Raksha Bandhan - Celebrate the bond!

India celebrates the festival of Raksha Bandhan!

Here is such a beautiful and lovely quote by Smt. Bhanumathi Narasimhan.

"This full moon is dedicated to the seers -- the Rishis. It is also called the Raksha Bandhan, which means a bond that protects you. Your bondage to the knowledge, to the master, to the truth, to the Self, all save you. Today the sister ties Rakhi on the brother's hand saying, 'I will protect you and you protect me'."

Happy Raksha Bandhan everyone!

Featured is rakhi I made from reusing rakhis from previous years.

Festivals are colorful and joyful times. As we indulge in celebrations lets keep our carbon prints as less as possible. Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Reconsider!
