A new way to celebrate Rakhi - Rishona Chopra
I don't know why our culture has this practice and mindset of brothers protecting sisters, but I think if you have siblings, then a Rakhi should be tied by both siblings showing that they will protect and love each other no matter what. It's not that brothers are not capable, but I personally don't like it.
I don't have siblings, so this Raksha Bandhan, I thought to do something different. I tied a Rakhi to three people. I tied a Rakhi to God, to my parents and to myself. These are the people who will always love me and protect me no matter what. The biggest protector is you. Only you know about yourself, and you can protect yourself too. So this Rakhi, tie a rakhi to your sibling, your parents, God, and most importantly, yourself.
PS: If you can't tie a rakhi to yourself with your own hands and find it tricky, you can tie yourself the Rakhi of happy thoughts!
