Orkut celebrate Raksha Bandhan!

Sagari Venkata, (orkut operations team) Say's

One of the most powerful things about orkut is the way it's able to strengthen the bonds between friends. With scraps, photos, chat, video chat, and much more, we do our best to make it simple and easy to keep in touch with the people you care about.

That's why when we learned about Raksha Bandhan, a festival taking place today, celebrating the love, affection and protection of siblings and close friends, we thought it would be a fun thing to highlight to the orkut community.

Popular in parts of India and other countries around the world, tradition has it that women tie "rakhis," or charm bracelets, on the wrists of the men they think of as brothers (whether they're related or not). We designed a special doodle to celebrate:

Regardless of whether you plan on celebrating Raksha Bandhan, it's always nice to have a reminder of how important friends and family are in all of our lives. Take a moment to send a scrap to someone you care about– they'll appreciate it!
