A Little Distraction From Egypt

14 Feb

A women in India, rioting against Valentine’s day, preparing to pop her red balloon.

On Valentine’s Day,  in America, we set aside time to express our love, spend time with our loved ones, and, overall, spend time and money to prove our love.  However, in India this is a day of resistance for a few political parties.  This is why they chose to oppose Valentine’s day.  They have the right idea.  Valentine’s Day is a Hallmark created holiday and completely commercialized, one amongst many of India’s points.  India also comprises a culture which is extremely old fashioned in where, a holiday devoted to public expression of love, isn’t exactly kosher.  So tomorrow, while we pass out candy hearts and deliver flowers keep in mind not every culture capitalizes on love.

    a) Now, you know how to hyperlink correctly!
    b) Add a video, photo or some other information, and be sure how India opposes Valentine’s Day is also within the body of your post, so your additional assets (video, photo, links, etc.) is illustrative but not the whole megillah.
