The festival of Rakshabandhan was celebrated yesterday and the internet was full of paisa kahan hai memes. The celebrations this year had some small differences than previous years – girls tied rakhis to their sisters and pets (so cute!) and face masks were an important part of the festivities (because safety first!). Take a look.
Here’s a girl applying tilak and performing aarti of her doggo before tying him a rakhi.

Many people started a new tradition of tying face masks along with rakhis and gifting hand sanitizers along with mithai and chocolates keeping in mind the health precautions of the coronavirus.

An eco-friendly twist was also given to the festival with many opting for plantable rakhis made from clay and filled with seeds. A few said no to plastic rakhis and made their own handcrafted versions with fresh flowers and leaves.
