The raw threads of Raksha Bandhan a festival in India in which sister tie a decorated thread on brother’s hand and wishes for his long life and brother in turn promises to protect her from every evil is a strong bond of love between a brother and a sister. It is not just a thread but lifetime moments they spend together which I have tried to present in this poem. Happy Raksha Bandhan to all brothers and sisters.
Of Love,of care,of protection,of prayer,
of snatching chocolates, of hiding secrets,
of breaking piggy bank,of playing prank,
of singing together, of fighting for whatever,
of signing for father, of saving from mother,
of helping in homework, for building a network,
of sweet quarrels, of fake applauds,
of unspoken understanding, of unconditional supporting,
of calling a guy, of girl’s spy,
of sharing,of rearing, of bearing, of cheering,
of lifetime company, of life’s symphony.
