RAKSHA BANDHAN – CELEBRATING THE BOND OF LOVE BETWEEN SISTERS & BROTHERS

Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi Purnima was celebrated across the country today. It is a bond, a symbol or bond of love between brothers and sisters. Sister ties a string in the hand of her brother and the brother is supposed to take care of his sister. Generally brother would also give a gift to his sister. You can read in more detail about the festival in the link at the beginning.

This Rakhi was special for us and our daughter Pearl, as she celebrated her first Rakhi by tying the band to Samarth. I wanted to share this and also to make you aware of this special religious part of our life which has very high importance and is celebrated with fervour across the nation.

Here are some snaps from the event and I hope you will like it.

I had a wonderful time since the weekend and till now, I have been driving around across places with my family and spent some good time enjoying my holiday sans internet and mobile. Try to spend some good relaxing time esp. without technology at your bay, it will be a wonderful experience.

Have a great day ahead and wish you all lots of happiness πŸ™‚
