Rohan's Rakshabandhan Celebration

Rohan's Rakshabandhan Celebration

3 mins 15 3 mins 15

This is a story about a happy family of 4, Rohan; Rashmi, his elder sister; and his parents. They lived in the northern parts of India in Punjab. They were a middle-class family who owned a home in Chandigarh. Rohan was 7 years old and his sister was 12. Everyone was extremely happy as in 5 days' time it was Rakshabandhan, a fun festival. Clay pots, plates and diyas needed to be made and decorated. New clothes and Rakhis had to be purchased. So Rohan and his dad set off to the local shops to purchase the things on the list that mum sent.


First, they went to buy the clay pots, plates and diyas. They were made in lovely shapes and were decorated in rich colors. They bought 2 pots, 4 plates and a set of 6 diyas. Next, they went to buy new clothes. Luckily, they found some Rakhis as well. They bought two Rakhis as Rashmi used to tie one to her dad as well. They bought silk kurtas for themselves, a lengha for Rohan’s sister and a silk saree for Rohan’s mum. Finally, they went to the gift shop and purchased a lego set and a craft set. Rohan was a bit sad now as he had to use his pocket money to purchase the lego set, while his dad paid for the craft set. They went back home and secretly hid the gifts they had bought. Rohan went to his room and started thinking how had he wasted his pocket money for a gift. He was angry at himself for not thinking twice about it.


3 Days Later….

Rohan was excited as tomorrow was Rakshabandhan. Today was a busy day. They still had to make sweets, wrap their gifts, and had to visit other people in their community to help. They always used to help out on festivals. Rohan and his dad grabbed the gifts and slipped out of the house to wrap the gifts. They surely didn’t want Rashmi to see the gifts. They wrapped the gifts up in a pink wrapping paper and the set off to help their neighbour.


Meanwhile, Rashmi and her mom had made 8 different types of sweets. There were Gulab Jamuns, Rasgullas, Kaju Katlis, Dood Pedas, Halwa, Jalebi, Gujia and Paan Petha. What a spread they had made. Rohan and his dad slipped in and hid the gifts. When they entered the kitchen they mouths dropped in awe. Were they in a sweet shop? They felt like eating all of them at once but they had to decorate the house and get the Puja Room ready.7:00 p.m. was the time when they finished everything. It was a tiring day. They had dinner and went to bed early as they didn’t want to wake up late tomorrow.


The next day they woke up early and cleaned the house thoroughly. They soon got ready in the clothes that Rohan and his dad bought for them. Rashmi then took the plate that everything was kept on. She applied the tika and tied the rakhi. She got her lego set from Rohan (He was still angry at himself) and fed him his favorite sweet, Rasgullas. She did the same with her dad and got her craft set as well. She fed him his favorite sweet, Kaju Katli. And that was Rohan’s Rakhi Celebration
