More than anything else, Raksha Bandhan is a great time for families to get together and enjoy each others’ company. It isn’t a public holiday for everyone, but it’s still a day where by tradition people meet somehow or the other with the excuse of giving gifts to sisters and having a राखी tied by them.
At this point, I can’t think of anything beyond Barbie dolls to give as all my sisters are at least 13 years younger than I am. That isn’t bad actually because the older anyone becomes, the more complicated it is to think of gifts that they would cherish and consider unique.
Other than that you get to eat home-cooked food outside your own house. I really love the food my grandmom cooks, it really feels great. The food may be the same, but the change is quite evident. I’d probably be sick of it, if I had it for a month but thankfully that isn’t humanly possible, at least not in my case.
Our electronics teacher was supposed to have taken a class today(college isn’t officially off, but all the other teachers said they wouldn’t come) and if she really did, the walls would certainly have learned something.
