Matra Pitra Pujan Diwas is another celebration of Anti-Valentine Day. This day does not promote the celebration of love between couples but the love we share with our parents. Individuals wish their fathers and mothers on Parents Worship Day and spend time with them to promote the bond of parents and children.
