The excitement and preparation regarding Rakhi can be quite hard to ignore especially if you are living in North India right now. However, while the festival of rakhi can be pretty exciting if you have a sister, it can suck a bit if you don’t have one. Fret not, we have got you covered. Even if you don’t have a sister we will share with you some awesome ways in which you can celebrate rakhi. So sit back and take notes.
1. Do your share of good deeds
When was the last time you took some time out of your busy schedule and did something that would make a difference in somebody else’s life? So why not take this opportunity to return something to society. Maybe visit a nearby orphanage or old age home with some gifts and put a smile on the face of those who aren’t as lucky as you are. If socializing isn’t your thing then maybe you can do some bit for the environment? Plant a tree or maybe water the lawn. In short, dedicate some of your time in making the world a better place to live in.
2. Spend some bro time
See the silver lining in this situation, no sister means not having to spend your hard-earned money on gifts. It also means that you don’t have to spend the entire day having to sit through tiring rituals. Take this opportunity to spend time with your bros. Go out and plan that long-awaited trip with your bros. Even if you aren’t able to go on a trip, plan an evening with your friends. Crack a few cold beers and laugh about those school time memories.
3. Seize your me-time
How long has that unfinished book been sitting on your table which you promise to finish every other weekend but fail to do so? Or that latest series on Netflix which you have been wanting to binge-watch for a week now. While everyone outside is busy in the hustle and bustle of rakhi celebration, you enjoy the peace and comfort of your own home. Make a hot cup of coffee and sit and on the couch and finally finish reading that unfinished book. Or order a pizza, lie on your bed and make it a day completely dedicated to you.
4. Take a solo trip
Don’t lie, this has been on your agenda for long. You have forever been planning for that dream solo trip of yours that keeps getting cancelled for some reason or the other. Take a couple of days off after Rakhi and just go for it this time. Gift yourself a trip of a lifetime.
So there you go, a complete checklist of how you can make your rakhi awesome even without celebrating it with your sister. You’re welcome.
