Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan fell on Wednesday, August 5 2009. It's a special day for brother's and sisters on the Hindu calendar. Sisters tie a decorated piece of string on her brothers right wrist, and he gives her a gift or money in return. It's a special day to strengthen the bond between siblings and cousins :)
