So it's that time of the year again when Teddy Bears and 'I love you ' cards come out of Archies shop. When coffee shops, malls ,roads ,parks , footpath are packed with people in 'love'. When every music channel gives scores of CD/DVD options to gift your valentine.
And it is that time of the year again when I along with a group of friends sit m(ostly at Ansal Plaza) staring at people celebrating this festival of love. The heart shape ballons appear to be smiling (read mocking) at us. Invitations to parties clearly ask us to stay away. 'Losers 'appears to be the word for us.
None of us in the gang cribs about the 'single' status each one of us bears. except on this day.
And it's nothing more than the inability of being a part of this grand festivity. Though a lot of us argue that we can anyway celebrate the day but the reasons do not seem convincing enough. So, we all get together cause we think losers sit at home on 14th of feb.
A friend on gtalk (not part of the gang) questioned me "Is being single a crime?"
Another friend said the celebrations do not bother him since he is busy attending FOSLA meetings on every V-day.
