Today the siblings tied Rakhis on each other’s wrists (though Brat Three was looking at her gift while tying the red and gold thread). Then, when her brother asked for one more thread I was puzzled for a moment, “One more?”
“Tejaswee’s” He said.
I tied one Rakhi for each from Tejaswee.
This was taken on Raksha Bandhan, 2000
Four years ago I was still hoping, against all hopes, and praying on this day.
