The changing scenario of Raksha Bandhan today
With brothers and sisters across the country readying to celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan this Sunday, we ask four Punekaris about the changing scenario of the festival today
Sneha Kulkarni, Advocate
Even today, it feels the same; in fact I feel that the importance has increased. When you have to stay away from your siblings, the love increases.
Devvrat Shukla, Software Quality Analyst
Rakshabandhan for me has the same emotional value but due to a busy schedule and a professional life, it becomes difficult to meet.
Rachitta Bahal, PR professional
Nothing has changed, I feel that it is the same. I make it a point that every Rakshabandhan I meet all my cousins and we celebrate it together.
Dinesh Maheshwari, Restaurateur
The meaning has changed; people celebrate it more on the weekends than on that particular day. Today, it is more about convenience.
