What's the point of giving your sisters money on a particular day? Why not just give it to her if she ever needs it or asks you?

And this:

It means 'a bond of protection', andRaksha Bandhan signifies that the strong must protect the weak from all that’s evil.



...seems kinda patronizing, no? A women is weak and needs a man to protect her from all the 'evils' out there? Kinda backwards, isn't it?

I applaud the sentiment though...and think the bonds between siblings should remain strong if possible. Hopefully the annual cash settlement isn't just a symbolic gesture after a year's worth of neglect, disinterest and attempt at controlling one's sisters.

Holy crap. I only lost $100. Looks like I got off easy. Only 1 sister but me and my wife's sister are tight so she ties one on me too.

It's called tradition. Lot's of traditions are a little dated. Santa Claus? Really. Guy's been dead for years. It's old school and in the past they'd receive thoughtful gifts. Men are lazy so they just give money now.

I bet when Schneider turns 38, he will have broken all of Luongo's records.

Yeah, i agree, many traditions don't really make sense anymore. I do like the symbolism behind the tradition of Rakhi...which is what's most important, but with every tradition, it tends to get monetized and soon the monetary connection becomes the predominant thing about the tradition....and the daily thoughts and deeds that are supposed to be represented by the day of remembrance or marking or celebration, become just a day to symbolically do something, like give money, to make up for or in lieu of what was and is supposed to be a daily act of love and respect between siblings.

Also, the tradition continues the notion and stereotype that women are reliant on men, especially in the Indian or Punjabi culture, when from what i've read, isn't supposed to be the case since according to the Sikh religion, you're all supposed to be equal.

I guess that's what happens when Sikhs start copying and following Hindu based traditions. And now that money is being made by businesses, there's no hope of returning it to its roots i suppose....look at all the other 'traditions' from other cultures that have been corrupted....Rakhi is and will be no different i reckon.

You guys pay your sisters with your own money? From my experience, it's always been the money that the parents give the guy :lol:
