Economics of Valentines Days
First of all India is filled with festivals, we have festivals all the time. Some one at some place is always celebrating some kind of festivals, and if we dont have enuf we import festivals like these, stupid valentines day. Thou i m not sure if its ok to call this day a festival but i m unable to think of any other word. Anyway festivals are always good for economy, it increases consumption which is good. Festivals plays a very important role in economy the more of them the better, it triggers consumption beyond our means. One of the reason why india is not facing any recession, we have festivals throughout the year.
I dont know how all this exactly started and why some insignificant looser like St. Valentine has a day to his name. We would just assume that he has been lucky after his death. Most of the modern day festivals have their origins in rome. Btw jesus wasnt born on 25th Dec. Actually when christianity was being spread in rome, they already had some festival on that day, and 25th dec was propogated as jesus’s birthday so that old beliefs could be replaced..
Leaving that aside and moving to the point. I think that these fucking day was promoted mostly by greeting card companies, the same way they made up all the mother’s, father’s and other fucker days. So that they could increase the sale of their greeting card. And love always makes a lot of business sense, the amount of music, movies, stories created on the back bone of love is astounding, no other category could generate so much content than love. So love is good for business and so is valentines day.
After the greeting card companies milked love, media took over, media always wants content, the more the content the more profit. And love never goes out of fashion because its in our genes, and those hormones are really powerful. So its basically in every one’s interest to have a valentines day, i guess the jewellery companies also make a lot of money, not to forget flower and gift walas, Did someone mention condom walas? i dont think there is any significant increase in fucking activities, . You must have noticed that i m not going against valentines day, which i cud have done.
And there are people who are against this celebration of love (lol.. celebration of love, funny han) the muslims, RSS and bjp people, well christians are not against because there is an St. in front. So if i am against it you will club me into right wing group and if i m with it you will club me into loveria group. So i better stay neutral in this topic. So why do u think these people are against valentines day? I think that old people are against because they dont get erection and they are jealous at the thought that todays youth is having so much freedom, having sex all the time. And also there are some loosers who couldnt get a fuck buddy gf and dont want others to enjoy.
And Regarding my views, i dont subscribe to the idea of valentine’s day and neither am i against it. Afterall its not right to be jealous of other people. Certainly am some times jealous, but i need to get over it because i cant believe in love and stuff, basically because its very dangerous and secondly because its just maya. It will look beautiful in the begining and slowly as you get dragged in, it will be a daldal… Good for people who want to try it out but i just dont have the courage for that…We will go into detail in some other post. basically u will need to get used to me to really digest those views..
My recomendation is that every one should fall in love, its nice though there might be serious withdrawal effects but one should try it even if one fails at it. I would better stay out of it, because my story aint a love story, love stories are so fucking mainstream.
Happy valentines day.. hope u all have a nice time..
Gd bye, gd luck.
