Just wanted to give you a heads-up . . . August 2 is Raksha Bandhan, or Rakhi Day. This is my favorite Indian holiday, which celebrates the love between brothers and sisters. It falls on a different day each year, because it's set according to the lunar calendar, so you just have to remember to Go*gle it to find out when it is.
Siblings celebrate by exchanging bracelets to symbolize the bond of love that ties them together. Brothers pledge to protect and love their sisters, and sisters pledge their lifelong love for their brothers. They also exchange sweets to represent the sweet lifelong bond they share.
