~ The Bond of Love ~
India is a land of festivals . Virtually celebrating
each day of the year , there are more festivals
celebrated here than anywhere else in the world .
To celebrate the beautiful bond of love n purity
between brother and sister , we celebrate
Raksha Bandhan . Raksha means to protect and
bandhan means a bond. The festival is marked by
tying of a holy thread adorned with decorations
by the sister on wrist of his beloved brother .
This thread called Rakhi is the symbolic
representation of the unspoken promise
to protect the sister from all evils .........
Today's creation is a depiction of the pious
Rakhi - the sweet n edible way !!!
