We’ve put together 7 such heartfelt Rakhi messages that you can send to your brother or sister this Raksha Bandhan, along with something else that will make them feel special. Here they are:

A lot of families bond over home cooked meals around the dinner table. If your family was like that, you can write…

“As Raksha Bandhan approaches, my heart overflows with memories of our cherished moments together. Do you remember the laughter that echoed around the dinner table as we exchanged stories from our days? From the aroma of Mom's cooking to the friendly bickering over the last samosa, every mealtime became a precious occasion filled with love and camaraderie. Even though we're apart this Raksha Bandhan, I find solace in reminiscing about those unforgettable dinners and the countless inside jokes we shared over our favourite dishes. May this day be a reminder of the unbreakable bond we share, woven not just by blood but by the countless laughter-filled conversations.”
