‘What did your husband get you for Valentine’s Day?’
Wondering why Valentine’s Day was celebrated in the first place, Twinkle Khanna wrote: “Valentine’s Day itself may have begun as an experiment. In some medieval version of a board meeting, there must have been a discussion about the drop in sales in the post-Christmas crisis and how they had to make people who were already broke to buy gifts buy gifts for the same people again with their next salary. On the other hand, the German philosopher -American Hannah Arendt once said: “An experience makes its appearance only when it is said. And unless it is said, it is, so to speak, non-existent.'”
Twinkle, who has been married to actor Akshay Kumar since January 2001, also wrote: “For all its consumerism, Valentine’s Day perhaps makes the abstraction of love more concrete. Although if you ask women who have been married for longer For a decade, the most honest answer to ‘What did your husband get you for Valentine’s Day?’ would be: “As always, a headache.” In fact, love may be the ultimate thought experiment. It’s a paradox in which accepting each other’s flaws creates an imperfectly perfect connection, with or without withered red roses and a card of Archie with two cartoon hearts winking at each other.”
