To celebrate the special bond between siblings on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, we invited readers to share special moments they've spent with their brothers/sister. Here are some of the responses we received. Share yours!

First up is Mansi Manchanda who mailed us this picture of hers with her brother Sahil when she was 1 and 1.5 year old and her brother was 5.

This picture was taken in 1983 and ever since she was born, writes Mansi, the siblings have celebrated all but one Raksha Bandhan together.

"That year, my brother who seldom shows his emotions. That year he wrote me a very emotional 2 lines letter in which i could read the emotions which he was not able to write!!!!," writes Mansi about her brother's feelings when they could not meet for the Rakhi festival.

"Luv u bro," is Mansi's message to her beloved brother Sahil.

Sugandha Jain sent us this picture along with an ode to her brother Saurabh on the eve of Rakhi 2013.

"This is a picture of me and my brother Saurabh taken on a Raksha Bandhan morning in 1987. Even though me and my brother were sewn in a different pattern, we share a common thread of mutual love and respect that won't be broken by people or years or distance. My brother understands the language of my heart. He inspires me everyday by his unconditional belief in me. May the infinite ocean of love and peace always flow though him.
