    Default Make Your Own Rakhi

    What can be a better expression of the sisterly love than a self made rakhi

    1. Rakhi is generally a decorated silk thread. It may be a simple thread or it may be decorated with beads or designer motifs, religious symbols or even studded with jewels. Here are a few tip on how you can create your own rakhi.

    Material required
    1. Silk threads-multi-coloured
    2. Cotton thread
    3. Beads, sequins
    4. Scissors
    5. Glue
    Take a bunch of silk threads, multicolored if you want a colorful rakhi. Red and yellow are considered auspicious colors. You can also use a strand or two of golden thread. The threads should be around 30" long. Fold the length of the thread bunch to half. Tie a tight knot at one fourth of the length using the cotton thread. Cut the loops of the folded thread and fluff the open ends with a hard brush.

    Divide the longer part of the thread into two halves and plat them in desired way. Tie the ends with the cotton thread and fluff the open ends. These two strands will be used for the tying.

    Decorate the upper part with sequins, beads or religious motifs. If you are using multicolored threads arranged in some specific way, cut them short to a suitable length not more than ½".

    Point. I don't really see the point in all this "rakhi" stuff. "Ooooh oooh, you're my brother, let me take care of you blah blah blah"...
    Over and out.

    Hey guys...
    l I have a brother and I have never tied rakhi to him. Its kind of bla bal stuff. But I think it is mostly in the north. Or those of our army brothers. I think this kind of stuff will give them lot of gratification... Something.... Whatever be it.. there are lot of people who value it. I have seen people who wait eagerly for the rakhi from their sisters.. Its more like a brothers day.. (like mothers, fathers etc) where people send bracelets instead of greeting cards. So for all those people.. happy "raksha bandan..."

    Others.. well you are not going to get anything from your sisters.. believe me.... ;-) U all just wait.. your girlfriends are going to tie them for you.. ;-)

    Sometimes I do feel that this is all too over-senti and stuff. My sister used to tie/ send me Rakhi by post. I never felt any importance in that piece of sentiment but just to make her feel better I used to accept it. [ Background'la yaarachchum paasamalar music podunga pa ]

    silix... do u get it every yr???? well... didnt u get the point????? ur suppose to give her money chumma kidding

    rakhi or raksha bhandhan is obviously celebrated widely in north india... wat shiam said sounds reasonable.. like brothers day.. haha ... but its a brotherly bond ... she ties rakhi.. he gives sweet and money/gift/somethin... as a thank you gesture (somethin like that.. dont know exact words) ... :D

    mayb similar to frenship bands????
