A message to all our readers
This year, Raksha Bandhan is indeed going to be different on so many levels than the other years because of the pandemic at hand so we wouldn't suggest crowding at markets or shops for your purchases. We understand that during such an occasion, stepping out for a while to grab a few things might be essential. But do keep the social distancing norms in mind and maintain your hygiene standards, so that you can celebrate further without any health hindrances.
