the person they love. It can also be called the day

of romance and love. Lovers spend time together and express their love for each other.

The world is full of love; we just need to feel it all around us. Have you ever seen a bird

feeding its child; River demolishing its identity to meet the sea; Peacock dancing with

joy in the rainy shower; a smiling child hugging his mother after coming back from

school; an old couple walking along the river holding hands? All this happens every day,

and we rarely notice it. We are so busy in achieving our materialistic goals of life that we

ignore these joys of love that unconditionally surrounds us. Last year on Valentine’s Day

I felt such joy of love.

I was celebrating this day of love with the man of my life, my loving husband. Getting ready

for a romantic date and to our surprise, in the evening my 5 years old daughter brought

a flower for her father, kissed him and whispered in his ears “Happy valentine's Day

Papa”. He was speechless. Although she was not able to pronounce it correct, but it

was really cute. He kissed her and asked her as who told her about this Day. She very

innocently replied, “Kids were telling me down stairs, when I was playing with them that

today is valentine day, I asked what it means? They told me that on this day you have

to give the flower to the person you love the most in this world. I thought for some time and

then plucked the flower from the society garden and came running to you”. He asked

with curiosity that why she came to him and not to her mom(me) with the flower, as she

always says that she loves both of us equally. She laughed at her dad and said, “You

are a kid papa, don’t you know that girl has to give flower to a boy and boy to a girl.

Mom is a girl like me, so she can’t be my Valentine”. He had tears in his eyes. He

hugged her, kissed her and said this is the best Valentine’s Day of his life.

Her meaning for love will keep on changing with age. She will grow up and find her

valentine some day. But her dad would always be proud to be her first valentine. I was

mesmerized with her unconditional love and cuteness of her thoughts. That day I

realized, love is so beautiful, so pure and so divine. Love is eternal, it is an expression

which can only be expressed but can’t be defined in few set of words. It has different

meanings for everyone, depending on age and situation.  And I hope I am the only lady

on this earth, who is not jealous of sharing her valentine with the other lady.
