When I looked back a few years ago, so many amazing memories come rushing back. Some of the most precious ones are on Raksha Bandhan. It was a lovely day. The whole night it was raining. Sun was shining and a little dazzling too. I got up early and took a bath and wore my favourite Kurti. And I was busy preparing my thali for rakhi, while my mother was calling me again and again for breakfast. I kept my brother’s favourite sweets (mithai), sindoor, and rice grains for teeka in my thali. My brother was excited too. As he is not a morning person but that day he got up early and ready for rakhi.
Then I tied a rakhi around his wrist. He took the sweet and ate a full piece of sweet by himself. Then I asked for my gift. He started to make fun that he forgot, so he had only chocolate for me. I was a little disappointed but accepted as a token of love. I took the chocolate and turned, and suddenly something came close to my eyes. It was blurred, and I am not able to see what was that. Suddenly I saw a key. I was wondering what kind of key. He was smiling and said your gift is outside. I quickly ran out and found my scooty there. I was overjoyed and hugged my brother and thanked him for the wonderful gift.
