We are indeed compelled to think outside the box in almost all the areas of human interaction. The festival of Raksha Bandhan has been celebrated since time immemorial in the Hindu way of life. There has hardly been any need to even think or discuss as to how to celebrate Raksha Bandhan online in the history of humanity. But, here we are discussing precisely that which has never been thought or discussed in the history of Raksha Bandhan celebration.
It is obvious that when we are counting the ways to celebrate Raksha Bandhan online, we are also encouraging and facilitating the sisters to send rakhi to their brothers online. We have discussed it thoroughly in our previous post: “How to Send Rakhi to Brothers Online?”
So, your rakhi has reached your brother through Babla Rakhi at the right time and at the right place. Now what? Of course, celebration. And, how to do it. Let us explore together.
The first reaction of any brother when he receives rakhi from his sister is to make a quick phone call or message with the photograph of the stunning rakhi that the sister has sent. It is during this first conversation the next course of action gets decided. Since, we encourage booking the rakhi orders 15 days in advance, it is likely that your rakhi has reached at least a day before the festival of Raksha Bandhan. Here are ways to celebrate Raksha Bandhan virtually after the first acknowledgment call:
Platforms like Zoom and Skype gives you the option to record the videos so that you can keep them as a precious memory of wonderful virtual celebration of Raksha Bandhan. Make sure to choose the platform that makes virtual celebration of Raksha Bandhan as memorable and as pleasant as the physical celebration that we all are quite accustomed to.
Just a simple voice call
Virtual lunch or dinner party
This is also one of the ways to celebrate Raksha Bandhan virtually. Brothers and sisters have many shared memories while growing up together. For example, you may have a story related to an outfit. You may have shared liking of any colour or any accessory or jewellery. While celebrating Raksha Bandhan virtually, brothers and sisters can decide to twin any of these shared interests. For example, if both of you have loved a chain, or an outfit, or both of you like any colour the most, you can twin it on a video call and take the fun quotient of the virtual celebration of Raksha Bandhan a notch higher. You can also twin any anecdote running in the family. For example, an incident that you have shared in your growing up years can have interesting brother sister version of it. This kind of sharing brings the feeling of being together as well as nostalgia even if it is a virtual celebration.
These are just some of the ways you can celebrate Raksha Bandhan virtually. There may be number of other ways to celebrate Raksha Bandhan virtually. You just need to think out of the box and be at ease with the current situation of social distancing.
The festival of Raksha Bandhan has mythological, cultural, historical roots. Hence, there are many stories that revolve round this festival.
