is a special occasion to celebrate this emotional bonding
between brothers and sisters on the full-moon day of the Shravan month
which comes once every year
where in the sisters tie a holy thread around the wrist of their Brothers.
This thread, which pulsates with sisterly love and sublime sentiments,
is rightly called the ‘Rakhi’.
It means 'a bond of protection'
However the Rakhi seen above
is totally made out of Re-cycled material
(news-print dipped in colour + cotton yarn)
