Our Raksha Bandhan
Our fun workout
23rd of this month marks more than a decade that my brother’s death did us physically apart. This ode denotes our love for each other. During our growing up years, as friends my age would have a tough time with their siblings and elder brothers in particular, I have always basked in the joy of having him as my brother.
We had a habit of holding hands and walking down the streets, for those of his not-so-close friends, it always felt like we were dating each other — something that we always had a good laugh about. Treasuring these memories and many more has been a way of life which I will continue to cherish through this walk of life.
Raksha Bandhan: An Indian festival celebrating the brother-sister relationship, celebrated with sweets, good food, a gift from the brother to his sister but most importantly the bond. The sister ties a rakhee on her brother’s wrist which denotes protection. It is mostly celebrated in India. Rakhee is a thread that comes in different sizes, colours and makes.
