I recently traveled to India and as always, the visit was glorious. While I was there, India celebrated Raksha Bandhan, a special festival focusing on the love and bond between a brother and a sister. I wrote about this festival I remembered from childhood and rediscover how it has changed in modern day India.


This is my first of several posts capturing the glimpes of modern day India for National Geographic Traveler. I would love your thoughts!

  1. Lovely article about Raksha bandhan and the way it’s now commercialised! India has progressed over the years and we can see this now in the shops and also from the presents brothers can afford to give now!

    Lovely to see that the trsdition of rakhi is still remembered.
