RAKSHABANDHAN celebrated !

Rakshabandhan is popularly known for the celebration of the festival to strengthen the love, affection and ties between sisters and brothers. There are two big festivals in Hindu culture namely Tihar and Rakshabandhan which is mainly meant for brothers and sisters. In these festival, sisters offer Tika to their brothers in Tihar and Bandhan (Rakhi) in the Rakshabandhan. With the offering of this cotton bands, sister wishes the long life, better health and prosperity of her brothers. In the family, where the children are together, sister ties the rakhi band to their brothers, presents some sweets and delicious foods to their brother. In return, brothers provide gifts to their sisters. The gifts include nice clothes, money or such other things. Even after the marriage, the sisters used to come to the house of their brothers or invite them to her house to celebrate this occasion.
As the MUDULA karki, we never celebrate Tihar (the second largest festival of Nepalese Hindu), we used to celebrate Rakshabandhan. Some people used to say that this is the imported culture from India. Might be or might not be! In Goettingen, due to some technical problems, we celebrated Rakshabandhan today, however it is few days ago in fact. Beloved daughter, Aarju offered RAKHI to her brothers (Ravi and Avi). In return, ravi and avi presented her small gifts and few moneys that we gave to them! Here are some photos of the event. I hope that you will recall your celebration and enjoy it...

Dear Rajendra sir,
Thanks lot for continuing our culture in Germany! I wish to be there to celebrate Dashain again if not in Teej!

I came to know that Rajendra sir is always busy in field work. Probably you have got Tanki and Koiralo upto now, which was your utmost interest since last 3 years!!!

I would like to invite Aasha sister and Nani-Babuharu to be in my place to celebrate Teej. This is a heartfelt invitation from your elder brother for the TEEJ!
