Youngsters have taken a fancy for a funky bracelet rakhi this year depicting 'Angry Birds'. The Rakhis with LED images of Angry Birds on Rakhi along with presents in the form chocolate boxes are also available. Little sisters are buying this exclusive rakhi for the festival to be celebrated on August 10 in big way which is also available on-line.
It seems that rakhis consisting of threads and
threaded designs are no more in vogue. Raksha Bandhan is no more the
rakhi thread, roli and traditional sweets. The market is flooded with
Rakhis with the images of cartoon characters, chocolate boxes and
pastries as the festival treats this time.
As we know that Angry Birds Toons is a Finnish
animated TV series depicting the rivalry between the birds and the
pigs, which has become very popular with the kids across the world.
Well produced cartoon pictures that depict comedic adventures among
birds and pigs as well as against each other amuse children a lot.
Not only, are episodes of Angry Birds Toons being
released on a schedule of one per week every Sunday with viewership
running into many millions. Also, a video game called 'Angry Birds
Space' is also popular among children.
The Rakhis have not only become fanciful but also
costlier. A reasonable 'designer's rakhi' costs over Rs. 100 this
time. Raksha Bandhan celebrates the bond of affection between
brothers and sisters. The festival is observed by Hindus, Jains, and
many Sikhs in India and around the world.
