WORDS RHYMING WITH ” VALENTINE”- I tried to test my vocabulary today by making an effort to recall some words which end in “-tine” and then see how they can be related to Valentine,which is the word for the day. I could recall words like Intestine,Serpentine,Turpentine,etc. Now let me see how I can relate these words with Valentine :
This hullabaloo about commercialization of Valentine Day,is not digestible to my intestines!
Lovers who want to celebrate,come what may,throng florists,cafes,cinema halls and pubs in long queues,which are so long that they can be called serpentine ! ( This day can also be a reminder about the episode about the serpant,Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden ! )
When you want to apply a thin coat of paint on a surface,you have to add a chemical called turpentine to the it.However,lovers today will wish to paint the town thickly red or pink,so turpentine sales business will be down!
Huge sized hoardings have been put in malls,outside hotels, on major road crossings, announcing about 50 to 80% discount on sales of gifts,dinners,parties etc to attract lovers.The size of such hoardings is elephantine !
There are those segments of our society,who want to protect our country’s sacred maryaada and would love,if those who flaunt their hearts on their sleeves today,are jailed—or put at least in quarantine !
I’ll end on that cheerful note….
