Rakhi is one of the most popular festivals in India. And like all other major festivals, this one too is celebrated with great pomp, zeal, and with indifference to caste, creed, and language. Sisters wear bright new clothes and adorn their houses with brightly coloured decorations. However, it's the string of rakhi, holding a reservoir of emotions, which forms the crux of the festival. It's synonymous to the relationship between a brother and sister. On this pious occasion, if unfortunately you are unable to be with your beloved brother or sister then you can always send your wishes through greeting cards. No matter how far away you are in distance; cards are perhaps your best call to express your feelings to your loved ones when you cannot reach them.
