Rakhi makers are getting more creative!

The festive season has hit a high with a spate of festivals around the corner. Raksha Bandhan, the festival celebrating brother-sister relationship(s), is on Wednesday and like always the market is flooded with Rakhis of various designs, hues and sizes.

Rakhis are bands that sisters tie around the hands of their brothers on Raksha Bandhan day. In return, sisters get gifts and a promise that they would be cared for always.

Every year, Rakhi makers seem to be getting more and more creative. Have a look at these pictures that I clicked last year:

Rakhi adorned with Bal Hanuman theme. Little boys would love these:
