Bengaluru, 03 Aug 2017: Raksha Bandhan is a festival that tugs heartstrings and bring up memories of all the time spent playing, sharing, fighting and plotting long adventures with your beloved sibling. Distance, Time and Age cannot change this deep connect. While most of the conversation around Raksha Bandhan has always been about the ‘gift’, Amazon.in continues with its messaging of #DeliverTheLove to inspire brothers and sisters to meet and celebrate this day together.
With themodern lifestyle of constant hustle-bustle and family members scattered aroundthe world, more often than not, sisters courier the Rakhi while the brothersmail the gifts.
