Mumbai : August, 05 2011:

Today globalization has become a buzzword with everybody moving to different cities or countries either for job, studies, to pursue a hobby or due to matrimony. The impact of globalisation is felt most during festive and joyous occasions when those who are away are unable to partake in the celebrations with their near and dear ones.

One such festival is Raksha Bandhan that marks the everlasting love between a brother and sister. Through the ceremonial tying of the 'Rakhi', the brother promises to protect the sister from all harm, while the sister prays to God to protect the brother from all evil. The close familial ties in India make it a day to be celebrated with much gusto across the country.

However, for those who cannot be with their sisters/brothers on this day, Blue Dart has introduced Rakhi Express - a unique customized solution that will break geographical barriers and ensure timely delivery of the 'Rakhi' anywhere in Blue Dart country and internationally.
