There goes by another valentine day n along with also go its sentiments. Me a stag n proud 2 b 1, but the recent developments have been pretty disturbing. Everybody is talkin bout ‘Valentines day’, I doubt how many of them even woke up 2 watch the parade on Jan 26th? Whats even more shockin is that google 4 ‘valentines day’ n u get 6,490,000 matches! worse even google changed their logo 4 a day! I had to do something bout it n decd 2 get to the root. I am a messenger of evil which means that my movements r restricted only to this world, underworld n hell. Wen i found out that the guy St.Valentine was in the upperworld i had 2 convince my boss 2 get me a pass as i had 2 get past the pearly gates!
Finally i enter the upper world n yea its huge, squeaky clean n blah blah.. But where’s the guy me after? Finally I spot him chattin with this short podgy guy u call cupid! I went up to him n wanted 2 beat him up but then saw something in his eyes! It was a strange feelin n my hand invloluntarily stopped. I dropped the idea of breakin his spine n we sat down 2 chat.
me: So u’re the guy whoz responsible 4 all this rite?
sv: well,My name is Valentine. I lived in Rome during the third century.
me: Tab ki baat hai? That was long, long ago!
sv: I didn’t like Emperor Claudius, the then emperor of Rome, and I wasn’t the only one!
me: Waz he a war-monger?
sv: He expected men to volunteer to join. Many men just did not want to fight in wars, notmany men signed up!
me: This must have made claudius mad rite?
sv: He thought that if men were not married, they would not mind joining the army. So Claudius decided not to allow any more marriages. Young people thought his new law was cruel. I thought it was preposterous!
me: I find it interesting! But lemme guess u were’nt gonna support it were u?
sv: Did I mention that I was a priest? One of my favourite activities was to marry couples.
me: So u kept marrying couples despite the law?
sv: It was really quite exciting. Imagine a small candlelit room with only the bride and groom and myself.
sv: One night, we did hear footsteps. It was scary! Thank goodness the couple I was marrying escaped in time. I was caught.
me: No regular workouts eh?
sv: I was thrown in jail and told that my punishment was death.I tried to stay cheerful.
sv: And do you know what? Wonderful things happened. Many young people came to the jail to visit me.
sv: They threw flowers and notes up to my window. They wanted me to know that they, too, believed in love.
me: Sentimental rogues!
sv: One of these young people was the daughter of the prison guard. Her father allowed her to visit me in the cell.
me: Can’t u find sum1 of your age?
sv: Listen now! Sometimes we would sit and talk for hours. She helped me to keep my spirits up.
sv: On the day I was to die, I left my friend a little note thanking her for her friendship and loyalty.I signed it,
“Love from your Valentine.”
me: oh! so that’s where it all started!
sv: It was written on the day I died, February 14, 269 A.D.
me: Now, every year on this day, 18-25 yr olds do outrageous things, humiliate themselves n their parents!
sv: Because they know that love can’t be beaten!
me: oh! c’mon gimmmie a break! u xpect me 2 take this bull-crap?
me: Just look below, ppl r goin crazy! Simple infatuations r misread as love!
me: Media, stupid movie-makers n card companies r makin a kllin, all at wat cost?
sv: I ought 2 agree wid u there, it’s being completely blown out of proportion! Pains me!
It was a different feeling talkin 2 him, but I no longer blame him! I am now after those movie-makers, mediamen etc who r misleadin the innocent n teachin them how 2 luv! I have lodged a complaint wid my boss n soon the case will come 4 hearing! A trial in the court of death is the worst thing anybody cud ever dream of! Well that’s all 4 now, n so-called lovers here’s wishin u a belated n not-so happy valentine day!
If u have been, then thank you for reading!
