Raksha Bandhan festival has various ancient stories attached to it, for example, Krishna Draupadi, Rani Karnawati and Emperor Humayun etc. This auspicious celebration honours the holy and precious relationship that exists between brothers and sisters. Rakhi is tied on the wrists of brothers by sisters, followed by blessings, wishes, and prayers for each other. Brothers commit to protecting their sisters and being there for them in difficult times. This holiday is not limited to just India but is widely observed and celebrated around the world.
Distance should not come in between the celebratory spirits of brothers and sisters on this festival of Raksha Bandhan. But, we understand that some sisters have their brothers living overseas and cannot come back for some reason. Well, we have curated some ideas on how you can celebrate Raksha Bandhan with full vigour when your brother is Abroad.
Send Rakhi Online
This is the most important element of celebrating Raksha Bandhan when your brother is not around and lives overseas. Choose from a wide range of unique and designer Rakhis and make a proper Rakhi Thali for your crime-buddy brother. The thali should include a Rakhi, a Lumba Rakhi (if you have a sister-in-law), Roli, Rice, and Mouli and decorate the thali with embellishments. Send Rakhi to Canada or anywhere your brother lives. Surprise your brother and put an adorable smile on his face.
Send Rakhi with Chocolates
To make the celebration more happening and surprise your brother a bit more, you can also send a hamper of lip-smacking chocolates to him. Make a lovely bunch of your brother dear’s favourite flavours, for example, dark chocolate, coffee mocha chocolate, hazelnut chocolate etc. This Raksha Bandhan, surprise your brother and send Rakhi with chocolates to Canada or anywhere he lives worldwide. Let your darling brother indulge in the flavours of luscious chocolates, and do not forget to tag a heartfelt message card with your wishes and feelings penned on it.
Give a Video Call
We understand that you are craving to meet your brother on Raksha Bandhan, but that would not be possible due to some reasons. You can always have a video chat with your brother and see him opening the Rakhi parcel and other presents during the video call. You will get to see his reactions, make funny jokes about one another, laugh wholeheartedly, and capture the comical and precious moments as screenshots to cherish them for eternity.
Fly to Your Brother
This idea is one of the best. If you can take some days off from your busy schedule in the office, then plan a surprise trip to your brother’s place and visit him there. If your brother cannot come to you for some reason, then you can try to go and surprise him with your presence. And indeed, it will surprise your brother to the core. Celebrate the festivities with full enthusiasm and cherish the moments for eternity.
We indeed grow together and spend our childhood fighting one another over silly reasons, but as time unfolds, we learn to survive the distance with all of our memories in our hearts. The sibling bond is strange, yet it is undeniably strong. Raksha Bandhan is a celebration dedicated to siblings, which is why Indians celebrate it. To complete the ceremonies, brothers and sisters must come together in one place. But, if your sibling was unable to return you this Raksha Bandhan, then maybe you can visit him, or perhaps you cannot.
Celebrate the festival in any way possible, and don’t be disheartened. Happy Raksha Bandhan to you and your brother!
