You have heard of birthdays, mother’s day, father’s day, even apocalypse day and now thanks to the saffron agenda against the Valentine’s Day, you will soon be celebrating Parent’s Worship Day!
And, as we all know that India’s calendar of festivity has been overflowing (even 365 days weren’t enough), hence the new Parent’s Worship Day or Matru-Pitru Diwas would be commemorated on February 14!
This decision has been rolled out by the Raman Singh government, which has had a long-pending agenda against Valentine’s Day.
The govt. has given standing instructions to all government schools across Chhattisgarh that February 14 from now on will be observed as 'Matru-Pitru Diwas' or the 'Parents' Worship Day' every year.
The government schools in Chhattisgarh had started this ritual two years ago after Asaram Bapu, now in jail facing rape charges, suggested to the chief minister that Valentine's Day should be replaced with 'Matru Pitru Diwas'.
However, from this year, the state government has institutionalized this practice. "Now, parents' day is being celebrated. No separate orders will be issued every year in this regard," a circular from the Directorate of Public Instruction, which controls the government schools, said.
As per the new February 14 rituals, parents are invited to schools where their children garland them, perform aarti, and offer them sweets.
Incidentally, just four days ago, the Hindu Mahasabha — in news for its failed bid to install the bust of Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse had issued a statement, calling upon the youth to celebrate Valentine's Day as Mata Pita Pujan Diwas.
The Mahasabha has elaborate plans against Valentine's Day celebrations. Couples found celebrating the Valentine's Day, dubbed as a 'foreign festival' by the Mahasabha, will face a variety of punishments. While a prompt Arya Samaj wedding will be forced on Hindu couples, inter-faith partners will have to sit through a 'shuddhikaran' (purification) ritual, the Mahasabha said.
Mahasabha national president Chandra Prakash Kaushik tolf TOI: "India is a country where all 365 days are days for love, why then must couples observe only February 14 as Valentine's Day?"

Senior citizens can also celebrate valentine day .

Age can only make hearts grow fonder.

Kizhavis are prettier than youngsters coming to think of it.

Those with Grey hairs can make make a fashion statement by walking the ramp and holding hands in the parks

While talking of moving away from the western influence,
it is better that we remember this unquestionable fact that
the concept remains the same though the theme is changed!

If “Kizhavans” stand and stare with splurging glare at young girls, they would spit and spree;

Out of experience, “Kizhavans” get a conciliated compromise of mind by looking at “Kizhavis”
ViralukkEththa veekkam!!

HERE IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL EXPERIMENT CONDUCTED BY SOMEONE SOME TIME AGO.

An old man entered a room to find a beautiful young girl there.
Guess what? He started chasing her all over the room.
The girls screamed and shrieked and ran out of the room.

Now a young man entered another room.
He found an old lady sitting there.
Her face brightened as she saw him and
she started chasing him all over the room.

Moral of these incidents...
I leave it to your imagination! :rolleyes:
