In year 2005, my brother’s wedding ceremony began during the final hours of Sravana Suddha Chaturdasi and concluded on Sravana Paurnami (Raksha Bandhan).
What followed a few months after the fateful day taught me that brothers need (raksha) protection too. I learned what it really takes to love a brother and be there for him during his toughest times.
Here’s a beautiful song which aptly describes how I feel about my brother
Since Raksha Bandhan 2005, I have been adopted as a sister by so many brothers that I’d have to buy an entire store if I had to send Rakhis to all.
Here’s a digital Rakhi and my warmest wishes to all my brothers:
I thank my parents for giving me Anil, a wonderful brother and the BEST. I thank Princess for the rest.
