Raksha Bandhan bringing brothers and sisters together

3 hours
First broadcast:
Tuesday 20 August 2013

Join the debate with Nihal at 10. He's asking, does Raksha Bandhan really bring brothers and sisters together? It's Raksha Bandhan today and I am sure many of you will be marking the day by visiting your brothers and showing your love and respect for him by tying a rakhi. In return, your brother will promise to love and protect you and of course give you money. But does it really mean anything or is it just a tradition you've carried on because you have to? After 11, Nihal speaks to Renuka David about her new book I Saw a Sunbird which is about a young girl's journey from Sri Lanka to England.
