Raksha Bandhan is the one day in a year when one of the most underrated relationships gets its due. Brothers and sisters play many roles for each other throughout their lives, but it is rare for anyone to acknowledge or appreciate it. As we inch closer to the sacred day of the siblings, we asked a few of our friends to share their fondest memory or their most favourite thing about the festival. And here’s what they had to say.
Balaji Chilvery happens to be among the youngest of siblings, but has almost 10 younger cousins. When asked to share his favourite thing, he says: “Happiness on my sisters’ face when they receive our gifts and the look on their faces when us brothers bow down to touch their feet.”
