This day comes every year and I always miss having an own sister sibling.having being brought up in the circle of male cousins/siblings I have hardly experinced this bondage with anyone apart from my cousins who used to tie the band.as time went on and not being my own siblings this custom gradually faded away.
Fortunately in the recent few years I have met people who have filled in their shoes and I make sure they get my heart felt wishes every year. (Not to forget my dearest cousin sister staying in Brunei country).
so for me I think Raksha bandhan is to be celebrated with my brothers.(any day for such a thing ?)
