Love is in the air. As youngsters across the country prepare to celebrate love on Valentine's Day, there are many who term the revelries as going against India's tradition.

'There is no ban on love marriage in the country. We believe in love, and marriage is a part of Indian tradition that we have been following as a lifetime commitment. We are against lewdness during Valentine Day celebrations and the blind race to follow Western culture,' Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh executive committee member Ram Madhav said on Sunday.

'If a couple is in love, why don't they get married instead of celebrating the day every year?'
