Rakhi... the festival which celebrates the relationship between brothers n sisters. as we all know.. the festival is marked by d tying of a rakhi ( holy thread) by d sister on d wrist of her brother. was jus remembering "rakshabandhan" in school days... it was so much fun to watch boys hehehe.. they used be so afraid.. no one wanted his crush to tie d thread on his wrist... no one wanted to wipe off that hope :D ( to be her b.f sumday) owwww what a day it used to be.. boys turning face when a pretty gurl approaching wid a rakhi in her hand.. gr8 scene..
but unfortunately there were some IDIOTS too (who misuse it)... rakhi became a convinient way of getting closer to the gurl /boy they liked...she wuld tie d thread n expect a gift from him nd he would have wet dreams at night :-/
strange but true!!
rakhi was one of d most awaited festivals for me as a child coz i used to anticipate gud amount of money and gifts ; ) used to calculate in advance how much i will get...how m gonna spend it...blah..blah..blah... he used to give me smallest possible amount like dassi, panji ( by ne chance if u still remember) or pachhies paise.. what a argument we used to shoot...finally mum used to interfere... and i used to walk away wid stuffed pockets and a big grin :D
basically it was not money which mattered it was that fun which i miss a lot now..
its 3rd consecutive rakhi widout my brother...( he is in Australia) i called him up in d morning but he was at work so culdnt talk for long.. i have sent rakhi for him but m not liking this long distance rakhi style... perhaps distance makes d heart grow fonder but hadddd ho gayi hai ...its been three years now he is away not just on rakhi infact all festivals..occassions... diwali, holi, christmas,new year all festivals widout him...
but sumhow m happy tht he is getting settled in his life wid a nice life partner... he is taking up his responsibilities... making his own life... though we both miss each other a lot but this is called life..
