Last year, I couldn’t be with my (cousin) Sister for the Rakhi Ceremony. Boy! Did it take some cajoling to get over! This year around, I’ve kinda made amends and what’s more, both us brothers were present which made the occasion all the more special. Even though its a once-in-a-year occasion, the bonhomie and togetherness that one feels on such days, when the whole family is together, is very very special. Happy Raksha Bandhan to all!!!
On a sidenote, I remember last year, a Google Image Search for “Rakhi” would yield more pics of the festival and less of the femme! But that’s kinda changed this year….more femme all around. And in case you’re wondering who’s the femme here, just do an Image Search for Rakhi and you’ll know 😛
Coming back to Rakhi – The Festival, I’d like to share here two images – one from Flickr and another, an older one that’s been doing the rounds on Email forwards for quite some time now:
