The advent of western culture has brought in our country special days which we celebrate such as Mother's day , Valentine's day, Friendship day etc.You are Pallav or Pallavi feel that these are wastage of time and money.Thus you decide to write an article for the youth forum showing your concern and stressing the need of our youth to awaken towards such extravagances.
Please answer fast.I need it urgently.

Such questions need to be attempted on your own to test your creative writing skills. However, these points might help you elaborate:

- We have undoubtedly borrowed and adopted many wonderful ideas from the western culture and broadened our horizons.
- But, blind aping of their traditions and cultures may not be beneficial, rather it could harm our social and economic structure.
- There has been much brouhaha over the extravagant wedding of a politician down south!
- But, the youth is paying no attention to the extravagant celebration of occasions such as Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc.
- These days have become important in the last two decades or so after certain business ventures and companies have promoted their celebration for personal gain.
- Gifting of cards, flowers, chocolates and other special and expensive presents is the norm that the youth follow on these days.
- They seem to have forgotten the Indian culture of always honouring relationships, not just remembering them fondly on one day in a year!
- Instead, they can profess their love for their parents, their beloved or their friends by doing something special with their own hands: cooking them a meal, making them a painting, etc.
- The youth can spend the money for better social purposes: buying woollens for the street children, gifting books and bags to the poor, etc.
