Tying the Rakhi on his wrist
She waited for the gift
What ? he gave a blank look
Won't you give me the sweet, he sniffed
Where's my gift And what is it ? she questioned
Here's it, handing small box wrapped
as she hastened
So small ? Not interesting, she pitched
But her eyes widened as she opened the gift
Holding the keys she started jumping
Oh my dear brother, she could stop hugging
she pulled him, Lets go for a long drive afar,
For now, her brother was a rock star.
Today is Rakhsha Bandhan and this poetry is dedicated to the sweet love between brothers and sisters.
Rakhsha Bandhan is an Indian festival, when Sisters tie Rakhi, a holy thread, on their brother's wrist. Sweets are fed and gifts are exchanged. When a sister ties Rakhi, the brother is tied into a bond(Bandhan) to protect(Rakhsa) his sister. He need not be blood brother or of same religion, just someone with whom you share brotherly love and will always keep you away from any harm.
Happy Rakhsha Bandhan to all.
