I would like to wish my brother and all my cousin brothers a happy Raksha Bandhan!!! Raksha Bandan is a Hindu holiday which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters (including cousins).
I was able to celebrate with my brother and some of my cousin brothers when I was home in Detroit a little over a week ago. We had a family picnic where my cousin Varsha brought enough rakhis (they are like friendship bracelets) for us to tie on the guys. We are a little silly when we tie the rakhis because we line up in an assembly line. We tie, feed a sweet, hug, then have the girls rotate.
