Love rather than hate

Love is a very basic emotion in human beings. We also know that animals like dog, cat, cow etc and birds also show expression of love for their own breed as well as for humans. Very existence of society is due to love among fellow human beings. As love is a universal phenomenon, there is love between parents and children, between students and teachers and so on so forth. However, the concept of love has been exploited now by depicting as love only among young couples.

This narrow definition of love has made love a very cheap commodity which can be expressed by giving a gift to the beloved or spending Valentine Day with one's fiancee. It is likely that the commercialisation of "LOVE" has found many opponents of Valentine Day. One philosopher had remarked that all the problems of the world can be solved by four letter word love. Let us celebrate Valentine Day every day of the year and love each other rather than hate.
