Raksha Bandhan - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

Raksha Bandhan is a ritual of India
That celebrates love
Between brother and sister.
Sister ties rakhi on brother's wrist
Prays for his well-being
Brother vows to protect her.

The brother vows to protect his own
But not to other's sister
Why it is so? It's wrong.
This is the shortfall of this ritual
It must be included in the vow
Because the problem lies in man's mind.
