Today is Hug Day on the Valentine’s calendar. It’s the day people spread love and affection through warm hugs… not that you really needs a day to hug your loved ones… but then again neither do you need a day to celebrate love, do you? Even so, here we are and the hug remains the most classic sign of love, friendship and affection. But as the perfect build-up to Valentine’s Day, this day gets people warmed up for the big celebration two days later. This is also the time many people around the world offer free hugs to comfort those who might be in need of pepping-up. While the concept has not gained a lot of momentum in India, it is interesting to observe the response of people when someone does try it once in a while.
