It is a beautiful festival. But let this be against misogyny. I would appreciate if all genders tie rakhi to each other. Or better still, tie rakhi to the one who will protect you. Men, women, transperson – immaterial. If protection is the essence of the festival, let's make it real. Protect the ones who need protection, but more importantly, empower them so that they don't need to tie you a rakhi tomorrow.
You know what I mean?
