A shoulder to lean on
Next we have this one from Sreeram Pavan based in New York. He says, "When I was in India we used to celebrate Rakhi as a special festival. My sis used to come back to our house to tie the holy thread, a symbol of love. Now she send it across to America by post -- which arrives very late! But what I do is, I tie it on whenever it arrives and wear new clothes that day.

Too young to tie it on!
Vidhya Sumra sent in this snapshot, explaining, " This is me and my brother. I did not know how to tie a rakhi and I had just put it on his hand. We clicked this in a studio back in 1987."

Tricycle lessons for my sis
"This photograph shows me, my little sister Darshana Garg and our father as we teach her to ride her first tricycle," says Ibu Sanjeeb Garg of Guwahati. "This was taken in Arunachal Pradesh in Tengavalley, where we resided. It has been 20 years since then and yet the bond is as close as ever."
