Raksha Bandhan, literary means a protection bond.
The bond between anybody,
Especially the bond between the sisters with their brothers!
Tying a decorated ribbon on brothers’ wrist, shows the sisters’ might.
A method to express love and respect;
And, a way to ask protection!
The sacred bond which is not easy to express,
Is only being expressed by tying this unbreakable bond!
The relation which can only be felt by experiencing!
Purity, loyalty run through the veins of this relation!
Non-permeable sheal protects it.
The knot and the ribbon have the power to hold this for life long.
Beyond any relation, beyond any perception,
I feel for the one who will protect me till my last breath.
I expect him to protect me even after my death,
Wherever I’ll be taken, either heaven or hell!
Every breath of mine is dependent on him.
Every step is apparently checked by him before I step.
Protecting me from the norms!
Protecting me from being called ‘the stigma’!
Protecting me from those who want to eat me!
I’m fastening the ribbon with a tight knot which would act as a bulwark for him.
This small, thin ribbon has the power to provide the armour for him.
A magic of spells has forced the ribbon to create a concealed sheal for you.
Keep this along with you.
A protection from your sis- Raksha Bandhan!
