For this year Raksha bandhan i prepared different rakis: made of pure turquoise silk thread and leather string with a fragment of shell or hard stones:
Few years ago i happened to be at my friends Meenu home when she was still living in New Jersey. we had great time together around Manatthan and so on. Her husband is cool and nice so I wanted him to be my raki brother and gave him a bandhan with a candle and a raki bracelet in a dish in the kitchen. He was content and also surprised saying he was from India but did not really know anything about Raksha bandhan actually. So if youalso want to know about it just remember its real meaning: strenghtening a relationship of purity between a brother and a sister. Very simple and also outrageously useful for a society of people who like to have great fun and enjoy life in all its Aspects all the time! Enjoy your raksha bandhan time!
