In northern India Rakshabandhan means display of affection between brothers and sisters, sisters tie these colourful rakhis on the wrist of their brothers and pray for their wellbeing. brothers promise to protect them.

in bengal, the province where i live its the celebration of friendship cum brother-sister affection. not only sisters but friends too tie rakhi on each other’s wrist πŸ™‚

  1. It’s after a long time that I could come across your ‘Like’ on my post ‘ He deserves a place in gallows:’. I am glad to get you back on my site. In fact I did miss you all this long time. I am not receiving your posts, possibly the ‘follow link’ is not functional. I am starting to follow you afresh. Your writeup on Raksha Bandhan is highly inspiring. I also had written the one on another blog of mine the link of which is given here for your perusal and reaction:
    Looking forward to remaining in contact with you like we did in the past.

  2. My earlier blog with a readership of 6 lakhs plus was callously hacked by unscrupulous hacker hawks and it took time for me to reconstruct this one the ‘Avenues’. It’s a great satiation to me to get you back on my blog ‘Avenues’ with the address uppermost.me which is now being followed by you. I feel so very thankful to you as your ‘following’ counts much for me as a bond of nearness. I did follow you in the past and even renewed it afresh but I am still not receiving your posts. Please check at your end. Looking forward to a continued friendship with a talented person like you possessing a great aesthetic sense. Regards.

    • well, receiving the posts i guess is absolutely lotto winning, none of my friends get the posts delivery perfectly, not only mine, other friends too. so you can just drop by whenever i cross your mind and i can assure you, you will find some new posts πŸ™‚
