For me , Rakhi is not only about love between a brother and a sister but its also the love and bond between a nanand (husband’s sister) and a bhabhi. In Marwari’s the nanand ties a ‘Lumba’ (a kind of bangle-rakhi) to the bhabhi as a symbol of love and affection.My nanand’s takes lot of effort to search and get the best lumbas for us.
In this picture you can see me with my devrani (mehndi green and red saree) and nanand (beige and black saree) and wearing our beautiful lumbas. It was a coincidence that all three of us were draped in six yards. Picture toh definitely banata hai!
My saree is a result of the raid I did in my mother’s cupboard! 🙂 It’s a pure crepe saree with Jamawar border and a long pallu. Earlier it’s was only grape green in colour and I was keen on adding a bright colour to it. So, I got a raw silk magenta thin border run through it and matched the blouse accordingly.
