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.

Had enough and now needs a nap

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 🙂

It seems I took Duke Orsino’s advise a bit seriously when I was reading Twelfth Night during my school days.

While I exactly cant recall my birth however am sure after 5 years down the line was sure about having some favourite number of Bollywood songs and whilst it was the 80’s era so there was a boom in disco.

Music is my weakness and I used to spend most of my time listening to music, I had a record player HMV one ( vinyl player, turn table) , which was my best company and I used to play songs till my neighbours complained and was very proud to own it. Again I was lucky as my parents did have little interference  I used to listen to music thereafter to the rest of my life, still I am listening classical while writing the post. .

Kaushiki & Parthasarathi sings Hamsadhwani (Lagi Lagan)

Kaushiki is a perfect example of divine beauty and golden voice and rules the classical world.

I have still preserved the records and feel very proud of them as it is almost extinct now, memories are attached with them.

Then came the 90’s when I had developed the liking for Bee Gees, Richard Marx, Bon Jovi, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Def Lepard and Johnny Cash( country music) and many more. I always loved the way Johnny Cash introduced himself before every song and concert, “Hi! My name is Johnny Cash”.  I also recommend if you can watch Walk the Line, a movie based on the life of the singer.

I enjoyed writing this and hope that you would have equally enjoyed reading it.
