Raksha Bandhan 2018 Threads of love.

Raksha Bandhan is an Indian Festival. It is about the bond between sisters and brothers. Simply put it is about threads of love with no strings attached that come straight from the heart.

Threads of Love 

Siblings! You know how they are; they grow up with you they are irritating and fun all at once. They just arrive into your life or you into theirs and there is no looking back. If they are around they get on your nerves (well, sometimes) don’t lie. When they are not around, you miss them.

Most of the time the big brothers have your back, or if you are the elder one then you have theirs, that is an instinct that come naturally. They turn protectors at the drop of a hat. Even if it was that hat that you were fighting about in the first place.

It’s all those little tiffs over silly things which don’t even matter and about the thing that you laugh about when you grow up.  Sharing is caring! Oh is it? Why does all the lovely stuff suddenly get divided equally?  You know because of whom?

However, it is in this sharing of life and in the “this is mine and that is yours”, where the warmth of a brother and sister or for that matter any siblings lies. The love that you share always gets it back to what it should be … OURS. Not yours and mine …but just ours.
