As a feminist, I am least interested in the idea of ‘protection’ given by ‘brothers’ go their “less guarded” sisters. This is the epitome of patriarchal mindset. What I like about this particular festival is the reaffirmation of affection demonstrated among siblings.
I am delighted to see you enter into the bond of sibling-hood with Daria.
I concor with your idea. We will observe all our important festival together
I am going to be straightforward and say that I have no idea of what Rakshabandan is, let alone where I could go to practice it. I am amazed at the fact that you have been able to find time and space to practice your beliefs here. That is fantastic.
Your post really got me wondering about how large the world really is. There are so many religions and cultures that I have no knowledge about. I find it even more amazing that these cultures can coexist within Arizona. I hope to learn so much from this seminar in terms of culture. I am really looking forward to the next class.
First of all, I simply adore the way Mukesh spells my country Croatia. It just reminds me what I always think:we don’t necesarilly need to KNOW something exactly to have an affection for it. I do feel sisterly affection to Mukesh and I am grateful to him to broaden my horizons telling me about his Holiday. I simply wanted to share something nice with him at that moment. Luckilly, I remembered that I always have in my purce the string my girl-friend Joe got from Dalai Lama Himself. It was given to me with love and friendship and that is how I split it in two. It will never be anything but a piece of silk if we don’t keep our minds together, even if we call ourselves brothers and sisters. No ideology, religion or any other sociological background for me in it. It was a pure act of an individual affaction and I would like us all to keep it in mind like that. Bless you!
Hope you enjoyed the Rakhi day… thousands of miles away from home….
