Rakshabandhan: A bond of love between brother and sister

Finally, Raksha Bandhan or what we call raakhi is finally here. More popularly known as the day of the siblings, there’s a lot of love and emotional bonding that the festival celebrates. Celebrated throughout India and also in countries like Nepal, the term “Rakshabandhan” means “to tie a knot of protection”. Adorable as it sounds, the sisters tie a colorful band or raakhi on the wrist of her brother (not only blood relations but cousins also).

Raksha Bandhan

What is the origin of Rakshabandhan?

If you are wondering where it all began, the festival goes back to the time of Mahabharata. It is believed that when Krishna had accidentally cut his hand, Draupadi tore-off a portion from her saree and put it around the wound for healing it. On the other hand, when she was undergoing the torment in the hands of the Kauravas, Krishna used the same portion of saree to turn it into a saree to save her dignity. It is believed that Krishna fulfilled his promise to protect Draupadi (sister). Since then, the festival has been celebrated across the country. In the ancient age, the brothers would visit their sisters in her in-law’s house where she has been married off to get the raakhi tied and exchange gifts with her as well.

The festival is all about the love, bonding, care and protective feeling that the siblings share and the festival is celebrated with full enthusiasm in today’s time. From the adults celebrating the festival, it is the little ones who look adorable wearing beautiful girls ethnic wear and the brothers wearing boys party wear doing all the customs involved in the festival.

The very purpose of celebrating Rakshabandhan lies in cherishing the special bond between the brother and the sister. But when it comes to helping your little ones celebrate the day with full enthusiasm and zest, you can do a lot of things that would brighten up their day.

The Joy of Parenthood

I still remember the very first day when we brought Sahana home. Our life was full of happiness and new responsibilities now. The excitement of becoming a mommy for the first time was high. Coming from a conservative family, I have always faced gender issues. So, I was very sure in giving my daughter all the happiness that she deserved as a child. Luckily I married Karthik, who believes in gender equality. Though it was an arranged marriage, we have always been mad for each other. After two years of marriage life, Sahana was our first bundle of joy. Both of us were excited about parenting.

Now, we had to upgrade our belongings from a kid’s perspective. We moved to a bigger flat. The flat had a separate room for kids which attracted us mainly. We just had to paint it according to our desire. Sahana is fond of Chota Bheem and Chutki. Though she was just four months old at that time, still she would become so happy in watching them on the Tv. The expression on her face was priceless. So, we decided to paint the walls with the Chota Bheem theme.

After the walls, it was the wardrobes. We made sure that they were in contrasting colors. They had to be filled with cute attires as well. So, Karthik and I started surfing online websites for more options, that’s when we landed on Foreverkidz.com.The store had an ample number of options for kids and even infants. We couldn’t wait to see Sahana as a grown up munchkin. The Infant store had a huge assortment but, we weren’t sure of the quality. Hopefully, the fabric details were specified in the description below. I made sure that I shop for girls accessories as well to match the outfits (Obviously mum and mini style has to be the same, right?). I didn’t know that even online shopping for kids would have so many options.
