Raksha Bandhan being tomorrow, all sisters are ready to fill their pockets with money and lots of gifts. The scrumptious ghevar, savories in the market, the onset of the Sawan month and the broad variety of rakhis are nothing but precious and irreplaceable. Raksha means ‘to protect’ whereas, Bandhan implies ‘bond’.The occasion of Raksha Bandhan is the time when the sacred bond of a brother and a sister is celebrated by all family members.
It is celebrated on the full moon day of Shravan. Different corners of the country have different terminologies for this occasion. In central parts of the nation, this festival is known as Rakhi Purnima whereas, in northern parts it is known as Rakhri. Rakshabandhan is a festival that ushers heartfelt emotions and lots of sweets and gifts. Heartfelt Emotions?? With my sibling?? Well, your parents definitely expect you to feel those heartfelt emotions at least on Raksha Bandhan, but who cares! Right?
The bond that you have with your sibling has gone through many ups and downs. From fighting over a remote to sharing your first relationship’s experiences, you all have grown up together!
A few research states that brothers are more annoying than sisters. But, on Raksha Bandhan, sisters do not drop off any chance to irk their brothers.
Here is a list of the 7 things that sisters do to annoy their brothers on Raksha Bandhan.
Please me with gifts/money!
If you don’t give your sister a gift, they will definitely ask for money. If you already have given the ‘token amount’, they will definitely taunt you for more bucks!
Deep down in her heart, she is always happy even if you don’t give her anything! Why wouldn’t she be? After all, you are her brother
Touch my feet! This is my day!
Brothers are supposed to touch their sisters’ feet no matter how old they are!
And, this is one of the two days (another one is Bhai-Dooj) when sisters can “officially” ask their bros to bow down and touch their feet!
That long teeka!
No matter how many times your brother has requested you to put a small teeka on his forehead! You as a sister always makes sure that you draw a huge one!
I am the queen today! You have to wait!
It’s 11 in the morning! And you are almost ready but your sister has not woken up yet.
You have to wait and wait until she gets up because its her day (which was supposed to be yours)
Raksha Bandhan Selfie
And that never-ending selfie session with your sister for Rakhi updates on social media.
The big mithai in the mouth!
Brother: Yaar thoda sa! Please
Sister: Haan naa!
And, then your sister inserts a big laddu into your mouth.
Those chiche brother-sister songs that her heart sings all the time!
