Announcement of Spotlight, July-Aug. :Theme Raksha Bandhan

It's time to announce another episode of Spotlight. Last month the spotlight was on "Beans & Lentil" and we received a lot of unique recipes from fellow bloggers. Thank you all, I'll post the round-up soon.
The month of August is dedicated to two main occassions in Hindu calender, One is India's Independence day and another is a festival named "Raksha Bandhan". The later one is a festival which celebrates the sacred and unconditional bond between sisters and brothers. On this festival, as a ritual, a sister ties a colourful Rakhi, a sacred thread that symbolizes love between siblings, around her brother's wrist. Sisters pray for their brother's long life and brother takes vows to guide and protect her throughout the life. Brother presents his sister exciting gifts which symbolizes token of love and affection. As a tradition, Food also plays an important role in every celebration. Sisters also prepare their brother's favorite dishes and serve. On the whole, Raksha Bandhan signifies that the strong must protect the weak from all that’s evil.
So, we thought, Why not we focus on this festival for this edition of "Spotlight". Wouldn't it be nice if we prepare our sister or brother's favorite dishes and remember and relive those valuable moments we shared together? This year, August 21st is Raksha Bandhan

 The theme for this month's Spotlight is "Raksha Bandhan"
