Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan is so much more than tying a rakhi, eating sweets and exchanging presents. It represents the sacred bond shared between a brother and his sister. The tying of the rakhi literally translates into the “Knot of Protection”, which it essentially is. We’ve all heard the mythological tale where Goddess Lakshmi tied a Rakhi to the demon Bali, making him her brother and vowing to ever protect her. And this is where the roots of this auspicious festival were found.

Our siblings are the first real adversaries we know, and grow to love. The bond shared between a brother and sister is nothing short of beautiful. They may fight all day, but when the going gets hard, it’s only one’s siblings that one can really fall back on. The most precious moments growing up, whether it was pulling each other’s legs, having a full-­‐blown wrestling match, family vacations, or those rare moments of bonding, are shared between siblings.

The rituals demand that brothers gift their sisters something whence they tie the rakhi to their wrists. And Metro Shoes encourages you to celebrate this festival with gusto and revel in the joy of gifting. Gift your sister a pair of Metro shoes and watch her face light up exactly how it used to when you were children, and she complained to your mom about your shenanigans!

Pamper your sibling this Raksha Bandhan season by gifting them a variety of carefully curated foot care products we offer. They could be ideal gifts for the occasion as they are a great way of letting them know you care.

Metro Shoes wishes you and your siblings a very Happy Raksha Bandhan!
