Love, especially between man and woman, has never failed to be less intriguing since time immemorial. This much-hyped culture of celebrating Valentine’s Day has added a new dimension to it. Perhaps a stream of romantic imageries and fantasies made an ordinary shepherd a poet, an ironsmith a philosopher. The charm of love gets more intense when it is rightly supported by the backups of sacrifice, mutual understanding, and tolerance. A wisdom that ‘don’t expect what you want from your beloved but readily accept what she/he has’ is definitely very important in love. A true lover is a generous and kind soul that just showers the warmth of love without any expectation in any aspect.  Rightly, a lover can’t be a beggar.

But however, one is full of doubts if the love phenomenon these days is really carrying any proper sense. Looking at the filth of sexuality abnormally permeating the whole environment I don’t think that the blossom of love will ever be perpetually blooming. Just think why a solemn and exaggerated love-marriages of celebrity couples — Britney Spears and Kevin Federline did not last even for a couple of years. There are endless celebrities, such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt,  Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris.., whose marital castles just fell like playing cardsWere they not sharing the “Valentine gifts” and singing love songs in a chorus? Why such celebrated lovebirds have been separating so easily, so early. Yesterday’s sweethearts just become bitter-hearts today. I believe perhaps something nastily vulgar phenomenon and environment overcharged with blatant sexualization and objectification are invariably preventing the flower of love to remain in eternal bloom. Needless to say, “sex” has been so heavily demonstrated and abused, the solemn marital relationship is now in the throes of chaos and acrimony.

Well, nevertheless, in this time of festivity, I fervently wish this much cherished day of Valentine be solely intended for strengthening the bond of love with a complete sense of discipline and purity. Let this day serve to inspire each loving sweetheart to be more truthful to her/his beloved and help shed all the trappings of titillating modernity which perhaps only serving to defile the purity of love.

The funny side of impressing women

Bruce Rowley was arrested as he left Taylor's home in Rhode Island a few days ago. Bruce, you do NOT impress wealthy women by throwing cash over the fences of their mansions. You throw property deeds, credit cards and in your case, I think vasectomy papers would be essential.

Useful tip: Guys, end every sentence you speak to a woman with, “But I could be wrong”. This saves time. Example: “Good morning! But I could be wrong!”

That thought was inspired by a news item I just read. A man robbed a bank and then threw some of the money over singer Taylor Swift’s fence “to impress her”.

More evidence that most men have NO IDEA how women think.

It reminded me of a case in India where a young man stole a train for his girlfriend. Ketan Kumar, 24, thought his beloved would be pleased to be presented with the 8.20 p.m. express to Amrapali. Sadly for him, both girlfriend and police were significantly unimpressed. Ketan, buddy, you need to know more about how girls think. Big, ugly steaming lump of metal? Great for guys. But for girls? No.

A colleague, hearing about this column’s topic, forwarded me a news video from Chechnya. It shows a five-year-old boy walking down the street hand-in-hand with his girlfriend. He swiftly breaks into a car and turns on the engine to show off. The five-year-old girl, way smarter than her companion, swiftly backs away while he drives off, pursued by adults.

This all adds to the tonnes of evidence that males are born thinking women are impressed by extreme stupidity and immorality, and it takes us years — let’s be honest, decades — to realise this is not the case.

Young males should take advice from fathers of girls, who are forced to learn something about the young female brain. For example, I now know that fathering a daughter means pretending you’re thrilled when they spend half your salary having an eighth of an inch cut off their hair. The tricky thing is that they don’t tell you whether they’ve had an invisible haircut, their eyebrows plucked or a complete head transplant, but just burst through the door saying: “Well, Dad, what do you think?” You MUST reply: “It looks great” and then leave the country before there are any follow-up questions.

In fact, when a young woman asks her father for his opinion on any matter, what she is really saying is: “I wish to hear my opinion repeated in a deeper voice.”

Stop press: A colleague forwards another example. On April 24, several media reported that a man named Zach Doell decided to pick up his girlfriend from the University of Louisiana in a different funny vehicle every day, including the Batmobile, a car that looked like a giant hot dog, and an ice cream van.

He thought this was highly impressive. His, er, thrilled girlfriend Brianna Garcia told the media it was “embarrassing”.

So there you have it. It is this columnist’s fervent hope that this information will help young men and young women understand each other and communicate better.

But I could be wrong. (IANS)
