The Significance of Rakhi in the Pandemic

It has been almost a year and a half since the country is under the covid effect causing everyone to be in dismay. Even though with the number of sad news pouring on news channels day in and day out, we Indians did not lose hope. A ray of hope is still alive in all of us because not everything that happened in the pandemic was bad. Staying away from family or even with them in the same house 24x7 has made everyone realise the importance of family and how mental and emotional proximity to them is the only way that makes living a happy life easier. We have been craving for those family get-togethers that we once wanted to skip and have been yearning for festival celebrations, be it Diwali gatherings or Rakhi celebrations that we once were hoping to get out of. This year has been the year for realisations.

With Rakhi just around the corner, one can only wish to celebrate it with their loved ones.

As Indians, we have festivals for every deity and occasion, but there is only one festival that celebrates a bond and relationship, Raksha Bandhan. There is no truer relation than the one a brother and sister share. A few of us have been lucky to have spent the lockdown period with our siblings and cousins and form a much stronger bond. As for the rest, staying away from family has only resulted in the heart getting fonder of those little banters and moments of adoration that brothers and sisters share. This has just made us realise the importance of Rakhi and why celebrating Rakhi is more than just a festival.

With everyone being all the more excited for Rakhi celebrations this year, we land on a bigger problem, Rakhi gifts. With everyone busy getting the same traditional good Rakhi gift suggestions, and rakhi celebration ideas, rakhi gift ideas have become very repetitive.

Rakhi Celebration Ideas

Raksha Bandhan is celebrated in a variety of ways and forms by people. The festival is celebrated in different ways by the people residing in various parts of India. Wondering how you can make rakhi celebrations at home a unique event for your brother and sisters? The answer is via another question.

How do we celebrate rakhi? The festival encompasses a sister tying rakhi to her brothers. Now to make this rakhi celebration unique, both the sisters and brothers need to give importance to one another. Make sure you have your thali, sitting mats and lights all perfectly arranged.

Another important tip is getting real flowers for the thali that not only make your thali gram-worthy but also bring a boost of colour to your rakhi celebrations. Since we are talking about importance, what better way to showcase that importance than giving a gift. Not just any gift, but best rakhi gifts for brothers and sisters. If rakhi gift suggestions from all your friends are exhausted, don’t worry. Personalisation is the key; it makes everyone feel special. Cadbury brings you the perfect personalised rakhi gifts that are delivered to your doorsteps. You can opt from a plethora of customisable options like the ‘Happy Rakhi Rich Dry Fruit Chocolate Box’, which contains assorted panned confectionery in 3 flavours- Cadbury Almond Magic, Cadbury Nut Butterscotch, Cadbury Raisin Magic, as well as a pretty rakhi all presented in an elegant gift pack you can personalise. Make it a Cadbury Celebrations Rakhi and enjoy the day to its fullest.

But what about the second half of us who cannot be in the same city as our brothers and sisters, you ask? You can still make it a special and unique event.

Rakhi message for long-distance brother

The struggle to find good heartfelt best rakhi messages is real. But it need not be. You can find some below :

-   You are truly my first best friend who fought for me and taught me to fight back in life. Wish you a very happy Raksha Bandhan, dear brother.

-  All those fights and hugs, tears and giggles, cold shoulders and warmth – each and every special moment is still fondly remembered. Love you, my special brother. You are the best. Happy Rakhi.

-   All through my growing up years, there was one person who saw through my pimple problem, my ‘am I getting fat’ problem, my ‘what should I wear’ problem, and so many more. Thanks for always being there for me, my dearest brother.

-   On this Rakhi, let’s bring back the lively spirit of childhood, play pranks with each other, and become that wacky sibling we were always.

-   My guardian and the only person who knows me inside-out, my lovely brother. Thanks for always being there.

Now that you are sorted with the message, the next step is the delivery of this message. Cadbury helps you out here as well.
