With rakhi tying and the traditional pooja ceremony, the festival of Raksha Bandhan is a reinforcement and celebration of the protective bond between brothers and sisters.

“Brothers and sisters are as close as hands and feet,” says a Vietnamese proverb. Make sure you commemorate the strong bond you share with your sibling.

Brother is the best friend

A brother is a sister’s best friend. Your brother understands you better than anyone else. He is someone who spends the most time with you and who knows each and every thing about you.

Problem solver

Your brother solves your all problems before letting anyone else know. Sometimes he can get angry with you but he is the one who will take the most care of you. No matter what your problem is, if you have your brother, you’ll always be fine.

 Secret keeper

Your brother is someone who keeps your secrets. Maybe sometimes he says, “I will tell this to mother and father,” but he never does.

Own language

You and your brother have your own language that you speak in front of your parents. You share many jokes that only the two of you can understand, like funny nicknames for relatives.

Talk about you crush

A brother always tells his sister first about his crush. He might ask, “what is the name of your that friend who came over today?” He always asks for advice to impress his crush.

Talk nonsense

Sometimes we can’t engage in nonsense with our friends, but brothers and sisters can sit for hours talking about any topic, even the silliest ones.

Best supporter

Brother and sisters are the best supporters for each other in all aspects. When it comes to getting in trouble with parents, sisters save their brothers from father’s anger and brothers do the same when sister come late too home and get mom angry. No matter what, brothers and sisters always have each other’s back.

Funny faces

When the family is seated for dinner and parents are giving a boring lecture on your studies, it’s your brother who makes you laugh by making funny faces.


He always call you “Moti”

No matter how slim you are, your brother always says, “Moti, how much did you eat?  Nothing is left in the refrigerator.” He likes to tease but he always means it with love.

You are lucky to have your brother. Show him you care by tying raakhi on his wrist. Promise to take care of each other always and do not forget to give him and bhabhi gifts!
