Happy Rakshabandhan!! to all fellow mylotters. To all those who are not aware of the famous Indian tradition, i would like to say a little. Rakshabandhan (in short Rakhi), is an Indian festival when a sister ties a band/thread (called rakhi)to her brother`s wrist. The brother, in return, promises to always love and safeguard his sister throughout his life. Well, there are sweets and gifts also. Although, the sister-brother relationship does not need a band, but this fantastic festival is a symbol of the purity of this relationship and love. I have 7 sisters (including my cousins) and i was always happy to see seven rakhis on my wrist. But, this time, i am somewhat sad as i have just two of them with me now. Other five are either abroad or very far away so that they could not come. Well, i have got their greetings. Do you guys have any sisters or your gals have any brothers?
