Rakhis are back everywhere in the market, as sisters and brothers are shopping for Raksha Bandhan( which means 'The Bond Of Protection'), which is celebrated on the full moon of the month Shravana, which falls on 28th August this year.

Sweet shops are gearing up for the large supply of sweets, and the markets are full of freshly stocked sarees, salwars and jewellery.


  1. i have tried time and again and miserably failed to explain fellow americans as to how an unrelated boy and girl can become brother-sister. "Why would they do that?"
    Help me out here.

  2. I was trying to understand also this
    concept sister-brother :) Are they just friends - "bestis"?
    I love your colourful decorations and clothes as well.

  3. lovely bright colors - signifying the joy the festival brings!

  4. Very lovely colors! Interesting photo for me;) Thanks for sharing it!

  5. Shek, I'm not sure if I can answer that, but I'll make sure I'm askin lots of people, including family this time, and I'll be back with the feedbacks soon.
