In the roller coaster ride that life is, we meet many people. Some we adore, some touch our hearts and some simply annoy us. Then there are some, who get on our nerves but we fail to understand why we love them so much. Well yes, it’s the sibling bond we’re talking about. Admit it! There is no bond dearer and special than the bond of siblings. Even if you drive each other crazy and hate each other sometimes, the bond between a brother and a sister is unique and unbeatable. 

While there’s no one day to express your love for your brother or sister, we do observe the beautiful festival of Raksha Bandhan to celebrate this bond. On this day, sisters tie rakhi on their brothers’ wrists while they shower their behnas with some amazing rakhi gifts for sister. Well, at least, traditionally! But we’re sitting in 2020 and it’s all about breaking stereotypes. These days, sisters are celebrating Rakhi not just with their brothers but with each other as well and we’re all for it!
