You and I, in this beautiful world. Green grass, blue sky. You and I.

Siblings are perhaps the closest to us than any one else. We grow up together, we know each other well and there is this understanding that is really hard to find elsewhere. Also, we belong to the same generation and loyalty is very strong. Given the importance of this relation, there are quite a few occassions when this relation is celebrated, especially by the Hindus. One such day is the last day of the Tihar festival which celebrates the life-long relation between brothers and sisters, called the Bhai Tika. This is truely a beautiful day and a very apt way to celebrate this bond.

On this day the sisters perform a special puja for their brothers for their long lives and prosperity and the brothers give them gifts as a way of appreciating their love. This picture exemplifies this bond. These brother and sister look really adorable walking through the market. This was taken at Bhaktapur, Nepal. You can see them happily walking hand-on-hand. May be the little brother is saying to his sister that he will gift her those beautiful bags when he grows up.

  1. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

  2. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  3. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

  4. Very touchy: both the Picture and message it carries. The emotion evoked by this picture is powerful and shows how important a good caption and description can be to direct the viewer’s thoughts. Simply a great catch of momentary moment. I think Angela Coles cropped this picture later to make her point of view vivid. Good work indeed.
