The day of love as it is called Valentine’s Day, it was celebrated yesterday as a global rejoicing. Although this day of love is observed as the one covering all shades of life inclusive of parents, family, brothers, sisters and other kiths and kins, it is directed more to a romantic plain mostly involving love couples. The day is also considered as the most pious one for the purpose of marriages, or even formalising the live-in relationships. Romance is predominant as against the ritual love on such an occasion. The day is considered most auspicious even for the purpose of arranged marriages. Many a love lorns, felt somewhat disappointed on this Valentine’s Day for the reason that the priests diagnosed it as highly inauspicious with the result that the coupled had either to postpone or pre-pone their marriage to some other day which was found to be more auspicious for the purpose. There were also couples feeling contented with the exchange of rings only leaving the rest of the rituals to some better day from muhurat point of view. Lovers are normally of the kind hardly having any patience to wait any longer for alternative dates, and for that reason many of them went ahead with solemnising their marriage, come what may, nurturing a conviction that Valentine’s day is in itself most pious a day and there is no need to depend on some muhurat or the other. This day after all demands that let the love prevail in whatever circumstances it has to pass through.
