But, I am not going to start gushing over my lovely boyfriend in this post...this one is more nostalgic in nature!!!
February, apart from being the month of 'Love', during the school days was mostly the dreaded month, being the shortest, it was the month before the exams began in March.
So, in between the exams, or preparing for the exams, I used to always wonder and wonder more, about when am I ever going to get a valentine's day to celebrate?
You see, the logic was simple, I was not the pretty babe or the brat who had boyfriends following her all through school. As a matter of fact I was the Geek.
But, love and the day of love meant way too much to me. The very first physical card that I had sent Shayon after we had started dating, was the one that I had brought when I was in class 9th!!!
Yes, I was and still am smitten by the idea of love, and thanks to Yash Raj Films, Shahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and above all Dil Toh Pagal Hai, that every year after I saw this movie; I have been dressings up in pink, and dress up nicely, only to sit at home and study. And think about how, one day, I will go for a Valentine's Day!
Till that time, I consoled myself by buying lovey dovey cards and little paraphernalia to stay in the spirit of love!
Yes, it is a different thing to be in love, to experience love...
But it is totally different to be in love with the idea of being in Love!
