Rejoice and tee up in the sibling camaraderie by rakhi bandhan

NEW DELHI:  The festival of Raksha Bandhan will be celebrated on August 7 this year. On the occasion, sisters tie a sacred thread (rakhi) to their brothers’ wrists and brothers, in turn, promise they will protect their sisters in times of need.

While sister-brother relationship throughout the year is mostly about quarrels and squabbling, Raksha Bandhan is all about love and actually letting your sibling know what they mean to you.

While traditionally celebrated by brothers and sisters, the festival, that celebrates the ‘bond of protection’, has changed with time and many sisters tie to rakhi to their sisters, fathers, mothers or even friends as they play a similar role in their life. In fact, some brothers are now breaking the tradition and tying rakhi to their sisters.

Here’s a list of Raksha Bandhan messages you can send to your siblings on WhatsApp, Facebook or via SMS

1. Memories may fade away with time but the love we share as a brother and sister will never fade away, rather it will multiply over the years. Happy Raksha Bandhan!

2. All other festivals may be very colourful but no festival is as powerful as Raksha Bandhan. It makes our bond stronger and stronger. Happy Raksha Bandhan!

3. Brothers are like streetlights along the road, they don’t make the distance any shorter but they light up the path and make the walk worthwhile. Love you, brother!
