Rakshabandhan 2020: Here’s How You Can Celebrate Quarantine Rakhi

Like many other festivals, this year Rakshabandhan festivities are going to be different. Many siblings will be unable to visit each other due to the COVID-19 imposed travel restrictions. 

But let the celebrations continue because the brother-sister bond needs to be cherished!

Here are 5 ways you can celebrate quarantine Rakhi! Read on.

Virtual hugs and blessings 

Even if we can’t meet our sibling, thanks to technology, we can easily see them via a video call. Let the Rakhi celebrations be virtual this time. If you can’t meet them in person, send your hugs and blessings virtually.

Cook their favourite food! 

What is a festival without delicious food and mouth-watering sweets? Let quarantine life not hold you back from eating your favourite dishes. Go ahead and cook your sibling’s favourite meal, whatever it is you would have prepared on Rakhi. Alternatively, you could also send them their favourite dishes or sweets! 


Send them a video message.

You may not be able to celebrate Rakhi together, but you can still make your sibling feel special. Send them a short video message, recalling all your favourite memories and your exclusive Rakhi wish for them.

If you are meeting your brother or sister this Rakhi, don’t forget social distancing! 

The government has announced Unlock 3, and there are no restrictions on meeting family ( if you are residing in the same city). So, if you are meeting your siblings this time, make sure to mask up and practise social distancing amid the celebrations. That’s only the new normal and we must embrace it.

Plan your next trip! 

This Rakshabandhan plan that long-pending trip with your sibling. Travel restrictions have already begun to ease up, and soon we all will be able to go on a vacation again. This Rakhi, give them a travel voucher or plan a trip with your sibling; it is undoubtedly the best gift you can give them.
