Preparations and decorations are in full swing for this year's Raksha Bandhan, which would fall on August 11. As a result, Vaishali's market is brimming with festivities. After two years of confinement, residents are now returning to the markets in search of rakhis and sweets.
A wide variety of rakhis are available in the market, from simple to trendy. Rakhi with Kundan's work is gaining a lot of attention. Cartoon rakhis like Chota Bheem, and Mickey Mouse rakhis, popular among children, are readily available on the market. Rakhis with single Moli Dhaga and rudraksha, Chandan rakhis, and Kudan are readily available in marketplaces for those who prefer simple styles.
A festive rush can also be witnessed at the sweets hops, shops selling pooja samagri and cosmetics. With this, we can expect the coming festival to be a grand affair.
