Update Aug 15, 2009:
Even though Rakhi is celebrated in northern India our family is also celebrating this every year . My husband worked in Indian armed forces for more than 20 years. We spent most of our time in north India only. I still remember when my children first time celebrated their Rakhi. Then my daughter was 4 or 5 years old and my son was 7 or 8 years, from that time we are celebrating this festival. Now they are 24 and 27. As we belong to Southern India, we celebrate this festival as we do like for other festivals. The milk halwa that I prepared here is liked by my children a lot. This year my son gifted my daughter a gold necklace and silk Saree. I am happy that we are celebrating festivals like this one as it thickens the bond between them.
I am attaching the photo of Raksha Bandhan festival that we celebrated this year.
