Valentine’s Day was extra special for Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover. Karan Singh Grover made sure that it was the best day for his ladylove. With the theme of La La Land and red hearts, Karan kept a special party for not only them but also for Bipasha’s family.
The whole idea that Valentines Day is just another day to spend money on gifts and flowers and chocolates, is in our opinion, just an excuse for the ones too lazy to go out and make their partner feel special. Sure, you’re technically supposed to make them feel special every day, but what’s wrong with a little extra-special a few times a year, right? And no, it doesn’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. Read on for some inexpensive, and basically free ways to celebrate love this year, even though VDay may have passed by in a jiffy:
There we were again, across the table, facing each other. I was stealing glimpses of his new ring. My mind had almost exploded with memories heaving up, memories that weighed way more than I could accommodate. Not a single memory spared clouding my thoughts. The five years of our relationship were complete with events, incidents, and promises. Some events were planned, others were unplanned, some incidents brought joys, and others fused with tears, some promises kept, some forsaken. But all in all, it was a great time we had spent together.
“Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap,” Joel Barish had to say this about Valentine’s Day in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. A lot many of us agree with Joel, at least at some point in our lives. While the hype around February 14 can be exasperating, cynicism as well is somewhat off-putting; if you don’t want to celebrate, you can let the day pass peacefully, without giving in to the demands of a consumerist society. Nonetheless, Valentine’s Day brings us back to some of the evergreen romantic quotes from movies.
Love, in its truest form, will engage people in doing things they never knew they were capable of. Love, like wine, gets better with time. The most powerful among all human emotions made an emperor build a castle in the remembrance of his deceased wife, and on the other hand, boosted a common man like Dashrath Manjhi to fight out a mighty mountain, all alone, carving out a way across its core. History has witnessed, lovers taking that extra mile to immortalize their love.

On what inspires her…I love being inspired by what people are wearing.
