Raksha Bandhan was a low key affair for us three sisters after our house partition. Sending rakhi to our cousins became a rarity keeping in consideration that they never thought and did anything for us. The whole foundation of Raksha Bandhan lies on a brother and sister standing, protecting and loving each other. That was always missing with our cousins.

Few years back, while I called my sisters on Rakhi and cribbed about not being able to celebrate this festival, their reply opened a totally different perspective for me. The little one said that why is it always perceived to be a “brother” who needs to protect, stand and help us? Aren’t we suppose to help each other as siblings irrespective of being a brother or sister? The middle sister added that we should celebrate the bond we share as the three sisters. Aren’t we the one who have stood for each other in every situation? Weren’t we the one who protected each other from any harm or adverse situations? Weren’t we the one who love immensely?

They both declared that if the whole concept of Rakhsha Bandhan lies on protection, love, belief and standing for your siblings then we should tie rakhi to each other. A daughter should tie the rakhi to her dad and mom since they are the ones who would always fulfill the Raksha Bandhan concept. Similarly a wife can tie the rakhi to her husband for the same reasons and so on.

I couldn’t agree much. Sometimes, it is not about “who” but about “why”? So, here it is to my lovely, courageous, brave and loving sisters. I love you and thank you for doing everything what you do and made me believe in today. Here is to the Appa who has always protected me and his daughter. Here is to every sister. Here is to every brother. Here is to every protector. A very Happy Raksha Bandhan ❤:D✨

Spread the love 🙂

  • Raksha Bandhan is not just a festival celebrated as a custom. Rather, this festival is a day to build new relationships with emotions. On this day, sisters not only tie Rakhi to brothers but they also tie Rakhi to those whom they wish to protect. Like in India, there are women in different places who send Rakhi to the heroes (soldiers) of the country and pray for their long life.

    • I agree and that’s what I am trying to convey and change in our future generation’s thought process. I hope people people stop blindly following the customs and look deep into the real reasons behind it. Won’t the world be a better and happier place then? 😀
