India is a country of festivities and celebrations of relationships. We celebrate festivals all year round and we do it with vigor, joy and enthusiasm. Rakshabandhan is one such festival that celebrates the bond brothers and sisters share with each other. It is the auspicious day when sisters tie a Rakhi on the wrist of their brother and brothers give their sisters gifts in return. The sisters pray for their brothers’ well being and prosperity and brothers promise to protect them in return. The silk thread symbolizes the sentiments of siblings and ties their relationship in a stronger bond.
Girls everywhere are fretting over buying the perfect Rakhi for their brothers and brothers are already planning on what to give them. There is love, care, joy and affection in the air for siblings all over the country but there are few of unfortunate people who are oblivious of this atmosphere. If you are one of those people who live far away from your family or siblings, Rakshabandhan is probably like just another day of your life. Watching others celebrating the festival while you are working must probably tear you apart. What you are forgetting is that time goes by and while you are spending these precious moments stuck in your office and depriving your sibling of your presence on this auspicious day, you are not actually living. Sure, your work is important and it pays your bills but making time to visit your loved ones once in a while and especially during festivals is utterly important.
Take a day or two off from work and make time to visit your sibling on Rakshabandhan and show them how much you care about them. The time you will spend and the laughter you will share with them will be worth travelling all the way down to them.
