Its valentine week that starts from rose day followed by proposal day. Teddy bear day, hug day, kiss day and ends at Valentine’s Day. There is a craze of shopping different form of love products from the market. Everyone irrespective of age or marital status loves to be in the idea of love. However, from past few years, the feelings have taken form of materialistic things. If you love, you shop, and if you don’t shop, you don’t even know the spelling of love. So, do you agree with the statement, Love is not a feeling, but business!
– Previously, people used to buy gifts for just one day and that is Valentine day. Now there is entire week starting from Rose Day, followed by Proposal Day, Teddy Bear Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day and Valentine’s Day.
– A simple flower given at any day is a symbol of love. Still, a red rose worth Rs. 10 is sold for Rs 50 or more on Rose Day. The merchants make huge money in name of love by selling simple roses.
– As per a research, love enthusiasts spend more than $17 billion on romance related gifts like cards, and jewellery, in the U.S. alone.
– Even the advertisement agencies earn good money by simply selling the concept that love products are promises that make bond stronger.
– Not only love, but all the other emotions like sadness during a loved one’s demise, celebrations of marriage and all others are business.
– Love can never be a business. It is mere false pretension of love that is used by the various industries to sell their products.
– There is difference between love and infatuation, and so it would be more apt to say that infatuation in today’s world is a big business.
– Every emotion needs to be expressed in some or other way. The market of such products doesn’t make love a business.
– True love comes from sacrifices, patience and caring for each other feelings, which can never be bought from market. So, the very idea of love being a business is false.
A candle light dinner at high-end restaurant, customized chocolates, and destination holiday packages, after all what are these? Will you call them expressing love, showing off or business of love? Going by simple concept of economics, where there is demand, there is supply. So, are people converting feeling of love into business? Well, it is a high-time; people should look around and get a reality check. It is ok to express love, but making it a business is not justified.
