Rakhi (Rakshabandan), just went by, and this time I decided to make Rakhis by myself. Time to use your hobby, right??
Do you know that traditionally only a Kalawa (thread/dora) was used as a Rakhi?
Do you know that Rakhis comes now in various designs like toys, stones, cartoons, musical and bracelet form?
Do you know that Punjab is famous for it’s Resham Rakhis, while Mysore for Sandalwood Rakhis?
Do you know that Pavitropana a festival symbolic to Rakhi, is celebrated in Gujrat, where people, tie threads of cotton to shiva-linga?
I will leave you with some pics of Rakhi celebrations by my kids. Enjoy!!!
