This year, Raksha Bandhan was very special for me. This is the first time in my life that a rakhi was tied on my wrist.
Yep, you read that right. The snubnose has gotten into full festival spirit and has made rakhis for me and Kalyan.
Here is a snapshot of the rakhi on my hand:
Although, it is quite obvious that the snubnose has her concepts a teeny-weeny bit mixed up (Raksha Bandhan is a festival that celebrates the brother-sister relationship, and she should have ideally have tied the rakhi to any boy she regards as a brother), I am still very proud of the rakhi that she has made for me.
It is quite a simple and novel idea. She has used vadams (a kind of south-indian fryums), strung them up on a rubber band and made a knot.
Quite simple and creative, no? That’s why I feel she has a real turn for art 🙂 . I also really love that her school Neev encourages her interest in art (painting, music, and dancing).
