August!! A month filled with festivals…I just love this month as my 2 fav festivals join hands together along with the most precious relationship.

Every festival brings many old memories and more on the way to cherish for lifelong. 

This month start festivals which goes till March and we start making and storing more memories. 

Starting with Independence day full month excite for upcoming festivals.

Festival of freedom – Independence Day (15th August)


I still remember when I was in school August means practicing for my fav day 15th August “Independence Day”. 

The day we celebrate our independence which not only brings happiness but also responsibility being a right citizen for our country.

Singing patriotic songs, parade and flag hosting gives so much proud moment in life which can never be explained in words.


Festival of friendship


Friendship week gives not only time to well spend with friends but also let them know how much they have importance in your life. 

Friends are always someone whom you can rely on for life and it is said if you carry your friendship for 7 years you are no more friends, you are more than a family. 

I feel blessed I have such friends in life. 


Treasure your friends as they are direct blessings from God.

Festival of Emotion: Rakhi/Rakshabandhan


Bonded with love, care and promise to stick together in every situation of life, that is only one relationship it’s bond of brother and sister. 

Now if you are looking for gifting ideas for Rakhi, check this out.

With sweets, tikka and one thread which is filled with love and unconditional bond this festival are one of the lovely festivals which is enjoyed by everyone in the family.  


Festival of God’s own country Kerela – Onam


I studied in the south and Onam is what I have seen getting celebrated with great enthusiasm and love. Festival as sweet as people of Kerela and Onam decorations is certainly taken away the heart.

Celebrated 10 days this festival is one of the major celebrations of this month.
