    Dear Sapna,
    Excellent idea!!! Your alternative gives new meaning to Rakhi and kids will understand that life is all about caring for one another. And never mind the gender.

    That’s very thoughtful and sensible of you Sapna! A good cue for everyone to follow.

  • “My own solution. I began to undress the festivals. Layer by layer, I reached the core of each festival, ” – SO important to do this, to not just explain our roots and culture to our children, but to understand them for own own selves too. It’s a wonderful way to understand where one comes from, and where one wants to belong. You version of Rakhi is now my version too. Thanks, Sapna!
