I had little knowledge about the significance of valentine’s day. I heard about it for the first time in india during the days of my graduation many years back. I came to know it as the martyrdom day of saint valentine. It is mostly observed among youth to celebrate love.
I thought like why any specific day of the year when love is such a powerful force and great value to be celebrated every day of the year. By this time I was curious to know more about saint valentine and the significance of this day.
In our place where society is very conservative, It has always been under controversy as something derived from western culture and not originally part of us. There is strong opposition by different communities in india on this day and they feel it should be replaced as parents worship day.
I read articles on web to know more about it. Following are few good source of information.
