Ever wondered what it felt like to be in love in the eras gone by?
On Valentine's Day, Rediff.com's Uttam Ghosh takes us down memory lane.
The Stone Age
The Stone Age man probably expressed his feelings by etching on the walls of his cave and carving and hammering out figurines.
The Victorian Era
Courting a lady in an age where chaperones were the norm couldn't have been easy for the Victorian man. But there is something to be said about dances at balls, romantic letters, love lockets, portraits, and poems.
The 1960s and early 70s
The era of bell-bottoms, long hair, psychedelic rock and free love continues to tug on our heartstrings.
Relationships of today play out on social media for the world to see. Every photograph must be shared, every tiny detail must be posted and every check-in must be documented.
Lovers may be seated at the same table, but they're often more connected to those who inhabit their digital worlds.
Technology is going to transform the way we love in the coming decade.
Be prepared for virtual love making and wooing each other in spacecrafts!
