With the month of love still upon us, I ponder over the frequently asked question.
What is love? Love has millions of definitions. Each person perceives and manifests it in his own way. According to me, love is the greatest emotion of all. Nothing is above this sweet and happy emotion. It’s also an unconditional promise, a lifelong commitment to someone – with no barriers of age, caste, creed, sex, whatsoever.
How do you know it’s love? Love can be felt by the warmth that fills the cockles of your heart. You know you’re in love when you indulge in sweet gestures and little things that may go unnoticed but matter the most to you. Holding hands, long hugs, shy smiles, shoulder kisses, the drive-safe texts, sweet somethings, and a lot more. It’s these tiny things that make you sense the loving and longing more than ever before. It’s easy to plan sophisticated nights out but when someone makes you feel really happy by just doing small things, that’s when you know you’ve got something really special!
So as the season of love continues to spread its sweet magic all around, I’m motivated to share some love quotations from a few of my favourite movies. Don’t just read them, feel them from your insides of your heart, and you might just fall in love too.
Hey my lovely readers. Hope everyone is doing good. There’s a lovely news that I’m waiting to share with you. I have crossed 15k hits on my blog and want to thank all of you for your love and support. I am profoundly grateful to this blogging community.
Yesterday being the Valentine’s Day, I guess all of you must have spent good times with your dear ones in special ways. I too went for a drive with my family and close friends to the beachside followed by a cozy dinner date. And yes I had an amazing time, especially after the very discerning 2020 owing to the pandemic. The one thing that I really loved was my Valentine outfit. Yeah, I wore this cute white silk shirt with little hearts all over and teamed it up with blue denim jeans and silver hoops. The gorgeous shirt available at VivanyaFashion – India’sFashionDestinationtotally stole my heart the moment I spotted it and I knew I had to buy it for Valentine’s Day. Secretly, I was overjoyed with all the admiration I was receiving. Also, because I was happily collaborating with the brand – being a blogger.

Valentine season is the most romantic time of the year. Love is in the air and all those struck by the Cupid’s arrow are waiting to say ‘I Do’ to their special someone. However, it’s not just about proposing to your partner, and I’m sure you too agree with it. Love is not just about going on the knees one fine day and expressing your feelings towards your partner. It isn’t momentary! Love goes way beyond that, it goes a long, long way with a whole lot of caring, sharing and making major couple goals with your special one.
With Valentine’s Day right here and you wish to express your love to that special one but are at your wit’s end, don’t worry. I bring you the quirkiest and most romantic Bollywood ideas to help you pop the ‘question’ at the right time. I’m sure these lovable Bollywood flicks will inspire you to plan a perfect proposal.
Bollywood Movie: Anjaana Anjaani
This film teaches you how you shouldn’t let heartbreaks stop you from falling in love again and find affection in the most surprising ways. Akash (Ranbir Kapoor) and Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) are two heartbroken individuals who go one night to end their lives but meet over a bridge and decide against that. They then go to fulfil their last wishes, and eventually fall in love with each other during this journey. The last scene of the movie where they both propose to each other in the middle of the ocean will definitely melt your heart! Aww!
Bollywood movie: 2 States
Take inspiration from Krish (Arjun Kapoor) from the popular film 2 States. He meets Ananya (Alia Bhat) in college and falls in love. But it doesn’t end there. Despite the two of them agreeing to the relationship, both have to struggle really hard to convince their families for marriage as they both come from different cultural backgrounds. But our lover boy is persistent enough to move to another state where Ananya lives and manages to get their approval for marriage. I think, it was the sweetest way to have family’s love and blessings too.
Bollywood movie: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
A film that proved that “every love story begins with friendship”. Set major couple goals like Jai (Imran Khan) his best friend Aditi (Genelia D’Souza). Jai broke all airport rules by coming on a horse to propose to Aditi at the airport, sang a beautiful song “Tera Mujhse Hai Pehle Ka Nata Koi” for her and almost arrested by the officers! I’m sure, his will make you fall in love with the idea of love.
Bollywood Movie: DilwaleDulhania Le Jaayenge
My list of best romantic movies can never be complete without the iconic love story of Raj (Shahrukh Khan) and Simran (Kajol). The story revolves around two youngsters who first meet on an inter-rail holiday in Europe. No, it isn’t love at first sight for them. Indeed, after the holiday Simran is forced to travel to India for a marriage arranged by her father. But our hero Raj doesn’t give in to destiny. He follows her all the way to India to woo his lady love and win over her father’s blessings too. Try this for your special one and I promise you a great happy ending.
Hey my lovely readers! What’s up? With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, all those in love are gearing up to celebrate the day with their special ones. Reaching at your Valentine’s door with gifts, flowers, cards or letters is so passe! So if going for a candlelight dinner or a movie date is not your idea of celebrating Valentine, fret not. With the whole of last year being so different and dramatic, I understand that you’re looking for dreamy ways to share some bright and happy moments with your special someone this year.
Here are five cute and romantic V-Day Date ideas that you can choose from and make your V-Day even more memorable.
Take a Dance Lesson Together
A variety of dance lessons are now being offered online. Choose the style you want – tango, tap, salsa or ballroom – and get grooving to the beats together. This will not only help you develop a stronger bond with your partner but also bring you both closer. Better still, you can set up a dance floor at home, play your favourite music and dance like there’s no tomorrow. How’s that!
Watch a Comedy Show Together
It is said that the couple that laughs together, stays together. So, this Valentine’s Day, ditch the traditional dates and book a comedy show with your partner. Sometimes even comedians enjoy talking about love and relationships, and I’m sure you will surely find something you can relate to. However, if you don’t prefer going out then curl up on the couch, grab a cosy blanket, switch on Netflix and get watching those hilarious stand-up specials along with some lovely food and drinks. Tch, tch!
Craft Something Nice Together
Who doesn’t love a handmade gift on Valentine’s Day? I’m sure most of us do. So, step up your game this V-Day and make your special one something that is super easy to make and yet meaningful to both of you. It could be a beautiful DIY gift such as a cute handmade card, a garland of hearts, handmade heart pillow or a photo booth.
Have a Bake-Off
Baking is an entertaining and constructive way to spend some time with your significant other. Instead of ordering something from the local patisserie, consider a fun and interactive cooking experience with your companion. You can also prepare some chits in cooking experience where you will provide each other a mystery basket of ingredients and set the timer. You then have to make something out of those ingredients and within the stipulated time. Finally, you both can also fill out score cards to decide whose cooking skills are superior. Brownie points for anything heart shaped, of course!
Do a Role Play Wearing Costume
This might sound a little different from the rest but trust me this is an incredible idea to spend your day together while having lots of fun together. All you need to do is work on a scenario together such as a female cop arresting a robber, a nurse and a soldier, an army man, and a doctor, a fairy and a joker etc., find the right costumes and settings for it and just act out the scenario and you’re good to go. I promise you’ll have the best time together.
Pssstt. Now here’s note for all those who’re single (like me!!). If you’re secretly wondering that this day shouldn’t have happened, then stop scratching your head as you can still rejoice this day of love by doing the same fun activities with your Galantines – yes, your gang of best girl best friends. No matter who you are it with, it’s all about celebrating and making the best of the day.
