Talking about rakhis brings back this one incident that I cant stop laughing whenever the topic of rakhis is raised.

In school there was this road Romeo who was madly behind this girl. And on the day of rakhi she cornered him with a rakhi – a well laid out plan.

We all thought he would bunk the class but to our surprise he was there with his arms willingly extended.

She tied the rakhi to her own surprise I guess and was happy. But she had absolutely no idea what was coming her way.

Romeo looks at the rakhi has a smile and instead of cash or candies had this remark; “tu meri behan aur may sala behan chod”

Poor Juliet didn’t stop crying for a whole year till she moved to another school.

My apologies to alpha for sullying her pristine blog.

The disclaimer was unnecessary. Even those who protest/will protest/already protesting very well know that what you mentioned is the trend in schools. Remember, blogs are still censor free;)

Matrix: sorry, Golden words are never deleted. It hurts me to know you are condemned for bachelorhood for life in my blog.:(

Ashwin: comon now..you were one of the boys and now you nicely twist the story.

Pallavi: you too?! haha. You thought they were buried and all.

Angel: I'll put an end to your longings. You see Matrix a few comments before you? He even gives out candies as incentive.

Rhyncus: No, your school wasn't any less corrupt than mine. I guess in our society incest behaviour is prefered to plain girl-boy love. 'Licence to Flirt' it was called.

Toinks: Don't sulk, Matrix bhaiya is always there.

Richa: How did you not fall to peer pressure? what were you made of?

LOL @ I’m in it for the cash, of course

Where I grew up, the 'rakhi brother' funda was used by wannabe couples to spend oodles of time together without anyone getting overly suspicious. Arre, he's her rakhi brother na, everyone would say. The ones in the know would do the snide-smiles-nudge-nudge routine detailed in your post.
I musta grown up in a decadent place.

Interesting post :). brought back some memories. In class 7, 2 of my best friends had a big crush on the same girl about which she came to know. On "rakhi day", both fellows were absconding from the class while she tried to chase them around the school :P. She did not succeed but moved to another school in 2 months anyway so I guess it didnt matter. The rakhi is definitely a useful tool you girls have.
*repeats your disclaimer and applies the same to this comment*

Gabby, Yeah he tried waking me up with that method..that creep. luckily I sleep with my eyes closed. (I know, how random!)

Zo: Next time consider taking less drugs.

Matrix: If I were you, I wouldn't admit this. I guess you were a potential threat to all those girls... or no one was interesting in marrying you. Candies were the added bonus.

Whoops the girls did not ask for a rakhi but they wanted to tie it !!! Have to be more careful with typos and what not !!

When I was doing my Masters, there was a huge hungama in the class newsgroup when a bunch of girls explicitly asked for a rakhi from a guy on rakhi day - publicly on the newsgroup. Wah kya scene tha !!

star, will you believe it if i said, i really like the idea of tying threads and claiming brotherhood. I wanted to bring that up and also stop this cheesiness assosciated with rakhis as you mention in your example. I hope to change the world with that disclaimer. Go and read patrix's comment box for further references to Disclaimers/deleting posts and such.

I have a confession to make. When I am in a hurry I glance over your post. Then I close the window and get back to work. I come back and read it at leisure and then make a proper comment.

However, given the fiasco of my not replying to your last deleted post- I had to hurridly formulate a comment this time. Which in hind-sight makes no sense.

See what you did you me?

This is my real comment:
The anecdote was fine, till the disclaimer. That disclaimer is ridiculous. You shouldnt have to do things like that.

Your story also reminded me of this old Hindi movie, where the lady was cheating on her husband but gave the guy she was cheating with a rakhi in front of her husband to prove to him that she wasnt cheating.... kinda tacky.

Gabby: me and bully? No way! Ask my blood brother. He's the one who put mirchi powder in my eyes (I'm actually blind, but i pretend i'm fine)

Star: Why will he keep rakhis that I 'intended' for him? Answer that first. *just a ploy to keep you commenting again and again*


Name: No, please lets stop this guessing game now. You need some rest dude!

Patrix: I didn't even tie you a rakhi and you are all set to protect me? *sniff* Maybe one of these days, I will tie you the rakhi..Keep some cash handy. Trust you to start raking up the issue I am desperately trying to bury. Nahin re, I actually mean that. As regards mean/nasty people, they can go to hell...I'll tie myself a rakhi and protect me.

Is the 'disclaimer' for those who might find it offensive and lead to another post deletion? Woman, you are getting old and running scared these days...bindaas bol, apun tere saath hai.

"Ask my blood brother" LOL!

Good post.

Btw, the poor guy has been subjected to so much bullying all his childhood by you, his is no longer a valid statistic. :) People, he is a sweetheart, very gentle and un-alpha-like :)
