Hi guys, it’s been a long time since I have posted something.
I would like to share my perspective of Raksha Bandhan here.I thought even this time I will be missing to celebrate RakshaBandhan with my brothers as it has happened before year. But , thanks to Onam Vacation I could go home and spend this RakshaBandhan with my brothers.
All these years since my childhood I use to see RakshaBandhan as a festival for receiving gifts. But now as I am little matured and as I am far away from my brother, I could feel the real love and affection for him.I have one own brother and two cousin brothers who are very close to me.I used to tie a Rakhi to all the boys in my locality who don’t have sisters.
But, I think this RakshaBandhan I thought it should be something different and yes I celebrated it differently.Firstly, I tied Rakhi to my brother this time not because he gives me gifts but it is because the token of gratitude I wanted to offer to him everytime he valued my interests and he let me follow my passion and when I decided to study in kerala he was the one who supported me the most. I never took time to thank him but this RakshaBandhan I tied him Rakhi as a token of gratitude rather than for his gifts.I tied him Rakhi not asking him to protect me but rather asking him to protect my self respect as he has done before.
This time I tied Rakhi to our WatchMan who was there since my childhood. He was the one who use to see it that I go to school safely and be safe on roads while I play on roads. He was infact there for every small thing and he was actually my protector in all ways.SO, this time I felt it’s necessary to tie rakhi to him as a token of gratitude which I couldn’t express all these days.
Apart from these I really wish I could I have got a chance to tie rakhi to our dear brother who keeps fighting for us near the borders and ready to face any challenge thrown on him at any point of time so that we can have a peaceful sleep with a smile on our face.But , this couldn’t happen as I didn’t get an oppurtunity.
It has been a really wonderful experience for me this RakshaBandhan tying rakhis to the real heroes of my life. And I encourage everyone to do the same.Friends it’s time that we give them a token of gratitude to all those real heroes of our life who protected our self respect and were there with us like our strength during all the times.
