ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsRaksha Bandhan is meant to be a celebration of the beautiful bond shared between brothers and sisters. Every year without fail, the day is marked on the calendar with a ton of reverence by sisters and as the date begins to draw closer, every brother ends up receiving a reminder about the same, every waking minute of his life. But is it always as good as it sounds? Maybe not. via GIPHY Though we're all aware of the sentiments behind the ritual, there have been multiple occasions in a guy's life when the rakhi celebrations have given him quite a scare for a number of reasons. So, we went around asking a few guys to let out those fears in the open and share them with all of us. Here's what they had to say: 1. The Fear Of Getting Bro-Zoned Is Real “Ever since our school days, I have been a little jittery about celebrating this day with anybody else besides my family. At school, our teachers would make such a fuss about the day and literally force the guys in the class to become rakhi-brothers to the girls of our class. Imagine the horror. Since then I have stayed away from school and college on this day for the fear of being bro-zoned by a girl I like” - Kunal, 23. 2. Struggles Of Celebrating Rakhi In A Joint Family via GIPHY “Ours is a joint family, so basically I have both of my Tau Ji and Bua living under the same roof, along with all of my first cousins. While all is fun and games on most days, Raksha Bandhan has been quite challenging ever since two of my older cousin sisters got married. Not being able to dig into the elaborate feast waiting for us until all the sisters are done tying their rakhis on every brothers' wrist, is quite a struggle as it is, but these two end up making us wait even longer now that they have to visit every time”, says Nishant, 20. 3. When Your Little Sister Is Also A Fangirl via GIPHY “Now this wouldn't have been as scary if someone didn't have a little sister who is a quite a fan. So a few years back she decided to surprise us by getting me a rakhi of her choice. To my horror I was indeed utterly surprised by the Hello Kitty rakhi she'd picked for me, which I was made to keep on for the next two days because she would begin to wail even at the mention of my desire to take it off”- Niketan, 18. 4. Getting Too Close To Scoring A Duck On Your Account Balance via GIPHY “Well, it wasn't until I started working that I really felt the pinch for the first time, since until then one could get away with a few chocolates per sister. But ever since I started drawing my paychecks, the demands have taken a whole new avatar and a few times during my initial years of work, I actually feared I would exhaust my limited bank balance! Now it's not an issue anymore though, it's just a once in a year affair so I am fine with that and grateful for the lovely sisters I have”- Prabhash, 26. 5. Playing Puppet To The Sister's Demands via GIPHY “Imagine having to concede to all of your sister's demand for an entire day just to keep up with the spirit of the day? Over the years we've maintained this one Raksha Bandhan ritual without a miss and even today, the day comes with an unspoken agreement between the two of us that we'd do whatever she plans for the day without questioning it. Trust me that can be pretty crazy than it sounds. I had once been tortured to sport my kurta-pyjama and tika to a posh restaurant we went to for dinner”- Devvrat, 25. 6. 'Sooni Kalaai' On The Day Of Rakhi via GIPHY “It isn't much but as a kid, I had once had to spend Raksha Bandhan at a relative's house in a different town. There was no one to tie a rakhi on my wrist in that house and I suddenly felt terrified at the thought of having a “sooni kalaai” on the day, despite having a sister of my own. When I told my daadi about it, she tied a mauli around my wrist. Actually, that did make me feel a little better”, says Kaushik, 25. Those were some pretty strange(and funny) fears these guys have had. Let us know in the comments if you've got some “Raksha Bandhan fears” of your own.
