Rakhi! That time of year again when sisters tie a thread on their brother’s wrist, a sign of their affection and love, and of the bond that ties sisters and brothers together through life. These photos were taken on Rakhi (August 20, 2013) at our home in Juhu, Mumbai. In it our daughter, Mamli, prays for her younger brother, Bablu and ties her Rakhi on his wrist. She also performs the same for her sisters-in-absentia – Meghu & Chikoo, my sister’s daughters, who live in New Jersey, USA, and send their Rakhi’s by post. I too got my sister’s Rakhi (Gayatri Satpathy) and I am wearing it on my wrist right now. Love you sis.
