The diary game, 03/08/2020, Third entry - RAKSHABANDHAN TIME
Hello steemians, first of all i would like to wish all my Indian friends on Steem a very happy rakshabandhan to all of you! I hope you all had a wonderful time with your siblings and cousins.
What is rakshabandhan?
It is a popular hindu Tradition festival, This Festival is dedicated for the Siblings love. It is celebrated in India, Nepal and other parts of Indian sub-continents .it is celebrated by people from all over the world who are influenced by hindu culture. Raksha and Bandhan literally means the Bond of protection, obligation and Care.
How do we celebrate it?
Rakshabandhan is a ritual of never-ending love between brother and sister, which perfectly defines the strong bond between them. When words are not enough, a holy thread(RAKHI) is simply tied to the brothers' wrist by their sisters. This unique way of showing love is indescribable
Ideally, on this day, the girls put tikka on the forehead of their brothers and tie a colorful thread of love and blessings on their wrist who in return promise to protect her for the whole life. They also offer gifts as a symbol of commitment( Mostly chocolates)
In the morning time today i woke up early by 7AM because i had put Alarm for same. I was so excited for this day and i knew it's going to be a really busy day but really exciting and good one. A day when i was really confident that it will be a "A day well spent". I woke up early then got ready to go village as soon as possible.
After getting ready i called my friend @golusingh we are from same village and so do @jatinthakur, @anuragthakur, @arjuskrwr and @nidhu we all are cousins. After a while @golusingh arrived at my home by 8 AM and we headed to my village in the morning.
It took like 10 - 15 Mintues to Reach my village. It's nearby to the place i currently live. Approx 9 Kilometers. We went there with bike
In the village there are my 3 little cousins sisters they are 4, 6 and 14 years old. I went there so i can celebrate rakshabandhan with them.
I reached their after a while they all came and tied Rakhi on my wrist one by one. They Tied Rakhi and i gave them some chocolates and some Cash. They all were so happy i took a selfie with the younger one..
I went there on Bike, so my hair got messed up. She's my youngest cousin and her name is "LAVI"
I also had some great conversations with my uncle and aunt. I also played with all of my sisters. Then after an hour i returned back because @golusingh had to do some unfinished work.
I came back to home i was all alone because my parents also went to meet their brothers/sisters. I was feeling hungry because i didn't had any breakfast today so i had to eat something.
Rakshabandhan special food. It's very comman i asked many of my friends they had same food at their homes
After having food i called @jatinthakur because now we had to meet @arjuskrwr and @nidhu so we decided to go there together. Within next 10 minutes @jatinthakur arrived at my home and we headed to our cousins home @nidhu and @arjuskrwr
We had to purchase chocolate so while on the way we Went to Kitchen store to purchase chocolate for cousins.
We purchased a variety of chocolates.
We finally reached there together, we noticed that there were already so many people and mostly our mutual relatives so we said hello to everyone there.

Then they tied the same on @jatinthakur wrist and we both gave them the chocolates we brought for them. Both of them were happy to see so many chocolates although we ate some there together.
