Bhai-behen pics: 'A 58-year bond'
Readers share memorable pictures taken alongside their siblings. Share yours too!
We invited readers to share special brother-sister pics with us for Raksha Bandhan -- here's the first set of responses!
First up is this one from Dr Prafulla C Deka of Guwahati, Assam. He says, "This photograph of my sweet sister and me was taken in 1955. Please publish it, as the bond of love and relationship has remained for 58 years."
With Raksha Bandhan coming up this Saturday, we invite you to share your special pictures of your sibling/s and you. And do provide a short write-up alongside, telling us the story behind the photograph and why it's special to you. Send in your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: 'Bhai-Behen Ka Rishta') and we'll publish the best entries right here on rediff.com!

Four against one!
And finally, Gajanan Bochare sent in this snapshot, stating, "This was taken in 2007, during our short trip to Anjangaon. Four of us brothers -- myself, Shrikant, Sachin and Nishant -- along with our dear sister Shubhangi. We hardly get time to meet each other now, but this picture brings back old memories of our bond."
