Rakshabandhan is here! Celebrated in the month of Shravan, Rakshabandhan is time to celebrate the brother-sister bond and have fun in family gatherings. Rakhi, which is a holy thread of love and protection, is the main attraction of this entire festival. Sisters tie colourful rakhis to their brother’s wrist to strengthen their bond. In return, brothers promise to protect their sisters. However, this doesn’t mean that they would stop annoying their sisters!
Sisters prepare Rakhi’s thali for their brothers. Rakhi thali is basically a decorated Pooja thali in which sisters organize stuff such as roli (sacred coloured powder), chawal (rice), sweets, diya and rakhis.
Though online shopping is in trend today but they couldn’t really replace the charm of doing something special for your sibling. Cook their favourite dish or present each other favourite chocolates, celebrate not only the affection associated to a brother-sister relation but also the friendship that you two share. Go shopping with your sibling or play your childhood games. Enjoy trying a hand at your old Mario video game that you used to fight at.
The everyday city life doesn’t allow many to meet their respective family members and close relatives. In such a scenario it’s the festival time that offers opportunity to bond with each other. So, Jaipurites visit your relatives this Rakshabandhan or organize some get-togethers to connect and show your feelings and love to the family.
