591. Anna, show your hand.

Anna is the tamil word for Big brother. Raksha Bandhan is a day when all the girls in India tie raakis ( a piece of thread) around the wrists of their brothers. It is also a day when girls strategically tie raakis on the hands of guys they don't like. The rogues in college have more number of raakis tied around their wrist on Raksha Bandhan day.

The best advice I can give to the men is to go on a hiding during Raksha Bandhan celebrations. The girls will never tie raakis around the wrist of handsome men. So if you are a good looking dude, you need not worry. If you are a John Abraham, Hrithick, Aamir look alike, you can walk like a king on this day.

Let me share my horrific experience.  It was the year 2001. I was doing my 3rd year engineering during that time.  In that year raksha bandhan fell on 4th august (saturday) and friendship day fell on 5th august ( sunday ) . As both the days fell on a weekend, both the days were celebrated on friday ( 3rd august 2001). We were not told whether we were tied by a raakhi or a friendship band. Unfortunately I had around 30 raakhis around my wrist at the end of that day. No bachelor should go through the same pain.

This is one Anna 

This is another Anna 

But the sad part of the story is that the above two Annas were never tied with a Raaki in their whole life. 

This is another Anna. 

Chronicwriter was in love with this Anna during his college days.

The following picture was the Anna of our country (Thanks to Charan for this picture)
