rakhi's for sale

 

Tomorrow is the Raksha Bandhan festival which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters. Many of the street stalls have been selling the rakhi (holy thread) for days now, but tonight they will all be busy with last minute shoppers.
(Rakhi is the thread that 'sisters' tie on their brothers, either real brother or one who looks after them like a brother. The brother then gives gifts to his sister and vows to protect her. I think this is something that is needed all over the world, so for at least one days brothers and sisters will get along!)
